Julie & Julia (2009)
Love Love Love this movie!
I was amazed at how much I loved this movie. My only regret was not seeing it in theaters. But then again, I'm glad that I was able to pause the movie and explain to my fiancé how my life mirrored Julia's. As a writer, this movie was inspirational on so many levels. The reality of maintaining a successful career while holding down a successful relationship can be difficult. This movie portrayed that perfectly. I would recommend this movie to anyone with a dream, more or less a dream in the communications profession. I grew a silent love for Julie as I learned about her plight. I am definitely purchasing this movie on DVD as a keepsake to let it serve as a reminder of how beautiful; yet difficult, following your dream can be.
Not my Favorite, but Good.
I'm giving this movie an 8 because I got chills at the end as the older and younger navy men worked together. My father was in the Navy and so was my fiancé. That may be why it hit home for me. Otherwise, the movie could have done without Rhianna. She didn't make the movie any better. In fact, I found her quite distracting because her lines and her acting was so amateur. Now the guy who lost both his legs was inspiring. I like how he found his gusto when given the challenge to do so. The only regret is I wish that they would've explained why the aliens were targeting metal machines. I left the theater still in wonder about such an obvious question.
Men in Black 3 (2012)
I loved the opening of this movie more than anything. Right away the action and adventure grabs your attention and you are mesmerized by the story that is unfolding. I was quite shocked by the end of the movie, so if nothing else, it helps you understand the reason behind Agent J's existence. I love Agent K and Agent J in this movie. The special effects make for a great movie also. I saw this movie in 3-D and the characters were crystal clear and popping out of the screen. There weren't many flying objects in 3-D so you don't have to dodge flying objects. I give this movie a 9 because of that. Otherwise, I would've given this movie a perfect 10.
Think Like a Man (2012)
Not bad; Not great. Kevin Hart made the movie.
It's not bad, but it's not great either. I personally did not support the book because it was nothing more than a marketing tool used to make Steve Harvey more money. I'm not mad at him, I'm just not in his target market.
If I didn't like movies so much, or reviewing them, I would've passed on this movie too. Surprisingly it was hilarious...thanks to the awesome little short man that goes by the name "Cedric" played by Kevin Hart. Otherwise it was an average movie about women being ruled by a book on relationships and men playing into predetermined roles.
More power to Steve Harvey for turning pages, and heads, but it's not one of my favorite movies to date. It would fit perfectly in a sleepover blockbuster night for single women.
You Again (2010)
Better the second time around
I originally saw this movie when it came out. I was by myself in the theater and loved it. Last night, I watched the movie with Daryl and it was better the second time around.
I have to say that the characters really make this movie. I do wish that the Rock made more appearances. It shocked me the first and second time that he only made a cameo appearance. Grandma Bunny (played by Betty White) was hilarious as usual and so were all the other characters (except Georgia King played by Kristin Chenoweth...she was absolutely annoying).
The only real complaint is that they picked better music and a more appropriate (up-to-date) performance made by J.J. Clark played by Odette Yustman.
Tried to get into it, but couldn't.
We saw the original title where the movie was based in the UK. Needless to say, the movie was absolutely horrible to us. There was no humor in the movie (at least none that we could relate to being under 30 and in the U.S.).
We couldn't watch more than 30 minutes of the movie the first night. On the second night, we decided to painfully watch the rest in an effort to give it a fair shot. That didn't pan out the way we wished. It was hopeless so we turned off the movie completely.
I didn't care for the weird way the movie decided to take place during WWII. I didn't find any humor in the supposed humorous parts such as the synchronized swimming of pigs. I didn't care for the uncle who wanted to rob his brother's family of any type of fortune for their farm. And I especially didn't find Nanny McPhee humorous in this movie.
I noticed that there's another version of this movie out there someplace. In the movie trailer there's a baby. Maybe we will give that a shot sometime soon. Prayerfully it's much better.
Much better than expected!!
I just saw this movie. I wish I would've seen it in the movie theaters but the advertising was poor. I really loved the plot and I am shocked that many people do not feel the same. When I saw the previews in 2011 I thought it was another stupid contamination movie with no real plot other than the world is ending, but it wasn't. I loved how the ending showed something that could really happen in society and the reasoning behind the outbreak. Maybe I can appreciate the movie because I was vegetarian for 6 years and just knowing that animals can create such devastation on humans just by consumption, it made it real for me. I would recommend this movie to anyone because it truly is a must see.
I wouldn't put this movie on my "to buy for DVD collection" list, but I will admit that it was quite entertaining to watch. We saw this movie directly after seeing The Cabin in the Woods, and it was a breath of fresh air compared to all of the gory killing in Cabin in the Woods. I enjoyed the humorous lines of the main character Snow played by Guy Pearce. In addition, I love the twist at the end. The only real downside to this movie is the neglect to add futuristic features to everything. It's a pet peeve of mine to watch a movie that is suppose to take place in a futuristic time frame, yet the equipment, lighting, and even the weapons are historic. Just my opinion.
The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
Not the average cabin movie
This movie had me guessing for a long time. At one point, I became bored as I tried to figure out if the plot were similar to that of the Hunger Games in the sense of people being placed in controlled atmospheres. In fact, I really enjoyed the whole idea of sacrificial "lambs" as a means of keeping the evil Gods at bay. Although I give this movie an 8 rating, it's merely on the fact that the director chose not to make this a typical cabin horror flick. I think much of the audience was surprised to know that there was a reason for the killings, a reason that kept us on the edge of our seats. And it kept me guessing. How did they contain all of the alien/ancient specimen but had no real means of fighting them off? That alone keeps this movie from getting a 9 rating. lol
The Lorax (2012)
Marketing was poor, movie was actually great.
Marketing for this movie may have hurt the box office. I took so long to see this movie because the previews/commercials didn't show the real morale behind the story. I was pleasantly surprised to see the movie promoted a green lifestyle with an emphasis on trees. In addition, there was more humor in the movie than was portrayed in the commercials. I wish the promoters would've included the cute singing fish, or the short and hilarious looking billionaire. This movie is probably a blockbuster, but it's worth seeing, and that's the great thing about it. I almost skipped seeing this movie based on the ads. Thank goodness, I often have extra time on my hands.
