Started the month out right with a good movie. :]
I'm on a Robert Downey Jr. spree right now, so that is why I chose to watch this movie, and I was not disapointed.
The whole concept of the movie was fantastic.
This is one of those "mess with your mind" movies that was kind of confusing, but I still liked it. And I enjoyed the fact that there were a few rancom big names in it that weren't exactly "big" at the time.
This was actually a pretty good party film. Typical? Yes, very much so. But it was entertaining and had several quoteable lines and laugh-out-loud moments.
I'm typcailly pretty skeptical of mockumentary type movies, so the fact that I liked this at all really speaks volume.
Really? ANOTHER friends with benefits movie? How many does that make for 2011? Geez.
this was the typical movie with an expected ending. The only difference between this and any other "just friends" movies is that there was a child involved.
This movie would have been much creepier if I lived in a city that actually had ATM machines inside little glass buildings.
Anyways, for a confined location movie it was nothing ground breaking. And they definitely stretched out a 10 minutes conflict into a 90 minute movie.
Also, the "solutions" that the characters came up with made me laugh.
However, the ending did surprise me, and I love unexpected endings, so I'll give it that. Also, the acting was okay, not awful like in many horror thrillers.
This movie had great potential. Maybe with a better cast and more realistic acting it would have been good.
I'm not saying that this film was "bad", I actually thought that plot was good, it had the right amount of action, and the resolution was good. It just need a little fine tuning, in my opinion.
Minus one star for the name
Minus another 1/2 star for starring Haylie Duff
Minus another 1/2 star for the film description
Now let's begin the evaluation!
Okay, it's been done before. Again, and again, and again. Teens in deserted area/island/forest. Teens drinking. Teens begin to die.
The way the film is laid out is horrific. I don't even want to go into detail.
I hate rating it so low because I'm in love with Lucy Hale, and she actually wasn't TOO bad in here. Probably the best acting job out of the lot. The lack of emotion was just made the whole thing pitiful. (The first thing that I would do if I found my best friend dead would SO be to casually suggest that we "put her in the freezer so she'll stay fresh...)
Well, it honestly wasn't terrible, but ater 30 minutes I had pretty much figured out the conclusion. However, it was successful in making me doubt my original plot theory (I turned out to be right, but props to them for making me doubt)
Late Sunday Night, June 10th
(anybody notice what I do on the weekends? haha)
This was probably the best "confined setting/mess with your mind" movie that I've seen for a while. I was completely absorbed from the begining, and didn't know the resolution until, well, the ending.
This was a very intelligent film with good acting. Definitely underrated.
Okay, I am aware that I am very much in the minority when it comes to 300...I can't stand it. I thought it was well put together, but just not a movie that I like. That being said, I actually enjoyed this spoof more than the origninal movie. I also enjoyed all of the other movie parodies thrown in (even though they did poke fun at some of my favorites like Shrek)
I know it's a guilty pleasure film, but I'm giving it a good rating.
So it wasnt flawless but it suffiently creeped me out, so I was satisfied
My biggest complaint about this movie is the title. "Eye" is singylar, and it really should be plural as the film is about both of her eyes. They should have named it "Eyes" or "The Eyes" or "Her Eyes"
Anyways, that's my rant.
This turned out to be much better than I expected. It kept me guessing until the end. I also enjoyed the riddles (I try to answer them, fail, and then when the characters figure them out I tell myself I knew it all along)
Since this was an older movie that I had not yet watched, I was a little skeptical. It wasn't bad, a more "modern" looking movie than most that are over a decade old. Did it scare me? Not a bit. Was it creppy? Decently.
Okay, I tried. I really did. But I just couldn't finish it.
It was basically the Japanese version of The Hunger Games (yes, I know, this came first).
But I simply didn't enjoy it. Bad acting is bad acting, no matter what country.
I suppose I would have enjoyed this film more if I had seen it when it was released. I've never been a huge Superman geek, and the only Superman TV show or movie that I ever follwed with Smallville. So, that being said. It wasn't bad. But it wasn't amazing.
I don't watch many dark comedy movies, but I think that I should. I knew that this was a spin-off of the TV Show "Dead Like Me", which I would have prefered to watch it first. However,the TV series is no longer on Netflix, and it just didn't seem worth downloading.
Aside from the main character (Ellen Muth) being simply awful, I enjoyed this movie. Not the best, but I liked it.
Now I am in search of more dark comedies (suggestions?)
Who the hell would get themselves into a situation like this? That is my one question.
The script writer for this movie obviously had some serious pent-up anger for his/her teachers. My gracious.
The whole plot was completely ridiculous and unrealstic. How could anybody
A. Be stupid enough to dig themselves into such a big hole
B. Come up with such ludacris "solutions"
C. Even BEGIN to think that any of their ideas would work
Was this movie supposed to be scary or funny? I'm really not sure.
I'll give it this- I really didn't know where it was headed.
I have a new favorite movie (or at least second, nothing can top Finding Nemo)
This documentary was brilliant. Simply genius. I loved it. Seldom does a movie of any sort (espcially "cut and paste" montages) take me through an entire range of emotion. During this film I experienced grief, joy, anger, frustration, pity, relief, and everything in between.
I'm in a state of awe right now. Maybe I'm giving it too much credit, so I will probaby watch it again tomorrow, but my God. I'm star struck.
A typical Adam Sandler movie...that being said, I usually can't stand him.
This one started out with promise and i found myself thinking, "hey! a decent Sandler movie?"
but towards the end it had reverted back to the typical pathetic attempt at a good romantic comedy.
Oh, and I feel so sorry for all of the beautiful women over the years that have had to kiss this man. Seriously.
Okay, this movie had terribly low ratings and reviews, but I actually found it to be rather humorus. It was definitely different, and that always means points in my book.
Yes, there were some parts that I could have done without, and I'm not the biggest fan of Jennifer Aniston, but it wasn't as bad as everybody made it out to be.
What a good surprise. I actually really enjoyed this movie. I didn't know the "secret" until it was revealed, so it was refreshing.
The one pet peeve about it was the annoying and corny background music.
