Weekend Movie Update: Scary-Good and “TROUBLE” Indeed!
HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET
Anna’s Review: Finally, a decent scary movie! Suspenseful and unpredictable, but not gory. Max Thieriot could use some work but definitely someone to watch! 😉
TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE
Deb’s Review: I know I know–I couldn’t believe what I was seeing either! Sadly, there is definitely “trouble” with this movie. A few descriptive words to sum it all up from various critics–who I happen to completely agree with as follows: predictable, uninspiring, underwhelming, uncomfortable, clunky, sleepy (insert snooze alert here–literally), disappointing, stale, cheesy, boring. A shame since one of the film locations was Macon, GA and it is about recruiting a potential number one pick for the Atlanta Braves. On a bright note, if you are a Justin Timberlake fan, you may find his performance charming and definitely a welcome distraction. If you are not a JT fan…do not even waste your time. I will not be going to see this movie again, nor will I rent it on DVD or even pay a $1 at Red Box for it. I suggest renting Moneyball (which is a great movie!) or perhaps an “oldie goldie” baseball movie like A League of Their Own or Field of Dreams instead.
Anna’s Review: Being the Justin Timberlake fan that I am, I knew I had to see this movie ASAP! I definitely should have waited. Oddly enough, it was Justin who looked most seasoned. Throughout the film, I thought Clint Eastwood was going to die… not his character but HIM! He should have stopped after Gran Torino and left the business on a good note. Even Amy Adams was dull and not worth watching for 2 hours. Overall, save your time, save your money and go see Finding Nemo!
Deb & Anna: We miss Lawless already!
