Mac and Me (1988)

Jenny - RATING: 2.5/5
This movie is just a wanna-be E.T. with some many similarities... an addition to a human consumption item, destroying things to make other things, an injured or sick boy who needs to be healed by the alien. and a chase to get the alien back to it's family. It was not original at all and none of the characters were that likable.

Bambi (1942)

Jenny - RATING: 3/5
I have not seen this movie since I was young and watching now I realized that truly there is no story to this movie, no plot, no real sense of story except that of the circle of life. I am glad that they made the characters true animals instead of having them more like people; it kept it real. We watched the commentaries with it, which always is fun with Disney because you learn so much of the creation of it as well as touching on other movies at the same time. The Blu-Ray on this is fabulous, the transfer is excellent. If you get a chance, listen to it with commentary.

Elisabeth - RATING: 3.5/5
Watched this with the storyboard and sweatroom commentary from the blu-ray. It really made the difference hearing the running ideas from Walt and the director and animators. The quality in the transfer was really clean and the new 7.1 surround was wow. They really made a great blu-ray edition with this and I can't wait to see the cool features on the next sets.

Almost Famous (2000)

Jenny - RATING: 5/5
This is one of my top 10 favorite movies, probably my top 5. I have reviewed this movie before but again to say that it is probably the movie the hit most home with me as I was "William Miller" in the late 80's and early 90's with the latin american pop music scene. I wanted to be a music writer and I made friends with the artists like he did. It was a part of my life that I hold dear and can totally relate. It is fabulous movie that never gets old.

Elisabeth - RATING: 4/5
I really like this movie. It shows a side of touring that most of us would have never seen. I like that it is sort of brutally honest about the goings on. I have only seen this movie once before and I liked it then. Fast forward to 5-6 years later, and it is still a great movie.

Monsters (2010)

Jenny - RATING: 2/5
Nothing impressed me or moved me in this movie and the whole kiss at the end seemed like they just need a forced closure for the film. It was long and drawn out for no true fear of these "monsters" and once in the US it almost seemed like the E.T.'s we not to be feared cos they didn't try to really hurt the two main characters. They never seemed to be in danger so I felt nothing for them.

Elisabeth - RATING: 2/5
I hadn't seen an alien movie move this slow since Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I don't even have much to say about this movie, other than it could have been so much better.

Never Let Me Go (2010)

Jenny - RATING: 4/5
How would I feel if I knew my life could end at any moment? They could take away a vital organ and I would be done... That is what this movie did; it made me think about loving someone or something especially with a glimmer of hope that you could stop it, and living your short life like that. Every moment is precious even if you are born to donate. This was an all around good movie that evokes thoughts on your own life.

Elisabeth - RATING: 5/5
Such a heart-wrenching movie on all levels. Everything about this movie was just perfect in my opinion. The cinemaphotography, the acting, the direction...everything. I hadn't felt quite so heartbroken for all of the characters in a movie in a very long time. Just the looks they gave spelled so much grief and knowing that it wouldn't last long. That is sad...I think even if you don't get the movie, you can't help feeling something by the end of it.

Network (1976) - AFI Top 100 #64

Jenny -RATING 4/5
Drama, humor and a bit of truth to it all, Network was an awesome two hours of entertainment about the world of television, reality tv and news. Faye Dunaway plays an awesomely strong woman in a man's world of television 70's. Acting was superb, story was great. I can see why this is one of the Top 100 AFI films. Excellent. I saw this when I was younger, way younger, but don't remember lots of it. Can appreciate it more now as an adult.

Elisabeth - RATING: 4/5
Great movie. It is always interesting to see how things were done back in the day of TV Networks. It really gives you an understanding of how it all meshes together, where ideas come from and what it takes to get the ever-elusive top rating. Everything about this movie was spot on and I honestly don't think I would change anything other than the "love" story between the two people...that just wasn't necessary, but it gave us insight into a modern vs old-school way of thinking about things. What was funny, was when they were playing the Life commercial at the end, Jenny and I could quote the entire thing as they played it...and well...the whole movie just made its point.

