Watched a couple movies this weekkkkk:

16 Blocks - This didnt do that good in theaters so i was skeptical, but it was pretty good, Bruce Willis was a more relaxed older cop role.... i give it 7.0 out of 10


Failure to Launch - Was it me or did Sarah Jessica Parker look just way too old in this movie, surprised they didnt use someone much younger, but it was a funny movie and had it times, i actually liked it, the ending was just too predictable so it lost a good 1 or half point on my scale from that. I give it a 6.5 to 7 out of 10

nacho libre - not too bad, but definately not too good....

i liked napoleon dynamite, and yes, this movie was made by the same people, and did have some similarities in style & i do like jack black...but i felt he was held back, and this movie just didnt make me laugh as much as i was hoping...my girlfriend loved it but everyone else hated it

a 6.5/10

Well, I am ashamed to say this is the first time I've ever watched this movie in its entirety :-/ But I just finished The Shawshank Redemption and it was outstanding.....Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins were great as always.....I'll be sure to get this on DVD soon....Overall, 9/10


The other great movie I watched, though not for the first time, was Cool Hand Luke....Big fan of this movie from the first time I saw it, I recommend it to everyone....This movie is full of symbolism....I give it a 9/10 as well....

The wife and I watched Derailed over the weekend with Jennifer Aniston and Clive Owen.

Jennifer doesn't get naked in this (close though) but what a really surprisingly good movie. It started off a bit slow but it needed to for some character development but after the hotel scene it starts to pick up. Quite a different role for Aniston and while I doubt I would have suggested paying the ungodly theater fee to see this, it is worth the rental.

8.5 / 10

Nacho Libre... high.

One really funny part, and 3 or 4 other funny parts.

I want my 10 bucks back.

5/10

You're telling me you didn't like him in Robin Hood: Men In Tights? That's arguably better than the Princess Bride, which is priceless.


Also, you've gotta love his role in Liar, Liar. "Grrrr, it's the claw." :-b

I saw The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift the other night. The plot was pretty stupid, a plot that it seems like we've seen a million times before, but I did find it very entertaining.

It is definitely a guy movie, and the racing action is great.


I'd give it a 7.5/10.

I got some more reviews...

Mean Creek- 8/10 stars rory culkin and the main star from Eurotrip(scotty doesn't know ;-D ). Anyway, it's about a group of kids who plan to get revenge on a bully but the plan goes awry. These mostly unknown young actors deliver some great performances, I liked this "indie" type film.

Domino- 6.5/10 Story of domino harvey the female bounty hunter. The film has a cool visual style and kiera knightley is hot as the "bad ass" but when the plot thickens- it does just that- the story gets convoluted and switches back and forth almost too much. Overall a decent rental... there's also a cool documentary on the real domino harvey on the dvd

Chronicles of Narnia- 9/10 Wow, I really dug it. A great action/adventure movie the whole family can enjoy... one of the better disney films

Derailed- 7.5/10 Solid thriller with some nice twists and turns(didn't expect that from Jennifer Aniston). Clive Owen continues to impress me as well. All in all good stuff, just not the greatest ;-D

Superman Returns

I've never been a fan of Superman, and this movie did nothing to change that. Some decent special effects, and that was about it. Storyline was ho-hum. Ending was anti-climatic. Just really no reason to see this movie. I'm glad I got in free.

5/10
