Movies I’ve watched, week five

7. Fast Food Nation
A very odd book to film translation, considering that the book is non-fiction and the film is fiction. Several distinct storylines vaguely intersect, and the odd cast, including Wilmer Valderrama, Bruce Willis, Greg Kinnear, Kris Kristofferson, Ethan Hawke and Avril Lavigne (yes, that Avril Lavigne) doesn’t really click. The movie’s more preachy than actually telling a good story, even though it has some important things to tell you it’s just not very good at doing so. C-
