Movie Review: Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 1

As I type this I am still marinating on how I really feel about this film as I have just seen it less than an hour ago. Breaking Dawn starts the day before Edward and Bella are to be married and follows through their honeymoon, to the birth of their child, and ends with the death and rebirth of Bella as a Read More …

Movie Review: Jack and Jill

This is the first time that I have seen an Adam Sandler film in theatres. It was OK, some funny parts, many goofy ass parts. My mom thought it was hilarious! Al Pacino‘s role was ridiculous and the cameos by Johnny Depp and David Spade were equally ridiculous. I also liked the message of “beauty is in the eye of Read More …

Movie Review: Real Steel

Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as an ex fighter, deadbeat dad, and all around asshole. I loved it! I was vehemently against seeing this film at first, but then I said…what the hell! Real Steel takes place in the future when robots instead of humans compete inside the ring. Hugh Jackman’s character has fallen on hard times and owes money Read More …

Movie Review: Thor

I didn’t really dig this film at all, and I knew I wouldn’t. I think I became disinterested when I realized at the very beginning that this movie was going to take place in two different realms. For me, this made things very corny, especially when people from the Asgard realm were on earth in their ridiculous costumes and speaking Read More …

Movie Review: Captain America

This is one of the many comic book character movies that I wanted to see because it didn’t look corny or like a cartoon come alive. I loved this film! I especially love how it made fun of itself, the storyline was perfect and the ending I absolutely loved. Because I am not into comic books, I did not understand Read More …

Movie Review: Water For Elephants

This film stars Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame and Reese Witherspoon. I was happily surprised at how touching and great this movie was. I didn’t know what to expect, but I’d have to say it’s a combination of The Notebook, Titanic, and Michael Jackson’s Neverland all rolled into one! I have to admit that Reese Witherspoon was not very convincing Read More …

The Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour – A Review

If you’ve never seen Michael Jackson live in concert, or even if you have, this show is a wonderful and touching substitute. I felt emotional being in the company of thousands of others who love Michael and his music.  As I watched and enjoyed the show, I spent a lot of time ignoring what was happening on stage and instead Read More …

Movie Review: Abduction

Taylor Lautner is hot! He has proven that he will have a career outside of the werewolf in the Twilight series. Taylor is the main reason I wanted to see this film, but that wasn’t enough to make this movie outstanding. It is a good film and action packed, but the acting is corny and the plot sometimes predictable. I Read More …

Movie Review: Bridesmaids

So many people thought this movie was hilarious and it is currently the highest grossing female comedy of all time. However, I did not think it was funny! I almost didn’t do this review because I really cannot think of anything relevant to say about it other than I did not like it. I think this film was trying too Read More …

Movie Review: Hanna

When viewing the trailer for this film, I was not impressed and had no desire to see it. My thought was; so what, another female assassin flick. Big deal! I was also weary because her name is “Hanna“. All I could think about what Hannah Montana! However, Hanna does have some twists, turns, and fight scenes that are appealing because Read More …

Movie Review: X-Men First Class

I recall being very upset when I attempted to see this film on the big screen for my birthday back in July but could not because it was no longer showing on any local screens. After renting and viewing this film at home, I have an understanding of why it did not remain in theatres very long. It was cool Read More …
