So, this B#!%$...watched some movies.
These are all of the movies I've watched start to finish in July. The last three are re-watches.
Pitch Perfect, starring some cute little girl and a boy whose cheeks I wanna pinch. - This is a musical. Mama doesn't love musicals unless they are of the Disney variety, but this was quite fun...Sister Act 2ish. Sister Act 2 is the best! Young Lauryn Hill. What? Anyway, Adam from Workaholics adds to my instant like of it. It was super cheesy in some spots, some jokes didn't land like they should have, the stress barfing bugged me a little but wasn't a deal breaker. Mindy's brother, Rishi, added to the instant-like scale, as well. Loved the song choices, and the not super sappy way of telling the "love story" part. All in all, I laughed throughout most of it and I could watch it a few more times...but I'm in no rush. Solid B-.52
Super 8, starring the goonies. - It's ET meets The Goonies meets Stand By Me. What's not to love? I'm pretty much a child, so that factors. That dude from Friday Night Lights was in it, I've never seen that though and I don't love his face so they lost a point on the instant-like scale. Plus, his character was on my nerves for the majority of the movie. But, the story was good, not fantastic, but pretty good and the child acting was pretty exceptional. I could watch that again right now, though it felt a little long for no reason in some spots. Solid B++
Epic, starring cartoon characters and the lovely voice of Colin Farrell. Oh, and I think I heard Aziz. We saw this in 3D. I usually hate 3D but I didn't this time. It starts all sappy, I'm going to visit my dad who I don't really know-like, then #^% gets good. Like, for realz. The action was popcorn flick appropriate and the animated cinematography was fantastic. It was quite beautiful. The kid enjoyed it tremendously, no surprise. The 3 teenagers and myself were quite surprised at how much we liked it. It sucked us right in. Needs an Oscar or Hoodie Award. Something. I'll be watching that one again. Solid A-.6
The Conjuring, starring Patrick Wilson and some screaming kids. As a horror nerd who doesn't scare easy, I had low expectations of this movie but it looked decent enough to see. It didn't disappoint. I laugh a lot when I shouldn't, so I don't want to say that it wasn't scary, there was lots of jumping and yelling around me, but I wasn't so much afraid as I was intrigued and entertained. It was like watching id channel at 3am. Well written and well executed. Based on true anything gets an instant like from me, so that factors. Worth the price of admission, which was $7 for 2 movies. I'll be seeing that again. B-
Pacific Rim, starring Luther, Jax Teller, Clay Morrow, and Charlie Day!! So umm, yeah... this movie was Fangirltastic. I was not expecting Charlie Day so instant-like scale went way up! But, I'm not going to pretend that I wasn't drunk about halfway through this one. I hadn't slept in days, had eaten one sandwich for the entire day after I had been drinking for a while, and I was drink.ing., so I don't know if the movie was really good or if I was just content to see Jax on the big screen. I don't really remember what it was about. I do remember around the time I started to realize that I may be less than sober that this was like watching Transformers and that movie with Wolverine as a robot. The action scenes were exciting, and visually appealing. The plot was pretty good with a few sad moments but enough laughter to not get you down. I'll definitely be owning this one and watching again because I really do wanna know if it was good. My co-movie watchers said it was very good. Solid A- cause, hell, I don't know... Wellll... weebly wobbly A- anyway.
Premium Rush, starring Joseph Levitt Jordan Levitt. It's a movie about a bicycle courier. That's important. I hate the enemy's face, minus 1 on the instant-like scale. Love JGL, plus 3 on that same scale. The movie was watchable, JGL is good, and nothing else is really worth mentioning. I could probably watch it again, but odds are that I will not do that for years. Solid C+-1
The Avengers, starring e'erbody! It's amazing every single time. I never know whether I'm the 12 yr old boy or the old ass fangirl when I'm watching. It gets me on all levels. What's better than an A? They get that.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon, starring Shia! and that hawt Victoria's Secret model. I'm easy when it comes to Transformers and Shia, so everyone should see it. Lots of action and the story made sense, unlike the second one. Solid B-.89
Slither, starring Merle and that chick you know but never remember. And Castle. Still drunktastic! It's gross, and funny, and stupid, and gross, and chock full of one-liners. So ridiculous. B movie goodness. Ya gotta love it. Super Solid C- movie on the normal person scale. Solid B on the B movie one. Solid A- from me. Watch with others for max enjoyment.
