United 93
United 93(2006)

Poetic, beautiful, gut wrenching, honest, and relentless are just a few words to describe United 93. Paul Greengrass's direction is smart and thrilling, the casting is pure genius. The way the film makes you forget what happens so you can suffer all over again is something most films can never do.

A greatly told story filled with the best ensemble of the year. Lewis and Jones are superb as they transform into their characters.

The Hangover Part III
½

Very Very GOOD!! It is nice to see they ditched the premise of the first to for a weird, wacky, and dark twister ride with lots of laughs. If there is one things wrong with this film it is that there is too much chow. Ken Jeong's character is good in small doses but too much can make a film lack laughs.
