    To All the Boys I've Loved Before

    ★½

    I want to love it.

    Hell, I would actually settle with just liking it.

    But I have to accept the fact that I hated it.

    The book it's based on, still a favourite... it's just that I'm now forever sad that they decided to make this movie.

    PS: This is Gilmore Girls revival emotional wreck / frustration all over again!

    ★★★★½

    The strength is the script. Just when you think you have it all worked out, the film upgrades itself to another level.

  • The Makeover

    The Makeover

    This Hallmark movie is a perfect example how everything is predictable to a point where you know how things are gonna go just based on its title. The positive thing about The Makeover is that David Walton is tall, handsome, pleasant to look at and that he has big hands, which is apparently important because otherwise I can't justify my decision that lead me to watching this movie.

  • Before I Go to Sleep

    Before I Go to Sleep

    ★★

    Implied as a thriller, Before I Go to Sleep never really thrills you with anything but just slowly and gradually, sometimes even weakly, takes you to the plot twist. Sadly, it's the way the story progresses that makes the twist not as much as twisty but gives you the feeling "oh yeah, that makes sense". It's not a good feeling, not a thrilling one to be exact.

    Kidman does an okay job here, having done much better in the past…
