That’s right folks. All the movies I’ve seen this summer up until now. That’s 36 sentences all in one post.
Viewed in Okland, Romania with 13 youth, projected on a wall with very quiet sound. It was hard to hear, but still good. This makes viewing number three.
Be Kind Rewind
I expected a very different movie than what I saw. It was much sweeter than I thought it would be and pretty funny. Overall, a tiny bit formulaic, which surprised me, given the director.
Devil Wears Prada
I love a good truly awful (personality-wise) female lead, especially when balanced by a good female lead with a moral quandary. Excellent acting by all involved with a taut storyline. But overall, I mostly loved looking at the clothing.
Two of the youth recommended this movie to me and I soon found out why: It’s a nerd fantasy movie. I’ve been waiting for them to make a movie of this “true story” since I heard about the book on NPR. The only thing that disappointed was a major change from the true story to the movie world–other than that, good acting, good story line, just a good movie in general.
Just My Luck
An absolutely asinine movie with a stupid plot, insipid acting and annoying scene after annoying scene. Why did I watch it? When you haven’t had more than 3 hours sleep in more than a day and you are trapped in a plane, many movies that you wouldn’t watch on terra firma will do.
The Dark Knight.
A huge disappointment as I really was looking forward to it. The acting, special effects, etc were all fabulous. I just hated, hated, HATED the plot.
After the disaster of Hulk there was really only one way to go. And I thought Edward Norton was an interesting Bruce Banner. It almost erased the stench of The Dark Knight.
I wanted to like this movie, but I didn’t. Four months later I can’t remember why, which is a review right there. I do think Judy Greer needs to be in every movie I see though; she is awesome!
Mom hadn’t seen it, so here it was for the fourth time. Not movies survive to the second viewing, much less the fourth. I hope Michael Cera doesn’t get overexposed.
Stranger Than Fiction
When I first saw this movie I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. A very clever story with good actors bringing their a-game. This is why I love the movies.
Not as funny as I wanted it to be, but I was happy to see the actor who played “Bust-Ass” in “All the Real Girls.” And I like James Franco and Seth Rogan. So very silly movie that I mostly enjoyed.
Still good. Still Robert Downey Jr. Still didn’t like Terrance Howard.
