She's The Man

Directed by: Andy Fickman
2 stars
::spoiler alert::

“Shakespeare. I did this movie because of Shakespeare.”
- one of the actresses in the movie who made her debut in a “reality” film

Good Night, and Good Luck

Directed by: George Clooney
4 stars
::spoiler alert::

I think it’s well-established by now that I don’t like talking about movies within 24 hours of viewing them.

That being said, not five minutes after exiting the theatre, I told my friend, “I can say with 99.5% certainty that I will not veer from this opinion right now. I liked this movie.”

Serenity

Directed by: Joss Whedon
3 stars
::spoiler alert::

Considering I’m a HUGE fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it goes without saying that I’m a Joss Whedon fan.

However, I’m not particularly a fan of SciFi nor did I ever watch even one episode of the television series, “Firefly,” upon which this movie was based. Yet.

Hostel

Directed by: Eli Roth
3 stars
::spoiler alert::

Alright so I kinda feel like I need to write this in a sorta Tarantino-esque type voice, y’know? Because I kept seeing him on the late night talk show circuit, alright? & that’s just the p.o.v. that I get when thinking about reviewing this movie, y’know?

Alright so everybody pretty much knows the plot of the story, alright?

Match Point

Directed by: Woody Allen
2 stars
::spoiler alert::

From the start, I felt nothing for the main character. Nothing. He didn’t impress me, in fact, he seemed a little off-putting. But then again, I’m not at one with the British society elite.

Then Tom walked in. I would much rather watch a movie about Tom’s antics than anything that ole what’s-his-face did, even if it was murder.

Munich

Directed by: Steven Spielberg
4 stars
::spoiler alert::

I’m going to try and forget all about the old woman whose perfume bottle apparently exploded all over her who sat right next to me when there was an entire theatre full of seats and concentrate on the movie itself. Which is hard to do when it smells like every single lady at Saks’ perfume row sprayed at the exact same time.

Brokeback Mountain

Directed by: Ang Lee
4 stars

::spoiler alert - & not just for this film::

King Kong

Directed by: Peter Jackson
3 stars
::spoiler alert::

Let it be known right now that I have a special affinity for King Kong. After all, according to my baby book, it was the first movie I ever saw. I like to think that we saw it in the drive-in, no less, but it’s hard verifying that.
