Moon - Absolutely loved it. I'd been wanting to see it for a while now and finally got around to it. It's a little bizarre but not hard to follow at all. I pretty much had it figured out really early on, but that didn't detract from how good the film was. I'm a big Sam Rockwell fan and he didn't disappoint. Kevin Spacey as the voice of GERTY was great too. That was pretty much the entire cast. The sets were fantastic, and I loved that they used miniatures rather than CG for most of the effects. To me it makes for a much more realistic look and feel. This is definitely one I'm going to buy.

I'll give it 4 out of 5 Mets.

American Beauty - Finally got around to watching this beginning to end and absolutely loved it. It's hilarious that the two perceived "weird people" in the movie are the ones who have their crap together more than anyone else. If you haven't seen it, do it. The acting is great, the plot is great, and the characters themselves interact spectacularly.

Collateral - Meh. I couldn't get over a lot of the unrealistic aspects of the movie (including both main characters surviving a car crash pretty much uninjured despite neither wearing a seat belt), and Jamie Foxx put in a pretty weak performance IMO. Tom Cruise was alright, but I thought the philosophy they decided to give him that he used to justify being a hitman was pretty weak; I just couldn't buy his character. The plot itself was pretty good, but the movie was lacking pretty much everywhere else.

Extract: Good but not great. It had its moments but it left me wanting more. I liked the "averageness" and quirks of the characters, a little like Office Space in that way, which is a good thing. All in all it had a bland feel to it though. I'll have to watch it again at some point and see if it's one of those that grows on you.

Jennifer's Body: I actually liked it. It was silly and had a campy feel, reminded me a lot of Jawbreaker. I didn't love it but I was entertained. Megan Fox was nice to look at, and her make out session with her girlfriend was pretty sweet. :-D

Valentine's Day 8.5/10

I know what you're all thinking, but this really isn't a chick flick. Its a comedy about relationships and love and all that. It was actually one of the better comedies I've seen in a while. All-star cast were all great, even Taylor Swift surprisingly. She plays an absolute moron who is "in love" with the captain of the track team.

Anyway I highly recommend seeing this one in theatres, and you can probably score some brownie points with the missus for going.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - Excellent movie. Great acting and a very unique story. If you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth a see.

The Wolfman 7/10

Meh. The acting was pretty good (I love Anthony Hopkins), but they made it almost too gory. Not so much as to make people sick, but it almost reminded me of the gore from cheesy horror flicks from the 80's and 90's.

Taken 8.5/10

Second time for me. Awesome movie with a great performance from Neeson. Definately worth the watch if you haven't seen it yet.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine 8/10

Another good one. I liked this more than the original trilogy, so if you liked the first 3, you will definately enjoy this.
