Letterboxd Reviews #1
Hello Readers,
Today I'll be starting a series where I share my Letterboxd reviews (Link to my review page on Letterboxd: https://letterboxd.com/alexobrien/films/reviews/).

Here are 4 reviews that I wrote on Letterboxd:

1. RV; Stars: 
RV is a bad movie. It stars Robin Williams (and I feel sorry for the late actor as he is a good actor and deserves better). This movie is poorly written and the jokes, don't get me started on the jokes. They spent what felt like 10 minutes on ONE poop joke. In the end, the joke wasn't even funny and got a cheap laugh from people who laugh at gross-out humour. The main family are self-aware as they know that they aren't nice people, but it takes them to the last FIFTEEN minutes of this boring generic family "comedy" for them to change as people and become nicer. There is a B-Plot in this movie where a family, that the main characters met on their first night of the trip, are trying to find Bob and Co. and return a laptop. This B-Plot isn't that interesting but at least it was more enjoyable then what happened with the main family. The second family were nice but the main family wanted nothing to do with them as they were a bit weird. A lesson that took majority of the movie for Bob and his family to realise is 'Never Judge a Book by Its Cover'. I just finished watching this movie and all the names I remembered are Bob, Todd, Larry and Garry. I might be incorrect but the names but that shows how forgettable this movie was.
You're probably wondering "You're bashing this movie so much, why did you give it 2 stars and not lower?", well, I give it 2 stars for 2 middle fingers up.

2. Into The Woods; Stars: ½
This review may contain spoilers.
Into The Woods is a terrible Disney movie. It held on to the award for 'Worst Disney Movie' in my eyes for 4 years until A Wrinkle In Time came along snatched it out of its dirty hands.
This movie is very anti-Disney. First of all, SPOILER AHEAD!!! Every. Single. Mother. DIES!!!!!
Second of all, it's just a bad movie. That is partially the opposite of the movies that Disney make.

3. This Is the End; Stars: ½
This Is The End is a hilarious movie. I laughed a lot during this movie. My favourite scene is when they start making sequels to movies they had made before. To quote Dopinder from Deadpool 2 or Kirsten Dunst from Interview with a Vampire: "I want some more.

4. Venom; Stars: ½
Fun and enjoyable. Not as bad as the critics say, not as good as I hoped it would have been. Felt like an hour before Eddie Brock was infected by Venom, the symbiote not poison. A bit predictable in parts. Wish the rating was bumped up from M to MA 15+. Had the SAME opening shot of The Predator. The soundtrack wasn't great. Go watch, you should have fun.

I didn't post for a while and I hope you enjoyed those reviews!
Make sure to let me know if you want to see more of this type of thing.
I'm going to bring out a Halloween Themed Letterboxd Reviews around a week before Halloween 2018.
