"3 HOURS OF FLASH - BOOM - BAM! AND NO BEN AFFLECK ASS!!"
3 HOURS OF MY LIFE THAT I WANT BACK!! I admit it, I bought into all the hype! I was truly excited about seeing 'Pearl Harbor.' That was until my ass fell asleep along with the rest of me 2 hours into the movie - and no bombs had even gone off yet. The effects were great! The story was not. Even worse yet, they didn't tell the whole story.'Pearl Harbor' sank alright - it sucked millions of dollars right out of peoples pockets. We wouldn't want to get too historical with a movie about one of the turning points in American History!!! Hello!! What were you thinking!! You need to be bitchslapped upside the head. The movie simply did not flow at all. Even in the beginning I could not figure out which little child was Ben or Josh, or it could of been the fact that the guy next to me kept elbowing me. But from that point on I knew exactly what was going to happen. This movie in no way surprised me. I called all the plot points from a million miles away. As for the romantic story line - I find it a little hard to believe. Even the beginning was hard to believe and far to cheesy for even me to swallow. I was gagging into my popcorn. When Ben Affleck told Kate Winslet, ' My heart hurts worse.' I wanted to throw the whole box at the screen. At that point I should of left, it only got worse. And Cuba's token black character - could of them given him even a shred more of a story line??? Would it of killed them? I think not. What really grates on my nerves is the fact that this movie really did get to me on an emotional level. Yeah, I was crying, I think I went through like half a box of tissues. But then again so was everyone else around me. So I guess it was the norm, for at least the theatre I was in - Yes even GUYS were getting choked up, as far as I could see through my tear filled eyes. But let's get back to the so-called 'love' story. Okay - HELLO, if there is even the remotest chance that your so-called 'true' love is alive. You're gonna wait for a long, long time, before you find a new love. Let alone the old love's best friend. And at least any girls I know - gonna screw them the first time out - when you wouldn't give it away to the 'true' love that left on duty. Yeah, yeah he said he wanted to wait. But come on, if offered how many guys would really refuse? He just wanted to make sure he was guaranteed the BOOTY when he came back. Okay, okay enough about the so-called 'love' story aspect. Let's move on to another money making scheme - THE SOUNDTRACK - Okay I have bought a Faith Hill cd in my time. So I am at least a semi-fan of her work. But come on to carry a movie theme. At least you would think the song would fit - you would be WRONG! In my opinion O-Town and this pains me to say, would have been a better choice. As much as I dislike them and their ABC show - their song 'All or Nothing' exemplifies this movie to a T. Faith Hill for one thing is no Celine Dion. The Titanic Theme was simply and still is - WOW - But that of course was mainly a product of James Horner, the composer. And hey at least with O-Town you'd get all the teenyboppers buying it.For a movie that I thought was going to be Fantastic. 'Pearl Harbor' just seemed to be F*CKED UP. Someone should of nuked this movie from the very beginning.
