The Shallows
The Shallows(2016)

A bit melodramatic...almost a good movie...just was ok to me...some good moments...too many Blake Lively butt and boob shots..that were unnecessary.... Simple story...

Free State of Jones
½

First..I would say...definitely see it...interesting true story...love McConaughey....but it didn't flow very well. It went back and forth between 2 time periods...but even the individual periods were very choppy....I blame the director ...story was there...acting all around good...long movie...

The Witch

Loved the X-men and the backstories of the characters..but I could have done without Apocalypse....kind of a dud villain....but still enjoyed the movie!

The Jungle Book

Love this story....great visually and story....everyone should see!!! love Bill Murray voicing Buloo!!! and Christopher Walken as King Louie and Idris Elba as Shere Khan.....

10 Cloverfield Lane

Loved it! A great psychological horror that pulls you into the confined space with twist and turns in the plot...Great acting by John Goodman and with a strong female character for once!!!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Better than I thought it would be...interesting...different...Not much into Zombies, but had a nice balance without alot of blood....

½

Good old fashioned story telling...simple story , some but not alot of action..but great acting by Chris Pine and Casey Affleck.....

Burnt
Burnt(2015)

Had some interesting moments....just ok..

The Big Short

A lot of information, coming from 3 different angles..understood it more than I thought I would..LOL...love the casting!

Room
Room(2015)

Great story..amazing acting by Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay...their transition from "Room" to real world tugs at your heart....You want to hope for a happy ending for them....Recommend the movie..and read the book!!

Joy
Joy(2015)

Story was good..editing of the story a little choppy..but I really enjoyed the movie...Jennifer was great as usual...

Sicario

It is what it is..love Kurt Russell and Samuel Jackson...and Jennifer Jason Leigh was great!!! Not for everyone...but I enjoyed it..

The Forest
The Forest(2016)

Wait to see on DVD....

In the Heart of the Sea

Another good story told...great visual movie...more depth to the story would have made it even better....but I really enjoyed it....

Bone Tomahawk

A different kind of movie not for everyone. Now, I love Kurt Russell, so I will watch anything with him in it..LOL....but this was a peculiar genre mix of western, comedy, horror, cannabalism and romance rolled into one!! ....Take a chance and watch!

Creed
Creed(2015)
½

Loved it.!!! Does it resemble "Rocky"? yes...but in it's own way. It had enough new story...added with old story...to make a great combination and amazing movie....when some of the old Rocky score was used...yes..it made me cry....and yes..I cried at least 3-4 times.....Love Stallone in this roll...Michael B Jordan does an amazing job as young Creed too!

The Intern
The Intern(2015)

Very enjoyable movie! Anne Hathaway and Robert DeNiro have a great chemistry!

Pitch Perfect 2

Not as good as the first one, but was fun to watch for a good laugh!

Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs(2015)

Enjoyed the acting of Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet, but if you dont't know much about the whole Apple/Mac issues...it might not be worth your time. My opinion, wait for the DVD.

Bridge of Spies

"No one can match Spielberg when it comes to simplifying complex moments in history without diminishing their significance in any way"..This was an amazing movie with a well told story and great acting by Tom Hanks. I would highly recommend everyone seeing this!

Do You Believe?

Decided to watch since friends had mentioned how good it was....Enjoyed the story lines of the '12' people....but maybe TOO many storylines to keep up with or to stay involved with. It did bring some things to think about in life...but in some aspects...a bit over the top,,,, Not for everyone....

Love & Mercy
Love & Mercy(2015)
½

I wasn't sure what to expect of this movie,but I really enjoyed it. Again, more like a documentary, as we flip bsck and forth in time to different periods of Brian Wilson's life. Paul Dano as the younger Brian Wilson , and John Cuzack as the older Brian...were both amazing in this movie...and I LOVE Elizabeth Banks...she is amazing in anything she does these days....Loved learning some history of the Beach Boys that I hadn't known about....I would recommend seeing it. It's at Redbox's right now!!

Pan
Pan(2015)
½

I liked it...could it have been better ...yes...Loved Hugh's Blackbeard...loved the boy that played Peter., Levi Miller (can't wait to see how he grows and develops in to his acting career)..loved Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily...Story had some holes...slow at the beginning..but really enjoyed the 2nd half.....I would recommend seeing it....

The Martian
The Martian(2015)

Smart, thrilling and funny...this was an awesome movie!! Kinda of a Tom Hanks "Castaway" on Mars...kept me interested..ted..had funny moments...and Matt Damon did an excellent job!!!

I'll See You in My Dreams

An amazing movie that I could relate to on MANY levels...love Blythe Danner...Sam Elliot I could watch all day just sitting and talking..LOL...A story about life...and remembering to live it!!!

Everest
Everest(2015)

I really liked this...I am glad they made it more like a documentary than disaster movie...So sad what happened, but the visual appeal of the movie was amazing ( I saw it on standard screen, being shown also on IMAX and 3D)....I just wish the script had given more back story on the main characters..but overall..really enjoyed it!!

Boulevard
Boulevard(2015)

This could have been more...great acting by Williams...story is what was missing...but it pulls at your heart...

The Water Diviner
½

I wasn't sure about this one...but the story pulled me in...love Russell Crowe...great story..

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials
½

Good not great....don't go in thinking you will get much of the book plot...Just go and enjoy it....

Straight Outta Compton

An amazing movie that I would put in my Top 5 movies this year! Great writing and amazing cast make this a movie an awesome biopic of N.W.A ....and insight into their rise and fall....we learn about each member, the problems and controversies. Great soundtrack on the movie too...and this is coming from someone who probably wouldn't put RAP in my top 5 favorite kind of music. FYI: alot of language, guns and anger in this movie..if that offends you...wouldn't suggest you going...but you might learn something!!

