There have been so many reruns on TV lately that I’ve been watching a lot of movies during the day and evenings just to have something on. My mom gave me The Bodyguard to watch. She said it was one of my brothers favorite movies and I really liked it. I really did. I fell madly in love with Kevin Costner. But I was at Target and saw The Preachers Wife and Waiting to Exhale for 5 bucks so I picked them up. The Preachers Wife was one of those books that I read for a few chapters and just couldn’t get into it so I put it away. I LOVED that in movie form. Who doesn’t love Denzel? Waiting to Exhale on the other hand was, in my opinion, one of the worst movies of all time. Talk about racist. I couldn’t watch more than 30 minutes of that one.
Then I got The Descendants and I really liked it. I do like George Clooney but this movie shocked me because I had no idea what it was about. It was in a lot of Academy Award categories so I knew it had to be “kinda” okay. Given what his man had to deal with and what he learned in that process really drew me in and I really liked it. I don’t know how anyone could deal with what he was dealt.
I had also really waited with bated breath to see My Week With Marilyn and what a bomb I thought that was. With Michelle Williams up for the Oscar, I thought the movie would be so much better but honestly, I couldn’t force myself to finish that movie either. She did a great job as Marilyn but that movie was a BOMB!
Don’t you hate it when you think you’re going to love something and you don’t? It’s so disappointing.
What are some movies you think should have never been made? What did you just hate and couldn’t even finish watching? On the other hand, what are some of your favorites? Have you seen any “new” movies?
