My Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Release Date: July, 2011

Plot Outline: An overweight teen lives his life

Terri... I don’t really know what to make of this movie. Terri was very bland. The entire movie felt monotone and uneventful. There weren’t any life lessons to be learned or anything of the sort and yet…I really enjoyed it. I just can’t tell you the exact reasons why.

Terri was charming in a way. The relationships throughout the film were sweet and warmed my heart. The characters were very likable and overall the film had a very realistic feel, which makes it easy to relate to.

The character Chad disturbed me. It was very obvious that he has many emotional and psychological issues. He made a few scenes tense and uncomfortable.

In my opinion, Terri wasn’t anything special but I enjoyed watching it. I just don’t think I will remember it for very long and I am uncertain of the purpose of the film.

The Beaver

Release Date: 2011

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

Bechdel Test: Fail

Plot Outline: A man struggling with depression finds his voice in a beaver puppet.

The Beaver started out strong. It has a strong cast full of talented, well respected actors. I was surprised that Jennifer Lawrence was in this. I didn’t realize that until I started watching the film. Though The Beaver was original, the idea of the puppet was unique and intriguing, I felt that the film did follow the usual script of a family falling apart and then trying to bring themselves back together. That doesn’t mean that the film isn’t good, it just means I have seen it before, without the puppet.

Watching The Beaver was surprisingly emotional. This is a story about a man’s mental illness. This man is falling apart, his family is falling apart. It feels sad and it feels real, even though the puppet is a thing. You can easily see this family’s pain and resentment and fear. Watching the family fall apart is much like watching a train wreck. You want to look away but you just can’t. It is captivating.

Like I said before, The Beaver started out strong…”started” being the key word. I felt that the end of the movie was weak and lazy.

I did enjoy watching this film, I wasn’t bored but after it finished I wasn’t left with much, just an hour or so of being entertained. It isn’t memorable but it was a feel good film for the moment.

If you liked The Beaver, watch: Stuck In Love (though I liked Stuck In Love a lot more)

Plot Outline: A man summons a demon in hopes of finding his girlfriend that was stolen by another demon and taken to hell.

Release Date: 2009

Lo was…something else. It was quite interesting to watch. I was pretty confused the entire time and just didn’t know how to feel or react. It wasn’t like a real movie. It was this weird spoof of demon movies. The acting was awful. It was very over dramatized with the facial expressions that it was laughable. There was random singing…and the story was silly. And yet…I was intrigued. I couldn’t stop watching it. I needed to see where this insanity went.

Besides the make up and costumes, I felt like this was a movie I could have made with my friends. There wasn’t anything really special and it barely seemed like a real movie.

I did however love the ending. Throughout the film I was very curious as to how Lo would end. It was so odd that I couldn’t imagine what they would do. I was pleasantly surprised with the ending. It was y favorite part of the entire movie.


The Last Exorcism

Posted in Ehhh with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2011 by Des

Release Date: August 27th 2010

Plot Outline: A doubtful priest decides to uncover the truth of demonic possession and films his exorcism for a documentary.

I love a good exorcism/demon movie so I was excited to see The Last Exorcism. It was a bit of a twist from the traditional exorcism idea which I was a big fan of. I liked the idea a lot, a priest not believing in demons and exorcisms and says he will perform them to expose frauds.

The start of the movie was just great. I loved the priest and his dialogue. He was very intelligent and sweet. He had a good heart, an overall likeable character.

As the story progressed us as the audience had so much doubt. We don’t know what is going on at all; we don’t know what is real and what is fake. Is she possessed? Is she faking it? Mystery! And I loved it.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Last Exorcism until the ending. The characters were likeable and intriguing, I was confused, the plot was fairly original, and it was suspenseful and mysterious. The Last Exorcism had everything going for it but they just didn’t know how to end it I suppose. The ending was terrible…beyond terrible. It really ruined the whole movie for me. I saw this in theaters. In unison the entire audience let out disappointing groans and whining. You could actually feel the sense of disappointment overtake the entire theater.

