The Movies Tag Q46 + Q47: Most annoying actresses + Movies you love that everyone hates?

QUESTION: Most annoying actresses?

I didn’t want to answer this so much that I took a two month break from blogging. Wow. I just can’t think of any actresses I find annoying. If I do, I’m sure I’ll let you know… For now, let’s combine this with the next question, shall we?

QUESTION: Movies you love that everyone hates?
ANSWER: Maybe The Hobbit? The Visit, The Duff, The House Bunny, Wild Child…

I don’t think any of the films I’ve mentioned in my answer are universally hated, really, but for most of them I’m going by iMDB ratings, as I don’t think there are any films I love that everyone else hates!

The Hobbit is my main answer though, because I seem to love The Hobbit films a lot more than most other Middle-Earth fans. Whenever I hear anyone talk about the trilogy, their opinion is usually that there shouldn’t have been three films, and that each film drags. I disagree completely.

I used to love The Hobbit films more than the Lord of the Rings films (now they’re pretty much equal). I think this is because, before I saw The Hobbit, I wasn’t as big of a fan of LOTR as I am now that I’ve seen The Hobbit, if that makes ANY SENSE AT ALL?! 

Don’t get me wrong, I liked LOTR before The Hobbit, but for some reason I fell in love with The Hobbit, then fell in love with LOTR ten-times over how much I loved it before.

As for the rest of the films – The Visit and the chick flicks – they’re all underrated (in terms of their iMDB ratings at least) and people need to open their eyes to their glory!

I forgot how difficult it is to write these posts sometimes. If you’ve actually read this entire post, well done. If you didn’t, I don’t blame you 😀

The Movies Tag Q36 + Q37: Most overrated actress + Best tear-jerker?

QUESTION: Most overrated actress?
ANSWER: No-one at all

As you may be able to tell, I have ummed and ahhed over this question for a few weeks now. I have finally come to a conclusion. There are no overrated actresses. There. That’s my answer.

Moving on…

QUESTION: Best tear-jerker?
ANSWER: I Am Legend

Man that trailer’s good.

I guess you might not really call I Am Legend a tear-jerker, because it’s not a film that makes you cry all the way through. However, I have chosen it as my best tear-jerker because it features the scene that made me cry like I have never cried to any other scene in any other film. Ever.

SPOILERS FROM HERE ON OUT. Just warning you.

Let me bring you up to speed: The main character of I Am Legend is played by Will Smith. His character’s name is Robert. Robert has a dog named Sam. They are seemingly the last human and dog on Earth, and they have a very strong relationship. Earth is infested with human-esk, zombie-like creatures that will of course infect you with their disease if they manage to cut you. 

The scene I mentioned briefly before is the scene in which Robert realises Sam has been infected by these creatures, and is becoming like them. Rabid, violent, vicious, dangerous… He loves her more than anything. He knows she loves him, but she is showing much more anger. And much more teeth. If Robert dies, the human race will die too. He knows what he has to do, but that doesn’t make it any easier.

There is a struggle, but Robert wins… You see the life drain from Sam’s body, her eyes. You feel the pain of Robert letting his best and only friend go.

It’s one of the most destroying things I’ve ever had to watch. I cried with my entire body. I physically felt it everywhere, as if it was happening to me right there. I have teary eyes and a lump in my throat recalling it now.

So, it might not be classed as your typical tear-jerker, but watching just that scene alone, I cried the tears of ten-thousand tear-jerkers.

My apologies that it has been a while since the last Movies Tag question. Hopefully now that we are over the hurdle that was question 36, they will go back to your normal once-weekly schedule! So check back next week for the next question: Remake you wish had never been made?