The Social Network (2010)

Jenny - RATING: 3/5
Hmmm... I am still trying to decide what I think of this movie. It wasn't all bad but to me it was not Best Picture worthy. Jesse Eisenberg did a good job as a asshole but for some reason I think that it might not been much of a stretch but who knows... it seems to come easy for him. I think Brenda Song did a better job at being a pyscho girlfriend... YAAY BRENDA! The movie lacked something but I don't exactly know what; just felt unmoved by it all.

Elisabeth - RATING: 3.5/5
I wanted to love this movie. I didn't hate it, but I am probably the only person in the world that doesn't really like Aaron Sorkin's style of writing...oh well. I thought it was well directed and acted and liked it well enough because of that. But...this is officially my least favorite David Fincher movie.

Eastern Promises (2007)

Jenny - RATING: 3/5
As much as I wanted to like this movie all the way through, I was seriously disappointed on how they ended this movie. I feel left with no closure what so ever. Too many questions are unanswered and I really wanted to see a big show down at the end. Story was excellent but just failed at the end... Almost a 4 star for me...

Elisabeth - RATING: 3/5
If it weren't for the ambiguous ending...I would have given this movie a better rating. I am all for not having closure, but to leave it hanging like it did made no sense at all. Viggo kicked some serious ass in this movie and I do think this movie was really good, just not great.

Bonnie and Clyde (1967) #42 of AFI Top 100

Elisabeth - RATING: 4/5

I have always liked this movie. Even after not seeing this after 15-20 years after the first time I have seen it, I still really like this movie. The acting was excellent and Faye Dunaway was so hot. Movies just aren't made like this anymore, and I kind of miss that sometimes after seeing a movie like this.

Jenny - RATING: 4/5
I agree with Elisabeth on this one, the acting was spot on. There was humor, drama, and history in this movie and these two actors really brought it to life. I do have to say Estelle Parsons still annoyed me outside of Roseanne (TV Show). I don't have anything bad to say about it except for Ms. Parsons. :p

Friday the 13th: Part 6: Jason Lives (1986)

This movie was far more entertaining than the first five. With a big budget, a believable story, and better acting, Jason 6 was quite enjoyable. I was glad that the nudity and sex scenes were cut way down because I don't think you really need it anymore. Yeah, the 70's and early 80's were a little bit more free on that and made Friday The 13th what it was, but the series grew and I think it was wise to stay semi-free of that. Jason seemed almost zombie like in this chapter and it came full circle with him trapped underwater at Camp Crystal Lake again. Much better...

Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985)

RATING: 2.5/5
My most recent worktime movie was part 5 in the series of Friday The 13th's. Slowy I am finishing them up since I had only seen 1 and 4 previously. This time, Tommy (Corey Feldman from chapter 4) is all grown up and is sent to a half-way house in the woods where you can have knives and sex with the co-eds... wow, all the things Jason hates. One by one, Jason, or so they say the sheriff who is avenging his sons death, picks off each and everyone in the woods until the final showdown where Tommy faces Jason to the death so to speak... And since we all know there is a 6th... Tommy becomes Jason. Bad acting all over the place... I wish that this series would actually have a plot more than just new location, new kids, let's kill them.

Santa sangre (1989)

Jenny - RATING: 3/5
I don't know how to feel about this movie. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love; more like I was confused mostly until the end when it all seemed to come into light. I laughed, I cringed and I said "Huh?" a lot. I was really hoping to like it a lot based on the twitter recommendations, but it really didn't happen for me.

Elisabeth - RATING: 3/5
Norman Bates' mother had nothing on this guy's mom. Psycho mom at its best...oh my god was this movie crazy. None of it made any kind of sense until the last 30 minutes, then it all fell into place and you were like oh dayum...that is messed up. So my take...messed up movie and I am very glad we didn't turn it off when it just wasn't making any sense at all.

