Foodfight!
Foodfight!(2012)

Do not see this movie. It is awful. Truly awful.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

One of the finest ensembles I've seen in film. All great performances interwoven into one good senior existentialist film.

The Dark Knight Rises
½

This movie will break you like Bane did Batman.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
½

Mediocre dialogue, clumsy changes, and poor development of Mikael Blomkvist really don't make the original as strong as people say it is. Booming Rapace owns Lisbeth although much different from Rooney Mara (not trying to troll, I'm just saying). The story's good, and it does end better than in the American version. In the grand scheme of things, I still prefer Fincher's version.

Titanic
Titanic(1997)

Never thought a movie like Titanic would do this to me.

21 Jump Street

It's half gross and stupid and half funny. However all of this gets cancelled out when the villain gets his wang blown off.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

A brilliant movie, not just as a remake, but as a movie in general.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

Not as good as the first two

The Social Network

A clear example of a quality that hasn't been around in a while: a movie solely based on acting, scriptwriting and direction. It's as romantic as Macbeth, but it is still a good story of overambition and going so far that you either lose what you held dear or you'll eventually have something trying to bring you down.

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy(2010)

It was really cool but underwhelming. It had the potential to be epic, but it was seriously underplayed and thus never reached that potential. Still, it makes for great escapism.

Richard III
Richard III(1995)
½

This really is a good adaptation of Shakespeare's play. Ian McKellen knows how to play this king as the scumbag he is, not only doing really bad things but also managing to get away with it...all while looking really disgusting. He's like if Gollum didn't have that screechy, glottal voice.

Tangled
Tangled(2010)
½

This movie is very formulaic; it follows the "feel-good" princess storyline down to a T and as a result is very predictable. Having said that, it wasn't TOO bad because the visuals were pretty cool and creative, and the voice talent was actually pretty good. It's definitely not Disney's best animated, but it's not so bad that it was just awful. It's eye-candy, semi-boring and somewhat entertaining eye-candy.

Zodiac
Zodiac(2007)
½

The movie is well-directed and well-acted; every time I see it, my interest is piqued. It focuses more on the case than it does the actual murders, and every time we get close to figuring out who it is, we eventually get to a part that ruins everything. The build-up in the scenes are just well done without the use of blood and gore; it's just the dialogue. My favorite part about the movie is how it shifts narrators during the story. We start off with San Francisco's view of the murders, then Toschi's until finally Graysmith's. It's interesting seeing how this story impacted these elements and how it was so crucial to find an answer that would never be found no matter how close they were.

Superbad
Superbad(2007)

I don't like this movie. Don't ask me why. I don't care if you love McLovin; he annoys me. In fact, almost everyone in this movie annoys me, down to Jonah Hill and he's supposed to be the funny one. If I wanted to hear people talk about sex, I'd see "Basic Instinct", and that movie (forgive the pun) turned me off. Sex jokes are funny; sex isn't.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
½

I found it to be tedious. I thought the comic relief was pretty juvenile, and the idea about aliens building the pyramids isn't new. Although there were some parts I did enjoy (like the government being a hindrance to the program), I didn't like the movie at all.

Watchmen
Watchmen(2009)

It's a thing of wonder and beauty.
