Clever and entertaining enough to recommend even to members of the 1%
It's a movie as timely as it is provocative and amazingly, for much of its running time, it is weirdly funny.
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
Oh christ this film is boring. About 30 minutes in I asked my partner when was anything going to start happening and he responded with 'I don't think it is one of those films where anything really does happen'. And he was pretty much right.Firstly, this film is about a lady who invents a new type of mop. I didn't know this before I started watching but I'm quite sure that if I had known this fact I wouldn't of bothered watching it. Let me repeat that - this film centers around the invention of a new type of mop. Yes. A mop. A mop for cleaning floors. If you like rather mundane cliched films about mops then you will love this. In the film's defense, Jennifer Lawrence was fantastic, as was De Niro (obvs) but the story simply wasn't interesting or exciting enough for such a long film - it reminded me of one of those afternoon movies on Channel 5 (UK). This film kind of reminded me of another recent film (also staring De Niro) - The Intern - which, although it wasn't an amazing film, it definitely brought me more joy than 'Joy' did.I try to find something positive in everything, even if I don't like it, so I'll give a special mention to the costume designers. I liked the costumes. There you go. That was the joy I took from this film. Pretty dresses.
I was not drawn to Joy when it was first released because it just looked like a made for TV movie. I was surprised when Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance and still had no real desire to see Joy. Joy popped up on my new releases list on Apple TV today so I thought I would just watch the first 10 minutes to get an idea whether it would be watching or not. After 10 minutes I knew this was worth watching so my husband and I watched it and to both of our surprise we really liked it. Jennifer Lawrence was outstanding in her role as Joy. I've always thought Lawrence was an amazing actress since I saw her in Winter's Bone. She is the real deal. She is destined for more success with each film she is in. DeNiro is amazing as always. It is a wonderful story that should have received better reviews. I can understand why it wasn't a box office hit but it is definitely worth watching.
Lol.I guess you have to be slightly more sensitive than a brick to get this movie. I was relatively bored at the start and came close to switching it off but it developed into a very emotionally satisfying and inspiring movie mainly thanks to the performance of the lead actress and the character who never did give up. I don't care if it is fictional. Maybe there were so many bad reviews because she didn't see herself as a victim. Haters always gonna hate.
Joy is the story of the title character, who rose to become founder and matriarch of a powerful family business dynasty.I must admit I wasn't really interested in this film in the beginning the joy and trailer didn't make this film sound that interesting. I ended up finding a copy of it and decided to give it ago, I was so impressed with what I saw. David O. Russell has crafted a really fascinating and special film. It is a film about strength and perseverance fighting for what you want and never giving up until you get it. It really feels like a fairy tale, Joy's grandmother narrates the story, it reminded me of a Cinderella story or Wizard of OZ, it has a magical quality to it. It looks at how as children we have dreams of what we want to be or do when we grow up, then life happens and we forget what it was we original wanted. Everyone does a great job here, Jennifer Lawrence really carries the movie you really feel for her and the situations her family put her in. I feel she really deserved her Oscar Nomination for this role. I felt really inspired after watching this.
