One of the worst movies I’ve ever seen may be The Covenant. I remember going to the movie theater (yeah, saw that one on the big scree) with my college roommate Jan to watch it. It is straight up ridiculous, BUT most people I know have seen it because the cast is so attractive. showing here:
The truth is even if it is a bad story with bad lines and really awkward acting I may actually pay to see it if the cast is super cute. Coincidentally, the time I watched the Covenant with Jan I also paid to be the only two people in a movie theater (I was actually on the phone with another friend for part of it).
Flash forward to John Tucker Must Die. This one I at least wised up and RENTED. I guess the allure of Jesse Metcalfe was too much to pass up. Here he is with a sassy cheerleader:
In the NYC Fringe show that I’m in there is a line about beauty fooling people. “we fall for it and die for it all the time.” I Do Not want to be someone who gets duped by a pretty cast. This is the major reason why I have not yet watched the newest Twilight movie. If I was to watch it I would only be seeing it because Taylor Lautner is actually pretty stacked and, damn it, the boy is hot. So I don’t see it. I’ll try to watch things that I think are engaging and worthwhile and leave the drooling for the checkout magazine covers….. and this blog.
