10 Movies I Loved That Really Aren’t That Amazing

overrated movies m jpg
I am one of those pop culture geeks that basically enjoys every movie I watch in some capacity, with a few exceptions (for example, “Garfield” starring Jennifer Love Hewitt). I am not a movie snob in the slightest. Without fail, I can watch “Hitch,” starring Will Smith and Eva Mendes, every time it is on TV. Over the years, there have been movies that really blew my mind when I first saw them; flicks that made me say, “Oh my god, that was one of the best films I’ve ever seen.” But then, upon a second or third viewing, or seeing other films that were better, or really thinking about what the hell there was to like so damn much, I’ve realized that either the movie was actually quite sucky or simply just not as good as I thought. Here are 10 examples of movies I lovvvvvved so much I wanted to marry them — until I realized they weren’t that great or great at all.

It’s Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s Magnet Boy!

An 11-year-old Brazilian boy discovered his rare super power when his father asked him to get a knife from the kitchen one day and it stuck to his chest. Since then, doctors have been baffled by the magnetic properties of Paulo’s chest and back. At school, he’s been aptly nicknamed Magnet Boy. And at home he entertains his family by allowing them to stick scissors, silverware, spare change and other household sundries to his chest. Now he just has to hone his powers for the good of humankind, like a true superhero. [Newslite] Keep reading »

13 Celebs Rocking The Union Jack

Helen Mirren
Helen Mirren wasn’t lying when she said things gets better after your 20s. While the picture of her younger self is breathtakingly beautiful — like I seriously can’t stop looking at it — Dame Helen looks damn good in her Esquire spread, wrapped in the British flag. She’s 65, people! And man, that makeshift Union Jack frock is a good look on her. [Celebitchy]

Evening Quickies: Weezer Hosting An Indie Rock Cruise & What Sex With Charlie Sheen Is Actually Like

  • Weezer is hosting an “indie rock cruise” from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico, next January! Bands slated to play/re-enact that “Titantic” I’m-king-of-the-world scene include Yuck, Wavves, Free Energy, Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr. Honestly, Weezer is more “Top 40″ than “indie” at this point, but maybe organizing a Carnival cruise is one of those hipster things, like wearing Hush Puppies, that is so hipster it makes the mainstream indie again?

  • Sarah Jessica Parker is on the cover of Vogue again. Again! [Just Jared]
  • Emma Watson said she had no idea Daniel Radcliffe struggled with alcohol because “as far as I know, he never took a sick day. He was like the most professional, amazing guy ever.” [Us Weekly]
  • Even Richard Simmons is getting in on this planking action. At least, that’s what I think this photo is. [Dlisted]
