Horrible movie

I saw Margot at the Wedding last night. And as much as I don’t want to do movie reviews here, because I care about you, I need to tell you how horrible it was. The plot was limited and Margot was mean-spirited. It was like watching someone step on a dog’s tail over and over again. We couldn’t even muster the energy (which involves keeping ones eyes open), to stay for the whole thing. Let me save you $9: Margo is a pill and this movie stunk.

    The quality of Hollywood movies, overall, has gone down dramatically in the last ten years or so, in my view.  Maybe it’s just me getting old, but what I see any more is an emphasis on catering to the least common denominator with things like special effects and excessive cussing and/or toilet humor, and less and less emphasis on things like intriguing character development and quality dialogue.

    Well, this movie had zero special effects. Part of the problem may be that Jack Black was totally out of place; he really shoulnd’t appear anywhere near Nicole Kidman. And also, the screen play…oh, horrible!

    You couldn’t be more right. That movie was absolutely terrible. And I loved Squid and the Whale, which made it hurt even more to hate this movie. I didn’t even finish it.

    I have Squid and the Whale on DVD and haven’t watched it yet. I just reconnected my DVD player and for some reason it’s only showing in black and white. I’m such a luddite.

    Maybe I’ll get inspired to try and fix it this weekend.

    Go see Juno. Great movie. Great soundtrak.

    As for your dvd player, I bet you have the wires connected wrong. Check your connections.

  6. HeatherLeigh says:

    Yeah, but Wine-Oh…how do I know the right way to connect them? I matched the colors. Am I just a dolt?

    The previews for Juno look good. Maybe I’ll go see it this weekend, now that you have also recommended it.  The reviews I saw were mixed. But I am a sucker for a movie with a great soundtrack. For example, garden State = OK movie but amazing soundtrack.

  7. wine-oh says:

    Hmm… id check both connections on both components.

    100% agree about Garden State. Didnt care for the movie, but great soundtrack. This isnt the case with Juno. Good movie and equally good soundtrack. In fact I downloaded more tunes by the band who did one of the main songs. The band is called The moldy peaches.

  8. HeatherLeigh says:

    Yeah, I even had someone check it for me and still no clue. Maybe I need to look at it again. <big sigh>

    Definitely thinking about seeing Juno. Did watch some sucky movies that I had taped last night: Rumor Has It (sucked) and Black Dahlia (sucked). I’ll start to worry that it’s just me; or at the very least that I am not a good picker.

  9. wine-oh says:

    Im not a good picker either. Except for Juno. I dont go for the big holiday opening, will smith, special effects, hollywood blockbuster extraviganza type films. Prefer movies like The Queen, or Lost in Translation. The exception is Superbad. What a hysterical movie.

    Wine-Oh, you and I have the same exact taste. I haven’t seen Superbad yet. Waiting for it to come out On Demand. I’m still catching up on things I should have seen years ago. HBO is such a revelation (I know…I said I was a luddite).
