Movie Ratings and Reviews

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

Frances McDormand was grand as the title character. Her character change over the course is a perfect 180 from the beginning. She lets Amy Adams' character change her from a stuffed shirt to really living in the world.

Something New
½

I like this movie because it deals in the modern day interracial dating.

The Pacifier
The Pacifier(2005)
½

It is an okay film but of course this helped for the downfall of Diesel's career.

Ever After: A Cinderella Story

It makes the Cinderella story a lot more believable as well as makes Cinderella a better role model. The character of Danielle didn't just wait for someone to help her she helped herself. Another thing that was better was the it showed that love is something that happens overtime and shouldn't be taken at fist sight.

The Producers

I didn't like that they didn't really add anything substantial to the staging. I mean rent flushed out the staging as well as Chicago when it went to film but Producer didn't really change. Also the actors continued to overact as if they were onstage which just looks horrible on film.

Monster's Ball

I like the movie. It has a great honesty to the plot.

Monster-in-Law

THe movie is kind of annoying.

The Addams Family

Love the Addams are a fun coocky fam. I like the second film better though.

Clue
Clue(1985)

This is one of the odd films that worked based off of a game. I is a great comedy based on murder.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show
½

I love this cult classic. I love to do the Time Warp with the rest of them.

Enemy of the State

Love this film. It is the everyday man that is put in an extraordinary situation. It makes it more of something that you would think wouldn't happen to you everyday. Will Smith is fantastic.

Lara Croft - Tomb Raider

It is a simple plot adventure film.

Presto
Presto(2008)

This is a cute short film. I love all Pixar short films.

Smokin' Aces
Smokin' Aces(2007)

It is an okay film.

Dreamgirls
Dreamgirls(2006)
½

I love the film because Foxx, Murphy and Hudson put in some great performances. No matter what though I can not endorse Beyonce's film career.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day
½

Great sequel that is possibly better than the first.

Traffic
Traffic(2000)

The film works well intertwining many small stories into on film.

Igby Goes Down

This movie is slightly makes me feel the way I do around my family. I feel like the black sheep or odd person out.

Starship Troopers

It is so corny but I love it.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
½

Love the fun adventureness of the film. It makes me hope that one day I will be taking adventures like this.

Toy Story 2
Toy Story 2(1999)

I love this movie. It doesn't feel as original as the first film but still as fun. One problem that I do have is that there are repeated lines from the 1st movie so it is a little annoying.

But I'm a Cheerleader

I like the somewhat 1950s look combination along with with modern appeal.

The Quiet
The Quiet(2006)

The film is somewhat of a suspense film that takes you by the the throat. To say that this film is anything like Mean Girls is an understatement. This goes for a way harsher look at the life of a teenager.

Sometimes the darkness of the fill is so intense you may have to turn it off or shnge the channel for a second.

Itty Bitty Titty Committee

I enjoyed the movie. It was an interesting take on showing a person coming into their own. I love the fact that it actually acknowledged that the world is pretty sexist toward woman.

Burn After Reading
½

It definitely had all the makings of a typical Coen Brothers film. You laugh, you are shocked, you leave the theater thinking about the movie. You don't really see what's coming in the end and are astonished.

Nothing Like the Holidays
½

There was a lot of funny scenes shown in trailers but after that there still was a lot more to the storyline that was entertaining.

Twilight
Twilight(2008)

I enjoyed the film even though some of the dialogue seemed campy.

Four Christmases
½

Most of the funny parts were shown in the trailers. All the intertwining scenes weren't good.

Slumdog Millionaire

This is a fantastic story. Boyle did a great job in showing how life is in Mumbai for a young person without education or money. This is a good film for anyone to watch.

Robots
Robots(2005)
½

I've never really gotten into this film.

21 Grams
21 Grams(2003)
½

So good. I thought that Sean Penn was going to get another Oscar for this film.

Cars
Cars(2006)
½

It is a cute movie.