AFI Top 100 #92 - Goodfellas (1990)

Jenny - RATING: 3/5
While this movie was good, it wasn't my favorite mob movie. Thinking about Pesci and DeNiro, I felt Casino was a lot more enjoyable. My thoughts on this movie are very minimal, its wasn't that good or that bad... and again, like all movies with Joe Pesci, he annoys the hell out of me.

Elisabeth - RATING 3/5
This was a decent movie. Not my favorite Scorsese movie, but good. I am just not a fan of mob movies. I can see why a lot of people love this movie. I personally know 3 people who consider this movie to be one of their favorite movies of all time. Not me...but that doesn't mean it was bad. Just not my thing.

Suspiria (1977)

Jenny - RATING: 3/5

For our first 70's night in March, we started with Suspiria cos so many people on twitter have talked about this movie and it has been in our queue for a while. Not that I didn't like the movie, but the plot really weak... What I loved about the movie was the colors, the way it was shot, the use of the music; all of which made the movie creepy in my opinion. I, personally, loved the fact that Miguel Bose was in the movie and me being a lover of Latin music and having Miguel Bose's music in my iPod, it was cool to see him in a movie like this. Overall, not bad...

Elisabeth - RATING: 4/5
70's night's first pick...awe.some. The colors were outstanding. The cinemaphotography was spectacular. The use of color and angles and everything was perfect. The movie was creepy without giving too much away, which is what good horror movies are all about. I loved this movie. Yeah, the acting was pretty horrible, but everything else made up for it. And the soundtrack...oh my god, the soundtrack. Without the soundtrack this movie would have sucked. I will never own this soundtrack because I will be forever creeped out by the lalalalalalala....yikes.

The Heavenly Kid (1985)

Not bad of a movie... Kid from the 60's dies in a drag race and before he can go to heaven, he has to prove him self capable of loving someone other than himself. A standard story that has been done over and over but was decent characters and my love for the 80's made this movie fairly decent but doesn't win my heart as there was lack of feeling when he gets to go to heaven. Come on, all 80's movies end happily ever after 99% of the time. And the lead character (dead angel) reminds me sooooo much of James Franco.

Crawlspace (1986)

This movie lacked intensity or anything interesting... It gives you a child of the Hitler generation who grew up to be a wacko who likes to spy on young girls in the air ducks of his apartment complex and killed anyone who was having sex with HIS girls and when one girl is on to him and learned too much, he goes postal and kills everyone in his complex. It wasn't gory or anything like a slasher film cos you don't even really see the kills.

Red Sonja (1985)


I honestly thought I was watching an episode of Xena and I will probably get slammed for that. There not much point to all the excess and I honest thought at one point Arnold was gonna take Red Sonja done and show her why she needs a man. There was not really connection to the characters, but there were few so it was easy to follow. Not much to the movie but held my interest enough to warrant a 3.

Friday the 13th Part III (1982)

On the third installment of the Friday The 13th series, Jason was a lot my visible then I remember him being first two. In the non-3D version, you can definitely tell where 3D was supposed to be, but it was barely relevant, but isn't all 3D that way. Of course there is no real plot to the Jason series, but we get to see where Jason gets his mask. It wasn't boring, but it wasn't excellent either.

Thrashin' (1986)


This movie had all the elements of a West Side Story for skaters. Good clean kid falls for the sister of a member of a hoodlum gang of skaters. Fighting breaks out and the love birds are separated and all it comes down to the final skateboarding match to find out who is better of the two... good vs evil... And of course everything turns out right in the end and the rivals shake hands and become friends in the end. Typical movie, but it wasn't bad. I kinda enjoyed it.

