Movie Review: The Ugly Truth

Yay for free movie passes. The hubby and I got to see this advanced screening on Wednesday, courtesy of More FM. Katherine Heigl plays an unlucky-in-love neurotic young professional who gets love tips from a manly man’s perspective in bagging her ‘perfect’ man. It’s R16, so expect some crude adult humour and four letter words.…

Movie Review: District 9

The hubby exclaimed one night that we have to go watch District 9. I didn’t know much about the movie except for the trailers. Hubby explained in a nutshell that whilst awaiting the OK for Halo, Peter Jackson jumped at the opportunity to produce District 9 – a movie that has had rave reviews due…

Pregnant Fight Club

First rule of Pregnant Fight Club – you have to be pregnant. Second rule of Pregnant Fight Club – no punching the belly. Third rule of Pregnant Fight Club – no punching at all. Actually, no hurting at all. Pregnant Fight Club doesn’t really work does it…? Let’s just bake cupcakes – I could do…

Movie Review: 17 Again

Ok, I admit it. The only reason why I wanted to see this was because of Zac Efron. I loved him in Hairspray, which is an awesome movie overall albeit seen on an airplane, and I have been sucked in with all the tweens into seeing this one. It’s a bit of fun, with some…

Movie Review: The Knowing

Nicolas Cage - a man that could send us all into a Prozac addiction with his acting - stars as an astronomist whose boy brings home a page of numbers that seem to map out the disasters of the last 50 years. The question is – does it predict what will happen next? It’s a spooky movie…

Movie Review: Max Payne

Another military experiment gone wrong. An addictive drug called Valkyr is created to make soldiers stronger, braver and so forth, and also more stupid, I think. Max Payne, played by Mark Wahlberg (who I thought was Stephen Dorff throughout the whole film!), is a detective obsessed with avenging his wife and son’s murder. That whiny…

Movie Review: He’s Just Not That Into You

It’s taken me a while to watch this movie, mainly to spare the husband from yet another chick flick. However, I’m glad I watched it with him, and it was’t at all as unbearable as I thought it might be. I was thinking it was another men-are-bastards (let’s throw stones at them) type of movie…

Movie Review: The Chaos Experiment

Yeah, not the best of psychological thrillers I”m afraid. A very unattractive Val Kilmer is a deranged man claiming that he has trapped six people in a steam room, and threatens to kill them if his story about global warming is not front page news. Also called The Steam Experiment, it’s reminiscent of the Saw…

Movie Review: Brüno

Oh deary me! After having seen Borat, I knew I was in for more themes and scenes that push the boundaries of public cinema. Some might think it’s sick and stupid, but I think Brüno is hilarious! Rarely do you laugh out loud and get teary-eyed for most of a movie. I laughed so much…

Movie Review: Seven Pounds

I have always liked Will Smith and he did a terrific job in this heart-wrenching movie. Driven by guilt, Ben Thomas is on a mission to help others in life-changing ways, both for them and him. Ben also has amazing box jellyfish as pets. I didn’t realise how mesmerising they could be, especially in a…
