The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Review

A highly disturbing film. I feel badly criticizing the poor lead character, Lisbeth Salander in the movie because she has clearly had a very hard life, but yuck! She appears as though she would not smell very good at all and I was completely distracted throughout the film by her seemingly non-existent eyebrows. Not for me. However, she does have a gorgeous body.

The Bjurman character– yuck, gross, yuck.

The opening sequence was interesting to look at but unsettling. Knowing absolutely nothing about this movie before I went in, I was very pleased to see that Daniel Craig was the leading man. His eyes can improve any film and he looked terrific in his partially nude scenes. Very nice Daniel, very nice.

The first scene was magical with the beautiful snow falling in the countryside. The home of the character Martin Vanger is spectacular. I would love to live in that house. However, what he has downstairs would be a real buzz kill.










The Devil Inside Review

What garbage! Okay, maybe not total garbage. There was a lovely leading lady – Fernanda Andrade (they should have put her on the movie poster; the current one is revolting). Also, there was some beautiful footage of Italy. However, there are plenty of movies which have lovely ladies and fabulous footage of Italy. DO NOT waste your money on this trash.

Real Steel Review

My, my, my. It was fantastic to see Hugh Jackman in a movie again. A real movie. Not some sort of sill X-Men film where he has ridiculous facial hair. He is a dream. So, so, so gorgeous. I have to say that he looked like he would have been a bit smelly at times, however, I would take a sweaty Hugh Jackman over a squeaky-clean Mark Ruffalo any day. Hugh’s love interest Evangeline Lilly is smoking hot as well so there is great eye-candy in this film for everyone.

There are a couple of downsides to the film. Hugh Jackman’s character, Charlie Kenton, basically lives in a motor-home of sorts, which I’m assuming does not have proper grooming facilities – this is clearly an issue. Also, some of the robots are quite rusty and grubby looking. Also, the gym that Charlie goes to is quite run-down.

I would like to live in this movie just to be able to be with and look at Charlie Kenton everyday and I love boxing. I would just need to have him come to my place which would be clean and have a shower and a bathtub.

The Help Review

A very inspiring movie and a great story of friendship and determination. However, I do not review based on such things.
Hated most of the dresses. Loved a couple of them. Emma Stone is absolutely gorgeous. Kerry Barden and Paul Schnee could have cast a more attractive love interest for her. I would not want to live in this movie – I do not have that much strength of character or fortitude.