AFI Top 100 #34 - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Elisabeth RATING: 4/5

I have probably seen this movie a hundred times over the years. I know all the songs, I know all the words, and yet I can continue to watch it and like it. The blu-ray made everything so clear and the commentary is very enlightening with Walt's own words. A master of what animation could be, Disney was a genius in giving us a new form of feature film with this one, and I can see why it continues to be a classic. That...is a feat in and of itself.

Jenny - RATING: 3/5
For our first AFI Top 100, we watched Snow White, which might have been brilliant in its time but really its not Disney's best. There was a lot of movie that was a break through in animated film making and watching the blu-ray with Walt's commentary makes you realize how much truly went into making this film. For me, I thought the movie itself was very slow moving doesn't hold me or capture me but does have an awesome villain.

Jerry Maguire (1996)

Jenny - RATING: 3/5
Not that I would want to watch this again, but it wasn't all hideous. I definitely do no think Cuba Gooding Jr. should have won the best supporting actor award for this because I didn't see this as that much of a stretch for him as an actor. Tom Cruise still lacked personality, but the story was pretty good which is why it gets bumped to 3 stars... But I probably could have waited another 10 years to see this movie and not have felt like I was missing anything. It's a very over-rated movie.

The AFI Top 100 Movie List Project


The list...the best of what Hollywood has to offer from a long and historical line of movie making for 100+ years.

The plan...to watch every single movie from the list in order from 100-1.

I was contemplating upping some of my classic movie watching when an idea struck me. There are so many movies out there, wouldn't it be easier to go off of some kind of list? Make my life a little bit easier? Then I thought about the AFI Top 100 List. So why not watch everything on the list? Sure, I have seen probably more than half of them, but let's see if they truly stand the test of time as the greatest movies ever made.

This will be a project. We will have to watch approximately 14 movies a month off of the list which is really no big deal since we watch 40-70 movies a month as it is. Jenny said she wants to be involved as well, so this should be really interesting because she will end up having to watch some movies she really doesn't want to watch and me as well.

NOTE: After much research and perusing, I have decided not to do these in order since watching 3+ hour movies during the week is not my idea of fun, and I really want to watch these movies. We will be skipping around based on availability of movies as well. You wouldn't even believe how hard it is to find some of these movies.

The Dead Girl (2006)

Jenny - RATING: 2/5
This really has no purpose in being a movie... there was no point to this movie what so ever. Honestly it never really even connected and you never felt anything for anyone, no purpose, no closure... I love Brittany, but come on... this could have been way better.

Elisabeth RATING 3.5/5
I liked the movie. The little vignettes didn't make any sense as a whole, but they told the story. It would have been better if they snipped back and forth and in between all of them at once instead. The Brittany Murphy section was by far the best and unfortunately, it was the beginning of the end for her...but damn she was good.

Abandoned (2010)

Jenny - RATING: 3.5/5
The last movie of Brittany Murphy was pretty darn good. I was glad that she actually left on a high note even though it was not highly publicized. The movie kept me guessing what was going on and was feeling a lot like she was... very confused. But it turned out good... Nice job and RIP Brittany Murphy.

Elisabeth RATING: 3/5
No one plays crazy like Brittany Murphy. So much talent wasted and she was the only highlight of this movie, but you could tell she just wasn't the same as she was anymore. Movie was okay...but nothing amazing.

Case 39 (2009)

Jenny - RATING: 4/5

Sometimes a movie comes along that has everything a good thriller needs... A creepy kid, supernatural evil, a frightened blonde and non-believing cop... and the rest falls into place. This movie had it all for me. At first you think the parents are on crack but then the movie would have been over, this is when it all turns bad, but good... and the whole time you are saying WTF and how are they gonna stop this devil child. Thought it was pretty darn good film making in my book.

Elisabeth RATING: 3/5
I thought this movie was just okay. Predictable, but had enough of a story to make it interesting. This kid was way creepier than the kid in Orphan, which was cool. I hope she does well in the future, because I would like to see more of her. She was the highlight of the movie for me.

