Mini Movie Reviews #10
For some reason I was expecting a movie based on a true story or maybe just something a little more boring. I ended up being pleasantly surprised. This one was a lot of fun and I ended up really liking it. I know people have a love/hate relationship with Ben Affleck but I like him just fine and really enjoyed him in this role. I've always been a fan of dark comedies and by that I mean violent but funny. I know, it's weird. Just smile and nod.
As I may have mentioned before, my husband and I have completely different preferences when it comes to movie genres. But one type of movie we can always agree on is horror. So we see a lot of them. Most horror movies are horrible. With no real purpose but to scare you, they sort of forget they need a story line. This one fell into that rut. Totally lame. It was scary for about two minutes and then got lame and went down hill from there. Wouldn't recommend it.
I was really looking forward to this one. My husband hates movies like this but is a great sport about going....as long as he gets popcorn. This one was amazing, guys. I loved it. It's not about scary aliens attacking and men in the world pulling up their pants, spitting then pulling out guns to show how awesome they are. It was much more calm, scientific and beautiful. I saw the big surprise coming from a mile away but I still loved it. You should totally go see this one. Just don't expect action and crap. This is NOT Independence Day. It's better than that.
