Synopsis from official website: Inspired by the classic Universal film that launched a legacy of horror, The Wolfman brings the myth of a cursed man back to its iconic origins. Benicio Del Toro plays Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father, Anthony Hopkins, Talbot sets out to find his brother…and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Lawrence Talbot’s childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother’s fiancée, Gwen Conliffe (Emily Blunt), tracks him down to help him find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable blood lust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline (Hugo Weaving) has come to investigate. As he pieces together the gory puzzle, he hears of an ancient curse that turns the afflicted into werewolves when the moon is full. Now, if he has any chance at ending the slaughter and protecting the woman he has grown to love, Talbot must kill the vicious creature in the woods surrounding Blackmoor. But as he hunts for the nightmarish beast, a simple man with a torchered past will uncover a primal side to himself…one he never imagined existed.

What a good movie! Great special effects! This was a really awesome movie…the storyline was interesting and there were definitely parts that made you jump…but not really scary…it had a little bit of romance too…which you need for every movie…

There was only one thin that was not so good about it….the gore…I mean there was blood and guts everywhere…so much of it…ewgh…nasty…it just makes me sooo squemish…ewww…but other than all the blood it was a very well done movie…also, at the end i was kinda hoping for a happy ending…i shoulda known better though cause it’s a “horror” movie…and i guess they can’t have happyendings…but you hope for one…

I definitely say it is a Must See.

a Romantic Comedy     91 Minutes       PG-13

This movie was cute….It was definitely very predictable but it was light-hearted and funny…my favorite part about this movie was definitely Josh Duhamel…i mean he is pretty gosh darn FINE looking! I would recommend that if you want to see this movie, it’s not worth going to theaters…just see it at home…watch when your feeling down (as long as it’s not because of love problems)…

The thing about this movie that bugged me is that the guy who plays Napoleon Dynamite was in it…he’s the magician who falls for Beth…I really don’t like him…he annoys me a lot…and I just didn’t like that he was in it…his voice is sooo annoying…he just bugs me…an he ruined all the parts of the movie he was in for me…

But…other than that…it was really cute and romantic…with a cheesy happy ending…just what you want in a romantic comedy…

I definitely say it is a Watch at Home

a Romantic Comedy     125 Minutes       PG-13      

February 27,2010 – Arclight Cinemas 2:25 pm

     An all-star cast…literally…that’s all the cast consisted of…well known stars…the last time I went to see such a great ensemble movie it was horrible (some of you might remember He’s Just Not that Into: Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Bradley Cooper, Ginnifer Goodwin, Scarlett Johansson, Kevin Connolly, Justin Long)…so i was really hoping that this wasn’t a repeat of that…plus it featured Taylor Lautner (something you should know, I’m a Twihard…I know…just another twilight obsessed teenage fan girl)…who I have to admit I am quite taken with (aka I ❤ Taylor Lautner)…

     Turns out it was actually really good…I only have one complaint…Eric Dane and Bradley Copper gay for each other…its just sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo so so WRONG and deeply disturbing…they are both way to hot to be gay…I am so glad they didn’t go as far as to have them kiss…I would have had to leave the theater…and i would have been scarred for LIFE! I mean…really…they just had to do that…but other than Eric and Bradley gay for each other it was a very good movie…funny…really funny…

     And I love how all the stories were interwined and everyone was connected…it was very cute…and all the secret jokes that they threw in for those who know the actors…like the Taylor Lautner not wanting to take his shirt off in public (that one made me laugh…and sad 😦 i was hoping to see those hot abs…but alas…no can do apparently) and then if you watched in the end credits they had Julia Roberts in the limo and as they’re driving down Rodeo Dr. the driver asks her if she had ever shopped here and she says: “Once…and it was a big mistake, huge…HUGE!” I laughed so hard…that was just soooo funny! If you’ve seen Pretty Woman you know why that is so funny…haha

I definitely say it is a MUST SEE

a Dramatic Mystery/Thriller       138 minutes       R

February 19, 2010 – Edwards Camarill0 12 and IMAX  7:10 pm

Before I saw this movie I read the book…which is normally a HUGE mistake because the movies never live up to the books…however, with Shutter Island I was delightfully suprised…they stayed soooooo true to the book…the most true I’ve ever seen a movie be to it’s book…they may have left out maybe two unimportant things and added a few minor ones…

THIS MOVIE ROCKED!!! It was amazing! It was suspenseful and kept you guessing the whole time…with an awesome twist ending that you will never see coming in a million years! This movie (and the book before it) has driven me crazy with trying to figure out the twist ending! It was not really scary as I had expected, though there were a few parts that made me jump. Everything about this movie says blockbuster hit…and I definitely didn’t mind watching Leo on a screen for 2:30 hrs…hehe

I definately say it is a Must See!

a Fantasy Adventure       118 minutes       PG   

February 14, 2010 – Century Stadium 16 7:00 pm

Considering that Chris Columbus also directed some of the Harry Potter movies….I was expecting him to do a pretty good job at staying true to these books…of course I read the whole series of books before I went to see the movie…and they did an okay job…I mean ignore the books it was a fantabulous movie…but they didn’t stay very true to the books…but they did an okay job…it translated as well as it could have I supose…but overall it was a very good movie….

It was funny…had that hint of romance…a cute leading guy (who is a few months older than me 😀 )…I am very much soooo looking forward to the rest of the series coming out also….hopefully they make the rest into movies…if they don’t i will be very disappointed…I liked the cast very much…they did a good job casting…though Annabeth was supposed to have curly blonde hair…and Grover definitely wasn’t black…but I liked the way the actors portrayed them…I especially like that they casted Kevin McKidd as Poseidon…I really like Kevin McKidd…and also how they casted Sean Bean as Zeus…they did a fantabulous job with the casting of the gods…I have zero complaints there…and Percy…I really like the guy they cast as Percy…he was definitely soft on the eyes 😉

I definitely say it is a Watch at Home
