Up-and-coming campaign press secretary Stephen Meyers (Gosling) fins himself in a center of a political scandal involving his boss, Governor Mike Morris (Clooney), which threatens the Governor’s chance of wining the Ohio in his run for the presidential campaign.
Before watching this movie, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The movie was directed by George Clooney, produced by George Clooney, and also starring George Clooney in one of the main roles. So least I can say I was frightened that it was going to be the George Clooney show. But I was really surprised, the movie was actually very good. The acting was fabulous from every single member of the cast, but in my mind the stand out performance was from Ryan Gosling as Stephen Meyers. He was just brilliant, his lines were delivered perfectly and his just general onscreen presence was perfect for the role. He truly made the movie an enjoyable watch as his performance in the main role just shaped the rest of the movie. The rest of the movie, was just a very good political thriller. Although the huge issue surrounding the movie wasn’t anything new or drastic (actually something very imaginable for politicians), the movie was just made so well that you could easily look past the simplistic plot and see the deeper parts of the movie: mainly Gosling’s characters transformation as he is devoured by the world of politics.
A very well made movie, with a stellar cast led by Ryan Gosling, The Ides of March is definitely one of the better political thrillers out there!

Batman (Clooney) is struggling to life with his new partner Robin (O’Donnell), but the two must team together when Gotham comes under-attack from both Mr. Freeze (Schwarzenegger) and Poison Ivy (Thurman).
This movie was fun, but its not a great movie. This movie does fix the big mistake of Batman Forever though, it doesn’t attempt to be serious for the entire movie. It has fun with the one liners from Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze, which is good as some of the lines are extremely corny, and allows for more fun action sequences with a loose plot tying it all together rather than trying to create what seems like a very deep plot but having it flop instead. The performances are entertaining enough, far from being good, but enough that this movie makes a perfect action flick to watch when you are bored and being entertained while having some great laughs.
In terms of Batman movies, this is probably one of the worst. Villains are way over the top in the wrong way, Clooney is probably the worst Batman ever, and more just eye candy to get people to watch the movie, but it is fun none the less. If you are looking for a good Batman movie, skip all but Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, can’t go wrong with those Batman movies!
Bad acting and a very loose plot, but with enough jokes and entertaining action scenes Batman & Robin makes a fun watch.

Matt King (Clooney) deals with his wife being in a coma after a boating accident, the sale of his family estate while he tries to connect and father his two daughters Alex (Woodley) and Scottie (Miller), when Alex drops the bomb on him that his wife was having an affair.
This was a terrible movie. Most of the acting was terrible, and I found myself laughing at all the parts that you should have not been laughing at. Clooney was painful, the only one who could act was Shailene Woodley. Woodley gave a very good performance of Matt’s teenage daughter who attempts to help him confront the man who his wife was having an affair with. The movie was funny, but I’m pretty certain it should not have been that funny, it was one of those movies that are so bad that it’s funny.
Terrible movie that just gets so bad that you can’t help yourself from not laughing. Easily can be missed, your not missing much more than George Clooney running around in sandals, doing nothing.
