Movie Review Time!

Its been awhile since i've done a movie update....I don't want you to think that hubs and i have stopped going to movies......quite the contrary..... Not much else to do when you live in an apartment......And as you can see i finished the first 'draft' of the Butterfly picture. I will scan this in as is then i'm determined to 'fiddle' with it some more. I'm going to try paint on those squiggly things at the bottom that i absolute hate. And if worse comes to worse i will cut off the bottom following around the bottom edge of the flowers giving it an uneven edge if you know what i mean? Now back to the movies!
........Contagion.........I went to see this one by myself.......and even though i thought it was good....i didn't think it was great.....it felt more like a made for TV movie if you get my drift......
........Apollo 18..........Again i went to go see this movie by myself.......hubby has a good radar for bad movies......me? not so much.......i always have high hopes......this is one of those shakey camera type movies like Blair Witch and i really hate those.I thought this movie was an interesting concept of why we never went back to the moon.......did you know that theres a conspiracy theory that we never actually ever went to the moon that it was all a hoax?? Funny i'm so naive i never even thought of that. Do you think we landed on the moon or was it a hoax. If a hoax why?? To inspire a country in need of inspiration?? But really this movie is about why we never went back......its a little cheesy........rent it if you must
.........Abduction..........And again another movie i went by myself...........and again hubs was right....I WANTED to like this movie. It has Taylor Lautner in it from the Twilight series and i really wanted to like it..........it sucked ........big time.......the acting was horrible the dialog stilted ...uuughhhh.....really don't even rent it........The action scenes were good though but not enough of them to carry the movie.
...........Dream House..........Now this one i dragged hubby to........he ended up not crazy about it but it was okay and i have to agree with him although i think i liked it a little better than him. He tends to be an all action guy , me i can be happy with a good story. The acting was all good here just really not enough scary which was kind of what i was expecting. But with three good well known actors in it, it was a pretty good film. Definitely rent it and even at the movies i didn't feel like i wasted my money so give it a shot!
..............Real Steel..............Now this baby was the Real Deal........Great movie!.......And from what you can tell the best we've seen in a long time.......Great story, good acting, good special effects. Definitely worth your money and your time. Disney has a good one here.
Well thats it! The Three Musketeers comes out this weekend. Not sure if we will go. We are kind of Three Musketeered out. How many times can you remake a movie??? However the girl that plays in the Resident Evil movies....whats her name??? Milla Jovavich??? Not sure how to spell it any way she is in it and that might be interesting.....We are fans of hers from way back when she played in The Fifth Element. Paranormal 3??? As much as i like scary movies i'm really not a fan of this series.....The first one was so, so and the second one was awful so i'm not gonna spend my money on the third..........Have a great weekend! Catch a movie! Hugs! deb

You are a movie machine!! I went to see The Debt and LOVED it. Moneyball was just ok. I didn't really get it. Oh well. Brad was easy on the eyes.

Love your movie reviews, as always!

Your moth - gorgeouser and gorgeouser.

We only see movies when they come on satellite these days. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack to find a good one.

We watch more and more classics. Over ... and over ... and over ... lol
