    So I saw Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, I have to say it was a very entertaining movie, which looks at our 16th president as if he was a super hero. The story takes a look at the events of his life and adds Vampires as a hidden subtext of all the events. Even though the premise is pure cheesy B-Film, the film impressed me, the acting was first rate, the story was good and you really feel that this film was made to honor Lincoln. In some ways this was one of the most accurate films about his life, and 90% of it was fantasy. I saw only one flaw in the film the vampire female was wearing pants. When a history buff like me can only pick up one noticeable modern Anachronism. Granted some of the fantasy elements where comic book features so we can forgive the Ax/Riffle, his near super strength, and a few other larger than life abilities. After all Lincoln is one of the Larger than life Historical figures.

    If you want a good Action flick that is both high quality and a little bit fantasy. go see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

    I give it 8 out of 10. (lost points for not being a deep story, but that is also the appeal)

    p.s. the "Car Chase" had me laughing out loud. You'll understand when you see it.

    Brave - 7/10
    Not quite as amazing as amazing as what Pixar normally puts out, but still very good.

    Ink - 11/10!

    Anyone who likes movies and has not seen this film should do themselves the favor and go see it. It will quickly become up your list of favorite movies after you watch. Its hard to really describe exactly how this film works its so very different, but the story they are able to create on such a low budget compared to the normal hollywood movie is incredible

    21 Jump Street.

    I went expecting decent retarded humor reminiscent of Hangover, and was pleasantly surprised with how meta the movie was. Loved the whole thing

    9/10

    Brave - I tried to avoid all the pre-reviews I could for this movie because I wanted to go in unspoiled because I tend to enjoy pixar movies and it has been a while since they released a pixar original, which I was excited about (especially since there has been no big budget animated film this year to impress me, Secret World of Arriety wasn't big budget), so I did have overly high expectations, which probably put me off a bit. However the opening was fantastic, the characters were very well developed, it's just the plot took a turn that made me go 'why did they do that, there was so much more potential if they did what I thought they were going to do.' But the actual plot has grown on me and I should have seen it coming since they did foreshadow it a lot during the opening. The actual plot has grown on me a bit and I do think it did work for them, but even then it was missing a bit of umph and felt more sweet near the end. It was also lacking a real 'villain' but I thought that worked in the movies favor. Now I still would have preferred if it had more of the 'heroes journey' arc I was expecting it to have, but I still enjoyed it, and it still had a neat message behind it. Miles better than movies like Madagascar 3, and I would suggest this movie over quite a lot of movies. Good fun, and visually stunning, as well as having a great soundtrack. 7.8/10 for Brave.

    not quite as "cool" as i'd hoped for. not sure what i'd change, but the climax of the movie was lackluster. it was a 5 minute scene and i was like "really, that's all he had to do?" kind of left me with a bit of a pit. movie was cool, but needed a bit more development on loki to explain his powers

    Had everything I sought.. Hawaii, aliens, action, water and they even included a shark. Can't get any better for someone who's a fan of all these elements individually.

    Jeff, Who Lives At Home: 8/10.
    Jeff lives at home. He is a philosophical guy, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know how life works. I loved this movie. Jeff, who is portrayed outstandingly by Jason Segel, is not the average human. He sees signs no one else sees, and he believes in destiny. His brother Pat, who is portrayed by Ed Helms, is unlike Jeff. He lives a mature adult life, but his relationship with his wife is struggling, and he is on the edge of a social breakdown. We silently notice how mature Jeff is, in his own way, and how Pat, who thinks he has everything under control, is crushing under his flaws. Events lead to a climax, where Jeff and Pat confront their individual problems, and in a public accident without themselves involved, they, with or without the help of a higher specie, learn how to stabilize their respective lives.
    Directed by Jay and Mark Duplass.
    Starring Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Susan Surandon and Judy Greer.

    Just saw Brave with my sister. I'd give it an 8/10 only because it breaks the mold of traditional princess movies that Disney has put out. Also, Pixar did an amazing job with cinemetography; expect them to win a lot of awards.

    Rebecca (1940)

    8/10

    This is the only Hitchcock film to win Best Picture and it was a gem, really enjoyable performances from Olivier and Joan Fontaine, and George Sanders played the cad as usual. I liked this movie a lot, it was about a woman being overwhelmed marrying up into a wealthy household and having the mystique of the deceased previous wife hanging over her every move, then things take a more familiar Hitchcock turn in the final act. Worth watching for anybody who can stand to watch movies that aren't in color or don't have constant explosions.

    Fight Club:

    9/10. Generally enjoyed the movie, but was a bit dissapointed with the conclusion of the story.

    Wrath of the Titans:

    4/10. Utterly boring story and characters, only decent aspects about this film are the actors and the CG on Kronnus.

    Snow White and the Hunstman 6/10

    SFX were good. The story was full of holes. The actress that played Snow White (the chick from Twilight) is awful. She has two emotions: "lobotomized" and "weird teeth." Charlize Theron was, of course, believable and the film's saving grace. The huntsman didn't show enough skin. I couldn't even tell if he had a big package. All in all, I won't be buying the Blu-Ray.

    Sherlock Holmes: 6.5/10.
    Enjoyable, humourous and filled with sparkling characters, but still underwhelming in a sense. The script is a little heavy on fast dialogue and overwhelming plot points, while it would be more effective with psychological elements. Brilliant performance by Robert Downey Jr.

    That was really funny, you are a great comedian.

    If you're serious then, i don't know what to say.
