I really enjoyed watching this movie again. It was even better then I remembered it to be. And it was much funnier then I remember too... I laughed out loud many times through-out this movie! It is a very fun and exciting movie! The entire cast did a great job. This is one of my favorite movie memories of the '80s! I am so thrilled I got it to watch again.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this one very much. It is at a slower pace then I am normally used to... but that really works with this storyline. I liked the way this movie handled entering a home without an invite. An idea I never seen before... as the way I normally see it the vampire just cannot enter... like there is an invisible force field in the way. So I got to see something I never seen in a vampire movie before this one... and with all the vampire movies I ever seen... that is saying a lot. This is one I definitely recommend... if you never seen it... give it a chance!

My Thoughts:

This is my second time watching this film and I enjoyed it just as much this time as I did the first. Sure there was things I disliked about the film. But there was a lot more good then there was bad. I liked the cast... thought they all did a good job. I didn't care much for the updated Superman costume. I much prefer the classic costume. I also not sure how I feel about how much Lois knows about Clark right from the beginning like this. Or how the fight between Superman and General Zod ends. Though it was kind of nice seeing a Superman movie that don't involve Lex Luthor.

My Thoughts:

This is my first time ever seeing this film... at least in it's entirety. As there was bits and peices that looked familiar to me. I found I really enjoyed this one. It has great performances from several big names. That being said... it is on the long side and a little hard to sit through. There is definitely some here that could have been snipped out to make this a better easier watch. Worth the time put in to watch it... but not something I could see myself watching often.

My Thoughts:

This is a fun movie... but far from great.. A nice way to waste some time with a few laughs and some pretty women to look at. But other then that this one really don't have that much to offer. The whole revenge thing was fun... but does seem a but too easy. I would say view it if you can see it for free... but don't waste your money on it.

You loved him in Shrek... now see where the one-and-only swashbuckling feline found his fame – and a very big pair of boots – in the "hilariously funny" (Associated Press) animated epic! Lover, fighter and outlaw Puss In Boots (Antonio Banderas) is off on the adventure of his nine lives as he teams up with Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) and Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) for the ultimate showdown with the notorious Jack and Jill (Billy Bob Thornton, Amy Sedaris).

Extras:


    My Thoughts:

    This is actually the first time I seen this one in it's entirety. Though I have seen bits and pieces before. While I found this one entertaining... I think it was more geared to the younger crowd. I liked Puss in Boots as well as Kitty Softpaws but found Humpty Dumpty and Jack & Jill to be lacking a bit. But over-all I think it is worth checking out... especially for a family viewing.

    My Thoughts:

    This is one of those "found footage" films. So if you do not like that style of movie then this one is definitely not for you. I personally enjoy that style of movie. It is definitely not the best one of this type that I have seen... but I did enjoy it. I like that they had Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter's sister on Dexter) in this movie. Since first seeing her on Dexter I have become a fan of her's. I liked the base storyline. I liked how they had fun with Jennifer Carpenter's character's interaction with the firemen before things got serious... and I liked how things progressed once they got to the apartment complex. Though I do think some of the scenes were a little too dark which took away from the enjoyment a little.

    My Thoughts:

    Lets see... what does this film have? Unlikable characters? Check. Predictability? Check. Entertaining? Also check. To be honest with you I don't know why I enjoyed this one at all. But I did like it. Far from a great movie but entertaining and I can see myself watching it again at some point. I mentioned unlikable charcters. Unfortunately I don't mean just the ones you are not supposed to like. But many characters including Ashley Tisdale's... who is the main star of the film. Granted it is supposed to show her growth as a person. But even then while better she wasn't what I would call likable. I mentioned it being predictable. And I mean just that. Way too predictable. I pretty much called the movie in the first 10 minutes. But then this is a Disney family film so I shouldn't be surprised by that. With all that said... why did I find this film entertaining at all? And I just don't know... but after all that I enjoyed it and happy I got around to watching it. Go figure!

    My Thoughts:

    The first time I saw the trailer for this one I thought to myself that it looked like it could be fun. Today I finally got around to watching it for the first time. And I must say... I loved it. This is definitely one of the best romantic comedies that I have ever seen. I think part of the reason is because it is not your typical romantic comedy. It is a romantic comedy mixed with action... and let me tell you... it works. I liked all the stars in this one. Chris Pine and Tom Hardy did their parts great... and Reese Witherspoon was both entertaining and sexy. If you never seen this one I highly recommend it! Lots of fun!

    My Thoughts:

    This is my second time viewing this one. The first time when we got the disc from Netflix (when first released). Even at that time only found this movie to be average. But found a blu-ray copy very cheap so picked it up. I find that normally most spoofs tend to go too far on the stupid side... what with immature jokes and all. This one does have that as well. But I found it to be better then some I have seen out there. There is some scenes here that I found funny. But it could have been a lot better.

    My Thoughts:

    This one I enjoyed quite a bit, It is a little slower paced then I normally like... but it works for this film. It has really great atmosphere... the characters was well done and the storyline easily kept my interest. I feel it is well worht the time put in to watch it.
