    The Eyes of Tammy Faye

    ★★½

    So ... this reminded me of WALK HARD, which I guess isn't surprising since WALK HARD has basically destroyed the biopic as a genre, but still. Full review here.

    The A-Team

    ★★½

    I don't really care for or about the original TV show, but it really does feel like this movie has a very specific problem: if the show is about a team of soldiers on the run doing good deeds while staying one step ahead of the government that wrongly convicted them, you shouldn't spend two hours showing how they wound up on the run?
