We'd Like to Thank You... Edgar Hoover

J. Edgar
I was looking forward to seeing this movie mainly because Leo was in it. The boy on the other hand was a fan of the fact it was directed by Clint Eastwood. Overall I think it was a good pick on our part.

I will admit that it was a bit confusing. The movie goes back and forth within several time periods. You can kind of tell based on whether Leo's in his old age make-up or not, but still the scenes all felt a bit out of order.

You definitely lose Leo in his character and even though I'm clearly on a first name basis with him, you really forget it was him in there.

I do think it was a good movie, but honestly I can't see myself sitting through to watch again. Although I do think that watching it a second time, would probably be a little less confusing.


  1. I'd like to see this one but I might not catch it in the theater.

  2. I haven't been to the movies to see a new release since HP this summer, but I saw the posters for this while I was there to see West Side Story and it looked good! Mostly because I've always been quite interested in Hoover and figured Leo would do a good job :)

  3. We've been debating about going and seeing this one! If it's got leo in it, then we're assuming it has to be pretty good!
