And Seen…About Time!

Posted on

Time travel, rom-com, Rachel McAdams. Check, check and check.  It really was one of the feelgood movies of the year.  Plus, it’s a great movie to see until you can get into a showing of Hunger Games: Catching Fire where you don’t have to sit in the first three rows.

And Seen…Captain Phillips – Guest Review!

Posted on

Unfortunately, we will not be seeing Captain Phillips together… or at all (Traci is seeing it with her dad and Julie has boycotted pirate themed movies since Pirates of the Caribbean 2). So we enlisted the help of hilarious and awesome screenwriter Katie Anne Naylon to review Captain Phillips for us.

Have you seen Captain Phillips?

Yes.

What was your favorite part of the movie?

I liked the conversations between Captain Phillips and Muse, the leader of the Somali pirates on board. They did such a great job of making you empathize with all the characters in the story.

What was your least favorite part of the movie?

I thought the opening sequence with the “Captain Phillips has a real family back home” felt vaguely unnecessary and forced.

If you could change one thing in the movie what would it be?

Would I also be changing history if I said I wanted to change Somalia to be a nice safe place for young boys to become young men (and a place for ships to sail past without fear)???

There was a weird sub-plot with a neighboring ship trying to help and then the Navy Seals trying to help and them sort of stepping over each other…they should have finished that plot or not included it, I suppose.

Did you cry? Good cry or bad cry?

I almost cried. Does that count? It would have been a good cry. I was really engaged by the story.

Rate this Tom Hanks performance:

  1. Absolute favorite
  2. Top 5
  3. Top 10
  4. Better than Larry Crowne worse than Castaway

How many times did you think of Castaway while watching this?

  1. 1-3
  2. 3-5
  3. 5-10
  4. 10+
  5. Wait, this wasn’t Castaway?

Which co-star would you like to see Tom Hanks reunited with?

  1. Meg Ryan
  2. Elizabeth Perkins
  3. Daryl Hannah
  4. Matt Damon
  5. Shelly Long
  6. Robin Wright
  7. Peter Scolari
  8. None of the above
  9. All of the above – let’s take a minute and imagine that movie

What is your feeling on pirates after seeing this movie?

  1. Love ’em
  2. Hate ’em
  3. They’re just misunderstood
  4. A complicated mix of emotions I couldn’t possibly express in a multiple choice box

How would you rate this movie?

  1. See it in the theater
  2. Rent it
  3. Plane movie
  4. Watch it when it comes on cable
  5. Never ever see this movie

Why should people trust your opinion?

And Seen…The Bling Ring!

We love you all so much that sometimes we hold our reviews until the movie is out of theaters so you aren’t able to see it. Now and again we are more about the community service than the review.  Here’s some reasons to avoid The Bling Ring, even on video.

And Seen…The Heat!

Posted on

It’s almost as though the studios planned this heatwave as an impressive marketing campaign to drive people into the theaters. Avoid the heat by seeing The Heat.  Well played.

And Seen…Ryan’s Studio Takeover!

While the gals were away Ryan decided to play. He created his own movie review compilation. His critiques might be short but they are extremely deep an intuitive.
