How Do You Know (2010)
Nice and unusual for big Hollywood movie
I can't believe the low rating of this movie. I guess it's because it does not give you usual polished Hollywood story of romance: boy meets girl, girl has a boyfriend/fiancé who at first seems perfect but then turns out to be douche bag and/or evil and there steps in this new perfect guy, they kiss and live happily ever after, the end.
Here, both guys trying to get the girl are screwed up in some way or another. Boyfriend (Owen Wilson) is not a bad guy. He is not too sensitive, he sleeps around, but the point is he doesn't try to hide it. He is honest about himself. And throughout the relationship he tries to better himself and the relationship with his girlfriend (Reese Witherspoon). On the other hand the "new guy" (Paul Rudd) is depressed, has no job or money and is facing prison time. And at the beginning the girl he's chasing considers him weird. His slime-ball/businessman father (Jack Nicholson) I think just adds likability to Rudds character.
Also, what I like is there is no perfect ending. There is sort of a feel-good ending but it's not perfect. Although, for that you'll have to see the movie.
Astro Boy (2009)
bad, just plain bad
This is my first written movie review ever.
I never heard about Astro Boy before today. I decided to go ahead and watch it based on IMDb grade. And only thing left after seeing it was a wish to warn others not to see it. Except if your a kid up to...let's be generous... 9 years old.
Characters are one dimensional and stereotypical, plot is just plain stupid and unimaginative and at (lots of) times doesn't make much sense. Only mildly interesting characters were the RRF robots. Didn't get the point when President is still speaking of reelection after being absorbed by a giant robot destroying city.
You were warned.
