Scary Movie 3 (2003)

I was always against seeing these movies cuz they look stupid and like a waste of time. But I heard enough about it to check it out and although there were some really gross parts, there were so many really funny parts and I found I really liked the film. I will probably see the others for some more easy going, spoof laughter.

Hot Fuzz (2007)

I really enjoyed this movie. It is a mock-action movie. There were subtle comedies throughout and it was ridiculous and funny. There are some scenes of obviously fake violence in the end that were pretty great (similar to Shaun of the Dead, same director). I would recommend this movie to most people.

Airplane! (1980)

Hilarious 80's flick. Always find something new. Very witty, keeps you laughing throughout.

I Love You To Death (1990)

The concept of the movie was kind of disturbing, but in the end it was a fun and entertaining movie. I thought it ended pretty good too.

Shooter (2007)

I don't feel like I can give this movie a fair review considering I was very tired while watching it and fell asleep through some parts. That said, there were some classically stupid one-liners and some cheesy parts, but it was all fun action and kinda cool. The end threw me off as the character kind of changes his character in a weird way. So I'm not sure the story and character development were that great. But there were some really cool parts and I like Mark Wahlberg and Michael Pena. Danny Glover, in my opinion, did a pretty bad job.

Bridge to Terabithia (2007)

This movie was ok overall. At first it was boring and the acting sucked and it was really childish. But then after a while, the movie was very touching and emotionally tied you to the characters. The music throughout the movie was overly dramatic and kind of hard to listen to. I guess in the end it did it's job even though I didn't enjoy all of it.

Y Tu Mama Tambien (2002)

I think this movie could have been good if there weren't so much sex in it. It was practically a porno and extremely uncomfortable to watch.

The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

I really enjoyed this film too. They are all pretty similar. Another great car chase, but very similar to the one in the second Bourne movie. And it is a very smartly written, almost witty script. My only complaint was that most of the fighting scenes it was hard to tell what was going on because of the intense camera movement and quick cuts.

The Bourne Supremacy (2004)

This movie was good for a sequel. It has a great car chase at the end and some amazing shots!

The Bourne Identity (2002)

Cool action film. Enjoyable story. Mostly typical, but great to watch.

Music And Lyrics (2007)

This was a cute movie. Also ridiculous and corny at times, but a good story and some good laughs.

Rumor Has It (2005)

This movie was ok. The premise behind it was kind of stupid and some of the characters were ridiculous also. But there were parts that were entertaining and sweet. If anything, I enjoyed the acting most.

Zodiac (2007)

Really great movie. It was a bit too long. They could have cut out about 30 minutes and had it be a lot more concise and better. But I can see why they did that, to show how much time went by while they were seeking out the Zodiac. Really graphic death scenes, but only a couple of them, so it wasn't too bad to wince at the few. Great acting. Well done. Good soundtrack.

No Reservations (2007)

I really enjoyed this movie. The guy is great and funny. The actors are all really good. It is more about the little girl losing her mother than the romance between the two adults. I almost cried a couple times. I would recommend seeing this movie at least once, maybe renting...

Jesus Camp (2006)

This movie left me disgusted. I have seen enough of this as a Christian to be embarrassed to bear the name at times. It saddens me that these people are teaching kids a message of hate and not of love, not of compassion. They are not teaching Jesus, they are influencing kids in a wrong way. It is unbiased and shows both sides: Christians who are against this type of religious activity as well. But it is obvious which side most people are repulsed by.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)

"You are weak Harry Potter!" -Voldemort
Um, it was ok. Very similar to other Harry Potter films. It felt kind of boring though throughout most of the movie, probably because of the acting. But I enjoyed it and I thought the world and it's new characters were fascinating. I will probably watch all the films, but now own any of the films or the books. I don't enjoy Rowling's style of writing.

Paris Je T'aime (2007)

This is a collaboration of 18 short films about love stories in Paris: an old couple, a mother and son, an engaged couple, two teenagers meeting, etc. All the stories were done by different directors. The movie was really awesome. I enjoyed most of the stories. The people I went with said it was a bit too long, which I can understand. They could've done without 2 or 3 of the shorts. But I really enjoyed this foreign film and I think most people will also.

Old Joy (2006)

This movie moved slowly, like real life. It is a very realistic story about old friends getting together again to go camping. It reminded me as if I were reading a short story, not a script. I think ultimately, although not much happens in the movie, I really liked it. It is a very well done and simple film.

Premonition (2007)

I really enjoyed this movie. I was surprised by the ending. It is a story about a broken relationship and whether or not you can change fate, or if you would change it if you could. I thought it was a good movie to see once.
