Bride Wars 2009 (w/ Anne Hathaway, Kate Hudson) – 3 stars – It was absurd how crazy these ladies were but I really enjoyed how the ending was not necessarily happy for everyone like a lot of films are.
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past 2009 (w/ Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner) – 3 stars – I would have liked this much more if there wasn’t so much sexual conversation, granted it wasn’t too nasty, and the most nudity there was were women in underwear, but I just think that took away from the story :: shrugs :: anyway, it was funny and made me cry too.
Tea For Two 1950 (w/ Doris Day, Gordon MacRae) – 3 stars – Ah, I adore Doris Day as usual. I hadn’t seen this one in a while but it was fascinating with all the music and the lovely love story!
Firstborn 1984 (w/ Teri Garr, Christopher Collet, Peter Weller, Corey Haim) – 3 stars – This I just watched because it was the 56th Robert Downey Jr. film I’ve seen but he wasn’t in it very much at all. The story though was intense about a teen and his mom who is working hard at raising him and his brother. The issue at hand though is that she gets a boyfriend who turns their world around.
The Boy In Striped Pajamas 2008 (w/ Asa Butterfield, Jack Scanlon) – 4 stars – Amazing idea of what life may have been like for those who were children during the cruelty of Nazi Germany. This is about a young boy who moves near a camp and meets a Jewish boy whom he befriends while being taught that Jews are evil. Very good film.
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes 1953 (w/ Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell) – 3 stars – This was cute. I still can’t stand Marilyn Monroe’s acting or singing at all, but I did laugh a few times. This was about two friends – one who is being investigated to see if she is loyal and the other who is falling for the investigator.
A Letter to Three Wives 1949 (w/ Jeanne Crain, Linda Darnell, Ann Sothern) – 3 stars – when they receive a letter from a friend saying they had an affair with one of their husbands, they each try to review their own husband and the love they share or shared.
Bell, Book and Candle 1958 (w/ James Stewart, Kim Novak) – 2.3 stars – A witch tries to win over a man whom she finds interest in, but she hasn’t the ability to love even though she has the ability to make others fall in love with her. Can this be different for her? This movie was just a bit boring for me for some reason and Jimmy Stewart is my favourite actor ever! I was a bit disappointed.
Morgan Stewart’s Coming Home 1987 (w/ Jon Cryer, Viveka Davis) – 3.25 stars – A teen who lived most of his childhood in boarding schools and has quite a love for horror movies ends up finally spending time with his parents who haven’t seen him in many years. He has dreams of what a family is and hopes they can have a lot of fun together. Only thing is, his very rich parents and politician parents might not be anything as he had remembered them to be. . and love comes his way which might make things even more difficult for him! This movie I thought was really funny and cute. My friend Mellie would love it. 😉
