Monuments Men (2014)
Watched BluRay May 2014
I am sheepishly relieved I did not pay to see this in a movie theater when it was first released. I enjoyed watching this movie, but ended up feeling disappointed by the time I reached the credits.
The pacing of the movie seemed off and the story too disjointed. I barely had time to get to know the characters so I found it difficult to relate to their trials and tribulations.
I also suffer from being one of the few in my immediate family who knows next to nothing about art history. My research project following this review is to answer my own question concerning why the altar panels from a church in Ghent are important? I can understand why Michaelangelo’s Madonna would be priceless, but altar panels? No one ever mentions who the artist was!
