THE BEST: The story was one of the best things about this film. It also had a wonderful ending. Ken was my favorite character in this movie.
THE GOOD: The cast of this film was excellent.
THE BAD: Nothing.
THE UGLY: Nothing.
THE VERDICT: Toy Story 3 was a fun and moving film to watch. It appeals to both kids and adults. I just wish more animated films were as good.
THE BONUS: What is your favorite CGI animated film?

THE BEST: The cast of this film is perfect. I loved all the characters. I think my favorite was Murdock. The Braveheart scene was classic!
THE GOOD: The first half of the movie was a lot better then the second half. I felt that it flowed better and it was less silly.
THE BAD: The last half of the movie. The stunts became silly, the action became silly, the dialogue became silly. The CGI was bad. It's like they gave up on this film.
THE UGLY: There's two things that were ugly in this film. First, the action sequences were filmed as if the director was on a permanent dose of a Monster drink. They were too fast and confusing of shots that didn't allow the viewer see the action for what it was. Second, I hated how they would act out a plan while they were explaining it to you at the same time. It loses the suspense. I always knew they were going to be successful.
THE VERDICT: A somewhat entertaining film that I don't have to see again. If you like action from start to finish no matter how silly it can get, go see this film. If you're looking for more of a smart action movie like Mission Impossible, this ones not for you. I did like the flying of the tank scene though.
THE BONUS: What is your favorite T.V adapted film?

THE BEST: Russell Brand's character Aldous Snow stole the spotlight. His character was funny and unpredictable. Paul Rudd was great in this film as well. I just wish both of these guy's were in this movie a lot more. Probably would have made the film a lot better.
THE GOOD: Mila Kunis as Rachel was perfect for this role. She is so beautiful. I love her eyes. Jonah Hill was good in this film as well. I just wish he would have been the same character in "Get Him To The Greek."
THE BAD: I'm sorry, I just didn't care for Jason Segel in this role. I think the film would have been better and funnier if Paul Rudd was playing the character of Peter Bretter. Jason is funnier when he's allowed to break free, like he did in "I Love You Man". I can picture him as Paul Rudd's surfer character though.
THE UGLY: The opening scene. Did we really need to see Jason naked? And for so long? I didn't laugh once. Oh, and then again at the end? Come on!
THE VERDICT: I thought this film was just average when I first saw it in the theater. A few chuckles here and there but nothing really funny. After seeing "Get Him To The Greek", I decided to give this film a second chance. It produced the same results. The funniest parts are when the supporting characters show up.
THE BONUS: What other supporting character stole the spotlight from the main actor?

THE BEST: Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs as Sergio Roma. He was surprisingly very funny in this movie. I don't know much about Combs but after this film I'd like to see a spin off of his character.
THE GOOD: Jonah Hill and Russell Brand work very well together. There were so many funny parts in this film involving the two. One of the funniest scenes has to be "The Jefferey" scene.
THE BAD: Unlike Russell Brand's character Aldous Snow, Jonah Hill's character Aaron Green was never explained how he became who he became after the film "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". It was like he was a brand new character. Aaron Green met Aldous Snow in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". *UPDATE* I'm in the middle of watching "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and Jonah Hill's character is named Matthew. Now I have something new to say. (See THE UGLY)
THE UGLY: There's not much that's ugly in this film. *UPDATE* When they make a spin off film from another film make sure the continuity is right and all the characters are the same. It's the same universe! Now I understand why Jonah's character didn't know Aldous, it was a completely different character. Not cool.
THE VERDICT: Overall this film was a blast. There were so many scenes that I couldn't stop laughing over. The story was good and the characters in this film were fantastic. I thought it was a lot more funnier then "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". And I loved Sarah Marshall's cameo in this film. Well... actually I love what Aldous says about her. For a fun time, I Highly recommend.
THE BONUS: What character would you like to see have his own spin off film?

THE BEST: John Krasinski Character in this film was amazingly good. I loved watching him from beginning to end. Jeff Daniels was terrific as well in the short part that he had.
THE GOOD: The story was very good. It was funny and entertaining. The different characters that you meet throughout their journey was great to see. Especially Maggie Gyllenhaal's character. The music was also good in this film.
THE BAD: It started to lose its momentum toward the end of the film. It wasn't all that bad though.
THE UGLY: Nothing too ugly about this film.
THE VERDICT: A pleasant surprise of a film. The acting was terrific and the story was moving. I knew I was going to like this film from the opening scene. I was always looking forward to what was going to happen in the next city. What the different people were like. Where were they going to choose to live? I loved the chemistry between the two main actors. I wish everybody in the world can be more like them. I highly recommend it.
THE BONUS: Are you a fan of the Office? Since this film stars John Krasinski, one of the many stars of the Office, who's your favorite character of this great t.v series? Mine is Kevin. Dwight is a close second. I just love how Kevin talks.

