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....
This movie still stands up to repeat viewings. Have watched it a few times over the years and always find it interesting and clever (even though the characters definitely aren't). Hillary Swank has the most sympathetic role. The rest aren't terribly likeable, which I guess is why you don't care too much when bad things happen to them. Good early role for Rachael Leigh Cook also, although she's also pretty horrible (the character, that is).
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.
Really disliked this. Could barely follow it and found it dull and ugly to look at. Characters and situations were stupid. I hated the lead character, not interesting at all to carry a movie. Just one surreal situation after another relying on smut or drug reference to be "clever". I have liked this directors other films quite a lot, so this is really disappointing.
Somehow, I missed watching this one, though I love 80's movies and have watched almost all the well known ones, and plenty not so well ones too. Probably on account of the cast. Never have been a fan of Demi Moore or Rob Lowe. Well, this movie didn't change that especially, but I did quite enjoy this. Demi is actually quite tolerable here, though the standout for me was bitchy Elizabeth Perkins. She had the best lines. I do have to say, though, there was some fugly clothes here. I actually genuinely like 80's fashions, but these were frumpy. What were they thinking. The story itself is actually quite relatable and sweet in its way. Anyone who's lived with a partner or been married would relate to some of the struggles faced by the couple. It's not all happy times and that's exactly how life really is. Glad I had the chance to see this one finally.