It was soooo good. Why did they have to ruin it? Whyyyy?

Step Up 3

Posted in Ehhh with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 16, 2011 by Des

Release Date: August 6th 2010

Plot Outline: A group of misfit NYC dancers compete against an evil gang of dancers.

Now, I know the Step Up movies aren’t what one would consider to be a “good” movie. There’s nothing great about them. The plot it mediocre, the idea has been done 100 different ways, they are corny and predicable. I’m sorry, but I love them! Step Up and Step Up 2 were highly entertaining. I could watch people dance for hours and hours, especially extremely good looking people.

I was pretty excited with I heard Step Up 3 was coming out. I however was not thrilled about it coming out in 3D. I hate it when movies are in 3D. I try to avoid them. They are usually bad and only meant to be seen in 3D. That was my mini rant about 3D. Moving on…

Though the Step Up’s aren’t great in general, Step Up 3 was beyond terrible. I normally love the dancing and can excuse the bad acting because I understand that if you are talented in one way such as dancing, then you probably aren’t talented in the field of acting. It wouldn’t be fair to be so

multi talented. I usually excuse the terrible acting in performance films but I just couldn’t in this one. All of the actors seemed like they were trying way too hard. It was painful to watch them try to become the characters.

Also, the characters were just ridiculous! They were doofy and unlikeable. And there was some feud with some dancing gang/ninjas. I’m not sure what was going on. I was confused. Whatever they were supposed to be I just didn’t like them.

The main purpose of the Step Up movies is to enjoy the dancing. Even the dancing was terrible in this movie! None of the dance sequences were that diverse. I felt like I was watching the same dance just in different ways.

It was nothing more than one of those pathetic teen movies, the group of talented misfits, the mysterious girl that is actually on the enemies side but falls in love with the good guy and switches sides, the battle at the end that the good guys of course win.

I expected all of this, I really did. But I also expected exciting dances to watch. Step Up 3 just didn’t deliver.

Release Date: September 25th 2009

Plot Outline: A remake of the 80’s version. Fame centers around talented students at the New York Academy of Performing Arts.

Fame was…interesting. I have so many emotions about it, negative emotions. I didn’t see the 80’s version so I am solely basing this review on the 2009 version.

The beginning of Fame reminded me a lot of American Idol or Americas Got Talent, one of those American “reality” talent shows. It was difficult to distinguish which people were the awful ones and which were the talent. It was amusing because some of the performers I thought were terrible actually turned out to be main characters. Now I say “main” loosely which I will explain soon.

Fame skipped around an enormous amount, way too much to get to know any of the characters, any of their names, and of course to develop any characters or story line. There were so many characters that it was difficult to keep track of them. When one would come back on screen later I would think, “Oh wow, I totally forgot about them”. Fame must have been a fan of skipping around because it also skipped over time very quickly. Freshman year was all of a sudden Sophomore year. What I didn’t like about it was that all the characters were in the same position and had the same conflicts as the year before. There wasn’t really any progression.

You could tell Fame was trying to have substantial characters and story lines because every once in a while we would get small tidbits of a characters life and struggles but not enough to really know the character or really care.

One thing I actually loved about the movie was the performances throughout the movie. They were very good. The actors were quite talented. I was obsessed with Kherington Payne, she played Alice. Her dancing was fantastic! I was so jealous! I want to dance like that!…like anything remotely good.

I didn’t really have a problem with Fame because I love watching people dance. I love all of those lame dancing movies like Step Up, Center Stage…they aren’t good but I will re-watch them a number of times because I am so drawn to the dancing. So, I wasn’t bothered by Fame until the end that is. The ending was a huge issue for me. Being a musical/dance movie the ending should have been phenomenal. It wasn’t. The ending was so anti-climatic. I was extremely disappointed. I was looking forward to the fantastic musical piece at the end, the fantastic ending every musical/dance movie is supposed to contain. The end performance was not nearly as good as the performances throughout the film

All in all Fame was sucky but highly entertaining.
