Recent movies, micro-reviews
It's work to write real reviews, but sometimes I just want to mention a movie (or show) I thought was worth attention (or not). So I went over my rental list of movies I've watched this summer, picked out those that were interesting, or should have been, and added a comment.
Meet The Fockers
Outstanding comedy. Sequel to Meet The Family, watch that first.
Scent Of A Woman
Can't believe I never watched this before. Excellent movie.
The Deep End
Should be interesting, but wasn't really, to me. Love Tilda Swinton, but the movie was very slow, and you couldn't see where it was going, so little interest.
Gavin And Stacey - 2008 Christmas Special
Not bad, but not quite as good as the regular series one and two.
My Sassy Girl
Should be interesting, but wasn't really, to me. Good basic idea (psycho girlfriend), but somehow did not hold my interest.
Over Her Dead Body
Could have been a lot more funny and interesting, given the ideas and Eva Longoria.
Very funny, I liked it. Love Anna Faris, she is hot, she is funny.
Gavin and Stacey
Outstanding comedy series.
Oz - Series 1 - Disc 1
I only watched 10 minutes, it seemed to clichéd and predictable.
My Best Friend's Girl
Good film, but didn't hold my attention all the way the second time around.
Great flick, classic.
After this, Mel Brooks was advices to stick to comedies, he said. Which I don't get, because it is a comedy. And I really liked it.
I Love Your Work
Should be interesting, but wasn't really, to me. I really like Giovano Ribisi, and the film had some promising aspects, but... I don't know... too slow and unclear maybe.
Rules Of Attraction
Should be interesting, but wasn't really, to me. Had this irritating gimmick of scrolling back in time (on camera) all the time to follow a different character.
Best Bond movie I've seen. I've never cared much for them, but this one was raw.
