Catching Up--The Lightning Round

So, I realize that I haven't been keeping up with my movie blogging. This is not, however, because I have given up my habit of watching movies. It's more just because I've been lazy. Yeah...I said it. Instead of going through the effort of writing a huge blog about every movie I've seen in the past little bit, I've decided to catch up with one sentence reviews for everything I remember seeing in the past month or so. Ready? Okay...(in the order in which I think of them, not in which I saw them...)

The Eye

Um...It was okay; though not as scary/good as I had hoped it would be.

Meet The Spartans

If you're interested in seeing it, you know what kind of humor it is; I laughed pretty hard at some stuff, though.

Be Kind, Rewind

I actually really liked this movie, which turned out to be more than a typical Jack Black comedy.

Fool's Gold

There isn't much that I don't love about a good romantic adventure starring Kate and Matthew...loved it in the theater, and bought the DVD.

Definitely, Maybe

This movie wasn't what I thought it was going to be, but I still liked it well enough...even Ryan Reynolds, who usually doesn't do much for me.

The Spiderwick Chronicles

This one was fun, and made me wish I could see the invisible world of Goblins and Fairies that are visible in the movie.

The Singles 2nd Ward

Nowhere near as good as the first one, which is sad.

Three Can Play That Game

Even further from being as good as the first one than The Singles 2nd Ward, which TOTALLY sucks.


It had some scary parts, but overall, just didn't do it for me.

National Treasure: Book of Secrets

I liked it, just as much as the first one...can't wait for number 3!

Kung Fu Panda

Just plain funny.

Get Smart

I've said before how much I love Steve Carell, and he certainly didn't let me down in this one, which had me laughing pretty much from beginning to end.

So...basically...that's all I can think of. If there were more, maybe I'll add them later, but hopefully I'll get back on track with actual, detailed, reviews in the near future...:)

Get Smart looks okay overall, Dwayne Johnson is classic... but Steve Carell seems to be veering more and more toward a slapstick-style humor

I think SC's more versatile than people give him credit for. The movie was an Ace, so I can't blame him for taking it...but I think he's an amazing actor and creates believable characters. Neither "Dan In Real Life," nor "The Office" are anything close to being slapstick. And I still cry every time I watch "Evan Almighty." I cry at a lot of things,'s kind of what I do. =)

Thanks for visiting again!

Good grief! I can't believe the sheer volume of movies you get to see!!! I was proud of myself getting out to Get Smart (which btw I LOVED - Steve Carrell was perfect in that role)... come to think of it the last movie I saw in a theater was Dan in Real Life... I see a (sad) trend...
