"Be mindful of your thoughts, Anakin. They betray you."
Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones is a worthy addition to the Star Wars saga. A lot more action than "The Phantom Menace", more great music by John Williams and we begin to see the seeds of the Republic's transformation into the Empire being planted.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) gets his chance to really shine, sort of combining Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) calm, calculating demeanor, with a sense…
"Psychos can't kill what they can't find."
Scream 3 delivers, with being one of the more fun installments in the series and it's heavy on comedy that delivers thrills to the film.
The story is set three years after "Scream 2" Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), who has gone into self-imposed isolation following the events of the previous two films is drawn to Hollywood, yet again she returns again to face the past and find out who is responsible for her…
"You're my favorite Martian."

"In order for there to be complete trust between thieves, there can be nothing personal."
Entrapment is about a couple of good looking thieves (high class of course), is beautiful from the moment we see the castle. Gin (Catherine Zeta-Jones) works for an insurance company, her "job" to capture mastermind thief Mac (Sean Connery). They combine knowledge to try and steal several billion dollars! Loaded with action, interesting teaching techniques from Mac. Entrapment is understandable, interesting and has a tear drop ending. Overall, it's a very good film just overlooked.
"She's good, she's very nice, but only one problem. She's not you."
Just Go with It is one of Adam Sandler's best films. The chemistry with Jennier Aniston is the best of all his leading ladies he had in his other films. Also stars Nicole Kidman as Jennifer Aniston's "frenemy" and Dave Matthews is superb as her husband. However the two kids that played Jennifer Aniston's kids stole the movie. I love Jennifer Aniston and my favorite scene is when she dances competing against Nicole Kidman. Overall, it's an entertaining, light, hilarious film set in a beautiful place, with a nice soundtrack too.
"All women are actresses, dear. I'm just clever enough to get paid for it."
Murder Mystery is an homage to all those murder mysteries we all love. Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston star as a long time married couple, who take a trip that ends up being an adventure, with twists and turns as the hairdresser mystery reading wife and police officer husband try to figure out who is the real murderer to prove their innocence to a French Inspector. The ending twists, requisite car chase scene is sexy and exciting. The final homage to Agatha Christie is nice too. Overall, it's a delightful film.
"Sometimes when you open up to people, you let the bad in with the good."
She's All That examines how young people can be paralyzed by peer pressure, parental expectations, the world's problems and having to grow up too fast while filling in for an absent parent. It's a reality check for each of us, no matter the popular athlete to the dorky artsy girl. It takes something to actually make us move rather than casually standing still, in the process of an unfeeling and egotistical bet, perhaps saw themselves for whom they really are and the reflection is not so pretty! Overall, amazing coming-of-age film.
"Principal by day, disco king by night!"
Prom Night represents all time classic horror/slasher filmmaking at its best. There's just something very special about the early 80s slasher films that will never truly be captured again. There are still some great modern horror films of today, however the early 80s and the whole decade of the slasher films is something that's just at the top of my viewing list and always will be. Overall, the fact that "Prom Night" had very little profanity really also put the film into a league of its own, OH and of course Jamie Lee Curtis, the Scream Queen.
"Don't call me babe!"
Barb Wire is based on the Marvel Comics character. Pamela Anderson did justice to the dystopian heroine. Saw this film when I was a kid. It's action packed, sexy, but overlooked. Pamela Anderson enjoyed what she was doing and really fit the role convincingly. She takes no bull and takes no sides. The other characters accompanying her pulled in the film together in the post-apocalyptic world. If you like to check out low budget style films. I say check this out, it doesn't have the "low budget" feel in the long run. Overall, Barb Wire is Pamela Anderson at her best.
"I just love naked women. It's a character flaw."
Striptease is such a entertaining film. I looked threw the stripping and seen a single mom fighting for her family. Don't get me wrong, Demi Moore's stripping is great and sexy. It will have you pulling for her hard as you travel with the plot. I love it for the story as well as the subject. Guys will love it for the obvious reason, but the ladies will love it for her cause, a mother pushed to do what she has to for her family. Overall, Striptease is a funny film that has a heartwarming story.
"Hello, ladies. I always was a sucker for a redhead."
Gone in Sixty Seconds is one of those few films need to be remade. The original is fun to watch. Great nostalgia associated with the original. Now, the remake takes it up a notch! Cool cars, great action, the plot is engaging, love the cast and well-directed. Nicolas Cage's commitment to this film is incredible! Love this film. You must watch the film with a good surround system because the sound is phenomenal! The chase at the end has you feeling like you are inside of the car. Overall, Gone in Sixty Seconds is incredible!
"If karate used defend honor, defend life, karate mean something. If karate used defend plastic metal trophy, karate no mean nothing."
The Karate Kid Part III is the unfunny teacher from the first film has turned into a sympathetic, but the new villain, Terry Silver is a load of fun. Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) have a more developed relationship and it's not just a generic hero's journey story. Overall, the ending made my heart melt because that would be the last time we see Daniel LaRusso hug Mr. Miyagi and it's a good way to end "The Karate Kid" trilogy.
