Chasing Liberty (2004)
A cute and likeable movie; Mandy Moore is as charismatic as ever
Well, Mandy Moore has done it again. She has once again proven in the new flick "Chasing Liberty" that she is one of the best crossover artists in Hollywood right now. I won't go into much detail about the plot, you can just read the summary. The movie's star Mandy Moore has a very likeable charm and a natural presence on screen that sure beats many of her singer-turned-actress peers. Her new leading man, Matthew Goode, is in my opinion a major step up from Trent Ford in "How to Deal," even though his heavy British accent was at times hard to understand. I predict that his hunky presence and Brad Pitt-like charm will definitely score him many leading roles in the future.
This film is definitely not without its flaws. I thought the storyline with the sticker-obsessed McGruff was not necessary, and the lines are at times cheesy and recycled: "You lied to me?", "How's your heart? It's a little broken." However there are some cute ideas (the showing of the postcards everytime they hit a new city). I also love the double meaning of the film title, definitely better than its original title "First Daughter." Overall I very much had a good time watching this film. It's not great, but it's good enough for an enjoyable Friday night movie.
Lord of the Piercing (2002)
I did not watch the 2002 MTV Movie Awards, but when I downloaded this 3-minute spoof from Kazaa, I found myself strangely entertained at this little piece. Yes, I agree, at times it can seem a little tasteless and lame but the quality of the editing and the snippets cut from the original movie was so clever and smartly put together that I couldn't help but laugh. The performances by Jack Black and Sarah Michelle Gellar were also funny in contrast to the seriousness of the other actors. I recommend this to all LOTR fans, as well as anybody else. This is a must watch!! However, if you don't like offensive material, then think twice.
