A bad movie

Posted : 1 year, 5 months ago on 27 February 2018 09:11

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. On top of that, last year, I saw the TV-show ‘Riverdale’ on Netflix so I thought it should be pretty cool to see another movie taking place in the same universe. Unfortunately, it turned out to be rather lame after all. Indeed, right from the first scene involving some boyband called ‘Du Jour’, I had already lost pretty much any interest I might have had in the damned thing. Basically, I guess they tried to make a satire but it was not sharp enough but, above all, it was never funny or entertaining whatsoever. It was like how there was this omnipresent product placement. Obviously, it had to do with the plot but it felt really misguided since it was dealing with some actual brands. Concerning the actresses involved, I finally understood why Rachael Leigh Cook’s career never really took off as this movie pretty much ruined what any chances she might ever had. Concerning Tara Reid, even though she played a really clueless and annoying girl, I have to admit that I was actually amazed by how cute she used to be back in those days. Eventually, it seems that Rosario Dawson was the only one who managed to still have a decent career afterwards. Anyway, to conclude, the damned thing was rather cringe-inducing to behold and you should pretty much avoid it.

Josie and the Pussycats (2001) review

Posted : 7 years, 11 months ago on 3 September 2011 05:02

This movie is complete fluff, and while I love Seth Green, Breckin Meyer, and Donald Faison as members of "Du Jour", Tara Reid's portrayal of Melody is just too idiotic to stomach, Rachael Leigh Cook is not what I would have pictured in terms of Josie, after spending years reading the comic, and Paulo Costanzo isn't what I would have imagined for Alexander Cabot. They wrote him all wrong, casted the movie all wrong. Alan M. is supposed to be hot, the hottest guy in Riverdale, and yet, the guy they chose falls FAR short of that mark!

It's a shame too, because Deborah Kaplan is behind one of my favourite teen flicks ("Can't Hardly Wait"), but she sure didn't even come close to doing this story justice. It would have been better left in comic/cartoon form than having this tragedy made. The music, however, is more tolerable, most of the time, than every other element of this movie.
