Critical MeMe

Time spent watching films, even crappy ones, is time well-spent.

    These aren't comments on ALL of the movies through which I've cried, yawned, laughed, and rolled my eyes, but just about everything I've seen since early 2002 is here plus a few from earlier. Post dates reflect my screening & parenthetical dates are the year of US release (aka Oscar eligibility).
    Yeah, a movie review blog isn't very original. But originality is overrated. Just ask Michael Bay.


Get Over It (2001)

Surprisingly charming! This is a rare beast: a romantic non-raunchy comedy aimed squarely at teens -- the closest thing to which I can compare it is "Clueless." I really loved these characters and was rooting for the right couple to get together, just like I was supposed to! Sure, some of the bits don't work (the overly-clumsy hot chick, for example) but Swoosie Kurtz & Ed Begley Jr. as "hip" parents and Martin Short as a fey drama teacher were hysterical.
