Stopped watching after 50 minutes! (no spoilers)

I honestly only watched this movie because it was on my Oscar 2017 highlights and it was the only movie I haven't watched from this list. Fences tells the story of the Maxson family and that's pretty much it.

This movie is one of the most boring movie experiences I've ever watched and by far I guess the worst movie of 2016. The only three redeemable things about this movie are Viola Davis' and Denzel Washington's performances and some life lessons that Troy tells his children. The story of this movie is just about their life and that's it. I understand that it tried to be realistic but unlike Moonlight where that story was told in an interesting way that catched my attention and made me interested in what happened next, in this movie there is nothing interesting happening or something that might catch my attention and make me wanna watch the rest of the movie. It also tried to have bad-ass dialogue and be a dialogue-driven movie like Pulp Fiction but that movie was memorable for it's interesting storyline that had multiple stories intertwine by the end and more importantly for it's dialogue which was catchy either with it's constant language abuse or weird circumstances. Here there is nothing catchy or interesting or entertaining at all. The rest of things are just average like the score which had only 2 cues in the whole 50 minutes i watched or the cinematography which was average as was probably necessary in the movie.

Boring movie with only 2 good performances and some life lessons, weak score, weak and uninteresting story that made me sleep after 26 minutes but on a rewatch the next day nothing improved and I decided to stop wasting my time with this movie at the 50 minutes mark. 4/10

Theatre film

Very strong and in depth story but the flavor of theatre remained strong as well. So much that I guessed it was a play at first. In a play, talk is king, and it is what we get. Good film anyway, but I admit I did snooze a few minutes and I did not care to rewind to see, or rather hear, what I missed.

Life is more than balls and strikes.

This is one of those don't miss flicks you hear about. Working as a trash collector in Pittsburgh in the late 1950's, Troy Maxson (Denzel Washington) is profoundly bitter about his station in life. He possessed the talent and aptitude to be a professional baseball player, but his dreams were shattered knowing no contract would be coming due to his age and the fact that major league baseball started admitting black athletes too late for him to take his swings for the fences.

A mundane job with little chance for advancement and earning just enough to sustain a modest home for his long-suffering wife, Rose (Viola Davis); Troy is a conflicted man. And there is the shambled relationship with his estranged 17-year old son, Cory (Jovan Adepo). Troy is head strong in blocking Cory's opportunity to play college football. Not that misery loves company, but anger is easy to bestow on the one that follows. Fair of not, Maxson is hard headed in his belief that fences fence some folks in and other folks out. Prejudice and regret remains in the forefront.

Washington and Davis are at the top of their game. Both characters are heartfelt and composed of reality. Rounding out the cast: Stephen Henderson, Saniyya Sidney, Mykelti Williamson and Russell Hornsby.
