Below are movies that I consider "MISS", so don't bother!

the secret world of arrietty

Friday, July 13th, 2012

I’ve seen a few adaptations of The Borrowers growing up, but this is the first animated. I was excited to watch this since it’s a Studio Ghibli creation, but much to my dismay, it wasn’t very good. There are no flaws to the animation itself since it was very well done. The problem lies with Read more…

what’s eating gilbert grape

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Gilbert Grape has a tough life. After the death of his father and the disappearance of his older brother, his mother has transformed from a town beauty into a morbidly obese, house-stricken woman while his sisters tend to her and he tends to his younger, retarded brother Arnie. In this small town, where everyone knows Read more…

step up 3d

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

The very last scene of this movie is hilarious, but in a very pathetic way. Requesting to change one’s major seriously does not require an eloquent speech to the dean of the school. If I recall correctly from my experience in undergrad, all that was needed was a pen and paper, a few signatures and Read more…

step up

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

My brother says this is the “only Step Up movie with a story” and I can’t disagree with the truth. A guy from the streets of Baltimore finds salvation in the Baltimore School of Art where his hip-hop moves stir curiosity and lead to a world of unknown possibilities. It’s really quite beautiful when you Read more…

This movie is not worth the 7.8 rating that it currently has on IMDB. I don’t even know how to start with what was so disappointing with this film. There were so many unanswered questions, a poorly written story, weak character relationships… Perhaps the only interesting part of the film was its ending, the revelation Read more…

love, wedding, marriage

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

I found Mandy Moore really unattractive in this movie. Actually, the whole film was a bit dry for me. It’s a romantic comedy, but it lacked humor, spunk, originality. It’s centered around a marriage counselor whose recent marriage was inspired by the near-30 year long marriage between her parents. After an affair is revealed, Mandy Read more…

Peter Pan, the miniseries…was not as great as the ratings on IMDB seem to imply. For me at least. Although it was great to have the back story of how Peter Pan and his gang of friends ended up in Neverland, the story was excruciatingly slow and boring. The acting, I felt, was amateur at Read more…

recien cazado

Monday, May 28th, 2012

When a local playboy, Sebastien, wakes up to discover he got married over night, he must come to grips with the fact that his way of living needs to change. After making an agreement to end his marriage with his one-night stand, Alexa, when she gets her period, Sebastien’s world starts to change must to Read more…

jane eyre (2011)

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

I believe I heard good reviews for this recent adaptation of Jane Eyre, but from personal review, I liked the 1996 version better. There were great things about this one though. The visuals were well-done. It was as if the mood of each scene was perfectly captured by the overall setting and placement of everything. Read more…

war horse

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

I didn’t know much about this movie when I watched it besides the alluring posters I saw around the city. I suppose it’s not hard to assume what the movie’s about just from the title, War Horse, because that’s exactly what this movie’s about. A horse in a war. Although this movie was very well-made Read more…
