Not the worst Will Ferrell movie, but that's not saying much. Cheap jokes, predictable storyline and no real consequences, besides the waste of time it took to watch it.
This is a movie that aged well and made more sense as time went on. On the surface it's just an excuse to see the leading woman make out with people and look hot doing it. Beneath all of that are deeper concepts about societal expectations and growing up in the modern era.
Nostalgia pulled the rating all the way to 5 stars. If this were to have been released recently, I'm not so sure I would find it to be so entertaining. The sisters were by far the most hilarious part of the movie, and it left me wishing there was an entire move about them acclimating to the new world.
Despite the low reviews, this movie lends itself to a good evening. While some lines land flat, others have the perfect storm of good timing and palpable chemistry. The concept is silly at worst and hilarious at best. It's no oscar winner, but it is worth watching.
An emotional rollercoaster that will have you planning your life and hugging the ones around you. The descent of a woman who holds language above all is heartbreaking to watch, but feels entirely necessary.
A charming film with a refreshing amount of diversity. The comedy is the easy sort that doesn't require much thought, but doesn't leave you with any guilt for laughing at it. Great film to watch on a rainy Sunday, or when nursing a nagging hangover.
Stunning visuals with a storyline that is more valid now than ever. V For Vendetta has a lot to say, as long as you have the attention span to sit through it all.
A film that pays service to it's loyal fans that migrated from the webseries the movie is based on. A modest budget was squeezed and ringed out with a lot to show for it. Certainly with a bigger budget and more time to fine tune the script, this would have been a blow out. Nevertheless, it is still a good film with a great cast and a relatable story of guilt and redemption to tell.
If I could possibly rate lower, I would. The first and only time a movie made me sick to my stomach without even the plot to justify it. A sick mind and horrible decision making made this movie possible. Time I will never get back.
Hilary Swank brought the story to life like no one else could. It's heartbreaking and thought provoking true story is told by a talented cast in just the right light to remain both respectful, and wary of the flaws of the people the film was based on.
A grim look into a society without the ability the conceive children. With it's dark images that mirror modern society and ending that is far from anything resembling happy, this film isn't for the lighthearted movie buff. Instead it is an honest look at a crumbling society that doesn't ask for anyone's approval, nor does it need it.
Validation for every girl who looked at Batman, Superman and every other hero while wondering where their place was in the world of superheros. A full plot and splendid cast make for a 5 start movie for the ages.
The nostalgia of the Harry Potter age fails to bleed through the limping plot. It brings almost none of we loved from the HP franchise while introducing elements of its own that fall as flat as the lead Eddie Redmayne. For a movie about beasts, there seems to be little time devoted to them. The rest of the run time seems to be dedicated to nothing at all. Minus a few cute creatures and likeable background characters, there's not much to see here.
The beginning of a mystical, magical moment in history. This is the movie that had us all looking for our owls from Hogwarts, and disappointed when they never came. The inexperienced cast had so much content to work with, hardly anyone noticed their hesitation on delivering lines. Complex themes pushed the boundaries on the capabilities of a young cast. That being said, loyalty for this fan favorite runs deep and will likely never be overshadowed.
This film had two directions it could have taken. The first direction being the true tale of gore and horrific trail of death Bundy blazed across the country. There is a reason Bundy was the first person to be labeled a serial killer. This direction would have satiated the morbidly curious and brought to light the crimes of Bundy to a new generation.
The direction it took instead was far more tame, but certainly an interesting take. The common criticism is Bundy being portrayed as charming and attractive, but that was a truth worth telling. He was able to lure close to 100 victims because he glorified himself and was undeniably charming.
This film takes the POV of his long time girlfriend and the film is all the better for it. Most of us know what he did. We know our own reactions to his crimes. What we don't know, or fail to take into account, is the direct effect on those people in Ted's life. It is a fresh look into an unexplored region of the picked apart tale of Ted Bundy.
While a period piece and all the drama that comes with it is a gay/lesbian dream we all share, its execution was slow and disjointed It managed to touch on running themes that existed then and today in a beautiful way, but relied on close up shots and a few facial movements to convey themes that require far more effort. The story was great, and actresses stunning, but the plot and script were polished into oblivion all to benefit the big screen.
One of my favorite movies in the gay/lesbian category. It is treated as any other cliche rom-com, and no one asks it to be more. The sudden realization, at the most inconvenient time, that attraction may not be what you thought, is all too relatable. The characters and plot get to take the easy way out of conflict, but again that fits the bill just right. No one was asking for an oscar winner, just the same type of run of the mill film the straight people are entitled to. Couldn't ask for much more.
This film is a glimpse into the world where wishes come true, even if that is the last thing you really need/want. It answers the eternal and timeless question of, what if you could erase your memory? Can you really start over? More importantly, do you want to? It is an incredibly unique take on that very premise. Nothing compares, so giving it a rating is rather difficult. For lack of another scale, giving 4 1/2 stars.
While this film had the potential to reach across oceans in it's relatable themes, it falls just shy of classic status. It doesn't fail to shy away from the provocative even to a fault. The sexualization/villainization of the main characters leaves viewers neither enlightened nor satisfied. Its scenery and openness of otherwise taboo subjects is it's saving grace. 3 stars for the lesbian drama of the decade.
