Vanishing on 7th Street (2010)
So everything Ive head about this movie was just bad bad bad….but you know sometimes you just have to see for yourself And usually with sci-fi/fantasy movies no matter how bad the reviews I still have to see it for myself. Even though I had really low expectations about the plot and knew the acting was gonna suck at the very basic level i was expecting some sort of explanation for why the characters were running from shadows….especially when they mentioned that it the sun dosent come up for as long anymore but the darkness was never explained and i just couldn’t finish a movie that was going nowhere and had from what ( wiki says) a super dumb ending. It was also this movie that made me institute the 30 minute rule…meaning that if a movie couldn’t interest me in 30 minutes then its not worth my time haha.
Red Riding Hood (2011)
It was clearly obvious after watching the trailer that Red Riding Hood was geared toward the girly teenyboppers who are either team Edward or team Jacob….but as I said before, I definitely have a teenybopper side to me and I’m team Jacob….. so I thought there might be a possibility that I would enjoy the “hood” but I was wrong. The movie is a re-telling of the classic tale ” little Red Riding Hood” definitely has an interesting premise and could have been done really well but the producers/directors/writers decided rather to focus on making the movie look physically appealing through the use of cinematography and pretty actors rather than focusing on fleshing out a plot that would keep an audience intrigued and let the acting slide too so the movie just ended but being super boring and flat and pretty much annoyed you by my 30 minute mark and that has alot to do with Amanda Seyfried who In my opinion is a horrible actress and it really showed in this movie which is why after 30 minutes I got bored and trashed it.
So for an upcoming spotlight on musicals I decided to check out Gigi and when I rented it from Netflix and it sat around my house for about a month. I think subconsciously I knew the movie was gonna be wack….and when I finally sat down to watch it I was right ,the movie was super corny ( and not in a good way) and really silly. The movie’s plot is not based on anything substantial but instead celebrates extravagance and pomp its bows its head to Parisian high society in the 1900’s and all the retardedness that went along with that. The songs were dumb and I fast-forwarded through all of them and their was no dancing! the costumes didnt impress me, and the plot was dumb and boring. The characters themselves were just really uninteresting people who I would never want to know in real life much less spend 3 hours watching them. For all these reasons after an hour and half I coughed this movie up to a musical fail.
Bluej Rating: D ( for all the movies)