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
½

Really enjoyed this one...had the right balance of story, intrigue and action...Loved Cruise as always...Simon Pegg..funny as usual..Nice seeing Jeremy Renner...Ving Rhames had a little spot..(but not much energy..LOL)...but I REALLY loved the female lead...Rebecca Ferguson..she took Cruise and the movie up a notch...would love seeing more of here...maybe in the NEXT Mission Impossible movie?? ;-)

Woman in Gold

An amazingly true story, that I just wish had a little more meat to it...like more of the back story. I'm not a big Ryan Reynolds fan, but he did a good job in the movie...I would love to see the documentary that was made about Altmann "Stealing Kutin" I think it was called.... I would recommend seeing if you get a chance...

Survivor
Survivor(2015)
½

Love Pierce Bronson...but this just didn't do much for me...storyline was weak and I just lost interest by the end....

Pixels
Pixels(2015)

OK...if you go to the movie...just enjoy and don't expect much...Fun seeing all the old arcade games...Cute and funny...just don't expect much of a story...

Ant-Man
Ant-Man(2015)

Loved it...it was better than I expected to be..but I love Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas....

Magic Mike XXL
½

Sorry...yes...loved seeing the guys..bare chests...but not into this hip hop stripping....Just give me Joe...LOL...Cute and funny moments...but not much there....especially and story...

Jurassic World

Not as good as original....exciting in places...ending fight was REALLY good!!...

Inside Out
Inside Out(2015)

Really enjoyed...great animation...feel good type of movie....you might even learn something ;-)

Terminator Genisys

I'm a fan of the original....and this wasn't even close....but...interesting twist to the story...but there wasn't much meat to the story...it could have been alot better...No depth..information overload...and the 'new' Sarah and Reese...were just 'ok'.....So enjoyed...glad I saw...but you could wait until the DVD comes out.... P.s.....don't leave to early at the end...a little something after first set of credits!

Pitch Perfect
½

Finally watched this on DVD after everyone said how good it was...ok...I liked it...and now i must see number 2 :-P

Mad Max: Fury Road

OK...everyone loved it more than me....just not enough story/conversation in it for me....seemed just like a really long and loud drive back and forth across desert....Only high point...was Charlize Theron's performance!!! it was awesome!

Tomorrowland
Tomorrowland(2015)
½

Enjoyed it...love George and Britt Robertson.....story was a little uneven...but still an amazingly fun story!

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Enjoyed it...maybe a little better than Avengers...still feel like I need to read some backstories on each of the characters....Loved James Spader's voice as Ultron!!! ....

The Age of Adaline
½

An enjoyable movie....but felt it could have been alot better ... perhaps too reserved and tastefully restrained for its own good....I liked Blake..but she or character seemed just a bit too stiff like...and I kept wanting more depth to the story.....It felt like we were just given the chapter titles and nothing of the meat of the story.... Even though I would change some it...I would still recommend seeing the movie!

The Longest Ride
½

This movie is what it is...is it going to win any awards...no...BUT...it's enjoyable, love story two times over...up and coming actors ( Brittany Roberson and Scott Eastwood)...legend actor Alan Alda....good , warm hearted movie.... :-)

Whiplash
Whiplash(2014)
½

Great movie...obsession to be the best!! Amazing performances...

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Entertaining...fun....and a bit comic book gory!! love Colin Firth...and Samuel Jackson...but Jackson's character...was a bit odd...A not for everyone kind of movie....

McFarland USA
½

Loved it!! Good , heart warming story....Wish there was more of these kind of movies made...and yes..wasn't bad watching Kevin Costner for 2hrs ;-)

Old Fashioned

Loved this movie....all the things I love...good story...romantic..old fashioned...true relationship development....Sure it's not for everyone...but I really enjoyed it...Small budget film..faith based..but not in your face kind...

Fifty Shades of Grey

I was worried in the first 10mins...not sure it was going to work...but slowly the movie grew on me...Is there sex? yes..BDSM? yes..light version...but the true story is the need for each of them to understand each other...evolve....This is what I love about the movie...and ok..the other scenes too :-P ...now time to go back and re read the book!!!

Black or White

Really enjoyed the acting from everyone in the movie..The director's ability to make smart arguments for both sides of the issue, without becoming overly sentimental, gives Black or White a solid foundation. Kevin still has it too ;-)

Love Is Strange

Good movie...lost me a little at the end....but enjoyed it....

Boyhood
Boyhood(2014)
½

An amazing narrative story that pulls you in to the family's life...and what direction they will all take over the 12 years....cast were all amazing!

Chef
Chef(2014)

A good script, food, music, family and laughs....what an awesome combination...nothing NOT to like with this movie!!! Wish I had seen it sooner....A feel good movie!!

The Imitation Game

An interesting story that I enjoyed watching...especially Cumberbatch's performance. I really didn't know much about the story..but a wondefully made biopic!!

Wild
Wild(2014)
½

Loved this powerful and emotional journey....Reese Witherspoon is amazing and true to the story (which I've read part of the book)...just wish there was more of the ups and downs of the PCT shown on screen....but it was still a great movie....about life....good, bad and the ugly.....

Big Eyes
Big Eyes(2014)

I agree with this critics consensus : "Well-acted, thought-provoking, and a refreshing change of pace for Tim Burton, Big Eyes works both as a biopic and as a timelessly relevant piece of social commentary." Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz are amazing!!!!

Into the Woods

I really liked it....Reminds me of a modern Princess Bride!!!...Loved James Corden and the little boy Daniel Huttlestone (he was in Les Mis) ....Emily Blunt an Meryl Steep are always good....A little corny, a little funny...maybe just a little slow...but overall enjoyed the music and singing....Oh..and Chris Pine is as gorgeous as ever..a few of his scenes were where the crowd laughed the loudest!!....I would recommend!!!

