5-Word 365 #235 – Flakes

Is this really a thing in the US? Restaurants that serve nothing but breakfast cereal? I bet they won’t have Weetabix.

5-Word 365 #208 – Garden State

Here’s another flick that has been sitting in my DVD library for years, bought on a whim and filed away, forgotten and unwatched. Maybe it should have stayed that way. Today’s review is somewhat shorter than most, since I have decided to temporarily subscribe to the theory of “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”. Well, aside from the strict interpretation of “anything at all”.

My Stepmother Is An Alien

Hey, guys. Justin here from Today I Watched a Movie. I basically begged Ryan to let me do a guest post, so here we are!

I just obtained a copy of My Stepmother is an Alien, and thought it would fit in perfectly with the crazy things Ryan’s always coming up with to review. I had never heard of it before today, and after watching it, let’s just say I’m glad I didn’t have to pay for it. Oops! I’m almost forgetting my five words!

5-Word 365 #167 – Ella Enchanted

I may have mentioned this once or twice before, but I am a soppy git. I don’t like feeling manipulated, but anything genuinely romantic just gets me all misty. A friend of mine sent me a YouTube clip today where a guy got all his friends and family to do a musical number in the street to help him propose to his girlfriend, and watching it sort of reminded me of the opening credit sequence from Get Over It (only with a happier ending). I’ve seen that film too many times to write about it here in this project. Luckily for me though, the director Tommy O’Haver followed it up with an adaptation of a book that was an updated version of Cinderella. It’s sort of for kids, and it’s on Lovefilm streaming. Ha! You all thought this was just going to be another random ramble, didn’t you?!

5-Word 365 #150 – Zookeeper

Holy crap! Day 150! Another minor landmark on this road to complete insomnia I am currently embarking on. On a side note, tomorrow is the release of the programme for this year’s Edinburgh Film Festival. Since it will be taking place around the corner from my house, I will be reporting daily from the Fest itself which kicks off in just under three weeks. Until then, I’m going to start looking into some of the bigger and lesser known flicks that will be playing and maybe previewing some of the ones I really want to check out. But first, let’s get this out of the way.

Mamma Mia

Here’s a special bonus treat for all you lovely people: a guest review from a friend of mine, Mr Andy Young, esq. You know how I watch the shitty movies so you don’t have to? Well, he watches the really shitty ones so that I don’t have to. What a guy. Read More
