X-Men (2000)
I had seen the newest X-Men movies, so i decided to go back and watch the first ones. I just love this series. I guess i'm a tad bit of a nerd, haha.
the worst part of this movie was Anna Paquin. i've never liked her, though. and i didnt even know that she was in the x-men series.

People who added this item 2678 Average listal rating (1766 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6.1
I never really had the desire to watch these movies, but i figured that i should at some point.
i was actually pleasently surprised. i don't see why people hate tom cruise so much, to be honest

People who added this item 4764 Average listal rating (3296 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.4
I was pleased the the sequal lived up to my expectations. overall, this series is turning out to be excellent. marvel always seems to do a good job

Honey (2003)
I am getting so sick and tired of all of these underdog dance movies. is the dancing good in this movie? yes. but not "my kind" of dancing, dialect, or music. so i didn't enjoy it.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 731 Average listal rating (465 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.1
State of Play (2009)
I always love Rachel McAdams movies, and this was no exception. I loved the drama and mystery.
and you can always count on rachel to be wonderful
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 49 Average listal rating (37 ratings) 2 IMDB Rating 2.4
Breaking Wind (2012)
Little disclaimer: i do like the twilight series, but i think that they screwed up the movies (books are so much better)
this moive was hillarious, i just wish that there were less fart jokes and the like. i really dont get why spoofs much always make fun of bodily functions.
other than that, i really liked this parody
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 1074 Average listal rating (715 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.6
Eagle Eye (2008)
For some reason it felt like i had seen this movie before, but i couldn't remember 90% of it. in any case, i knew the resolution, but basically nothing else.
anyways, i really enjoyed this movie. i love thrillers like this.
Lydia's rating:
ehh, i'm pretty neutral about this movie. didn't hate it, didn't really like it all that much. it didn't really hold my attention; but neither did the first one.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 3523 Average listal rating (2435 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.6
Watchmen (2009)
This was a very complex movie, and also very long.
its not that it didn't hold my intrest, but i felt lost through the majority of it. i know that this is typical for book-based movies, so i should probably read the novel if i want to truly enjoy the movie
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 88 Average listal rating (46 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.4
Freakonomics (2010)
Very, very interesting. I definitely would reccomend this to anybody.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 756 Average listal rating (492 ratings) 4.7 IMDB Rating 5.4
The Smurfs (2011)
I don't really know what i was expecting when i decided to watch this movie. i had never seen anything with the smurfs, the only thing that i knew was that there was an addictive get-stuck-in-your-head song that they sing, that's why i waited so long to see it.
but it was actually really good. there are some very touching moments that i found very enjoyable.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 5127 Average listal rating (3591 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.7
LOVED IT! Now that i have officially seen all of the X-Men movies, i can say that i am DEFINITELY a fan. :]
Lydia's rating:
Was this really necessary? it really felt like they were grasping at straws with this one. and that is coming from someone who actually DID like the first movie and is not totally annoyed by the chipmunk voices.

i did enjoy the reference to wilson and robinson crusoe (calloway, nerf, etc...)
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 2464 Average listal rating (1604 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.9
I had to finish up the trilogy before seeing the next movie. again, i was pretty pleasently surprised. i had never watched these movies because always seemed so cliche, but i actually did like it.
the only downside is that i'm not really into the super-long-everything-blows-up-every-ten-seconds type scenes.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 61 Average listal rating (38 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 4.1
Chain Letter (2010)
i watched this movie on netflix mainly because i thought it sounded dumb. but it actually turned out to be pretty good! it made you take a hard look at technology and privacy in our world today.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 79 Average listal rating (51 ratings) 4.8 IMDB Rating 5.3
Meeting Evil (2012)
I'm not completely sure what I was expecting- but this wasn't it. however, it held my attention and I found it to be very good. Although the ending did confuse me a little.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 274 Average listal rating (178 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.8
Martian Child (2007)
I've seen this movie before, but I am taking a Special Education course right now and we are curretnly talking about autisim, which made me think of this movie. I simply love this movie, it is so touching and heartwarming.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 1540 Average listal rating (1002 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.4
Road Trip (2000)
this was pretty much your typical teenage movie. which means that i loved it. they are my guilty pleasures :]
i did enjoy that it was COMPLETELY typical (revolving around a frat house party and beer)
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 5458 Average listal rating (3757 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.3
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
It appears that i have picked quite a few good movies to watch this week. tim burton films are usually a bit "out there", and that's what i like about them! johnny deepe did fantastic as always. and not knowing the story before going into it helped with the suspense.
i'm a fan
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 5861 Average listal rating (4057 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8.1
Movies based on true stories are always great to watch. I enjoyed this movie and it did keep my attention. not my absolute favorite, but definitely made you think,
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 1453 Average listal rating (938 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.4
Not going to lie, I couldn't even finish this movie. I know that some people might like it, but I was bored out of my mind.
Sorry.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 1823 Average listal rating (1189 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.9
Okay, another miss for me. I like stop-motion, but something about this one just really freaked me out. And hearing Geroge Cloony's sexy voice coming out of such a creepy fox really did it for me.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 2861 Average listal rating (2014 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.5
It's always nice to watch a movie with a unique concept like this one. :]
this movie was very refreshing and i enjoyed it very much.