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
½

Enjoyed the movie, though wish it would have explained more...guess it makes me want to read the books now!!! Some laughs, some tears, and I really do love the dwarves now!!!!oh...and the Hobbit!! ;-)...Also..helps to see the previous 2 movies to understand some of it..though still can be enjoyed if you don't!! Oh...and Bard the Bowman is mine ;-)

The Theory of Everything
½

Amazing story and courage...really enjoyed

Birdman
Birdman(2014)
½

An interesting movie, artsy...great cinematography...love all the actors!!! A little bizarre...but a wonderful change from some of the movies out now!

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Really enjoyed it...yeah..not much action in first part ( which was kind of nice since there was so much in first two!)...but I can't wait for the second part!!!

Nightcrawler
Nightcrawler(2014)

This movie is getting raves...on Rotten Tomatoes, IMBD...but I just don't get it. Maybe I missed something , but I came away with no feeling good or bad about the movie....Maybe it's me...but would be curious to see what others think of it....It was just....weird....

John Wick
John Wick(2014)
½

Keanu...love anything he does...B movieish...but still entertained!

The Judge
The Judge(2014)

Loved it...Downey Jr and Duval were amazing!!!

Gone Girl
Gone Girl(2014)

Good movie and enjoyed it...ending was kinda flat in my opinion..but maybe because i wanted a little more!!!

Dolphin Tale
Dolphin Tale(2011)

Loved this movie....love dolphins....can't wait to see #2...love Harry Connick Jr...Kris Kristofferson, Ashley Judd..!!!..

The Giver
The Giver(2014)
½

I had just finished the book a few hours before the movie....The movie was enjoyable..there were things added to the movie that helped but also things that really didn't matter....interesting book and movie...it does make you think about the difference between Utopian and Dystopian societies....

Thor: The Dark World

A not bad sequel to the first Thor...I can sit and watch Chris Hemsworth all night long!! Got lost in the story line along the way...and the ending caught me off guard....but overall not a bad Marvel movie ;-)

Austenland
Austenland(2013)

Saw this on Starz...thought it looked cute...and I love Keri Russell, but it seemed to miss a good script....good acting, but the story just wasn't there...but I still enjoyed it....

Guardians of the Galaxy
½

A fun adventure that made me want to know more of the backstory....I actually look forward to seeing the next one!!! Many good laughs and Chris Pratt and Batista not to bad to look at ... ;-)

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

I loved this movie!!! It's amazingly moving...intelligent...and visually amazing!! This is how its described on rotten tomatoes..."With intelligence and emotional resonance to match its stunning special effects, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes expands on its predecessor with an exciting and ambitious burst of sci-fi achievement.".....I highly recommend this movie...I am probably going to go see it again!!! Maybe in 3D!!!

Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow
½

Love time loop movies...good action but not overly done...some laughs...and well...Tom....and Emily Blunt..both did a great job...Must see....

Her
Her(2013)

Interesting...different...not for everyone....

Maleficent
Maleficent(2014)

A great spin on an old classic!! Disney did well in telling the story of Maleficent that children and adults will love!! Love the effects...love the magic...love the simple creation of story being told ...To be honest....would love to see if a sequel could be made!!! (especially love to see only a little fighting/violence.).. A must see!!!

Godzilla
Godzilla(2014)
½

I love a good Godzilla movie..but you need to have him in MOST of the movie to make it good...Not enough Godzilla, storyline choppy, but was a good time laughing at all the 'bad movie' mayhem...

Philomena
Philomena(2013)

Really worth seeing....a sad story of the church hiding information from a women whose child was taken from her...

Labor Day
Labor Day(2014)
½

Worth seeing...story could have been better...a little too much sappiness...but i enjoyed it...

47 Ronin
47 Ronin(2013)

It was a Japanese samurai movie...as long as you don't expect much..it was pretty good....I enjoyed it....but i like Keanu too!!

Island Of Lemurs: Madagascar

Enjoyed watching.....beautiful scenery...love the lemurs!

Oculus
Oculus(2014)
½

For a horror movie, Oculus is surprisingly lean on the scares. It's more interested in playing tricks with perception and bending reality....which is what I like!!

The Book Thief

Though not a big fan of the "Hitler" time period...really found myself pulled in to this story...the actress that played the little girl was amazing...and of course Geoffrey Rush was amazing as always....and with books being a theme in the movie...of course I loved it!! LOL....its on DVD and at Redbox now!!

Bears
Bears(2014)

Amazingly beautiful scenery...and animals....loved every moment...could have watched them for many more hours!!! Nature is amazing!!!

Frozen
Frozen(2013)

Another good Disney movie....

Whip It
Whip It(2009)

Just got around to watching this..forgot about all the people in it...really enjoyed it...

Divergent
Divergent(2014)
½

I will start off by saying I enjoyed the movie..was never bored...and REALLY loved all the actors who really made the movie!!!....As usual..book to movie..alot of things get cut out...some characters don't get developed...but I feel they got the heart of the story told and the visual environment of the factions was amazingly just like I thought they would!!! I now want to go run and jump on a train...might have to think about jumping off a roof though!!! I would say go see it....enjoy it....then read the book if you haven't yet.....My only down is there was alot more interaction and character development of the other initiates..that is probably what i missed most....I would look forward to a sequel..hope they make one!

The Spectacular Now

Wonderful coming of age movie....

Nebraska
Nebraska(2013)

Wasn't sure if I would like this...but it's an amazing story...of parents and children....life...what we want from life..children and parents....must see!

Dallas Buyers Club

Simply WOW!!!!....amazing movie...McConaughey and Leto were amazing!!!...everyone should see...hard subject to watch...but very moving story!!

Non-Stop
Non-Stop(2014)

Enjoyed the movie...and Liam of course!!...a bit of suspense...would probably wait for DVD though....

