Giving cinematic praise where it's due. Raining down hellfire where it's not.

Taking Woodstock (2009)
I don't know that I would have bothered seeing this if it wasn't for Ang Lee. Not the director you first think of for this kind of movie. What you get are some really interesting characters, nice performances, authentic set pieces, and a quirky story based on actual events.
It felt uneven at times. A few scenes were simply wedged in because they needed to go somewhere; but overall it was entertaining.
