Papoose #2 and I have been wanting to see Burlesque since it came out in theaters but never had the chance. Rented it from Red Box and watched it Friday night. I wasn't nearly as impressed as I had hoped to be. It was ok, but pretty cheesy.
Also rented Black Swan. Incredibly unimpressed. I love Natalie Portman, and she did a fabulous job. It was just a crappy movie. Too disjointed and haphazard. Introducing many different characters but bouncing around too much to really develop any of them. That movie tried way too hard to be sophisticated, intelligent, deep.
It reminded me of someone trying to use big words to look intelligent, and making a fool of themselves doing so.
Also, I hate a movie I can't just enjoy. I don't care if its comedy, romance, action, thriller or drama, but I damn sure better be able to enjoy it, or I'm not wasting my limited time on it.
