Be Kind, Rewind

WOW, worst movie ever? Maybe not, but definitely one of the worst movies I've personally ever gone to see at a movie theater. And that might be an understatement. I walked into the movie theater undecided about what I wanted to watch.

Yea I go to the movies by myself occasionally. It's fun, you should try it sometime.

Anyway, like I said, I walked in not really knowing what I wanted to watch. I thought about watching Vantage Point. Then I wanted to watch Cloverfield but changed my mind also, and when I couldn't make up my mind, I was like, screw it, I'm watching Juno again! But I'd already watched that twice. (Great movie. I think I'm in love with Ellen Page).

So I finally settled on Be Kind, Rewind. Why? I have no idea. I didn't even find the trailers on tv funny, but I went with it anyway. I've never been a fan of Jack Black, and still aren't after this movie. Without ruining the plot, the movie was just...well boring. Sure it had a couple of laugh out loud moments, (two that I can recall) but overall it was just a drag to watch. So much so that I literally fell asleep for like 20 minutes. When I woke up, I had no trouble knowing what had transpired during my nap because the story is just so predictable.

Eventually it became too dull to keep watching so I walked out with like 30 minutes left. It's not like those last thirty minutes were going to change my mind. And even though I was plot committed, I decided to fold. LOL, see what I did there?

Riiiight so, yea the funny thing is the movie has been generally well received by the public and so far it's accumulated a 69% fresh rating at

I don't care what Rotten Tomatoes says...I should have gone to see Juno a 3rd time.
