Movie Reviews

A quick movie review. I feel qualified only because I have intelligence, taste and morals! (Actually, since my husband was hurt badly in 2003 and I was last year – we have watched (verifiably) over two thousand movies. That is sad, in a way, because we think holly weird passes the wrong messages to younger people.

Here goes:

Noah: The actors and special effects were jut fine, but something “lacked ” in the writing. If anyone was trying to see what Noah of the Bible was really like – this was wayyyyyy far off base. As far as everyone I have spoken with – the consensus is the same – entertaining, but nothing really special.

Under the Skin: For all the hype you would think this such an amazing move! It was- amazingly unprofound (is that a word?) and stupid. Yes, the actress is very pretty, and her nude body is fine too – but as far as the movie – YUK. Don’t spend your money. REALLY. It wasn’t a spectacular alien movie. She isn’t as pretty as Brad Pitt’s wife, you know who I mean, Angelina, and most of the movie was focused on her face. She has a nice smile, but as far as the rest of the acting – acting? Where? We watched it all because my curiosity is extreme, and I needed to know if there was a point I would be overwhelmed with the quality or story of the movie. NOT. If anything I was under whelmed. What a piece of trash and the time I spent “giving it a chance” is lost forever. Bleck!

Non-Stop with Liam NIiesem (that’s close) – what an unexpected A movie! I was totally shocked as I hadn’t heard of it, and it was one of those movies you can’t take your eyes off the screen because it is so exciting. Well worth the money. There is something sexy about that man.

Heaven is Real: I read the book. It was quite good, and a best seller because it is true. I don’t think the movie was quite as thrilling as the book, but my husband (who is crazy for wild stuff), even professed, he really enjoyed it.   A true story. I can relate to being “out of the body” as I was once after an accident…good to sit with family and ponder life and all that we can’t see.

Forgive the typing and all, I am still in a splint and with only my right hand (am left-handed) it is what you see is what you get. CHOOSE your movies carefully – they are sneaky in holly weird….we saw a movie (can’t think of the name of it) not too long ago, and NONE of the sexual violence was in the previews.

I had an attempted rape. It’s not funny, and it’s not sexy. Think of your daughters, sisters, mothers and girlfriends, guys, and don’t let that you see on screen entice you.

It’s your life – PICK AND CHOOSE!


BTway – I always choose “elderly or seniors with tags and categories as they NEED to be involved with life, with reality, with a part of what is happening now.  They have earned it!

    Dear Marsha,
    ☺Some time back my sons took me and my wife to a local language movie. I could not tolerate the show. I found my two sons gazing at the screen. They could enjoy the trash. I think we too should see through their eyes and mind. These days minds have become hard and so soft movies are not being liked. Recently I have seen Roman holiday again and enjoyed.

      I agree with you. That is why I do watch a few questionable films. I want to know what the children and young people are being “fed”. If I voice an opinion at least no one can say, “Oh you don’t know what you are talking about – you haven’t even seen that movie.” However, that being said, I will not waste a moment of my time on what I know from the start, is going to be trashy. It is my life, and in those moments I would rather be a good example (although I have had my days of being the best example of what NOT to do), and then voice my opinion. Gently, lovingly, and intelligently, I hope! These kids are being led down the road to destruction, and with the television in the states, the movies, and the bad points on the internet, I would love to reign them in and try to help protect them by example. I do love some of the quality movies that have been produced! Have a beautiful day. I have two sons and one daughter, and eight grandchildren – oh my where did the time go. I want to hold them all in my heart and arms! I can’t forget my beloved husband. Sorry for writing a book in response! Blessings to all.
