Movie Reviews: Cinderella + Christmas Vacation + Love And Mercy + 9 others

Cinderella (2015)
This live-action tale has Lily James, ugly dresses, a nasty stepmother, empty glamour and a big poufy dress. This was self-regarding puerility with bad VFX, an exploding pumpkin and a tacky carriage.

Best Lines:
“Mildly intrigued.”

“I can’t drive! I’m a goose!”

“I am her mother.”
“You have never been.”

“I forgive you.”

~
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)
Randy Quaid, Diane Ladd, Doris Roberts and Juliette Lewis star in this mess. There are animated opening credits, Chevy Chase being sexist and dispensing life advice and this was not amiable. Chase has shallow cynical nihilistic rage as norms break down. This was potentially tedious and really bad. The Griswolds have strained enthusiasm for Christmas due to the vile Chase. This has dated hair and clothes and Chase is a creepy sexist who causes ill feeling.

Best Line:
“Bend over and I’ll show you.”

~
Love And Mercy (2014)
Paul Dano mumbles and there is no real connection in this Beach Boys movie. This was not glorious. John Cusack pops up and is hypersentimental. This has no skills or capacity to entertain. This was not a joyful surprise.

Best Line:
“That’s ego stuff.”

~
Mildred Pierce (1945)
A Joan Crawford melodrama in which she glamorously endures a maelstrom of drama.

Best Line:
“I’m not smart that way.”

~
The Rugrats Movie (1999)
These brats are personae non grata.

~
Apocalypto (2006)
Weird.

~
Battle Royale (2000)
Okay.

~
Hot Fuzz (2007)
Boring.

~
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Okay.

~
Young Frankenstein (1974)
Okay.

~
Moulin Rogue! (2001)
Naff.

~
Casino Royale (2006)
Boring.
