More movie reviews

Home of the Brave -- movie review in a different form, shall we?

[x] movie had Christina Ricci listed 4th but she was on screen for 2 minutes..........
[x] dialogue worse than Hemingway's.
[x] I don't understand why guys love Jessica Biel.
[x] Christina Ricci is sexy and exudes intelligence.
[ ] movie respected veterans.
[ ] I finished the movie.

The Final Season -- My guess is that movie critics hated this movie about a small-town high school team. I liked it. It wasn't phenomenal (wooden characters, predictable plot lines), but mark me down as someone who likes feel-good movies about sports. I'd watch it again. And Rachel Leigh Cook is cute in a business suit. Most girls are.

After Sex -- I probably should've realized that this movie was a series of vignettes of...post-coital couples. Some of them were well-done, others yawners. The first two actresses somehow both looked like Rachel McAdams on screen. Score points there.. And Emmanuelle Chiriqui is a great actress. Other than that, the fast forward button got used frequently.

Blow Dry -- If I recall correctly, I saw this movie in theaters a few months after 9/11 with some friends at Rice. This movie ranges from over-the-top satire to feel-good sappiness; in other words, it was a good movie to see at the time. I recall that we came to the cinema to watch something else, but it was sold out, so I talked folks into Blow Dry. Believe it or not, I don't think I knew at the time it had Rachael Leigh Cook in it.

I also don't understand the fascination with Jessica Biel. Chriqui (oh crap, I can't spell her first OR last name) was the only good thing about You Can't Mess with the Zohan.

Funny enough, that's next on my list to watch and review.

I know it's very difficult to figure out how I pick movies.
