Oscars 2017: Fences

Rotten Tomato | IMDB

Movie info from RT:

Denzel Washington directed and stars in this adaptation of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which centers on a black garbage collector named Troy Maxson in 1950s Pittsburgh. Bitter that baseball’s color barrier was only broken after his own heyday in the Negro Leagues, Maxson is prone to taking out his frustrations on his loved ones. Both Washington and co-star Viola Davis won Tonys for their performances in the 2010 revival of the play. Stephen Henderson, Jovan Adepo, Russell Hornsby, and Mykelti Williamson round out the supporting cast.

My thoughts:

  • I have to be completely honest. I was more than an hour into the movie and I just stopped watching. I found the movie soooo boring. SOOOO BORING. I am so sorry.
  • I only was able to watch more than an hour into the movie because of Queen Viola. Denzel just looked like he’s performing for the Oscars.
  • I don’t think I can accept the fact that I will spend two hours of my 48-hour weekend off to watch a bunch of people talk to each other. If I wanted to watch a bunch of people talking to each other, I would watch Critical Role (my current obsession).
  • I will do my best to finish this movie some other time, but for now… no. And I am truly sorry.
