Sex and the City 2

Wow. That was not a good movie. Here’s why. 1. It was horrifically disrespectful to Muslims and religious people anywhere. You may not believe the same things that other people believe, but you have to respect their beliefs and their culture, especially when you are in their country. The scene with Samantha in the market

Stranger than Fiction

I haven’t posted any movie reviews here lately because nothing that I have seen of late has been good enough to warrant writing about. Since I last wrote about movies — which, looking back, seems to have been in August of last year — I have seen some bad movies and some not bad movies.

Dreamgirls

I watched Dreamgirls with my neighbour on Sunday night. I have to say that I was not impressed. ***Spoilers Follow*** (…but it doesn’t much matter as the movie is so predictable anyway) I am not a huge fan of R&B (too soppy and histrionic), so that probably didn’t improve this movie’s chances of grabbing me,

Surrounded by Potters

***This post does not contain any spoilers.*** I ordered the latest and last Harry Potter book last week and it arrived on Saturday, so I am back in the land of Muggles and Blast-Ended Skrewts. I also persuaded my neighbour to come with me to watch the latest Harry Potter movie this evening, so I

Too Soon?

Ali

You’re going to yell at me, but I really think this movie would have been better with less boxing. I know, I know, it’s a movie about the most famous boxer ever. It’s a guy flick. Etc, etc. But as much as I think Muhammad Ali is a neat person to learn about, I don’t

The Affair of the Necklace

Why do they choose American actors to play parts that require British accents? Has an American actor ever pulled it off? I don’t think so. This is a story of intrigue that takes place during the reign of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. The story is mildly interesting, but the movie is badly miscast and
