Heya Aspiring Gurus!
I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting much as of late. I haven’t been feeling that great and I’m already 5 and a half months along in my pregnancy! I’m going to try to post every weekend with two posts. I already have the rest of August’s Wednesday reviews all set to upload. This will be my last post until Wednesday and then hopefully Saturday, if not two on Sunday. I am working on a book review and a luxury pamper night routine. But this is a movie/shows review post, so let’s get to the goods!
I really loved this movie and not just because Jennifer Aniston is the lead role. I liked the whole concept of this movie and the other star cameos was nice as well. She really delivered in her role as a troubled, addicted woman, who doesn’t really care anymore. Then, a guy and his son help her out of the rut her life has become, but it is ultimately up to her to have the courage to move on and keep on living life. This was a sad, emotional movie. Honestly, the best serious role Aniston has ever made and I would like to see her in more roles like this. I rented this movie from Redbox when it first came out, but now you can watch it on Netflix.

I watched this movie over Danielle’s house and even thought it was really long, it was also really good. I really like how all of the sisters interacted. It was all very believable, but the ending was still very shocking to me. I laughed a lot during this movie and thought certain parts were creepy when they were supposed to be romantic. We joked a lot during this movie and I just remembered having a great time.

Paul Blart Mall Cop 2
This movie did not take place in a mall, but a hotel that had a mall section this time. I guess that makes it a bit different, but I would have preferred the mall scene again. I have to say that I didn’t enjoy this one nearly as much as the first ones. The sequels aren’t ever nearly as good though. This one could have been way better, but it really sucked to tell you the truth. I thought it was less funny and more stupid with little to no plot. I’m glad I used this as my free movie at Redbox, otherwise I would have been even more disappointed.

I really enjoyed this movie as well. I just finished watching it yesterday night and it wasn’t what I was expecting. It was so much more. This is not your typical Adam Sandler movie. Again, this is a more serious role for him and it just works. Yes, there is a little disconnect between certain events/points in the movie (unlike Cake), but I still enjoyed the movie. The ending was pretty shocking and I was not expecting it. It made the whole movie have a happy ending though with the impression that things will only go up for Sandler’s character.

Teen Beach 2
This was a cute sequel, but again, not as entertaining as the first. I felt like this one had less plot to it as well, though I still feel like it had a central plot. I love musicals, but I didn’t like these songs as much as in the first movie. I felt like the characters were less real and the ending was very disappointing to me. I wish I would have liked it more, since I loved the first. It just didn’t do it for me. I still liked it though.
