Film Review : Marty (1955)

IMDB Score : 7.7
RT Score : 100%

1955’s Best Picture winner is probably the most uneventful snoozefest to ever win Best Picture. I’m not calling it a bad film. I’m calling it a painfully average film with one good performance in Earnest Borgnine that shouldn’t even have won him Best Actor considering James Dean was in the running. Delbert Mann directs this film which also won him an Oscar. The movie focuses on two lonely people who are apparently very ugly because the movie doesn’t stop reminding us of this fact. They say it like fifty times. They meet and the story ahem…”takes off”…from there. Okay, I’m being to mean. It really just was an average film. It’s like the 50s version of Kramer Vs. Kramer; an average romantic fest wins an award it shouldn’t. WHY DO I CARE SO MUCH. WATCH THIS IF YOU WANT TO MEH.

3/5
