Two for Tuesday!

Ok, we all know I LOVE movies and I am pretty easy to please…..so I don’t know if I am just get harder to please or if movies are sucking more. We all know I disliked Playing for Keeps, The Apparition, I also disliked The Guilt Trip that I saw on Christmas Eve. But at the same time I love the movie experience so it isn’t all bad…..but let’s expand my suck list please……….

AKA Jack Reacher! 

This movie was about a murder, guns, some sort of construction company scheme, some weird Russians and Tom Cruise. Really, that is all I got out of it. Jack Reacher is a man who just can’t let something go but maybe he should. At times it was so awkward I felt sorry for Tom Cruise and the cheesy lines he had to say were too much for me. I like action, so it was semi-entertaining but this movie has no point or purpose. If we had waited and rented this I might say “eh, that was ok” but nothing more friends!

 The Words
I remember wanting to see this in the theater so I was excited when this came out last week. Ok…stay with me here……This is a movie about books……with 3 stories inside the story. The “outer realm” story about an author and his book played by Dennis Quaid was my least favorite portion, I thought it brought the story down. But the 2 “inner” stories about a book and the book inside the book were mesmorizing. This movie was told as if I were reading the book, like a love story unfolding and I just had to see what was going to happen next. The ending is one you will need to use your brain on and it can be interpreted in many ways I think, FYI. Over all I really enjoyed this movie and you will understand what I mean when you see it! Bradley Cooper was great and I have loved Zoe Saldana since Center Stage. I think you should give this movie a go and let me know when you do so I can talk about it with someone!

I think we might rent Looper tonight….Hope it’s good!

    We rented "The Words" over the weekend and I too loved it other then the Dennis Quaid part. We kinda looked at each other at the end like…really? That is him? -JanetWe saw "Parental Guidance" Christmas Day and it was really funny. Watched "Pitch Perfect" a second time on NYE. Not sure what movies we will watch this weekend.

    We're totally renting Looper tonight! I've been trying to start a petition to have Joseph Gordon Levitt in every movie from now on. It's not taking off.

    Just put The Words on our Netflix queue because of this post! 😉 BTW, saw Machine Gun Preacher because of you a couple blue-rays ago because of your post. I always go by your movie reviews.
