Movie Review Monday

With the holidays and the snowstorm and the ice - Shane and I watched a lot of movies! Here are five that I actually remember something about...along with my rating.

Black Swan:
This is the worst movie I've seen in a while. I'm all for the artsy-fartsy, make you think, make you want to be a deeper person...but this movie sucked. Her legs snapped back like a ducks and she began sprouting feathers...need I say more? This movie kind of pisses me off it was so bad...

True Grit:
Really liked this movie! Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon were hilarious in a very dry way...I give it 3.5 out of 5.

Kick Ass:

I didn't think this movie was going to be my style AT ALL, however, it wound up being pretty funny. Basically, a kid is tired of being a wimpy dork so he buys a scuba suit and becomes a real world superher...very funny. I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Easy A:

Um, I pretty much loved everything about this movie. I want to rewind my life and BE this girl in high school. I'd give it a 4.5 out of 5. You should watch it...right now.
Due Date:
This movie was hilarious...I was that person that laughed at everything and laughed a little too long at some of the funny parts. Yep, I was that girl. Anyway, hilarious, I'd give it a 4 out of 5.

Watch your back, Ebert and Roeper.


  1. Nice roundup! I LOVED Easy A too. hehe I was on the fence with black swan. It was definitely creepy and suspenseful, which is cool, and I liked all of the potential meanings but I just kept boiling it down to that hoe is CRAZY.

    Haven't seen the others - I have to check out the last one - in the mood for a funny movie!

  2. Love Movie Review Monday and I am going to go see Due Date now :)

  3. Yes, Due Date was hilarious...I was almost embarassed that I laughed so hard in the theater! :)
