Only You (1994)
In my top 5 favourite rom-coms!
This is the story of a school teacher named Faith (Marisa Tomei) who believes in destiny and true love. When she was a young girl a Ouija board and a fortune teller separately came up with the name of Damon Bradley as her future soul-mate. 14 years later, days before her wedding, she's trying out her wedding gown when she picks up the phone and speaks with an unknown friend of her fiancé's - by the name of Damon Bradley. Faith, still in her wedding gown, trails the name all the way to the airport and ends up flying to Italy. And into Robert Downey, Jr's arms.
This movie is a Fairytale in itself. Ever since I was young, I've been fascinated with the beauty and message the movie gives! It's so underrated, and yes, it can be a bit sappy at times but the tone of the movie makes it clear to viewers once you start watching that it's just one of those stories.
I'm Italian myself so it truly was the icing on the cake that they set it mostly in Rome and Venice. The scenery was out of this world. I wish I could give it more than 10 stars.
The Romantics (2010)
Pointless & Bad
This so called movie doesn't even deserve one star--yes, it was that bad. I felt like it was just one of those cheap low budget films that you get on the Lifetime channel but Oh God, it was even worse than that!
Let me just start by saying that my Aunt got me this at the supermarket, so when i was bored last night, I popped it in the DVD player and....
It didn't even held my attention. IT WAS SO BAD. The characters were one dimensonial, tedious and obnoxious. The crew were even worse; I can even hold a camera better than that while taking a video. What was with the constant shaky movements? DISTRACTING. Although, it was far more interesting seeing a crew member trying to hold a camera than watching this bullshit. The plot had no story! It was just... worthless. It was meant to be about a group of college friends who all reunite to go to one of their friend's wedding and one of them had a relationship with the groom, who they're still in love with. IT SOUNDED GOOD. This, was a group of ass holes, screaming their heads off, mumbling about their early days and some other crap, holding resentment toward the bride until the final show down when they're at the altar and it starts raining badly and the groom starts laughing AND THEN the credits roll. You call that a movie? It was garbage. Ludicrous. Atrocious.
Flowers in the Attic (2014)
Torn between this and the original
I never thought I'd say this but Flowers In The Attic has me struggling between preferring the original '87 movie and this remake. Both were good in their own ways. This movie kept the incest which I was thrilled about but it really could've taken more time to develop WHY Chris and Cathy fell in love, it was all fast track and sudden -- it tried to gather every tiny detail that the fans hungered from the original but it didn't have any direction. I was sorely disappointed in that. The book took 300 pages until Chris and Cathy finally gave into each other, in that time, there was whippings, abuse, desire, abandonment, frustration etc. The movie took all that and skimmed it, it didn't have the same Gothic feel as the original. The original kept the Gothic, creepy confinement and if the incest had remained in the final cut, it really would've impressed me. The movie lacked in the icky thrilling and gripping suspense between the two older siblings and sugarcoated it.
It was okay. First, when I watched it, it was absolutely flawless, I was so excited about the movie finally getting the book right but when I watched it for a second time, I noticed the flaws I didn't see the first time around.
It's a good movie but more of a watered down, romantic feel to the book. I wasn't scared at all by the Grandmother and Heather Graham was too wooden for Corrine. Performances by Kiernan and Mason were excellent.
Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
Overrated and boring
Whilst the movie had it's strong points with a few funny moments, the movie itself sucked. I didn't feel or see the chemistry between Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks - there was no substance and it sort of flopped. I mean, really, feeling an attachment to a guy you've never even seen before over the radio because of his tragic marriage and life with his kid? Please. Maybe I'm being insensitive but the whole thing really wasn't worth it. It was drawn out and I became bored with the same repeated angst of Annie. The movie somehow reminded me of a book I recently read, only the book was better. Ugh seriously do not waste your time.
Oh Shut up! It wasn't bad.
I think I watched this movie when I was really young and I've always liked it. Mostly it was because of the relationship between Anakin and Padmé -- seeing it nowadays, I can say that some of the dialogue was far too much and very tacky but it makes sense. It works. Think about it, if you're sharing a forbidden love with someone, you're gonna try and show and tell them how much you love them when you get the chance instead of creating banter and arguments (Han and Leia).
The whole saga is perfect to me but people need to stop comparing Anakin and Padmé to Han and Leia. Different love story, different time.