9 (2009)
I'm always a big advocate for a good animated movie. In my opinion, this was one. I really don't have anything negative to say about it, honestly.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 328 Average listal rating (220 ratings) 4.7 IMDB Rating 4.6
well, i don't know why i thought that this would be good. i suppose it was decent, but the gore was not really appealing to me at all. there are two things that i hate: injuries to eyes and death in water. this movie has one, i wont say which
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 255 Average listal rating (148 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 5.8
The Divide (2011)
This is one of those "wtf" movies that gets more and more strange the farther into it you get. Very dark, very creepy to think about if you were placed in such a situation. I'm still in the air about this movie.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 333 Average listal rating (212 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.7
Hysteria (2011)
I usually do not like period movies, but this was an exception. Based on a true story, and quite funny. Definitely not for children, though.
A hit in my book
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 30 Average listal rating (13 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 0
This movie really kept me guessing up until the end. I like movies where you keep second guessing who the antagonist is. So another hit for me :]
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 4 Average listal rating (2 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 3.5
Lydia's rating:
I can't really say that I'm a fan, sorry.
And by the way, why in all spy movies do they say "here is your mission IF YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT?" You know that they are going to accept. Geez
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 318 Average listal rating (210 ratings) 5.1 IMDB Rating 4.9
LOVED IT. It was very well executed. There are many other movies similar to it, ill admitt that, but for some reason this on kept my attention
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 4741 Average listal rating (3098 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7
A little dull in my opinion, but there were definitely some funny moments. I really don't have too much to say about it, to be honest.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 1717 Average listal rating (1170 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7
I saw this in the theater. It was very...different. I really don't know how else to describe it. But I liked it. It was not what I was expecting, that is for sure. It was a good mix of comedy, horror, and mystery. I enjoyed, just, different.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 2316 Average listal rating (1491 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.5
Silent Hill (2006)
I've seen it before, but I didn't even realize it until a ways into the movie. I guess that tells you how much it impacted me. My second viewing was not that much more influencial, i must say.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 137 Average listal rating (95 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 5.9
The Double (2011)
Don't you hate it when you think you've figured it out and then you really haven't? that pretty much sums up this movie.
I enjoyed it, though :]
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 446 Average listal rating (291 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.4
Contraband (2012)
Typical drug-run movie. Typical mark walburg. not bad, just typical.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 112 Average listal rating (77 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.5
Bad Ass (2012)
It just really wasn't mind kind of movie. I guess it could be good, but it wasn't for me.
Sorry, miss.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 361 Average listal rating (251 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.2
Blitz (2011)
I keep watching action movies tyring to find some that i like. and while it wasn't bad i still wasn't impressed. although i did enjoy the sexy british accent ;]

The Rebound (2009)
I thought that this was going to be a comedy, i don't know if i would classify it as that, but i really liked it. it was a very sweet storyline- and a heartwarming ending is always good :]
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 2105 Average listal rating (1332 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.7
Ehh, it was okay. A little dark for me, but i knew that going in.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 1828 Average listal rating (1193 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.1
Such a cute movie! It really reminded me of the good old animation that Disney used to create- and those are my favorite :]
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 429 Average listal rating (270 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.6
The Skulls (2000)
One word to describe this movie: underrated. That, of course, is my opinion. But I found it very well done.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 344 Average listal rating (203 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.2
AWESOME! It was just like old times
As a matter of fact I had to do a lot of poking around to make sure that I had actually downloaded the 2011 movie. They did a wonderful job :]
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 4783 Average listal rating (3044 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.3
strange. strange. strange.
yeah...
that's all I can even say

The Fountain (2006)
This one is by the same director as requiem for a dream, so I was skeptical. It was fairly confusing, but decent.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 1366 Average listal rating (900 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 6.2
hahaha. I was weak. Spy satires are always great. :]

Moneyball (2011)
I would have liked this movie better if i understood more about baseball, but since i'm a little ignorant when it comes to sports, i'm sure that there were referances and puns that i didn't catch. but it was still interesting, i love me a good true story :]
Lydia's rating:
So cute :]
I love Garfield. The first movie was better, but it wasn't bad for a sequal.
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 49 Average listal rating (31 ratings) 4.5 IMDB Rating 4.7
Again, i feel like this movie has been overlooked, but did "The Skulls" really need a sequal? Probably not. But it was still decent. i'd reccomend it
Lydia's rating:
People who added this item 2088 Average listal rating (1399 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.1
The Mist (2007)
I was expecting something with ghosts or something. But what i got was totally different, and I liked it. The ending was very well executed as well.
