UGH WHY DID VALENTINE’S DAY HAVE TO FALL ON A FRIDAY?
Now Hollywood has an excuse to put out a bunch of terrible romantic movies that will probably do well because people will feel compelled to go to “date movies” thanks to this monstrosity of a holiday.
Of course, Endless Love is just Nicholas Sparks-lite, starring Alex Pettyfer (whose career choices are really disappointing me, because he is really handsome, and I would very much like to watch him in a movie), so we won’t waste any more time on that.
And then there’s Winter’s Tale, which is apparently based on a 1983 novel I’d never heard of before this week, and features time travel (maybe?), a ridiculous flying horse (absolutely), and Colin Farrell’s caterpillar eyebrows (definitely). It looks silly and bad, and also there’s the line where he tells his romantic interest “you’re beautiful,” and she replies “so are you,” because DOES SHE NOT SEE THE EYEBROWS?
So, anyway, Valentine’s Day is a true horror, and all these movies look also.
Oh, also, the Robocop remake is out. Huh.
