Warm Bodies (2013)
Not at all what I expected
When I saw the trailer for this movie, it honestly looked really dumb. Like, Twilight for Zombies. Also didn't help that Teresa Palmer really reminds me of Kirsten Stewart for some reason. However, within the first 5 minutes, you realize that the movie doesn't plan to go down that road. R's inner dialogue was hilarious and this was more of an off-beat comedy than a romance. That being said, the relationship between R and Julie was really cute and innocent. Sure, it started a little unconventionally, but it was strong enough to literally change the world. Nicholas Hoult is just too adorable as R. His mannerisms, facial expressions and inner monologue are great. Don't judge a movie by its trailer I guess. The story is simple and the miracle at the end is not really explained, but hey. Give this a try, it might surprise you.
The Rules of Attraction (2002)
Terrible. Just Terrible
I don't understand how anyone can like this movie. It was awful...really bad. I seriously thought I'd wasted almost 2 hours of my life. 20 minutes into the movie, I had a sinking feeling, but I grimly watched it until the end hoping it would get better. It doesn't. It's so pointless and trying way too hard to be unaffected. That being said, Ian was fantastic in his role, and a certain scene of his set to 'Faith' by George Michael did make me grin like an idiot. But it wasn't enough. Not nearly enough. Finding out who was leaving the mystery letters was interesting, but I just found this movie really stupid and pointless.
I thought I had this movie pegged
This movie kind of reminds me of The Art of Getting By, but the main character was not as likable or accessible. Most of the time, I though he was annoying and affected. Many of the scenes rang false and the accompanying dialogue seemed to be written by a first-year psychologist student. However, the saving grace is the second-half of the film. Once the life-coach aspect comes into play, the movie improves dramatically. The main character's scenes with Lucy Lu felt real and not like the psycho-analysis that permeated the first-half of the movie. I really enjoyed the scenes in Washington and they really captured the claustrophobic feeling of the main character. Finally seeing what happened made the main character more sympathetic and less insufferable. Decent film
