Becoming Jane
Posted August 4, 2007 : James McAvoy, Review

I haven’t read a whole lot of Jane Austen. Honestly, just Pride and Prejudice after I saw the Kiera Knightley movie. So, I could see elements of that story in this film – and was told there were also elements of Sense and Sensibility and Persuasion. Which, when rendering an author’s life into a story itself makes sense and is fun if

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

I didn’t like Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I think I will probably the second or third time I see it (on video). Because the things that were done were mostly done well.

Transformers
Posted July 8, 2007 : Review

Transformers is so much fun! I love Michael Bay and everything he can do visually. Actually liked the story and really enjoyed the characters.

It’s no secret that I like Michael Bay so I’m glad this ended up being a lot better than The Island.

Live Free or Die Hard
Posted July 1, 2007 : Review

or as I like to call it – Die Harder!

Yeah, it’s a little long and the jet/freeway scene is a little over the top. But mostly it’s great action and funny and a whole lot of fun.

The Queen

Sometimes I think I should have been British. I have a sort of heightened sense of propriety for an American. So, I really understood and enjoyed this film. When she says,

Superman Returns
Posted June 3, 2007 : Review

I finally got to see this movie I have heard oh so much about.

At first I kept thinking Smallville – how I was momentarily surprised that Martha Kent was so old. How much I like their version of Lois Lane better. But even though they cast rather young people,

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

When I first came out of Pirates 3 wasn’t sure what I thought. But the more I thought about it, the more I liked it. I was thinking over different scenes and realizing how much I just enjoyed the film, enjoyed myself while I was watching it. It’s fun. It’s funny. The monkey was frickin’ hilarious.

Shrek 3

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Shrek 2, so I actually was sort of looking forward to Shrek 3.

The Last Mimzy
Posted March 31, 2007 : Review

I don’t have that much to say about The Last Mimzy. It had some interesting and fun ideas that wove Tibetan mythology with Alice and Wonderland. It was an interesting story with some very pretty elements, but it wasn’t necessarily well executed. There were moments here and there that worked, a few laughs, and the premise and a

Little Miss Sunshine
Posted March 5, 2007 : Review

I saw Little Miss Sunshine this weekend with my sister and brother-in-law. It was everything I expected it to be, cute and fun and heart warming. What I didn’t expect is that I’d like Steve Carell so much.

I have an odd sense of humor
