The Master





-A Naval veteran arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future - until he is tantalized by The Cause and its charismatic leader.

-Jesse Plemons, Ambyr Childers, Amy Adams, Rami Malek, Joaquin Phoenix, Phillip Seymour Hoffman

This sleepy movie is based on the birth of the Church of Scientology and its founder L. Ron. Hubbard.  I really do not have much to say about this movie - other than be sure to have an extra large caffeinated beverage with you when attempting to stay awake during this 2 1/2hr movie.  You will undoubtedly feel as though time stood still during this picture.  With moments of intrigue and peeks of "Oh this is going to get good now..."  you just may find yourself running a grocery list in your head.

The overall tone of this - to me - was very Rosemary's Baby ... which I say reluctantly, because that movie is actually a must watch .. whereas this one is a must do dishes!

The only positive thing I can really say about this movie is that Scientologists don't like it.

Nevertheless, I am giving this snooze fest one box of popcorn.