Gattaca (1997)

Jenny - RATING: 4/5
Honestly, I thought that this would be a movie that would be just okay. I remember it coming out when I worked at Blockbuster Video, but since I was never and Uma Thurman fan I always skipped it. But Elisabeth said it was really good and she bought it on blu-ray, so I might as well give it a shot and I was really impressed with it. Impressive story, good characters, and interesting look into our future.

Elisabeth - RATING: 4/5
This has to be one my more favorite sci-fi/futuristic movies, and probably the one I find most realistic. I love the way it was filmed, the cinemaphotography is one I truly enjoy. Even after seeing this a few times, it still holds up well, and I will definitely look forward to another watch later to see how well it holds up.

Donnie Darko (2001)

Jenny - RATING: 4/5

This is a movie for me that gets better with time. The first time I watched it, I was like WHAT? HUH? THIS IS STUPID? But as time goes on I understand and catch things that I never noticed before, like Ashley Tisdale. LOL. We watched this with my nephew and his wife who were Donnie Darko virgins and they really liked it but it had their brains swirling afterward. They mentioned it was almost like Inception with things not being what they appeared to be. Ok, I get that. Over all, this is an awesome movie that needs more watches cos I am sure there was more I missed.

Elisabeth: 4/5
I have always loved this movie from the first time I saw it. And each and every time I see it, I see something different, which is awesome. This is one of the very first movies which made me see things in a different way as well. I love the surrealistic aspect of it and even though I HATE movies about time travel, this one works for me because it wasn't really a movie about time travel...or was it? That is what I love about this movie. Depending on who you talk to...they got something completely different out of it.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Jenny - RATING: 3.5/5
Iron Man 2 had all the things I liked in a super hero movie... action, explosions, cute superhero, and good villain. Add a semi-hot co-super hero (Scarlett Johansson), and I got a movie that entertained me for about two hours. I found the ratio of downtime/uptime was just right, the special effects were cool, and the villain arm whips were just awesome. I'd watch this again.

Elisabeth - RATING: 3/5
It was an okay movie. Sometimes, all you need is something to entertain you, and this most certainly did. It would have been way more helpful to know more about the people from SHIELD though...not just add them in for the heck of it. It could have been better, but it could have been a heck of a lot worse.

The Third Man (1949)

We decided that we are gonna begin tandem blogging... each one of us reviewing the movie in our own words because we both have very very different opinions on movies, especially one like this. So, there will now be two reviews for movies we both watch.

Jenny: RATING: 2/5
This was our "mystery" movie for the week, as we let someone from Twitter pick a movie that is on instant. It is our way of watching movies we would not normally choose for ourselves. I totally would not have picked this for my normal viewing, just because I usually do not give into classic black & whites. I am usually a 70's and after kinda girl. I had no clue of what Film Noir was and had to ask Elisabeth... also had to ask what was going on in the movie cos I was lost throughout most of it... and at the end, I still never understood why the main character faked his death. Things are not as well laid out here and the lack of subtitles made it even more difficult to follow, even though Elisabeth said that was how it should be cos they wanted us to be just as confused as Holly Martins was as he was questioning people about the death of his friend. Not that I would not give more Film Noir a chance, I think it might be slow to get to... or have to wait until the next MYSTERY movie. LOL.

Elisabeth: RATING 4/5

I personally liked this one a lot. I used to watch a lot of noir and went to symposiums in college to learn more. I LOVED the camera angles the most in this one. The use of shadows and camera angles totally made it for me. I admit, it was kind of slow for a bit there, but once it picked up, it really picked up. I am going to try to get Jenny more involved in noir, but I think it will have to be one that is purely American so we don't have a language barrier. Maybe an old Hitchcock?

