War Horse - 9/10 - Great story about humanity towards animals during wartime. Shot on film instead of digital. Intense battle scenes without a drop of blood, impossible blue skies and sunsets.
Sherlock Holmes - 8/10 - Frantic romp with a few laughs. Not bad.
Sherlock Holmes 8.5/10 great fun! Inspired by a book, not just Guy's imagination, so my husband loved it! Better then the first in both our opinion.
OK it was an older movie, but man I had so much fun watching it I have to recommend it!!
Shoot 'em Up 9/10 fun violence! It's so crazy and can't ever really happen but I laughed out loud through the whole movie!!
Don't be Afraid of the Dark 8.5-9/10 great movie (although I'm partial to Del Toro) fun, creepy and his use of little kids (who are awesome actors!) always makes everyone uncomfortable. If it were an adult you wouldn't feel so bad! I still think Pan's Labyrinth is my #2 all time favorite movie!!

I love Pan's Labrynth! haven't caught this one, but just added it to my queue.
Have you seen The Devil's Backbone?
I think that one was more of my lesser likes of his. It's been so long I'm not really remembering it. I'll have to get it again.
Did you see the Orphanage? Another AWESOME movie. And of course there's Hellboy which is fun.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close 6/10
This movie honestly had potential......it had some real quality moments but as much as I wanted to like it.....I came away disappointed. It's a shame too, because Tom Hanks and I have a child together (kidding!), Sandra Bullock and I were best friends in college (yeah, right!) and the kid who plays the little boy looks distractinglly like the founder of this website (for real; see below....). Too contrived. Overall, the acting is pretty good, but I have to wonder where they got the guy who ruined a critical scene in the film. Because of his pathetic showing, I pretty much just gave up and checked out at that point.

Robin Hood (2010) - 4/10 -Who the *&^% thought this was a good idea? I went in expecting some good action, came out wondering why Ridley Scott kept his name on it.
Nominated for best picture.....well, what do I know?
Kelly, the oscars seem out of whack. I haven't seen many movies on the list, but it's because I don't want to. They don't look good. I know it's not the people's choice, it's their peers, but still. Can't they pick any good movies?
Unstoppable - 5/10 - Probably some of the most blatant cliches i have seen lined up for a premise. The director then slams moving, twisting, twirling, and flipping camera angles down our throats to make a train going 55 mph and a bunch of rail workers in front of computers seem exciting. Denzel is fantastic as always, but he has played this roll 50 times already.
