Movie Ratings and Reviews

Tangled
Tangled(2010)
½

It was just too cute for me.

Contagion
Contagion(2011)

You leave feeling paranoid and very slightly depressed, yet somehow it's still decent. Go figure.

The Three Musketeers

In all fairness, Matthew MacFadyen did bring a subtle dignity to the movie. I think he was the only reason I stayed in the theater.

Better Off Dead

A sit-down-and-laugh film that will have you doing just that. (=

Galaxy Quest
Galaxy Quest(1999)

Star Trek has been asking for a good parody since 1966 and some 33 years later it got just that. The situation is something familiar to Trekkers which makes the movie more believable and hilarious in the mind of the fan. Trekkers will not be disappointed.

Never Give Up Never Surrender!

The Dark Knight

Equally as great as the first.

Batman Begins

Unimaginably impressive.

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump(1994)

Brilliant setup and style.

Battle: Los Angeles
½

More sound effects than dialogue, but the plot does't need much explaining anyway. Aliens. Invasion. War. The end. See?

The Eagle
The Eagle(2011)

A story like this shouldn't be taken lightly. I think Mr. Macdonald didn't realize what potential this film could have had. Instead, it was a failing epic with bad actors. I might watch it if it comes on TV.

I Am Number Four

Liked it, but didn't love it. A few years ago I probably would have been worshipping it. The kind of sci-fantasy that kids like.

Rango
Rango(2011)

Good fun, cheap laughs, salty popcorn.

Danny Deckchair
½

The kind of ridiculous chick-flick that I like.

Super 8
Super 8(2011)

Goonies on 'roids. =)

The Adjustment Bureau
½

Men in hats control the present so that the future goes according to plan. Have to admit, I'm a little bit bothered by the idea which explains the bad rating.

Kung Fu Panda 2

Always been a fan of the fat jokes.

Unstoppable
Unstoppable(2010)
½

There I sat in the theater preparing myself for disappointment. I was ready for an overrated action movie with lame CGI, a bad underlying love story, and a watered-down soda. One cant' blame me. The aforementioned seems to be the new trend in movies of late. So imagine my surprise when Unstoppable turned out to deserve the credit it's received, kept the CGI in its place, didn't set the love story up to fail the film, and my Sprite was better than ever. All in all, it was a good experience for a good movie.

The Next Three Days
½

Chase scene that will have me watching this film again.

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy(2010)

Maybe the audience will be too distracted by pretty people inconveniently dressed in Christmas-lighted plastic suits to notice how horribly directed/written this film was!

I, for one, was not part of said audience. I saw through the clever disguise of CGI and hope that others will too.

AVP - Alien Vs. Predator
½

Surprisingly uneventful film. The dialouge, acting, and set-up all laughable; no suspense throughout.

Shallow Hal
Shallow Hal(2001)

I came. I saw. I laughed. I gave it too good of a rating.

Dirty Dancing

A light and fluffy romance with muscular dancing men in it. What's not to like? (=

Top Gun
Top Gun(1986)
½

Predictable and laughable in a sort of endearing way.

The Guardian
The Guardian(2006)

Fantastic directing and acting, this film is worth all five stars!

Minority Report

A fine film with a story based around an argument of ethics. Is it okay to convict someone of a crime they haven't committed? Through a misadventure, Officer John Anderton finds out all the facts behind the agency that is doing just that.

The Other Guys

'If I were a lion and you were a tuna, I would swim out in the middle of the ocean and freaking eat you!

Haven't laughed that hard in a long time! Could do without a few parts, but is definitely going down on my list as one of my favorite comedies.

The Soloist
The Soloist(2009)
½

Although sad, The Soloist is an engaging film that I would watch again. =)

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

Two words that completely destroyed my respect for episodes 1, 2, and 3: George Lucas.

Why were 4, 5, and 6 so great? He didn't write them.

Painstakinly mediocre and childish. The only good that came of the film was Liam Neeson. And they even *SPOILER ALERT* killed him off at the hands of a renegade Blue Man Group member. T_T

I Was a Male War Bride

As delightful and charming as Cary Grant himself. :)

Never Been Kissed

Call me a sap and you'd be right. :P

Surrogates
Surrogates(2009)
½

Poor Brucey Boy. I know someday soon he'll start landing good roles again. Until then however . . .

It was a good idea but needed a little more expansion. The effects were a bit laughable as well as some, if not most, of the dialouge. Basically, I wouldn't reccomend this movie to anyone, unless they needed a good laugh.

The A-Team
The A-Team(2010)

Outrageous and impossible. HIlarious and fun. A must see for all who've a good sense of humor.

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

I'ma gonna R-U-N-N-O-F-T!

Now that I am older, my appreciation for this film has deepened since I am able to grasp the correlaition between the events and people in it to the events and people of Homer's Odyssey. If you haven't seen this, you're in for a treat! ;) And some great music, to boot.

A Good Year
A Good Year(2006)
½

Not terrible, but left me feeling restless. I understood beforehand that it was a sit-down feel-good film, I just feel it was missing . . . something. At any rate, I can't complain too much since it was two hours of Russell Crowe. =D...

