Movie Reviews

I'm a bit behind on my movie reviews. Alright a lot behind. So I'm just going to hit those I've seen in the past few weeks.

Slumdog Millionair : It was on my Netflix list long before the Oscars but after it did so well with the awards and was highlighted in the talk shows, I was even more curious. It was a lot more raw than I expected, I think I would have been impressed if I hadn't gone in with high expectations after the awards. I know, I shouldn't listen to the awards....It was good though, entertaining, original, I definitely recommend renting/flixing it. Makes a good date type movie.

He's Just Not That Into You : I knew nothing about this before seeing it. I was looking for a chick flick to see with a chick buddy and it seemed to fit. The cast was full of very familiar faces which was suprising since the two leads were the least well known. It was definitely a sappy, cheezy girly movie. But you know any movie that can make me smile, laugh, embarassed, uncomfortable, suspensful and sad all in one - well that's entertaining and worth watching. Worth a rent/flix.

That's all for now.

I wonder if that title/movie premise was based on the Sex and the City episode where Miranda was told by Burger to forget the guy because he was "Just not into her." It became her theme for that episode and she enlightened other emotionally stressed women by telling them to move on, because their guy was "Just not that into them."

wouldn't surprise me, it had a sex in the city feel as far as filming style.
