And so it is with a sad heart, I must announce the shelving of Blu Ray Tuesdays. I am swapping shifts with another nurse and instead of doing every other Tuesday, I’ll now be doing EVERY Tuesday. Which means I won’t be home in time to enjoy the wonders of BRT. Hopefully the Roomies and I will be able to do some other movie thing but for now… this is the last BRT post. (Ouch, writing that makes my heart hurt!)
The menu: Fancy pizza- chicken AND bacon!
Well, I guess I am ending in true BRT fashion. This movie was AWFUL! And it’s hard to say that, you know? It has so many things that I love in it: beautiful visuals, Henry Cavill, Henry Cavill shirtless and Greek mythology. Yet, somehow it ends up being a total hot mess. So disappointing.
I was so excited when I heard they were making this movie. Theseus is one of my favourite heroes in mythology and my home girl/goddess Athena is like front and centre of the story. When I heard they were making the movie in a style reminiscent of ‘300’, I rejoiced. And I believe I may have mentioned once or twice, I have serious mad love for Henry Cavill.
Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I knew nothing of Greek mythology. I spent all two hours of this movie going “WHAT?!??!”. I frightened the dog I was looking after because I yelled at the TV so often. I couldn’t enjoy it, I was so irritated. And aside from that, there were other ridiculous annoyances that just added to the all encompassing belief I have that this movie is terrible. For example, if your superhero power that can save the world is your virginity- you don’t give it up- even if the dude is Henry Cavill. Also, the movie was boring. I don’t know how they made a movie with swords in it boring, but they did.
Recommended?: No. I’m getting harsh in my old age!
