If I Could Turn Back Time...

So, Endless Summer turned out to be awesome, I also got 3 others in that batch, Billy Wilder SpeaksGoodbye, Norma Jean and And the Beat Goes On: The Sonny and Cher Story.


Billy Wilder Speaks was a snooze-fest! I am a huge fan of Wilder but this film did absolutely nothing for me. If I could turn back time... I wouldn't waste my time watching this.








Goodbye, Norma Jean was BIZARRE! I actually hated it. HATED IT! It's from 1976 so I prepared myself for it but there is just no amount of preparation that can help, everything about it screams 70's.

The music... atrocious, it sounded like porn music. But watching a porno lacking nudity and sex would still be better than Goodbye, Norma Jean.

There was tons of unnecessary nudity. Normally that's a good thing but this was just bad. And the characters used some pretty interesting language. They'd use words like "Cock", "Blow Job", "Fuck", and it sounded forced.

The actress suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked. She had the most annoying mouth! Every time she opened her mouth she'd show every single tooth. That bite was nasty, I'm sorry. And she sounded fucking retarded ...Train wreck.

But the most offensive part was the disclaimer in the beginning of the movie, it basically states that everything in the film is true. Well, boys and girls, hate to break it to ya but that was a big-fat-enormous-HUGE-gigantic-lie. Everything like her hair color, her first hubby, actual events... I don't even know where to start... nothing about the movie actually happened the way it was portrayed in this mess of a film. Total failure!

And the Beat Goes On: The Sonny and Cher Story was a movie I had seen a loooong time ago but it was probably about 10 years ago so I queued it. WOW! The Actress who plays Cher really got the character down! She was perfect. Every nuance and mannerism was spot on. And the look... flawless. I totally thought I was watching Cher. She was the best part of the movie but it was a good find. I loved it.


That's it. Good night.

  2. Too bad about the bad movies...

    I prefer movies that are bad, but in a funny way! Like Twilight, for instance. Or Just My Luck. Just My Luck is amazing, especially in dubbed-French. Watch it!
