Ramona and Beezus:
Based on the Beverly Cleary book Ramona Forever, obviously this is a family film. Â From the trailer it looks to be fun and probably worth the trip to the theater with the kids.
I really wanted to be able to come here and say you should run to the theater and see this movie. Â I wanted to, but then I saw it. Â Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t suck. Â It has some good action and the plot twists are kinda neat (if a tad predictable), but I’m over my “My god! Angelina is so beautiful! Lust lust lust!!” phase. Â Sometimes she is a good actress, and sometimes she isn’t. Â She just didn’t get me to care about her character one way or the other. Â On top of that, I’m getting to the point where I don’t buy her as an action star. Â It could be my aversion to ultra skinny women, but her lack of a substance, to me, hurts because I can’t really get behind her toting around big guns and simultaneously kicking the asses of a half dozen guys when I think the kick of the weapons would knock her down or that any one of those trained fighters she’s up against could overpower her. Â Anyway, if you don’t mind that and you just want to go see an action movie, this one is worth seeing, though I suggest going to an earlier show to get a cheaper price. Â If you don’t need to see the movie, skip it, and wait for the rental.
