Nice fun Disney movie where they're not afraid to poke fun at themselves. Recommended, B+.Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Tim Burton + Johnny Depp = Success
Tim Burton + Johnny Depp + Musical = Must see! Would be more than willing to see it again in the theater. Think I have my next Halloween costume already decided...A+Juno
Read the reviews? Believe them--this is a quirky, fresh little independent comedy that I enjoyed quite thoroughly. Good soundtrack, too. It rates an A+, as well.Wait for the cheap theater:
Not as good as the reviews make it out to be, but still has its share of lol moments. I rate it a C, perhaps a C+.Other Reviews
Beowulf, American Gangster, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
B, A, C, respectively. First was a enjoyable adaption of the classic work, though perhaps it would have been better either fully animated or done live-action. Second was a fine piece of moviemaking, and one I will definitely pick up on DVD (as I will the other recommended flicks above). Third was kinda lackluster but still enjoyable in its own right. Don't remember if I'd reviewed it yet or not, but Across the Universe
(A-) and Shoot 'Em Up
(B+) both also come recommended from me.Ones I still want to see:
The Mist, Awake, I Am Legend, The Golden Compass, The Great Debaters, Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem.
Just a bit behind. Next week'll be the week to catch up. First two of those are already gone from theaters, so we'll probably hit two or three of the remaining ones.
I'll probably get around to a real update sometime.
For now, though, I'm out!