Sideways
Sideways(2004)

It is a nice story line. Church is so funny.

Jurassic Park

It is still a good movie. I like to remember everything about the film and enjoy laugh at the things that caused the chaos.

Chocolat
Chocolat(2000)

Love this film. It is a good story line and Johnny Depp is so hot.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend
½

The movie is is not that great a movie. It is kind of annoying.

The Royal Tenenbaums
½

It is a really neat film.

Toy Story
Toy Story(1995)

I love this film. It was so inventive for the time and is still fun to watch.

Transamerica
Transamerica(2006)
½

I enjoyed the film. Huffman desired her award.

Pieces of April
½

I enjoy this film. I like the rugged indie look to it and the character study.

The Phantom of the Opera
½

I like. Gerard Butler is a bad a44 because he is hot and can sing.

In the Land of Women

I enjoy that Adam Brody takes a step above his character from the OC. Yes he is still kind of sarcastic but there is more maturity put to the role.

The Last Kiss
½

It is a nice character driven film about life and how love isn't easy after you fall in love.

Galaxy Quest
Galaxy Quest(1999)
½

So star trek type funny movie. It is so a spoof.

Stargate
Stargate(1994)

Love this movie that is considered a classic to me.

Eagle Eye
Eagle Eye(2008)
½

Good action and suspense. I was munch on popcorn during the whole movie wanting to see what came next.
You should really it.

I'm Not There
½

This movie may not be for people that need an exact ending on their movie and don't want to think. It is a different way to story tell and I enjoy it. After it was over I started to get the movie further. Also a character description on the dvd did help some as well.

You, Me and Dupree

It is a good movie with such a ridiculous character. It is fun for me to see it every time.

No Reservations

I like the movie because it is typical but not too corny.

Penelope
Penelope(2006)

Very nice adaptation of a fair tail set to the background of the real world. Christina Ricci sparkle as the unfortunate title character and makes you sympathize with her.

2 Days in Paris

The actors held my attention which is good because the movie really centered around the two of them. Delpy and Goldberg potrayed a true relationship with its ups and down. Only the hypochondriac ideals of Goldberg's character seemed over the top but aren't most hypocochodriacs kind of like that.

WALL-E
WALL-E(2008)
½

This movie has a little something for everyone. I like the fact that there is a warning for the future of our planet that hopefully was recognized by the young. I also loved the relationship between Wall-E and Eve which kind of made the film romantic.

The Station Agent

This was a good character driven comedy. Every character is this film can actually be reflected on people I know or some one anyone could meet.

Flushed Away
Flushed Away(2006)
½

This movie is a pretty good. I understand why it didn't do so well because it had more adult themes behind the plot line so a child wouldn't have really gotten it.

Muriel's Wedding

This movie is fantastic because the character is believable to me. There are so many women that hit a point in life and think marriage is the most important thing. But the real idea behind the film is that Muriel grows up and take responsibility for herself. This is one of the films that got me to love Toni Collete

College Road Trip

The movie was very predictable and probably lost any and all surprises because it was all shown in the trailers. It is fine for kids but not wouldn't recommend for people above the age of 14.

Nancy Drew
Nancy Drew(2007)
½

I was pleasantly surprised with this film. I thought is would be utterly corny and annoying but it wasn't. I was a nice modern take on a classic novel character. This movie would be fun for the family or among friends.

The Incredible Hulk
½

It was better than the Ang Lee. I also like that they didn't try to pick it up from the Ang Lee movie.

Russian Dolls (Les Poupées Russes)

I love this film. It is a great sequal to Euro Pudding. This takes you to the moment that you know you need to grow up.

L'Auberge Espagnole

This movie is a great take onworking throught the kinks when you first really step into the world on your own.

Monsoon Wedding

This is a great film of love and romance. Specifically the movie centers around finding love, creating love and leaving love behind.

