I like to consider myself a reviewer for the people. There are times when I will critically analyze a movie and the technical aspects of it. However, most often the bulk of my reviews are purely based on entertainment value i.e. the thing that interests most casual movie goers. I don't take my reviews too seriously. I watch a film to be entertained and to enjoy it. So what if it's not the most sophisticated or provocative film? In other words, I often will give a movie that has been bashed by the critics high scores, simply because I ENJOYED it. Because thats what watching movies is about right? Enjoying the experience.
Just to clearify for everyone. I write my reviews as soon as I watch the movie. So they are raw and sometimes a little extreme but I like it like that. :)
I love to learn about new movies, old movies, different actors, director etc. And I think for my age I am quite knowledgable when it comes to films. I really do love movies and tv they are my passion!
Im pretty much open to watching any movie at least once. And im quite stubborn in that if im hating a movie, I will suffer through the whole thing, just to be able to say ive watched it (and didnt like it).
I can't stand people who make their names Mrs.Bloom or Depp etc. go ahead and be a completly obsessed fan but your not married to them...do they get some sort of satisfaction in pretending that? Its just really lame.
I hate it when movies have random unnessicary sex scenes. But dont get me wrong I completly appreciate that sometimes a sex scene is nessisary, and those I can deal with. For me, if the movie is about sex or sexuality then sex scenes are expected and perfectly fine - enjoyable even. But if a movie is about murder or crime or something that can happen without sex and it has a sex scene thats when i get annoyed.
My movie tastes are somewhat varied. Sometimes I will love a movie that most people dont like. Or hate one that has won Oscars and is loved by many. It's only my opinion. Which is sometimes extreme. Sometimes I will give a movie a really bad rating, when it wasnt actually that bad, but there just happened to be a scene or certain aspect that pissed me off.
By the way, I dont come on here to chat to people about random things often. The only thing I will really talk about on here is movies. So besides that, dont waste your time, trying to get my msn etc.
Statham was good as always (albeit type-casted). Jennifer Lopez' character was infuriating (not sure who to blame for that. Probably the writers). All in all it was a decent action flick though. (Longer review to come later...maybe).
What did this movie teach me? Apparently you can get a knife THROUGH your hand and still have total mobility/no decrease in function in that hand.
Not too shabby. I did laugh some. I enjoyed the cast - particularly Colin Farrell and Sam Rockwell. It was quite smartly written. To quote Christopher Walken's character, "it had layers". I can't think of any big complaints off of the top of my head. It was good, though it won't be a new favourite of mine.
What did this movie teach me? It can be tiring being friends with psychopaths.
This wasn't nearly as funny as I'd thought it would be. Some of the better bits were in the trailer. It was predictable, a little stale, and just not that hilarious. Stephen Merchant's character got annoying really quickly. Minnie Driver was one of my favourites. It did have some entertaining/funny moments, just not that many. All in all, not bad, but not great either.
What did this movie teach me? Even though two people may seem to hate each other, they might actually be in love. (I don't really agree with this, but it's the message I got).
Maybe my rating is a little generous, but I don't care. I really loved this movie. Fantastic cast, characters, soundtrack, story, effects, everything. Perhaps I don't remember the other two Iron Man movies very well any more, but I'm inclined to say that this is my favourite of the three.
I could go in to more detail, but really, if you've seen the other two and liked them, you'll like this one too. I needn't say more.
What did this movie teach me? The second mouse gets the cheese.
