D-Xirable Movie Time! (The Woman In Black, 21 Jump Street, and The Lorax)

Hello my loves!

I'm SO sorry that I haven't been on much lately. I've been SO busy! I promise to get back to everyone as soon as I can! I'm still working on the War and Peace Quote post by the way!

In the meantime, and in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday today, I decided to do some movie reviews. Especially since I saw The Lorax at midnight last night. I went with Sarah N. to see them this week.

The Woman in Black

The first movie review is about The Woman in Black starring Daniel Radcliffe. This movie has been out a while as well but I finally got to see it. This movie was SUPER suspenseful and that is what made this movie scary. You are basically on the edge of your seat waiting for something to jump out and scare you. I jumped several times throughout this movie and Sarah N. did too! In fact, she jumped more than me.

Basically, this movie is about a woman dressed in black who seeks revenge by killing the children of anyone that sees her. She's upset because her sister took her son from her, and she's upset because her son ends up dying (drowning) in her sister's care. Arthur Kipps (played by Daniel Radcliffe) attempts to give her peace by uniting the mother with her child but to no avail. She wants revenge and will never forgive. I HATE the ending of this movie and that's what killed it for me. In a way, it's supposed to be a happy one but I don't see it that way. In the end... No, I won't give it away. I may not have liked the ending but it's totally worth seeing at least once!

21 Jump Street

The second movie review is on 21 Jump Street starring the SEXY Channing Tatum and funny Jonah Hill. Yes, it doesn't come out until March 16 and I've already seen it! I got 2 tickets to an advance screening of it and invited Sarah N. to see it with me since she's always letting me see movies for free with her. The advance screening was yesterday at 7:30 pm. We got there early hoping to be towards the front of the line but the line was pretty long when we go there, and we got there around 6:15 pm.

This movie was WELL worth the wait! This movie is SO AMAZING and SO AWESOME! I'm not kidding you, this movie is HILARIOUS! It's like one of my favorite comedy movies now! I laughed SO hard and SO much! Sarah N. laughed a lot as well! Channing Tatum is so funny! He has great comedic timing, and the back-and-forth between Jonah Hill and him is perfect! They definitely have comedic chemistry and they play off of each other VERY well!

I won't give too much of the movie away but it's basically about two cops going undercover as high school students to find a drug supplier. Jenko (played by Channing) was popular in high school and Schmidt, (played by Jonah) was a nerd in high school. But things change when they go back to high school the second time around. They weren't friends in high school but they become friends during police training. Will they remain friends as they go back to high school?...

Plus, there's a VERY HOT surprise cameo that made all of the ladies (including me) in the screening clap and scream! I plan on seeing this movie again! Trust me, it's that good! And I DEFINITELY recommend this movie to anyone and everyone that's of age (this movie is rated R)! It's SO funny!

Grammy Norma

The third movie review is on The Lorax. The Lorax is a VERY cute movie. I liked it a lot. First, it's important that movie-goers understand that The Lorax (voiced by Danny DeVito) and The Once-ler (voiced by Ed Helms) are the main characters of this story, and not Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) and Audrey (voiced by Taylor Swift). I believe that the trailer is deceiving when it comes to that. Especially, for those (like me) who haven't read the story...

Other than that, this movie is so cute and very family oriented! This movie is about Ted's search for a real tree to impress Audrey. Danny Devito is so funny as The Lorax, Zac Efron is so adorable as Ted, and Betty White is awesome voicing Grammy Norma! This story sends out a great message. Oh, and in my opinion, it's totally worth seeing in 3-D! The setting of this story is so beautiful and it pops in 3-D. The singing fishes are so cute in this movie and the little bears are too! This movie is EXTREMELY cute! I definitely recommend this movie to children and to all of those that are young at heart!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! :)

These are just my opinions and my reviews of these movies. If you disagree with them, that's okay. We are all entitled to our opinions.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Love always,

  9. I've only seen woman in black so i can't talk about the other two movies.To be honest i disagree with your review about women in black, although my best friend would probably 100% agree with you.
    Since both me and my best friend are huge fans of HP we wanted to see Daniel doing something different than playing HP so we went to see it, i expected not a horror movie but one that would at least keep me on the edge of my seat, and keep me trying to guess what's going to happen next. and well it didn't happen! my friend acted the same way you did, but the movie kind of bored me to death.
    Although they had great sound and light effects in order to make us jump from our seat, some things really disappointed me:
    1 the village people and their behavior, i understand that these people didn't want strangers but they acted too quirky for me, nor their actions/behavior, nor the actions of their children lured me into an anxious, seating on the edge of my seat phase. they didn't make me feel sorry for them, their presence was pushed into a few moments and it felt rushed and quite unecessery.
    2 it wasn't as dramatical i expected it to be, i expected a combination of scary, dramatical, heart-wrenching scenes and i didn't get it.
    3 the pace was so slow that i nearly fell asleep.
    come on people keep me on the edge of my seat, make me be scared, cry, shake from fear/anxiety etc.
    things i liked though were
    1 the story of Sam if i correctly remember his name and his wife, and their child. it got me feel sorry for him and her.
    2 the end was amazing for me, at first i didn't get it but then i saw the beauty of it. it wasn't happy, it was bittersweet and those are the greatest kind of ending scenes for me, because they make you keep going back and thinking of what happened, happy endings leave you satisfied but you forget of them, sad/tragical endings make you feel sad, but bittersweet ones always stay inside you and never leave you.
    at least that happens to me
    i loved the ending, it was the perfect end.
    and you may ask why?
    i don't want to spoil anything
    but did you see the look on his face? it was the first and only time he smiled in the entire movie.
    he was miserable and he wanted a way out, he wouldn't go back to normal life, ever. some people just don't go back. maybe that was his salvation.

    1. I respect your review of "The Woman in Black". Why? Because it's your opinion and because you wrote pros and cons of the movie! I believe that the best reviews always include positive things with the negative!
      But I'll stick by mines and I'm glad that your best friend would probably 100% agree with me though! :)
      I'm so sorry that the movie kind of bored you to death.
      So let me respond to your review!
      I agree with you thoughts on the village people and their behavior. It was really weird!
      The pace was a little slow but the story line kept me interested in the movie.
      Yes, I felt sorry for Arthur (not Sam), his wife, and their son.
      The end was just wasn't amazing for me. I saw the beauty in it as well but I prefer happy endings when I sit and watch a movie that long! But I do see what you are saying! It was the first and only time he smiled in the entire movie. But if he wanted a way out, he should have taken it sooner. He did too much to try to prevent the ending to me. That's why I didn't like it.
      But I do respect your review or I wouldn't have posted it, LOL! :)

    2. heheh thanks for posting it then, i always write pros and cons because i always want to justify my opinion.
      now that you mention that, hmmm you are right, he went a long way to end up the way he ended up, maybe he had to be saved. i still believe what i believe of course but i see your point of view.

  16. Hi darling, hope you had a good weekend! You always do the best movie reviews, and I like that your choice in movies are varied and not just one genre. The 'woman in black' sounds chilling, but I like a good thriller. '21 jump street' - Channing Tatum, enough said, he is too handsome! The Lorax sounds sooo cute!
