It's hard to like a movie when you've read the book and fangirled over it. However, I think that this movie was a good conclusion to the Harry Potter movie franchise.
However, the reason I bumped the rating down from 5 stars to 4 would be because of THE ENDING. I don't know about you, but that's not the way I would have reacted. If you watch this movie, you'll know what I'm talking about.
Jesus Christ, if you haven't seen this movie at least twice, then you have some good friends. Let me rephrase: my friend makes me watch this every time I go over to her house. No joke. How many times have I seen this? Like fifty.
You may be wondering why I still go to her house, and that is simply because 1)it's not a bad movie and 2) she makes really good tamales.
But seriously, it's adult comedy, and it'll…
There are only two reasons you would watch this:
1) You a very practical masochist.
2) You have been reduced join the cesspit of other screaming Twilight fans.
Seriously. I like the books, even though everyone says they're awful. I mean, they have a certain charm to them. But really.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE QUALITY OF BOOK TO MOVIE MOVIES?
/end caps lock rage.
This Means War could have passed for a feel good corny romance- but it wasn't even that. It was every trope I wanted the burn in the Mayan Apocalypse and more.
Frankly, this was the biggest waste of time I've spent my holiday season doing. I could have been knitting scarves for my grandmother, but NOPE, I just have to watch Reese Witherspoon whining about how she can't decide between two guys.
The basis of the movie is pretty much…
I should have stopped at "From the makers of Paranormal Activity."
This was a waste of my precious money and time on Earth that I could have been using to further human kind.
Most of the movie was just freaking unrealistic (see Dirk Hasselman's review for this- I don't feel like reiterating) and- ugh.
Excuse me as I wash out my eyeballs with Clorox.
I'm embarrassed to say that I saw this.
The acting was crap (Cory Montieth, the dude on Glee, sucked, and kept going in and out of a Texan accent). The film was corny, it didn't end when it should have (I was clapping when there was 20 minutes left) and the main dude isn't even HOT to make up for it!
The only useful thing I learned from this movie was how to do a really loud whistle. Yeah.
