Movies- July 2011

Last month was a good month! We were super busy doing a lot of things.. which will be revealed in a later blog entry. We tons of fun though.

Hitch (2005)
Watched on: 10 Jul 2011
Rated: PG-13
Three actors: Will Smith, Eva Mendes, Kevin James
Reaction: Jilleun– I love this movie, it’s definitely a “classic” to me. We mostly watched it so that we could see all the different places in New York we went to that was also in the movie.
Kelvin– This is a pretty good movie. I think Will Smith is in a number of excellent movies, and he does a great job in all of them. The movie has an upbeat message and is really pretty funny. I don’t know if I would call it a “chick flick” but if it is, it’s a good one.
Rating- 5/5

Larry Crowne (2011)
Watched on: 11 Jul 2011
Rated: PG-13
Three actors: Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Reaction: Jilleun– I really like this movie because it just seemed honest.  Real people go through the same thing every day. It wasn’t a movie that you needed to see in the theater and it was a bit slower, although I was delightfully entertained. It didn’t hurt that I thought all the actors were great, I LOVE Tom Hanks.
Kelvin– Good, honest movie. I don’t know if it did very well in the box office, but who cares. It told a pretty good story. I don’t know how much I liked the chemistry between Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, but it worked enough to be convincing. Get it from Netflix, I don’t know if it’s good enough to purchase, but everyone has their opinions.
Rating- 4/5

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)
Watched on: 16 Jul 2011
Rated: PG-13
Three actors: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint
Reaction: Jilleun– Awesome. That is all.
Kelvin– Good movie. Wraps up the story nicely. Part 1 was better, in my opinion, but that shouldn’t stop you from seeing it.
Rating- 5/5

Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
Watched on: 23 Jul 2011
Rated: PG
Three actors: George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray
Reaction: Jilleun– This was quirkier and actually more funny than I expected. I usually can’t get into cartoons or more childlike movies, but this one I thought was great. I think everyone should see it at least once.
Kelvin– Weird… nothing was wrong with the (voice) acting really.. it was just kind of a strange story mixed with some really odd characters. I’m glad I didn’t see it in the theater, which would have been a waste. It was good enough to get from Netflix and see once. I doubt I’ll watch it again.
Rating- 3/5

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)
Watched on: 29 July 2011
Rated: PG-13
Three actors: Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore
Reaction: Jilleun– Crazy, Stupid, Love is hilarious! It was a bit dirtier than I expected…but still it was sooo funny. It was a bit like Easy A or Date Night humor. Super entertaining, so fun to watch, loved the story, just hilarious.
Kelvin– This is not a chick flick at all. This is just a comedy. I’ll equate it somewhat to Date Night (with Steve Carrell) but much more funny. This is the first movie that I’ve cried in for a looooong time. I cried because I was laughing so hard, not because it was emotional. Oh, and it has Emma Stone aaaaaand she’s pretty cute.
Rating- 5/5

Life as We Know It (2010)
Watched on: 31 Jul 2011
Rated: PG-13
Three actors: Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Josh Lucas
Reaction: Jilleun– This was funny, and cute. It was a little predictable but overall enjoyable.
Kelvin– Pretty predictable, I hate that about some movies. It was a chick flick that I would have veto’d if I knew what I was getting myself in to. Plus, listening to a crying baby for an hour and a half isn’t exactly what I want to see in a movie.
Rating- 3/5