Airheads
Airheads(1994)

This movie is a fun trip about the happenings of three friends trying to get their music heard. The music is very reflective of the year. Steve Buscemi keeps in toe with his crazzy comedy stylings.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

The movie does follow suit of the previous films. I think that some things are detracted from the film with the visible C.G.I. moments.

The New World

I think that the acting, cinematography and costuming was fantastic. Colin Farrell is completely hot.

Sex and the City
½

This is the perfect closure to the series. There were a lot of expected happenings and some surprises. I really loved it.

Iron Jawed Angels

I love this movie. If this movie had been in theaters instead of a HBO movie it would have had Oscars. Hilary Swank gives such a powerful performance. Also Angelica Houston and her tough tongue was awarded a well deserved Gold Globe Award for the sharp Carrie Chapman Catt. This movie isn't just great for feminist but great to see just to realize how hard it was for women to get all the rights we take for granted today.

Wristcutters: A Love Story
½

The end was expected but the ride to the conclusion was really nice. It is worth a rent and view by yourself or with others.

Made of Honor
½

It is a stereotype romantic comedy. You could see about every move coming before it happened. Wait for DVD.

Son of Rambow

I loved it. It is so sweet and inviting. I didn't cry but my mother did. Go with a date, by yourself or take the family.

The Forbidden Kingdom

Today I was able to see a sneak preview of the movie the Forbidden
Kingdom starring Jet Li, Jackie Chan and Micheal Angarano (Sky High and
Lords of Dogtown). The movie is about a boy that magically travels to a
different time and dimension where he is destined to return order to an
area of chaos.

The movie is a combination of the films "A Kid in King Arthur's Court"
and an older Kung Fu adventure. The movie isn't as cheesy as "A Kid..."
but there are moments that are predictable. The movie itself is the
dream of many men, young boys, girls and women that dream about
something like this happening.

The cinematography, art direction and set design was fantastic. The
beautiful combination of colors like a battle set in a field of cherry
blossoms or Jet Li's white costume against a forest of green Bamboo. If
you for some reason don't like the movie you will love the production
aspect.

The new face to the American market Yifei Lui as Golden Sparrow was
really good. She held her own in the fight scenes and as a presence in
the movie next to Chan and Li. I think if this movie proves to be a big
hit we will see more of her. Chan was in a better suited role for him
than he has been in the last few years which made me happy. His last
handful of films has not been of very good quality so it was nice to
see something worthy. Li worked well and delivered his usual great show
of artistry of fight scene and nice acting.

Angarano did well for himself as the protagonist of the film and I
think has some great stories to tell after making this film. Even with
the fact that all the scenes are choreographed he probably was beaten
up on a few time with one misstep or misjudgment. Also he did do a fair
amount of fighting so his training had to be long and hard.

I recommend that you find the money to go see it in theaters. It will
be great for the family to watch and mostly clean with the dialog. Hope
that you enjoy and drop a line once you see the film.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
½

The cinematography, set design and costumers were extraordinary. Johnny Depp did very well at the singing and personification of the character. I was surprised by Helena Bonham carter's voice because I didn't see it in her.

The Painted Veil

This movie is fantastic and moving. The story of a married couple that final have mutual love between them. Edward Norton is amazing (and so is his butt).

Disturbia
Disturbia(2007)
½

This movie is good. I was hoping for more thrills but it is still good.

August Rush
August Rush(2007)

I loved this movie. It warmed my heart and made me believe in everyday miracles.

Prince Valiant

This is a pretty good movie in the genre of Medieval period pieces. It is also a fun adventur eof mystery and magic.

First Knight
First Knight(1995)

It is a nice movie. We get romance, action and adventure. It is a little bit of a different role adding action hero to Richard Gere's list of characters he has played.

More American Graffiti
½

this movie is pretty good movie. knowing what happened to some of the characters and waiting to get there kept me watching thru out the movie. it is a good idea to see the original before you see this one so you get some character background. It is also a great movie to show the happenings of an era. I like how there was one twist from what the characters told us and what really happened at the end.

