City Lights

City Lights

I was dreading this one. I disliked Charlie Chaplin’s “Tramp” character since I was a kid. There is something about it that rubbed me the wrong way.

After this movie I grew a liking to it. I can see why this tramp is well loved. It’s still not my cup of tea but it was a pleasant enough 1h27m.

A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire

Very impelling film. Black and white flicks sometimes put me off but I was engaged from the beginning. Vivien Leigh and Marlon Brando do a dynamite job.

Catfish (2010)

It was a displeasure watching this movie. In fact, after about 20 minutes I was fast forwarding most of the time.
In general I refrain from commenting on stuff I don’t like but this film has 81% on Rotten Tomatoes so I need to tell you not to waste you time:

Don’t waste your time.

SPOILEIRS:

It’s a boring, pseudo-documentary film with a lame story arch about this guy that meets a family on Facebook only to discover that they are all made up by this lonely 40 yo woman that lives in some god forsaken middle America town with a two digits IQ husband and his mentally disabled twin sons.

Yeah, you are thinking that the description makes it sound kinda interesting.
It isn’t.