North Shore
North Shore(1987)
½

LOL! Totally lame, dude. Seriously bra, not cool. The dialogue and everything with it totally, like un-radical. Not gnarly, yo. Not gnarly. \m/

The Boys Are Back

One of the most depressing, gut-wrenching, tear-jerking, heart-breaking films I stumbled on by taking too seriously the critics' claims that it was 'feel-good'.

Ella Enchanted
½

Childish and fun. :)

Robin Hood
Robin Hood(2010)
½

Under the direction of Ridley Scott and Co., this Robin Hood stayed as close to history as a legend could get. This movie was an introduction into the world of Robin Hood, a get-to-know-your-characters film, not unlike that of Batman Begins.

Sherlock Holmes

The plot wasn't phsycologically thrilling, but was a nice step for Guy Ritchie's take on the Holmes' franchise. The cast was absolutely fantastic in their characters. Jude Law is the perfect Watson.

The X-Files - Fight the Future

Will I like this less or more after watching the series?

Bounce
Bounce(2000)
½

Would I have liked this more if I hadn't been expecting romantic comedy? Probably.

Murphy's Romance
½

A few lines that have scarred me for life. O-O

X2: X-Men United

One of the few sequals that out-does the first.

License to Drive
½

I kicked off my geeked-out '80's weekend with this movie. It's a typical outrageous, teen-flick which is great if you like over-the-top type of humor.

Clash of the Titans
½

CGI doesn't make a movie, boys. Remember that. Plot developement, character connection, and dialouge do.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
½

I can see where Mr. Freudenthal was going with this, he just didn't quite get it there.

X-Men
X-Men(2000)

How can you not love this movie?

Logan: 'You actually go outside in these things?'

Scott: 'What would prefer? Yellow spandex?'

The Invention of Lying
½

Wow, watching a movie with no expectations changes everything!

Rudy
Rudy(1993)

Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!

The Blind Side

Don't watch if you're expecting a football movie.

Cool Runnings

Irv: "Our Father, who art in Calgary, Bobsled be thy name. Thy kingdom come, gold medals won, on Earth as it is in Turn Seven. With Liberty and Justice for Jamaica and Haile Selassie. Amen."

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Wonderful depiction of a great story. A must see! =D

Adventures in Babysitting

*diesaslowandpainfuldeath*

Remember the Titans

Boone: You know who your daddy is, doncha? Gary, if you want to play on this football team, you answer me when I ask you who is your daddy? Who's your daddy, Gary? Who's your daddy?

xD

State of Play

Pulls you in with Russell Crowe's charismatic character and leaves you hooked to the end.

Enchanted
Enchanted(2007)

Am I the only one that was completely bored watching this?

Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian

Bigger, but not better. Faster, but not exciting. More characters and 'plot developement', but not entertaining.

Avatar
Avatar(2009)
½

Predictable, as James Cameron's movies are, but still exciting and fast-paced. There were a few things I disagreed with: 1) the plot was unoriginal. 2) Bullets couldn't break the aircraft windows, yet the Na'vi's arrows could. WTFork? 3) was killing the Na'vi really neccasary? With such an advancement in technology, you'd think strategy would have improved as well.

Up
Up(2009)

I tried to hate. Tried my darndest, but . . . I . . . couldn't. x'(. The old person/litte kid connection was down pat. The dogs' thi- Squirrel! . . . nking, personalities, and the way they acted: right on target. So sweet and hilarious, I loved it!

500 Days of Summer

The ending comes slowly and predictably. What's left is entertaining, but nothing really special.

Strictly Ballroom
½

Boy meets girl. They dance. The end.

Happy Feet
Happy Feet(2006)

Meh. Nothing special.

10 Things I Hate About You
½

Rent it. Watch it. Love it. I guarantee it.

A Knight's Tale
½

Have to lurve British humor. (;

Romeo and Juliet

The best adaption of Romeo and Juliet to date.

Runaway Bride

One of my favorite romantic comedies and one I will be watching again and again!

Phoebe in Wonderland
½

Had great great character, but yet was terribly mundane.

Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
½

Slow, redundant, and easily forgetable.

My Sister's Keeper
½

An irritatingly heart-breaking tear-jerker between an awkward family and their dying member. I do wish they had exagerated on Alec Baldwin's role, though. His character had the potential, but wasn't enough of a presense to really connect with the audience.

Carriers
Carriers(2009)

No suspense or thrills. Not much by way of dialouge either.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua

Hey guys! Look what I just pulled outta my butt. Let's sell it!

^ That is exactly what Disney has become and I know that's exactly how this movie came about.

Definitely, Maybe
½

Tantalizingly slow and unfunny. People! Sex does not equal humor! Especially coming from an eleven-year-old child. T__T

The Mighty Ducks

I know it's mostly sentimental, but I absolutely love this movie! One of the last good films Disney's made.

S.W.A.T.
S.W.A.T.(2003)
½

Better than my expectations.

Zoolander
Zoolander(2001)

Matilda: I . . . was the fat girl in school.

Derek: EW!

Only part I actually laughed at.

2012
2012(2009)

I'm more of a post-apoctalyptic fan myself, but seeing as I wasn't expecting much I guess it's worth at least one go-around.

