Three sentence movie reviews: Whiplash

 In Three Sentence Movie Reviews


Hey, remember how J.K. Simmons won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for this film?*  It’s because he’s amazing, as is Miles Teller.  This was tense and engrossing and one of those films I was glad I was watching at home so I could talk back to the TV.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.

*It was a really sweet speech, too.

(Also, having put in my time with bands of various forms, I can’t say that Fletcher as a character was doing any good as a teacher, but I was really impressed that when he cut the band off, everyone stopped on a dime.  Back in the day, the inability of my bandmates to stop playing was a constant irritation.)

    I’ve heard so many good things about this, and I still want to see it. So many movies, so little time. I feel like Teller/Simmons is a good combo.

      This is one of those good-but-hard-to-watch movies that means it sometimes doesn’t get watched.
