I seriously should do better with movie reviews around here. I go see a movie practically every week with my husband on our date night so I see a lot of them! Anyway, here's a few we've seen recently.
Oh boy. Truthfully I wasn't dying to see this one. But, as I mentioned, my husband and I go out once a week to see a movie (mostly for the popcorn) and sometimes we don't have much to choose from. This one was as ridiculous as I thought it would be. Shirtless hero, helpless female, mustached villain. Slow motion swinging from vines scenes. While entertaining, I wouldn't see it again.
Let's face it, I see the Star Trek movies to be entertained and for the characters. I never could get into the series but I do enjoy these movies. This one was great. Adventurous and comedic. I'd say it's worth the watch.
The whole reason I decided to write a movie review post. I love the Bourne movies. I've seen them a dozen times each at least. So, you can imagine how happy I was that they were making another one. Sigh! I even re-watched all the other movies this weekend in preparation! I was so disappointed, guys! It was entertaining enough but it didn't feel like a Bourne movie. Something was just off. Jason wasn't as cool as in the other movies and I was actually bored. I figured out what was wrong the morning after seeing it. They uses a different screenwriter. Stupid, stupid, Hollywood! Makes me furious. Movie stars and directors do NOT make the movie. You need a decent screenplay! Even The Bourne Legacy (you know, the one without Matt Damon) was better than this and why??? Because they had the same screenwriter that wrote the other Bourne movies! So, yeah, don't waste your time. The others are better. This one just couldn't live up to Tony Gilroy's writing.
