The Smurfs: A Flickcharter’s Movie Review

Travis McClain

Bats: R, Throws: R (Does both poorly.) How Acquired: Basically, I begged and pleaded to be allowed to contribute.

I hold a bachelor of arts degree earned in the discipline of history from the University of Louisville. I have four cats, am pro-LGBT equality and was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2005. I have also fought severe, chronic depression since my youth. I love baseball but am bored by every other sport. All of these, and more, factor into my perspective on the films I view and the thoughts I share in the blog posts below.

    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? :)
