Ghost Rider 2007, PG-13)
Smokin' Aces 2007, R)
Spider-Man 3 2007, PG-13)
Holy James Franco!!! I mean WOW what a great movie,I have to admit I wasn't sure if they could do better.I was WAY wrong! Tobey Maguire delivers again.Outstanding Special effects and great storyline.Take the kiddos and Enjoy!!!You won't be disappointed!Just an F.Y.I. in case you do have little ones it's pretty long.But Very worth it!!
Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End 2007, PG-13)
Better than the rest.
Stomp the Yard 2007, PG-13)
Premonition 2007, PG-13)
Breach 2007, PG-13)
One word OUTSTANDING! Chris Cooper delivers a powerful and very believable performance.Ryan Phillippe did an amazing job as well I think this is the defining movie that will make Hollywood wake up and now start taking him seriously as an actor and not look at him any longer as the young 'Cruel Intentions' kid.This one is a do not miss!!!
Apocalypto 2006, R)
Wow,Mel pulled another powerful movie right outta his back pocket.This movie is visually stunning.Another brutal in your face reality watch it and deal with it ,some scences whew!But this mans journey to find who he really was and what struggle to survive to see his family again is unreal.This man should get the BIG blue ribbon for the endurance test.Great movie,story moves fluidly.NOT a movie for kids,although I could tell my 14 year old son was sure 'eh hem' struggling to turn his head when a boob popped out every now and then,lol.All in all worth the watch,however if you are queasy with blood and gore might think twice.
Transformers 2007, PG-13)
My my my!!!My God I have no clue where to start! First of all do yourself a favor and go see this film ASAP.Second do NOT wait for this to come out on DVD you Will regret it.If nothing else see it in the theater for the sound.Michael Bay had me at hello with The Rock,everyone that knows me knows that is my favorite movie in the entire world well guess what ,Lisa has a new favorite movie now.Michael Bay you are a God.This man deserves all the $$$$ he will make from this.There are NO crappy special effects ,all the jokes are hilarious,solid story and absolutly the best action packed thrill ride I have ever been on.It is very intense in some scenes,I actually found my heart racing a few times,there is one special effect in particualr that almost made me want to jump out of my chair and scream! Those dam testosterone levels are all messed up again,me and action movies are like Peanut butter and Jelly.I also believe very strongly that any movie that can make you experience every known emotion to humans is a slam dunk! Shia you are the MAN! Mojo I could kiss you all over!Ladies and Gentlemen listen to me,I predict today that this movie will become the top grossing movie ever,it is defintely going to take the prize for best summer movie.So go see it already take the kids have a great time!Let me know what you think!I have a new hero and his name is Optimus Prime soooo 'Bring the Rain'!!!!!!Oh Oh,I almost forgot get there early to see the "Mystery trailer" this movie that is untitled as of yet as far as I know is going to totally ROCK it comes out 1-18-08 thats all I know,Looks AWESOME!!!!
The Number 23 2007, R)
I really loved this movie.First I want to say I do prefer to see Jim in the comedy roles much better,however it was a nice change to see him in a TOTALLY different role,he is amazing.He has a really dark side in this movie and honestly its kinda HOT! I dunno I'm weird, I liked the dark side of John Malkovich in Mary Reilly too though WHEW!Anyway really cool story here, some twists you dont expect and some sex scences that will rawk your world!!!
Evan Almighty 2007, PG)
Knocked Up 2007, R)
Surf's Up 2007, PG)
Live Free or Die Hard 2007, PG-13)
OMG! Holy Crap! I don't know where to start,Ok yeah I do,First of all for those of you that might have thought Bruce Willis was too old or lost his touch to play John McClane you have already cheated yourself from one of this years most intense,best action films of the year.Buckle your seat belt for this one,Never a dull moment,This movie is action packed minute one all the way through to the end!Some of the coolest stunts and action sequences I have eve seen,Strong (but scary) plot,great acting and of course the John McClane wit and sarcasm in all the right places,I'm telling you DO NOYT miss this movie!!!! 5 stars all the way!!
The Reaping 2007, R)
I have always liked Hilary Swank,So this movie had good points on its side before I even started to watch it.I really did like this movie though.Very entertaining,Keeps you guessing,and had some pretty cool special effects in it as well.If you like these types of movies with strange phenomenon and religious/scientific angles on these occurences then you wil like this.Check it out!!
