Heartbreaking. Simply heartbreaking. Every aspect of this movie. Watch it if you feel like being sad.

Nothing against Dakota Fanning now, but I always forget how incredibly adorable and how much I loved her when she was in her younger years.
This movie takes you through an emotional roller coaster of events. I enjoyed it. Good, sentimental movie.

I wasn't impressed, except by the twist ending.

As usual, I adore claymation and find it simply fascinating to watch, so I naturally liked this movie. The storyline was funny and kept my attention.

I probably would have rated this higher if I had seen a copy with better audio (whoever did the one that I got kept eating chips, rustling a bag, and talking to her small child)

I loved this movie. It was quirky, it was funny, it was over dramatize. It was basically the definition of HIGH SCHOOL.

Total Recall (2012)
Saturday, August 4th

Okay, I have never seen the original film, and since I never read reviews or anything until after I watch a movie, I was gifted with the element of surprise. And I enjoyed it.
I've heard mixed reviews about this movie, but I really don't have anything bad to say about it, other than they really should have made Jessica Biel and Kat Beckinsale a little bit more easy to ditinguish. It was a little confusing. Give one of them blonde hair next time or something.

Another good psychosis movie. It's pretty obvious throughout the entire film that the supernatural elements are all in his mind, but it is acted in a way that allows you to relate to the characters.

I spent a good portion of this movie trying to figure out where the hell I recognized the main character from, I finally gave up and IMDB'd it and felt stupid...True Blood, of course!

It isn't like I slected this movie expecting a masterpiece, but I almost felt guilty for watching this, that's how awful and demented this movie was. Just creepy and crazy.

Decent. I would have probably enjoyed it more with a better copy and if it had been more "the season"

Crash (2005)

I think this film is a little overrated, but it wasn't "bad". Aside from many emotional scenes, I only really felt "moved" once or twice.

Misha Collins did a wonderful job in this movie. It is not as bad as everybody thinks it is.

I had seen the remake with Chris Rock and hated it, so I was pretty skepticla about this. But I loved it! The remake was COMPLETELY unneccessary

This is a one of those movies that kept appearing on my Netflix over and over until I finally gave in a just watched it. It wasn't that bad, considering I can't stand Kat Dennings. In a way, it reminded me of my small time...creepy.

I'm still trying to figure out why the hell they found it needed to include random song and dance numbers...? This isn't a Disney movie. Anyways, it was rather obnoxious, but I enjoyed Cameron Diez, as always.

Nobel Son (2008)

A star-studded cast and a twisting plot kept me intrigued. A bit hard to keep up with at first, but once you get it, you GET IT.

Special (2006)

This was a different twist on the typical super powers movie. It made sense and you understood right where it was going from a few minutes in (in a good way, not in a spoiler kind of way)

Tin Man (2007)
Tuesday, August 14th

I'm including this in the movie section as it is a mini-series and therefore feels more like a movie than anything. I'll evaluate it in sections.

Part 1- Loving it. The acting is well done, although it feels a little awkward to have Zooey playing a more dramatic role.

Part 2- The acting is dying off. I'm enjoying how they are still throwing in puns from the original Wizard of Oz, but I'm getting a little annoyed with it.

I didn't even realize that this is technically a "sequal" until AFTER I had watched it. I really enjoyed it though.

I actually found this to be rather obnoxious and fairly predictable. I won't say that I hated it, but it was definitely not my favorite.

Watch a Nic Cage movie is always a gamble. In this case, I didn't think it was too bad.
