Game Change

I thought Game Change was just okay. It is interesting and engaging, but not really anything that leaves you thinking.

It follows the decision to choose Sarah Palin as the vice presidential candidate on McCain's ticket, and focuses on her during that campaign. It's crazy how little knowledge she had, and at times you even feel sorry for her.

The acting -- Ed Harris, Julianne Moore, and Woody Harrelson -- was impeccable. Ed Harris's McCain was a true statesman and gentleman, and Julianne Moore's Palin was spot on.

Game Change touched on how she vitalized the far right fringe of the Republican party, but didn't really go into that aspect, how she roused the wing-nuts...
