Director: Neil Burger
Starring: Bradley Cooper
Rating: 5 stars
Actually, this is the ONLY movie that I liked :) It's been a while since I personally ranked a movie "5"....Ok, short review...short review... Very clever movie but it's nothing heavy like those usual mind f*ck movies that we like :) This definitely puts Bradley C to A-List. He really came a long way from being Jennifer Garner's casual beau in Alias. Highly recommended. Definitely a 'must see'
Battle: Los Angeles
Director: Jonathan Liebesman
Starring: Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez and Bridget Moynahan
Rating: 3 stars
This has been dubbed as 'Cloverleaf part 2' and has received quite bad reviews. I haven't seen Cloverleaf but I do know that it took on the "real life camera" style ala Blairwitch Project...circa '99. So that itself say's lack of originality or maybe they're just covering their poor production design by shaking the camera much HAHAHA!! It's #2 here, just because I always like "underdogs-exceptional comradery" type of movies :P And also because Michelle R's badass here as usual. Btw, NeYo's in the movie too:P
Red Riding Hood
Director: Catherine Hardwicke
Starring: Amanda Seyfried
Rating: 3 stars
In terms of whether how much I liked or DISLIKED it, should be tied with Sucker Punch with '2 stars' rating but I decided to give it a 3 since I didn't figure out who was the wolf by the middle of the film (I usually get the bad guy correct within the few minutes of the film). Plus I'm seeing this "dark version" kind of film is such a trend now (Robin Hood and I heard they're doing Snow White soon). Some hate it but I think it's OK :) Not much acting for Amanda S. but she's pretty hawt so that's OK, I guess....

It's Inception teenybopper edition!! LOL. I do not want to explain why because that would be spoiler and I'm lazy. I researched whether this was a comic or a video game originally because it sure seems like trying hard to achieve that effect. LOL. Right now I'll be spilling shiz randomly...sorry if you can't follow. First I am really bothered by Baby Doll's heavy eye makeup. I mean, it's OK in the 'Fantasy World' but smokey eyes with dramatic lashes while at home?? Why is Vanessa Hudgen's name Blondie when she's a brunette?? I am kinda bothered how the girls were portrayed because they look pretty young to me....except for Sweet Pea...almost didn't recognize her in Limitless. But then again maybe it's just me because I'm pretty sure most of them are child actors that I may have seen in Disney or Nick before. Amber got the only normal name and Rocket got the coolest normal name :D
The Green Hornet
Director: Michael Gondry
Starring: Seth Rogen and Jay Chou
Rating: 1 stars
Just 1 star because I had high expectations for this flick and it turned out to be a big disappointment :( No chemistry between the lead actors. I know Seth R's funny so I'm wondering why he isn't in this film. And who the heck is Jay Chou?! This was played by Bruce Lee before...I mean I'm sure there are more famous Asian star out there. So I did a little research and found that this Jay Chou was the dude in Initial D live action..WHA?? What happened?!? He was cute there......
