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....
I know this movie by the title "slap her, she's french". Absolutely loved it first time I saw it. A rewatch a decade later has not been quite so kind - it's definitely somewhat silly in its plot (funny i never noticed that the motivations actually made no sense). But it's still a fun, trashy watch, and even better now it has the nostalgia thing happening. I pretty much wanted every outfit Piper wears. I don't really know what that says about me. It's not like they were meant to be fashionable outfits. She's quite a geek initially. Piper Perabo really was a good actress. It's a shame she's not in much the days. Coyote Ugly is still an all time favourite of mine.
I don't know why I keep watching this revolting tv show and now the movie. I actually grew up in a suburb not unlike Sunnyvale, so theses caricatures are not unbelievable to me. Though it's exaggerated, there really are people like this out there and I think that's why I find myself watching it. It's like a love hate thing. I loathe it, but I relate to it. Need I add, I couldn't get out of "my" Sunnyvale quick enough. I am not, and never was a bogan. In that way, it is unfair to lump all state housing people into this category and I wonder about the ethics of making this show. This is realistic, ugly, scummy people. Not characters you would care about at all. Just bottom of the barrel, vile human beings. It's not funny so much as one big cringe. I rated it fairly highly as it is successful for what it is trying to portray. Except for Frankie. No way he would get all those girls to do all those things. I think ... I couldn't say if it is funny. Not to me, it's not. It does drag out too long at the end and goes beyond ridiculous, though.
Very slight, but lovely film. I really liked it a lot. The story is a young woman, played by Krysten Ritter (I really am starting to like her a lot as an actress), has returned from college to her small town home to care for her younger brother and sister after the death of her parents. She meets a guy who is passing through, and the damaged pair form a relationship. It's not a fairytale, and nothing amazing happens, but it is a sweet movie. Very brief at 80 minutes. I was sorry to see it end. I really felt for all these characters and believed them.