Winter's Tale
½

Don't listen to the reviews...this was a good movie with alot of heart and a good message to pass along...a great list of actors and actresses in this movie!! Even Will Smith ;-)Colin Farrell, Russell Crowe,,William Hurt..and the list goes on.....Now its time to read the book!!!

All Is Lost
All Is Lost(2013)

For having one actor and less than 10 words it held my attention and had me gripping the sets with what was going to happen next !!

Prisoners
Prisoners(2013)

Held my attention and has me trying to solve the mystery! And Hugh was in it ;-)

Blue Jasmine
Blue Jasmine(2013)

Interesting but strange. Not for everyone .

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
½

A story driven movie, instead of so much violence....the conflict of who does she really love Peeta or Gale...AND..the decision to do what's best for her..or the Districts..it all made for another amazing movie!!!..Though I'm sure they left out things from the book...but it was an amazing movie and though the ending just stopped...it did what Im sure they were wanting...making me want more!!!! A must see!!!

Captain Phillips

An amazingly, intense movie!!..Tom Hanks again in an amazing role...I knew some things about the event but found out more from the movie...now I might have to read Philips book....A must watch movie!!

Gravity
Gravity(2013)
½

An amazingly visual movie that I am ready to go see again!! It's hard to pinpoint why i loved it so much...the quietness?? the adrenaline rush?? the visual awww of space and earth ?? or was it just Sandra and George???...probably a combination of all the the above!!! GO see it..in 3D!!! ...Now!!!

Movie 43
Movie 43(2013)

Funny at times..but NOT really worthy of having been a movie or these stars being in it..what were they thinking...is all I can say...don't waste your time!...gave it 2 stars because of the first skit with Kate and Hugh...too funny!

The Sessions
The Sessions(2012)

I loved this movie..gonna share the review into from rotten tomatoes...really sums it up..

"Tender, funny, and touching, The Sessions provides an acting showcase for its talented stars and proves it's possible for Hollywood to produce a grown-up movie about sex." ....

The Wolverine

A superhero movie with a good story!! Yes..there is action...but it had a good story with it that made me enjoy it even more!!..and of course Hugh's bare chest...helped alot too!! ;-) (sorry can't help it).....Make sure and stay AFTER the initial credits....

Quartet
Quartet(2013)

A sit back and enjoy movie...Dustin Hoffman's first time as director...love the main characters and the actors that play them...I could watch anything with Maggie Smith and Billy Connolly!!!...Not for everyone for sure...but an enjoyable story...

Mud
Mud(2013)

I enjoyed the movie and Matthew McConaughey proves again why he CAN act when in a good movie! More of a guy movie in my opinion..but one to definitely see!

The Conjuring

Really liked this movie...true story...scary ...jump in your seat type movie...Great acting...Lili Taylor really does well in these type of movies...

World War Z
World War Z(2013)

First...I haven't read the book...but plan to after seeing the movie. I enjoyed the movie overall, though the beginning was a bit "jump in the face" and go..with no real explanation..at least to me. I am not a big zombie fan, but this one wasn't too bad and had LESS zombie eating people scenes..just MORE Zombies coming at people..fast and slow...LOL....It will be interesting to see how I will compare it to the book. I would recommend seeing it. Oh yeah...Brad Pitt is in it too ;-)

Man of Steel
Man of Steel(2013)
½

Not really sure what I think of this movie...here is what someone said in a review that kinda covers how I feel " An occasionally exciting, intelligent and visually impressive sci-fi adventure with a fine cast. It is also frequently excessive and over-produced, but then what else should one expect from a summer blockbuster?
I loved Crowe and Costner...Love Diane Lane...Amy Adams..didn't really seem to fit...and Henry Cavill...not sure about yet..do like the gruffy look the best ;-) ...I would see...but let me know what you think of it....

Star Trek Into Darkness
½

Visually amazing and relationship driven, this installment of Star Trek is just as good as the first one!! I love being able to detect the innuendos and comments that are made that reflect back to the whole "STAR TREK" series (movies and television shows). I am not going to give any 'SPOILERS"....but some characters new and old will be introduced in the movie...I love it!! The banter between the main characters is still the best part....laugh out loud funny at times!!! I have only 2 things that put me off about the movie....1. Where does the "Into Darkness" subtitle come from?? not sure where or what darkness they were referring too... 2. I would give the editing crew a B- ...alot of scenes jump forward to much for me...One scene they are hanging from a railing..and the next they are walking away fine... MMmmmm..just a comment on part...
Loved the movie.....You need to see it....(wasn't in 3D here..so no opinion on it..yet..might go to Springfield and see in 3D too)...

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)
½

I really enjoyed and loved this movie...I like that it was more about the man than the suit!! Loved Pepper being a little bad assed..LOL..Loved Guy Pearce as the quriky nerd at the beginning then his handsome self the rest of the movie...AND..of Robert Downey Jr...his quirkiness...his intelligence..Oh..yes..he is quite handsome too ;-) ...The action scenes were good..but showing his weaknesses in this movie ..really drew me in....Can't wait for next one...and/or next Avenger movie!!!

42
42(2013)

An inspirational biography of not only Jackie Robinson, but Branch Rickey too!!..This was a great telling of the prejudice of the time toward change in the baseball world of allowing a black man in to a supposed 'white' man game...I am sure ALOT was not shown of other things that happened, but I like that it's a movie kids could see and enjoy about a man that made a difference!!! I will say that Harrison Ford's performance of Rickey was "Oscar" caliber for me...a true actor becoming the character he is playing...and I will be following Chadwick Boseman's career (Jackie Robinson)...he just lights up the screen with his performance!!! My only negative was that it ended...I wanted it movie to continue...telling more about Robinson and his life.

