He's Just Not That Into You
½

This was a pretty good movie although some people's behavior was a bit annoying. But hey, that is life.

Yes Man
Yes Man(2008)
½

This was a cute film and one of his better humorous ones.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno
½

This was a funny movie with a nice ending. It was a bit more risque than I had expected so be sure young audiences are not around.

Star Trek: First Contact
½

This was the best of the 'Next Generation' films. The borg make for an exciting foe. A little humor is added with the troubled attempt to make first contact.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

The best of the original Star Trek movies. Khan makes a formidable foe and Kirk pulls out his tricks for some exciting battles between the starship crews.

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)
½

This is a great revival of the series with a plausable excuse for alterations to the 'history' of Star Trek while going back to the beginnings of the original Enterprise crew. Hopefully they can maintain the momentum in the sequels.

The X-Files: I Want to Believe (The X Files 2)
½

This was much better than the first X-Files movie since they got rid of the conspiracy story and went with your basic murder mystery thriller, with a touch of the paranormal to justify the X-Files connection.

Twilight
Twilight(2008)

This was a decent story but some of the acting was cold (no pun intended) and some of the effects were hokey. That being said, I will watch the sequels to see if the popularity of this film causes the series to improve and to see where the plot hooks lead to that were left dangling in this film.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
½

This was an interesting tale of an unusual nature that adresses life's course from a different perspective. It was pretty good and a bit sad.

The Spirit
The Spirit(2008)

This movie was at least humorous to watch. I was expecting something a little more knew I shouldn't expect too much. At least I got a laugh watching this film and it wasn't a complete waste of time.

The Day the Earth Stood Still

This was a pretty good remake of the old original film with a focus on current issues.

Body of Lies
Body of Lies(2008)
½

This was pretty good. A little frustrating how they work against each other but interesting.

In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale
½

I was expecting a lot less from this movie due to other reviews but it was actually ok to watch overall. There were a few areas that could have been cut out and actually improve the movie. It seemed longer than its actual length due to excessive length of some scenes.

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

This movie was a little quirky but enjoable to watch the crazy hijinx of Nick & Norah.

Why We Fight
Why We Fight(2006)
½

This was an interesting documentary covering the military-industrial machine fueling the foreign policy of the US.

Seven Pounds
Seven Pounds(2008)
½

This was a pretty touching movie with a good message, even if it wasn't the most uplifting.

Blindness
Blindness(2008)

This was pretty good for not being a blockbuster film. It does get a little slow in a few places but keeps you wondering if they are going to find a way out of their plight.

I Could Never Be Your Woman

This was a cute little romantic comedy about a mother and doughter and their romantic concerns.

Traitor
Traitor(2008)
½

This was a good movie with a fair amount of suspense and intrigue.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
½

I wasn't very impressed with this sequel. I thought the first movie was much better.

American Gangster

This movie was better than I thought it would be. It was a pretty entertaining tale of the rise and fall of Lucas, though I don't know how much is fact or fiction.

Sword of the Valiant

This movie left a little to be desired. It was a good thing my expectations weren't very high to begin with so I actually made it through the whole movie.

The Bucket List

This movie had some funny parts and had a good concept... do those things that are important to you while you can so that you have no regrets down the road.

Quantum of Solace

Better than many of the more recent Bond movies but not as enjoyable as Casino Royale. There were not too many "over the top" feats but the twisted plot left a little to be desired and left you wondering what had been accomplished.

In the Land of Women
½

This film was a bit different. I didn't really know what to expect and watched it based on a recommendation. It was worth watching but not something I would watch again.

27 Dresses
27 Dresses(2008)

This was actually a rather cute 'chick flick'. It was entertaining and worth a watch.

Miracle at St. Anna
½

Another WWII flick, from a different perspective. However, it was a bit too long for the content of the film. There were points where you just wanted to say "get on with it".

Taken
Taken(2009)

This film doesn't quite have the scope of Bourne but it falls into the same category. Liam really follows through with this one.

The Duchess
The Duchess(2008)

This was another typical film about European royalty and the lives they led. you feel for Georgiana but I'm told that the story stretches the truth a bit.

Max Payne
Max Payne(2008)

I expected a little more from this movie due to really enjoying the film noir nature of the game. I was a little disapointed in the jagged plot but it was decent at least.

Appaloosa
Appaloosa(2008)
½

This was pretty good but not the best western I've seen recently. Renee's character is very annoying.

The Women
The Women(2008)

This was entertaining even though it is a "chick flick".

Bangkok Dangerous

This was suprisingly a pretty good movie up till the end, which was a bit of a let down.

Eagle Eye
Eagle Eye(2008)

This was a pretty good movie with a bit of a surprise.

Major League
Major League(1989)

This was an enteraining and humorous take on the typical washed up baseball player story.

Alpha Dog
Alpha Dog(2007)

Didn't get very far into this one. Too much of the punk thug stuff for me.

Wanted
Wanted(2008)
½

Entertaining for a one time viewing but too "unrealistic" for a better rating.

The Incredible Hulk
½

Much better than the first Hulk movie.

Transformers
Transformers(2007)
½

A great recreation of the classic cartoon. Looking forward to a sequel.
