Pirates of the Carribean 3 (2007)

This movie was alright. It's bound to have it's boring moments, being a 3-hour long movie. But it was FUN and WEIRD, and I laughed a lot. The movie seemed a little too scripted. But the acting is enjoyably exaggerated. I really like the Pirates movies, and with the right carefree attitude, you will like them too.

Pirates of the Carribean 2 (2006)

I totally enjoyed this movie. The special effects were amazing. The story was alright, but a bit difficult to be complete since it is the second in a trilogy. But the movie is totally fun and the acting, scenery, etc. is very characterized. I really like the Pirates movies so far. Going to see the 3rd one tonight!

Freedom Writers (2007)

I really enjoyed this movie. It was really well done. Nothing new, and at times a bit too sappy, but it did encourage me to be an advocate for good change in this world. Hilary Swank did a great job and the teenagers did too. Great acting and directing.

Ocean's 13 (2007)

Clever and witty, as the Ocean movies are. This movie was fun and at times confusing, but all made sense at the end. It is about the same as the first in the trilogy, Ocean's 11. And much better than Ocean's 12. I would recommend it if you enjoyed Ocean's 11.

Evan Almighty (2007)

I got the privilege of seeing this film 2 weeks before it will be released, thanks to my cousins! This was a clean and feel-good movie, family-friendly. There were parts that were funny but I enjoyed Bruce Almighty better. I wasn't that impressed with the acting.

Training Day (2001)

This was really a great film. There is a lot of language and violence due to the nature of the story. It is about a cop training to become a detective, trying to bust narcotic use. The acting was just phenomenal, and the movie is very tense.

The Last Waltz (1978)

This is an amazing rock documentary. If you enjoy southern rock type of music, you will love this film. It is directed by Martic Scorsese and highlights the last concert of The Band, which has recently (over the last year or two) become one of my favorite bands. There are special performances from musicians like Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Neil Diamond, Ringo Starr, Neil Young, and many others. It made me want to sing along and dance. Loved it!

Bride And Prejudice (2005)

This is a modern day Indian version of Pride and Prejudice. I thought parts of it were ok, but most of it is awful. Especially when they go into musical style and sing these wretched songs. I fast-forwarded through most of them. I would not recommend this movie.

Shrek the Third (2007)

Shrek the third was an enjoyable movie. It didn't feel much different from the 2nd movie. I think the sequels are good enough, just not outstanding. The 3d animation was really good.

The Pink Panther (2006)

This movie was really slow at first and I didn't really like it all that much, but towards the middle and through to the end of the movie, it was a lot of fun and turned out to be very enjoyable. Just a really easy-going slapstick humor sort of movie.
