The Beaver-review

Wow, this was like thirteen movies in one. There were elements from too many different movies. I had slightly high hopes for this one. I've watched a lot of Mel Gibson films. My friend watching the movie with me thought Jodie Foster was Helen Hunt. They both have similar features and haven't done much work that makes them just another woman on the screen.

I don't know if this was supposed to be a comeback film for Mel or Jodie. Such a waste of a cute beaver. 
=)  1 star.

Jumping the Broom- review

Jumping the Broom out now on Blu-ray and DVD.
Laz Alonzo as the leading guy? Paula Patton's kill me now acting.  I know why did I watch it if I don't like the leads? Because I was giving it a chance and I support black films duh. Skip it! 1 1/2 stars

Off Subject- Misfits

I think this weekend I discovered my new favorite show. The show is called Misfits. It is from the Brits. The show focuses on 5 young adults who all gain superpowers after a storm.  They discover their powers and get to know each other. There is more I can say but I don't want to give away anything.   I totally dig the concept and like each character in different ways. The last few episodes make me feel it could be going downhill but I will remain positive. Season 3 is set to come out in November so I will have to watch the return of all my old shows until then.
You can catch Season 1 and 2 on Hulu.

How Do You Know -review

Welp, I watched this one because I have a crush on Paul Rudd. I'm not sure what I was supposed to feel about this film. It was a very awkward love story. The story is about woman (Reese Witherspoon) who plays for the USA softball team. She is torn between two guys Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson. Actually, she seems more torn about opening herself up to love. Paul Rudd's character is super awkward and as much I like him in real life I just didn't feel the urge to root for him to win the girl. It really wasn't a good film. It was like they were trying so hard to not be your typical love story that they lost the feel good value. 1 and a half stars.
