Crazy Heart
Crazy Heart (2009)
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Thanks to an emotional and stunning performance turned in by the entire cast, especially Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart's familiar story of a down-on-his-luck musician is one of the better movies of 2009.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Colin Farrell also star in the movie along-side Bridges and could not measure up to Bridges' performance, making them seem extremely inferior.

Every shot is the movie is done with great care, and the music is all heartfelt and emotional. One thing I noticed is that as the movie went on, the shots of the movie seemed brighter and Bridges delved deeper into the role of Bad Blake.

Fireproof (2008)
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This movie basically tells us that without the Bible in our lives, we will treat our wives and everyone else like shit. We don't need Jesus in order to treat people right. Apparently, Kirk Cameron doesn't know that.

This is a flat movie with bad acting. It didn't speak to me because I felt that the man Kirk Cameron tried to portray was just a complete douchebag. Any man who treats his wife like that doesn't need God, he needs a straitjacket.

A Town Called Panic (Panique au village)
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A really unique adventure with horrible animation..horrible animation which actually makes the movie even better.

This movie takes you to the frozen tundra, the center of the earth, and the greatest depths of the seas. This isn't meant to be a children's movie and it doesn't really seem like it. There are some really funny parts in it, but the real moral of this story is that no matter what, you can rebuild and make things better than they ever were. Indian and Cowboy are hysterical throughout the whole movie. This movie is a very rare treat.

My only problem with it is that the story is TOO simple. I love psychological movies most of all, but I still didn't expect it to be very simple.

This movie is must-see feast for your eyes.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's not surprising that this movie won the award for Best Animated Film when it was nominated. And if you watch it, you'll understand why.

This slight twist on the classic tale of the were-wolf is one of the funniest movies that I've ever watched. I would tie it with The Hangover.

The voice acting in this is superb and spot-on. The script is gut-bustlingly hilarious. The animation is clean and crisp and you will probably not go thirty seconds without a burst of laughter. This is one of the movies I recommend to everyone I know because it's a shear masterpiece in the genres of animation, comedy, and children.

But fear not older folks. Most of the jokes in this one will go over children's heads. And even the ones that don't will also be funny for you.

Hoodwinked (2005)
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I loved this movie when it first came out. If I were, to rate it then I would have given it a perfect score, but since I now know what a good movie is compared to a bad movie, this one has flaws. Not enough to not recommend it though.

It cleverly parodies TV crime shows perfectly. And it's pretty freakin funny. The brightest spot in this movie is the little squirrel named Twitchy. Any scene in the movie that he's in is hilarious.

The story has dulled down for me since I last saw the movie due to the fact that I've been watching amazing movies lately and can discern better. I still recommend it if you need to get some laughs.
