Alice in Wonderland

Amazing! Vivid colors, excellent storyline, and fantastic cinematography. Tim Burton really hit the nail on the head here. It's the perfect match of an already good storyline and Burton's eccentric style. This was one of the best movies I have seen. I was captivated the entire time. If you are looking for a new twist on the story and excellent movie then this is it. This is the must see movie of the year!

I give this 4.5/5 playing card soldiers.

Bounty Hunter

I was apprehensive about seeing this because I thought it might be one of those comedies where they trick you. You laugh at the hilarious preview, then as you see the movie you realize that the moments in the preview were the only funny ones in the movie. In this aspect I wasn't let down. There were a lot of laughs in the movie. What did let me down is the crudeness. Although it wasn't the entire movie, it was enough for me to notice and remember. I felt that they wanted a little more comedy in the movie and so they were a little lazy and got the crude jokes out. I feel if the writers would have left that out they would have had a fantastic movie on their hands. 

I give this 2.5/5 Ex-s.

Valentine's Day

When I first saw the preview and saw that there were 15+ "big name" actors, I thought the movie was going to be a huge flop. This is a movie that in order to remember that it's good, you only remember a few parts. At times there is just too much going on. Too many stories being told. With that being said there were some decent moments in the movie that are worth seeing. This movie has some laughs, and some heart wrenching moments, however it is forgettable. If you want to see a movie and there isn't a whole lot to see, then this might be a good choice.

I give this movie 2.5/5 overpaid actors.

When In Rome

Not being a fan of cheesy over the top "lovey-dovey" movies, I liked the way this was handled. Instead of making it a movie where no man would be interesting in watching, they made it enjoyable by all. The movie had enough laughs and guy moments mixed in with romance and love stories that the movie was like by both me and my wife. Did the actors deliver amazing performances? No. Was it the best script/plot ever? No. What it is, is a great date night movie. I would go see this again with my wife on a date. It had the perfect balance that made it a great movie for a dinner/movie date night.

I give this movie 3/5 unbroken vases.
