Wick-Quoting #38: Easy A

“I just thought of the funniest thing.  My name is an anagram for ‘I love.'”

=======================================================

There was a bit of a hype when Easy A initially came out – and rightfully so.  The movie is fresh and contains plenty of original jokes.  Combine all that with Emma Stone, you got an enjoyable film to watch during the break.

How is Emma Stone not more popular?

Emma Stone is Easy A’s “pocket full of sunshine.”  Not only is she pretty, but she is funny and quirky in a good way as well.  Her personality is what makes the film so much more enjoyable to watch.  While the content of the film isn’t quite that amazing, Emma Stone fills in all the gaps which the film skips over.  The story does not have any major plot twists: it is more of a slice-of-life sort of narrative.

Students clean bathrooms now?

Because the film does not have cgi or any major stars, the budget was only 8 million total.  Easy A was able to bring in about 74 million, which isn’t bad – actually this is pretty good news for Emma Stone, considering that she was almost going to star in Sucker Punch instead.  Not only did Sucker Punch cost more to make (82 million), but just barely broke even (89 million), which goes to show the difference in quality between the two films.

I miss the days of tray lunches.

So the grade, not quite an A:

8.0

My Rating System

So I’ve been getting (a lot of) emails on my rating system and what the numbers actually mean.  This post will help you all understand what movies you should and shouldn’t be watching based on the final numbers.

10 – This movie is completely flawless.  Of course, a rating of 10 will probably never exist because nothing is truly perfect (especially if people are involved).

9 – One helluva good movie.  You cannot miss/skip watching a movie with a rating of 9 or above.  To do so would be the equivalent of watching the whole Twilight series.  Back-to-back.  With your parents.

8 – A really nice movie as well, but with some apparent flaws.  For example, one actor is completely off/terrible (Star Wars) or there is a lack of character development (Zombieland).  A rating of 8 means a trip to the theaters is still definitely worth it.

7 – Not the best but still satisfying.  Watching a movie with a rating of 7 would not be considered a “waste of time.”  A couple of examples include Iron Man 2, I, Robot, and The Princess and the Frog.

6 – You know that feeling you get after you watch the closing scene of a movie, and you just sit there (not in awe)?  That is the feeling of a 6, the kid running between the beach and the ocean.  Anything lower is not worth your time.

5 – You’ve just spent $10 to sit in one spot for about 2 hrs.  Congrats.

4 – You call this a movie?

3 – Imagine a world where M. Night Shyamalan is considered the best director of all time and chick flicks are considered highly engaging.  You are at number 3.

2 – **

1 – *

 

So there you have it.  Hopefully the rating system makes much more sense now.  Basically, don’t pay attention to anything under a rating of 6, and definitely watch movies that are above a rating of 8.
