The Apartment

I watched it, it was lovely, it has a great unique storyline and is something I’d recommend to all. Can I leave it at that? No? Ok… sorry, I’m just soooo tired!!! Stayed up watching 2001 A Space Odyssey last night then woken up early because everyone thought I had to be awake at 8.

Valentine’s Day

This movie is definitely not on Empire’s Top 500 or anyone’s Top 500 but I saw the trailer about a year ago and really wanted to see it because of the super-awesome-mega cast. I didn’t see it at the cinema because I’m not THAT much of a loser that I’ll see a film called ‘Valentine’s Day’ on my own.

Anyways, it’s a bit long for a romantic comedy but it kind of needs to be because of all the storylines. I’m trying to think of a storyline that they could of cut out but I can see the need for all of them. Yes, its one of those ‘millions of storylines but they all link somehow’ movie. There are a lot of storylines but they all show different aspects of love and relationships which is very challenging to do in a movie but they managed to just about make it work.

  • Like I mentioned before, the cast list was one of the main reasons I wanted to watch this movie. Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher [did you know he has a twin brother! Sorry, random fact], Jessica Alba, Patrick Dempsey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, George Lopez, Hector Elizondo… *takes deep breath*… Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Cater Jenkins, Bryce Robinson, Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner, Eric Dane, Queen Latifar… *almost done*, Shirley MacLaine and Topher Grace [bad photography guy in Spider Man 3]. Yeah.
  • Oooo its so hard to review this without giving stuff away because I think the reason I loved this movie so much is because of the shock value and me pointing and screaming at the TV going “OMG NO WAY!” Erm… Ok, I’m gonna struggle writing a good review without giving stuff away so… erm… lets give it a go.
  • Ok, we have loads of storylines because this film really wants to show all the different aspects of relationship and love. We have the married guy with his non-wife, the ‘perfect’ couple, the sour guy, the sour girl, the old couple, the ‘maybe’ couple, the new couple but one of them has a little secret and the cutest little boy ever with a cutest ever crush! Oh and then there’s the teenage love and you have the one teenage couple who are all over each other but are, in fact, waiting for ‘the right time’ and then you have the other teenage couple who aren’t all over each other but think they’re ready to do the deed [almost wrote dead then, ha!].
  • The old couple are my favourite because they’ve been together for 51 years and are still so madly in love with one another. “The pretty girl was grandma, right?” “The pretty girl IS grandma.” AWWWWWWW!
  • And yes, I found myself going “AWWWWWWW” more than 10 times.

    Being There

    Its slow, has moments of humor and has the weirdest ending. I will probably never watch it again and I don’t think you should too unless you want to waste 2 hours of your life.
