I enjoy The Wedding Singer myself, but that was when Adam Sandler was actually funny. Blended is not as bad as Jack & Jill, or Grown Ups 1 or 2 and Just Go With It, but Blended is still a pretty terrible movie.
I am interested in sharing movie reviews with people with similar, or even not similar taste in movies. I watch at least a few movies every week and try to leave at least a short comment on all. (I would love to watch more, but that thing called work will keep getting in the way. LOL). I visit Flixster daily and possibly need a life! I am not stuck up about my movies, and I like most genres. While I do have a preference towards lower budget films, I can also enjoy a good chick flick.
Most of the movies I see are pretty average and I rate them around 3 stars. Anything lower than a 3 and you know I thought it was pretty bad, (if it got half a star, no comment!). Anything 3 and a half to 4 is pretty good. 5 stars, amazing.
I do not send out a lot of recommendations,(though sending more out these days than I have previously). I tend to figure most people here have seen older films or big budget ones. I will send out recommendations for smaller films that I think may have flown under people's radar. But I enjoy reading the recommendations of others, so keep them coming!
I do not add people with no reviews and I'm really not interested in those who want to just send the same old pick up lines out to ten other people. This is not a dating site, people! If you want to be real and chat about movies, then feel free to add me. Also, I have unadded people for sending me too many widgets - particularly of the soft porn variety. If I wanted to look at that, and be associated with it, I would be on a very different website!
I am pretty friendly and open minded, but as previously stated, I am here for the movies, so don't bother contacting me if you have other reasons for joining this site. Hate to sound horrible, but there have been a few lately....
Starts off okay, had high hopes, but average in the end. Not awful, but not memorable either. Kind of a gay American Pie feel to it, but the sequels, not the original cast ones. Okay for the free rental it was, but not a movie I would buy or rewatch. If you like teen movies, and it's free on TV, you might not find it a total waste of an hour and a half.
Okay, I'll admit it, I was one of many sniffling in the cinema. Moving look at first love and loss. Though it's aimed at a teen audience, I suspect many older women would enjoy this too. Chloe Grace Moretz is excellent in this role as an 18 year old aspiring cello player who falls in love with a rock musician. Her ex rocker parents are also good characters and well cast. Then comes the car crash which takes everything away and perhaps even her life. Really wasn't sure I would like this, but I did. Nicely done.
So many thoughts - definitely not what I expected. Hated the father and son in this - just couldn't wait to see the wild woman get them. Very disturbing story about an outwardly perfect family and what daddy really does for kicks. Don't want to say more an ruin it for anyone.
Original rating of 3 stars holds after rewatch. Hadn't seen this one since the 90's. It's a patchy 80's film with some fun fashions and situations, but it's not amazing. Melanie looks much better with the black wig on, too, I have to say. The short blonde hair is horrific!
Got to admit, did not know what this was about when I rented it. Kind of thought it was a romance story. Oops. Needless to say, wasn't too enthralled when the romance between Colin firth and Nicole Kidman suddenly turned into war flashbacks set 40 years prior. Honesty, I was bored crapless for the majority and on the iPad not really paying attention. Bits of it got through. The water torture in particular was harrowing and the reconciliation at the end was surprisingly moving. I would say this is actually a worthy and well made movie, just not one I would have chosen had I actually read the blurb properly! Nicole Kidman's role is relatively small. She's really not a main character.
