Scott Pilgrim VS the World
Why we chose this movie: We have really been slacking on blogging, and well watching movies all together. We both wanted to see this and heard it was pretty good so we went for it.
Beeps: I had heard from friends that if you've read the graphic novels, that you'll hate the movie, but if you haven't, then you will love the movie. I did not read the graphic novels, but I also didn't love this movie. I really liked the first hour or so, but then things started spiraling downward from there. I felt that the first few fight scenes were pretty well done, there was plenty of movie between them. However, as we approached the end of the film it felt very rushed. The last few fight scenes were sort of just there, and really didn't seem like they put much effort into them. All in all, I think that it's worthy of a viewing. Especially if you're into video games, slacking, or chicks with different colored hair. 2 1/2 stars.
Apes: This movie was alright. It started off strong, but after the 2nd or 3rd evil ex it really lost a lot. The film sort of felt like an indie film trying to be big budget box-office, and I don't think it quite worked. The characters are poorly developed and quite frankly I don't give a damn about them! If you don't care about the characters then whats the point? *shrug* If some one really wanted me to watch this with them I would, but I'd be sure to have a craft project or my laptop out! I give it 2 1/2 stars... take it or leave it!
Overall we give it 2 1/2 stars.
