Latest Movie Review
Better Than "The Da Vinci Code"
I enjoyed “Angels & Demons” more than “The Da Vinci Code” for several reasons. First is Ron Howard’s direction: In its prequel (even though, chronologically, “Angels & Demons” happened before “The Da Vinci Code” so it depends on how one looks at it), I felt that Howard was all over the place and missed some crucial information from Dan Brown’s novel. That is why the ending was not as powerful as it should have been. To me, the facinating locales were at the foreground instead of the story. It was so concerned with being so fast-paced that it almost sacrificed its emotions and the details that made the book such a page-turner. In here, the director has more focus and confidence when it comes to tackling certain scenes …

I enjoyed your mummy review. I was quite surprised with it like they pulled off something special. I kept waiting for it to fall apart, but I really enjoyed myself through the whole thing.

Cool, thanks for the help. I haven't read the books either, but I also didn't realize how much for kids it was going to be when I watched it. I also ended up hating that little girl's character and was frustrated that she had the "skill of dagger" and the only chance she had to use it she fell asleep. haha. I will rent it and let you know my thoughts.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Review comment
Alright, I absolutely hated this movie when I saw it, but in general I like this type of movies.The reason I didn't like this one was the poor acting of the kids, the story wasn't put together correctly (it seemed like it was only a few days but it was months), and a few scenes where I just rolled my eyes because it enhanced the movie so little they should have left it out. With that said, is there a chance I may like the sequel?

It's a horribly flawed scale and most of me wants to just use my gut sentiments, but it is somewhat fascinating to see how things turn out. I honestly enjoyed Equilibrium more than 1/4 stars. Silly, huh?