Oblivion
Oblivion(2013)

Visually loved it..but the story was a bit disconnected..the connection between it all was hard to grasp...The beginning of the story was slow to develop and then they tried to throw the whole reasoning for everything in the last 20 mins!!!....Glad I saw in a theater....

The Impossible

An amazing movie that makes you think what you would do to survive such a disaster!! Great acting by adults and kids....a bit predictable..but still an amazing true story..

Parental Guidance

No matter what reviewers said...this is a good and funny movie...it is what it is...I love Billy Crystal and Bette Midler...so I really enjoyed the movie...it had some good sentimental parts too...A good view of different generations of families..and how bringing up kids/families have changed...but we all still want the same things...

Life of Pi
Life of Pi(2012)

Enjoyed the movie..but not sure what to think of it...Slow at first , but had me crying by the end..and I'm not sure why...LOL..Glad I watched it though...one of those 'different movies' that separates if from others...Now I wonder how the book is and how much of it is missing in the movie!!

Skyfall
Skyfall(2012)
½

Another great Bond movie!!! I am really liking Daniel Craig as Bond...only thing that would have made it better was less 'dark' scenes. The one thing I hate is not being able to see things happy in night scenes. Maybe you were able to see more in the theater..but hard to see some scenes on the DVD...But overall loved it...and loved the so called..changing of the guard....!!!!

The Master
The Master(2012)

Another movie i wanted to really like..but it didn't grab my attention within the first 30 mins so turned it off....oh well....

Alex Cross
Alex Cross(2012)
½

I REALLY wanted to like this..love the Cross series by Patterson...but something just didn't click in this movie...I loved Morgan Freeman in this roll in Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls....and I like Tyler...but...if just really dragged....

Paranormal Activity 4
½

Hoped there was something left for this 4th one...but it sputtered out for me....same ole same ole....didn't even scare me or make me jump once!!

Marvel's The Avengers
½

Enjoyed...but almost too many heroes to follow and each trying to get screen time it seemed....but still liked the story and action!!!!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
½

Loved this movie!! Sweet, honest,sad and amazing...I can't wait to see how Emma Watson develops as an actress as she gets older...great movie about the 'wallflowers' some of us were growing up..and how they struggle to be seen...by someone.....Must SEE!!

Argo
Argo(2012)
½

Amazing good movie about a time period that was a messed up chaos...Great detail to the story and strong characters make this a movie that could take the Oscar from Lincoln....Loved Affleck..(as actor and director)...and Goodman and Arkin make a great team....Love the beard to Ben!! ;-)

Silver Linings Playbook

I loved this movie!!! A story with good acting!! I really hadn't been a big fan of Bradley Cooper..but he really shines in this movie!! Some strong messages about different types of mental illnesses ....but intermixed with some funny moments...Jennifer Lawrence is marvelous as usual...DeNiro even plays a parent trying to make his relationship with his son work....You HAVE to see this movie!!!

Looper
Looper(2012)

Giving this 4 stars...but still thinking about whether I really liked it..LOL...Maybe if I watch it again sometime?? It was a 'dark' movie in that it was hard to see some scenes sometimes because the lighting was not good......but very interesting story/concept....and I like anything with Bruce in it..and loving Gordon-Levitt more each time I see one of his movies!!!

Beasts of the Southern Wild

I would place this in the 'docu' movie category. I felt like I was watching a documentary more than a movie from beginning to end. I don't know what all the buzz is about it, but it was an interesting story to watch. It definitely is NOT for everyone.....

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
½

Enjoyed the movie, but was slow at first. It picked up steam as the story went along and pulled me in just as it ended!!! now I have to wait for the next one!!! Saw it in 3D, which probably wasn't necessary, but did enjoy the scenes where it really showed the 3D . Not screaming out to everyone to see, but it was worth seeing....

Les MisÚrables

Amazing movie!! Tugs at your heart, makes you melt into the scenery...and what great acting and singing by Jackman ,Crowe, Hathaway and everyone!!! The music is enthralling to the visual scenery we see of France. An amazing cast of characters that makes you want to go watch it again...now!!

Hysteria
Hysteria(2012)

Cute movie with an amusing subject...but really doesn't go anywhere...but love the banter between the characters! didn't even recognize Rupert Everett until half way through the movie!!!LOL

The Raven
The Raven(2012)

It was ok...love John Cusak but didn't seem to have a good storyline or keep my attention...

Moonrise Kingdom

Loved this movie...very whimsical and charming...loved the cast too!! Along the lines of "Rushmore," and "The Royal Tenenbaums" .

Cloud Atlas
Cloud Atlas(2012)
½

I can't think of a better description of the movie then what it shows here on rotten tomatoes..so sharing it ---- "Its sprawling, ambitious blend of thought-provoking narrative and eye-catching visuals will prove too unwieldy for some, but the sheer size and scope of Cloud Atlas are all but impossible to ignore.

Never once looked at my watch....got drawn into each story....and talking about it after the movie...my 3 signs that I love this movie!!! Can't wait to read the book now....

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

An enjoyable movie with an amazing cast!!! Comedy, drama, romance...a little bit of everything...

Hope Springs
Hope Springs(2012)

Really enjoyed this ....Love Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep!!! Sweet and funny...just a good hearted movie!!!

The Dark Knight Rises

Enjoyed the movie!! Beginning was a little weird and it was a bit hard to understand "Bane"..but overall have loved Christopher Bale as Batman hate to see him NOT be Batman anymore...Anne Hathaway did a great job as Catwoman...and I can't wait to see what they do with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the futre ;-).

Magic Mike
Magic Mike(2012)

Visually nice!!!...but the storyline dragged and was very choppy. In my opinion, not enough erotic dancing and too much grinding all the time!!! LOL...Loved seeing Matthew ...to be honest if he hadn't been in it..probably would not have seen it!!

