50/50 Fan Reviews

Film Forum: Did You Take a Chance on 50/50?

With October here, the first weekend in the month saw some new releases taking on scary subject matter. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as a guy who has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in 50/50 while Daniel Craig plays a family man who starts to lose it when he moves into a house with a sinister history in Dream House. Did either film tempt you to head to the theater? Or perhaps you were more interested in this weekend's other new releases, like the light-hearted romantic comedy What's Your Number? or the cop drama Courageous? Give us your weekend movie reviews in the comments!

I saw both Drive and 50/50 this weekend. Drive was weirdly interesting. I won't go as far to say it was good, but it wasn't bad either - it just was. It's definitely thought provoking and intense, but I wouldn't run out and tell people to see it. 50/50 was really good. It certainly made me think a lot about my own mortality and my relationships with family. It was also hilarious, charming and touching.

I went to see Dream House becasue I wanted to save 50/50 for when the theaters weren't so crowded. Dream House was okay. Pretty predictable and really short, but still okay. I didn't feel like I wasted my money.

50/50 was effing incredible. They did such a wonderful job of handling that kind of subject matter. What I loved about it was that the film wasn't trying to take a stance on cancer, it was simply allowing you to experience one person's life as they dealt with the issues surrounding a 50/50 diagnosis. The strain on relationships, friendships, family ties, work, chemo, everything. I didn't even recognize Angelica Houston at first as Joseph Gordon Levitt's mother, but her performance was as poignant and dynamic as you'd expect from an actress of her caliber. Can't say enough good things. Seth Rogan was his usual self, but not in such a way to overshadow the issue or turn it into a "guy" movie. And Anna Kendrick is simply lovely. Joseph Gordon Levitt is subtle and intense and just incredible. Adding this to my home collection as soon as it comes out. GO SEE IT.
