And There Were None (1945) - 7/10
An adaptation of Agatha Christie's mystery novel, Ten Little Indians
. I loved some of characters' deadpan lines. The ending was meh as I predicted it, but I can easily imagine people found it a great twist at the time.
Magic Mike - 7/10.
Entertaining, but I cringed all the way through the dance performances.
A shallow film, really. Not much of a story to tell. It also suffers the same problem as The Hurt Locker
has - it started with the POV of one character, then it just switched to the POV of a different character with the first character's story is left seemingly forgotten. Yeah, history repeats itself, but it could be told in a better story structure.
