Watched in theaters, don't know why. I liked it but it wasn't the best of the trilogy.

Unknown (2011)
Watched in theaters. I had high expectations having seen Taken, and didn't disappoint me at all! I love it. I think I really like to watch Neeson playing the tough guy!

Green Zone (2010)
It didn't blow my mind, but it wasn't so bad either. Is entertaining... I would say.

RED (2010)
I thought why I hadn't seen it before? Willis, Freeman and Malkovich in an action movie? Can not go wrong, is it? Actually, I liked it a lot.

People who added this item 461 Average listal rating (273 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.4
Witherspoon, Rudd, Wilson, and Mr. Nicholson, I thought it would be a good combination. It's not a bad movie, but nothing stands out from other romantic comedies.

Toy Story 3 (2010)
Really liked it. I cried at the end, very emotional. And the part when they almost die in the garbage disposal it was pretty scary, that's not good for kids!! ;)

Gaby's rating:
People who added this item 2764 Average listal rating (1859 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8
I watched because all the promotion it had, then won the Oscar, I like Colin Firth, and I heard a lot of good critics of his job. And it was just... brilliant!

Twilight (2008)
I watched because someone lend me the DVD. I was reluctant to watch it, and I had a point! No... I didn't like it at all.



This person lend me the other two of the saga, but... why?

Black Swan (2010)
Happened something similar to The King's Speech. But I'm not so familiar with Portman's career, and I had a really good surprise, she was amazing in this role.

Gaby's rating:
People who added this item 1514 Average listal rating (987 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.5
Due Date (2010)
There were mood for a comedy, so this was picked. Falls a lot into clichés, Galifianakis it's just the perfect guy to make crazy and succeeds!

People who added this item 874 Average listal rating (593 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7
Buried (2010)
I was curious about this film, with just one actor, and one location. I thought it would be more scary, but instead it's a good thriller that keep you alert.

People who added this item 1351 Average listal rating (805 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.7
It seems another romantic comedy, but it isn't. The characters do not give themselves easily to a typical love story, because they bump all the time with reality, where all is not roses.

People who added this item 831 Average listal rating (593 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.8
Unstoppable (2010)
Washington was solid, and Pine the typical rookie that thinks he knows everything. Based in true events, the end is pretty predictable, but as an action movie it's really good.

People who added this item 1759 Average listal rating (1227 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.9
Crank (2006)
Not one of my favorites movies of Statham. Dind't like it so much, and I'm not planning to see the second part.

People who added this item 1894 Average listal rating (1318 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.5
Bruce Willis made an appearance, so I have to watch it ;) Actually I was attracted for all the action cast, and want to give another chance to Statham (after the previous item). The plot is not very elaborate but it's a pretty decent action movie.

People who added this item 3478 Average listal rating (2295 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.7
Too much promoted and unlike what happened with Th King's Speech, it didn't impress me at all. I mean, it was a good movie, but just another biographical movie.

People who added this item 952 Average listal rating (574 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 5.8
Eat Pray Love (2010)
I got bored... a lot! Too long, too slow. I didn't read the book, I'm sure that is better to enjoy.

People who added this item 1003 Average listal rating (655 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.4
This movie was recommended to me so badly, that I finally gave up and watched. It's really crazy and funny. A good Britain comedy.

People who added this item 372 Average listal rating (246 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 5.7
And right after watched the original I found out that there was an American remake. Caught my attention so I watched...I would have liked it more if I hadn't seen the Britain version before.

The Fighter (2010)
I wanted to see this new Bale's transformation. The movie it's not great, but his performance is impeccable.

People who added this item 1213 Average listal rating (783 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.4
A romantic comedy with Adam Sandler surrounded by beautiful women, that's a dream... for him. I like her, but I just don't see Sandler in this kind of movies.



I loved the little girl, Bailee Madison.
People who added this item 716 Average listal rating (431 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.1
The Switch (2010)
To erase the Sandler image, I saw this one. Tender, a little predictable, liked Bateman performance.

People who added this item 4633 Average listal rating (3014 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.4
I was really curious about this film, I grew up with Lewis Carrol original story and at first I was a little lost. I love the Burton's visuals, his hands are all over the film. I liked Bonham-Carter performance, but Hatthaway not so much.
As a Burton's version it's what you expect.

People who added this item 3170 Average listal rating (1949 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 7.9
This one was also highly recommended.
I'm just going to say that I didn't like it in any way.



To justify my opinion I should write a whole review, and this is not the place.
People who added this item 1319 Average listal rating (801 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.2
I liked it, it was a little slow at some point, but it's a good movie, and like McGregor performance. The end was a little unexpected!

People who added this item 4158 Average listal rating (2723 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.6
Yeah, I know, I saw it just last month! It's a new classic and I don't know why I dind't watch it before.
I liked it, I liked Bale, I never saw him in this kind of role and he really surprised me.

People who added this item 725 Average listal rating (491 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.6
The Mechanic (2011)
Let's say it's a nice action movie, it's the perfect role for Statham. I like Ben Foster's role. Like Sutherland's small appearance. I was surprised in the end, I didn't see it coming.

People who added this item 1241 Average listal rating (812 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7
I like it. It was a little slow and confusing in some moments, but I enjoyed it. I liked the Damon-Blunt couple.

