Movie Reviews: Til Death Do Us Part + Greta 👎👎

Til Death Do Is Part (2014)

Ty Olsson stars in this entry in the I Married A Psycho genre. The bride gave up her job and now they're moving to a new area.There are ill fitting wedding outfits. This was faintly ludicrous and it borders on the parodic. The groom is so throughly unlikeable. He looks like a roadie for Motley Crue not a doctor!

The larkiness of newly wed life gives way to nonsensical developments and presposterous revelations. There is randomness and folly as the groom is revealed as being darkly psychotic. This was exceedingly dreary.

The groom turns adversarial. There are despicable people. The groom has a sidekick. They harbour dark secrets and malevolent energy. The acting is bad. This was bad.

Greta (2018)

Stephen Rea, Isabelle Huppert and Chloe Grace Moretz star in this Neil Jordan film. A girl returns a lost handbag to an old French lady who isn't nice or helpless. A friendship develops that turns into stalking with revelations of abuse and murder. This was not compelling. It was blandness and an arty version of 'The In Crowd'.

This was uninspiring and disconnected. Causes for concern exist and there are drastic consequnces to befriending an old French woman given to dull suprise acting. Nobody is astute. There is a creeping crisis. This failed to live up to expectations. This was distinctly underwhelming and it was not enduring or fateful. Suspicion is rife and trust is in short supply. There is malice and deception.

This was the worst. There are illusions of accord. There is no civilized dispute. This was absurd and risible. One can't understand what Huppert is saying. Rea puts on a terrible US accent. There is overt nonchalance. This was not potently terrifying and there are persistent and negative effects. Things are not volatile and there are sharp responses and no sense of urgency. The ending is creepy.

Best Lines:

“Where I come from, that's what we do.”

“It'll be fun.”

“Will it?”

“Was meant to be amusing.”
