Casino Royale - 9/10

Not only the best Bond film, possibly ever, this movie raises the bar for all subsequent films of the genre. Clever plot mechanics, marvelous dialog, fine acting from the entire cast, pulse-pounding action sequences, stunning visual effects and stunts, and above all else, a revisioning of the style and cinematography that will ensure the vitality of the Bond franchise for years to come. Nearly perfect in every way.

Casino Royale - 6/10

Good, but not great. A couple of the scenes will take your breath away, but a great deal of the movie is cliched and formulaic --especially the on-the-sand dialogue between Bond and his love interest.

I liked it, but fell short of loving it.

Babel

9/10

Whether it was something in the air or something in the Coke I was drinking, I left the theatre the other night thinking Babel just might be the best movie I've ever seen. It deals with separate stories within the same movie, but the characters are interconnected in a way that makes you think about communication and how we all relate to each other. It's dark and dreary at times, but completely riveting.

Superman Returns

6/10

I got a few goosebumps hearing that familiar theme music and seeing Superman return, but other than that, it was kind of meh overall.

But how spookily like Christopher Reeve does Brandon Routh look?

(Wow, that was maybe the most poorly constructed sentence ever.)

My favorite part of Superman Returns was the theme music and hearing Marlon Brando again. That was amazing.

Like you said though...the rest was pretty "meh".

Okay, I did like Kevin Spacey. He was one of the best things in the movie.

Yeah. I loooooove Spacey. But he wasn't even half as good as Hackman in that role.

You cannot top Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, I agree.

But his Luthor was definitely different than his.

I think it would be like comparing Jack Nicholson as The Joker to whatever Heath Ledger does in The Dark Knight.

That's definitely true.

Oh and The Dark Knight.

I put the original Superman into my Netflix queue. It's been YEARS since I've seen it, and I don't remember much about it.

I still need to have my Superman: The Movie, Superman II: The Donner Cut, Superman Returns marathon.

III and IV never happened, you hear?

They're like Batnipple and Robin on crack.

"The Goonies" The best adventure movie ever.. A classic that does'nt seem to date. As a 29 year old woman you think that I'd be too old for this but no way. Goonies are good enough for me, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.