THE BEST: The cast of this film were outstanding. Viggo Mortensen was a joy to watch. Robert Duvall and Guy Pearce were unrecognizable in this film and the sets were amazing as well. How did they make it look so real? Good job!
THE GOOD: The film had its moments when it was suspenseful and fun to watch. Just not often enough.
THE BAD: Kodi Smit-McPhee as Viggo's son was flat out annoying. I hated it when he was on screen.
THE UGLY: Depressing film. Seemed long because there was not enough suspense and conflict. I got bored in some places thinking about, should I turn this film off? Or maybe it will get better. I kept going.
THE VERDICT: I felt I traveled a long road while watching this film. It's a hard watch because it's so depressing. I felt that there was really no conclusion to this film. It ended and... that was it. The credits rolled and I had an empty feeling inside me. I hate when that happens. Viggo Mortensen should have at least been nominated for an Academy award for this role.
THE BONUS: Whats your favorite film adapted from a book?

THE BEST: Matt Damon is such a great and wonderfully gifted actor. Anything he does, he does it 100%, even if the movie is crap. His role as Mark Whitacre is a knockout performance about a desperate man wanting more in life no matter what the cost is. And at the end of the film you get a surprised new look of Matt Damon. That was worth watching this whole film till the end.
THE GOOD: It was good to see Scott Bakula again. I don't watch much T.V, so I never really get to see him. His role as FBI agent, Brian Shepard was good and refreshing.
THE BAD: The direction of this film I thought could have been tighter. I'm not a very big Steven Soderbergh fan, and I think his best film to date was Ocean's 11. I loved the ending to that film.
THE UGLY: Why did they think they had to make this film? The story was uninteresting and confusing. Drink plenty of mountain dew while watching this film.
THE VERDICT: This film was a dud! Just when you thought you understood the film, Mark Whitacre tells more lies. This keeps going throughout the whole film. I felt like every character in this film: "What the hell is going on?" I felt like I was lied to. Stay away from this film! On second thought, maybe everything that I just wrote was nothing but lies. Maybe I really loved this film and it was really worth a score of 100%. Maybe not.
THE BONUS: What's the last bad film that you just watched?

THE BEST: The best part of this film had to be Walt Dohrn as Rumpelstiltskin. He was such a great character. Donkey and Puss in Boots is always a favorite of mine too. Oh, and I liked Rumpelstiltskin's wigs.
THE GOOD: I thought the story was clever. It kept you interested. I also liked Peter Piper and his magical flute.
THE BAD: Less humor in it then the first two Shreks. That's what made Shrek 1 a classic in the first place.
THE UGLY: I'm afraid Shrek has run its course.
THE VERDICT: I'm a big fan of Shrek. I thought that this film was better then the 3rd one but still had the same amount of humor in it that the 3rd. film had. The story is a better story then the last film. I liked how you saw a different lifestyle of all the characters that you have come to know in all the previous films. Puss in Boots was my favorite. Lazy cat. I also liked how you got to see a lot of Ogres in it, not just Shrek and Fiona. Just give this film a try and enjoy the characters in it. Like the poster says: "It ain't ogre till its ogre." Well, I think it's finally ogre. But I've always heard that before. LOL.
THE BONUS: What's your favorite Shrek character? Mine is Puss in Boots.

THE BEST: The best thing about this film was that it left off exactly were the first one began. They had the same actors reprise their roles and the suspense was still there that the first film successfully had.
THE GOOD: The plot was real good. Go back into the cave and find 5 girls that have been missing for two days now. Plus the end had a good enough twist that made me want more. I guess I'll just have to wait for the third one.
THE BAD: Some of the acting was bad, but that's what you expect from a strait to DVD film.
THE UGLY: Those creatures in the cave were very ugly. And scary.
THE VERDICT: I really enjoyed the first film and this film was surprisingly just as enjoyable. The suspense was there and like most horror sequels, this film didn't get silly. There was a great surprise about an hour into the film that I wasn't expecting. The jerk in the film ( and you'll know who he is) has a great death scene that just made me cringe. If you liked part one, give part two a shot, the monsters in this film will thank you. HA, HA, HA, HA, HA! That's suppose to be an evil laugh.
THE BONUS: Who's your favorite monster from a movie? Mine is Michael Myers.

THE BEST: The concept is the best part about this film. A forty year old virgin? That has funny written all over it. A big plus is that Steve Carell was cast as the 40 year old virgin. Perfect.
THE GOOD: The cast of this film were excellent. The writing was terrific. When the film was suppose to be funny, it was funny.
THE BAD: The film felt a little to long. I think it was because when Steve Carell started his relationship with the Ebay girl, Catherine Keener, it lost its momentum and started becoming more of a romantic comedy then just a flat laugh out loud comedy. Toward the end of the film it regained the flat laugh out loud comedy once again.
THE UGLY: The shot of Paul Rudd's ass.
THE VERDICT: Ultimately a very funny film and in my opinion Judd Apatow's best directed film, The 40 year Old Virgin will no doubt if already be a classic film. This film has it all. A great story, great characters and great situations the characters are put into. If you haven't seen this film, go rent it on DVD and be prepared to laugh a lot. If you're sensitive to bad language or a lot of sexual situations then this film is not for you, but try to make it for you.
THE BONUS: Recite your favorite line from this film.
Beth: We could do it in the... butt, if you want.
Andy Stitzer: But if I want what?
Beth: You know... butt!
Andy Stitzer: But... what?
