If I could have rated this movie a 0 I would have but I had to rate it a 1. This movie was like a bad car wreck. It is something you just have to stop and watch for yourself just to see how bad it is and if there is any hope for survival.
Enticement leads to terror when a sexy office temp forms a dangerous fixation on a successful and happily married asset manager. Derek Charles (Idris Elba)(Ummm who is this anyway) is good at his job and all around well liked. He's worked hard to get to the top, and when his workday is finished Derek has the luxury of returning home to his beautiful, jealous, and over whiny wife, Sharon (BeyoncÃƒÂ© Knowles)(Why is she acting), and their healthy newborn child. But Derek's perfect life begins to crumble when sexy new temp worker Lisa (Ali Larter) (Who by the way outshines both Elba and Knowles) goes to work at the office and begins stalking Derek's every move. When Lisa's obsession turns dangerous, Derek and Sharon resort to desperate measures in protecting themselves and their child from her deadly wrath and with that plot alone should have been a pretty decent movie. However, Elba and Knowles do a perfect job of mucking the movie up with awkward performances and overall character immobility. At the end I thought the only victims of this movie, was me, my boyfriend, anyone else that who managed to watch this movie and Ali Larter who obviously owed someone a favor and was duped into taking this movie.
Save yourself the hassle and pain and don't watch this movie, instead watch Donnie Darko or Chumscrubber if you want to get inside the head of a disturbed teenager nixed with the dangers of how society has become complacent with handing out meds to teens to solve the "rebel problem". This movie was terrible. The acting was pretty decent but my major problem was the plot, Which I thought was overdone and poorly done at that. What could have been a decent movie was squashed by a mediocre story that reminded me of Ferris Buller's day off and Chumscrubber's love child.
Naming a film after the main character usually means one of two things: 1) They didn't have any better ideas, which should alert viewers to the potential for further creative bankruptcy; 2) They wanted to reward the screenwriter for thinking up a snappy moniker. The trailers for Charlie Bartlett made it seem like a case of 2. But Charlie Bartlett is actually a deceptively straightforward teen movie. Anton Yelchin ministering to his classmates through amateur psychiatry in the boys' bathroom Yelchin's warm acting style exudes the enthusiasm and vocal mannerisms of a child. Equally as annoying is Kat Dennings as his love interest, a sassy spitfire similar in temperament to her role in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. The older characters don't fare quite so well -- Hope Davis' Mrs. Bartlett is so underwritten, all she can do is contribute aimless loopiness, and Robert Downey Jr., the should-be-cool principal, ends up displaying personality issues far more alarming than those of his students. While the premise is pretty thin -- how could Charlie dispense advice to a whole queue of prospective "patients" without attracting attention? -- the movie's heart is in the right place, wiping out some of its flaws.
One of the better lower tier moves that I have watched lately. Decent acting, decent special effects and a better than average plot makes this a pretty good movie. If I worked for the Sci-Fi Channel I would take notes. This movie proves that if you don't have millions of dollars for effects and acting that you can still make a pretty decent movie.
The movie centers around a group of armed to the teeth militants who take over a super market near closing in Buck Lake Arizona. At first you think that they are just merely going to rob the place but later find out that they are a group of rogue scientist bent on ending an alien infestation that has spread from this very town.
In closing give this movie a chance if you are curious and want a decent watch.
Ummm I fell in love with 500 Days of Summer. First and foremost this was not my pick to go see when me and my bf went to the theaters, but I am glad we did. Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel are brilliant in this romantic comedy that is not your run of the mill romantic comedy. I would suggest this movie to anyone because it has great quality and watchability.
