5 Lines (or less) Movie Reviews: MI5 Rogue Nation, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Paper Towns

5 Lines (or less) Reviews

Mission Impossible 5 – Rogue Nation:

MI has become the “Coca-Cola of Movies”: they know how to sell it, it maintains a consistent quality and it NEVER disappoints. It is the one single franchise from which you can always expect the best, and Rogue Nation is no exception. Visually stunning, gripping and suspenseful storyline, mind-DESTROYING action scenes, and Tom Cruise who is definitely a vampire (that guy does NOT age) is ridiculously fantastic as ever.

Potahto Rating:

4 out of 5 Potahtos

Watch It If:

you want to see the single best chase scene in action movie history (not kidding). And also if you’re super into great espionage-thrillers starring a 52-year-old Tom Cruise still kicking ass looking like a sexy 30-year-old.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl:

Friendship, love, parenting, witty banter, high-school cliques, crazy short films, stop-motion animation, cancer-drama, fear, life, death and a coming-of-age tale all rolled into one heartfelt and delightful package. I admire the way the writer dealt with cancer by not forcing you to feel pity and constant sorrow for the lovable characters. And I simply cherish that RARE event when a movie turns out to be better than its book.

Potahto Rating:

5 out of 5 Potahtos

Watch It If:

you are tired of sappy love stories and believe that teenage flicks on illnesses should not be so “boo-hoo-please-cry-for-me” type. And also if you need to see something that is in many ways better than The Fault in Our Stars.

Paper Towns:

It’s sad when a movie you were really excited about turns out to be a major let-down. Paper Towns is painfully dull! Nat Wolff who seems like a full-of-life-fun-guy IRL was the biggest depression-inducing aspect of this film for his monotonous performance. The super hyped Cara Delevingne: non-existent. The script: not so powerful. The only acceptable performances were by the main lead’s two best friends. 

Potahto Rating:

2 out of 5 Potahtos

Watch It If:

you want to see a mildly decent bromance. Otherwise, please don’t bother.

    Whoa, I really like this whole segment. Now this has got me thinking of doing one myself! Excellent depictions of the movies and I really like the brevity throughout. Please keep this up!

    Thanks,

    Haha, I like this! Similar theme to what I actually posted for book reviews this morning, coincidentally.

    I still need to see the new Mission Impossible, thanks for the reminder.

    Thanks. These are all movies I was considering seeing. I guess I’ll skip Paper Towns.

    You know, I was certain that paper towns wouldn’t work as a movie. The book was great, but there’s absolutely no way it could make a good movie.

    I wanted to see the dying girl one, but if she dies in the end, I’ll cry and maybe it’s better if I don’t watch it T_T

    Mission impossible: You’ve said it all, Potahto! And yes, Tom Cruise has to be a vampire. I mean, he played Lestat once! Hmmm, curioser and curioser…

      You took the words right outta my mouth! I KNEW it from the moment I read the book that it’s not gonna be a good movie. Some books should be left alone.
      And oh God no, pleeaaassee watch Me and Earl and the Dying Girl! The spoiler isn’t in the movie title 😛 She doesn’t die, trust me!! Just watch it. You won’t regret it :3
