This Is 40 (2012)
So much potential but they just couldn't get there
When first seeing the trailers for this movie i was excited because i remember this couple's story in Knocked Up and it was hilarious but i think that's as far as it should've gone and i'll tell you why.
First the movie, for a comedy, is way too long. 2 hours and 15 min is a bit ridiculous. because of this the jokes were dragged out and it caused me to lose sense of the plot. There was so much potential with this story line and i felt it could've been so great and hilarious but they just didn't get there. I felt like there should've been a bit more drama to their marriage, it felt as if they were trying to make it seem so realistic that it came off fake. a lot of the problems they were experiencing does happen to real life middle aged couples but not to the extreme like they portrayed it. There were some familiar faces and others were just random (megan fox) lol but i also think a little bit more development for the new characters and maybe the old would've been nice as well. I wanted to like this movie so much because it had so many good parts where it could've been great. Maybe if they added a small portion towards the end of the movie interviewing real life 40 something year old couples and had little exerpts that would have also made the movie a bit closer to home.
All in all i do feel pocket hurt for spending 11.50 to see this movie because i was simply disappointed. Would i recommend This is 40? Probably not.
Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)
Not bad. not bad at all
I, like many others have a love hate relationship with adaptation films so when i heard they were doing snow white i got excited but then saw who was in it. It was very difficult while watching the movie to get past seeing The huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) as Thor and seeing snow white (Kristen Stewart) as Bella. despite that the movie in general was shot beautifully. the various angles in certain scenes really brought the story to life. Once again Kristen Stewart was a bit emotionless but she did much better in my opinion during this film then her previous. The star of the movie is clearly The queen (charlize Theron). she really is the villain we love to hate. Overall i would say it wasn't bad but wasn't spectacular.
