Snap! Judgment: Dear John, From Paris With Love, Frozen
This week’s Snap! Judgment involves a love story, an action thriller, and a suspenseful horror flick. Read on to find out which of these movies are worth seeing!
Ah, a tear-jerking heartfelt love story just in time for Valentine’s Day. Guys, just when your girlfriend FINALLY watched her DVD of “The Notebook” so many times that it won’t even play anymore, another Nicholas Sparks based movie is ready for release, so you better hit the ATM because you’ll need cash for both popcorn AND tissues.
Brace yourself for quite possibly the cheesiest romance of the year, and yes, I’m aware that it’s still February. Channing Tatum (named “John” in the movie, hence the title) and Amanda Seyfried are the star-crossed lovers in this story about a soldier who falls for a girl right before leaves for duty. They keep their romance alive by writing each other letters. Besides the obvious, this movie will hopefully be carried solely by the chemistry and the acting abilities of the two main characters, much similar to how amazing Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams were together.
From Paris With Love
Ok, there’s not really much else that I want to say about this movie than the following: bald-headed John Travolta with a goatee is FRIGHTENING. Not only is he frightening, but that in itself turns me off from the movie SO much that there is no chance of me seeing this, EVER. Not even having Jonathan Rhys Meyers co-starring can save this. Seriously, I don’t even feel like watching this trailer to review it. If you’re not scared off by the photo of Travolta, by all means please judge for yourself.
So… let me get this straight. The entire movie takes place on a ski resort chair-lift? Ummm… ok. Aside from the potential budget (or lack thereof) that this movie had, the far-fetched story here is of 3 snowboarders stranded on a chair-lift after closing. The resort won’t open for another week (no one checked the chair-lifts??) so the trio must do whatever they can do survive the brutal weather and whatever else randomly comes their way. If you’re looking for a different type of corny than what “Dear John” has to offer, go for the corny horror/suspense that this should be chock full of. Shawn Ashmore stars.
