It has been a while since I’ve written a movie review. And the first movie I watched for this movie review comeback is The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Sometimes, I ask myself why. Other times, why not? This is one of those times when I asked myself why did I watch this movie?
Let me just firstly admit that the sole reason why I wanted to watch this movie was because my Tumblr dash, at one point, was filled with posts of Magnus and Alec. Pages and pages of these two on my Tumblr dashboard. I can totally see the reason why these two are “shippable”. But that is not the point of this very post. This very post is for me to be very objective in my reviews and I shall be a rational reviewer (even though I may be writing this while half-asleep).
I would also like to admit that I tried reading the book but three pages in, I put it down and gave up. So, I came into the movie theatre with no expectation at all. None. Zilch.
