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....
Best description for this would be a dysfunctional family in a twisted love story. Very hard story to describe, but basically two brothers are in love with their step sister (not related by blood, but still!). She has chosen one brother over the other, but she's a nasty piece of work and gets the other brother to kidnap her so she can extort money out of her boyfriend (for reasons never made clear, to me, just seemed a bored girl with a nasty streak). Unfortunately the other brother is in love with her too and her teasing and flirting goes too far and leads to another nasty situation. Amazingly the story has a happy endings of types with unconditional love and forgiveness. Too brief at 80 minutes to have any real impact and does not ring overly true, but I do try to watch all the japanese current day movies to help me learn the language, so I did enjoy this in a way. It's definitely not one to rewatch or recommend, but for a tv free watch, no complaints.
Switched off halfway through. Honestly, it was pretty lame. Typical mob comedy. Seen it all before. Dianna Agron steals the show in her scenes, but she's not the main character and the other bits drag.
Definitely weaker than I expected, but worth at least one watch. Was it just me, or should whoever did the wardrobe have been sacked? Cameron Diaz in particular looked awful in most of the outfits. It was like they were going for wealthy, middle aged frump, when she was meant to be a successful and attractive career woman. The young mistress also liked pretty dowdy and even dumpy in most of her outfits. Well, probably says a lot about the story if I noticed the clothes so much. The story is pretty basic - the wife and two mistresses (one of whom didn't realise the guy was married) find out about each other, and rather than get in a cat fight, they become friends and set out to punish the womaniser. It should have been funnier than it was, though it had a few moments. The scene in the office with the blood and the smashed window felt like too much and not believable. Glad I finally saw it, but was expecting it to be better.
Pleasantly surprised. I expected very little from this (actually I expected another crap movie, and following on from Vampire Academy, seemed to be my night for it). Genuinely creepy and suspenseful boarding school story with a cast that can actually act. The one flaw was the rushed ending, it felt too quick and easy, and at just 78 minutes, the movie was hardly out wearing it's welcome and could have stood a little more fleshing out. Enjoyed this, though.
