A review of "Over the Hedge" — 6 years ago
It was a pretty cute movie. I laughed out loud several times, but I thought some of the things were extreme (the bear saying “I’ll KILLYOU” was pretty creepy, the crazed homeowner lady was creepy, and other things). I hated the focus on junk food being so darn yummy, as it all looked really nasty to me. The portrait they painted of your average American was pretty dead-on, though. I didn’t really see a big message there, as the one that was intended for audiences (don’t lie, stick with your family) wasn’t really strong. Anyway, a cute movie.
A review of "V for Vendetta" — 7 years ago
I went into this movie almost totally blind. The only thing I “briefed” myself with was a quick skim of Ebert’s review. The movie was NOT what I expected but I also enjoyed it for that very reason. I thought at times it was a bit self-indulgent (maybe that’s not even the right term), i.e. where he asks her dance, when she kisses the mask, etc. Except I wanted all of those things to happen and so I was happy that they did, but surprised because I didn’t think it was “that kind of movie”. I liked all of the talking. And did you ever stop to think—we see terrible things happen to our national monuments in movies but never really see these things happen to British things? So it was interesting to see everything that happened in this movie. #1 thing I was grateful for: she didn’t look under the mask.
A review of "X-Men 3: The Last Stand" — 7 years ago
I have some complaints but it was overall very entertaining. I wish they had more character development. It seems like there are so many characters that we only get to see the ensemble and don’t get to spend much time with each person. B and I agree that each movie could easily be three hours and we wouldn’t care; we want to see more, more, more! She’s heard talk of a spinoff featuring Wolverine and I think that would be ideal! Adam says each character should have their own movie, at least one that focuses mostly only them. I agree! I want to know all of their backstories. I know that they have really detailed pasts and everything—I want to know everything! So, that’s my only gripe. MAKETHEMLONGER!
Also loved this movie. A good sequel to the first one. I liked that we saw more of Mystique and also Wolverine. I love when he says “Holy shit!” to the chick who has claws coming out of her nails. :) His character is just really fun and hot. Y’know.
mmmm... Wolverine... — 7 years ago
Hello, FABULOUS. Mimi is taking us to see X-Men 3 tomorrow and I realized: I had never seen X-Men all the way through, and had never seen X-Men 2. After watching last night I don’t think I had ever seen the first movie all the way through. LOVED IT. I loooove Wolverine. Yum, yum, yum. It was really entertaining and I never once thought of falling asleep!! That says a LOT about a movie for me these days. And I don’t know how Anna did this, but she did: she made B pick. She said “Okay, Batman, or Wolverine?” B picked Wolverine. I would have to agree.
A review of "The Constant Gardener (Widescreen Edition)" — 7 years ago
I fell asleep while first watching this movie, so I used the date that I finished it. Even though I watched it in “pieces” I was still really moved by this movie. It was poignant and I loved the cinematography. I cried at the end. It evoked a lot of emotion and in my book that’s a great movie.

This was our other gangsta-themed movie, with DMX in it. I was so confused while watching it because I kept saying “That’s DMX? Isn’t he younger? I don’t get it.” God, I’m so white and retarded—I was thinking it was Ja Rule. They both have those distinctive, rough and low voices. Anyway, a weird movie. I liked the style of it but as far as plot and characters go—not the greatest. I don’t feel like I wasted 2 hours of my life, but I wouldn’t watch it again. You do get to see some DMX ass, if you’re into that.
A story about "Baby Boy (Special Edition)" — 7 years ago
Unrated, because I fell asleep a half hour into it. I’m going to finish it eventually though.
a perfect mix!! — 7 years ago
I’ve seen this movie before, and loved it. Links to previous movies: John Singleton, the chick who played Jerry’s wife, and Terrence Howard (hello! he’s in EVERYTHING!). I would say this is one of my all-time favorite movies. I love all of the characters, it’s totally badass, not too gory, but still violent in an enthralling way. HELLO Mark Wahlberg. (The walking-across-the-frozen-tundra scene is so hot.)
