A Three-Sentence Movie Review

Unbroken

Good, but it needed a little more lightheartedness in a script very heavy with sadness and intensity. Still, Unbroken is a testament to human determination and spirit. Worth seeing, but make sure you're not in a sad mood going into it.








Happy

On Netflix Instant
Solid documentary showcasing positive psychology. A good reminder of how to live life for anyone needing a pick-me-up on a bad day. Watch it.


















Remembrance

On Netflix Instant
I haven't seen a film this beautiful in a very long time. About long lost love due to the war, you'll almost fall apart watching this one unfold. I know the film was justified ending the way it did, but I WANT MOOOOOORE (signs of a great script).

















Into the Woods

The first two-thrids of the movie flows very well; however, the plot gets choppy at the end, despite me liking the overall message. Top-notch singing in this movie-musical. The "Agony" scene makes up for any shortfalls--simply brilliant.

  1. We were going to go see In The Woods this past weekend, but unable to convince the boy last minute we changed to Big Hero 6, which if you haven't see, is brilliant in every way as animated features go. It also has a pretty kick ass short.

  5. Had the pleasure of seeing Into the Woods at the Alamo Drafthouse. I completely agree with your assessment of the film. Ohh...but I also enjoyed Johnny Depp's bit as the wolf too.

  6. Of course, Lainey was making fun of that part, as you can imagine.
