A Three Sentence Movie Review

1. The Best of Me


This was so bad it's actually humorous; but really, 'best' should be nowhere near the title. It was like they thought, "Let's put about 6 tragic events in one film, add in a choppy love story, mix in a few outrageous/alcoholic/drug-dealing characters, and WE'VE GOT OURSELVES A WINNER!" Not even James Marsden's beautiful face could save this one.


2. Advanced Style

On Netflix Instant
Inspiring and adorable. Documentary on women who have great style in their "advanced" age--the 70 and above crowd. Of course, the film veers into their life stories, their hopes, and the idea that no matter your age, there's still a lot of living to do.


3. The One I Love

On Netflix Instant
WHOA. You'll go into this film thinking it's just about a troubled couple wanting to fix their marriage, and you'll leave the film thinking "WHATTTTT JUST HAPPENEDDDDDD?!?" Without giving too much away (I can't ruin this for you), this is suchhhh a must watch!


4. Song One


Although I usually love the depth Anne Hathaway gives to her characters, I found this film to be lacking. There was no real passion between the two love interests, and no real passion in the film, period. Unless you're looking for a good nap, skip this 'song.'

Forgive the radio silence the next few days on the blog. I'll be traveling and experiencing some jet lag this week. The next post you'll see here will be written from London!

  2. So glad you saw (and loved) The One I Love. I was interested in Song One, but perhaps I shall wait til it is released on DVD?

  3. I watched it on ON DEMAND and that was even wasting money. So yes. Wait until it released for as little money as possible. But it's baaaaaaad.

  4. Oh, I love these mini reviews! I've seen the trailer for The One I Love a few times, but was pretty confused as to what it was actually about so didn't see it. Sounds like one I'll definitely be renting soon though! xxx

  5. ok how can I NOT check out The One I Love after that review? I laughed at your review of The Best Of Me, I haven't seen it but I gave up on the book after a chapter or two.

  7. The Best of Me is romantic yet tragic but isn't quite memorable enough compared to Sparks previous works.
