MOVIE REVIEW: TANGLED (Nathan Greno, Byron Howard, 2010)

I initially wasn’t a fan of this Rapunzel retelling but another viewing made me really like it. It hewed closely to the typical Disney classic and even the songs were good and not annoying.

Inasmuch as I love 3D animation, nothing can still beat the traditional 2D. Oh, and don’t get me started on the lantern scene.

Rating: 4/5

MOVIE REVIEW: LITTLE FOCKERS (Paul Weitz, 2010)

This movie was just downright embarrassing. An all-star cast of funny men and women with nary a genuine laugh-out-loud moment? They were obviously just milking the cow (or cat) and I hope Robert De Niro was paid well enough for him not to do another disaster of this kind. The movie was filled with infantile poop and barf jokes that the audience would rightfully feel nauseated.

Definitely one of the worst of 2010.

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

MOVIE REVIEW: BLACK SWAN (Darren Aronofsky, 2010)

I have to admit that I wasn’t too impressed when I initially saw this movie. I just didn’t buy the whole psychological thriller meets high camp meets horror movie. I wasn’t even rooting for Natalie Portman to win the Best Actress Oscar.

Repeated viewings definitely changed my perception. I now love every minute of this film, every detail that went in each scene, and of course the excellent performance of Portman.

It was indeed perfect.

Rating: 5/5
