A Three Sentence Movie Review

1. Tiger Eyes

There's something very moving about this movie. I loved the natural love story in it--one that seemed genuine and unforced (although some characters were a tad predictable). Ultimately a tale about losing one thing, gaining another, and learning to transcend.

2. Wicker Park

Josh Hotnett (erhm, Hartnett) plays a brokenhearted man who has been searching for his lost love and thinks he's finally found her. It's a puzzle of a movie, and while some of it is silly and overdramatic, WP is your typically fun early 2000 film. And if nothing else, watch it for eye candy (seriously Josh looks as hot as ever).

3. Begin Again

Cute, but not as touching or deep as I expected it to be. The kitschy nature of this film is laughable at times, and the story is completely pedictable: love-scorned, folksy singer/songwriter (Knightley) finds redemption in washed up record exec and makes a life-changing album, gaining independence once again in her life, yada yada yada. However, the almost all-star cast doesn't disappoint too much--despite the somewhat lacking script, there's heart here.

4. Coherence

A must watch, I tell you! Creepy, mind blowing film mostly set at a house dinner party at night when a comet passes over the earth. Weird things happen--like cell phones cracking and power going out, except for one house on the block--and indeed, you will be weirded out (I loved it!!!).

  1. Okay, I have my Tiger Eyes on my list, but I've been putting that one off. Something about the cover makes me think, "Blah", you know? I wanted to see Begin Again, although it didn't get great reviews. I just love Keira Knightley.

    1. Don't expect amazing things from Tiger Eyes; however, it was better than I expected (maybe because of that cover!)

  2. The thing about Keira Knightley is if it isn't a period role, which she usually does very well, or I guess a pirate movie, she seems out of place. Maybe she needs a costume to act? Except, I'll give her Love Actually. She was quite good in that. (I still maintain that to be a Christmas movie, making it acceptable for me to like. Plus, Alan Rickman.)

    1. I'll agree with the Keira Knightly comment, she was sorta out of place here! It's worth one watch I suppose, but when faced with a decision to watch it again, I'll choose HF instead!