Dead Poets Society

Worth seeing a million times over!

The Wizard of Oz

I'm not one for classics, but in light of the time period it was made, it is fantastic.

Bolt
Bolt(2008)

Wonderful and hilarious! Left a Disney after-taste in my mind though. :/

Across the Universe

Story told via Beatles' songs? Done amazingly well!

Echelon Conspiracy

Just as ba- nix that. Worse than Eagle Eye. No action, no storyline, no audience engagement, it was awful.

Fanboys
Fanboys(2008)

Could have done without the humping, loved the bit with Shatner, and was glad the sad parts weren't overly dramatic.

Reign of Fire

Awesome story and great directing, this is a flm totally worth watching!

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)

It gets better and better everytime I see it. One of the few movies that can claim to have a flawless cast. McCoy for the win! ;)

As Good as It Gets

Awkwardly real and sentimental. (-;

Bottle Shock
Bottle Shock(2008)

Nearly an hour in and nothing.

Prom Night
Prom Night(2008)

Suspenseful, but typical, predictable, and a bit boring.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Great and fast paced with the exception of the slow ending.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

You can watch the Fellowship, skip over this, and finish the Return of the King without missing much. But that's not always a bad thing, for this film was exciting, mind-riveting, brilliant, and some-what comedic thanks to Gimli.

The Brothers Bloom
½

Great to see Mark Ruffalo in a film again. Good movie, by the way, with a bit of a melancholy ending.

9
9(2009)
½

Though pleasant on the eyes, it lacked depth for the mind.

Much Ado About Nothing
½

. . . Secondly, I can see why people like this.
. . . Sixthly, it had a great cast.
. . . Thirdly, reccomendable to 'classic' fans.
. . . And, er, in conclusion, just not my cup of tea. :/

Iron Man
Iron Man(2008)

One of the best of '08. Despite Gwyneth Paltrow.

Big Fish
Big Fish(2003)

Beautiful telling of a wonderful story. (=

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

I wouldn't reccomend it. Had it's parts, but very few of them.

The Three Musketeers

I was prepared to hate this movie. Though, despite the presence of Disney, it wasn't very Disney-ish. It was great, in fact. Worth four stars.

About a Boy
About a Boy(2002)

It dragged a little in parts, but it was so sweet! Hugh Grant is FINE with his hair a little shorter...

Eragon
Eragon(2006)

As is the case a good part of the time, the book was much better.

You Don't Mess With the Zohan

Can't believe I ever saw this. Sandler, get in touch with your roots. Like the Waterboy, why can't more Happy Madison films be like that?

The Time Traveler's Wife

Worth seeing at least once. Though, I won't be buying it. :/

Groundhog Day
½

Fun and interesting, this flilm will/can get you thinking of your own life. It was actually rather beautiful in a semi-philosiphacal type of way. I enjoyed the storline very much, and the movie as a whole was nicely put. I will be watching this again.

Mad Money
Mad Money(2008)

Not the best, but I found it a bit amusing.

Eagle Eye
Eagle Eye(2008)
½

I'm skepitical about the computer/terrorist, but other than that this film is worth seeing at least once.

The Transporter

Typical guy movie. Loose threads, no sense, explosions, and a damsel in distress.

T______________T

Monsters vs. Aliens

Kiefer is GAWG-eous animated. xD

But seriously a hilarious movie. One of my favorites for sure. :)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
½

I liked it for a movie I was expecting not to like.

For Love of the Game

Very likeable. Costner fits greatly into his character. :)

Far and Away
Far and Away(1992)

Could it last any longer?

Miss Potter
Miss Potter(2007)

Would not watch again.

Persepolis
Persepolis(2007)
½

Not my type of film, but I enjoyed it for what it was.

Moonstruck
Moonstruck(1987)

Blah. Blah. Blah. It stunk. Blah. Blah. Blah.

:)

Mean Girls
Mean Girls(2004)

Can't believe I've actually seen this. >__>"

The Bourne Identity

Intense and suspensful. Action when it's called for, and villains when their not.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend

'No! Don't go to Salt Lake. Utah sucks!'

^ Little do they know. ;-)

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Arthur: Ford?

Ford: Yeah?

Arthur: I think I'm a sofa.

Love the 'trilogy', love the movie. :D

Get Smart
Get Smart(2008)
½

Had my fair amount of laughs in this one.

Taken
Taken(2009)

Loved it! Neeson kicks butt in this one.

Wild Hogs
Wild Hogs(2007)

Makes me laugh every time.

The Lake House
½

Predictable with many loose threads.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
½

Not the best out of the originals, but still great.

Han for the win!

Live Free or Die Hard

Not for intellectuals. Great if you're just looking for something fun and fast paced.

I, Robot
I, Robot(2004)

Fantastic! Smith brings on the action and suspense for this futuristic thriller.

The Black Stallion

Just not my cup of tea. :-/

The Princess Bride

Lovable, but probably won't be watching it again.

Coraline
Coraline(2009)

Enjoyable film, likeable characters (especially the cat ^___^), and fun animation.

The Wedding Date
½

The story didn't really seem to go anywhere until towards the end. Pretty boring and forgetable as well.