Wicked Little Things (2006)

RATING: 3.5/5

This movie was entertaining and nice and short. They didn't get into a whole lot of filler with bloody scenes, but kept the whole thing movie pretty quickly. I am glad they decided not to make this campy, because it could have been. In my mind the whole time I was watching it, was that it would have been even creepier if the kids looked they were from The Village of the Damned...thank god they didn't do that, but it would have been so awesome. Overall pretty decent horror movie.

Gung Ho (1986)

Thinking this might have been boring, I went into it with low expectations and came out with a surprise liking of this movie. Michael Keaton's annoyance factor was low, which was nice. The story was good and truly this was a "proud to be an American" movie. It had a good hearted ending, which so many 80's movie did... It held up well to the times.

RoboCop 3 (1993)

Wrapping up my RoboCop blu-ray trilogy, the third film was not much better than the second. Very weak story line, lack of interesting characters and again nothing to tell us how we got from two to three but to make it worse they decided to put a jet pack on him... Enter SUPER Robocop. I was waiting for the cap to appear sometime during flight. This series had the potential to be awesome, but fell flat on film two and never picked up. Overall, my series rating will be a 3 just because the first was sooooo awesome.

RoboCop 2 (1990)

RATING: 2.5/5
Though the movie had lots of special effects, gunfights, and robot vs robot action, that was its core. A weak story made me wondering what was truly the mission RoboCop. There was no story about how Murphy cleaned up, how his girl partner is back to normal or anything else. There were many questions unanswered.

RoboCop (1987)

As a kid I liked RoboCop and now watching for the first time since it was released many moons ago, I find that I still like it. It has suspense, action, lots of gunfire and a decent story. Some of the CGI did not hold up so well... some of the robots seems cartoonish. The transfer to Blu-ray was great though some shots were grainy but what do you expect. Time to move on to the next in the series, which I don't remember seeing.

Disaster on the Coastliner (1979)


This was a fun 70's disaster movie where no one dies. It was made for tv, so I guess it was inevitable that no one was going to die, but it would have been nice to see. We had fun with it, and it was a joy to watch. Nothing serious, but decent overall.

Chinatown (1974)

RATING: 3.5/5
A mystery who done it movie where Jack Nicholson is not a pyscho... A bit drawn out but well directed film. Although it lost me in places, it all fell together in the end. You would think that this would have more to do with Chinatown than it did, can't be sure why they named it this. Elisabeth enjoyed it a little more than I did.

Ode to Billy Joe (1976)


Neither one of us had seen this since we were kids, and we guessed that it had to be around the time it was released. I always knew who was in it, but never really remembered the movie. Still a good movie considering it was made in the 70's...not a lot of the movies from that decade held up that well. The story was well done, and I kind of miss songs that actually told a story. This movie deserves a watch at least once in a lifetime.

Daddy Long Legs (1955)

Since doing the movie tally (Tallyteers), I have been more experimental in my movie watching that I am just about willing to watch anything. Elisabeth thought it would be nice to watch a few musicals for the month of March, but we are starting now with our first... One we both had not seen. While I thought that story and plot were fine and kept my attention, the musical and dance number I found to be irrelevant to the movie, though Elisabeth to be an actual part of the telling of the story. I don't see why Fred Astaire needed to dance in his office all by himself other than he's Fred Astaire and that's what he does. All in all, I found the movie to be decent but we could have lived without so much song and dance.

Alice in Wonderland (1951)

RATING: (E 4/5) (J 3/5)
This was our first time watching it on blu-ray, and the conversion was just so amazing. The clarity and colors just popped. Jenny thought this was boring in places, where I was completely fascinated the whole time. What I find interesting is that after watching Walt and El Grupo, you realize just how much Walt fell in love with the direction Mary Blair's art went. It is so apparent in all of the cartoons from the 50's where she had a hand in the art direction. This is and always has been a classic to me and one of my top 5 Disney animated features of all time.

Cyrus (2010)

RATING: 2.5/5
Took til the end to see the point of this movie, we stuck it out. Thought this was going to be a lot more funny than the drama that it was, though it wasn't completely hideous.

