Spiderman3

What a HUGE disappointment!!! What happened. The writers failed miserably to deliver a smooth exciting movie. The actors were so under performing that every line seemed so corny and unbelievable that it was awkwardly funny. I don't know what happened to Tobey McGuire who I thought to be talented. He must have thought he didn't have to work b/c Spiderman would make money no matter what he did. He was so awkward in this movie that it seemed like he was a nerd trying to be a super hero. Every time he spoke, I would laugh because he was just so awkward. I never like Dunst so she was horrible as well. They shouldn't have casted Bryce Dallas Howard because she outshined everyone. She was able to showcase her talent in such an ill written movie. The first installment was the best out of the three. This was the worst. 1 out of 4

El cantante

The dramatic-biography of Puerto Rican salsa pioneer Hector Lavoe, one of the biggest Spanish-language singers in the 1970s. The tale follows Lavoe's passionate relationship with his love Puchi, and his skyrocket to international fame. But even when he has it all, Lavoe is unable to escape the allure of drugs and his personal pain. (per movies.yahoo)

The story has all the makings of a dramatic moving movie. It fell very flat. The movie was too choppy and the direction of the movie was so vague. The only thing good in the movie, I am surprised to say, is Jennifer Lopez. I think she did a great job bringing to the screen the essence of Puchi. It was hard although not to see her in the same light as a pop singer and it was really hard taking her seriously in such a dramatic role. Neverless, she did a good job or at least was the best thing in the movie. Marc Anthony looks better on screen than the pictures of him I see circulating but his acting is kind of flat and I just didn't get what kind of person Lavoe was. The movie was boring and I didn't understand Lavoe and Puchi' s relationship. 1 out of 4

Evan Almighty


Steve Carell is a very very very talented comedian. The movie was entertaining and I enjoyed the message of the movie. I love Wanda Sykes. She needs to stop doing the assistant type roles and get in there and get a meaty co starring role. She's so funny.

Vantage Point


Vantage movie was okay for me. It was very predictable for me especially guessing one of the surprising reveals 10 minutes into the movie. The stunts and action were great. But I thought the movie was just not good even with great actors. I thought Forrest Whitaker was too good for the film. It was entertaining but quality was mediocre. 2 out of 4

Fracture

Fracture is a suspense thriller starring Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling. Anthony Hopkins doing what he does best by playing a crazy brilliant man. It was a very good film. Ryan Gosling really held strong against Hopkins acting and they had great chemistry. The movie was also very funny. The writing was witty and all through out the film, you'd crack a laugh here and there where you'd least expect it. 3 out of 4

Horton Hears A Who


This movie was great. It really stayed true to the book but added some additional stuff that really added to the theme and even added another theme. It was funny and cute. By the end of the film, I was bawling and I was so touched by Horton's valor. Jim Carey did a great job giving a voice to Horton. All the voices were on point and it really will be a classic. 3 1/2 out of 4