Another thing, people need to stop complaining about the damn special effects. Hello, it was 2002, George wasn't gonna waste time on crafts and do it the old fashioned way for the sake of it. All the other sci fi movies at the time had CGI too. It's star wars, there's blasters, clone, droids, battleships, they're in space for Goodness sake. Why not take advantage of CGI?!
Now that that's out the way: This movie really isn't as bad as people think. I think it does amazingly to slowly tiptoe toward Anakin's fall during the 3rd film. They couldn't waste time between Anakin and Padmé, they had to have their love acknowledged and stated before making the next film. Some of the script could be better done but it wasn't SO BAD. People, you'd complain at anything George would do, just accept the saga for what it is and shut up like a real fan would.
The Big Wedding (2013)
Full of potential, just not reached.
These movies starring all the big names are my guilty pleasures. They're hilarious and seem right to have good strong actors to make the story amazing, but, The Big Wedding was a huge disappointment.
The movie lacked substance -- I could see what they were trying to do but it felt very flat and vulnerable in places. It didn't unfold nicely, it sort of all came gushing out instead of having surprising plot twists that I could see from a mile off.
It seemed a bit stupid too, we live in 2013, someone's view about divorce wouldn't matter nowadays, not so much that you have to fake a life. There's worse crap than that. I'd say it would be worth the watch, but there's just not much there. Give it a miss.
Still one of the best out of the Saga!
I have been avid toward the Star Wars series, being introduced to it by my older brother, I've always liked it and loved or hated each character. The thing is, the original are the best, the prequels tried but fail to have the same attachment.
But, Revenge Of The Sith is an exception. It's easily one of my favourites from it, I mean how could it not? The music, special effects, plot line, Anakin's fall, The birth of Darth Vader, Padme's death, birth of the twins IT ALL TIES IN TO CLOSE AND CONFIRM THE WHOLE SAGA. It's too good. One of the things I thought that was effective is that Padme birthed the twins at the same time that Anakin was being made into Darth Vader. So chilling and eerie. It literally does bring tears to your eyes at the end. The separation of the twins and knowing how their fate would turn out... ugh this movie is superb.
One Direction: This Is Us (2013)
I saw This Is Us the day it was released in the UK and it was fab. The cinema was full of girls and women from all ages, naturally. Don't listen and let the biased reviewers discourage you from seeing this movie. Yes, it was more of a documentary than a feature film and could've easily been on TV divided into parts but I guess that's how they make more money in the business world.
Thinking the boys were arrogant and big headed, I wasn't keen to see this film but my cousin wanted to badly see it with me so I went. It surprised me because the boys lives are actually very ordinary and since they're from suburban London, they are typical teenage boys with big hearts and dreams. They had good morals too, nothing like what's said in the papers. So, don't go in and have high hopes because it isn't an amazing documentary but fairly good, sad, and very funny. I enjoyed it.
The Thorn Birds (1983)
One of the best stories of all time
This is indeed as the title says, one of the best stories of all time. I'm a teenager so naturally I thought this would be something washed out and totally not for me considering my age, but what a surprise I got..
I was so attached to the characters. The story. The setting and the life lessons it taught me. For the eighties, it's pretty damn good - the acting above all else was realistic and convincing. Ward, Chamberline, Stanwyck and Simmons won the show over. They were my favourites. I couldn't recommend this epic story enough. It's not just a love story but a family saga that spans over 60 years.
Currently reading the book and connecting the differences between it and the mini series. I love them both, though.
Not awful but tolerable
I'm casting my vote in between 1 and 10 because either way, my opinion will be biased based on the number i give it. This was from my mother's time and I'm a huge fan of the eighties and everything about it, even these lame, mediocre, dramatic TV series that ran for a short time.
One that I absolutely adore, cherish and above all else dote on is The ThornBirds which my mother made me watch. It sucked me in, made me laugh, made me cry. It was perfect. So, I decided to sit down and watch Lace, another one of my mother's favourites, however, I found it incredibly bland and downright boring.
The characters were just so whiny, lifeless and had no substance to them. The story seemed a bit dramatic and I couldn't stand Lily, she was just awful.
It was enjoyable, I won't deny it but it didn't give me any emotion other than relief that it was over with. It's good for a rainy boring day but don't let the beginning discourage you from watching the rest, it gets into it when one of the girl's fall pregnant. The story start to suck you in but I have to say, I didn't care about the characters at all. It didn't matter what happened, I just didn't care.
Maybe it's dated and feels too predictable and typical to watch it in today's world but I don't get the hype - maybe my opinion would've been different if I had watched it back in the eighties.
