Before I begin, YES I did see The Hobbit last night and I LOVED it. If you so desire (tell me so in the comments) I will post a review of it later today....otherwise I'll just keep chugging along with the Christmas movies uninterrupted. Just let me know :)
LAST MOVIE WATCHED: The Holiday
TO WATCH OR NOT TO WATCH: This is not a great movie. It's not. But I love it. That miiiiiight have something to do with the movie trailer spoofs and also the fact that Jude Law is insanely and unbelievably attractive here. (Seriously Cameron Diaz's character has THE LIFE!!) This film falls into the category of being set during Christmas and not being ABOUT Christmas...so really you can watch it anytime (so no, it's not a Christmas necessity.) The film is an enjoyable rom com that benefits greatly from Kate Winslet's performance (despite not being able to drum up chemistry with Jack Black...which is understandable, even as amiable he may be.). Though fluffy, it has a few moments of real truth that I very much appreciate.
EMILY RATING: 7.8/10
