Movie Reviews

Marley_and_MeClintBenjamin

I have seen a few movies lately, and wanted to share my reviews of them.  Marley and Me with Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson was awesome.  I won't tell how it ended, but I can tell you that there were many times throughout the movie I was laughing so hard that I couldn't breath.  This is an absolute must to see — the acting was great — the dog was adorably cute and funny, and you won't be disappointed if you watch it.

 

Gran Torino with Clint Eastwood — another great movie.  There was a bit of language in the movie, but there were no inappropriate sex scenes, and the violence was tolerable.  The language was due to the fact that there were gangs in the movie.  I would recommend it, but not for the younger kids.  I took my teen to it, and was okay throughout it while she was watching it.  There was no language on it that she doesn't hear at school (unfortunately).  It had a good story line, and the ending was a surprise.  Great movie — you won't be disappointed.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with Brad Pitt.  Very good movie. I saw this last night with my girlfriends, and we all enjoyed it.  Of course, cried at the end, but the story was very good.  It is about a man who is born old, and as his life goes on he becomes younger and younger.  It is mainly the story about his life, and how he adjusts in an old man's body as a child.  Very great story line, and great love story.  There were a couple of scenes that had intimacy in them, but they were covered and so it wasn't really offensive, and they were brief.  I don't recall any language, so if there was some it wasn't much.  I wouldn't take kids to it, but older teens would be fine to see it.  Very good story — would recommend.

The Mall Cop movie.  I was a little disappointed in it.  The funny parts were mainly the ones that they showed on the previews on television.  I would recommend that you wait until it comes out on DVD to watch this one.  It had its funny moments, but was really just okay.   

 

I think out of all four of these movies — my favorite was Marley and me — definitely one to see again, and definitely you need kleenex with this one.  🙂

  1. I've been thinking about getting out to see a movie and you just made it a no brainer for me, thanx Michele for the useful review! Not only did you save me time and money but also having to sit through a disappointment, which for me is kinda like buying a CD and there is only one good song on it, those are kinda pet peeves of mine. Love You!