Brave
Brave(2012)
½

Loved the look of the movie, the story and Merida's red hair!! The music was fun to listen to and it made me laugh...so that is good...but I wouldn't put it in my top 5 favorite movies...Not sure what it was...maybe a male companion/friend/foe for her...but seemed to miss something!! But would recommend...

Rock of Ages
Rock of Ages(2012)

I am giving this a 5..mainly because any movie that makes me want to sit and watch it AGAIN right now...is an awesome movie!! LOVED the music...loved the singing..loved the corniness, loved the actors..and loved the cameos of a number of people !!! I REALLY want to see the broadway show now..to see the differences..which my sister says there are....NOT a serious movie..take it for what is...outrageous!!

Men in Black III

Loved it!! Ending was unexpected..but really enjoyed it! I love Will...love Tommy, but LOVE Josh!!!

Prometheus
Prometheus(2012)

Enjoyed it..but not enough character development...loved the tech stuff they had, but left me wanting more from it...

Snow White and the Huntsman
½

Enjoyed it...not wow...but it was not bad...Love Chris Hemsworth..but more as Thor!! ;-)

Captain America: The First Avenger
½

I wasn't sure what to expect ...it was slow at the beginning and I almost turned it off...BUT..it did get better. Not quite my type of action movie, or maybe it was the whole 'Hitler' "Schmidt' WWII time frame...

Thor
Thor(2011)

Can you tell I enjoyed it!! 5 stars!! and their making another one ..coming out next year!! Might have to buy the DVD..just to 'see' him every day!! :-P ...Love Natalie , Anthony and Stellan!!!

We Bought a Zoo

Really enjoyed this movie...good story and loved the animals.. The little girl was soooo cute!! Will be interesting to see her grow up (if she stays in movies!)

Carnage
Carnage(2011)

Love the cast...but this probably should have stayed as a play. It kept my attention, but wasn't much to it...Not for everyone..

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

I wasn't sure whether to see this one, but glad I did! It's a well made movie..yes.it made me cry and reminds me of 9/11...but the story is so much more!!

The Cabin in the Woods

Interesting movie!!! Not as 'scary' as I hoped, but it made up for that by being funny, strange and unique!!! Love all the different angles this movie works from and just the whole concept of the movie!! ..Now..how can they make Part 2?? LOL

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol

I actually loved this one!! Enjoyed each of the different agents and how they bounced off each other too!! and I hear #5 will be made too!!....Love love loved...Jeremy Renner..you can have Tom..give me more Jeremy!!

The Hunger Games

First..I loved the movie!!!...but I wanted more!!! seemed to move fast from one scene to the next..didn't stay in one place for long...But..this is how I felt about the book...felt like the book was like a 'setup' for book 2 and 3!!! which i loved!!! Can't wait for the next movie...fall 2013!!!

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Enjoyed the movie and Rooney Mara was really did a great job as Lisbeth..but the original one was better...

Moneyball
Moneyball(2011)
½

Loved this movie...Brad..oh Brad..what can I say...you get more handsome every day... ;-) ...really reminds me of Robert Redford in this movie!!!

The Adventures of Tintin
½

Enjoyed the movie...could have done more with it..simple story...we shall see if they make another!!!

21 Jump Street

OK..didn't think I would like it..but it was really funny...might even watch a sequel if they make one!! Loved the cameos!!!

The Woman in Black
½

It was good but not overly scary. An old-fashioned, British ghost story filled with more chills than gore...If you expect a horror movie, it's not!! Radcliffe is getting more handsome as he gets older and he does a good job here, with what he has to work with.... I look forward to his next movie!!

Real Steel
Real Steel(2011)
½

This started off slow for me and i wasn't sure I would like it at first. As the story progressed and we learned more of the story..it got better...and the ending pulled me right in ...and cheering for the underdog!!! AND..of course Hugh is in it...so..of course watched the whole movie!!!

Paranormal Activity 3

Can't believe they made another one..and another one is being made!! Yet, there seemed to be more story to this one..and it did make me jump a few times...just can't believe I sat and watched a screen tick off seconds of watching people sleep!! LOL...

Contagion
Contagion(2011)

Good movie..but really makes you think now about all you touch each day...scary something like this could happen...excuse me while i wash my hands..LOL

The Descendants
½

Really enjoyed the movie!!

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
½

I liked the movie, though the plot was a little scrambled to me. Love the slow mo action scenes!! Always enjoy Downey ..and Law was good as always!! but..I really was excited to see Noomi Rapace in something other then the Dragon Tattoo character (swedish version).,,she is an amazing actress! Definitely glad I went to see this...even got the WHOLE theater to myself to see it!!!

Cowboys & Aliens

Good and enjoyable movie...storyline a little weak, but enjoyed the two subjects together (cowboys and aliens)...AND..I would watch ANYTHING with Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in it!! :-p Worth watching..but would have rather seen in a theater..a few dark, night scenes that are hard to see on DVD.

War Horse
War Horse(2011)

Saw "War Horse" today....I really enjoyed this cinematic wonder of a movie! Totally agree with these comments on Rotten Tomato site: "Technically superb, proudly sentimental, and unabashedly old-fashioned, War Horse is an emotional drama that tugs the heartstrings with Spielberg's customary flair."

Sarah's Key
Sarah's Key(2011)
½

A historical film on the Holocaust that moved me tears in places. The last quarter of the story was uneven and jumped around and almost lost my interest, but it was worth watching to the end. Love Kristen Scott Thomas..!!

Green Lantern

Green Lantern was better than I thought it would be...think it would have been better by being a little less dorky..

Midnight in Paris

An interesting and different movie...love Woody Allen movies!!! I can relate to the Owen Wilson character wanting a life different from their own...in a different time and place. It was fun trying to figure out some of the characters from the past whose names you might remember!!! The ending kind of came to a halt for me..but still really enjoyed the movie!!! If you like Paris..and the French language..you will really like it!!!

