What a sad, heart-wrenching movie. I actually read the book before I saw the movie, and to see it on the screen was just too sad for words to even describe. I was crying and sobbing throughout the movie, especially the end. The little boys in this movie were outstanding :) I wanted to leave the theater because it was too much for me :(
First off, congrats to Ben Affleck for such a great production! Truly a better movie! Although, it definitely wasn't the best. "Argo" was an action-packed film about five (possibly six) individuals who were captured, and need some type of "cover" for them to get out of this violent country. Affleck, also starring in this movie, helps save them by pretending to be a film crew, with a script and everything! Alan Arkin played beautifully, and so did John Goodman.
The fact that this movie was based off of a true story is astounding. I did enjoy it, and so did my mother...she said it was one of the best of 2012, but she too didn't think it was Academy Award worthy. Honestly, I'd give this a 4/5, and I really do wish Les Miserables won Best Picture, but over all, good job, Ben Affleck! :)
This production is probably one of the BEST comedies I have ever seen! My dad, who is an extremely hard critic on movies and hardly ever is impressed with comedies, was laughing hysterically in the cinemas! I, too, enjoyed this film, and it seemed as though the whole audience enjoyed it as much as I did, and more! Emma Stone was beautiful in this movie, and the acting was just perfect.
The portrayal of this "good girl gone bad" by Stone was extraordinary, and she was absolutely perfect for this role! It wouldn't have been the same with a different actress! Amanda Bynes was just unbelievable as this hard-core Christian mean girl, and she had me falling out of my seat in laughter. Every time she said, "You're going to burn in hell!" or "Go to hell!" I just has to let out a laugh. It was indescribable of what was going through my mind at the time of this movie!
The entire script, as well as the idea itself was brilliant. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! Whoever wrote this script is obviously fantastic at writing...they made this story not just a teen movie, but a movie for all ages, and people to learn and grow from. This kept me on the edge of my seat, and I fell in love with it. My friends and I watch it almost every single time they come over, and it is great fun that we will never get tired of.
Last thing I'm going to say...The Scarlett Letter part of this movie was so intelligent, I couldn't even believe who would come up with such a witty, smart idea! Finally, this film stands as one of the greatest, most amazing comedy ever! 5 stars!
This movie frightened my jaded brother, but it didn't do it for me! I was actually cracking up in the theater, and the people around me were looking at me with frightened faces. I did in fact enjoy it, and it is probably a lot less stupid than the other three movies, but it still failed to really scare me. At times, when that demon girl or whatever it was popped out, it did give me a scare, but that was it. Everything else, including the effortless acting, was terrible.
Paranormal Activity was a failed attempt in my opinion, of a horror movie, and I wish luck to those actors and actresses in getting jobs in future productions. This movie was, as I said before, a bit funny, but it would have been different if it was supposed to be a parody of "ghosts" and "demons".
Lastly, I advise those of you who get frightened easily to go rent it on a digital device, and watch it with a friend, but for those of you who are rarely scared, I'd pass if I were you.
Points for trying? I don't know what I was seeing when I was at the theater. I was watching a movie with my eyes, but the idea didn't transfer to my brain until after I left the theater. My friends were covering their faces with hoodies, and they were screaming in terror...the best part is, they're guys! I didn't understand this movie at all...it was a bit frightening, just the terrible computer generating...if you are stupid enough to go see this...I am sincerely sorry.
