    Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter

    Silliness of the highest order. If you don't see this your inner ten year old will hate you for it. The only REALLY dumb thing is this...SKINNY MARY TODD! WTF!

    Yeah, Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was silly, over the top, goofy as hell, and a lot of fun.

    Fertilize the Blaspheming Bombshell

    Ha! Not much in the way of fertilization but it does feature the most woefully inept villains in the history of cinema.

    Brave

    I enjoyed it. It didn't get the level of reviews most of the Pixar flicks got but realistically I think that is mostly because it has a strong female protagonist and it is a sexist world. Funny side note, about halfway through the movie a moth flew in and landed on the screen, it stayed there for the rest of the film.

    Wonder Woman (DC Animated feature)

    SOOOOOOOO Awesome! If you are a chick, or appreciate strong chicks this is KILLER! I liked this better than any of the batman animated or justice league, etc. It is that good! If you are a comic fan this is an origin story with serious punch!

    Ted

    I laughed, it was both raunchy and humorous.

    I wish that it had tried to be more campy instead of serious, you know? I got a weird vibe from it. Anyway, I know the guy that made the ax and all of the bayonets, knives, etc. He's in the choir that I direct. Pretty cool! Also, loved Merida from Brave. She was adorable. And epic.

    Saw Ted last night. I chuckled, but didn't guffaw much as a lot of people did.

    I guess for me part of the ridiculousness came from the fact that it took itself serious, neat personal story. Agree about Merida, and hot damn is guffaw in need of a marketing campaign! great word...

    Amazing Spiderman

    I thought this worked very well as an Origin story. It may as well have been called "From Boy to Spider : The Peter Parker Story." Of course that wouldn't pull viewers. Where as the Sam Raimi Spiderman rushed through the origin stuff to get to the action, this movie mixed action with a lot of Origin stuff leading to the big finale. The result is that I care more about Peter Parker than Spiderman, also my anticipation for the sequel is greater than it was last time around due to such a rich back story being laid down.

    Amazing Spiderman. Liked Garfield as Spiderman a lot. Thought it was great.

    Savages. Kick Ass. Very very dark brutal story. Del Toro is outstanding as a crazy cartel enforcer.

    The Dark Knight Rises

    I enjoyed it quite a bit. As an end to the trilogy I found it very satisfying.

    I saw it at Midnight, but the power went out right at the climax of the movie. I didn't get to see how it ended.

    Imagine having sex for two and a half hours and right before you get to finish... she dies. That's basically what happened to me.

    Moonrise Kingdom. Seriously. See this movie, it is amazing. It makes you FEEL THINGS. It was one of the most heartfelt and charming movies I have seen in awhile.

    Maybe the best movie this year so far.

    Just saw Mooonrise Kingdom, really good. Too often the directors make it about themselves. Anderson told a story, a very good one and the actors were up for it.

    This is only starting to intrigue me...

    I joined the Batman Bandwagon. It was good. Ending was a bit cheesy, but then there have been worse. I liked it.

    The original. I had only ever saw bits and pieces of it and I must say it was even better than I expected.

    The Bourne Identity

    Cut about 30-40 minutes out and it would have held up to the standards of the franchise. Too much pondering and flashbacks, the movie should have been 95-105 minutes but it was 135 minutes.

    Ip Man.

    Gorgeous film. Interesting, too. What is it about the Chinese that allows them to make amazing music scores?
