Center Stage (Erin: 4 Stars, Bret: 2 Stars)

You are probably looking at the post title and thinking one of two things: (1) That’s gotta be a typo; or (2) Is Erin on acid?

You are probably also looking at that screenshot and thinking, “were they pretending to be blind?”

I, Bret Barry Rock, do solemnly swear that none of those things are true, but I cannot speak to the mental state of my dear wife either. She absolutely just gave Center Stage a better score than Back to the Future (and a slew of other movies that I won’t bother to mention here).

What do I do with that? Do I commit her to some movie rehab facility? Just ignore it and hope it goes away?

For this one review, I am abandoning all pretense that this will be an unbiased review in order to present the facts in the case of Back to the Future v. Center Stage.

So there you have it, 10 out of 12 categories go to Back to the Future. Were it not for my wife’s secret love of ballet and a poor marketing decision, we’d have had a clean sweep.

As for my score, I gave it 2 Stars because, frankly, to get less than that from me means that I’d rather be water-boarded than have to watch it again (looking at you, Bram Stoker’s Dracula) and it wasn’t quite that bad.

Four stars from Erin, 2 Stars from Bret for Center Stage.

Back to the Future (Erin: 3.5 Stars, Bret: 5 Stars)

Great Scott, is it true Erin only gave Back to the Future a 3.5 Star review? We’re afraid it is, Doc. To be honest, it wouldn’t shock Bret to learn that she was also responsible for the Libyans finding you. What can we say, she’s a slacker.

A complete listing of films so far that Erin considers better than Back to the Future:

  • Apollo 13
  • 3:10 to Yuma
  • Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
  • 40-Year-Old Virgin
  • About Schmidt
  • A Christmas Story
  • A Few Good Men
  • Aladdin
  • Away We Go

Hello? Hello? Anyone home? Think, Erin. People are going to watch this. Do you realize what would happen if people looked at our reviews and saw that you gave About Schmidt a higher score than Back to the Future?

In all seriousness, this is one of the best movies in our collection and, if she had access to a time machine, we’ll assume Erin would go back and give it a higher rating.

Now, make like a tree and watch our review.
