I love campy garbage -- particularly themed campy garbage -- so naturally after I was so satisfied by the amazing Burlesque, I hesitantly anticipated that Country Strong would be another new entry in the annals of so-bad-it's-good-classics. But, unfortunately, it's just kind of blandly bad, and unforgivably little fun. Shockingly, though? It's not bad because of Gwyneth Paltrow -- she's actually pretty good in it! Life's full of little surprises, isn't it?
I'm kinda blown away by how much money The Roommate made this weekend. I mean, I know it had virtually no competition, was kind of a horror movie, starred two hot women and had almost no reviews due to the studio wisely refusing to screen it for critics. But still? Why did people see this? Is all of its $15 million gross due to sheer ironic viewing? When did people in Brooklyn get $15 million to spend on anything? And where were all of you when I needed you for Burlesque? Anyway, this movie's awful. Let's get into it.
