VIDEO: MOVIE: REVIEW: My Last Five Girlfriends (2009)

3.6/5 stars, 7.6/10 from both of us
Native rating: 2.7/5 stars Netflix, 5.7/10 stars IMDB.

It was a bit of a chick flick — watching this guy go through 5 women. Relationships, yada yada….

But it had enough quirkiness — including gratuitous visual quirkiness to the point of directorial masturbation [not literally] — to keep interest going.

The comedy ended, but not as early as usual, and the quirkiness survived.

It was kind of surreal — a suicide dream sequence — a lot more visual-driven than I would have expected.

The moral of the story? Life goes on. Surprising that this is a necessary message, but it is.

[And by the way… The first 4 girls were progressively less hot, until the black chick {Naomie Harris} at the end who landed smack dab in the middle of the hotness of the other 4 girls.]

VIDEO: MOVIE: REVIEW: Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012)

Clint/Carolyn/Parthena: 4/5 stars.
Clint/Carolyn: 8/10.
Parthena: 7/10.
Native ratings: Netflix: 3.2/5 stars, IDMB: 6.7/10.

This would have been a 5-star movie if it had kept up with the comedy as strongly in the 2nd hour as it did in the first. But like a lot of romantic comedy movies, the comedy stops dead about halfway through, never to be revived.

It was still a great premise, though… Providing somewhat unique situations. The writer is the same writer as Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist (2008), and while I actually rated this one ever-so-slightly higher… I think I enjoyed Nick & Norah more.

If the 2nd half had stayed as funny and ridiculous as the 1st, this would have blown Nick & Norah away. But it didn’t. Still good though.

This actually reminded me of The Sure Thing with John Cusack.

And oh… VERY DARK. SO DARK FOR A COMEDY. JESUS.