Snow Flower And The Secret Fan
½

I really wanted to like this movie..but as alot of reviews have said..the emotional side just didn't tug at me when it probably should have. I didn't get a chance to read the novel first, but am guessing much of the story was left out. The panning back and forth between time periods seemed inconsistent and jagged at times that made the story confusing. Hugh Jackman had a small part....wish IT had been more!!!

Hugo
Hugo(2011)
½

An innocent tale of an orphaned boy living in a train station attending to the clocks. A cinematic masterpiece by Scorsese telling a story, but wanting us to know we need to help preserve the films An amazingly visual movie that tells more that one story. I love the cast of this movie!!! Even the supporting cast members are fun to watch as side characters at the train station!! Sacha Baron Cohen was never my favorite actor, but I really liked him as the mean Station Inspector!!...Chloe Moretz plays Isabelle, Hugo's friend in the movie...she is just adorable..and one to watch out for in future films!! BUT...Ben Kingsley, to me at least, is central to this story. You don't realize his importance until we get further in to the film, but he is an amazing actor that I enjoy watching.I love old movies!! and this one kind of gives homage to the old b/w and silent movies!! It even made me want to look in to the history of films more...how they made movies back then and now?? wow...how different can it be!!The only downside I saw to the movie was it moved rather slowly in parts...but not enough for me to think negativelyabout the movie. The only thing now....it has made me want to read the book now!!! and there is a sequel to the book...will there be another movie??? We shall see!!!

17 Miracles
17 Miracles(2011)

Really enjoyed this film..more of a documentary than entertainment film, but was still really good and informative about the Morman movement!

Insidious
Insidious(2011)
½

I really wanted to like the scary movie...BUT...I had to stop it about 30mins...I was sooo bored...it was slow getting to what was happening..maybe I didn't wait long enough..but...it just dragged...Maybe I will try it again sometime....So...th 1.5 stars..isn't really fair since I didn't watch the whole thing...but oh well ;-)

The Adjustment Bureau
½

I give this 3.5 stars..it was good, fun movie and loved the concept...think it could have been a bit better if the 'adjustment' process was explained better...but overall loved the story and actors!!

I Am Number Four
½

This was actually better than I expected!! Kinda corny dialogue in places, but the story was pretty good!!

Horrible Bosses

Very funny movie!! Love Jason Bateman..and at first didn't recognize Colin Firth...but loved his character!!! Alot of good actors in this one...If you want a good laugh..see it!!!

Larry Crowne
Larry Crowne(2011)

Good, fun movie...love Tom and Julia and wish it was more about the 2 of them...but focus seemed more on "Larry"...Loved seeing all the supporting cast in the film!! From Foxy Brown to Cedria the Entertainer to Lt. Sulu!!! A relaxing and good laugh movie to see!!

True Grit
True Grit(2010)
½

It wasn't as good as I thought it would be...but it was ok..Love Jeff Bridges...but character was almost to 'gruff' around the edges!!! Still love the original more!!! ;-)

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

I love this series and really hope they keep it going. This one was a bit darker then the others, but I still enjoyed it!!

Tron Legacy

½

Actually really enjoyed this!! Love all the effects..much better than the original!! LOL

TRON
TRON(1982)

Thought I had seen this years ago..but after watching it..I don't think I really did!! Interesting to see all the techno names used at the time that are everyday now!! Ok movie, but hard to follow a little bit...I had forgotten that Bozleitner was in it!!!

Megamind
Megamind(2010)

Cute movie and a few laughs...but was just ok..for me ;-)

Black Swan
Black Swan(2010)

Saw this earlier this week...ummm..the end made me still have questions...and it was a BIT strange...but Natalie Portman was good!! ;-)

The King's Speech

Absolutely loved this movie!! Of course, Colin Firth is in it so I would love it anyway, but this was really a good movie!! The acting and writing were amazing!!

127 Hours
127 Hours(2010)

This is just like watching a documentary. Not much of a story, other than him trying to save himself. Glad I watched, but not one I would watch again!!

Tangled
Tangled(2010)

Really enjoyed! Fun movie!!

Burlesque
Burlesque(2010)
½

I really enjoyed the movie! Loved seeing an amazing cast from Cher, Stanley Tucci to Alan Cumming!!! Christina Aguilera can really sing, but her acting was the worst part of the movie!! BUT..I still recommend it!! Would love to have seen MORE Cher and Julianne Hough!!! oh..I love the music and all the Burlesque dancing!!

The Lincoln Lawyer

Really enjoyed this movie!! All-star cast!! Especially...Matthew and my Trace!! Good story and suspense!!

The Social Network
½

I enjoyed watching the movie, but wow they talked way too fast sometimes!!! Don't know why Eisenberg got nominated for best actor Oscar...his character/acting was kind of bland...

Unknown
Unknown(2011)

I thought it was pretty thrilling movie! Great twist to the story and always love Liam Neeson!!

This movie has gotten mixed reviews, so I wasn't sure whether I would like it..but I did! I enjoyed the journey she went through..and can relate on some levels...gonna have to read the book now!!

The Ugly Truth

I rather enjoyed this movie!! Gerard Butler was good in it.. ;-) oh..and so was that girl in the movie too...LOL...

How to Train Your Dragon

I loved this movie!! Great story with life lessons for kids (and adults!)!! Toothless was soooo cute!!! If you haven't seen it...you should!

The Expendables

I loved the star power in this movie..that is why I gave it 3 stars!!..the movie itself disappointed me :-(
1. Too dark - Most of the movie is seen at night..you can't see most of the action or who is fighting who!!
2. Action was way too fast when you could see it!
3. Sly and Jason were the best 'parts' of the movie!!
Glad I waited for the DVD!!

Morning Glory

This was a funny movie! Really enjoyed it! Great mix of casting!!

