Movies 2010, Week 33

August 29- September 4, 2010
170) Peter and Vandy.  Indie film about the life of a couple.  The guy had a horribly annoying personality.  He was a jerk.  The story was also told over multiple flashbacks.  I spent far too much of the time in confusion... which I hate.  Too many unanswered questions and too much fluidity in the story line.  2.9 stars
171) OutFoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism.  Some ridiculous unqualified stats.  How are you going to attack someone's journalistic practices and use some of the same tactics you accuse him of using?  Silly music.  I don't care who the slant is coming from, I don't like slants.  Infuriating on a variety of levels. 3 stars
172) My Best Friend.  Cute French film about a man who realizes he has no friends, then sets out to find a best friend.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  4.2 stars
173) The Back-up Plan.  Bad.  Bad, bad, bad.  J.Lo is a woman who gets artificially inseminated then meets the man of her dreams.  Insert stereotypical, predictable, overdone and in some cases poorly-acted scenes (ahem, JLo).  2.4 stars
174) The Maid. Chilean film about a maid convinced the family she loves is trying to push her out.  As a result, she goes nuts!  Very engaging.  I enjoyed it a lot, Rashan, not so much.  4 stars
175) The Trials of Darryl Hunt.  Fabulous documentary about the trials of a man wrongly accused of rape and murder and the decades of fighting.  Loved it.  5 stars

The previews to the Back-up Plan looked cute. Standard chic flick or romantic comedy. Too late it's on the way via Netflix.

Bwhahaha! @ poorly-acted scenes (ahem, JLo)

I liked it! It had the standard predictable plot but it was cool!

I liked her clothes in the movie. I'm still obsessed with the Missoni sweater. The slapstick was a little over done. And Anthony Anderson butt-necked Fridays????? Bwhahahahahahahahaha!

Tom Bosley looked like death is a knockin is he 100?? and Alice I was hoping that was make-up to make them appear more aged! Geez!

Totally over dramatic when he threw out that body pillow. Really?? He would've got stabbed!
