It’s amazing Clint Eastwood who co starred in a western way back in the late 1950’s early 1960’s has really done some great work in his later years, which should prove to some people who think they are to old to achieve certain goals in their lives because they feel their best years are behind them are only limiting themselves by their own self doubt and fear.

I have just seen J Edgar, the movie has been out for about 3 weeks now and was not on my must see list, but I have already seen everything else that is not an animated film.

So tonight I said what the heck the only thing worth seeing is J. Edgar. Why is it the movies I think I’m not going to like are the ones that I like the most? This isn’t the first time I felt this way, I did not think I would like the movie Courageous but I wound up loving it.

Some actors star in that one movie that really shows what they can do, their defining movie, that is what this movie is for Leonardo DiCaprio, he did a great job with this character.

This movie starts out from J Edgar’s early career in 1919 until his death. There are people around today that can remember the things he had his hands in such as his conflicts with Martin Luther King Jr. and the Kennedy’s amongst others.

Most people did not care much for the man, but this movie showed who the man behind all the controversy was really about. This movie had you actually caring for the character. DiCaprio did a great job with this role you actually feel he was J Edgar. The acting is superb by the entire cast.

It is a shame with all the animated family films and action films out this time of year this movie won’t be the box office hit it deserves to be, but I have a feeling the Oscar committee will give it, it’s just due, and if this film doesn’t win an Oscar than it will be confirmation that the so called decision makers on the Oscar committee do not have a clue.

If you have not seen this movie yet, go see it, you will LOVE it, especially the people who were around during the lifetime of Hoover and all others will learn a little American history that you probably were not taught in school.

5 Stars out of 5.
