Flash Movie Review: Movie 43

It does not take long after perusing my reviews to notice movies mean a lot to me. Whether on a physical, emotional or cerebral level; there is some kind of connection made between me and the movie. From several of the comments left, there is an appreciation to the personal relationship that a film forms with me. That is one of the wonderful aspects of watching a movie. The way it can trigger a memory, make me think, cause me to burst out laughing; I love the way a movie can take me away so easily. This is why I am so thrilled to say there was absolutely no connection between me and this worthless, offensive comedy. To say I was stunned by the tasteless subject matters would be an understatement. After sitting through this movie, despite several people walking out, I felt every actor and actress should come out publicly with an apology. The movie consisted of several short films that were loosely connected, each one vulgar and tasteless. The cast is more than I can list here, but there are a few that stood out. Let me start with Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables, The Prestige) and Naomi Watts (The Impossible, 21 Grams). These two have been nominated for best actor and actress in this year’s Oscars. I want to know how they can walk the red carpet, knowing what they did in this dreadful piece of garbage. If Halle Berry (Cloud Atlas, X-Men franchise) was concerned she would never live down her role in Catwoman, she won’t have to worry about that anymore. Let me just say she reached a new low when she was mixing guacamole with her breast during her film segment. Add in Richard Gere, Liv Schreiber, Greg Kinnear and Kate Winslet; did all of these movie stars owe someone a huge favor? I could go on and on, but let me end on a positive note. This movie has earned a special place on my movie review site:  it is the first film to receive a single star from me. I would have given it a zero; but when I started this site, I decided to make 1 star my lowest rating. Obscene and vulgar language in trailer.

From a long line of movie afficionados, one brother was the #1 renter of movies in the country with Blockbuster, I am following in the same traditions that came before me. To balance out the long hours seated in dark movie theaters, I also teach yoga and cycling. For the past 3 years, I have correctly picked the major Oscar winners... so join me as we explore the wonder of movies and search for that perfect 4 star movie.

  1. Looks like total trash. Me thinks ill skip this one!

  2. Glad you saved me the trouble of watching it!

  3. Yet another awful review! The film’s awful, i mean, not the review 🙂 If there’s one good thing that comes out of films like this, it’s that we appreciate the good ones even more!

  4. You’re a brave man for watching this. I don’t think I could handle it..

  5. This is an awesome blog.

  6. I was actually scared you were going to say you liked it until the 6th sentence. Honestly, that was horror-level suspense in your review.

  7. Sounds like they all went for a pay day. I like your movie reviewing raisin d’etre.

  8. Good job on the review. Just seeing the trailer for this film was enough for me not to watch it. I’m rather sorry you had to endure it but we wouldn’t have had this great review if you hadn’t. So thank you for doing what I didn’t have the courage to. =)

  9. one star, this film isnt doing well at all is it. pretty widespread critical bashing. sorry it did not connect with you as films normally do. a nice, hilarious and personal review.

  10. Not one good review yet haha, damn funny reviews though 😀

  11. Haha I can’t believe you watched this. Although, I think I’ll give it a watch when it appears online – just because it looks so bad!

  12. Wow, that’s definitely unexpected with those names. Glad you couldn’t relate to this one.

    This may be an odd place to add this additional note, but I thought I’d share something of value. I saw a movie this weekend that hasn’t had wide distribution, but I HIGHLY recommend it if it isn’t already in your cue – Any Day Now:


  13. Well, you deserve an award or something for even taking the time to write about it, so the rest of us can make sure we won’t need to pass within a mile of the movie theater showing it.
    Just imagine how many great screenplays ended up in the garbage bins of some well-heeled movie executive, so this monumental piece of rubish could get made. Well well. We’re preaching to the bleachers here, aren’t we? all the best. W.
