So this is just a filler post, haven’t come up with anything substantial 😛
but anyway, recently I’ve been watching a few movies and here are my opinions on them:
Cloverfield : This movie should have been titled: NOKIA. Haha..anyways I thought it was over-hyped. Not a bad film by any means, but I really expected much more after hearing about so much about it. I loved the whole concept and idea, and thought it was shot really well at the beginning (Beth..mmmm), but towards the end it got a bit boring for me. 6.5/10
John Rambo : 2 words- fucking violent. Definitely not for people with weak stomachs. But if you can stand the gore (like me) then it is a truly enjoyable movie. Action packed, though quite short and the way the last battle ended seemed pretty weak. But definitely worth re-watching on DVD. 8/10
Meet the Spartans : funny from the beginning to end (literally– stay after the credits, LOADS of extra footage). Some semblance of a story line (the 300), and loads of modern pop culture references. So if you’re not up to date on what’s going on in Hollywood and the internet you probably won’t get quite alot of the jokes (like almost half of the screening room I was in- hardly anybody laughed at the youtube part for some reason!) loads of great gags, though I thought the dance-off was too long. 7/10 just cos it kept my sides splitting from start to finish.
Sweeny Todd : I’m a sucker for musicals. I don’t think I’ve ever disliked a movie musical that I’ve watched so far. Sweeny Todd is no exception. Right from the beginning all the way till the dramatic finale I enjoyed every bit. Great style, art direction and even vocal performances. I didn’t expect the twist at the end either. Tim Burton and Johnny Depp should just get married and keep making movies together. 9/10.
Okay that wasn’t too many movies..but may my post be somehow useful in someway to somebody!
