With this new treatment of 2013's Inside Llewyn Davis, The Coens finally have a film in the Criterion Collection, was it worth the wait?

Directors Joel and Ethan Coen and actor Oscar Isaac work together in the 1960s New York folk music scene set Inside Llewyn Davis to craft one of the most emotionally affecting works to date in a fictionalized tale of a talented obstinate that feels as powerful as the best non-fiction.
The tepid potboiler Runner Runner is so dull and hopelessly cliched the only reaction one can really give it is a raised eyebrow and a facial expression that says "Really? That's it?"
The Trouble With the Curve isn't the worst movie ever made, nor is it even close to the weakest movie of Clint Eastwood’s career. It might be dull and old fashioned, but I suppose it's perfectly watchable for passive viewers who like baseball or the aging movie star. It's just instantly forgettable and brings nothing new to the baseball movie genre that’s already overstuffed with these cliched entries.
