    MOVIE REVIEWS ON THE HECTIC WEEK

    Green Tea Movie spent the last Christmas holiday weekend watching again and reviewing three films which we did not featured them on our blog reviews. Time is running short for us to compile the greatest movie reviewed this year. Fear not, these movies fall on the moderate category so they will be unlikely to be featured on the Top 20 Movie which Green Tea Movie will unveiled on December 31 and January 1.

    Here are some missed out reviews to be featured on this quick post:

    THE PROPOSAL
    English - Romantic/Comedy
    Distributor: Buena Vista
    Running Time: 108 mins.
    Director: Anne Fletcher
    Producers: Todd Lieberman, David Hoberman, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Kristin Burr
    Writer: Pete Chiarelli
    Casts: Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds, Malin Akerman, Mary Steenburgen, Craig T Nelson, Betty White
    Plot: Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is the executive editor-in-chief of a book publishing company, Golden Books. All of her workers, including her assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds), strongly dislike her for her bossy, cold demeanor. After learning she is being deported to Canada, she forces Andrew to marry her, as his future is tied to hers. When the government investigates, Mr. Gilbertson (Denis O'Hare) informs them that they will undergo rigorous testing to prove that the marriage is not fraudulent, after being notified by Bob Spaulding that this marriage might be a sham.

    "Top class acts by Sandra Bullock who shows you who is the fierce cat while Ryan Reynolds made every girl drools. They are indeed very chemically bonded. However, the story is a bit recycled from other form of similar desperate and shotgun romantic-tied up by marriage."

    THE RATING
    Story - 2.5 stars
    Casts - 4.5 stars
    Cinematography - 3.5 stars
    Effects - 3.5 stars
    Overall - 3.5 stars
    Green-Tea-O-Meter: 13.6


    THE UGLY TRUTH
    English - Romantic/Comedy
    Distributor: Sony Pictures
    Running Time: 96 mins.
    Director: Robert Luketic
    Producers: Katherine Hiegl, Karen McCullah Lutz, Kirsten Smith, Tom Rosenberg
    Writer: Nicole Eastman (Story); Karen McCullah Lutz, Kirsten Smith (Screenplay)
    Casts: Katherine Hiegl, Gerard Butler, Bonnie Somerville, Yvette Nicole Brown
    Plot: Abby Richter (Katherine Heigl) is a morning show TV producer in Sacramento, California. Coming home from a disastrous date one night, she happens to see a segment of a local television show, "The Ugly Truth", run by Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler), whose cynicism about relationships prompts Abby to call into the show to argue with him on-air. The next day, she discovers that the station is threatening to cancel her show because of its poor ratings, and the station owner has hired Mike to do a segment on her show to bring them back up. At first, the two have a rocky relationship; Abby thinks Mike is crass and disgusting while Mike finds Abby to be a control freak.

    "Gerard Butler and Katherine Hiegl ride on a smart, sexy, glossy and out of the box flirting game that almost throw the genuine idea out of the window. The dialogue is erotic and they bond well to each other in the dangerous sexy game which may be pleasant at time and crappy at another time"

    THE RATING
    Story - 3.5 stars
    Casts - 4.5 stars
    Cinematography - 3.0 stars
    Effects - 3.5 stars
    Overall - 3.5 stars
    Green-Tea-O-Meter: 14.9


    LAW ABIDING CITIZEN
    English - Thriller/Action
    Distributor: Overture Films
    Running Time: 109 mins.
    Director: F Gary Gray
    Producers: Gerard Butler, Kurt wimmer, Mark Gill, Lucas Foster, Alan Siegel
    Writer: Kurt Wimmer
    Casts: Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx, Leslie Bibb, Colm Meaney, Viola Davis
    Plot: The film takes place in Philadelphia and tells the story of a man who decides to exact justice on his family's killers, as well as the criminal justice system. After a home invasion leaves his wife and daughter dead, engineer Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) is told that one of the criminals responsible will only get a light conviction, as much of the evidence against that criminal was compromised by a bungled forensic investigation. Shelton pleads for the prosecutor, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), to take the case to court. However, Rice is mostly interested in maintaining his 96% conviction rate, and tells Shelton that it is not what you know, but what can be proven in court, stating that it's how the justice system works.

    "This movie is retro-feel, retrospect at most of its time. The adrenaline is real and the pulsating pulse is faster. However, the thrills qucikly evaporate but you still enjoy it as much as possible. Gerard Butler is totally insane and mysterious, yet plans go according to plan terrificly."

    THE RATING
    Story - 3.5 stars
    Casts - 4.0 stars
    Cinematography - 3.5 stars
    Effects - 3.5 stars
    Overall - 3.5 stars
    Green-Tea-O-Meter: 14.6
