A Three-Sentence Movie Review

The short reviews continue, especially because I've been pretty sick the past week, so the movie watching intake has gone through the roof.

After Earth

Don't they know that the one reason people go to see a Will Smith film is to see Will's humorous, charismatic, charming personality? This role sucked out all of his good qualities and left us with a robotic character that lacked any real depth or humanness. Don't even waste your time on this movie!







High Fidelity

My favorite movie of all time, based on a book written by one the best authors of our generation. Heartbreaking truths are revealed in this story that will awaken you, then comfort you like a Cosby sweater. If you follow intently, this movie can change your life and might even prompt you to make Top 5 lists.







One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

I get why everyone says, "that's a good movie." It's a charming, heart-warming, melancholy affair. The acting is superb because some of the well-knowns in this film didn't know how great they were yet.












Muriel's Wedding

A diamond in the rough. A realistic coming of age story that's achingly sad at one point, but that's just Toni Colette showing her depth as a young actress. Oh, and you gotta love the Abba soundtrack.

  4. "Heartbreaking truths are revealed in this story that will awaken you, then comfort you like a Cosby sweater." <- there it is. Okay, now the challenge is up for me to start my Monday morning mix tape posts. "You gotta kick off with a killer, to grab attention ..." And I will agree with your assessment of Mr. Hornby. This is one of the few instances where I love the book and the movie equally.

    And One Flew Over ..., love that movie so much. Fun fact. The first time I saw it was when I rented it before a test on the book that I had forgotten to read. Obviously, I failed miserably, but I found a great movie in the process. I did eventually read the book.