Inside Man
Inside Man(2006)
½

This movie is insane. It has so much suspense and the brilliance. This is a great film for anyone to to watch.

The Mummy
The Mummy(1999)
½

Awesome movie with a modern twist on the old creature features.

Dazed and Confused

I just love the movie. It is great because of the look back at the generation that my parents grew up with.

Grease
Grease(1978)

This movie has lasted for years. It is the one movie that I think many parents can sing with their kids. I think it may have a place in the hearts of many more generations.

Independence Day

Welcome to earth. This is one of the best action movies that has many comic moments. It would have been a completely different movie if Will Smith hadn't been in it.

The Goonies
The Goonies(1985)
½

Love the adventure of looking for the adventure. This movie works well for all generations. I hope that all children see this so that they dream and have the same adventures.

The Fast and the Furious

The best of the bunch. It's fast and gets your mind moving.

Ice Age
Ice Age(2002)

Good fun for everyone film. It is so cute and the story is very simple.

Liar Liar
Liar Liar(1997)

Funny Jim Carrey classic.

Bring It On
Bring It On(2000)

I liked this one.

Dogma
Dogma(1999)

Dogma is a great movie and makes you think. It is a great comedy and does give you some Biblical insight.

Clueless
Clueless(1995)

This movie started and keeps alive one generation of that was the early to mid "90s.

Cruel Intentions

Good movie. My fav character is Katherine because you always love a good B****.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

This movie is still awesome. I mean Ferris is that guy that you knew back in High School that wasn't a jerk and everyone liked. You knew that he was smart and would grow up to probably be something big and you would feel bitter about it.

Face/Off
Face/Off(1997)
½

Great masterpiece. I love the psychological themes around the different men assuming the other's identity. You see Cage playing the good guy pretending to be the bad guy and it works.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

I like how this was the beginning of the darker Harry Potter films. It was very exciting.

Monsters, Inc.
½

This movie is so cute. It is probably a good way for kids to get over their fears of monsters in the closet.

Requiem for a Dream

This is a good warning of how drugs screws up your life.

Snatch
Snatch(2001)
½

I see this as a way of how karma works in the world. The guy that is down on his luck and doesn't do many bad things end up in the good in the end.

Almost Famous
½

This is the ultimate fantasy of a rock fan. I can't believe this is somewhat based in fact. I wish it was my story.

Lost In Translation

This is a lovely story about the chance relationships we have between people we meet.

Chicago
Chicago(2002)

I like how the musical was adapted for screen.

Notting Hill
Notting Hill(1999)

It is a cute story of how no matter what your standing is in the social or working class love is with whom ever you fall in love with.

Old School
Old School(2003)

Funny frat movie.

Sleepy Hollow
½

Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci are great together. The character that Depp creates makes the movie work.

Fight Club
Fight Club(1999)
½

I can't talk about. That's the first rule.

The Fifth Element

Love this movie and no one can change this for me. Gary Oldman is one of the best character actors because I once lost a bet that he was Seriou Black, Dracula (the one with Keanu Reeves) AND Zorg. I just this that the same person that did Zorg did the other two characters. I also agree with what my sister says. He places a great car salesman like when he is giving those crazy guns.

National Treasure
½

Great movie for adventure and education. This was like the more adult version of the Goonies.

The Princess Bride

"As you wish." Movies live this have ruined me because of how romantic it is.

X2: X-Men United
½

The beginning in the White House was the best. I wish that they could have continued with Nightcrawler in Last Stand.

Zoolander
Zoolander(2001)
½

This is the oddest look as the fashion industry. My favorite part is when Zoolander gets mad about the model of his center for Kids Who Can't Read Too Good.

Interview with the Vampire
½

Fantastic. I am always sad when Claudia dies.

Man on Fire
Man on Fire(2004)

I love this for that action and the love between Creese and his charge.

