If you haven’t checked out The List of Movies That Made Going to the Movies Suck over at Mike’s blog, there are some really interesting essays going up daily all month long. You can find my essay on IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT, which kicked off The List, here. Now, onto the reviews.
The Back-Up Plan (2 stars): if you are aching /to see Alex O’Loughlin / watch Moonlight instead
Stuntmen (3 stars): an amusing look / at the stuntman industry / mockumentary style
Orange County (3½ stars): the transition from / high school to college is hard / but also funny
The Princess Bride (5 stars): truly a classic / epic comedic romance / with awesome swordfights
Singles (3½ stars): from Cameron Crowe / a film about single life / and finding the one
Shades of Ray (3½ stars): a sweet indie film / an identity crisis / both funny and real
Iron Man (3½ stars): excellent relaunch / to a franchise and career / more RDJ please
Iron Man 2 (3½ stars): the sequel lives up / to my expectations and / perhaps exceeds them
And last but not least, don’t forget to watch Chuck, (catch up online!) because I don’t want it to get cancelled, because then I’ll have nothing to live for on Mondays (8/7 Central on NBC, folks!).
