My 2014 Oscar Movie Reviews: Philomena

I'm attempting to watch all the movies that were nominated for an Oscar this year.  I am going to post my review of each one with how I actually felt about the movie.  I'm not going to give a detailed plot because I'm not amazon and you can easily look there... or imdb... or wikipedia...
 
I had never even heard of this movie before I saw it listed as an Oscar nominee.  So, aside from reading the back, I didn't know what it was supposed to be about.

Basically, this movie was slow and boring.  Another nominee that was based on a true story.  Is it an interesting story?  I guess.  Is it a crazy bizarre unusual going-to-make-your-jaw-drop story?  No.  I'm not really sure what about it made it movie worthy.  Yes, Judi Dench is great at what she does.  Aside from that, there's nothing really wow about this movie.  I fell asleep and had to go back a couple times.  It's not a BAD movie... just ... boring.
