1. Season of the Witch (2011)
1/11



Well, it was Nicholas Cage, so naturally, I expected worse. It was entertaining for what it was.

2. Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)
21/10



I was waiting for a little girl to jump off of a second floor balcony, like in the previews. Didn't happen. I was waiting for the same little girl to knock on a door that knocked back. Didn't happen. I was waiting for the mom to be yanked back into the room after trying to get out of the house. Didn't happen. I was waiting for the little girl to pour water on a ghost that wasn't really there. Didn't happen. What ever happened to previews actually being previews?

The result of this was a general feeling of having been gipped when the credits began to role. But let's face it...that wasn't the only reson I felt screwed out of money on this one. Witches? Really? Really?! I could have come up with a better back story than that one. A large cockroach walking across the keys of the keyboard probably could have come up with a more original back story than that one. I pity those who can call this one the scariest film of the year.

OK, everyone has one of those freezing cold days where you just need to watch a friendly, feel good movie with a pretty boy in it. This was one of those days. And it served it's purpose. It made me smile!

3/10



OK, so this was always going to be a guilty pleasure. I pretty much expected Varsity Blues with cowboy hats, but when Ashton Kutcher showed up trying to play someone other than a flaming moron, I laughed my way through the rest of it. There are quite a few plotless gun battles where people who received no character development whatsoever end up dead...with me on the other side of the screen laughing at Ashton Kutcher shooting them. I wonder if that makes me a bad person.

It wasn't bad. It didn't stick out as one of the better Disney movies though...more of an attempt by Disney to be politically correct. Ho hum.

Um...I may have had a seizure watching this one. I really, honestly thought that the whole movie is about Jeff Bridges battling his younger self...and the younger self barely looks computer animated. I was impressed by this. Unfortunately, not by the movie. Petrocles was pretty in all that tight leather again though. If only they wore Greek skirts in the Grid as well.

7. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the ... (2010)
30/9



Surprisingly, this one took me days to finish one chunk at a time. I was bored several times during it. Not a large plot and WAY too much religious undertone. Too bad for CS Lewis too. He had the possibility of creating one of the best worlds ever, but everyone knows that even the best worlds are destroyed by religion!

16/9



I found it incredibly entertaining to watch Gwyneth Paltrow have her face peeled forward for an autopsy. All in all a good show, but don't expect an entire world to die, riot and learn to live without 98 percent of it's population. This is more just a what would happen if... type scenario.

4/9



Well now. This one was so terrifyingly rushed, cliched and rife with terrible acting that it could have only appeared as a Lifetime original at one point. Religions disgust me and even I was laughing at how bad they tried to make the Mormons look in this one!

2/9



I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to feel about this one. If I were a male or a lesbian, I suppose the answer would be turned on, but as I am neither, I guess I'm just confused. Was it a story about a girl in an insane asylum? An orphan in a whore house? A sexy dragon/nazi/robot fighting school girl? Maybe if they put more slow motion shots of bullets falling out of guns, I would be able to understand.

11. Harlan County U.S.A. (1976)
30/8



Wow, three in a row that I enjoyed. This one was a walk through a culture that seemed almost foreign to me, even though it takes place in my own country. I caught myself trying to recognize different cultural nuances and actually having to go back a bit to figure out what these people were saying. I started thinking about how terrible the big bad coal monopolies were, and ended thinking that the miners would never be satisfied. All in all, a pretty great doc.

Wow. I'm not sure if I'm ashamed to admit this one or not, but I liked it. It was cute, and probably the only romantic comedy that ended up without boy gets girl that I have ever enjoyed. I must be softening in my old age!

12/8



This one was amusing. I hated the A-team TV show so I had low expectations for it. Still, I laughed at most of the jokes and was amused. If I could pick out my biggest complaint, there were so many fast action scenes that I found myself tuning out during them and only paying attention again when Murdock or Face made a joke out of the whole affair.

16. Red Riding Hood (2011)
12/8



As much as I would like to admit that I hated this one, I think my hatred of calssic remakes got the better of me here. I expected an abomination, and instead, I got something that was somewhere between a halfway acceptable supernatural murder mystery, and a teen flick that was at least a bit better than Twilight. The boy was pretty anyway.

17. To Kill a King (2003)
6/8



I'm going to be honest. I spent a greater part of this movie on Wikipedia looking up the royal line that led up to Bonnie Prince Charlie and Culloden, and trying to figure out if the civil war really had anything to do with that...which probably means that the film did not hold my attention as much as it should have.

18. Stone (2010)
25/7



Prevailing health problems have kept me doing pretty much nothing but watching movies for about a week. That would be the only reason that I watched this one at all. The call of Edward Norton and Robert DeNiro was too much for me, but I really wasn't as impressed as I should have been with this one. I took away only two observations from it. 1.) Edward Norton ends up in prison in a lot of his movies, and 2.) Milla Jovavich has got some wierd, rather repelling bare breasts.

