Teen Review: 'Sucker Punch'

This review gave me mixed feeling, i don't know if i should watch the movie or not. The reason being the review was mixed. Lidia pretty much said she liked it, but she didn't like it. For every positive comment on the movie there was five negatives. The costumes were nice but there's really no story line. The music was okay but there's no depth. There was a lot of action, but the action was weak. It's almost like she's trying to decide whether she liked it or not, and doesn't really know if it was amazing or stupid. Becasue of this review, now i feel compelled to watch it and figure out what Lidia's saying about the movie. However, because this wasn't a review that said you need to go and watch this movie, i'll wait for it to come out on DVD. I guess what i'm saying is, i don't really know what my opinion is on this review or the movie itself.

Teen Review: 'Exit Through the Gift Shop'

Truthfully, i don't really care for documentries in general. It's usually just some boring "movie" with no entertaining values, the kind of videos teachers show in their class to educate students. In other words, boring. So when i started to read the review and saw the word "documentry" i had to force myself to continue reading the review. Thankfully i did continue reading and after finishing this review i was suprised. This documentry actually sounded interesting because i've seen a lot of rebel art and have always wondered what the story behind it was. According to the review, if i watch the movie i'll find out. I guess i'll be watching the movie in the near future.

Teen Review: 'It's Kind of a Funny Story'

This review has some insightful comments into teen suicide. Jesus Gomez says that it is a big issue, which is somewhat overshadowed by the love side of the story. This is true in many films; directors seem to want to focus more on the love story than the actual big issue teen depression, which can lead to suicide. Why directors do this is probably because no one wants to watch a depressing movie, at least in the film directors view. However, in all honesty maybe if film directors started spending more time on the suicide part, it would raise awareness and show people the signs to watch out for. Maybe it could save lives. Nevertheless, I digress. This review is truly an insightful and interesting review that makes me want to watch the movie, simply to see for myself if the comments about how they overshadow the suicide element by focusing more on the love side of the story are true. It certainly would not be the first film to do this.
