Movie Madness

Its blockbuster movie season and I've been doing my part to keep abreast on the latest and greatest. Now, I should let you know that I am pretty easy when it comes to movies. I have learned to not expect too much. This means I am rarely let down.

So let me give you a break down of the movies I have seen and how they rank.

The Soloist - not too bad. It was a little slow in parts but what else can you expect from a movie about a homeless guy that plays the cello. If you are steering away from action packed adventures its not a bad choice.

Wolverine - I heard a lot of people complain about this movie and say they didn't like it. My question to them is, What were you expecting? You have no doubt seen the other X-men movies, was this so much a departure? I think not. It was a good movie. I can't complain. I don't feel like I got ripped off by any means.

Star Trek - Of the movies I've seen in the past month, this one has been the best. I like that you have to think a little and put it together. Plus, it had plenty of good action. I think they did a good job of staying true to the roots of what Star Trek is at heart while still keeping things current and interesting.

Angels and Demons - This one was better than The Da Vinci Code...probably not hard to do. I wasn't a big fan of the that one. I didn't even bother to see it in the theater. I think they did a better job on the storyline and it had a good flow to it. I liked it.

To sum it all up I'd say that all of these movies are worth seeing but I'd say you could wait for all of them to come out on DVD and watch them in the comforts of your own home, with the exception of Star Trek. I think it is theater worthy.

I am bound to see more movies during the big show season but mostly I'm excited for Tansformers 2. I liked the first one, maybe my most favorite movie. I was fully entertained. Talk all you want about the lack of a plot but I left the theater and the only thing that could vocalize what I was feeling was: Entertainment Orgasm. I think I coined that phrase. Needless to say, I was thoroughly impressed. I saw it at least 2 more times on the big screen.

Thanks for the review... I can say I trust your judgement... my little brother... not so much. We will for sure check out Star Trek. I too am pumped for Transformers 2.

I loved Star Trek, so good. As a 'Next Generation' girl, I was pleasantly surprised!

I seriously can't wait for Transformers. They played the pre-view in Star Trek and when I heard Optimus Prime's voice I got the chills. That's twice now! And I could feel the hurt when Bumble Bee was told he wouldn't be going to college :) Does it come out when we're in Cape Cod...OH PLEASE SAY IT DOES!?!
