Movie Review: Movie Hopping

The date: 11/11/11 is a big day for movies, and while I was moving, the hubs and I spent a lot of time seeing movies because 1: we love movies and 2: we didn't have cable and internet for a while.

Then I realized that I haven't done a movie review on the blog since September so I thought it made sense to do a post all about how I've been wasting spending my time.

Tower Heist was just an overall funny movie. It had no real substance; it didn't really make you think; but it did make me laugh for the most part.

Eddie Murphy was the best character--unless you count Miss Iovenko who swore up and down that she was never studying for the bar.

It had some parts that didn't really make sense, but I could see past that seeing that it was a comedy.

I give it 3 of 5 hearts!

I went into In Time knowing that it wasn't going to be the best movie of the year. I didn't care. I was really enthralled with the movie's concept so it didn't matter if the acting kinda sucked--I was all in.

Overall, JT didn't do such a bad job (generally, he's a decent actor) and the concept was very interesting. I just thought there was a lot of unnecessary lull and weird love scenes.

I give this film 3 of 5 hearts!
Now don't judge me for seeing Real Steel because it's a kiddie movie or even a silly movie. I don't care. I love robots. I will see any movie with a robot in it.

The best part about this movie was the little kid. He was a very believable actor and his character worked so well with the robot.

I give it 3 of 5 hearts!

I had to see Moneyball because I'm pretty much in love with Brad Pitt. I've loved him for a very long time and nothing will ever change that.

This movie is based on a true story about how a general manager (Pitt) for the Oakland A's uses a unique computer-generated method by Jonah Hill's character to turn the team into a success.

I give it 4 of 5 hearts!

Have you seen any of these movies--or any other movies--recently?
P.S. Thanks for all the great, insightful comments on the last post!

  2. man, Brad Pitt was so cool, and now he looks so worn and old... unlike George Clooney. I think Angelia Jolie sucked the life out of him haha

  3. I really want to see "In Time." It looks fun and exciting! Plus, JT is hot.

  10. Great movie review, dear. While I got my internet connection fine all the time, I´ve been hit by loneliness (due to being new here in Europe) and disappointments (blogging related) lately that hubby suggested to decrease a bit the amount of time I spend on the net and see movies instead, which I haven´t done for soooo long now. So for 2 wks we´ve spent every single night seeing movies and tonight I´m excited to see the "Bad Teacher" :)

    Have a great weekend.