The Fugitive
The Fugitive(1993)

Flawless! See it right away!

A Cinderella Story
½

How many stories of Cinderella are there going to be?

Knowing
Knowing(2009)
½

Interesting, but disappointing. It had to end, of course, but aliens? Really?

The Blob
The Blob(1958)

A perfect movie for MST3K. ^___^

Swing Vote
Swing Vote(2008)

Ecletic and funny, Costner and Hopper, need I say more?

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Very good story with a some-what cliched plot as our beloved Captain Jack Sparrow points out at various times throughout. Lovable and hatable characters, action, and one-liners make this a great film to see.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers
½

For the time it was created in, very good stuff. I'll throw in an extra star just for the ending!

The Proposal
The Proposal(2009)
½

Easily enjoyable, yet easily forgetable.

24: Redemption

Bauer's back! After a grueling 18 months of no airing, 'Redemption' kicks off the long-awaited 7th season with a bang.

Ground Control

Not the best movie in a sense, but oddly enjoyable.

Funny Farm
Funny Farm(1988)
½

I didn't like the plot, seemingly original just not that great.

The Little Mermaid
½

So adorable! One of the best movies of my childhood.

Airheads
Airheads(1994)

Short movie yet seemed to drag on into oblivian.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop
½

Like most Happy Madison films of late, this movie had its parts.

Marley & Me
Marley & Me(2008)

A good adaption of a great book! A little long though.

Ocean's Eleven

Eye-candy galore!

Pitt and Clooney team up for worth-while action ride that will leave you wondering about your own security. . .

Super Size Me

Sue the bastards!

What a message about America. Wasting away in our own filth. Go us! XD

Terminator Salvation

The action and eye-candy made this movie totally worth it! :D

I'll Be There

Despite my professed love for Craig Ferguson, I must say that this movie sucked. I just could not get into it. Charlotte Church is a great singer, but she can't act. :(

Matchstick Men

Clever and well writen. Give this movie a try.

Run Fatboy Run

A great comedy done in good taste. Worth watching again and again! I truly hope to see Simon Pegg in more films. Hollywood could use a guy like him.

Serenity
Serenity(2005)

Epic! Just epic.

The Benchwarmers

Those butts! You could've gone to the superbowl!

So many one-liners and inside jokes, I just loved it the whole way through.

Casino Royale

Connery meet your maker.

Quantum of Solace

Bond is back and delivers more than ever before! Awesome action and one-liners that make this movie worth watching.

Big Liar on Campus

Predictable. Uninteresting plot. Seen a dozen movies like it.

The Rocker
The Rocker(2008)

Not as predictable, (got the ending on the third guess), and pretty funny in my opinion.

The Cowboy Way

Cowboys are hot. :P

^ Except Kiefer Sutherland. He has a moustache for Pete's sake!

Clueless
Clueless(1995)
½

Obviously not going to be the best film in the history of the world, but it's cute enough for go-around. ^____^

Rain Man
Rain Man(1988)
½

Fantastic. That's all. :)

MirrorMask
MirrorMask(2005)

Amazingly done! Worth at least one go-around, if not just for the amazing effects.

Land Before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration
½

Now I finally see where I got the quote: 'Me no know' from!

And Littlefoot has a dad?! O___O

Ghost Town
Ghost Town(2008)
½

Amazing. Hilarious. Brilliant. A must see!

Lakeview Terrace

Awful! It repeated itself over and over and over again. If you get a chance to see it pass it up!

It's really about an increasingly annoying and creepy character annoying and creeping out his neighbors. Also, it NEVER ENDS!!

Third worst film ever.

Babylon A.D.
Babylon A.D.(2008)

What was this even about? Did not explain enough of the story or plot for the audience.

Waste. Of. Time.

The Sentinel
The Sentinel(2006)

Not the best in the whole world. If you're looking for action, don't rent this.

Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
½

Not bad at all. I actually really enjoyed it, and if you're being skeptical by the Plot Summary here on Flix, don't be. It doesn't really credit the film with what it should, and doesn't nearly explain it for what it is.

My Summary: Give it a chance.

Mrs. Doubtfire

Wonderfully scripted! It could just be my soft spot for Robin Williams speaking, but I just absolutely love this movie. Once it gets near the ending, though, I lose some interest in it. But oh well, I still love it. :)

Bedtime Stories
½

BEFORE: I never thought I'd see the day Adam Sandler would be in a Disney film. I'm still waiting for the anti-clamatic explosion.

I must say, though, I'm feeling extremely curious to see what it's all about.

AFTER: Ha! Could have been my mood, could have been the Dr. Pepper, but I found Bedtime Stories to be really funny. It was interesting to see Sandler and his buddies in a PG movie, but he pulled it off. Though, the plot of the film left some loose threads, it was fantastic considering the age group it was aiming for.

Buy it? Maybe.
See it? Definately.
Recomend it? I do.

