I went into watching this movie with low expectations. I'd read a little about it, and people had generally said that it didn't live up to its potential. Saddened me, but I had to see it at least once.

I'm glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Christina and James did an excellent job in this story, and the only bit I felt was lacking was more of James after Penelope escape... read more

An average movie

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though I didn’t have such huge expections before watching the damned thing, I was still rather disappointed by this movie. Basically, they tried to deliver a quirky modern romantic-comedy with a fairy tale vibe but even though it was r... read more

Enjoyable Fairytale

This fairytale for our times has a great cast, and without it might be exceedingly trite. But our leads are able to take the simple script and do a little something extra with it. Penelope has been cursed by a witch from long ago, and was born with a pig's nose. If she is ever truly loved for herself by her own kind, this slight oddity will disappear. However, this curse so traumatizes her par... read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: January (30 movies items)

"First viewing - Jan. 19th I wanted to check this one out due mainly to the cast, and the cast certainly made it worthwhile. The story was mostly predictable, but most of the time I was engaged with the characters enough that I didn't mind it too much. So overall I thought it was worthwhile, and if someone really wanted to watch it I'd sit through it again but otherwise probably won't need to see it a second time. Just a thought: One of these days Peter Dinklage needs to win an Oscar for his a"
