Starring: Nicolas Cage, Diane Kruger, Justin Bartha, Jon Voigt, Helen Mirren, Ed Harris
Rating: 4/10

So despite my pretty much loathing of Nicolas Cage, I actually liked the first "National Treasure" movie - it was fun. So I thought, ok - I'll watch number 2. Nope, the magic is dead. The movie was over the top, nonsensical and Cage was, as usual, annoying. Sorry I wasted my time.

Starring: Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Shia LaBeouf, John Hurt, Cate Blanchett
Rating: 7/10

First of all, I saw this movie about a month ago. I have been slacking on posting, my apologies. Now, I am a child of the 80's - I grew up thinking "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" was the coolest thing ever because there were bugs, snakes, monkey brains and ripped out hearts. So I wasn't going to hate this movie. I did think it had issues, but overall, it was more of the same - a lot of frenetic fun, and Harrison Ford (somehow) still has it. Not great, but not a bad way to spend 2 hours.

Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges
Rating: 7/10

Actually something like a 6.5, but it was a well done movie so I'll round up. It was a good origin comic book movie, but it didn't blow me away. And I have to say, it's a great cast all around.

Starring: Hillary Swank, Gerald Butler, Harry Connick Jr, Gina Gershon, Lisa Kudrow, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, James Marsters
Rating: 3/10

Ok, a disclaimer: I read the book first. So of course I'd hate it. But seriously, besides the complete crapping on the book this movie took, it's just bad - corny as all hell, a horrible romantic interest in Connick Jr. (his character in the book was COMPLETELY different, and so likeable), and just - I spent so much time rolling my eyes at this movie. I didn't like it at ALL.

Starring: Jason Segel, Jason Segel's penis, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Russell Brand, Bill Heder, Jonah Hill
Rating: 10/10

In my life right now, I needed a good laugh - watching this movie last night, I feel like I got about 500 of them. This movie is hysterical, and Jason Segel's penis really should have gotten its own credit. I highly recommend this movie - it's sweet, dirty, and truly hysterical. GO SEE IT.

Starring: Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Freddie Highmore, Robin Williams
Rating: 7/10

So you know I watch anything and everything with Keri Russell in it, so this was one I had been looking forward to for a while. It was a bit overly sentimental, but if you buy into it and go with it, it's really a very nice film. However, every moment with Robin Williams is torture - he damn near ruins the whole film. I hated his subplot, and wished more than anything that he had not been in it. And, FYI, Russell and Rhys-Meyers have GREAT chemistry.

Starring: Steve Carrell, Juliette Binoche, Dane Cook, Dianne Wiest, John Mahoney, Norbert Leo Butz, Amy Ryan, Jessica Hecht
Rating: 8/10

I originally had no interest in seeing this movie - I really think it was marketed horribly, and that's including the dumb movie poster. But I was pleasantly surprised - this movie is basically a retread of "The Family Stone", which I also enjoyed, with Carrell in love with Binoche, who is dating his brother, a tolerable Dane Cook. It has a lot of heart, and the writing is well done. A nice movie.

Starring: Emile Hirsch, Hal Holbrook, Catherine Keener, William Hurt, Jena Malone, Marcia Gay Harden, Vince Vaughn, Kristen Stewart
Rating: 6/10

I had been dying to see this movie for a long time, and unfortunately I just don't feel like it measured up to what I expected, and the reviews. It was filmed gorgeously, and the story was interesting, but it just didn't have that thing to really draw me in. And there's the question of the main "character" - he's partly sympathetic, and partly - you just think he brought it all on himself. Anyway, it was an OK film, and I was just really disappointed in it. Too bad.

Starring: George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, Sydney Pollack
Rating: 9/10

Going into this film, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. The trailers never really moved me, and then a_good_storm over at movieness gave it a so-so review. So imagine my surprise when I completely felt engrossed in this film - I thought the two hours flew by, I thought the performances were top notch and, with the exception of, understandably, Wilkinson, subtle - which is really hard to pull off, if you ask me. I thought this movie was really excellent, and worthy of being nominated for Best Picture. Give it a shot - it is somewhat Grisham-esque - sort of like an "Erin Brockovich" without the message, the brass mouth, and the boobs - but, in my opinion, it's really really good.
