In life you can hear a story over and over told by many different people, but until it is told with conviction and passion it probably won't make a difference in your life. Such is the case with Avatar. The core of the story has been told many times, but this time it was powerful. It was captivating. The movie slowly got you hooked and then you were anxious to see what would happen, rooting for them to pull through. The animation and intense detail were simple magnificent. James Cameron did a fantastic job of making this movie compelling and interesting. If you are not sure about this movie; as I was when I saw the preview. I can say that the preview does not do it justice in the least. Find someone you know that has seen it and chances are they loved it.

I give this movie 4.5/5 Na'vi.

Sherlock Holmes

Being a fan of the Sherlock Holmes saga I had some big expectations. Having Robert Downey, Jr. play Sherlock was a little "iffy" in my mind. I was worried that since Director, Guy Ritchie, wanted to bring the martial artist side of Sherlock out; that he would just play the same role as Ironman and it wouldn't meet my expectations. Downey knocked this out of the park. He was fantastic as Holmes. This movie was an all around thriller. The cinematography, the action, and the acting kept you hooked the entire time. You felt as if you were there alongside Holmes and Watson trying to figure out the cases. My wife and I were constantly leaning to each other; coming up with our own ideas of what would happen and who did what. This movie will keep you on the edge of your seat, keeps you guessing, and when its over you are craving more.

I give this movie 4.5/5 Detective Teams.

The Blind Side

In my life I have seen a lot of, what I call, "feel good" movies. These are the types of movies that usually make you feel good, but rarely do you talk or think much about it later. Rarely are movies inspirational. The Blind Side is one of those movies. This is a movie that makes you want to be a better person. They make you feel uplifted, not just good. Immediately you are captivated by the storyline and cheering for him to pull through. This is by far one of the best movies I have seen in my life. If you want to see a movie that will do more then merely keep you entertained for an hour and a half, one that is actually worth $10.50. Then this is the movie for you.

I give this movie 5/5 offensive tackles.
