I'm not exactly sure why people decided to remake this movie. They had many talented singers in this movie, so buy the soundtrack and you'll be fine.

This is a movie about a dramatic arts high school. The problem with the story line is that it should be too overly dramatic, but instead, there wasn't enough drama. Note to film makers: it is better to be a little overly dramatic rather than make me bored to death while watching a film.

There was nothing to make me care about the characters in this film. In fact, at one point, one of the characters tries to commit suicide and I was so emotionally detached from the characters that I couldn't have cared less.

This movie is tolerable if you are under twelve and you can't find your DVD of Up.

Note: There are spoliers in this review, but anyone who didn't know that the main girl dies obviously hasn't been watching movies long.

There are some movies that will have you saying "the shat is about to hit the fan. i repeat. the shat is about to hit the fan." This is one of those movies.

For those of you who read my review of Rear Window, you know I am a huge Alfred Hitchcock fan. I think he is a genius who defines a genre.

Take Psycho for example, a true masterpiece of the horror genre. You think you have the movie figured out, and then it makes you doubt yourself countless times.

You find yourself thinking, "Oh, he can't kill her yet. We're no where near the end of the movie. She's the main character!" And then he kills her.

Hitchcock even makes you pity little Norman Bates. He's just a shy, awkward guy with mommy issues, after all. But he's not. And that's the worst case of "mommy issues" I've ever seen.

And you find yourself at the climax, a true masterpiece where Hitchcock replaces horror with suspense for the sake of the story. This comes to a haunting conclusion that featurs the creepiest "mother" voice known to man.

Hitchcock, I salute you.

I liked Post-Grad about as much as I liked All About Steve. It wasn't a giant suck-bomb, but it was pretty bad.

You'd think with actors like Jane Lynch and Michael Keaton, some funny would come from this movie. I mean, Alexis Bledel was really funny on Gilmore Girls. But somehow, the only laughter I managed was awkward laughter at some of the "this COULD be funny" jokes.

I watched this with my mom she thought it was great. But if it's any indication, she also thought Bledel's love interest was, and I quote, "dreamy". Her words, not mine.

It wasn't horrid, but it really didn't hit good either.

Rear Window

Not only is this one of my favorite movies of all time, but this is one of my favorite Jimmy Stewart movies of all time. Alfred Hitchcock truely shows his perfection in this suspensful story about a bored photographer who was stuck inside his home.

Each character is casted wonderfully and Hitchcock never made a single mistake throughout the entire film. Each shot frames the emotion of the film beautifully and keeps you enthralled.

There's a reason why Alfred Hitchcock is the King of Suspense.
