A Walk to Remember

A_Walk_to_Remember_movie.jpgOn Tuesday I finished watching A Walk to Remember (2002,PG-13). The portrayal of a character with faith that wasn't compromised was interesting, but ultimately the cheese factor was too heavy. I give it 3 out of 5. From wikipedia:

A Walk to Remember is a 2002 film set in mid-1990s Beaufort, North Carolina, based on the eponymous 1998 novel by Nicholas Sparks. The movie stars pop singer Mandy Moore and Once and Again actor Shane West. The movie was directed by Adam Shankman and produced by Denise DiNovi and Hunt Lowry. The movie was critically panned but was embraced by the respective fanbases of both actors. It began the movie career of Mandy Moore. The movie revolves around the lives of two opposite Beaufort High School teenagers: the daughter of a Baptist minister, Jamie Sullivan (Moore) and a jaded, aimless high school senior, Landon Carter (West).

Sunset Boulevard

200px-SunsetBoulevardfilmposter.jpg Today I finished watching Sunset Boulevard (1950,NR). From Wikipedia:

It stars William Holden as down-on-his-luck screenwriter Joe Gillis, and Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, a faded movie star who entraps the unsuspecting Gillis into her fantasy world in which she dreams of making a triumphant return to the screen.

I was enjoying it quite a bit as the plot thickened but then felt like it lost all of its steam at the end, so I give it 3 out of 5.


spartan.GIFLast night I finished watching Spartan (2004, R) with Val Kilmer. Another decent action flick. It was directed by Mamet who's done several other things I've liked including Heist (2001), State and Main (2000), and Oleanna (1994). I give it 3 out of 5.

Wedding Crashers


Tonight's feature film was Wedding Crashers (R). Not the finest specimen of cinema ever but worth of few chuckles. Owen and Vince are enjoyable. I give it 3 out 5. From

Two committed womanizers spend their weekends crashing weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air. They find themselves at odds with each other when one of them actually falls in love.

The Bourne Supremacy


On Saturday night we watched The Bourne Supremacy (PG-13) with the Lashlees. It was a decent action film. It had sort of been too long since we had seen the first Bourne movie, so we had a little trouble remembering if there was anything that we should have recollect from that film that would have helped us follow this one. I give it an 3 out of 5.
