5.0 out of 5 stars The cult of celebrity worship.
I love the films Sofia Coppola comes up with! I saw "The Bling Ring" last night and was not disappointed - it is a funny, shifting, tongue-in-cheek on the mark portrayal of the madness of the celebrity obsession. The obsession that results in a feeling that we know people in the public eye, and have a right to invite ourselves to their homes. And this is what happens, a...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly Flat
Disappointing! Cast were clearly capable and director has been marvellous in the past. I just found this structurally wanting. Within minutes the characters are robbing celeb houses. What I expected (and would have preferred) would have been the build up - the first forays, the aborted first robbery, the tentative first success, then introducing sloppiness before being...

1.0 out of 5 stars Emma why, 14 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bling Ring [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
Its about a group of ladies that go on a crime spree.

Its based on a real story

I hate to say it about Emma Watson

Its terrible, her American accent is laughable, if anything my opinion of her as an actress has fallen after watching this.

Her next film needs to be astounding, to prove she is a serious actress, and not just big cleavage. Who loves micro skirts.

1.0 out of 5 stars For the good of mankind, do not watch this film., 3 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Emma Watson has really let herself down with this diabolical excuse of a film. Incredibly weak plot - kids break into house, steal stuff, get hammered, repeat. If you are looking for a film for a night in I would highly recommend avoiding this film. The only positive about this film is the boost to the counselling industry as this is NEEDED to overcome the affect of this film :)

This review is from: The Bling Ring (DVD)
Curious film based on true events. However there is only so much entering other peoples houses that can keep you occupied until you start to get bored. Nice to see Emma Watson away from Hogwarts. I think it serves the celebs right for not doing the basic security for their home and locking their doors. How stupid can you get!

This review is from: The Bling Ring [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
The Bling Ring is the tale of 5 high-school Hollywood-based friends that use the internet to check when their favourite stars are out of town working or partying. Forearmed with the knowledge the house will be empty, they target these properties with seeming ease as celebrity after celebrity either leave doors and windows unlocked or keys under the mat. The Bling Ring is based on actual events of celebrity-culture-obsessed kids breaking & entering star's houses to pilfer their property. The girls are mad for the thousands of dollars of designer dresses & handbags whilst Marc (Israel Broussard - Flipped) just wants to fit in to his new school and finally feel like he belongs.

The Bling Ring is a smart and snappy affair, well-filmed in the beautiful surrounds of the Hollywood hills and the mansions that pepper Mulholland drive, credit to director Sofia Coppola. It has a distinct style as we see the endless procession of 'selfies' make their way on to the characters FB pages and add to the hype the ring already receives at school for having the latest top-end gear. It's the stylisation that gives the experience a unique feel set to a great hip-hop based soundtrack featuring the latest & greatest.

The cast are incredible and really carry this story, their interactions are affable and genuinely believable, despite being largely two-dimensional roles - Emma Watson provides an excellent rendition of a materialistic alpha-female whilst upcoming actress Katie Chang provides the best friend to Marc's uncertain protagonist.

Extra Content: Included is the Theatrical Trailer and that's it.

Whilst it could be construed as a condemnation of the celebrity-cult that most school kids subscribe too, it falls far short of lecturing or critiquing, settling for a catty swipe at the end rather than a thorough dismissal meaning that the Bling Ring can be taken either way, you'll either love it for the endless celebrity reference and name-dropping of major brands, dresses and style, or you'll see through the materialism and be willing them to fail. Either way, it's a great film weighing in at 90 minutes. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Moronic characters who you will hate doing stupid things that you want them to get ..., 7 July 2014
This review is from: The Bling Ring (DVD)
Dreadful film. Moronic characters who you will hate doing stupid things that you want them to get caught for. Emma Watson's American accent was useless and after you've witnessed the gang ripping off one home, you don't need to see them do it again, then again, then again....yawn....zzzzzzzz

This film wasn't actually as bad as it looked, I love Emma Watson so was excited to see her in something other than Harry Potter. An easy watch, not too bad overall