Envy
Envy(2004)
½

Nick and Tim are two guys stuck at the same dead-end job. Unlike Tim who just wants to get by with what he's got, Nick is constantly throwing get-rich-quick ideas out in the open hoping something will come up that may work. And guess what? He does! Of course when offered, Tim declines going in 50/50 with his best friend's crazy antics. And totally misses out. While Nick is living it up in his new mansion, new clothes, and new race track, Tim is suffering in envy, when he gets some help from J-Man, a bum who talks a drunk Tim into a tailspin of crazy "coincidences". And I'll leave the rest up to you. :)

The Island
The Island(2005)
½

Few bloopers here and there. The plot was great and appealing but the ending wasn't totally substantial as it probably should have been. Other than that, The Island is a movie worth seeing.

WALL-E
WALL-E(2008)
½

I won't go as far as to say it was an extremely great film, though it was pretty funny. Wall-E is a great family film, though I wouldn't watch it more than twice. It had a somewhat extreme take on the future of humans but sadly one that, if you think about it, isn't too far off. A cute little romanitc film with (of course) some morals in between.

Hancock
Hancock(2008)
½

Action, Comedy, or Drama? What is this supposed to be?! It should have exaggerated on who the super-heros were and exactly who and what were after them. I mean, the guy with the claw? Where in the name of all things sensible did he come from?

Too many questions unanswered for me to have any other opinion than, it's worth seeing . . . once.

Nim's Island
Nim's Island(2008)
½

A very sweet heart-warming story, that really wasn't quite as I'd expected. Of course I wasn't expecting much so the film honestly did blow me away.

Be Kind Rewind
½

So did not build up to the hype I made in my head. T__T

Martian Child
½

Beautiful! And wonderfully so. Unlike any drama I've ever seen in the sense that I loved it. Thought-provoking quotes, and a fresh plot-line make this film totally awesome!

See No Evil, Hear No Evil

Caught this on TV. Pretty good, loved the humor. Was boring in more than some parts though.

Bee Movie
Bee Movie(2007)

Horribly boring. T__T

Cinderella Man

Loved it! Beautiful, graceful, and powerful this film is more than worth your time.

John Q
John Q(2002)

Tragic are the hipocrisies, federal loopholes, and flat out lies of the government that affect only us and the benefits they recieve for our stress, money, and time.

Pizza My Heart

I'm such a sap for chick-flicks!

A Fish Called Wanda
½

I watched this on TV while I was cleaning, so didn't catch much. Thus I rate on what I saw.

I'm Reed Fish

A pretty fun, easy going movie with a light plot and little, yet appealing twists! Nicely done, I would reccomend this for the family-value types.

P.S. I Love You

These types of movies are really not my cup of tea.

Stardust
Stardust(2007)

Robert De Niro as a cross dresser. Love it! XD

Chicken Little

Yet another movie ruined by Disney.

10,000 B.C.
10,000 B.C.(2008)

The effects were great! The acting was fine! The plot was interesting! But the movie sucked. . . >__>

The Pursuit of Happyness

I was actually sort of disapointed with this movie. =(

Driving Lessons

Blah, what was the point?

The Marine
The Marine(2006)

John Cena did impress me! He didn't suck quite as bad as I expected. Though, still bombed the whole acting part. The movie itself SUCKED! It was one of the most horrible movies I've ever seen. They tried to use humor but I could never figure it out. I would not recomend this movie to anyone.

Déjà Vu
Déjà Vu(2006)
½

For some reason the title totally decieved me and I was cringing when my sister brought it home for us to watch, but I am so glad I saw. It was fantastic, totally reccomendable!! Except that Denzel took off the same shirt twice, just watch and you'll see what I mean.

Armageddon
Armageddon(1998)

What can I say? Good action, good lines, good movie. :)

The Wooden Man's Bride (Wu kui)

AVOID IF POSSIBLE!

Worst foreign film I have ever seen and secod worst movie of all time.

House of D
House of D(2004)

Wonderfully done, and deeply touching in the most innocent of ways. I could do without the parts of narrating, but that was the only problem I had with this film. Sincere and lovable, this is a truly great flim.

Pete's Dragon
½

I deny that I like it now, but I used to watch this all the flippin' time when I was younger.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry

Hilarious! I am embarrased to say that I laughed my way into a fit with this one. Something about that dirty humor. . .The film was great, especially if you're into Sandler's newer work. I enjoyed Kevin James a lot more than I thought I would and am looking forward to seeing more of what he can bring to the big-screen!

Space Jam
Space Jam(1996)

Brings me back to the good ol' days. . .

Goal! The Dream Begins (Goal!: The Impossible Dream)

Average every day soccer movie with the same predictable plot. Though, what it lacked in originality it made up for in eye candy.

Evolution
Evolution(2001)

This took a while for me to review. it was a long haul waiting for all the awesomeness to sink in.

Duchovny and Jones seem to be a comedic-duo made in heaven! Scott was a nice bonus to the hilarious chaos, though Julianne Moore's character wasn't much help in the humor factor, her strict, head-strong presence made an absolutely unavoidable target for jokes. Evolution is one of the very few remaining comedies that actually sticks to the plot and yet does not let up on the hilarity of it. Very well done and thought out, this film is going straight to my favorites. And trust me, it takes a lot from a movie to make it there. ;)

Jumper
Jumper(2008)
½

I'm glad I didn't waste my money upon seeing it in the Theater or buying it. The film could have gone in so many directions, been great in so many ways, but it stuck to an uninteresting plot that made sense, but was boring. For a second thing, Hayden Christensen has about the acitng ability of a pineapple. I won't be watching this again and am glad to say that.

