COME SEE MYSELF AND JOELLE JONES AT TABEL H-11!
A personal diary keeping people abreast of what I am working on writing-wise.
What a snarky, condescending review. I think this reviewer (Jamie S. Rich) went into this with prejudice. My friend and I enjoyed this movie a lot; the acting was good and the pace was fine. My eight-year-old nephew told me he loved it! A movie can't be boring if it keeps the attention of a kid. I think JC became the unfortunate victim of a critics' bandwagon hate-fest. Critics love to snear and turn their noses up at just about anything that doesn't star Meryl Streep (one of the few A-list stars deserving of their endless fawning), especially when it comes to science-fiction. Ignore this review.I am not sure what my prejudice was, but the defense that an elementary-aged child wasn't bored isn't much of one. My nephew is a little older than this guy's, but he likes some truly terrible movies. (Chipmunks, anyone?) I had awful taste when I was eight.
I don't know [redacted]. I was kind of disappointed with the movie. It looked so good and we were really waiting for it to come out, but when we were watching it we couldn't wait for it to be over. Lol The previews really over hyped the movie. Made it look way better than it was.A pretty fair disagreement. But Respondent #1 was undaunted! Well...kind of.
It's definitely not going to be a classic, but it had a tight story. I was reading a review on a British website saying the movie made no sense at all, which isn't true. Like I said, I think critics are just jumping on the bandwagon because not even one wants to admit they liked the movie and they're simply reveling in their viciousness because their cronies will back them up. Not everyone's cup of tea, but would you agree it's the worst movie you've ever seen?
They probably wait to see what powerful critic says and then the rest fall in line. For example, I haven't seen The Artist yet, but I got so sick of critics creaming themselves over a silent B&W movie just for the nostalgia of it. I haven't even accidentally heard what the movies supposed to be about!
What fops.Yes, indeed.
