Review: Marry Me

If you’ve never seen Notting Hill (1999), I strongly advise you watch that particular romcom before stepping into a theater– or onto a Peacock (network)– to see Marry Me. The premise is similar but the execution of the Julia Roberts-Hugh Grant classic is sooooo much better. If you’ve already seen Notting Hill (a few dozen times), then you will be forgiven if drawn into the fluffy imitation starring the likeable duo of Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson.

Take This Waltz

Take This Waltz is one of those indies that I kept thinking might have a different sense of pace and was maybe just going to take a bit of breath before it got going, and then it would make the ride worth my time. But sadly, I was wrong. It promises to be a love story, but love is what is missing. Instead there is a lot of weird cutsieness that I guess is supposed to be a good substitute for romance, but ends up being pretty annoying.

Wreck-It Ralph

Yay! A really good family movie that you should be taking the kids to (rather than the not-so-family-friendly movie Fun Size that young‘uns brainwashed by Nickelodeon may be clamoring to see). Wreck-It Ralph is reminiscent of one of my favorite animated movies of all time, Toy Story (1, 2 and 3). Wreck It doesn’t quite rise to TS levels, but it gets pretty darn close – and you don’t have to be a “gamer” to get sucked in.
