Movie Review

All Pictures are courtsey of rottentomatoes.com

Blog by Bethany honkomp

I hope you guys all enjoyed “The Social Network” after I recommended it to you last week! Sadly, this week’s movie doesn’t quite compare, but hey, that’s what my blog is all about. Letting you know about the must see movies and to tell you to stay away from the flops. But on the upside there are a few movies I’m really excited about that are coming up and I want to let you know about in case you haven’t heard of them. Well, let’s

get on with the blog then… The movie I went to see this week was called “Life as We Know It” starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. I thought it was pretty interesting that rottentomatoes.com gave it a pretty poor rating, yet the majority of the audience really liked it. It just goes to show you that you don’t always have to agree with what the big critics think! I gave it about 2.5 stars because it was a cute, heartwarming story, but it’s definitely a chick flick. It’s a typical Katherine Heigl love story. So, as far as the plot of the movie goes I’m sure you could guess the ending just by watching the trailer so I’m not really going to elaborate on it much. She plays the role well and watching Josh Duhamel on the big screen gave me my money’s worth. It has a wide spectrum of happy, sad, and hilarious moments. I definitely wouldn’t discourage anyone from seeing the movie, but maybe just leave your boyfriend at home. For now I’d rather spend my time telling you about some movies that I think are going to be great.

Conviction:

starring Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell and Minnie Driver. A true story about a woman who endures an emotional 18 year period by putting herself through high school, college and law school after her brother was wrongfully sentenced to life in prison. This story is about hope, belief, and the dedication of one woman and how far she’ll go to prove her brothers innocence. Two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank will far exceed expectations, in my opinion. After amazing performances in movies like “Million Dollar Baby”, “Freedom Writers”, and “Boys Don’t Cry” I would definitely say this is going to be a must-see movie! Hits a limited number of theaters October 15, 2010.

Due Date:

starring Robert Downey Jr., Michelle Monaghan, Juliette Lewis and Zach Galifianakis. This movie is sure to have everyone rolling on the floor with laughter and being directed by Todd Phillips (director

of “The Hangover”) I wouldn’t expect anything different. When father-to-be, Robert Downey Jr., is stranded across the US on a ‘no fly list’ he has no choice but to hop into a car with an aspiring actor, which proves to be a crazy and hectic journey in order to reach the birth of his child. So far I think every thing Robert Downey Jr. has done since his comeback has been pretty great. Hits theaters November 5, 2010.

Morning Glory:

Starring Rachel McAdams, Diane Keaton, and Harrison Ford. After being fired as TV producer for a local station Becky Fuller feels as though she has run out of options. She soon lands a job at a less than popular rated TV station and takes the job in hopes of revitalizing it by bringing on a legendary anchor. Nothing happens how she wants it too and soon her life and TV show are unraveling at the seams. This movie has great potential be to be funny, uplifting, and heartfelt with an excellent cast. Hits theaters November 12, 2010.
