As you know, I’ve been sick for the better part of the last 5 days. Since television at its best, really sucks and now is full of “Christmas” cheer… I’ve had the ability to watch a couple of movies. Ugh. Netflix on-demand has been great, though, I’ve chosen horribly. Here’s some movies you should avoid and I didn’t.
Death of a President
From Netflix: This provocative mockumentary imagines the assassination of President George W. Bush and the fallout that follows, including the media’s reaction, the rush to convict an assassin and the machinations of President Cheney
While I thought this would be an interesting movie. It was so detached and the lack of even remotely convincing acting made me turn it off mid-movie. They should be ashamed of themselves. Here’s the trailer…
From Netflix: When a group of ambitious teenage dancers, musicians and actors enter a new semester at New York’s prestigious High School of Performing Arts, they try to make the most out of their chance at stardom in this remake of the Oscar-winning 1980 drama.
I actually had some high hopes for this movie. I’d been told it was a decent remake of the original, though, I haven’t seen the original, so I thought I would check this one out. The acting was pretty mediocre, but it did carry some pretty big names. A cute watch, if your home sick with pneumonia. 🙂
And winner of the OH. My. GOD. What. THE. Hell. Award…..
From Netflix: When virtuous high school student Dawn (Jess Weixler) becomes the victim of a sexual assault, she discovers that she has an unexpected line of defense: a toothed vagina. But coming to terms with the novelty of her anatomical anomaly might be easier said than done.
This movie came recommended by a friend of mine. It’s the most horrific thing I’ve seen in recent memory. Check out the trailer.
All these movies are available on NetFlix Instant, if you wish to subject yourself to the horrors…..
