Country Strong

Michael the Moviegoer – @@

In my mind, I can see Gwyneth Paltrow watching last year as Jeff Bridges won his first Oscar as Bad Blake, a has-been alcoholic country singer in “Crazy Heart.” I can feel the manipulative forces at work in trying to bring Paltrow her second Oscar by having her basically imitate that role. Therefore, no points at all for originality. Some scenes in this trailer are nothing more than embarrassing. If this movie is fun and silly like “Pure Country” it could become a guilty pleasure. But if it takes itself too seriously as Oscar bait, it’s going to be a disaster.

Unbelievable. What were they thinking? It’s the “Infamous” of alcoholic country singer movies. And Gwyneth was a singer in that one, too! Depending on how the Oscars go this year, next year Gwyneth could end up playing a singer who gets trapped under a rock and has to cut her arm off, or a singer who creates a social networking website!

Michael’s Rebuttal:

Or maybe she’ll end up starring in “Burlesque 2”!

Starts singing in Los Angeles for Oscar voters on December 22, 2010, then goes wide January 7. 2011.

Check in tomorrow when we review the trailer for the completed film version of Ernest Hemingway’s unfinished novel “Garden of Eden.”
