Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

One of those movies that has me laughing almost the entire time, which doesn't happen very often. This will be a classic someday, and definitely re-watchable.

10/10

Batman Begins 9/10

So much better than all the others

I got it at the library and had to return it the next day but I started watching it too late. I was going to watch about 20 minutes and if it was worthwhile I would rent it at a later date. Two hours and 20 minutes later I finished watching it ~ it was compelling from start to finish. Christian Bale is fabulous as Batman and the supporting cast are equally great: Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson and Katie Holmes.

It's been on cable several times the last few weeks. I usually end up watching it as well. Bale as Superman =

I've watched it to, back-to-back with Burton's Batman on DVD.

I'm not sure which one's better yet.

Dirty Dancing

Hadn't seen it in about 5 years. Loved the music and the dancing, and loved laughing at the pure cheese factor in this movie. Patrick Swayze is pretty damn hot. Had an interesting discussion with my friend about different interpretations of what dirty dancing actually is, and about Jennifer Grey's nose job.

9/10

I've been on a movie binge for the past few weeks. A few that I've watched lately:

Sideways and Crash - both lived up to the hype, IMO. Sideways seemed like an intelligent, well-written chick flick, but told from the perspective of men, instead. And I found Crash to be really powerful, several intense scenes. It came in at just over two hours, but seemed really short to me, a sign that the movie is compelling and entertaining to me.

Must Love Dogs - I wasn't expecting much, just rented it for some Cusack-y goodness but was pleasantly surprised. GREAT dialogue, some genuinely funny scenes...but then in the last 15 or 20 minutes, it lapsed into stereotypical romantic comedy territory. Too bad, because it had such a promising beginning, but still worth a watch.

The Family Stone - Ugh. Can I have that hour and forty minutes back? Too sad to be a comedy, too cute and quirky to be a drama, this movie doesn't know what it is. The only redeeming feature of this movie is that it included a couple older songs that I love.

Wanda Sykes is the best part of this movie. She's actually funny. jlo brings nothing to the table at all. She's just there.

Runaway Jury - 6/10

I happened across it on cable the other night and was pleasantly surprised. Good performances, but it's not something I would've paid to have seen in a theatre.

Cars

I had great expectations from this movie...I am a big fan of Pixar.
However...this movie's story line was very predictable, even for a "kids" movie. Don't get me wrong, my kids loved it, but in comparison to all the other excellent movies they have created, this would be bottom of the barrel.

6/10

(The short before the movie was great)

I love Sideways, watched it again last night. crash on the other hand I really didn't like but I'm thinking I'll give it another chance.

I watched Spellbound last night, the documentary about the National Spelling Bee. I'm a big word geek, so of course I loved it. The movie introduces us to 8 kids from across the country who are headed to the national bee. They come from vastly different backgrounds and have different levels of parental involvement and support, but each one is an outsider in his or her own way.

There were two things I wish might've been different. First, keeping track of 8 kids for the whole movie was a bit much; I think narrowing that down to six would've given the filmmakers a little more space to develop each one's character a bit more. Second, I wish the movie would've looked into their lives after the bee; there was a bonus "where are they now?" thing on the DVD, but it jumped far ahead (they're all in college or their last year of high school now); I would've liked to have seen them in six months and see how the experience changed them.

Still, an enjoyable movie. 9/10

Dave Chappelle's Block Party

It was more music than I had expected, and less of Dave himself, but still very enjoyable. I loved the mere idea of throwing a block party and inviting random people from his home town in Ohio, and his interaction with everyone came across as very genuine. It all just added up to a feel-good movie in an odd way.

I'm not a big hip hop/R&B fan, but I was intrigued by some of the acts I hadn't heard of. I have a lot of admiration for the Roots, even if I've only liked one song of theirs that I've heard. Dug Kanye and the marching band, thought Jill Scott was really good and interesting, even if her genre isn't up my alley. Was also intrigued by Dead Prez, who I'd never heard of.

The more of Dave Chappelle I see, the more I like him.

I suck at rating movies ... can I skip that part of the post?

What's Love Got To Do With It- 10/10 without a doubt!

The true story of Tina Turner with how she started out with Ike Turner and went on her own. Truly one of the most powerful and heart wrenching movies I have ever watched. Never grow tired of watching this one.

Oh and I think "Crash" is a great movie it's another really powerful one
