September Movies Digest

I was on holidays, movies included....

Machine Gun Preacher

Acting: 3/5
Story: 3/5
Perception: 2/5

Rating: 2.5/5

Even though it is based on a true story, moreover a sensitive one, the movie isn't in anyway out of the ordinary. The flow is quite choppy; and as for the acting, some moments seem to be slightly overdone

The Campaign

Acting: 4/5
Story: 2.5/5
Perception: 3/5

Rating: 3/5

'Ides of March' weird cousin. A well-played hyperbolic satire. Funny but not hilarious. There are some good laughable moments but they're seldom, for me most of it being chuckles.

Snow White And The Huntsman

Acting: 3/5
Story: 2/5
Perception: 3/5

Rating: 2.5/5

The purpose was to get a darker more 'serious' version of the famous fairy tale, but it didn't come out that well. The story had some fast transitions and many of the characters were useless; plus I'm not a fan of the artistic licences they've taken. On the acting side there were some almost solid performances by the Queen, The Huntsman and the Dwarfs as a collective character, but sadly Kristen Stewart didn't surprise me, being as faded as I expected. Also I didn't understand why everybody had to scream to make a point. But when it comes to the visuals, there no complaints can be done.
