Movie Review - Gimme Shelter [21 Jul 2014|02:18am]

islandgirl_246
Title: Movie Review for Gimme Shelter
Author/Artist: islandgirl_246
Notes/Warnings: Contains some spoilers of the movie and at least one major one, but it’s indicated.
I used to write reviews for an online newspaper, but I haven’t done one in quite a while and since I’m up at 2 a.m., what else is there to do.
Here goes . . .

*******
Gimme-Shelter (Vanessa Hudgens as Apple)

I’ve never much rated Vanessa Hudgens as an actress. Most of the hype around her for some reason has always seemed contrived, and the films I’ve seen her in since her career started its upswing – Beastly (2011), Sucker Punch (2011), Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012) – never convinced me I was wrong in my summation.
It’s not that she was horrible in them, it’s just that she was ordinary. Most of the hype it seemed stemmed from her days in High School Musical and her pretty face. It always is a shame when mainly US movies seem to pay such attention to looks and so little to genuine acting chops; and that essentially was my problem with Vanessa Hudgens.
Then I saw her in Gimme Shelter (2013) and I said “Oh?!” Read more...Collapse )
