The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 - SIGH!!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1  2011Bill CondonKristen Stewart,Robert Pattinson,Taylor Lautner,Anna Kendrick,Jackson RathboneStephenie Meyer Bitter,Bitterometer,meter The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (2011)
 

First off, this is the first wedding I ever cried during. No, not because it was romantic or believable, but because I knew that this was the beginning of two hours of my life I’ll never get back. It didn’t help that these characters are so miserable they can barely muster a grin during the wedding that they’ve spent three movies chasing. From the moment the paralyzed guy moved his foot to grab a letter on the floor it was clear this movie was going to be just as bad, if not worse, than the prior films.

The first thirty minutes of this film has absolutely no narrative. It’s a wedding and a honeymoon and frankly feels like it’s ending from the very beginning. Unfortunately, it goes on for another hour and a half after that. Bella gets pregnant and we spend a good portion of the film watching her look like shit while the vampires, who clearly have nothing to do with their undeath at all, dote over her.

There is one really great scene where the werewolves are telepathically talking to each other and it feels like we are watching a terrible deleted scene from Disney’s Lion King. It was quite laughable.

Take a look at Lizard from the reboot of Amazing Spider-Man

 

Comingsoon.net has posted a sneak peak of webheads new feature film nemesis, Lizard, as he will be seen in "Amazing Spider-Man". Interesting design, perhaps a bit too subtle, but it's good that they didn't stick with villains we've already seen.

And here is the image:

Bitter,Bitterometer,meter  

Thanks to Russian Spambots we are shutting down user posts and comments for a short while until we figure out a way to get this under control. In the past 24 hours we have received thousands of spam in both sections and can no longer manually control it. In fact, we deleted some unposted actual content thanks to the insanity.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope to be back to normal soon!

If you have any suggestions on how to control this using a Drupal module please email me at jas [at] bitterbalcony [dot] com.

Thanks again for your patience!

A Bad Buzz: The Rum Diary Review!!!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, The Rum Diary 2011Bruce RobinsonBruce RobinsonJohnny Depp, Aaron EckhartHunter S. Thompson (novel) Bitter,Bitterometer,meter The Rum Diary(2011)
 

“The Rum Diary,” is the pseudo-biographical film based on the “lost” novel by the papa of gonzo journalism himself, the late Hunter S. Thompson. The book, finally published in 1998, chronicles the early days of the iconic writer’s career, following the misadventures of American journalists in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The misleading advertising showcased “The Rum Diary” as another wild ride à la Terry Gilliam’s LSD-fueled opus “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” However, this adaptation of Thompson’s inebriated hi-jinks, directed by the semi-retired Bruce Robinson (“Withnail and I”) strives to present the idealistic, noble side of the White Buffalo. Here, Thompson (under the pseudonym Paul Kemp) is revealed not only for his enticement of booze and hallucinogens, but as a harsh critic of corporate greed and social injustice in the Flower Power generation.
