Quick Movie Review

Aquarian Age (2008, Japan) | Rating: 2/5

I believe there was a lot of hype surrounding this movie, mostly on certain LiveJournal communities. Usually, what I have noticed over time, that when there's hype, disappointment is close by to follow. Some examples of this are The Blair Witch Project and The Hulk. Aquarian Age sadly falls into this category of disappointing, full of hype movies. The plot had promise, but the only positive things I noticed about the movie was the pretty boy actors, musical artist cameos by SuG's Takeru and Alice Nine., and the settings for each scene. The acting was decent, the execution of the story was kinda boring, and the special effects were a bit iffy. To top it all off, the ending contributed to the disappointment.

Madea's Big Happy Family (2011, USA) | Rating: 3.5/5

Your typical Tyler Perry "everyone in the family has issues" movie, but it has a slightly different twist. Instead of no good men, we have these annoying women. It's still enjoyable and funny like the rest of his filmography. It has memorable characters and also puts perspective to not take advantage of a good man, because they're hard to find.

Little Fockers (2010, USA) | Rating: 3/5

The third chapter of the battle between Stiller and De Niro. It's not as funny as the previous two movies, but it's still entertaining and comical. Owen Wilson's character seems extra annoying in this one and Jessica Alba's character adds some interesting twists and turns. If you want something light and a little laughter to your day, this is a good movie to watch.

Black Swan (2010, USA) | Rating: 4.5/5

There was a lot of hype about this movie and normally I tend to avoid those types of movies, but this was on my list of things I wanted to see last year and failed to do so. We received it here at my job and I was excited to get on it. It kinda hurt my head trying to follow everything, but it's pretty simple. It has the same structure as Strange Circus with the whole parallel stories intertwining at the end. It was dark, intriguing, and dramatic. It definitely kept my interest and it pushed boundaries. It definitely deserved the praise that it received.
