Little Women

This got nominated for Best Picture so I went and saw it – would not have other wise.   I’m pissed at the voters – couple hours of my life I’ll never get back.  I was so bored I asked my son if he wanted to play charades during it.

After about 20 minutes when one realizes that the scenes are jumping back and forth in time, everything else is predictable.  I’m not going to be too specific to spoil it for those that are going to see it but here’s a few of the zillion examples of how easy this story was to figure out.  You’ll know what I’m talking about when or if you’ve seen it:   It was obvious it was a dream, the second she picked up all of the writings what she was going to do with it, knew when she opened the mailbox what she was going to do with the letter.   I could go on and on with this simple, so obvious story.

I thought it would be at least tolerable with Emma Watson as one of the supporting actresses – I was wrong. I will acknowledge that none of the female actresses were nearly as annoying as Timothy Chalamet’s character (Laurie).  His prancing around got old.

I would not recommend this movie to anybody.  But if you are fan of the Hallmark Channel sappy movies, well I guess maybe for you.  Clearly not for me and I did realize that going in, just was hoping it was somewhat interesting.