Lars and the Real Girl

Not as humorous as it would seem, Lars and the Real Girl is actually a rather sweet story. With more pleasant charm than inuendo, it makes for the perfect feel-good movie. I felt like crying more than laughing, due to the heart-breaking perfomances of Gosling, Mortimer, Schneider, and of course the ever-glorious Patricia Clarkson. I'd reccomend this for the kind-at-heart and date-movie types.

Titan A.E.
Titan A.E.(2000)
½

I actually really enjoyed this one! Back-stabbing, heart-stopping, and oohing-ahhing is definately what this film has! A great little sci-fi adventure that can be watched time and again!

Vantage Point

A bit disapointed with the way it was edited. Basically it showed the five defferent points of view and then ended. So, you just watched pretty much the same movie five times. The acting was great and Quaid was just fabulous, but I won't be buying this one.

Firewall
Firewall(2006)

Plot:

Jack Stanfield is a bank security expert, whose specialty is designing infallible theft-proof financial computer systems. But there's a hidden vulnerability in the system he didn't account for - himse...( read more )lf. When a ruthless criminal mastermind kidnaps his family, Jack is forced to find a flaw in his system and steal $100 million. With the lives of his wife and children at stake and under constant surveillance, he has only hours to find a loophole in the thief's own impenetrable system of subterfuge and false identities to beat him at his own game.

My Taking:

Amazing! Loved every minute of it! Paul Bettany as outstanding as the role of Bill Cox, the master operator for all the chaos brought into Jack Stanfield's (Ford) life. Harrison Ford was great too, as usual, as the quick-thinking family-man that saves the day! (Not really a spoiler right? Anyone could have guessed) A fantastic movie that is going straight to my favorites.

No Reservations
½

Very cute! But cute's not totally my style. >__>.

The Actors/Acting: It was a very nicely done film, Jones and Eckhart complimented eachother very well, and Breslin is on her way up! The acting wasn't something you could complain about.

The Movie: Was a nice chick-flick but I wouldn't reccomend seeing it with kids. The directing was great and my props to the plot!

The X-Files: I Want to Believe (The X Files 2)

Just saw it today and had the impression that they should have waited a while before releasing it. My reason: because it was such an excellent movie, but no one will realize it because it came about with other greats that most people will be seeing instead. I never saw the first one, never seen the series, but now I am most definately interested! A great film given the chance and needs more attention than it's getting.

Robots
Robots(2005)

A smexy look into the world of hilarious robot antics!

Origin: Spirits of the Past

I love the anime drawings, just not a fan for the movies. It was more irratating as almost all the girls' voices were high pitched and annoying. The plot was interesting but I just didn't enjoy the film much.

Sydney White
Sydney White(2007)

A sweet little comedy that revolves around the world of a group of outcasts, that by some chance end up with Sidney White at their door. With the help of Syd (Bynes) and her gogeous boy toy, Tyler (Long), they conquer the school elections and take out Greek Row's long run.

Holiday Inn
Holiday Inn(1942)

I now am in love. . . with Bing Crosby's voice! I was more transfixed on his singing then the movie. Speaking of which, the film was very fun. It was simple, family like, and just enjoyable! Though the title may be decieving, the main focus is not on the holidays, rather it is on two showmen that always seem to like the same girl. Ted (Astaire), even went as far as taking Jim's (Crosby), fiance right from under his nose! Somewhat depressed Jim quits the show life and enters the simple life. Farming. Turns out it was way too much for him to handle and wasn't what he'd thought it'd be at all. He then decides to turn the farmhouse into an Inn. Holiday Inn to be exact. The purpose was for it to only be open fifteen holidays a year, hence the name, so Jim could live comfortably work-free for the rest 350 days. Meanwhile, a young lady is trying to find her way into show biz when she meets a man that gives her Jim's number and address to the Inn. They fall in love and plan to be married when, of course, Ted show's up drunk, dances a little, and then steals Jim's new girl. But the love triangle is not over yet. Oh no! Jim realizes the mistakes he's been making and goes after his girl! But seriously it is a really great flick and is so watchable.

Penelope
Penelope(2006)
½

I must agree with the rest of Flixster and settle on 3 1/2 stars. Penelope is a very sweet movie with great dialogue, funny quirks, and an interesting twist at the end. To say the least. Christina Ricci is a very interesting actress herself, so the role of Penelope the Pig Nosed Girl seemed to melt on her every move. My compliments to James McAvoy as well. He did his part extremely well while still looking great! The film and plot are simple and enjoyable and this film is easy to watch and would be great for any family. My reccomendations to it!

Drillbit Taylor

I laughed. I cried. It was better than 'Cats!'! No but seriously, this film was very funny and touching to say the least. Owen was fantastic and tamed the mood considerably. He kept the film in line and was hilarious doing it! It's cliche to say I laughed my way through this, but I gotta say that I did. For the most part anyway. It was a fun film, had a great cast of characters, and was very enjoyable. I would most definately watch this again! And might I say that I am looking forward to seeing more of Josh Peck? He has got potential!