License to Wed 2007, PG-13)
OMG! If you like comedies you will love this movie. I already love John Krasinski from The Office,so I had no doubt that I was going to really enjoy this.It is absolutely HILARIOUS! FYI The store scene with 'the twins' is a do NOT miss,Pee your pants funny stuff!Robin Williams is still full of his comedy genious its just a great film,Definitely worth the watch! =)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix 2007, PG-13)
Ocean's Thirteen 2007, PG-13)
So DAM Awesome! I loved this one,I was a little hesitant after Oceans 12 bombed so badly.But this made up for it in a big way.The whole team was in tip top shape and we are back to the brilliant writing and directing that makes these movies flow and synch SO well!Funny new characters from Brad and matt Damon,I dont want to give too much away,just trust me on this one,you dont want to judge this one by the last,just try to forget Oceans 12 like a bad dream.This is Great ,Great,Great 5 stars,Check it out! =)
Perfect Stranger 2007, R)
American Gangster 2007, R)
The Heartbreak Kid 2007, R)
Sicko 2007, PG-13)
Warning:If you have not yet seen this film,you may NOT want to read this there are Spoliers involved.Ok,with that said,I have watched Fahrenheit 9/11 and I thought that documentary was upsetting.This one was worse,I guess it toyed with the 'mother' in me and literally this movie left me feeling Sicko afterwards.And you will too,any American that watches this will be outraged to find out some of the things revealed here.It is so maddening and incredibly sad at the same time.My husband and I at the end said we need to move to Canada or France lol.But seriously this is some heart wrenching shit.I made it through the mother that had to deal with her baby dying becuase she sat around an E.R. for hours while the hospital bullshitted around with her HMO and her baby had a 104 degree fever and ultimately had a seizure and later diedand all the political crap was pretty much expected,but I could no longer hold back my anger and tears when it came to them interviewing the rescue workers of 9/11.These people are so fucked up sick,they cannot work,have horrible Respitory problems that will never go away.But the kicker comes when you find out that many other countries have FREE universal health care,Yes meaning you walk out of the hospital and NEVER recieve a bill,Ever.But guess what Bush did???He takes Al Qaeda prisoners and sends them off to Guantanamo Bay Cuba,Why you ask?Because they have free health care,BUT Guantanamo Bay is considered U.S. soil,so Michael Moore does the unthinkable he gets a boat and gets alot of the sick people from throughout the film plus the 9/11 workers and takes them there for free health care,Why not if we give it to fucking Al Qaeda members surely our own American Heros can get it right???Well I will leave you with that cliffhanger to urge you to see this,The outcome is pretty unreal.Make this one of the next Must see's on your list as an American,a parent or just a human you would be doing yourself a big disservice to miss this one!WATCH THIS FILM!
Stardust 2007, PG-13)
Oh you Fantasy film lovers are really in for a treat with this one.This is probably my new favorite love/fantasy story of all time.This is a fantastic family film.Perfect for the holidays,Michelle Pfiefffer looks Aweome!Well for most of the moviie,lol.Anyway extrodinary special effects,The previews and whatever people have to say just don't do this movie justice.All-star slam dunk cast,Which it was great to see Claire Daines,I haven't seen her in a long time,and Robert DeNiro,Um I will let that be a surprise,LMAO.Anyways very magical movie that leads up to a super intense climax.I know I said you need to see Sicko,and you do,just make sure this is the next one you watch with the whole family.There aren't enough stars or I would for sure give this one more!! =)
Bee Movie 2007, PG)
I Am Legend 2007, PG-13)
Halloween 2007, R)
Balls of Fury 2007, PG-13)
OK,I had read alot of both good and bad on this one.Personally again it was like the Brothers Solomon that stupid silly humor.BUT I would have paid $$$ to see this in the theater budday,To see Christopher Walken lip synching Pour some Sugar on me by Def Leppard was absolutely Fucking classic,LOVED it!
Rush Hour 3 2007, PG-13)
Saw IV 2007, R)
Well after seeing the others,I was really nervous about this one.How could the story go on with Jigsaw and Amanda dead right?Wellllllll,they found a way lol.Just as crafty, twisted, and intense as the last three this one did not disappoint,However I still do like the previous 3 better.But this is still definitely worth watching if you are a big fan of the Saw movies,don't pass on it. =)
Wow what a perfect ending to a great Christmas! I have to say first of all I think this has got to be the bloodiest movie I have ever seen.OK,moving on this movie is amazing I didn't know the story at all beforehand so I didn't have any prejudgements going into it.I was treated to a fantastic movie.I expected it to be anyway with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp but this exeeded my expectations.I loved the dark humor and all around it was just a great story and musical.Always an adventure to tag along with Tim Burton.Go see it! =)
Green Street Hooligans 2005, R)
