Cineminklings and Larry Crown

The Cineminklings (a group of Ecclesians who love movies) met as a group to view and discuss the new Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts movie, Larry Crown this past Sunday afternoon at the Arclight Theater on Sunset.

Movie Review:
I couldn't go with the Cineminklings this week but reviews for this movie on industry websites have been poor. I am waiting to hear from the group who saw it but I'm not expecting much.

The Weekend Box-Office results are in and Larry Crown seems to be tanking. This is a bit surprising with such high profile and award-winning stars as Roberts and Hanks but there last pairing tanked also.

I think Julia Roberts can still do rom-coms that appeal to the 35 and under crowd but Tom Hanks, not so much. Tom Hanks is looking bloated and aged so he needs to give up rom-com and stay in dramas or super-natural thrillers or if he does rom-com he needs to star paired with older award-winning actresses like Streep, Glen Close, Helen Mirren and Diane Keaton. I do think there is still some rom-com mileage left in Julia Roberts especially if paired with younger male stars like Ryan Reynolds (ala Sandra Bullock) or Gerard Butler or Colin Farrel (ala Jeniffer Aniston) which might be highly entertaining.
