6 ‘n 90! Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.
Dallas Buyers Club. First Anne Hathaway lost 25 pounds to be in Les Miserables, and now Matthew McConaughey loses even more weight for his role in Dallas Buyers Club. In the future, Academy members won’t vote for best actor but will hold a weigh-in, and whoever comes in lowest will take the Oscar.
Inside Llewyn Davis. Even though critics seem to love Inside Llewyn Davis, fans of folk music probably haven’t been this outraged since Dylan went “electric” at the Newport Folk Festival.
Philomena. This is the story of a woman who was forced by a convent to sign away the parental rights to her young son, and of her 50 year search to find him. You know, sometimes it seems like it takes that long to find a decent movie at the local multiplex, but if you go to see this film, both your search, and Philomena’s, will have a happy ending.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. While not quite a bullseye, Catching Fire is far from being a “bouncer.” In this segment, Katarina Aguilar joins the Misfits to discuss the film adaptation of the second book in TheHunger Games series.
Out of the Furnace. It’s less about revenge and bare-knuckle fighting than it is about Christian Bale stoically emoting.
Rush. Ron Howard’s new film is a flag to flag winner. Great story, great characters, and great racing action from beginning to end.
