Salt (2010)

When I first saw the trailer for this film, it really looked like a movie I wanted to see. Though, despite my interest after seeing the trailer – I waited a bit to see what others thought. From the reviews I read, many people just didn’t like the film. Though, I went to see it anyways. And, I can say – I was really disappointed. The film started out with a really good storyline – it was very interesting and unique in its own way. Though, somehow the movie lost direction after awhile – things just Read more [...]

Falling Down (1993)

“I am not a vigilante. I am just trying to get home to my little girl’s birthday party and if everyone will just stay out of my way, nobody will get hurt.” – Falling Down I had the opportunity to see this film recently. All I can say is, wow! This film is amazing in the way it tells a story – it’s really a story about perspective and how we view things. In the movie, we have a normal all around guy William Foster (played by Michael Douglas) who followed all the rules in life yet for some reason Read more [...]

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

“Everything changes with time.” – Prince of Persia: The Sands of TimeSince I was in the mood for a good action type movie, I decided to check out this film based on the video game after reading Action Flick Chick’s review (my fellow Filmgirl Force friend). I was not disappointed. Going into the film, I had a feeling this one would be good. Rarely do Disney films disappoint me. And, I usually enjoy Jerry Bruckheimer produced films. This one was no exception. The film had a great story to tell – it Read more [...]

Green Zone (2010)

“What’s going on with the INTEL? There’s nothing there. The INTEL is no good.” – Green ZoneRecently, I had the opportunity to see this film. Let me just say, it’s a very powerful film with a very powerful message. This movie really portrays how easily information can be manipulated and spread to make people believe it as truth. And, this film really is about truth and the trust we place in our government that they will always tell us the truth. At face value, can we really trust what our government Read more [...]

Iron Man 2 (2010)

“Anything can be achieved through technology.” – Iron Man 2 For those who follow my through twitter, you probably know how much I’ve been really looking forward to this movie – I’ve been tweeting about it all week. When I first saw the trailer, I knew I definitely wanted to go out and see it – I’m glad I did. (Note: If you haven’t seen the first “Iron Man” film or you’ve seen it but may need a refresher, I highly recommend seeing it first before you go out and see this movie. There are a few recurring Read more [...]

Kick-Ass (2010)

“At some point in our lives, we all want to be a superhero.”- Kick-AssWhen I first saw the trailer for this movie, I really didn’t have high hopes for it. I ended up seeing this on a whim in my quest for a film outing. (It was either this or “Hot Tub Time Machine.” And, I’m still up the air on that one). So, I decided to give this one a go. I’m glad I did. Let me just say, the title of the film says it all. It was definitely a “kick a$$” kind of movie. It rocked. And, it rocked hard. Going into the Read more [...]

Law Abiding Citizen

“It’s not what you know. It’s what you can prove in court. That’s how our justice system works.”- Law Abiding CitizenAfter seeing the trailer for this movie, I knew it was a film I wanted to see. It seemed like a film that had something to say. And, it did. The above quote sums it all. This is a film about a man, played by Gerard Butler, who played by the rules. And, when an unexpected event happened in his life – he tried to be reasonable and play fair seeking justice for an unlawful deed. Though, Read more [...]

Ninja Assassin

When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I thought it looked pretty interesting. The notion of growing up and being trained to be a ninja as a kid sounded very intriguing. With all these “assassin” type movies out there, it kind of made me wonder – are these people real? Let me just warn you about the film – it feels very low budget. From the very beginning, it just felt that way. There is some corny dialogue and some scenes that just makes watching the movie feel like a B movie. (If you’ve seen Read more [...]

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Since I was in the mood for action, I decided to check out this movie based on the toy franchise per one of my tweep’s, actionchick, positive review. What I enjoyed about the movie was its ability to tell the story of each of the main characters – it went back and forth from present to past to help me as the audience understand their background and how they came to be, and tie it all together to the main story line. This was presented quite well and in a very understandable manner. This movie was Read more [...]
