Crop And Save
There are going to be some men on this list I guarantee some people are gonna be seriously weirded out by, but I'm not asking anyone to agree with me. And you can go ahead and tell me I'm weird, crazy, sick, whatever you want. This list is my personal opinion and I welcome you all to leave yours as well, I'm always curious to know who other women think is sexy.
The Hurt Locker (2008)
Renner is the only thing that makes this watchable.
Having heard from several people that this movie was at best mediocre, and knowing (in my own little mind, not by anything confirmed by anyone involved with the Oscars) that the only reason it won Best Picture was simply because it was about our people in Iraq, I was curious, yet wary, to see this movie. Unfortunately, I was sadly disappointed...
The plot, character development, and conflict in this movie could have been shown in sixty minutes or less. Yet we are bogged down with an extra hour of nothing but slow motion shots of shells falling to the ground, silent shots of men walking and/or laying in the dessert, and of course the all important male-bonding scene in which our three main characters wrestle with each other while downing a bottle of liquor. Jeremy Renner - who always amazes me with his depth and understanding of ever character he portrays - is the only one who's character is developed beyond that of a stick figure. He portrays two completely different sides of the same man: the man who loves his job, and the man who loves his family.
The cinematography is breath-taking at times, but there is to much use of the shaky camera, resulting in a lot of confusion during any of the action scenes.
All in all, I recommend seeing it once and only once. If only to yet again be in awe of Renner and his wonderful acting abilities.
Open Water 2: Adrift (2006)
All suspense, no climax
This movie was a let down in every sense of the word, more so even than the first one. The acting was mediocre, the plot as holey as swiss cheese, and spent an hour and half building up suspense that never really resolves itself.
The acting was completely unbelievable with the exception of the few scenes before they get into the water and those in which someone melts into hysteria. Otherwise, the actors seemed bored and looked as if they just wanted to get out of the water because their beer was going flat.
The plot was fraught with holes, especially concerning Amy's father's death, something they showed in grainy, badly lit, blurry scenes that didn't really tell you anything. One of the reviews of this movie said "Right on the edge of your seat!" They failed to mention that when the credits start rolling you slump to the floor in utter defeat, having spent the last hour watching suspense pile up only to have it suddenly disappear as though it was all a dream. In reality, it seems as though the director built up to much suspense, didn't know what to do with it, and swept it under the rug.
The ending was confusing, unbelievable, simply wretched. If you want something that will make your brain work watch Attic Expeditions or Saw. At least you'll get the privilege of watching good acting and fulfilled suspense while having your brain boggled.
