I Can't Think Straight (2008)
Amazing. I loved it so much. The two main actresses were fantastic, very talented young women. The chemistry between the two of them was phenomenal. The suspense they created just held you right there, watching the film and unable to turn away. Moving from Jordan to England, the settings created a background to an incredibly unique film not only about coming out but also about religion, family and culture. It was pretty much just a wonderfully unique film, that gave an entirely new perspective on things and that should be applauded over and over again. The characters were hilarious- all of them. From the maid, to sisters to boyfriends and parents, all the characters complemented each other perfectly and the entire film had me laughing and crying the entire time. Absolutely fantastic!!
Imagine Me & You (2005)
I love this movie. I've seen it so many times and I always just want to watch it over and over. I love the characters, Piper Perado is awesome and so is the actress who plays Luce. I love the humour, it's hilarious. I normally hate romantic comedies because I find them to be cliché and boring, but I've watched this one over and over and never ever gotten sick of it. It's original and fun. It's not the same old story. It starts where most romantic comedies end and takes a whole new spin on things. It shows homosexuality in a whole new way and I commend this film for that. It takes the stereotypical view of lesbians and throws it all away, creating a film that is both realistic and that many women can relate to. It confronts an issue that is still a stigma in our society and performs it excellently. I love this film!!
The Devil's Arithmetic (1999)
I like it but...
This film has some credibility. I like the idea behind it but I have trouble with the slight cheesiness that comes across sometimes. Some of it is a bit cliché and I don't find Kirsten Dunst to be all that convincing, especially when she first arrives in Germany. I found the transition from present to past to be cheesy too. I love the idea but it just didn't do all that much for me. The history is awesome but I think things could've been better achieved if it was the grandmother's story, and not the girl time travelling because it brings down the realism and credibility of the storyline, and surely they are trying to get realism across?
I love this movie... and I hate it. I am sixteen years old, and this movie astounds me. It is so intense and so real. The acting is incredible and the story line is wonderful... I love the cinematography that is used. The symbolism and transitional settings work so well to keep the film running.
Firstly, I loved the casting. Nikki Reed did a fantastic job as Evie, and she deserves praise for her wonderful writing too. It's awesome that someone so young had such an achievement. I loved Evan Rachel too. I had only ever seen her before in 'Little Secrets' so to see her in such a harsh and intense role was really great. I think that she really brought through the emotions of Tracey.
The SH scene was so haunting. I can relate to this, and so understand what she must be going through. Self Harm is an issue that is not touched on enough in today's society, and with the creation of 'emos', it is now being mocked and ridiculed. It was great that the film addressed this issue and was not afraid of it... most people won't touch it. But this film displayed the truth and the intensity that is Self Harming.
I loved the use of colour in the movie. Such as that of the Black and White and Grey used through the final scenes until Tracey wakes up the next morning... and everything is in colour. The transition is magical and you can really see what has happened and changed. I love this ending.
The Little Mermaid (1989)
Here I am, 16 years old, a teenage girl and still watching this movie. I have loved it my entire life, it is inspiring.
It features Ariel, the youngest daughter of the Sea-King from Atlantica, who dreams of being human and living with the love of her life, the human Prince Eric who lives in the Kingdom above. There is only one problem- it is forbidden to go to the surface and Ariel's father thinks all humans and "barbarians" and just doesn't understand Ariel. This film features a wonderful array of music, and a beautiful plot line. It will make you laugh out loud with the humour created by Scuttle, the sea-gull, and Sebastian, the crab, in their attempts to help Ariel receive the kiss of true love in three days. I love this movie so much and The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea is an above-expectation sequel to it, with all the zest, fantasy, music and enchantment of the original.
High School Musical (2006)
As a 16 year old teenage girl, I didn't expect to like this movie at all, but I loved it! And so did all my friends! It was incredibly cheesy in places but that just added hysteria to it. The songs were awesome and stick in your head so you can't get them out. I thought Troy and Gabriella worked really great together and Sharpay was hysterical. I laughed almost every time I saw her. Her character was great. One thing I would of liked to see was for them to actually show the musical, not just finish it. They put a lot more emphasis on the second call-back than the show and we didn't even get to see the show. I suppose if they had of put it in, it would of made it kind of cliché, though. Overall, it was an excellent movie with great singing, choreography and acting by all.
And I love Gabriella's hair!!
This movie is amazing. I love History and I love love stories so this movie makes for my favorite movie of all time. The suspense in the film is amazing, the detail incredible and the story-line is outstanding. I connect so well with Rose, I can understand everything about her and why she does everything. I can imagine me being Rose. I don't connect so well with Jack as a character, though that is probably because 1) Rose is the one telling the story and 2) Jack is a male and I am female. Kate Winslet is an awesome actress in this movie. She shows Rose so well and I can see the hopeful but clouded and misled young girl who is trapped into being a graceful, perfect woman so well. The depth of love between Jack and Rose is inspiring. This film reminds me a bit of Romeo and Juliet, where the two meet and quickly fall in love. I also love the way that James Cameron weaved so many facts about the event into the film. It would of been easy to turn this into a big, over-dramatic story where Jack becomes a hero and saves everyone on board by swimming the ship on his shoulders, or the ship explodes into a thousand pieces because of a wiring problem and everyone has to live on the ice-bergs or well, you get my drift. The point is that it doesn't. It sticks to the facts so well and I can imagine this story happening on Titanic. I can see this being a real story. And don't even get me started on the special effects. The attention to detail everywhere is enchanting. The way that the ship crumbles next to the ice-berg and how the water bursts into the compartment suddenly leaves you gasping.
Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005)
A hilarious movie
As a teenage girl, and a fan of the first movie, I found the sequel to Cheaper by the Dozen to be above my expectations. Usually, movie sequels are a disappointment, I have found, as was with Shrek 2, for example, but I found that Cheaper by the Dozen 2 was hilarious and a really good movie outlining the importance of family and family values. Yes, it was slightly predictable, as these movies often are, but I found that was strongly over-ridden by the comedy and 'slap-stick' that happened throughout the film to make it so entertaining. All the family had matured since that first film and it was interesting to see what the children had grown up to be like, and how much they had changed since the first film. I recommend this movie to fans of the first film, or anyone who just wants to see a light-hearted, 'feel-good' and all-over great movie.
Ella Enchanted (2004)
cry cry cry
Anne Hathaway should NOT have played Ella. I'm sorry, but she just wasn't right for the part. What happened to finishing school? That was one of the best parts of the book. And the singing and the dancing?? It made the movie so cheesy and stupid. Where did they get that from? If you see this movie, and have read the book, it might be a good idea to go into the cinema thinking that there is no book for this movie, and you have not read anything, you don't know the storyline, and everything about this movie is going to be completely new to you, because the storyline has been completely changed. Why is Ella suddenly a crazy protesting teenager, and Hattie an obsessive Fan Club president who french kisses the floor? Why is Olive a dipsy silly nothing?!? In the book, Ella tries not to obey the orders she is given, and struggles, but in the movie, she does everything right away. And why, may I ask, was Lucinda suddenly a crazy drunken fairy, isn't she meant to be helpful in the end? Why is Mandy a stupid fairy who casts spells all the time? She is meant to never ever do magic! A talking snake, a mad uncle and a prince who is up himself. Why couldn't they just keep to the original story-line and save us all the agony? I like the book version much better. Its original and interesting compared to this cliché of a Cinderella story.