19. Restrepo (2010)
24/7



This was a lesson for me in desensatization. It should have been a sad, shocking documentary, as the entire show is named after one dead soldier, and you watch a group of soldiers deal with the loss of another one of their rank during the film. Unfortunately, I have just come off of a WWII bender in which 180.000.000 people died in a series of documentaries before my eyes, so all I could think while watching this was, "Nope...we would never be tough enough to beat our grandparents. Thanks, Hard Core History."

Wow. I really liked this movie. I saw Elephant as a boring exploitation of a tragedy, but this one was quite tastesful and well done. Fitting, since it was written and directed by one of the survivors.

21. A Matador's Mistress (2008)
23/7



The curses I could give this one. I'll refrain from a six page diatribe of the movie's flaws and just say that no American, no matter how close a resemblance his nose was to the real bullfighter, should ever bother trying to play a matador. In many cases, it wasn't him, but a screenplay that sadly and totally eliminated all of the bull fighting scenes just to avoid PETA and their sad protests. News: the movie is about a TORERO! Remake this one in Spain where the moronic whining of the PETA people are an ocean away and it can be made properly.

22/7



I'm in love with WWII films, books, essays, comics...you name it, I'll eat it up. The courage that it took to charge onto a beach where you are already seeing the dead pile up, and then keep going fascinates me. However, when the movie is 3 hours long and half od it is philosophising over something that has nothing really to do with the war, even I will get bored...

I can honestly say that this is the best movie that I've allowed my boyfriend to choose...which really isn't saying much considering he chose Catfish and Zombies of Mass Destruction before this. I did enjoy this one though. It showed the chaos inherent and the impossibility of rehabilitation in a place like that.

Once again, I think I expected a little more, having read the books, and really thinking that these books will end up in canon children's literature in about 50 years. The strong emotional parts were just not there for this one. A rather bland ending...and they kept the terrible epilogue in! Still, it's Harry Potter!

Another opportunity for Christina Aguilera to exploit her singing ability with a few gratuitous shots of a mummy with a man's voice trying to get back into the game on a stage she can no longer dance on without grossing people out. The guy from Twilight was pretty in it though. Can't hate anything that shows that pretty of a butt.

I was properly entertained, I suppose. They chose good actors to portray almost everyone. Beast was laughable, and I found myself wondering why Fastbender bothered struggling so hard pronouncing his American R's when his older self spoke with an English accent in the first place. Overall, though, I liked it. Never read the comics, so I'm not really one to care if it strays from them.

OK, I watched this to mark another one off of my most disturbing list. Instead, I find and hour and 20 minutes of some boring guy looking for another wife followed by about five minutes of unexplained, badly plotted violence. It could be the fact that I don't watch a lot of Japanese cinema. If this is a trend, then it's too deep for me. I was mostly just bored.

I'm afraid this one was tainted by the fact that I couldn't see the girl as anything more than Donna in That 70's Show, and I couldn't see the rapist and murderer as anything more than an angel in Supernatural. This one was ruined by the fact that i watch WAY too much TV now. Oops.

You know, I love Christian Bale, but I just couldn't buy him in this one. Maybe it was him trying to speak Spanish...and failing. Maybe it was the fact that I just couldn't like any of the characters here, but this took me about four day to actually finish. I kept turning it off at the parts that pissed me off. I hated Training Day too. That could have something to do with it.

As far as disney movies go, this one was relatively entertaining in its category. I had trouble understanding exactly how much money they had to pay Monica Belucci to kiss Cage, of course, and I will always have trouble understanding how Nicolas Cage gets ANY of his movie roles, but i enjoyed this for what it was.

Trying not to take this film too literally and see the fact that a vengeful father ruined his daughter's childhood by turning her into a warped vigilanty psychopath, and just see it for a bit of dark comedic entertainment. This film actually surpassed my expectations. I was properly amused. (Yet another role that Nicolas Cage should not have been given though!)

I'm pretty sure that the creator had an idea of a girl hunting dear, almost killing one, saying "I just missed your heart," and killing it. Then he made a series of other scenes around it without actually thinking of how to link those scenes to make a followable movie. Oh yeah, and Soirse Ronan is a prime candidate for a tanning booth.

This was frightening and terrible to imagine actually happened. It was made stronger by the fact that the film was made only 5 years after the genocide in Cambodia was finally brought to a relative end. Still...perhaps it is my habit of watching films that make me thank every supreme being out there that I was born in the time and place I was...but I was not as impressed and as touched by this film as I thought I would be. I would really love to learn more about this time in history, though.

I have to say, the movie version of Angels & Demons didn't do the book justice. The book is incredible, in my opinion. And Freedom Writer's has quickly become one of my favorite movies. It's so inspirational.

Never could get into the Dan Brown books, but I'd have to agree on Freedom Writers!
