The Iron Lady
The Iron Lady is a surprising and intimate portrait of Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep), the first and only female Prime Minister of The United Kingdom. One of the 20th century’s most famous and influential women, Thatcher came from nowhere to smash through barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male dominated world. — (C) Weinstein
Scott’s Take – 2 Stars
Okay so Meryl Streep won an Oscar for her portrayal of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. That is the only reason to watch The Iron Lady, or if you are looking to cure insomnia. Snooze!
The Darkest Hour
The Darkest Hour is the story of five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. The 3D thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects. — (C) Summit
Scott’s Take – 1 Star
The Darkest Hour has my early vote as one of the worst films of 2012. It is pure hot garbage. Rent at your own risk. Buy and you are lighting money on fire.
That’s all for this week. This is the perfect week to catch up on some other recently released movies. Go buy The Muppets or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Next week is much better with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and Shame. Have a great week!
