Don Jon (2013) – My rating: 5.5/10

DonJonI found this movie a bit on the raunchy side.  Don Jon was about a young man who felt watching pron was better than the real thing.  He had plenty of women and was handsome and charismatic but didn’t really want to commit to anyone.  Along comes Scarlette Johansson and all goes to pot.  This movie was so repetitive, I could hardly wait for it to be over.  The same type scenes were played over and over.  Don Jon was played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and I really became tired of him.  I normally like all his movies but this one just didn’t sit right with me.  Scarlette Johansson did little to save it.  Julianne Moore was the only saving grace.  Her character was somewhat calming and soothing to the film.  If you have nothing else to do or if you have nothing else to watch, then give it a whirl otherwise, skip this one!

LOVE STINKS (1999) – My Rating: 8/10

Here’s a Comment That Makes Sense

*** VERY LIGHT SPOILERS  ***
LoveStinksLove Stinks is a funny movie that explores control between a man and a women. Controlling a man comes natural to many women, mostly because we’ve been in control of our lives all of our adult life. Suddenly, along comes a candidate ripe for marriage. According to the Bible, a women’s role is to be supportive and submissive allowing the man to take the lead — if you are not into what the Bible says, you’ll keep control or at least try.

I believe, in this hilarious movie, French Stewart’s character Seth knew, on some level, that this was not the right women for him. She looked magnificent, she was a heavy hitter in the sack and she was smart and loyal. So what more could a man ask for? I think in this case, he just wanted to be a man and he wanted the respect that comes along with being a man. If Bridgette Wilson’s character, Chelsea was the submissive type of women, we would have missed out on this very funny, dark comedy. Seth would have been willing to marry a soft, kind, non-controlling women in a minute. Bridgette showed her true colors by changing one of his rooms into a nursery — that should have been his first clue. Sometimes you have to ask, why is this good looking person available when picking a mate. There’s always a reason they are unattached.

I thought French Stewart did a fantastic job portraying the character Seth — demonstrating that he is an excellent actor. The ending was unpredictable and I was quite pleased with the results.

In conclusion, I think no one can really speak for how someone else will perceive a movie — I can only say, I loved “Love Stinks” and highly recommend it, especially to the ladies who have too much balls and the men who don’t have enough!
