Wow, been a long time, but I am slowly getting back into shape with the radio. This week I managed to see the “cashing in on Twilight” movie Beautiful Creatures. Surprisingly, it’s actually better made, shot for shot, than Twilight, and the characters feel more real (which isn’t actually hard). The problem arises when we get boggled down in book-lore and Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson try to make it a little too epic. It still gets an agreeable dice roll 3.
Radio Review: Twilight Breaking Dawn Part II
This week I was the lucky one who got to see the last Twilight movie. You can tell I’m excited, right? Actually, it’s become sort of a tradition for me to see them because, while I am not a Twilight fan, I do understand them thanks to by Anne Rice fangirling past.
So, I decided to review the film for the fans and not the haters! By that standard Breaking Dawn Part II is actually the best of the bunch in my opinion. It has cool vampire powers, some nifty effects here and there, and the lease amount of staring!
In the non-Twihard world, it actually comes away with a decent dice roll 3.
Five Favourite Specific Film Genres
I love all kinds of movies – the good, the bad and even the just-good-looking, but there will always be more movies than I can watch, so how to pick which one? Usually, I catch whatever is at the cinema, or maybe a friend recommends a movie. On top of these standard ways of thinning the herd, there are a few specific “genres” that will always get me to watch a film, even though I know it’s probably going to be bad. I say genres, but every entry here can include everything from romance to action, so I guess you can say if a movie contains one of these five things, I’m watching it.
