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!!

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close6/10 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.
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.
I had the choice this weekend between The Grey and the new Underworld movie. The Grey was playing a half hour later and I wanted to get back early and since it's over two hours and Underworld was an hour and a half, I went with that. Oh well. I won't bother to give it a rating, it's too embarrassing. And I saw it in 3D (well, Kate Beckinsale does look good in 3D, have to admit that) and IMAX, so it wasn't cheap, let's just say that and nothing more.
I'll see The Grey next weekend. Also thinking about Man on a Ledge and Haywire, but for some reason, both only had late shows yesterday.