You, Me and Dupree
½

Not the greatest film ever, but it was great! It's a homely type movie with acceptable humor, just not my type of funny. Owen was great as Dupree, Kate was great but still has yet to wow me, Matt was fine, and Michael was very good at being the somewhat evil father-in-law. All in all it was a very good film, not something I'd watch again and again, just something I'd watch from time to time. I would reccomend it just not as my first suggestion.

Flubber
Flubber(1997)
½

It's funny that as you get older the movies you used to love with all your heart don't seem to hold the same magical power as they did when you were young. Which after seeing this again I had hoped to get that feeling, just to hold onto it for that night but it didn't come. I was devestated but kept trying to feel that feeling, get in the mood as if I were 6 again. I finally started watching it with a different view point. A younger one. And it worked! The magic came back! I can't believe how much of an effect movies can keep on you, even if you're young. 'Flubber' is definately a classic and is so inspiring in some odd sense of the word that I find I could so watch this again!

Aladdin
Aladdin(1992)

Favorite cartoon movie EVER! So loving and lighthearted this film a fascination in itself. Funny and meaningful it is truly a work of art! Genie was the most lovable and most easy to watch as he danced around on screen granting wishes and being smart-mouthed made him my favorite character of all time! Aladdin was my biggest crush when I was young. I wanted to be just like him with Abu and everything! Which led to so many great adventures as a kid. Jasmine was and will always be the ultimate Disney Princess. She has a pet tiger and that's enough. :P The movie alone stands to time indefinate as the most original and inspiring film of all time. Everyone young and old should see this film!

Miss Congeniality

Being very fun and quirky, this film is most enjoyable! Bullock gives Gracie Hart a unique and original spukiness of her own. Her smart, quick remarks fell hand in hand with Eric's (Bratt) teasing and contagious smirk very well. The movie was well thought out but still held the light and upbeat theme it advertised. The casting was good, the plot nice, and the lines funny and interesting. I do reccomend it!

Roxanne
Roxanne(1987)

I love Steve Martin, don't get me wrong, but this film just didn't have it. You know, the thing that takes a movie from just being a movie to making it unforgetable? Well, it didn't have that. It was most forgetable, a bit enjoyable, but didn't catch the audience's attention like it should have. The film did make a good impression of love but still lacked great humor.

The Bucket List

Beauty wrapped in grace! Not only is that the way to decribe this film, it is also the link between Nicholson and Freeman's characters. Nicholson is the 'beauty' in the way he wants to live and his outgoing spirit whereas Freeman's 'grace' enters his lines with each word read. The way he elegantly and inconspicously turns Nicholson to see a new meaning of life while in turn Nicholson helps Freeman feel the way to live. A truly beautiful piece Reiner has delivered us! The plot itself was well thought out and simple, it came to the point and was hurled to the audience's attention in the most joyful way. Touching and inspiring without being sappy, this was a truly magnificent film!

Raising Arizona

I liked the simplistic feel of the movie. It was edgy without being dramatic which complimented the irony of the film very well. I would have personally prefered John Goodman as Hi and Cage as Gale, but that's just me. Casting Goodman was brilliant as every film I see with him in it always gives me a sense that the movie will get better. The actors did very well with the exception of Holly Hunter and the film was overall laughable, but like a lot of movies you've got to be in the right mood. I only watch this film occasionally, but I would reccomend it!

Juno
Juno(2007)
½

It didn't add up to all the hype supporting it. Still good, but a bit long. It's one of those movies you can watch again and again! I am now looking forward to seeing more of Ellen Page as she has a lot of potential that you just don't see too much of any more in young actors/actresses. She potrayed her character excellently and with definate spunk! I liked the way it was directed, I was just hoping for something a little more funnier and shorter. All in all it is a great film and I would recomend it.

Hook
Hook(1991)

Magic! Loved every moment of it! Williams was great as the Pan who lost his touch, Roberts made an okay Tink, and Hoffman was amazing as usual. Casting him as Hook was brilliant! The film came with it's own personality, throwing in little things at the right time, and roller-coastered in and out of the original plot making it an original from Spielberg.

Beetlejuice
Beetlejuice(1988)
½

I love this show more than anything! Wow it was just so funny. I felt bad for Beetle Juice at the end though. And can anyone tell me why he couldn't say his own name?

Billy Madison

Adam Sandler is a genius at heart!

The War
The War(1994)

I loved this film. The acting was terrific! (My compliments to Costner and Wood) It tore at my heart in some parts which just comes with good directing, and in the end gave me a sense of 'the simple life'.

Unbreakable
Unbreakable(2000)
½

It caught me off guard be as the drama wasn't quite intense as I'd expected. It also through me off when the huge climax, the moment during the show we were waiting for, what the film had been building up too, was a little...disapointing. Which made it shocking, in turn making this film overall interesting. They walked a very fine line doing the film like this but it paid off. It was most interesting and that made it watchable and made it stick to you as a person. It still weighs on my mind now and again but I am very glad I took the time to watch it.