The Bourne Identity
½

Great film. This kicks James Bond on his @$$.

Batman Begins

Bale and everyone behind the film successfully brought back the franchise.

Pride and Prejudice

I enjoyed the movie alot. It is a good adaptation of Austen's work.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

Follows that basic format of the others.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

You are taken on a ride through a relationship that could belong to anyone. The movie is a great display of why even if you break up "it is better to have loved and lost".

The Godfather
½

It truly deserves to be called a classic because even now it doesn't loose it's meaning or impact.

The 40 Year Old Virgin

Great comedy and humor. This was a great movie to take Carell to the next level of his career.

Finding Neverland

Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet are fantastic. The chemistry between the two rings loud and clear. Depp makes you believe that he creates Neverland right on the spot.

V for Vendetta
½

This is a great ideals and themes behind the movie.

Superbad
Superbad(2007)
½

Very funny movie with lots of sexual humor.

Happy Feet
Happy Feet(2006)
½

Great and adorable movie with a great ending theme. I love to watch this film.

The Devil Wears Prada

Emily Blunt is great in this movie. Every little quip makes me laugh. Meryl Streep is frightening. I hope to never meet a Miranda in real life.

The Departed
The Departed(2006)

This movie is awesome. Every twist and turn leads you further down the adventure. The last 20 minutes are unexpected.

Blades of Glory
½

Will Ferell and Header are both great in this roll.

300
300(2007)

awesome pecks. I do love the story and action.

Shrek the Third
½

The movie was funny but not as good as the original.

Jumper
Jumper(2008)
½

This movie didn't live up to the hype that the commercials depicted. I just think that there was stuff that may be on a cutting room floor that could have been kept in the film.

Juno
Juno(2007)
½

It was a really great movie. Every actor turned in great performances. I wish that the director had continued on with the chemistry that Bateman and Page had for at least a bit.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

I enjoyed the movie but it seemed like there could have been more.

A Walk to Remember
½

I think this is the one movie that Mandy Moore is truly honest as an actress.

Sin City
Sin City(2005)

I love the film noir type of thing they have going on in the film. I also love the chemistry between Clive Owen and Rosario Dawson.

Love Actually

I love this movie. My favorite story is about Laura Linney's character.

Big Fish
Big Fish(2003)

Tim Burton creates a world that is so pleasing to the eye. The acting is great and I love the movie.. Ewan McGregor and Albert Finney as Edward Bloom are great charmers.

The Mummy Returns

It is was good and lived up to the presence of the first movie. I love the fact that Weisz was got to do some fighting.

Night at the Museum

Not bad. It was a cute movie that is good for those with an imagination.

Be Kind Rewind
½

It was a good movie. It isn't completely over the top like many of Jack Black's films.

The Darjeeling Limited

This is a crazy trip of trying to pull a family back together. The cinematography was amazing. Other than the three main characters India is a character in itself.

I Heart Huckabees

The movie is just full of corky goodness. It is all about learning about one's self through any mefium possible.

Garden State
Garden State(2004)
½

I love this movie. It is a combination of how the crazy things in life may be just the things that feel the most ordinary. In the end life is what you make it so get off you butt and work for it. It may not always be planned for.

Trust the Man

I saw a good chunck of this film and it is one of those films that is based in the possible. There are things in the movie that probably every couple could see in at least one of their relationships at one time or another.

Children of Men

This movie is a great piece of work. I is a scary look at our possile future of the world. It is something many people should see. It just grabs you in andwon't let go. The most powerful point in the film is easy to see because all the characters are moved.

If you are someone that likes everything rapped in a pretty bow this probably isn't your movie.

Unaccompanied Minors

Cute movie that is definitely family film. Not a suggested film for a date or people over the age of 14 unless babysitting.

Hairspray
Hairspray(2007)

Really good film. I enjoyed it a lot. I will probably get a better experience the next time I see it because the first time I saw it was at Thanksgiving with loud people.

