A movie fanatic since she can remember, Lauren has decided to share her love of the big screen productions by authoring “Lauren´s Movie Reviews.” A self-proclaimed Orlando Bloom fan she has designed her own “Leggies” rating system based on Bloom´s character, Legolas, in the Lord of the Rings.
Review 8 - The Sixth Sense
A nine year old boy named Cole Sear (Haley Joe Osmet) lives in Philadelphia with his mother. Cole does not get along with other kids at school and gets into trouble because of his strange behavior. One day Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis), a psychiatrist, comes to help him. Cole finally tells Dr. Malcolm his secret - he sees dead people everywhere. Dr. Malcolm believes that Cole is mentally disturbed. While he is helping Cole, Dr. Malcolm is experiencing some strange things in his own life. His wife acts like he is not even there. This movie is very suspenseful and thrilling. It is also a little scary due to disturbing scenes of dead people. I even jumped at one scene. It has lots of twists in the plot which makes for a very unexpected ending. I give this movie 4.5 Leggies.
Review 7 - The Secret Window
Ever since I heard about the movie The Secret Window I started to ask people who have seen it what it was about and how they liked it. Most said it was very good so I really wanted to watch it. My friend Nishy said it was terrible but he thinks most things are awful. He even calls a Milky Way a poor man´s Snickers.
Review 6 - Hairspray
A young teen, Tracey Turnblatt and her Mom, played by John Travolta, and Dad (Christopher Walken), live in a small apartment. Tracey dreams of becoming one of the ‘Nicest Kids in Town´ on the Corny Collin´s dance show. She also happens to be in love with Link Larkin (Zac Effron) who has a bratty girlfriend named Amber. Amber´s mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) is even worse. This movie takes place in Baltimore in 1962. This was a time of great discrimination and segregation. My favorite part is when Link tells his teacher to ‘kiss my ---!” and gets sent to detention. John Travolta is totally hysterical as Edna Turnblatt, a laundress. You would never know it was him. I liked this movie because it is a musical. It is funny and colorful, filled with great costumes and sixties style hair dos. I give this movie 5 Leggies because of the music, costumes, hair and funny characters.
Review 5 - Moonstruck
The Leggies rating system:
1Leggie - Pitiful; not for human consumption. I wouldn´t even let my baby cousin sit in front of it in her exersaucer.
2 Leggies - Better off cleaning your room - your mom will be happy and you won´t waste any of those precious brain cells (believe me people on this one, I know what I´m talking about here).
3 Leggies - It´s raining; none of your friends are around, why not? There are either a couple of decent scenes or dogs are a central theme in the plot.
4 Leggies - Definitely worth your time. You´ll probably memorize a few lines of dialogue and use them in daily life, claiming them as your own.
5 Leggies - Must see! I´ll be adding this to my collection, watching it over and over, and pushing it on everyone who comes to my house.