The Truman Show

This has to be one of the sadest shows I've ever seen. Just the thought that people couldn't care less about him, another living person, so long as they've got something to entertain themselves? JERKS all of them! And the part where he meets his "Dad' after all this time, I really almost cried.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
½

'The heart Mr. Jones! Cover your heart!'

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I absolutely LOVE all the Indiana Jones movies!

Spaceballs
Spaceballs(1987)

This film was very entertaining. I probably won't watch it again any time soon, but it is watchable.

Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves!
½

Oh! I loved this movie! Much better than the first film, and just plain fun!

Snowboard Academy

A great flick to be watched by boarders around the world. Unoriginal plot, but very great humor, and perfect timing by Jim Varney.

The Spongebob Squarepants Movie

I worship this movie! Well, maybe not worship but for a movie following a continued series it was done well.

Robin Hood: Men in Tights

This has to be one of Mel Brooks best spoofs yet.

Waterworld
Waterworld(1995)
½

I very much enjoyed this one! Costner had a more edgier touch then what the we're used to but pulled it off well. The film itself was very improbable but pulled that off in a style of its own.

Disturbia
Disturbia(2007)

Shia is most definatly coming to the Hollywood scene!

The Movie: Lacked anything 'scary' and wasn't all that suspenseful. It dragged and took you no where fast.

RocketMan
RocketMan(1997)

Sweet Alaskan Asparagus Tips!

Men in Black
Men in Black(1997)

One of the greatest movies ever! Jones and Smith are hilarious together! Everybody has to see this movie if they haven't already.

Hero
Hero(1992)

Hoffman fantastic as usual! You really get a feel for Bernie, (Hoffman), and could just strangle John Bubber! (Garcia) - Although he really is a great guy in this film. Geena Davis' acting was fine, nothing special but it wasn't horrible. The movie in itself was done well, it hit on some things that could have added a little bit to the plot, but other than that I will most definately be watching this again!

I Am Sam
I Am Sam(2001)
½

Lovely! One of my favorites and done in great taste! Sean Penn redefines himself as the great actor he is.

Sweet Home Alabama
½

I can watch this over and over again! Amazingly sweet and humorful, I seriously can't get enough! And that Josh Lucas...*sighs wishfully*

The Italian Job
½

I enjoyed it but not as much as I thought I would. It's quick paced and to the point which was enjoyable but it lacked some action for it to be a total 'action' flick.

Shutter
Shutter(2008)
½

Not very thrilling. More ugly than entertaining. Wasn't really scary; a little intense at the most.

Joshua Jackson was all right, very hot! But, all the actors held a lack of getting the audience into the movie.

Kinky Boots
Kinky Boots(2006)

Hilarious and done in good taste. It was cute in a moving way if you looked past the humor and come on, with a title like that, who couldn't want to see it?

The Waterboy
The Waterboy(1998)

An Adam Sandler classic!

Speak
Speak(2005)

I wouldn't watch it again, but I would re-read the book!

King Kong
King Kong(2005)

Jack Black went for the shot and made it! Though I gotta be honest too long, too boring, not enough umph to make a go for it.

The Last Mimzy

The kids were okay, I missed Rainn's usual oddness from The Office, but maybe now he won't be as type-cast. Original plot, which was nice, but still not quite the best.

Must Love Dogs

Tell me why I always get John Cusack and Keanu Reeves mixed up? Oh well, anyway it didn't leave a big impression on me.

The Village
The Village(2004)

Good suspense, not a fan of the ending though.

I Am Legend
I Am Legend(2007)
½

I absolutely loved everything about it. I really liked the way they potrayed the vampires, different than how they are usually stereo-typed to look, and a very great job on realistics of it. Except the end. It went faster then the rest of the plot, and I didn't like how Anna and Ethan popped out of nowhere and took the ending, it seemed to trail from the movie. But that didn't ruin it for me, I mean, it was so amazing and suspensful I couldn't let the end bust it. All in all I really, really liked it.
But still I'd watch it a million times! And of course my sister cried through the whole thing...

Chalk
Chalk(2007)

Wasn't what I'd expected, but it was all right.

Dan in Real Life
½

Oh my gosh! I went to see this. It was so true. Really anytime you need some cheering up this movie will so totally do it.

Liar Liar
Liar Liar(1997)

It suprised me that I was suprised. I was expecting it to drag in places and have too many 'sad' scenes, but I was oh so wrong. Carrey gets me EVERY time. He's so good at what he does and seemed to just melt into the role. He can always, ALWAYS pull those perfect faces in the most perfect timing. It was almost too funny, definately one of my favorites! Must See and I mean it!

The Simpsons Movie

It was great! Though the plot could've been better the humor totally made up for it.

I loved the part where they make fun of you for seeing it!

The Astronaut Farmer

A great family film. I probably wouldn't watch it more than twice, but younger kids would probably think differently.

My favorite part was the joke about the government not being able to find a WMA! So funny! :)

Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Not at all as good as the first, but still fun.

Stick It
Stick It(2006)

Not my absolute favorite but it's still floating around in my list. : )

Happy Gilmore

A little predictable, but still really funny.

Cars
Cars(2006)

hoped it would be funnier

My Dog Skip
