The Uninvited Movie Review

I am not a fan of horror movies. I do not understand why anyone would want to watch something that will scare the heck out of them and give them sleepless nights other than being curious about the whole thing. Well in my case, my boo likes horror movies so I usually end up accompanying her. Our latest foray into the realm of horror movies is The Uninvited.

The Uninvited is an American remake of the 2003 South Korean horror movie A Tale of Two Sisters. The Uninvited stars Emily Browning as Anna, a young girl who recently got discharged from a mental institution and went back to living with her writer father Steven Rydell (David Strathairn). Little did she know that her father is now living with her deceased mother's ex nurse, Rachel Summers (Elizabeth Banks). Things started to get creepy and weird when Anna began to see ghostly visions and presences around her.

The Uninvited movie trailer

The Uninvited managed to make my boo scream a little during a cheap scare scene where a ghostly brunette girl crawled out from under the cooking stove. My boo insisted that it was just a shock/surprise scream and The Uninvited is not scary compared to Asian horror movies like The Ring. The Uninvited does have an interesting twist in the end which I will not spoil for you here. You just have to watch The Uninvited to find out:)

All in all The Uninvited is an entertaining movie to watch. My Love For Life movie review rating for The Uninvited: 3/5

Seven Pounds Movie Review

I managed to watch three movies last weekend, two with my boo and one with my cousin. Seven Pounds is one of the two movies that I watched with my boo. Here is my review of Seven Pounds.

When I first saw the trailer of Seven Pounds I thought it was going to be similar to The Pursuit of Happyness. Another drama movie starring Will Smith. But after 20 minutes into Seven Pounds I knew that this is a totally new movie experience. In Seven Pounds, Will Smith stars as Tim Thomas, an aeronautical engineer who fell into despair after he caused a car crash killing seven people including his fiancée Sarah Jenson (Robinne Lee). From then onwards, Tim had set himself on a self sacrificial mission to save seven lives by donating his own organs.

Seven Pounds Movie Trailer

Seven Pounds is full of powerful human emotions. Will Smith does a great job of playing Tim Thomas, a man in despair who thought about dying everyday. And the onscreen romance between him and Emily Posa (Rosario Dawson) is very heart touching (literary as you will need to watch Seven Pounds to find out yourself) and yet saddening in the end. I highly recommend Seven Pounds as a good drama movie which manages to portray powerful human emotions and yet stay realistically close to life.

My Love For Life movie review rating for Seven Pounds: 4/5

I am quite impressed with the quality of this kit. I think it has more than 90% match with its Bandai counterpart. You can do a side by side comparison by opening Dalong's HG Tieren info page and comparing it to this review. Everything is a very close match by appearance. The TT Hongli HG Tieren Ground Type does have tighter joints so you need to exert more force to pose it. One major flaw is that the torso joint connecting the upper body with the lower body is very loose. A slight pull will separate the two apart.

All in all this is a good kit. It costs half of its Bandai counterpart. My Love For Life gundam review rating for TT Hongli HG Tieren Ground Type: 3.5/5

I will do a follow up poseability review on this in the future so stay tuned.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop Movie Review

I watched Paul Blart: Mall Cop with my boo during the weekend. I wasn't expecting much from Paul Blart: Mall Cop and it turned out quite nicely to my surprise. Paul Blart: Mall Cop is an action comedy movie starring Kevin James, Keir O'Donnell and Jayma Mays.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop focuses on Paul Blart(Kevin James) as he tried to enroll in the New Jersey police department but failed at the very end due to his hypoglycemia condition. Thus he took up the position of Mall Cop in the local shopping mall and the main storyline details this timeline. In a nutshell, Paul Blart: Mall Cop centers around how Paul Blart managed to stand up and excel in life despite being overlooked and underestimated by others around him.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop Movie Trailer

Paul Blart: Mall Cop is full of hilarious sequences but it also has the overused "beat up by an overweight lady" scene where Paul Blart is getting trashed around in a Victoria's Secret retail store due to a product shortage. There is also some love chemistry between Paul Blart and Amy(Jayma Mays), who operates a kiosk in the mall selling hair extensions. All in all, Paul Blart: Mall Cop is a fun and entertaining movie to watch.

My Love For Life movie review rating for Paul Blart: Mall Cop: 3.5/5

Bedtime Stories Movie Review

I was looking for a feel good movie to watch with my boo last night and I stumbled upon the DVD of Bedtime Stories. I bought it last month and had forgotten all about it until I saw it in my drawer, still mint in the Speedy shopping bag. Without further delay, I took the disc out from its case and popped it in the DVD player.

Bedtime Stories is a family oriented comedy movie with some fantasy twist added to the main plot. I was surprised to find out that Bedtime Stories is affiliated with Walt Disney Pictures as it is produced by Happy Madison which is Adam Sandler's production company. Previously Happy Madison did not produce any family oriented movies which were suitable for younger audiences and hence Bedtime Stories marks Adam Sandler's first foray in a family oriented movie.

Bedtime Stories Movie Trailer

In Bedtime Stories Adam Sandler stars as a hotel handyman, Skeeter Bronson who is looking forward to become hotel manager based on a promise made by his father Marty (Jonathan Pryce) with the current hotel owner Mr. Nottingham (Richard Griffiths). Without spoiling the main plot of Bedtimes Stories too much, the movie is about how the bedtime stories Skeeter told with the help of his nephew and niece came to be realized in his life. Bedtime Stories is fun to watch and there are a few scenes which just do not make any sense at all.

Watch Bedtime Stories if you are looking for some light hearted family entertainment. My Love For Life movie review rating for Bedtime Stories: 3/5
