Husband and wife, mother and father, and now Buntology film critics? Check out the first installment of Rod and Rochelle’s latest feature, in which they watch and review obscure Netflix movies so you don’t have to.
ANNIE: First I would like to say that I am a huge Harry Potter fan (I mean, I did take a college credit English class called “The Literary Traditions of Harry Potter”). Secondly, I’ve never written a movie review before so I might be
way off track, but Lauren told me not to be stifled so I won’t be.
LAUREN: Annie and I attended the midnight showing of “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” at Regal Cinema late Tuesday night. We arrived around 10:15 p.m. and the theater was already packed.
ANNIE: The evening was enjoyable, and Lauren with her cape and wand was quite the entertainment-– “you’re a wizard Harry!” I was wearing my Hufflepuff colors (yellow and black) because honestly, I would so be in Hufflepuff.
Buntology columnist Will Cimino, and our movie guy, Matt Gosciminski, recently took turns reviewing Watchmen. Will took on the novel (apparently he hasn’t read a book since fourth grade), and Matt checked out the flick (I’m guessing he’s seen it about five times by now). Click below to read what these two dashing young men had to say.
So the other week I was finally able to get out and see David Fincher’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which I feel like I’ve known about forever. So it was a treat to see it after waiting for so long. In case you aren’t aware of what this movie happens to be about, it follows the title character, played by Brad Pitt, as he is born a wrinkled old dying baby and “ages” into a fit young man, and eventually dies as if he had just come out of the womb.
Overall, this movie was great, though it didn’t live completely up to my expectations.