People who added this item 1893 Average listal rating (1251 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.5
Source Code (2011)
Since I heard about this movie, I wanted to watch it. I was intrigued about how they would resolve the end, and I liked it. It's an entertaining movie.

People who added this item 587 Average listal rating (363 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.5
Morning Glory (2010)
I like Rachel MacAdams, and there were mood for something light. It's a nice comedy, and I liked Ford´s perfomance: you spend the whole movie trying to punch him in the face and you end up feeling sorry for him.

People who added this item 1733 Average listal rating (1177 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.4
Limitless (2011)
I watched it because De Niro was in it, I'm not a big Cooper's. It was entertaining, not a great movie but entertaining.

Cooper was one of the producers, maybe an average actor like him paid just to be able to humillate the great De Niro at the end!LOL

People who added this item 1671 Average listal rating (1021 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6
The Tourist (2010)
I watched it despite all bad reviews I read, and why? because Johnny Depp was on it... and obviously that wasn't enough. There were no chemistry between them at all! She was like a ghost walking in slow motion throughout the whole movie, and he had the most pathetic line ever ("But I'm in love with you") watching her leaving him. The end was good but didn't save the movie.

People who added this item 763 Average listal rating (458 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.4
Hereafter (2010)
The beginning was promising but as the movie progressed I was expecting something to happen. It was a little slow, it wasn't bad but I don't know, I wasn't completely satisfied.

People who added this item 3494 Average listal rating (2171 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.4
It took me a long time to finally watch this movie. It started as an interesting movie, but maybe I was a little tired or the movie was too slow in some points that I almost fell asleep. The end was both liberating and unsatisfactory.

People who added this item 3499 Average listal rating (2416 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.6
Watchmen (2009)
Certainly the most bizarre super hero movie I ever seen. I never read the comic so I can judged it that way but I want to watch a superhero movie and instead a saw a bunch of characters with a lot of personal issues.
I didn't hate it but didn't quite convince me.

People who added this item 358 Average listal rating (249 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.2
Blitz (2011)
At the moment to watch an action movie this one was chosen. Statham is a bad ass cop who doesn't take the rules seriously in the pursuit of a cop killer. The plot is not too pretentious, but about an action movie is not a disappointment.

People who added this item 2265 Average listal rating (1463 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.5
127 Hours (2011)
A very strong movie, with great scenarios and a solid performance of Franco. Liked it.

People who added this item 3985 Average listal rating (2636 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8
Always leave this movie for later... and so it took three years to watch it. But I finally did it, and I liked it, is a strong movie with solid performances. I should see it before but it was worth the wait.

People who added this item 3095 Average listal rating (2159 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.7
It's an entertaining film,with great fx and action scenes. I was pleased because the film respects the line of the other X-men movies and did not try to reinvent the story.
Love the Wolverine cameo!

Equilibrium (2002)
I was really curious about this film. Had some Matrix touches in some points, was a little weird but I liked it.
Bale is a perfect cold stone at first, and it's great when you can see his emotions emerge.

People who added this item 871 Average listal rating (599 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.2
The Bank Job (2008)
Please, don't think I have an obsession with this guy, ok? LOL
I heard it was a good movie, with a good robbery plot based on true events.
It was a little predectible but well executed. I liked it.

People who added this item 3190 Average listal rating (2061 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.4
Oldboy (2003)
I watched this movie because was highly recommended, but I was a little reluctant to it.
For me was a good action movie with a promising plot and a very disconcerting ending, but I didn't see the greatness and magnificence some reviews talks about.

People who added this item 540 Average listal rating (320 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7
The Lookout (2007)
Another recommended heist movie. At first I dind't know where the movie was going. I couldn't see how the robbery fit in the story.
Is like two different movies, first a drama, then a heist movie... anyway it wasn't so bad.

People who added this item 1422 Average listal rating (848 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.2
A romantic comedy, entertaining, some laughs, but nothing new.

Finally I watched the last movie of the saga (last?).
I don't like Penelope Cruz so much, I thaugh she would spoil the movie, but she couldn't! lol
I really enjoy it, it was very entertaining... and I love the soundtrack!

I wanted to watch a Van Damme movie. I was a fan back in the 90's and took a long since the last time I watched one.
I found a more mature Van Damme, not the one who used to kick butts left and right... but equally effective to defeat the bad guys!

People who added this item 1278 Average listal rating (869 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.3
Fast Five (2011)
It's not the first one, but was what I expected: a good action movie, with incredible action sequences... it's a good Diesel-Walker return, faster and much more furious.

People who added this item 667 Average listal rating (366 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5
Following (1999)
First Christopher Nolan featured film. I don't know how I endend watching this work, but I found both strange and interesting. A solid and simple plot with a speechless end.

People who added this item 746 Average listal rating (482 ratings) 4.8 IMDB Rating 5.4
The Smurfs (2011)
I return to my childhood for a moment! I loved those little blue creatures, and they're back! They proved you can look good on 3D!

People who added this item 385 Average listal rating (239 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.1
JCVD (2008)
Wow, I was not prepared for that monologue. I watched it because I read several good critics, talking very well about Van Damme performance.
As I said before, I loved this guy long ago and I was pleasantly surprised.
