Three reasons why you should read my movie reviews…
Radiation Level: San Onofre SHUT DOWN!
Listening To: Le Temps de l’Amour by Francoise Hardy
Most of you know Fallout Girl is reviewing movies. I love my job – I mean who doesn’t like to give their opinion about movies? If you’re not reading them, here’s why you may want to…
1) I judge a film by entertainment value. Many Hollywood news outlets can be snobby, comparing this director’s current film to their last, or if they expected more from such an over-inflated budget, etc. Many also value a film’s box office total over a quality movie experience. I try to give the low down on what to expect for your 12 or 15 bucks. If it wasn’t that entertaining for me but I know your kids or your hubby will love it, I’ll say that too. My reviews are practical and come from the point of view of a woman who loves movies. Period.
2) I love watching sexy men (okay, and women). What this means is, if Taylor Kitsch is looking particularly H-O-T, I’ll mention it. If Ewen McGreggor looks freaky-nerdy instead of freaky-sexy, I’ll let you know. Same with the gals, especially if Jennifer Lawrence’s costumes and eyelashes are FABULOUS!
3) There is a secret code word. In my reviews, I try to be fair and provide an unbiased journalistic commentary. HOWEVER, if I really, really like a movie and as my friend, I think you should race out and see a film, I will end my review with “Enjoy!” That my friends, is the ultimate seal of approval.
So there you go. I had three this week. Would love to know what you thought about:
