Movie Ratings and Reviews

Silver Linings Playbook

Silver Linings Playbook is so underrated in the box office right now. It has a strong cast. Bradley Coopers best performance, yes even better than the Hangover. Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro are amazing together and their chemistry like that is rare on set today. It doesn't fall into the romantic comedy genre, because it is not the typical rom com. It's meaningful and realistic. Most importantly, after you get up and walk away, it sticks with you and makes you feel a little differently than when you first started it. That's what movies are meant to do.

Half Nelson
Half Nelson(2006)

Ever since I watched Blue Valentine I've been on a Ryan Gosling binge. This is one of his greatest performances. He plays a teacher who becomes deeply involved with drugs and when one of his students (Shareeka Epps) witnesses it, they start a meaningful relationship that effects both of their lives. Half Nelson is a interesting, original story. Gosling makes it worth the watch.

Blue Valentine
½

Blue Valentine depicts the hardships of real relationships. It's raw and devastating. Gosling and Williams performance is powerful enough to bring you to tears.Blue Valentine is one of the truest love stories ever told.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

After reading the book, I was uneasy when I heard rumors of a film being released. The Perks of Being A Wallflower is now one of my favorite films. Unlike many movies based on films, it stays true and genuine. The soundtrack is catchy and likable (especially Heroes by David Bowie). Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller are really talented young actors. Also, Dylan McDermott, Paul Rudd and Kate Walsh spiced everything up a bit. Kudos to Stephen Chbosky for creating a wonderful book and script that people of all ages can relate to.

The King's Speech

One of the greatest movies that I've ever seen in the past decade. Colin Firth has proven himself to be a top notch actor. The King's Speech is one of the best.

Young Adult
Young Adult(2011)

Young Adult includes amazing performances by Charlize Theron and Patton Oswalt. It might not be for everyone, because it does not follow the basic story rules. The main character Mavis has dramatic need and conflict but she lacks change. The story might lack some things but it has incredible emotional depth. It's something different and fresh. I highly recommend it.

The Artist
The Artist(2011)

A silent movie about silent movies. The Artist is an instant classic. It has so much heart and soul.

Life of Pi
Life of Pi(2012)

There are many words that can describe Life of Pi, but the most adequate is wow. This is truly mind blowing as far as special effects, and towards the end everyone in the audience wants a Richard Parker. I would put this film right beside Avatar.

Lincoln
Lincoln(2012)

Lincoln is beautiful from the cast to the cinematography. A must see for all history buffs.

The Deep Blue Sea

What I love about The Deep Blue Sea is that it contains only the most vital parts of the story. There are no boring, uninteresting scenes. It's straight to the point and very emotional.

Broken English
½

There's something about Parker Posey and Melvil Poudpaud that propels this movie past the usual Romantic comedy genre.

Watership Down
½

This is far too deep and disturbing to be considered a children's film. Even though Watership Down contains simple animation and personified animals, it is a very dark and dramatic adult film. If you can look past the childlike aspects of the movie you will that it is actually deep and meaningful. It touches all the bases that a good film needs such as soundtrack, script, and most importantly, it makes you think about how humans really affect nature.

Sinister
Sinister(2012)

Sinister doesn't bring anything new to the horror genre. It's predictable, and the scares are cheap. Maybe it would be less predictable if they didn't show the most shocking scenes in the trailers.

Punch-Drunk Love

This is Adam Sandler at his best. This doesn't excuse him for all the terribly characters he portrayed after this. It is incredibly quirky and well scripted. I love it. I think I will watch it again.

Detachment
Detachment(2012)

It's true that Detachment will make you feel like hell. Its lack of conclusion, leaves the audience with a feeling of depression and hopelessness. That's exactly what makes Detachment so pure. It doesn't fake it. It's completely original. Kudos to the all star cast, of course.

The Moth Diaries

I never thought I'd say this, but there is actually a movie worse than Twilight. It's called The Moth Diaries and it's about teenage girls at a prep school. One girl thinks another girl is a monster. So predictable and the blood bath towards the end when Ernessa slits her wrist, Carrie much? This film lacks verisimilitude and gore. Two vital parts of any teen horror flick.

The Fog
The Fog(1979)
½

The Fog might not be a classic, but it's a chilling ghost story without all the gore.

The Seven Year Itch

Billy Wilder. Marilyn Monroe. Enough said.

Cursed
Cursed(2005)
½

Firstly, the movie info is way wrong. Who is Nao Shingaki? Secondly, this movie deserves at least a 30%. Cursed brought a new look to the werewolf genre. Christina Ricci and Jesse Eisenberg really compliment eachother.

Lost In Translation

Bill Murray and Scarlet Johansson play two people who are alienated, alone, and suffering from insomnia. They meet in Tokyo, both of them are married to people they don't connect with anymore, but they begin an innocent friendship. Thank you Sofia Copolla for writing such an amazing story. I will always ask myself What does he whisper in her ear....

500 Days of Summer

It goes above and beyond what you would expect from a modern romance. Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Girl doesn't. It is totally original, realistic, and quirky. The plot follows Tom and Summer in a nonlinear narrative. Marc Webb created a masterpiece.

The Omen
The Omen(1976)

The Omen has it's small problems but it's a landmark in the horror genre. Kudos to the creepy score, it really helps set the scene and intensify the evil growing in Damien.

The Candidate

The Candidate is an ageless masterpiece. The handsome and talented Robert Redford plays lawyer turned politician. When Bill McCay (Redford) is asked to run for senate, Marvin Lucas (Boyle) promises him that he can say whatever he wants. The catch is he cannot win the race again Crocker (the enemy Republican). Unlike many political movies, The Candidate sneaks in many surprises and laughs.
One of the best moments is when McCay is walking through a crowd of fans. An older man offers him a hot dog. McCay takes it and then,out of nowhere, the man punches him square in the face. When he can't get a soda out of the machine, he loses his cool and attacks it. McCay is late for a television appearance, and when he arrives he gets a fit of the giggles. Another great scene-When he's in the back of the car, and he just starts making weird faces and gives us the peace sign. All of these tiny moments makes this movie unique and hilarious.
In many ways The Candidate reminded me of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Robert Redford is as lovable and contagious as James Stewart. It absolutely deserves the Oscar it won for writing.
There's a quote in the beginning that many probably overlook, but to me it defies the whole movie completely. A gentlemen walks up to McCay after his first speech and says"I've heard it all before, but never quite like that".
I've seen a fair amount of election movies, and none of them are quite like The Candidate.

The Possession
½

The Possession isn't original in any ways. It's your average, overplayed, overrated, over-watched, demonic possession movie that has been made a hundred times before. It's creepy and jumpy. And it's gets an A+ as far as acting goes but that's all. This is a waste of money. I hate that I spent 8 dollars on this.

The Loved Ones

SPOILERS!
The Loved Ones is an Australian cult horror flick that will seriously creep you out! The first scene shows Brent and his father driving down the road when a bloody man appears in front of them causing Brent to swerve into a tree. His father is killed in the accident. Six Months later, Brent is asked by Lola to the school dance. Brent declines her request, because he has a girlfriend. Lola spies on the two of them having sex (PYSCHO!) Later, Brent goes rock climbing and is kidnapped and taken by Lola's father. He wakes up tied to a chair in Lola's kitchen, which has been decorated to look like a dance floor. Lola injects him with bleach so he can no longer speak or scream. She tortures him while her father and Bright Eyes watch. After she forces him to urinate in a cup, he almost escapes. Brent gets nailed through his feet. The scariest part is that he can't really scream. It's just a horse horrible whisper.
Throughout the story hints show Lola and her father have an unhealthy relationship. I think it's really weird, but very original. The same boy who run out in front of Brent's car is also one of Lola's former victims. Lola carves her initials into his chest. EEEEK! All the while, Brent's friend is getting some at the school dance. Why is this necessary? I don't think it is, and this is my only problem with the plot. Lola's father crowns her queen and it's all very eerie and uncomfortable when the two of them dance together and almost kiss. Lola and her obsessive father starts drilling a hole through Brents head to lobotomize him like the rest of the boys. The sound of it is enough to give you goosebumps. They start to pour water in the hole when Brent attacks and kills Lola's father. Brent and him both end up in the basement where there are other lobotomized victims. They eat Lola's father! Yeah- Hills have eyes much? Lola suffocates her mother (Bright Eyes). It's never revealed what exactly happened to her, but it's good to leave some things to the imagination. Brent's girlfriend finds his diary and discovers it was Lola who kidnapped him. Lola kills the cop who walks into the house, and then she heads off to Brent's home where she plans on killing his mom. Brent escapes by climbing up the piled of bones to the door. He hits Lola with the car, and saves his girlfriend who was running from Lola. THE BEST PART- Lola (still alive) begins crawling on her elbows towards the car. just like a zombie (really great make-up) Brent backs the car up right into her head. HAPPY ENDING all hugs and relief.
Fantastic horror movie even though it wonders a little and gets a bit slow. I highly recommend it for anyone with a strong stomach, because there are some very grotesque scenes.

21 Jump Street
½

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum? You can't really go wrong with a match like that.

Paranormal Activity 3
½

It was definitely scary, I jumped quite a few times. But the trailers made it out to be a lot scarier than it was. I think about half the things in the trailers were cut from the actual movie. I wish the ending didn't ruin the whole movie, but it did.

Blue Steel
Blue Steel(1990)
½

Even though Blue Steel wasn't a huge success, I still believe Kathryn Bigelow brings something new to the crime-thriller genre with this movie. There's something extremely uneasy and eerie about the obsession Eugene (the killer) has with Megan (the protagonist rookie police officer). The audience is never fully aware of Eugene's sickness, and that's what's so original about it. And putting Jamie Lee Curtis as the strong female lead is genius. This is not even close to being the best thriller, but it's worth watching.

Howl
Howl(2010)

I believe this film itself is a powerful piece of art. It gives us a deep look inside the amazing poet Allen Ginsberg. I think James Franco proved to be perfect for this character. I highly recommend it despite what the more popular critics may say.

Chinatown
Chinatown(1974)

Chinatown is timeless. Even though it is set in the uncertain times of the 70's, this movie never seems to age. To watch Faye Dunaway and young Jack Nicholson on screen together is a real treat. Dunaway plays the mysterious, striking widow and Nicholson plays the witty and aggressive detective trying to solve her deceased husbands death and the evil plot behind it. Chinatown is slow, but it's beautifully crafted.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

I tend to dislike most romantic comedies. I even find romance films to be overrated and boring. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind has won my heart. It's quirky instead of erotic. It seems so much more real then the generic rom coms made today. Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet have this powerful chemistry throughout the whole film that I couldn't really put my finger on. If you are searching for a totally original, underrated, beautifully crafted film full of talented actors and actress's this is the romance for you. I promise long after the end credits you will still be thinking deeply about your own love story.

Memento
Memento(2000)

The smooth transition between color and black and white, choosing Guy Pearce over Brad Pitt, traveling backwards from the beginning, all these elements make this a Must-See-Before You-Die-Film. Christopher and Jonathon Nolan are a dream team. What I think is so catchy about this plot is the themes it hits. It touches everything, grief, revenge, murder, self-denial, passion, mystery, betrayal. What more can you ask for?

Alice (Neco z Alenky)

Alice is a fascinating and refreshing spin on this classic tale. Unlike Disney's version, Alice is eerie and dark. All the stop-motion really helps push this film above and beyond all the other versions. Although some scenes are a bit disturbing, I recommend it over Tim Burtons or Disney's.

Jeff Who Lives at Home
½

Jeff is one of those charming, quirky movies that gets under your skin and makes you want to go out and find your destiny.

The Evil Dead
½

Extremely creepy, gory, grotesque, and bizarre. Low budget and fake body parts squirting white puss definitely didn't make this any less then a classic horror movie.

Ted
Ted(2012)
½

I don't understand all the negative reviews. Honestly, I laughed my ass off the whole time and then I almost cried when Ted got ripped in half. If you don't enjoy Family Guy, why go and see the first film created by Seth Macfarlane? Ted is a truly hilarious movie filled with good actors and an original script. Thumbs up to Seth Macfarlane.

Amélie
Amélie(2001)

110% This is without a doubt, one of the most perfect films ever created.

The Amazing Spider-Man
½

Despite being remade and recast, Spider-Man is truly amazing. The cast has chemistry, which the previous Spider-Man films lacked.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Have to disagree with the critics out there. Obviously, you can't take this movie too seriously. Just look at the title. It was entertaining and that's all you can expect from vampire movies these days. If you go in expecting this great monster film with lots of gore and history facts, you're going to be dissapointed. The monsters were scary, the actors had chemistry, the plot was not predictable, and the fight scenes were pretty damn cool. A+ from me.

Cruel Intentions

If you are a teenager, you will swoon over this movie because of the gorgeous actors and the hot scenes but As an adult, you notice the awful acting by Ryan Phillippe and Selma Blair. I'm pretty sure this movie and all the screwing in it is responsible for Gossip Girl. How embarrassing is that.

The Tree of Life
½

The Tree of Life is really quite beautiful but at some points I could have taken a nap.

The Pirates! Band of Misfits
½

This is a very kid friendly movie and I'm 18 and I loved it. It doesn't reach the great heights that Wallace and Gromit did, but it's fun.

Hesher
Hesher(2011)
½

weird, messed up, odd, difficult, vulgar, but Hesher is still hard not to love because of Levitt.

Submarine
Submarine(2011)
½

This movie is unbelievable. Maybe it's just the combination of quirkiness, darkness, and english accents that pulled me in, but I really enjoyed it. It even made me laugh a few times. Great soundtrack too.

Heavenly Creatures

I found this movie to be extremely disturbing, but it was amazing too. The gore scenes were very unexpected, and they caught me off guard quite a few times.It's dramatic, odd, and one of Peter Jackson's bests.

The Hunger Games
½

This was totally worth waiting in line at midnight for. The Hunger Games stays true to the book. Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence are very talented actors, and they really helped make this movie fantastic. The sountrack is excellent, the costume design is mind blowing, and the scene with Rue is so emotional that it silenced an entire theatre. No one touched their popcorn, no one sipped their sodas, it was absolutely silent when Katniss started singing to little Rue. I was scared that this was going to turn out like another Twilight, a cheap adaptation of the book with bad acting, and a bad cast. That was not the case at all. The Hunger Games is a fantastic movie that blew me away.

The Godfather

I am devasted that I waited this long to experience The Godfather trilogy. This is a legend, because of the detail and depth and acting and photography and everything. This detailed film about the Corleone family is no doubt, the greatest movie I have ever watched. Even forty years later, this has still made a great impact on how I judge movies today. I don't believe any film will ever live up to The Godfather. Ever. Ever.

Dr Seuss' The Lorax
½

The Lorax was directed entirely for people who have a two second attention span. Dr. Seuss' unique style was no where to be found. Although it was cute, had decent effects, and many musical numbers, I was not impressed. The children in the audience enjoyed it and they "awed" at the baby bears, and reached out for the 3-D effects but the parents looked very bored. As was I.

Wallace & Gromit: The First Three Adventures

Thank you Netflix! I freaking love these three short films. Just fantastic and british and hilarious.

Creature from the Black Lagoon
½

I love the underwater scenes. They are beautiful. Creature from the Black Lagoon will make you questions who the monsters are in the world. The predators who stay hidden in the deep, dark places of the world, or the people who go seeking them.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

This is one of my favorite films of all time. Tim Burton's masterpiece. It's magical. There is no simple way to describe it. You just have to experience it yourself.

Monster House

Monster House is a fantastic animated movie about an evil house who eats up anything and anyone who gets close enough to it. It's original and fun and even a bit creepy at times, but it's a genuinely fun movie for all ages.

Just Wright
Just Wright(2010)

Just Wright is just a typical 21st century romance that will bore you almost to death.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2

I remember when I begged my grandmother to buy me Harry Potter and The Sorcerers Stone in 2001. I was enchanted by it. Ten years and three directors later, it still blew me away.

Fright Night
Fright Night(2011)

I prefer this version over the original, but both were excellent. This one is much scarier though. I waited until it was available on Netflix, but I wish I could have seen it in theatres. Fright Night sticks out in the vampire movie category because of it's amazing cast, soundtrack, and special effect.

1984
1984(1984)

An almost perfect version of George Orwell's classic novel.

The Goonies
The Goonies(1985)
½

The Goonies is a fantastic adventure movie. It's a classic. Every time I watch it, I feel at home.

American History X
½

Derek Vinyard is probably one of the greatest characters ever created. Kudos to Edward Norton for his excellent acting. Norton plays a young man with a bright future who is pushed into racism and hate. After shooting two men, he is sent to prison where he realizes his mistakes. When he is released he has to protect his family from the skinheads he betrays. This film touches sensitive subjects, rape, racism, nazism, and it is not for the faint of heart. It's gory and violent and amazing.

The Landlord
The Landlord(1970)

Hal Ashby is a freaking rock star. And that's that.

Beetlejuice
Beetlejuice(1988)

Beetlejuice is a cult classic. A completely uniquie story about a recently deceased couple who want the living family out of their house. In an attempt to rid of the family, they hire a lunatic bio- exorcist. I watch it every Halloween, because it freaks me out and makes my laugh at the same time. The trio of Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Winona Ryder is really what brings this story to life. Michael Keaton is the best man to play Beetljuice, because he doesn't hold anything back. If you haven't watched this yet, do it. Everytime I see a person with an unusually small head, I think of this movie.

Roxanne
Roxanne(1987)
½

A story about a romantic fire chief with a huge nose seems a bit ridiculous, but that's what makes Roxanne so great. It doesn't hold anything back. Some people might think it's sappy and cheap but Steve Martin will make you giggle. And Daryl Hannah will make you swoon. My favorite scene? When C.D. is in the bar making jokes about how big his nose is. "Finally a man who can satisfy two women at once"

Something Borrowed

I wish I could have those two hours of my life back.

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark
½

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark will really make you keep the lights on while you sleep. To sum it up, a man takes his young daughter in when her mother doesn't want her anymore. In the new home he lives in, there are evil, child hungry tooth fairies who want the girl. It's very, very, creepy but that's about it.

The Thing
The Thing(1982)
½

When I first watched The Thing, I was 8 years old. It terrified me. I slept with my parents for a week. Now that I'm older, The Thing is still scary. But now I realize how excellent the acting and writing is. it's a classic.

Harvey
Harvey(1950)

This is probably my favorite James Stewart movie of all time. It's so unique and original, unlike anything you will ever watch. James Stewart plays the town drunk. His sister tries sending him to a hospital, because of his imaginary friend Harvey. Harvey is a six foot tall rabbit. Harvey is a pooka (a tricky mythologic creature) It's hilarious and magical. I laughed so hard my stomach hurt.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
½

It's fun to watch and that's all you can expect from a film starring Robert Downey Jr. The special effects were incredible. What I love about the Sherlock Holmes movies is the slow motion action scenes. They really get you interested.

Let Me In
Let Me In(2010)
½

I have yet to see the original, but this version was excellent. The unlikely friendship between a tiny, abused boy and a lonely child vampire is unique and inspiring. The vampire effects are terrifying, unlike many of the vampire transitions are these days. Chloe Moretz is chilling. This movie is one of my personal favorites.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is fierce and captivating. It stays true to the book. I'm really happy I didn't watch it with my mother, because it's not a family movie. Some scenes are hard to watch without grimacing. Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara have chemistry that makes this the best movie of the year.

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas
½

I don't think I laughed even once. Well, maybe when Harold's junk got stuck to the pole. The jokes were cheap and very offensive. If it wasn't for NPH, I think it would have been the worst christmas movie ever.

Puss in Boots
½

An adorable mess of Jack and Jill, the beanstalk, and Humpty Alexander Dumpty. It's not too deep, but it made me laugh. Sometimes that's all you need from a kids movie, a few genuinely funny moments.

Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror (Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens) (Nosferatu the Vampire)

Im so glad this was on Netflix and I finally got the chance to watch it. No other vampire film will ever live up to this. It's a masterpiece. Nosferatu is truly terrifying.

50/50
50/50(2011)

Underneath this dreary, depressing, cancer movie is a beautiful story that makes you want to cry and laugh at the same moment. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen bring out the best in eachother. I'm also a big fan of the soundtrack. One of the greatest stories told on camera in a long time. Second behind 500 Days of Summer.

Teeth
Teeth(2007)
½

Teeth will make you grimace and laugh at the same time. It's terrifying, but hilarious. Dawn is both the heroine and the villain in this incredible cult classic.

Contagion
Contagion(2011)
½

Contagion doesn't scare you with blood and gore. But it leaves you with voices in the back of your head that suggest someday this could actually happen.

Tangled
Tangled(2010)

It's anything you'd expect from a newer Disney animation. of course it's not anything like the classics, but Tangled is cute and fun for everyone.

A Serious Man

A Serious Man has depth that most movies from the past decades lack. The ending is maybe the best final scene ever, with the tornado approaching and the call from the doctor. I love this movie.

Greenberg
Greenberg(2010)

Ben Stiller at his best.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
½

I can't tell if it was the amazing effects or just James Franco's glorious face, but this movie really won me over. I've never been a big fan of the other Planet of the Apes, but Rise of the Planet was suprisingly fresh and lovable.

Horrible Bosses

Horrible Bosses is a genuinely amusing, entertaining movie due to the charming cast and on screen chemistry.

Super 8
Super 8(2011)
½

Super 8 is a perfect summer movie. It takes you back to a simpler time. Super 8 is a great combination of adventure, suspense, companionship, and emotional depth. What else can you ask for?

X-Men: First Class
½

Compared to Wolverine, X-Men First Class was awesome. It didn't lack in the suspense department, and the actors had great chemistry. It's been a while since a really great super hero film has been made. Go watch it!

Life Is Beautiful (La Vita è bella)

A beautiful and emotional film. If you haven't watched this Academy Award winner yet, you should definitely put it on your list. I will warn you though, the film takes a giant leap from being whimsical to being dark. I can't tell if my tears were because a father made the ultimate sacrifice for his son or if they were caused by the reunion between a mother and her child. It was absolutely wonderful.

Easy A
Easy A(2010)
½

Emma Stone is quirky, sassy, and completely irresistible. Easy A brings in a breeze of fresh air into the teen movie genre.

The Black Stallion

The Black Stallion is, without question, the greatest horse movie ever made. To say it's one of the greatest child movies of all time, is not an exaggeration. It's pure magic. I was in tears by the end.

Sucker Punch
Sucker Punch(2011)
½

I have to agree with the critics on this one. The visuals were EXCELLENT. I mean, they were probably some of the greatest effects i've ever seen, but there was no time for the audience to bond with the characters. Babydoll hardly speaks at all. I enjoyed the plot though. A motherless girl accidentally kills her sister and gets thrown into a mental institution where she imagines a world inside another world? I don't exactly know how to explain it, but it was all very unique and new compared to the other cheap generic plots out there.

Paul
Paul(2011)

If you're into jokes about anal probes, gays, and alien junk. Then it's funny. This isn't half as great as Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz.

Rango
Rango(2011)

I really enjoyed this. Though, it should be pretty clear to everyone else who has watched this...It's definitely not a kids movie. In one of the first scenes, Rango gets thrown onto the windshield of a car holding two men in Hawaiian shirts who are obviously trippin, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas anybody? But that's why this movies so unique. It's a classic but don't take your kids. They just won't get it.

Shutter Island
½

Anyone else think the background music was totally freaky?

The Kids Are All Right
½

A perfectly pure look at the modern american family without the hollywood cliches.

The Green Hornet
½

Britt Reid inherites his father's mechanic, the super human fighter, Kato. Britt and Kato start killing off the criminals in the area. But by doing so, they catch the attention of the deadly killer, Chudnofsky (Bloodnofsky). Britt's pretty much a cocky brat the whole time, and Kato is the only one with any skill. If you can be easily entertained with intense fight scenes, and a flimsy plot, this is the movie for you. There are a few suprises. Like James Franco :)

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy(2010)
½

The visuals were completely amazing. I didn't get around to seeing the first one, but I could still follow the plot really well. The character development- eh. There's not much else to say. My favorite thing? The awesome sountrack. Kudos to Daft Punk!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1
½

Incredible! Of course I wish there was a bit more of The Weasley's and the wedding. I believe the whole dancing scene between Harry and Hermioni was unnecessary and sort of off. This movie is filled with awesome actors too. Even though many of them don't get the screen time they deserve, this movie is really, really, great!

Due Date
Due Date(2010)

Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis make a good pair, but sometimes pretty actors and violent situations just aren't enough. It's definitely no Hangover. Anyone who enjoys a few spontaneous laughs and a dog that jerks off in the backseat, this is for you.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
½

Crazy stuff! This psychological thriller is more terrifying than most modern horrors. Hearing Jane sing about her daddy might seem hilarious, but it's actually quite scary.

Poltergeist
Poltergeist(1982)

Perfectly creepy, I still have trouble sleeping at night after I watch this....

Citizen Kane
Citizen Kane(1941)

I just watched this for the first time on TCM. It was a masterpiece. One of the greatest films to ever come out of Hollywood. It focuses on Charles Foster Kane, a character that you never fully understand. He is completely unique, a man who's life is devoted to making people love him as much as he loves himself. I can't believe I waited this long to watch this movie. Trust me, once you watch this you're never going to forget about it.

Jennifer's Body

Shallow and just plain weird.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Scott Pilgrim? Totally bitchin. Michael Cera plays the super nerd who falls in love with Ramona Flowers. Unfortunately her last boyfriend, Jason Schwartzman, sets up the league of evil Ex's. Scott also has to deal with the highschooler he's dating. The fight scenes were really fabulous. I loved the way this film was put together. It was completely unique. I've never watched a movie quite like this one. It gets two thumbs up from me.

Inception
Inception(2010)

Holy Crap. I walked out of the theatre with my mind completely blown away. My heart was pounding almost the entire way through. Of course, the beginning was hard to get, but after a few minutes everything came together perfectly. I thought it would be impossible for Christopher Nolan to top The Dark Knight, but he did. The cast was as excellent as the plot. And there's no better way to end a film then with a question, does Cobb's totem fall? or will it keep spinning?

It Happened One Night

There's not much to say about this movie except that it was absolutely wonderful. A true classic with great actors and marvelous dialog. I can't think of one flaw. The ending was totally unexpected, the rich father getting his daughter a getaway car to be with the witty, charming man she loves. Great stuff!

Harold and Maude
½

This film is definitely not for everybody. Harold and Maude is morbid and dark in a beautiful, quirky way. It's completely original. If this movie ever gets remade it's going to be terrible, because no other actor could replace Bud Cort as Harold. I am thankful that there weren't any really intimate scenes shown between the young boy and the 79 year old women. I think my favorite part is when Harold's laying beside Maude the next morning and he's staring at her and blowing bubbles.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
½

This could possibly be less terrible than the previous two twlights. But it's still kind of awful.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3(2010)

Toy Story 3 touches the heart like no movie ever has. It's incredible. It may be the greatest disney movie yet. Was anyone else freaked out by the baby doll with the lazy eye? I was.

Legion
Legion(2010)

This was a mess! Seriously, I couldn't hold back my laughs when that possessed old women got hit in the face with a frying pan. Dennis Quaid, a rich couple with the misunderstood daughter, a skanky knocked up waitress that a rebel angel is trying to protect. What a joke. The ending was definitely the worst part. I'm sorry if I spoil it for you, but it's just like every other cliche horror movie. Everyone dies except the two main characters. Boringgg.

Paper Heart
Paper Heart(2009)

The only words to describe Paper Heart are cute and quirky, what else could you expect from a movie starring Michael Cera? The true love stories were actually refreshing, but the relationship between Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera was so obviously scripted that it tainted the rest of the film.

Robin Hood

I loved how this movie showed how the legend of Robin Hood began. It's what made this movie so original. But the beginning was so bloody confusing that I almost gave up after 20 minutes into it. Eventually everything falls into place nicely. Cate Blanchett plays the love interest which was nice, she is a great actress. She also plays the stupid women who thinks she can fight, and Robin Hood almost sacrifices himself to save her. Overall, it was an 'ehh' movie. Did anyone else notice how every time someone gave a heroic speech, they spit everywhere? weird.

Up in the Air

Holy Crap. This movie blew me away. George Clooney was so great, the plot was great, the humor was great. My favourite thing about this film is how it was so dark and light at the same moment. When I watched George Clooney's character run off to find his lover, I thought "fuck this, another movie full of cliches" But instead of finding his true love and living happily ever after, he finds out she is married, and using him as an escape from her actual life. It was truly a magnificent film. If you haven't watched it yet, drop what you're doing and go buy it.

Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2(2010)

Almost as mind-blowing as the first. I have to admit, I was worried the movie would take a turn for the worst when Tony Stark was on the brink of death because the same device keeping him alive was also killing him. Luckily, the ending was happy. And, a happy ending is always irresistible. Robert Downey Jr. was made to play this part. His performance was incredible.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Since when is Freddy a creepy pedophile? They took this great horror icon and turned him into a total pervert. I felt weird laughing at freddy's punch lines because pedophiles aren't suppose to be funny. Like when Nancy says "Fuck You" and Freddy says " Oh Sounds Fun" Jackie Earl Haleys acting was amazing, but overall, this was a truly terrible remake.

Kick-Ass
Kick-Ass(2010)
½

Just enough gore to be rated R and still had a pretty great story line. Who would have thought of blowing someone up in a giant microwave? It wasn't as shallow as some other superhero flicks. I didn't think this movie would have potential to be great, but it proved that not all movies have to show a line between bad guy and good guys. Red Mist had enough depth to make you question what side he was on.

The Crazies
The Crazies(2010)

I loved this. it was suspenseful and jumpy. There weren't any awkward sex scenes either. I couldn't ask for anymore from a horror film.

Sherlock Holmes

Robert Downey Jr brought Sherlock Holmes to life. I couldn't think of a better actor for this part. It did drag a little bit in the middle, but the twist at the end made up for it.

How to Train Your Dragon
½

Exactly what a 3D film should look like. Adorable. It had me wishing I had a pet dragon named Toothless.

Alice in Wonderland

The Jabberwocky fight might send Lewis Carroll off a bridge, but Johnny Depp was brilliant and It's visually appealing.
