Finally got around to watching Rise of the Planet of the Apes the other night. I disliked the Tim Burton version of Planet of the Apes so much that I'd skipped the sequel in the theatres. I was pleasantly surprised by Rise--it had the heart that Burton's movie lacked, and they were wise enough to keep the story fairly simple.

^I'll have to check this out, as like you I was not a fan of the Burton re-make. In fact, I don't think I ever finished watching it (this happens with me and a lot of movies).

Danny and I went to see The Hunger Games a couple of weekends ago. We loved it. You do have to get used to the shaky camera gimmick, which is totally unnecessary at some points. But overall we thought it was great. We both had read the book beforehand, though.

We rented Drive last weekend. I had mixed feelings about it. Danny was enthralled with it. I thought the storyline was a little bipolar. First it's a heist story with him playing the getaway driver; then no, wait, it's a romance with him falling for the girl next door; oh no, just kidding, it's a racing movie, he's going to be a race car driver; no, kidding again, it's a mob movie. I stayed awake for the whole thing, though, which really says something coming from me.

I hated Country Strong, too! I had heard several people say it was such an amazing movie, but I was bored to death. Terrible music, terrible story.

^I thought Drive was interesting--sort of an "existential" film noir thing. Albert Brooks was great as a rather odd gangster.

Just saw "Wrath of The Titans".

It was fun.

Relentless. Loud. Big 3D.

Fun.

And Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson looked
(and sounded) like they were enjoying themself,
playing against (and with) each other,
as Hades and Zeus.

^more importantly, how scantily clad was Sam Worthington?


I won't see Hunger Games till I finish reading the book and I haven't started yet :)

Well last night I saw The cabin in the woods. WOW what a movie.
Let me tell you I have never had this much fun in a theater since scream. Listens to the tagline "you THINK you know the story".
I'ts defiantly not you average clichè movie with the drunken teenagers who go in the woods and get slaughtered.
It's just a amazing movie theater experience.
Even of you don't like horror movies your going to like this one. And I think we have a horror classic on our hands 9.5/10. The movie is just pure awesomeness =)

Oh I also saw wrath of the Titans. And because The cabin in the woods was so awesome I didn't care about the movie. But what I did watch it wasn't all that 5.5/10

^ Awesome! As you can see in the page before I am VERY excited about it... seeing it tomorrow but I hear it's great from critics as well as you! A horror movie with a 91% on rotten tomatoes will get my money EVERY TIME! Especially a very fun one.

Also you're 16... so you saw Scream in the theater when you were one? :P Just kidding! Glad you like it... I should have a review up by tomorrow! EXCITED!
