The Sessions

The Sessions

Tuesday, March 5, 2013 No Comments

The Sessions contained many interesting elements. With a character that spends most of his life confined in an iron lung and can only travel by means of a gurney, my curiosity levels were piqued. Add into it his desire to want to experience sex, and my intrigue deepened further. It’s a remarkable true story, but […]

Hope Springs

Hope Springs

Tuesday, August 14, 2012 No Comments

Sluggishly paced and cringingly awkward were the most prevalent thoughts I had throughout Hope Springs. Watching a middle-aged couple as they attempt to reignite their failing marriage could’ve been very intriguing and insightful, had it not been so slow and so painful to watch. Sure there were moments of cuteness, and Meryl Streep and Tommy […]

Bridesmaids

Friday, September 30, 2011 No Comments

Oddly, Bridesmaids reminded me of Transformers. How? It feels like half the film was written by one of the writers, while the other half was written by the other. And considering the fact that the first hour was filled with overplayed awkward “comedy” that seemed to be nothing but a long-form version of many of […]

New York, New York

New York, New York (Blu-ray)

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 No Comments

New York, New York was just a mess of a movie. There were hints of goodness here and there, but overall, it just felt as though they had some ideas but just couldn’t actualize them so they just jumbled one thing after another, hoping no one would notice that they really didn’t do a good […]

Jack Goes Boating

Jack Goes Boating

So there’s Man A, Man B, Girl A and Girl B, and they all partake in really slow and very awkward conversations. Man A and Girl A attempt to maybe somewhat date, and Man B does pretty much nothing. Oh, and at one point Girl A gets attacked and Man A buys her a stuffed […]

Please Give

Please Give

Please Give opens with a montage of boobs of all different shapes and sizes being x-rayed. However, aside from the fact that Rebecca Hall worked at a mammogram clinic, breast cancer was only mentioned in passing once. So why the heck did it start off like that? Not that the movie as a whole was […]

Cyrus

Cyrus

The progression of Cyrus was highly unbelievable. For example, John C. Reily, who plays an odd, gauche fellow who’s in an emotional slump, meets Marisa Tomei at a party and they sleep together. That’s fine and all, but the next day he calls her, and right then and there she should’ve called it off because […]

The Lovely Bones

The Lovely Bones

Tuesday, May 11, 2010 No Comments

The Lovely Bones, a movie about a girl who gets murdered and becomes stuck in an Alice In Wonderland like state between life and death, was pretty bad. It couldn’t make up its mind on which character to focus on, which made it difficult to connect with anyone in the movie. It was also extremely […]