Solstice (2007)

Whenever Shawn Ashmore is in a movie things are bound to go wrong and people seem to die. This was no exception. This movie was enjoyable and full of some good looking people. It had suspense, intrigue and Amanda Seyfried... The things we like.

Alien: Resurrection (1997)


A great movie. I love the twist this one took and didn't expect it at all. I try not to know what the movie is about before I see it. I just want a general gist of what it is about, but I don't want to know much more than that. It keeps it much more interesting. Everyone was so great in this one.

Alien 3 (1992)

The movie that made me fall in love with David Fincher. The way that man can frame a shot...wow. This was very good for his first movie, which most people don't know. While this is not my favorite of the series, I still like the movie as a whole within the series and I grow to appreciate it more and more each time I see it.

Aliens (1986)


This was back when James Cameron was still good and working on multiple projects at once, which made him better. To this day, I still quote lines from this movie on a somewhat daily basis...does that mean it was good? To me, yes. This was my first time watching the special edition cut. The extra footage actually made sense. I really like that they release this stuff after the fact. It gives it more replay value. It is interesting listening to the commentary about the different methods they used to cut costs, which was pretty cool.
And remember...they mostly come out at night...mostly.

Alien (1979)

RATING: 4.5/5

After seeing this movie a hundred times or more, I still love it. Ridley is a genius in building up the tension and drama without anything going on. I decided to watch the director and cast commentary this time around. I learned a lot more that I didn't realize. So much of the movie was done on the fly that day of the shoot, which was so amazing to learn. The movie still holds up well and is so well done, you don't even realize it was made in 1979. Most sci-fi/horror movies definitely don't hold up this well. I still hold this to be one of my top 10 favorite movies of all time, and I think I fall in love with it a little bit more every time I watch it.

TerrorVision (1986)

Such a bad bad bad... comical horror film that I am sure was not taking itself seriously. The storyline was blah, the special effects were nothing more than slime, the acting was horrible. It had to be a farce of some kind. Maybe the only interesting aspect of the movie was the Elvira wanna-be MEDUSA.

All About Eve (1950)

For my Pre-1970's requirement for today's movie watching, All About Eve was recommended by two different people on Twitter, so I gave this a go since I am really beginning to appreciate Bette Davis as an actress. The movie was entertaining and I could appreciate where the movie started as I was teenage fan myself to many of celebrities and became their friends, although I never took it to the extreme of wanting their life, but I could see how Eve felt and I loved how the movie ended with a big giant circle. This was a fine film and I can see why it is a favorite of those who recommended it to me.

Cobra (1986)

RATING: 2.5/5
While it wasn't the most boring movie I have seen of Sly, this definitely was one of the less explosive I have seen of his. I have always been so used to HIGH action, HIGH explosion Sly movies, this just seemed like a let down. Even though you shouldn't go into a movie with expectations, I did and felt cheated.

The Roommate (2011)

This was okay. I liked it better than Single White Female, of which this movie was almost exactly like, oddly enough. I liked the college setting, and Billy Zane was awesome.
But...my one biggest pet peeve...aside from which they should have a new rating for this kind of movie. We all know about the animal cruelty thing, but seriously...some kids are just not ready for the subject matter in this movie. I heard lots of ewws, and other not-so-fantastic commentary throughout the movie. Maybe they should have a 15 and over movie rating now, and enforce it like they do rated R. But that is just my opinion.

The Eagle (2011)

The one thing I have to say about this movie is...Channing Tatum cannot act. This was not a great plot-driven movie to begin with, and Scotland has so much better scenery than they showed in the film, which is really sad. I kept thinking just how much like The 13th Warrior this was like...and not in a good way.
While I was in this theater, I was reminded of how much I sometimes HATE going to new release movies on opening weekend. People had kids, loud eaters, talkers, texters and idiots who didn't turn off their phone. It detracted from the "experience".
