Posted Apr 29, 2009
C- Monsters vs. Aliens (2009) Danny Minton Sure there are some good jokes here, and the voice talent is stellar, but the words coming out of their mouths and the combination of all of the ridiculous elements make for a very forgettable experience that will do nothing more than serve as a 90-minute EDIT
Posted Mar 25, 2009
B Watchmen (2009) Danny Minton I can understand many of the changes made in the script, and what went in works logically, but that's a massive difference that shifted the tone of the movie. EDIT
Posted Mar 8, 2009

Posted Jan 10, 2009

Posted Oct 26, 2008

Posted May 21, 2008
B+ The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) Danny Minton Ben Barnes was a perfect Prince Caspian (maybe a little too good-looking - but I'll forgive him) and Peter Dinklage was equally strong as the dwarf Trumpkin. EDIT

Posted May 1, 2008

Posted Apr 24, 2008
A Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) Danny Minton What I am most shocked about here is how a little-known actor can actually make for such a great lead in a big movie. EDIT
Posted Apr 17, 2008

Posted Apr 10, 2008

Posted Apr 2, 2008

Posted Mar 27, 2008

Posted Jan 10, 2008
C- The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (2007) Danny Minton Kids could go with the dino-pet theme pretty easily, and adults won't hate it, but the few E.T. moments do not excuse the predictability and choppiness found throughout the entire picture. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2007

Posted Dec 20, 2007

Posted Dec 20, 2007
