Best & Worst Of Netflix #1

I find myself watching a lot of movies nowadays with being up throughout the night with Lux and staying home majority of the time. In fact, I've been watching so many movies I feel like I could be a professional Netflix movie recommender. So I've decided to start a new series doing just that! 
Kind of..

This is basically just going to be me rating/reviewing the movies I watch and letting you know if you should bother watching them or not.

Side Effects

This movie started off slow. Actually, the whole movie was slow up until the last 30 minutes or so. It's about a woman who is severely depressed and is put on a new type of drug which has, you guessed it, side effects. There's a nice little twist near the end though. Although it isn't the greatest movie it does have some pretty great actors- Jude Law, Channing Tatum, Rooney Mara and Catherine Zeta Jones. It's something to watch if you're bored.

Step Up 2: The Streets

Ugh...where do I even start with this movie? Usually sequels to really good movies suck. They never seem to compare to the original. Although sometimes you're pleasantly surprised because the sequel turns out to be really good. Yes well, this movie is NOT one of those. Absolute rubbish. The acting was bad, the story was extremely weak and it seemed like they just threw it all together. One big mess of a movie. One thing I was actually shocked at is that Channing Tatum made an appearance. Sadly, even he couldn't make this movie bearable. 

You Again

I really liked this movie! So much better than I was expecting when I first put it on. Its about a girl named Marni who was bullied in high school and a few years later her brother is about to marry her high school bully. She sets out to try to show him the truth about her. I definitely recommend watching this one!

The Best Man Holiday

This one was just kind of 'meh'. It wasn't bad but it really wasn't good either. A little on the dull side although I did shed a couple tears during. Also, if you don't pay attention to the first like five minutes of the movie where it looks like they're just introducing the characters, you'll likely miss what most of the movie is about. It sort of tells the stories of what happened between the friends at the very beginning.
