The Movie Maven is back with a slew of new releases… Now, I know that this is a tad cough… cough… Late, but our Maven had things to do and missed her deadline… God bless her… We can forgive her right guys? Next time there will be a public flogging but you know other than that we here at MTF are a flexible bunch.
Anyway, check out the Mavens recaps of A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas, Anonymous, and What’s Your Number! After the jump!
A bunch of new movies to watch this weekend and I am excited to share my reviews with you and my little rant about what I think about the Twilight series. Let me know what you guys think and if you have seen any of these movies let me know what you tell me what you thought of them!
New on DVD
Breaking Dawn Part 1 – Ughh… I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and the thing I love about the Harry Potter movies is that they spare no expense making every movie incredibly amazing and just as good as the books. I have read the Twilight books and thought they were good so naturally I was excited about these movies. However I think they went in the total opposite direction as the Harry Potter movies, the cast is awful, Kristen Stuart and Taylor Lautner I have to say are terrible actors and the special effects look ridiculous. Breaking Dawn Part 1 consists of a very long and stupid voice over for a conversation between the wolves. Any fan of the books is kind of obligated to see these movies though, right?
Anonymous – This was a good movie but be sure you have the patience to sit down and really pay attention. In the first 20-30 minutes a lot of characters and storylines are introduced and you can be quickly lost for the rest of the movie if you aren’t actively watching.
A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas – This movie is of course as ridiculous as all the others. It contains cheesy 3-D things that jump out at you which is pretty pointless if you are watching it as I did in 2-D
New at Redbox
What’s Your Number – Predictable but cute movie starring Anna Farris and Chris Evans. It kind of has the How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days feel. I think this is the perfect movie to watch cuddled up with a cheap glass of wine.
