VIDEO: MOVIES: REVIEW: Not Another Not Another Movie (2011)

Clint/Carolyn: 2.4/5 stars, 5/10.
Native ratings: 2.2/5 stars Netflix, 2.8/10 IMDB.
We’re among the 33% of that gave this a 5 or higher.
The median IMDB rating is 2/10.
Yeah. Ouch.

We went in this expecting something “bad”, and indeed that was what we got. It wasn’t completely terrible, and it was somewhat ok to see some of the movies they spoofed.

But most of this movie wasn’t spoofing specific movies. It was spoofing the process of making spoof movies.

It had this stupid plot revolving around a production assistant stumbling into the job of having to direct a spoof movie. All the meanwhile he has this girl who’s just inappropriately hot for him, making the movie even more unbelievable than it already was.

But it was a comedy, so… It did have its moments.
Just not many.
And not enough.
I fell asleep and barely cared.

VIDEO: MOVIES: REVIEW: Supernatural Activity (2012)

Carolyn: 2.4/5 stars, 5/10.
Clint: 2.4/5 stars, 5/10 (mostly deferring to Carolyn’s rating here).
Native ratings: 2.4/5 stars Netflix, 2.9/10 IMDB.

Review by Carolyn: This was alright.  It started off slow, and didn’t really pick up that much.  However, it did get slightly more funny near the end, but not enough to redeem itself.  I enjoyed the characterizations, but the execution wasn’t that great.

We both thought of the movie Grave Encounters when they were talking about how the show is faked.  That movie was better than this one.

Speaking of the ending, it was confusing.  Clint tried to ask me to explain it to him.  The ending made about 57% sense to me, and my understanding wasn’t enough to be able to explain it to Clint.  Basically, there was some confusion about  different hairstyles (I’ll just leave it at that…).  I was like “It wasn’t that good, and it didn’t make that much sense.  How am I supposed to explain an ending to a movie that wasn’t that good?”

Clint’s thoughts: I had a rut of movies I didn’t remember very well after watching, and this was one of them. Just not that great. Mildly entertaining at best.
