Monster In Law - Man I have no Idea why people love J-Lo so much...seriously I've seen better butts when I'm walking down the streets of Budapest....and her voice is so annoying....
Apocalypto- I really don't know what to say about this film. You can't really explain it to anyone who hasnt seen it.
PS-That is NOT a good thing.
Hoot - Nice little kids film. Some, if not most, of the Hiassen feel seemed to have gotten lost, though. That was disappointing. My kids liked it. They liked the book, too.
Firewall - I expected this to be pretty bad, but I actually thought it was OK. Some suspension of reality is required for proper enjoyment.
The Pink Panther - the Steve Martin remake. Very so-so, but my kids absolutely loved it. They must have watched it 1/2 dozen times since Christmas.
And I watched the end of The Princess Bride the other night. It's pretty much impossible for me to not smile when I watch that movie.

I watched Polar express last night. Not too bad for a kids christmas movie. Don't ask me why we were watching a christmas movie in January. Probably just trying to clean off the DVR.
The Hills Have Eyes
Gross. Not scary. Just Gross.
Children of Men - kind of leftist but still a very interesting and thought provoking story. A decent amount of hidden stuff and the acting and cinemetography are superb. It was kind of confused and boring in parts and the end could have been more moving but I would definitely recommend it.
You Got The Tony!!!!!!
History of Violence - it was almost as boring as some of my history lessons....
The Good Shepherd. Fairly interesting spy movie, but nothing in it really grabbed me. Maybe it's just because I'm not familiar with the time period.
Lost in Translation. Cool movie. Everything about the movie has a very East Asian feel - not just the setting, but the pacing and cinematography too.
At your own risk
It started off interesting but then....
it was moving.....too.....S...l...o...w....
Its a nice movie for Travel Channel to display I guess

I just saw "Children of Men" today My take is that technically it was a great movie - the directing, the cinemetography - the sound, the lighting all that kind of stuff was first rate and certaining award worthy. The acting was also excellent. There were a few 'action scenes" I guess I'd call them, that were thrilling - and technically a masterpiece.
However, "The message" fell a little flat to me. The big emotional ending fell a little flat to me. I didn't find the film that thought provokingat all really.
But the movie was excellent and I'd recommend highly. It takes about 20 minutes to kinda get kick started though but after that it held my attention for sure.
There were a couple of scenes I may not ever forget
The Night Listener
You, Never? Did the Kenosha Kid?
Borat - i wasn't sure to see it or not...but decided to finally give it a look...some scenes were a bit too much really....I just don't understand why some movies think people like to get grossed out?
I just got Gridiron gang from netflix today and watched it when I got back from class.
First thought, Holy god Jurnee Smolett is hot.
The movie was pretty amazing, I really enjoyed it.
After seeing this I would really like to see the documentary that was made back in the early 90's
Note to VA... Ummmmm is that not a spoiler?
"Little Miss Sunshine"
Well... if I'd never heard of the movie and just caught it on HBO late some night I would've liked it better. I didn't think it lived up to the hype. It was funny... but not as funny or as good as I expected.
Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

The remake with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. I enjoyed it alot. Lane is always entertaining. Who wouldn't like the Broadway musical, Springtime for Hitler? I really enjoyed the original with Gene Wilder too.
