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....
Pretty lame. Good cast is pretty much wasted. Katherine Heigl is quite brittle and you can guess her little secret early on. Amanda Seyfried is underused. Diane Keaton is virtually the same mother character she always plays. I hated Robert DeNiro's character - was a sleazy old creep. Susan Sarandan, not at her most likeable either. I also didn't like the stone-faced biological mother - very cliched until the very end. Plot is wafer thin. Can't even be bothered repeating it, and it seemed most of the "adult" cast were, or had been, involved in some shocking sexual thing. The younger cast are pretty tame by comparison. The bit with the "moms" at the end was a step too far for disbelief. The whole thing had me rolling my eyes, and Robin Williams as some marriage advising vicar thing again - didn't he already play that role in that godawful Mandy Moore movie from a few years back? It's not much better here. There are a few tame laughs, and it is good to see Topher Grace onscreen, but most of these actors have made far better movies in this genre. 27 dresses, Because I said so, Win a date with Tad Hamilton, Mean girls. Rent one of those instead!
Actually downgraded this - was worse than I remembered. The three leads are great and I liked the idea of the downtrodden office workers, but it goes too heavily into the revenge and becomes boring. I also hated the three revenge fantasies. Too long and pointless.
