Trespass

2011Trespass

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman, Cam Gigandet, Liana Liberato

Trespass, my first movie for 2012… what a bomb.

This time it wasn’t just a crappy script, it was also crappy acting. I felt like they had pulled the gunmen off the street and said ‘here, act’ and let them do whatever. Horrible, horrible, horrible. And what gunman brings his coked up girlfriend along to a home invasion? I mean really, who does that?!

Nicole Kidman’s performance was almost unbearable. I have never seen her acting so… half-assed. Usually if her movies suck it’s because of a bad script or bad directing, this time, there was that and bad acting. What came over her?! Bad Nicole! Bad, bad, bad!

Nic Cage… Well, you either love him or you hate him. I personally love him. He’s pretty consistent in his rolls so I know what to expect going in. I think the last time he really rocked the silver screen was in 2009 in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans. Now that was the Nic Cage we all would love to see every time.

Anyway, unless you want to watch a movie with crappy acting and approximately 85 minutes of continual screaming I don’t recommend Trespass… at all… nope… thumbs are way down…

There aren’t even any good explosions…

Just Go With It

2011

Starring: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Brooklyn Decker, Nicole Kidman

Pretty good movie, even with Jennifer Aniston in it. I’m not much of a fan, she’s just not all that special.

Now that I know who Brooklyn Decker is I still don’t care. Just another overly pretty face that everyone’s making a stink about. Meh.

This rom-com isn’t mushy to the point of annoyance, it’s actually quite funny. Even if you can’t stand Adam Sandler because of his potty humor or whatnot, you should give this movie a whirl. I was surprised and how clean he kept it, like in Spanglish. He was funny and not offensive.

Holy Crap can Nicole Kidman play an uppity snot! She was born to play that type of role, she has just the right… I don’t know, attitude?

Sandler and Aniston had good on screen chemistry which is a good thing. I think I’d watch this movie again. I’ll give it two paws up.

Rabbit Hole

2010

Starring: Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart and Dianne Wiest

This is very much a drama, and very hard to watch at times. I did find this a good movie despite the somewhat depressing subject matter.

Nicole Kidman played an excellent bereaved mother. She seems to have that air about her to play those kinds of parts.

Aaron Eckhart plays the father who hides his pain from the loss of their child. While his patience is put to the test with his wife’s fixations and her lack of coming to terms with the fact that their child is truly gone.
