Since I watch movies so much, I figured I would start reviewing them as they come through the pipe. The 3 movies we just watched recently and their ratings:
BEFORE SUNSET: 5 Stars. Sequel to Before Sunrise from 1995 – which I recently saw for the 1st time and gave it 4 stars. I actually liked the sequel better. More emotional. More yearning. And Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy’s chemistry and timing is even more amazing.
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN: 2 Stars. Way too long. A big mess of a plot that did not make sense in many places. Some nice cinematography though.
THE VILLAGE: 3 Stars. Interesting concept – although, not to toot my own horn, I had the major plot twist figured out in like 15 minutes. Really good acting. A bit too long too, and too slowly paced, IMO. But overall, we liked it.
If you are unfamiliar with the Netflix rating system:
5 stars = loved it
4 stars = really liked it
3 stars = liked it
2 stars = didn’t like it
1 star = hated it
