I liked this movie a lot. I had heard a lot of good things, so expectations were high, and they were met. I would definitely re-watch this, but it's not exactly my style to warrant a top 10.

Watchmen (2009)
This movie was fantastic. I read the comic book before hand so I could fully appreciate the story, under recommendation from Zach, and loved it. The movie did a fantastic job turning the complicated plot into a watchable, exciting, and deep movie. It had some differentiations from the comic book, but small deviations were expected, and it hardly ruined the experience. This movie is a great watch for anyone, and instantly was one of my favorites.

This was a really good movie. I used to love the show 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire', and this movie portrayed the show really well. It also did a great job combining the kid's past with his current situation, and even has a great background story between him and the girl. This is a great feel good movie that's packed with adventure, and is definitely worth a re-watch.

Taken (2008)
This movie was entertaining and had a lot of good action. At first, I wasn't impressed how the girl wasn't very likable (she had a really goofy run). Now, though, I think it adds to the fathers sacrifice. The movie had some really cool scenes of fatherly passion and rage, and is definitely worth a re-watch.

Hot Fuzz (2007)
This movie has really unique cinematography. The camera work is very odd, but extremely fitting for the wacky townspeople and plot. I liked a lot of the dialog and just overall how this movie was put together. The plot was also pretty well done, and had some great action at the climax. Not an absolute favorite, but I liked it a lot.

Star Trek (2009)
I was surprised by how entertaining this movie was. I didn't know much of anything about Star Trek, the plot or the characters. Even so, the movie never made me feel like I had to be a Trekkie to understand, and had tons of action and suspense. Worth a re-watch.

Disturbia (2007)
A pretty good entertainer. Shia Leboeuf did a great job, and the plot was good for the most part. I wasn't a huge fan of the last half hour or so, but it was overall pretty good and well done.

Ehh.... I'm not a huge fan of this series in the first place, but was expecting a little more from this movie. The first one had a lot of puzzles and riddles that were interesting, but this movie had only one main theme - 'find the churches'. I don't mind any of the Catholic bashing people say this movie has, I just didn't think it was as entertaining as it could have been.

Surprisingly, I had never seen this zombie classic. Overall, I think it was pretty good for the genre. I don't like it's age, I just like the style of today's movies and cinematography better. There were also some parts of the plot I really didn't like (the battle against the bikers). It did have a lot of good parts thought, I love the mall as a zombie hideout and the characters they used. While I'm glad I watched the classic, I've seen better.

The Machinist (2004)
This movie was weird! It had an interesting plot, but it was just too wacky for me. Christian Bale looks like death, a HUGE change from his later Batman, and its just too much to take. The movie tried hard to be unpredictable and have a crazy ending, but the craziness of the whole movie made the ending far from surprising. Nice try, but just not for me.

Déjà vu (2006)
Much more interesting of a movie than I anticipated from the previews. The movie did a great job making the impossible technology believable, and Denzel Washington is amazing, as always. I also really liked the ending. When time travel is involved, its always hard to tie up the loose ends, but this movie did it very well. Even so, its one of those movies where now that I know the plot, it won't be as good any time later. Maybe worth a re-watch, if nothing better available.

The Hangover (2009)
Hilarious. The previews made this movie seem great, and it only got better. I really liked the acting and characters, the the humor was spot on. I can't say enough good things, this is definitely one of my favorite comedies and is absolutely worth a re-watch.

Donnie Darko (2001)
Not knowing anything about this movie going into it, I was really impressed. The plot has so much in it I almost wanted to re-watch it right away. There are so many intricate details and fascinating discussions that it's hard to catch it all. In addition, reading 'the book' (it's about a page long) afterwards made it much better. Some people watch this movie and say its too complicated, but its right up my alley. Instantly one of my favorites of all time.

A pretty entertaining movie. I'm always a fan of techno-geeks in movies, and Bruce does a good job, as usual in this series. Still, the plot is obviously a little unbelieveable, and I really don't like ridiculous scenes like the one with the fighter plane. It's just too unbelieveable to be entertaining. Still, a pretty nice piece, I'd re-watch it, but it's not my favorite style.

Pretty good. Not the greatest thing to hit the cinema, but I like the characters and the plot. Not a huge fan of the Quintin Tarentino torture scene, but I guess it was required for the movie. I didn't like the killing triangle at the end of the movie either, and I would have love to have seen more of the robbery. This movie could have been awesome, but fell a bit short.

Up (2009)
I nice movie for when you are in those type of moods, but it wasn't very thrilling or exciting. Other Pixar movies capture the essence of a kid much better, this movie is kinda geared toward older crowds I think. Interestingly enough, it is also one of the few (maybe only) Pixar film where the villain dies. Not great, I would call it 'nice'.

This movie was too weird for me to like it. I enjoyed the concept of erasing people from your past, but the movie just had a lot of plot that I didn't like. The people going crazy and smoking and drinking while erasing his memory, the ENDLESS trails of him trying to save his girlfriend while his memory is being erased. I did like the twist with the secretary, and the attempts by the worker to court Clementine, but the main characters and the drama was just too crazy to be entertaining and enjoyable.

This movie was WEIRD, but in a good way. It was cool to watch the parallel stories of the kid and his mom, and then the similarities between the girl and the guy friend. A very well told, very artistic story with a good moral and a lot to think about, this movie was well worth the time.
6/20.

The Game (1997)
One of my all time favorites, a great action thriller with a twisting and turning plot that is easy to follow but hard to predict. I wish I could play the 'Game'.
7/2.

Holes (2003)
Obviously not one of my all time favorites, but it is a well written movie with a great plot and does a good job replicating the movie. It is a great kid/adult movie for those kids too old for Pixars.
7/6.

A good plot with good acting and production. I couldn't believe that was Jane Fonda. I can see how this can be considered a classic, and after reading about it and 3 mile island, I am glad I watched it. I could definitely watch it again, as it had great suspense.

Cute. It was funny and had an interesting plot to it. I would definitely watch this again. Its a movie that I think a lot of different people would enjoy, so easily watchable in groups.

A feel good story. Nice to watch once, maybe twice, but definitely couldn't watch it over and over again. Still, it was entertaining and action packed and pulled you into the story.

Johnny Depp was amazing, but the cinematography was horrible. The plot didn't have as much action as I thought, and even the action wasn't that great. It just wasn't what I expected.

Pretty entertaining and well put together, with lots of good actors and wizardry fun. Hopefully now I will go back and watch the others that I have missed.

Apollo 13 (1995)
Awesome movie, a real American Classic. Even the bonus features are really well done, and it was really cool to see how close the movie mimicked the real life situation and how they did the space scenes. I'm always willing to watch Apollo 13.
