Good Morning Everyone! I have another film review to add to my little collection.
The other day this little film called Midnight in Paris came in the mail from Netflix. I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty pumped about it. In fact, as soon as I saw my boyfriend, I said "guess what I got in the mail todayyy??!" And he was pumped in response to my pumpedness.
Anyways, we had been looking forward to seeing this since we had gone away to Portsmouth last month. We had been clicking through the on-demand flicks in our hotel room, and decided to watch something else instead; so I made a mental note to put it on my Netflix queue.
After seeing it, I am a little confused as to why it received Oscar nominations. Seriously confused. I've never really been a fan of Woody Allen, especially his films within the past fifteen years or so. They are always extremely disappointing to me. But because it received so much hype, Dennis and I thought it was going to be this great romantic comedy that we would both actually enjoy.
It was bad. Like pretty freakin' bad. Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams were an engaged couple visiting her parents in Pairs. Her character was pushy, self-centered, and obviously in love with a different man. Owen Wilson played the lost film screenwriter attempting to write his first novel. One night he drunkenly stumbles into an old car from the 1920's, what he believed to be "the golden age." He bumped into Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, and partied with them. Night after night, when the clock struck midnight, he would jump into the car and it would bring him to a the flapper-era; where he would drink and dine with the most famous writers and artists of that time.
Although it was a sweet concept, it was poorly portrayed. The script was not that great, and Owen Wilson was the same as always. The only part I enjoyed was Adrian Brody's little camio in the middle of the movie, because he was hilarious and I have a not-so secret crush on him. (I know, I'm weird. Don't judge.)
Don't waste your time. Woody Allen needs to stop filming, because he's just wasting money.