Across the Universe

I loved this film. Every actor gave a thrilling acting and singing performance. When this comes out on DVD I want it and will probably ware the movie out.

Elf
Elf(2003)

The movie was really cute. I enjoyed it but Ferrell's sugary sweet personality got to me some times.

The Covenant
The Covenant(2006)
½

The plot was there but it feels like it could have been delivered better or written better. Beyond just the movie Steven Strait and Taylor Kitsch were totally hot with no shirts.

Little Miss Sunshine
½

I love this movie. The messed up dinamic of the family makes you laugh out loud. It also has a great message of be yourself no matter what people tell you. Also the fact that you should also learn to except what can not be changed.

Catch and Release

It was a very fun movie about taking your life back after you loose a loved one.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End

Loved it. I know it may have been confusing for some but I completely understood the story.

Death at a Funeral
½

Funny. Kept me laughing through out the movie.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

It was a wonder recreation of a movie that haas be dibe so many times. The visuals were stunning and took my breath away. The kids were all wonderful actors.

No Country for Old Men
½

I saw this movie and it was great. It is not good for people who expect a completely wrapped up film in a nice shiney bow. Javier Bardem was great as the psychotic killer. With very few words he commands the screen and freaks you out. I hope I never meet him on a dark street looking as creepy as he is.
Josh Brolin plays the surprisingly smart and talented man that finds the money. In the begining you think he may not last a day he is so crafty you root for him so hard.
I believe that many people should go see it but again I believe that you should keep your mind and expectations open to anything to happen. If you don't keep your mind or eyes open you will probably end up confused.

The Heartbreak Kid
½

It was an ok movie. the funniest character in the movie was the dad played by Jerry Stiller. Also Rob Corddy was pretty funny.

Sydney White
Sydney White(2007)
½

I saw it last night and it was ok. Sara Paxton was good as the crazy bitch. I enjoyed it more because I was an extra in the movie and saw myself and my friend.

The Shawshank Redemption

This film is incredible. It is one of my new favorites.

The Simpsons Movie
½

Laughed and laughed. the whole audience sang SPiderpig.

Hot Fuzz
Hot Fuzz(2007)

Great combo of action, laughter and homage to Bad Boys and Point Break.

Labyrinth
Labyrinth(1986)

I love David Bowie in this movie.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
½

It was a little corny with the "you were the chosen one" line.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
½

It was good. Will be seeing Order soon.

Shrek 2
Shrek 2(2004)

Cute and funny. Puss in Boots stole some of the show. I used to be good at that whole get what you want with cute eyes trick.

Spider-Man
Spider-Man(2002)
½

Great movie, great song (hero by Chad Kroeger (feat. Josey Scott)

Walk the Line
½

Great film. Reese Witherspoon deserved her Oscar and Joaquin Pheonix should have gotten one too.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

I love this movie. Johnny Depp is sweet as Captain Jack Sparrow and extremely hot. The action is great, the plot clear and the characters are fun to get to know.

Miss Potter
Miss Potter(2007)
½

I saw this on an airplane trip from CA to FL. It was a really good and sincere film. The fantasy of the interaction between Ms Potter and the characters in the book were very sweet. Anyone that enjoys a good 19th century film should watch this.

Knocked Up
Knocked Up(2007)

I saw this on a sneak peak back in may or april. I thought it was going to be dumb but it was a good movie that was really funny. I just kept watching and thinking guys can't be this bad can they? Then my dad saw it and he told me he used to do that deep end stuff all the time.

Transformers
Transformers(2007)
½

It was awesome. The effects were really great. Shia Labeouf was cute and everything was awesome.

Failure to Launch
½

Zoey Deschanel was really funny in this movie. It was a good laugh all together.

Bridge to Terabithia
½

I saw the movie on an airplane and it was ok. I think I read the book ages ago but couldn't remember what went on in the book. The commercials were a little misleading but it is good for the family.
