Initial Response v.1

Movies I’ve recently seen for the first time……

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Thought it was as good as the first one. Shia LaBeouf was actually bearable in this one and Michael Douglas is perfect again bringing back Gordon Gekko to the big screen. There’s even a surprise cameo that works great.

The Invention of Lying

Ricky Gervais is hilarious, no other way to put it. The first scene we get with Jennifer Garner (Catch & Release) was hysterical. The second half of the movie kind of dragged though.

The Blind Side

It’s a feel good sports movie and it does just that. Sandra Bullock (The Proposal) is still a very attractive woman who always seems to find a way back into the spotlight when her star begins to fade. Great performances all around. The nominations all make sense now.

Robin Hood

Russell Crowe & Ridley Scott team up again to the point where I actually have to think to recall all the films they’ve done together. It was alright, nowhere near the quality of say Gladiator or American Gangster but gives us a different perspective of the legend we are all aware of. Actually hope they do a sequel.

Killers

Ashton Kutcher should only stick to playing idiots like in ‘That 70s Show’ & Dude, Where’s My Car? Horrible movie and Katherine Heigl (Under Siege 2) keeps playing the same character in everything recently.

Defiance

Good movie about jewish brothers who help their kinsmen during the Holocaust. Daniel Craig (Casino Royale) is at the top of his game in this film.

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

Funny movie from the guys behind Talladega Nights & Stepbrothers. A better film then the latter with a great cameo by Will Ferrell.

Imagine That

Eddie Murphy (Beverly Hills Cop) needs to return to his R-rated comedies immediately.
