Have you ever seen the movie The Butterfly Effect? If you have what's your favorite ending to it?
When that movie came out I was like 14 and thought it was the coolest. Now, I don’t know. I still think it’s good but I have a lot of issues with it.
My main problem with it is like, I hate that whoever wrote this made it seem like the only problem Kayleigh could ever possibly have in life was Evan. Like if he was never in her life, she would end up this happy, successful, perfect human being… but if he was in her life, everything would end up terrible no matter what.
I had to go back and watch the endings to remember them all clearly and the best ending is obviously the theatrical ending. It’s haunting, even… she sees him and thinks she recognizes him for a second but then keeps going and he keeps going, too, because he still loves her and knows it’s best if he stays away. But like I said, the entire notion that him being in her life would ruin it is not great in itself, so you know. The one where he follows her down the street is alright, I like the idea that he would finally be over the whole thing and they could just be together.
The one where he asks her to coffee is just annoying because he “guesses” her name and then says “You just look like a Kayleigh!” I’d be like OK, stalker, goodbye.
The one where he goes back to a fetus in the womb and strangles himself is absolutely absurd. I know he has this magic power of being able to time travel but does that also mean that his brain as a fetus can function as an adult brain aware of the entire situation and therefore able to understand why he is there and why he has to strangle himself?! It makes no sense and I’m happy they didn’t use it. I don’t know what they were thinking even filming it.
Okay, I was reading some of your movie reviews. Becaues I really like your blog and I love your movie reviews and we basically do the samething because I review movies too and yeah. I just really like your blog. Its in my favorite blogs folder on my computer. BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT, the point is, I saw your review for Midnight In Paris. Which I have been dying to see. I saw the commerical like last month, and I've been trying to see it everywhere but its not around where I live at all.
So my question is, how did you get to see it? Lol. I feel really awkward after this big long description but whatever. Hahaha. I hope you don't think I'm a creeper. Okay, now saying that, you probably think I am. Okay, I'll stop now. Loll.
Thank you so much! That is so nice. I’m glad you enjoy it. :) Don’t feel awkward!
I saw Midnight and Paris when it opened in Manhattan, I think it was May 21. Luckily, I live right outside of NYC, which is where I work a lot of the time, and everything plays there. We also have some indie theatres here in NJ so I’m lucky. Midnight In Paris has been expanding though and is playing at a LOT more places now, I think it will only be growing more and more so keep an eye out.
Top 5 movies that you hate? :) it feels like you always write about movies that you love, there must be a bunch of movies that you really dislike!
If I ever make a “top 5 movies I hate” list, please punch me in the face. Yes, I always write about movies I love because that is why I started this blog, to share my love of film with people. I hate when people sit on the internet and go on and on about how much they hate something. Who cares?
I’ve talked about a few films I hated recently on here. Just look at the reviews tag on this blog and you’ll find them. But usually if I hate a film, I forget about it. I’d much rather spend my time obsessing over movies I adored than griping about how Michael Bay sucks or something. It doesn’t matter. So yeah, be prepared for more of me spreading the movie love!
Are people here? I know it’s 8:00 on a Saturday. I’m too tired to go out. Though I really feel like seeing another movie and I get a discount so maybe I aught to call someone and just go. I ended up seeing Beginners the other night, by the way. I KNOW all of you told me I should see Tree of Life instead but don’t worry, I will, probably next week. Anyway, Beginners. I liked it… kind of, I’m still thinking about it. I wasn’t in LOVE with it the way I thought I would be. The person I went with enjoyed it a lot more. The acting was out of this world, though. I think I can’t come to a real decision on it because IRONICALLY, WE MISSED THE BEGINNING. Of Beginners! Yuk yuk. Anyway, I’m going to be answering questions and stuff so check here and your inboxes if you asked something in like the past month. All of you are awesome for following me. Enjoy your night!!
i only saw the trailer at the cinema.it looked like a classic, GOOD thriller.. with kids that seemed like those talented kids in epic 80s movies. haha .. close? XD
YES. It’s not just a thriller though, it’s also really funny and incredibly moving. The kids are insanely talented, especially the lead Joel Courtney… he blew me away in the kind of way that usually only veteran actors I’ve been obsessed with for years do. Yeah, he was that good and the rest of the kids were just perfect, it totally had the same vibe of the Goonies/Stand by Me casts.
I can see why people might like Super 8 but I honestly didn't think it anything special or original, which is what I expected it to be.
I thought it to be a mix of the goonies, ET and cloverfield.
Which now that I typed it out sounds like it would be pretty great but.....eh
Yeah, a lot of people are telling me that but I just don’t get it. I don’t know how anyone could think it isn’t special. I enjoyed every second of it, I was extremely into it, I cared about every single character, I LIKED every single character, I cracked up laughing several times, I was scared a few times, I cried, the acting was absolutely incredible, the monster was EXTREMELY well done (usually when they reveal a monster/ghost/whatever in a movie I roll my eyes), the element of kids making a movie while this is happening was genius… I could go on and on.
no review of Super 8 ? :( you obviously loved it, would like to hear all your thoughts..
My thoughts can not be captured in words, I loved it so much, just go see it. But thank you for the interest! Seriously, I tried to write something as soon as I came home from the theatre (which I never do anymore, but I was inspired) and it was just an incoherent mess. It was basically just “HEARTS STARS RAINBOWS LOVE CREYS” etc
That Nothing But Trouble (1991) starring Demi Moore, Chevy Chase, and Dan Ackroyd (which has been one of my favorite movies since I was a child), is essentially a murder-free, hilarious version of House of 1000 Corpses (2003).
