WOW it's James McAvoy day and I did not even plan that.


Becoming Jane Wow, I did not enjoy this movie at all. Anne could not save this movie. She reminded me so much of Elizabeth Bennett, that I could not see her as Jane Austen.  James McAvoy was just annoying all the way around and at times seemed very Wickham like and was sporting some serious Mr. Collins hair.  The story ambled along and drug itself out and was just not something I could engage with or enjoy. I will stick to the Austen movies.
Rating::  2. MEH
Scruff:  Not much .. it is the Regency period (a few of the unsavory men sported scruff)

Penelope James McAvoy again and again a movie I could not love.  The premise is cute. And the resolution is adorable, but most of the cast bordered on shrill and annoying. Christiana Ricci is Penelope, she is cursed with a pig face and her mom hides her from the world so they will not judge her. Once she find "one of her own" to accept her and promise to love her forever the curse will be broken. It is probably 20 mins too long. It is not as bad as all the critics say, but it is weak and could do with a better edit. Some of the set up shots looked great, but it did not stay in flow with the movie.
Rating: 5. I would recommend this on a case by case basis
Scruff: Minimal amounts over all

Vanity Fair Of all the movies I saw today this is the one I disliked the most. It is very dark and the plot crawls along, not even Reese being ultra cute could not save this overly heavy and weighted film.  At over 2 hours long it is way too long. It also seemed to have like 6 endings, I was so ready for it just to be done.  I considered a few times just turning it off, but I wanted credit for sitting through it.
Rating:  1. KILL ME NOW - I GAVE UP HOW MUCH OF MY LIFE
Scruff: Here and there, not too much.

Love Song  Oh Christian Kane what I do for you. This movie is begging for a perv edit, of just the singing. It is a cute premise, but the female lead could not carry her part at all. She is a great singer, but she was like a piece of dry bread next to Christian, who was really working it.  Christian plays well and sings pretty and does the charming rouge really well.  I could do without the longish hair (just an aside that s2 Angel hair about ep 7 - that is the hair he needs to keep).
Rating:  7. Would watch again with friend  (looks at [livejournal.com profile] evila_elf)
Scruff: None that I noticed. Chris might have been covered in grease with long ass hair, but he was shaved.

Coming Soon:  The cast is fairly insane in this little 1999 movie. Just check out IMDB (be sure to see the full cast to get a few extra little cameos). James Roday (Psych) sporting a massive amount of Hugh Grant floppy wedge like hair is a bit of a romantic rival to Ryan Reynolds, who has questionable fashion sense, a headband and chin pubes. This movie is about 3 rich girls who are trying to have an orgasm.  It is a sweet movie, with some questionable acting and a pretty low budget. It is quirky and sweet in the best ways. Just a sweet movie that does not go for cheap jokes, but lets the humor develop and flow.
Rating: Would watch again with friend  (looks at [livejournal.com profile] evila_elf)
Scruff: See above . Chin pubes, I say no more

I think I have a tiny cushion now, so no need to mainline films daily. :)
Mood:: 'lazy' lazy
