Movie Monday.

Here is a review of the movies I watched this week:

I'm a George Clooney fan. I was not an Up in the Air fan. But, it wasn't the worst movie I have ever seen. I found it to be a little predictable. (even the parts that were meant to be unpredictable). It was kind of a fun story, it is LOOSELY based on a real guy and that's kind of neat.
It is NOT worth theater prices, it's a renter.

In all reality this movie deserves a post all of it's own.
And at some point I'll probably do one.
I am not a believer in propaganda movies, but since this is a subject I've done lots of my own research on I agreed to watch it. After watching it late Friday night (and not falling asleep) I watched it again Saturday (and I'll probably watch it with Grammy before I return it). It was that good. The first thing that I really, really liked about this movie is that there were not horrible graphic pictures of the animals, I cannot handle that and don't want to see it. The other great thing about this movie is it really touches on every food subject that should be covered (imho) it isn't just about meat, or corn. It talks about everything. I am already in the process of changing how I eat and this movie has really sealed the deal. If we spent as much time and energy on worrying about the CRAP that we put into our bodies as we did on (the fake phenomenon) Global Warming we could be well on the way to better, healthier eating.
Rent this movie, watch it now.

I thought Beyond a Resonable Doubt was right up my alley. I love a good lawyer/court/jury movie. This was NOT one of those. It was SUPER predictable (even though Garrett says it's easier for me to predict movies because I watch so many). The acting wasn't all that good and Amber Tamblyn talks funny, which is annoying. This movie is a little bit silly, so wait until it makes it to the middle section at Blockbuster and rent it for $1.99 it is so not worth $4.99.

Daybreakers was one of The Worst movies I have ever seen. It was horrible. I'm gonna go ahead and put it on the top 25 worst movies EVER in the history of the universe list. We almost walked out, and we NEVER walk out of movies. It was really super gory and bloody for no reason. And the story line was not worth watching. The vampire's name was Edward, they couldn't think of anything better? Are all vampires named Edward? What were they thinking? Please do not waste your time watching this. Even if someone gives it to you for free, don't watch it just pass it on to an enemy or something.

We liked Up in The Air - maybe a 7 out of 10.

Beyond a Reasonable Doubt - we thought was HORRIBLE - like a 1 out of 10, if that. Bad acting, super slow. And for them to get Michael Douglas in it, I wondered if he was related to someone in the movie and he did it as a favor - either that, or someone was blackmailing him to be a part of such a crappy movie.

Maybe I'll look into the Food one you mentioned, but no promises.

We watched The Invention of Lying - it was slow, but a little funny. I don't think the few funny parts made up for the rest of the movie though.

riddle me that said...

I would give up in the air like 5.5/6.

Beyond a Resonable Doubt was bad. I Loled at Michael Douglas being blackmailed. I was a little surprised that he was in such a crappy movie too!

We are supposed to get a bad ice storm this weekend maybe I'll pick up the Invention of Lying! Thanks for the suggestion!