Secretariat
Secretariat(2010)

I HIGHLY recommend this movie! A very moving story of Secretariat and the people around him! Diane Lane is awesome in this role, but even the rest of the cast were perfect for each of their roles! I learned some new things I didn't know about the horse's history, which makes me want to read more about it!!!
Make sure to bring some kleenex!!!

I really enjoyed this movie!! Laughed alot, great action, and the cast is amazing!! I would definitely recommend!!!

An interesting movie with great performances by Colin Firth and Julianne Moore, but very sad. Not a movie for everyone..but was worth watching the DVD!

Who wouldn't love this movie!?! Best part counting how many toys I played with as a kid!!

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Finally got to watch the whole movie!! Really liked it..and can't wait to watch the next one!! Side note: really reminds me of the World of Warcraft world!! LOL

Winter's Bone

A little slow but a well made movie. Just hope everyone doesn't think ALL of Missouri is full of meth labs!!

The Proposal
The Proposal(2009)

I love Sandra Bulllock and Ryan Reynolds is too fun!!! Loved the whole cast and laughed throughout the movie!!! Recommend!!

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

I think I actually liked it better than the first two!! I'm going to have to read the books though..some things that came up went by too quick for me..LOL...I would definitely recommend this one!

Sex and the City 2

I enjoyed the movie, but they really overdid Samantha's character's issues/antics this time..The girls still show that through good and bad...friends will always be friends!!

Letters to Juliet

I loved the simple story..Im a romantic at heart..so even though you know what happens...I still cried in a few places!! Love Vanessa Redgrave...and the scenery is gorgeous...Would love to visit Verona!

2012
2012(2009)

Pretty good..some things were a bit corny...but overall enjoyed it!

Shutter Island

I really enjoyed the movie. I did think it was going to be more of a 'scary' movie, but was more of a psychological thriller...Will be curious to see how close the movie was to the book...so hope to read it sometime!!

Crazy Heart
Crazy Heart(2009)

Really enjoyed this movie! Jeff Bridges does an amazing job!! Love the music in it too!

Sherlock Holmes

Loved this movie!! It didn't let me down!! Visually it was amazing...story was well written...loved the characters...only down was that the 'military' was in a bit too much for me ;-) hahaha...wanted more of the characters!! I saw it in 3d...and it was incredible!! It would be interesting to see if it would be possible to make a sequel of this??? Everyone should go see it!

The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

This was good...but not as good as I hoped..Good action and acting by Denzel and John...but the story was kind of flat to me!

Up

½

This was really an amazing movie! Love, old age, kids and dogs all shared time in the movie!! If you get a chance ..see this whether at the theater or on DVD!

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

I loved it!! A few too many 'brooding' times with Bella, but overall enjoyed it!

District 9
District 9(2009)

It was just ok...interesting storyline..but wouldn't go running out to see...

Duplicity
Duplicity(2009)
½

I wanted to like this one...but I struggled to watch it. The beginning to me was slow and confusing...so..I didn't even end up watching the whole thing. Love Clive Owens and Julia Roberts...but they just didn't click for me!! Maybe it just wasn't for me....try renting it and see what u think!

Adventureland

Not to bad...brought back the days when I worked at Adventureland Park in Iowa...30yrs ago!!! Good one to have rented!

Heigl's movies are becoming the same character over and over...I wanted to enjoy it ..but it didn't pull me in at all...

It had some good 'scary' moments that made me jump...but the story moved along real slow!

Coraline
Coraline(2009)

It wasn't as good as I was hoping...kind of...blah...

The Time Traveler's Wife
½

I knew I would enjoy it, but the storyline felt choppy to me. Not sure if it was the editing or me knowing another part of the story was missing that was in the book. I'm going to have to go back and read the book now and see how much they missed! It's been a while since I read it. I would still recommend the movie!!

Transformers

Really enjoyed this movie..felt more like a documentary. Loved Rourke and Tomei! Wanted more in the ending..but would recommend!

Seven Pounds
Seven Pounds(2008)

I was looking forward to see this one, but it didn't really pull me in. It was real slow telling you exactly what was going on..but in a way that is what made it mysterious. It could have been better by telling a bit more about the storyline..but I love Will Smith..so he was enjoyable. Rosario Dawson was really good, but not enough on screen time for Woody..think he has maybe 10 lines... Im on the line with this one..see it..but don't expect to be blown away

The Reader
The Reader(2008)

Very intriguing story...love Kate Winslet in this role and thought David Kross should have gotten a lot more raves on his role than he did. Not a movie for kids..there is quite a bit of nudity..tastefully shown though.

Good acting..not so good story..very weak!

A Walk on the Moon

Twilight
Twilight(2008)

Loved it...now to read the book and compare!! Can't wait for the next one!

Rachel Getting Married
½

I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie. It used handheld cameras to show the story. The story was interesting, but left alot of holes for me in some of the storylines. I can see why Anne Hathaway got nominated...great acting!

Changeling
Changeling(2008)

This was a really good movie, though the story seemed a little choppy and didn't flow in some place. Amazing true story..

Burn After Reading

A very quirky movie..funny...strange..but plenty of eye candy to past the time ;-)

Slumdog Millionaire

What an amazing movie!! Great story, great music!! Everyone should see this...loved it!! You won't really know what the buzz about this movie is until you see it!! Never looked at my watch once!!

One of my ALL time favorite movies! I love all the songs and Barbra is just awesome in this movie!

Untraceable
Untraceable(2008)

Good and interesting story with a good twist. The internet can be dangerous place!! The story felt a bit choppy at times, for instance, at first they hid the killers face..and then then next time they show it..no reason given..just weird to me..But Diane Lane was great! And Colin Hanks (Tom's son) was awesome too!! Go see it!

The Bucket List

Great movie! Great cast! You laugh, cry and makes you think all at the same time!!
