Obviously we don't know why he let himself go ... was it for an upcoming role or did he come to the realization that Hollywood's focus has shifted to the younger actors so he says screw it, I'm not going to get those lead roles anymore so pft, don't care? Who knows but I wish he'd pull himself out of this rut he's in.
There are still lead roles to be had. Tom Cruise, Denzel, Liam Neeson, Johnny Depp ... all older than Crowe. Hugh Jackman, Mark Ruffalo, Daniel Craig, and Robert Downey Jr. aren't far behind.

Besides, even if he can't get lead roles, supporting roles still pay the bills.

No Country for Old Men is a very high quality movie. Full of drama and suspense and superb acting.

Was also very pleased with Antman. Not a serious movie but so much fun.

Catch Me if You Can

Based on an amazing true story.

Star studded talent and vintage Spielberg.

The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928), just saw it and found it very moving with one of the most intense endings I have ever seen.

The critics didn't like it but I totally enjoyed "The Ninth Life of Louis Drax," a psychological thriller with some good twists and turns, a deceptively clever villain, a little tender tugging at the heart strings and a hopeful ending.

It takes you on a trip through the mind of a little boy who has had nine near death experiences.

I would recommend any film directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer.

I just saw "The Greatest Showman" and I was absolutely blown away! Most "Wow" movie I have seen in YEARS!!

If you have not seen it and you like musicals like "Les Miserables", "Chicago", and "Mamma Mia" (the original movie, not the sequel), do yourself a favor and see this movie!!

(Btw, the critics did not like it -- main complaint was that it didn't portray P.T. Barnum accurately -- but most of the audience reviews are VERY positive. 95% of Google viewers liked it, and with a budget of $84 million, it made about $435 million at the box office. I think a case can be made that many reviewers allow their political views to affect their movie reviews.)