Outstanding,So Elijah Wood can play more than a troll.J/K anyways this film is abslutely brilliant.It's about the absolute insane levels of loyalty that the british have for their Football/Soccer teams.Seriously Elijah Wood was amazing in this movie,great story,no boring spots,all action,violence,If I had one bitty complaint it's that I couldn't quite catch everything due to some of the characters' thick accents but thats about it.Oh,Another thing I am now hooked on because of this movie,Their film technique,I will be looking more into that and learning about this one cause I LOVE it,Again LOVE it.Ok,You know how on most movies during a fight scene things are happening so dam fast you cannot see wtf is going on,No not here!They have this KICK ASS technique that somehow still shows the fight full speed in the background,however when they focus on certain characters,say Elijah wood it goes into sort of a slo mo ,so you can for once actually seen who is getting their teeth kicked out,It's the coolest thing I have seen all year as far as those types of advances in film,I hope they start making more films with this process.I canttell you how many movies I have missed parts from turning my head for a minute or whatever and have to rewind Grrrrr.This is the Best! Check this out,You will love it! =)
The Illusionist 2006, PG-13)
Great film!I knew it was going to be,I had heard alot about it,I guess I was expecting there to be a little more magic in it.I think that's another thing is I kept trying to compare it to The Prestige and should not have been doing that.All in all though Edward Norton is awesome in this as well kudos to Jessica Biel and Paul Giamatti,which I will just add right here that I really didn't know what decision he would make since he seemed so farup the Prince's ass.He did the right thing =).Anyway see it if you haven't already,Oh and great twist ending.=)
Juno 2007, PG-13)
I have been wanting to see this since before it came out.Soooo much better than I thought.I had heard all good things about this movie So my expectations were pretty high to begin with.This movie is Edgy,Raw and REAL.See,I can relate with this movie more than ever,I was Junoonly a little younger,I felt this movie maybe more than alot of people.I loved the cast everything about it really.Only difference is I kepy my child,proudly I have a wonderful 21 year old son to show for it and now a 1 year old beautiful grandaughter .This movie brought back my pregnancy in the 80's being in school,how hard it was,I look back,I really don't know how I did it.Anyway this is a MUST SEE.I hope it wins tons of awards.=)
Dan in Real Life 2007, PG-13)
The Darjeeling Limited 2007, R)
I really liked this movie.I really didn't know a whole lot about it,other than Owen Wilson was in it,that was an automatic, then I wanted to see it.It was a comedic journey with these 3 brothers after losing their Dad.They get to know each other with quite a few bumps in the road along the way.I definitely recommend this one! =)
Things We Lost in the Fire 2007, R)
This was pretty good,I really like Benicio Del Toro,I think he is a fabulous actor,So it was good to see him again in something new.This is a story of an unlikely friendship that brings 2 people together by a tradgedy that the two of them both share.Its about overcoming and the journey to recovery when people can fall into the deepest darkest places in their lives.Great cast,Very good I think,Worth checking out. =)
The Mist 2007, R)
Pretty good,I can actually saw that I Did read the book on this a long time ago,I am a Stephen King and Dean Koontz Junkie.Anyway of course the book was better.Thomas Jane looked mighty nicce,not even a quarter as nice as The Punisher thats for dam sure.The rest of the cast I did not even recpognize,except for Jane's wife.It was pretty good,had some good effects and jump outta your seat moments ,Just not Over the top Spectacular.
August Rush 2007, PG)
I really didn't know what this movie was about before I saw it,which is a good thing after reading some of the other Flixster reviews now.Anyways I think that this is probably one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen.Keri Russell is absolutely glowing beautiful in this.Jonathan Rhys Meyers equally as beautiful lol and has a really good voice it turns out.The story is very touching very heartfelt,I have not been MOVED by a movie like this in forever.I am not going to shut up about this one for quite a while.Little Freddie Highmore has such a brilliant future ahead of him.I am a huge music lover so this was extra special for me.If you are a music lover sit back and turn this movie way up to truly enjoy all August Rush has to give,it would be a big disserivce not to.It is ear candy so tantilizing you develop this insatiable hunger for more the longer you watch it.Yes it magical,Yes it is beautiful and Yes although it may be a little predictable I guarantee you have never seen anything like this before SEE IT SOON! =)

[Rec] 2007, R)
Dammit!! Oh Hell no! This is one I will never watch again.My stomach is still in knots for God's sakes.This movie scared the crap out of me.This IS NOT your typical Hollyowwd Horror flick,NO it' not.At least with those you know when you are gonna jump,With this no chance,If you do NOT like scary movies or suspense don't even try this.If you are a horror fan bump this to the top of your list.Better ,scarier and bloodier than I had imagined.I have read alot of rave reviews about this and been really wanting to see it,now I know what all the hype is about,It was totally worth it.Ok,I am gonna go take some Pepto now.See Ya!
Sydney White 2007, PG-13)
Loved it! The thing I love about Amanda Bynes is that she and like Mandy Moore are NOT like the rest of the Hollywood young tramps.These girls are gorgeous,can act very well and have a uniqueness all their own.This was very cute I totally recommend this to anyone who is a sucker for the Underdog movies.Long Live the dorks! =)
The Brave One 2007, R)
I love revenge flicks like this.Jodie Foster is as usual amazingly convincing in her role as the fiance` of Naveen Andrews.Their attack was deadly and extremely brutal,no wonder this chick wanted revenge,Great cast rounded out with Terrance Howard as the lead detective.Highly recommending this if you have not seen it yet.
Shattered (Butterfly on a Wheel) 2007, R)
