The Peanut Butter Solution

I guess it was fun when I watched it at 9... And even then, I found it pretty weird.

I Could Never Be Your Woman
6 years ago via Flixster

I really thought I would love this movie. I was convinced I would. But... I was a little disappointed in the characters, I suppose. I expected them not to fit in so much in the very faux world in which they live, but I'm afraid they did.

I guess the movie is not totally superficial, and it does try to convey some sort of message, but it's either way too obvious, or contradictory. For example, I was really annoyed by the conversation between Michelle Pfeiffer and Saoirse's teacher. I mean, how can you expect your daughter to be clever and critical towards society, if she doesn't even see that school is actually important in her development. And by the way, don't you see that getting the right answer in a math exam proves absolutely nothing without the right approach as you might have copied it on your neighbour? Gee, that's just common sense.

In the end, Saoirse was probably the best thing about this movie. Not necessarily her character, but the actress herself. (I love her accent in the interview ^^ She's so cute)

Russian Dolls (Les Poupées Russes)

All right, so I didn't see the wonderful movie that l'Auberge Espagnole is supposed to be, but I know I wasn't impressed by this one.

I mean it's the kind of movie you more or less enjoy the first time, but wouldn't watch again. The cast was doing a good job but the movie itself... Well, there were some nice character developments, some funny bits here and there, some interesting effects, such as Xavier's thoughts shown inside the "real-life" but the movie still came off as utterly forgettable.

Five stars for Jennifer Ehle and Jeremy Northam... none for Paltrow and Eckhart. Overall decent, I guess, but really, the Victorian storyline is the only thing worth renting this movie for.

Iris

Once again proves that good actors do not necessarily make good movies. The plot itself offers nothing interesting, and the only thing that is supposed to make up for this lack is a couple of sex scenes thrown in the mix in a desperate attempt to keep people watching. The story was going nowhere, the characters were going nowhere, and in the end, this just made this hour-and-a-half movie seem like the longest flick I've ever seen.
