The Internship (2013)
I watched this film on a rainy Sunday afternoon and I'm fairly glad I did. This is an easy watch; light hearted with some good jokes here and there but by no means the film you want to watch if you're looking for something more complex. The good points were a lot of the supporting cast like Josh Brener who played Lyle, Dylan O' Brien as Stuart and Tiya Sircar as Neha and the running jokes like 'on the line' however this did get a little predictable towards the end and seemed to fall into the trap that all Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn films seem to fall in; the oh so cheesy ending. Other things that I didn't like was the side story of Nick(Owen Wilson) and Dana which again was so predictable and I knew from the first moment that they were gonna get together (also Owen Wilson's cringey flirting) and Max Minghella as Graham who was really unconvincing and stereotypical in his portrayal of the character.
Friends with Benefits (2011)
Tedious and unfunny
This movie is just...ugh. I got halfway through it and realized that I literally did not care what happened at all. I wouldn't have cared if one of them was hit by a truck and died, that was the result of unconvincing characters who just sound like their spewing out bad jokes from their memorised script. This movie didn't even have the bright side of good actors, Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis may be easy on the eye but are mediocre actors at best, you only have to watch MK in Oz: The Great And Powerful to see what I mean. It's just so boring and predictable and as the movie goes on it gets more and more cheesy. The plot is so unbelievably cliché that you only have to read the description on the back to know what's going to happen.
Bad, really, really bad...so bad
Where do I start with this? Firstly I would like to talk about Jace. In the books I loved Jace. Jace was witty, funny and sarcastic, mysterious and had a tendency to bad moods. Yet the character in the movie is not Jace. I was one of the people who believed that Jamie Campbell Bower would be a good Jace but there was none of his usual dry humour (except once but JCB can't pull of the sarcasm so it ends up sounding like a serious statement), no mystery as he tells Clary EVERYTHING in basically like the first 15 minutes, there's none of that distance you feel and in the movie it's obvious to everyone that he likes her. -Lily Collins is just so annoying! -Alec and Isobel have about 20 lines between them throughout the entire movie. -They skip ahead to like the third book and mix the order of events around by introducing Clary's special rune ability, introducing vaguely Simon's vampirism and just basically give away a lot of important information which is supposed to create suspense for another couple of books. -Numerous things were changed such as Simon was never made into a mouse in the film, just kidnapped, in the film they bring Clary and Jace's family relation into it by saying that it was Hodge's idea to tell the lie, Jace saves Clary from the monster at the start, Clary is drawing some weird sign all the time, Hodge never gives an unconscious Jace to Valentine to take to that abandoned hospital thing and in the end Clary is the saviour by pushing Valentine into this weird jelly door thing. -Scenes such as the one in the greenhouse at midnight were made totally cringey and difficult to watch due to unconvincing CGI and terrible acting, about 80% of the film was just very cringey
In fact, the only good people in it were Jocelyn and Simon.
