The Smurfs: A Flickcharter’s Movie Review

Travis McClain

Bats: R, Throws: R. How Acquired: Traded for a player to be named later.

I hold a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Louisville, earned in history. I have lived with Crohn’s disease since 2005, and chronic depression since my youth. I bring into each film that I view a world view shaped by those and other parts of my background. I try to be mindful of the socio-political themes and implications of movies, intended or otherwise, and that surely shows in my blog pieces. I also love doughnuts.

    Barely seen a thousand movies and you feel qualified to review them?

      That is totally, unnecessarily harsh. Just because someone has “only” seen 1000 movies invalid. And just because they’ve “only” ranked 1000 movies on Flickchart, doesn’t mean they haven’t seen more.

      Anybody’s opinion is valid, and to trash it so easily is petty and stupid.

    • I have felt qualified to form opinions for most of my life, honestly.  I’ll be happy to debate the opinions themselves.  I will not, however, defend their existence.

    I have to admit, I’m surprised to hear this movie is even tolerable. The first trailer I saw literally made me shudder.

    Besides…how can you have Quentin Tarantino agree to make the Smurfs movie and not have him play Gargamel? :)
