Titus

titusThis film is an adaptation of the Shakespeare play “Titus Andronicus.” Titus returns victorious from war, only to plant the seeds of future turmoil for himself and his family. Who says revenge is sweet? (IMDb)

So…I don’t know how I feel about this. I wanted to like this so badly. I really did. Great cast, Julie Taymor, Shakespeare, this should have been a home run. Yeah…I thought it was pretentious. Which sucks, because normally I love Julie Taymor. Where I normally love her crazy visuals, I thought they were too much. I think there was a concept beneath all of the craziness that was happening. Why was the little boy there? Is he from the time period? Why does he suddenly become the grandson? Was he always the grandson? Why was the last two minutes just him walking? Just…meh. The acting was fine in my opinion. Except Jessica Lange. She was more than fine. She killed it. But honestly, there’s better Shakespeare adaptations out there…I think I’ll just go watch She’s the Man now.

The Vow

the vowA car accident puts Paige in a coma, and when she wakes up with severe memory loss, her husband Leo works to win her heart again.

So…I liked this…didn’t love it. Ok, what I did like was the story. It was more realistic than most romance movies. Also, Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams were cute together. Plus, they had a good support system actor wise. (Jessica Lange, Sam Neill, Tatiana Maslany, etc.) Here’s the thing though. I felt like these people were archetypes, especially McAdams’ character. Her “married self” was this sculptor, hipster, type, and her “old self” was completely opposite, an uptight future real housewife. And yes, people do change over time, but it was almost like two completely different personalities. It was like I couldn’t believe that one became the other. Also, all of the ladies in this movie cried a LOT. I just wanted to be like come on people, can we get through one conversation without crying? Nothing against the actresses honestly, it was just a lot. So yeah, this is nice, this is cute, but it’s nothing memorable.

5.5/10
