Started the month out right with a good movie. :]
I'm on a Robert Downey Jr. spree right now, so that is why I chose to watch this movie, and I was not disapointed.
The whole concept of the movie was fantastic.

This is one of those "mess with your mind" movies that was kind of confusing, but I still liked it. And I enjoyed the fact that there were a few rancom big names in it that weren't exactly "big" at the time.

Seth Rogan (middle)

Ashley Tisdale

This was actually a pretty good party film. Typical? Yes, very much so. But it was entertaining and had several quoteable lines and laugh-out-loud moments.
I'm typcailly pretty skeptical of mockumentary type movies, so the fact that I liked this at all really speaks volume.

This wasn't bad for a western. But I'm not particuarly fond of shoot-em-up's so it was a little boring for me.

I'll go ahead and admitt it, I love these movies. I know, I know, they are raunchy and stupid, but I can't help but laugh out loud every time I watch one. And this movie was no exception.

However, it was a typical American Pie movie. Jim was still a little quirky, Finch was still strange, and Stifler was annoying as ever. Nothing really outstanding about it.

But good, especially for a sequal made years after the original.

Really? ANOTHER friends with benefits movie? How many does that make for 2011? Geez.
Anways- evaluation:
this was the typical movie with an expected ending. The only difference between this and any other "just friends" movies is that there was a child involved.

ATM (2012)
Tuesday, June 5th

This movie would have been much creepier if I lived in a city that actually had ATM machines inside little glass buildings.
Anyways, for a confined location movie it was nothing ground breaking. And they definitely stretched out a 10 minutes conflict into a 90 minute movie.

Also, the "solutions" that the characters came up with made me laugh.


However, the ending did surprise me, and I love unexpected endings, so I'll give it that. Also, the acting was okay, not awful like in many horror thrillers.

I was a little skeptical since it was, after all, a pretty disasterous flop in theaters. But I was pleasently surpirsed. This action sci-fi reminded me of Avatar, but I did enjoy it.

This is what I knew about this movie going in:
1. It has Heath Ledger
2. It's a gay love story
3. It has spurred a lot of jokes

In my opinion, it is a beautiful love story. A little dry, but I thought it was very well constructed.
Those who criticize it harshly are probably just opposed to the values represented in it.

Civic Duty (2006)

This movie had great potential. Maybe with a better cast and more realistic acting it would have been good.
I'm not saying that this film was "bad", I actually thought that plot was good, it had the right amount of action, and the resolution was good. It just need a little fine tuning, in my opinion.

I really liked this movie. The only flaw is that towards the middle it got a little reaptative.

The story line seems a little jumbled at first, but in the end it is all explained.

Minus one star for the name
Minus another 1/2 star for starring Haylie Duff
Minus another 1/2 star for the film description

Now let's begin the evaluation!

Okay, it's been done before. Again, and again, and again. Teens in deserted area/island/forest. Teens drinking. Teens begin to die.

The way the film is laid out is horrific. I don't even want to go into detail.
I hate rating it so low because I'm in love with Lucy Hale, and she actually wasn't TOO bad in here. Probably the best acting job out of the lot. The lack of emotion was just made the whole thing pitiful. (The first thing that I would do if I found my best friend dead would SO be to casually suggest that we "put her in the freezer so she'll stay fresh...)

I will give it this: it kept me guessing.

Big Miracle (2012)
Saturday, June 9th

This was truly a heartwarming film.

HOWEVER, I can't stand Drew Berrymore, so she kind of ruined it. It was also strange to see John Krasinski play anything other than "Jim" on "The Office".

I also think that I missed some crucial information because the verison that I downloaded did not had subtitles for the foreign language parts...thus, I missed whole conversations.

(anybody notice what I do on the weekends? haha)

This was probably the best "confined setting/mess with your mind" movie that I've seen for a while. I was completely absorbed from the begining, and didn't know the resolution until, well, the ending.
This was a very intelligent film with good acting. Definitely underrated.

Okay, I am aware that I am very much in the minority when it comes to 300...I can't stand it. I thought it was well put together, but just not a movie that I like. That being said, I actually enjoyed this spoof more than the origninal movie. I also enjoyed all of the other movie parodies thrown in (even though they did poke fun at some of my favorites like Shrek)

I know it's a guilty pleasure film, but I'm giving it a good rating.

I'm not a huge Uma Thurman fan, I really don't think that she is that attractive and I usually am on the fence about her acting. But she did a really good job in this film.

I thought that it was well scripted, although a little bit jumbled at times. However, if you are paying attention it makes sense.

So it wasnt flawless but it suffiently creeped me out, so I was satisfied

My biggest complaint about this movie is the title. "Eye" is singylar, and it really should be plural as the film is about both of her eyes. They should have named it "Eyes" or "The Eyes" or "Her Eyes"
Anyways, that's my rant.

Sitting down to this movie I was very much aware that it has been given an extremely low rating, but I like to stay optimistic. So here's my breakdown:

First 15 minutes - Good! Actually, very good. Bright colors, corny enough to provoke a few laughs, commical characters. I'm thinking to myself, "Why such the low rating? This is cute!"

By the 30 minute mark- I can kind of see why people would find this annoying, but I'm still keeping an open.

The rest of the film- I should trust IMDB more often.

Since this was an older movie that I had not yet watched, I was a little skeptical. It wasn't bad, a more "modern" looking movie than most that are over a decade old. Did it scare me? Not a bit. Was it creppy? Decently.

I suppose I would have enjoyed this film more if I had seen it when it was released. I've never been a huge Superman geek, and the only Superman TV show or movie that I ever follwed with Smallville. So, that being said. It wasn't bad. But it wasn't amazing.

I don't watch many dark comedy movies, but I think that I should. I knew that this was a spin-off of the TV Show "Dead Like Me", which I would have prefered to watch it first. However,the TV series is no longer on Netflix, and it just didn't seem worth downloading.

Aside from the main character (Ellen Muth) being simply awful, I enjoyed this movie. Not the best, but I liked it.
Now I am in search of more dark comedies (suggestions?)

First of all, I was surprised that I had to add this movie to Listal, as it is a fairly recently released movie.

It wasn't bad for a post-apocolypse movie. The acting was decent, and the plot was almost unique.
But seriously, the zombie card has been overplayed. Hollywood needs some new material.

Who the hell would get themselves into a situation like this? That is my one question.
The script writer for this movie obviously had some serious pent-up anger for his/her teachers. My gracious.

The whole plot was completely ridiculous and unrealstic. How could anybody
A. Be stupid enough to dig themselves into such a big hole
B. Come up with such ludacris "solutions"
C. Even BEGIN to think that any of their ideas would work

Was this movie supposed to be scary or funny? I'm really not sure.

I'll give it this- I really didn't know where it was headed.

I have a new favorite movie (or at least second, nothing can top Finding Nemo)

This documentary was brilliant. Simply genius. I loved it. Seldom does a movie of any sort (espcially "cut and paste" montages) take me through an entire range of emotion. During this film I experienced grief, joy, anger, frustration, pity, relief, and everything in between.

I'm in a state of awe right now. Maybe I'm giving it too much credit, so I will probaby watch it again tomorrow, but my God. I'm star struck.

Beautiful. Just beautiful.

A typical Adam Sandler movie...that being said, I usually can't stand him.
This one started out with promise and i found myself thinking, "hey! a decent Sandler movie?"
but towards the end it had reverted back to the typical pathetic attempt at a good romantic comedy.

Oh, and I feel so sorry for all of the beautiful women over the years that have had to kiss this man. Seriously.
