A Three-Sentence Movie Review

(Thought I would sneak in a movie review post before I continue with MORE New Orleans stuff)

Happy Christmas

Some of you will hate this; I, on the other hand, found it refreshing. Don't go into this movie expecting to a) be wildly entertained or b) see a well-defined plot. Emulates real life with the same frustration you experience in your everyday, including the push and pull between being responsible and refusing to grow up.

The Hunger Games: Mokingjay Part 1

Oh yeah, the fire is catching! Out of all the franchise films, this still remains one of my favorites for its grittier/darker material and good acting, even though I tend to not like "Part 1" movies. J-Law really is the star here, and it's safe to say I'd follow her into the revolution.

Thanks for Sharing

Interesting movie on addiction, mainly focusing on sexual addiction. The plot was okay, but nothing life changing (and Pink really doesn't need to be acting--stick to singing, lady!). I'm pretty sure the point was to validate sexual addiction as an actual disease; for that goal, it succeeds.

Le Weekend

This is NOT a rom com; this is meant to portray a 30+ year marriage, complete with bipolar ups and downs. After being together so long, there is a battle between love and hate that is the poignant theme of the story. The question at the end is if love can indeed win; you'll want to watch to find out.

  1. I agree with you when it comes to the Hunger Games franchise. I love it!! (Even though it seemed rather Hollywood-like to split the third movie into two.). Money, money, money! Oh well, they already earned my ticket.

  2. I haven't seen any of these movies, the last one sounds appealing to me:)

  3. I watched Thanks for Sharing. It was okay. Mockingjay was, of course, amazing. It's my favorite book (and so far, movie) in the series!

  4. Interesting! Hadn't heard of a couple of these. I'm with you on the uncertainty of Part 1 movies but Mockingjay surely did well :)

  5. i enjoyed thanks for sharing even if it was a bit weird. and i totally agree with Pink. I still haven't seen the new Hunger Games, and I did try and watch the Happy Christmas but got so bored so quickly, I switched to Love Actually lol
