Gimme Shelter

Vanessa Hudgens does a good job in the role but is it Oscar worthy? No, I will tell you why. This movie is presented in a solid way but what it suffers from is trying to hard to be this Oscar contender. The directing is fine and gritty to where it does look real and I will give the director props for making an authentic movie with a shoestring budget. Vanessa Hudgens does well enough in her first role after her Disney days, I don't count Spring Breakers because she wasn't the main character, and she does carry this movie and everyone else around does fine. Like I said the problem is it feels like everyone is trying to hard. The cinematography is handheld and gritty and it feels like you are on the streets but that's all it has going for it. The pace is fine and the movie keeps going steadily even if you can see each plot point a mile away. Overall it is a good movie but everyone needs to tone it down about trying to get that Oscar. I still don't fault it for feeling small and authentic with good acting. If Vanessa keeps growing and do more films like this I think she will be fine. 7/10
