    Review: “LBJ”

    By kyle | October 19, 2017

    Woody Harrelson makes for a highly compelling President Johnson in a movie marred by director Rob Reiner’s directorial choices. My review.

      What do you expect from the Christian Bale/Amy Adams movie about Dick Cheney?

      Ugh. Adam McKay is making it. I hated The Big Short.

      “It’s too bad Woody Harrelson’s LBJ is wearing distracting drugstore makeup,” which, judging by the photo above the review, makes him look like J. Edgar Hover, not LBJ.

      It’s been fifty years now… and to be reminded of that bastard LBJ is still quite unpleasant.
