Hoboken Movie Lineup: 12/20/2013
Bow Tie Cinemas Movie Times Hoboken NJ
Funny that as we get closer to Christmas, Bow Tie Cinemas doesn’t have any holiday flicks showing this weekend. Wonder why? But we do have what is supposed to be one of the “award winning” movies of 2013: American Hustle starring Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper. The story has a NJ connection, since it is based on the whole Abscam sting operation.
“A con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive British partner, Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild FBI agent, Richie DiMaso. DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia.”
The movie got almost entirely “good” reviews, despite many subtle back-handed comments saying it was “superficial, but fun,” and “delivering less than it promises,” and “nowhere near the greatness of Goodfellas.”
And one of the rare negative reviews simply said it was “loose, wandering and monotonous.”
Maybe one day we’ll see it when it’s on DVD. I often wonder if pre-release hype can skew reviewers into feeling they have to like something “just because” they’ve been sort of programmed to.
