GenXGirl’s Film Reviews
510 Films have been rated or reviewed by GenXGirl.
- Moulin Rouge (2001)
- A dazzling fantasy world, and love tragedy, the set design, costumes, and of course music, all cumulate into an original theatrical spectacle.
- Christmas with the Kranks (2004)
- Christmas comedy about a couple who cancel all Christmas festivities to save money for a cruise ship vacation instead. Only grabbed my attention at the end when a mysterious character enters the frame. Strange & sadly lacking in real humour.
- Love Actually (2003)
- Multi–storied Christmas romantic comedy/drama, sure to put you in the festive frame of mind, with an all–star cast. All the right twists and turns to demand your undivided attention. Great the first time, but nothing I'm dying to revisit.
- DVD $19.95 | Blu-Ray $29.95
- Notting Hill (1999)
- Slightly funny in places, while slightly nauseating overall (possibly due to an awful soundtrack), it will possibly depend on how much of a Julia Roberts fan you are as to your opinion. Mine is that it's only slightly better than rubbish.
$15 $11.25, $19.95
- Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004)
- An insecure Bridget believes her now boyfriend Mr Darcy is being unfaithful. And when Daniel arrives back on the scene things go very pear–shaped. Silly plot, and nothing fresh is offered in this predictable and disappointing sequel.
- DVD $39.95, $49.95
- Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)
- A sort of modern retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice – the dilemmas of a 30–something single girl living/working in London, as she juggles career with romance, friends and family. Feel–good romantic comedy with some substance.
- DVD $24.95 | Blu-Ray $29.95
- Wedding Singer, The (1998)
- Occassionally hilarious flashback to the 80's, a wanna–be rock–star falls for a waitress who's about to marry a complete toad. Worth seeing for "Love Stinks" as well as other original gems that sum up that cringeful era of music so perfectly.
- DVD $14.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95
- Music and Lyrics (2006)
- Better–than–most rom coms, a washed–up 80's boy–band pop singer teams up with his quirky home–helper to write a song for his come–back performance. Any woman who's ever idolised an 80's pop–star will love it.
$19.95 $14.95 | Blu-Ray $24.95
- About a Boy (2002)
- Self–absorbed wealthy bachelor meets lonely unpopular teen – the pair form an unlikely friendship that enhances each of their lives. Original feel–good film, and a role that Grant was born to play.
- Among Giants (1998)
- Atop gigantic electrical towers, in the Yorkshire countryside, romance blossoms between the crew employed to paint them. A quiet film that slowly pulls you in, and quite stunning camera work.
