We've watched three movies this week, and I wanted to give you my take on them. We don't shy away from movies that look 'bad,' instead we relish the experience. Hahaha... If you have some movies that may be considered bad but you still think we should see, please let me know!
Anyway, I'm surprised Knight's was just made in 2013. It struck me as a 90-something film. We sat through the whole thing, and got a couple of chuckles and groans at the gore, but when it was over, my first comment was that this was a couple hours we'd never get back. I think we should have been enjoying a lot more alcohol to truly appreciate this movie.
Would I recommend it? Maybe, but just for time to kill.
The second movie we saw this week was 22 Jump Street with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. It was exactly what we expected. I laughed out loud several times, but usually because what they were doing was so freaking stupid.
I did like the interesting-ish twist at the end when it finally wasn't just like 21 Jump Street. LOL
Of course you want to see this, although everyone but me may have already seen it. Watch 21 Jump Street first, and then pencil in 23 Jump Street for when it comes out. Headquarters will move back across the street, to be next to the Korean church, and Schmidt and Jenko will once again prove that the good guys frequently win through sheer luck.
Our third movie this week was my Netflix pick, Election. As the opening credits rolled, hubby said I'd already seen this one. I don't remember it, but a lot has happened since its release in 1999.
Not sure why I sit here thinking now that I liked this one better than Knight's. Reese Witherspoon was cute (and OH so young!), and Matthew Broderick did a great job as a responsible teacher. The section toward the beginning about some previous indiscretions kind of made me legitimately angry about stupid adults making very bad choices, but overall the film was amusing.
Again, this is a fine movie to watch, but not for any real purpose.
Enjoy your movie-watching, and let me know if there's anything I HAVE to see!
