Review: Live By Night

Cohesiveness is an aspect of movies that holds great importance but isn’t readily noticed. Movies are assembled by scenes, of course, leading to a sort of storytelling puzzle: making sure all of these varied scenes appear in an order best suited to reveal the message of the story being told. However, movie makers are far too quick to dispose or diminish this fine interlocking mesh of events and dialogue in favor of a particular aspect of the movie, maybe the scenery, or the action. In the end, though, audiences notice this, maybe not immediately, but as a jarring disaffection to the story being told. Ben Affleck’s Live By Night takes this potentially minor incongruence and blows it up the be a major fault, highlighting so many mood and scenery changes and pushing to the forefront so much action that the entire movie becomes a mess, beginning on the joyful note of a crime-comedy such as Goodfellas and ending with a melodramatic moan as something akin to the end of a Dawson’s Creek episode.

Flexible Movie Tickets: What’s Coming

With the recent completion of a pair of 1.2 billion dollar deals, the parent company of AMC has agreed to purchase Odeon and UCI Cinemas Group in Europe, and Carmike Cinemas here in the United States. The Dalian Wanda Group now owns the largest theater chains in China, Europe and the United States, making them the largest theater group in the world. If you are a member of the AMC Stubs program, there are now over 600 US locations where you can use your benefits. The good news, however, may end there because one of the driving forces behind the acquisition of Odeon and UCI is to gain their inside knowledge about flexible ticket pricing.
