I thought this movie was great! Loved it from beginning to end! Jake Gyllenhaal was easy on the eyes (not too mention he has that sexy six-pack abs in this film! What's not to love? lol) and Gemma Arterton was very pretty here and pretty good. Love her quick wit and feisty-ness here and her banter with Jake's Dastan here. He is witty and sarcastic himself, lol. They were very good together. The film kinda reminded me of The Mummy movies though, but I didn't mind. I love this type of action/adventure type of film especially when you're enjoying watching it on the edge of your seat and don't know what's going on and what's going to happen next. It's much more fun watching it, and this film was certainly was. I kept wondering what was going to happen next. I was so focused into it from beginning to end, lol. The action...plent…

Sex & The City 2 (2010)

I thought Sex & the City 2 was pretty good and funny. I loved and enjoyed watching it. Kim Cattrall's Samantha was very funny and one to see on this film. She was as well in the first movie and the TV series (on HBO). The first movie though was more funny, but this one was good and funny too.  The ladies were great too. They were funny and fun to watch especially Samantha and Charlotte. I loved the Midde East scenes. The Gay Wedding scenes with Carrie's gay friends who were getting married were hilarious especially Liza Minilli. singing and dancing to Beyonce's "Single Ladies: Put a Ring on it," lol.

Overall, S&TC2 was a fun, feel-good, funny, romantic-comedy film to watch with your girlfriends. It was pretty good. I loved and enjoyed watching it. The four ladies (Sarah Jessica Parker/…

Film Review: Robin Hood

Robin Hood (2010)

Starring: Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Matthew Macfadyen

Watch the trailer for Robin Hood [source:hollywoodstreams]

I thought Robin Hood was great with plenty of action, humor, and adventure to keep you going and watching. Though I used to love the Kevin CostnerRobin Hood version growing up, but this one is good too...a lil' different and more like a modern Gladiator, after all, Russell Crowe also starred on it and the same director, Ridley Scott directed this, so the comparison's natural. Besides, Gladiator was one of the best films and had won Russell Crowe and the film both Oscars. This film was good on its own. The story was set before the Kevin Costner version and was said to be a prequel. The story was well written. The cinematography and visual effects were equally great. Good direction by Ridley Scott (though Gladiator was still the best, in my opinion). Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett were both great as Robin and Maid Marian as well as Pride & …

Film Review: Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2 (2010)

starring: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow

Watch the trailer for Iron Man 2 [source: TrailerCommunity]
I thought Iron Man 2 was pretty good and as equally good as the first one. Robert Downey Jr, as usual, was great as billionaire Tony Stark as does Gwyneth Paltrow and even Scarlett Johannsen. Mickey Rourke, on the other hand, was badass as the villain especially when he used that lightning wire to try and kill Tony at a car race in Paris. That was an awesome scene! There were plenty of action, some funny lines/humor here and there, and the pacing was neither too fast nor too slow, in my viewing. It just keeps you entertain and will have you on the edge of your seat. Though I missed Terrence Howard, who was replaced by Don Cheadle in this sequel. DC was good here, but TH was the one I got used to watching for that character that DC is now playing. Other than that, this film was very good.

Overall, It was great and was worth watching. I loved and enjoyed it as much as…

Film Review: Alice in Wonderland

I thought this film was great! It was the first film I saw on iMax 3D!!! Loved it! It was fun to see this movie as I didn't know what it was about and what to expect. It had me wondering what was going to happen next. Yeah, I know...and admit that I've never seen or read the previous TV/Film adaptations of Alice in Wonderland nor read the books. I've only heard the title and that it was a popular children's book...so it was fun watching this film and knowing/hearing about it as I watch along. The cast were great especially the newcomer actress Mia Wasikowska, who played the title character, Alice. Johnny Depp was hilarious as "Mad Hatter", Anne Hathaway was good too and ghostly looking as the "White Queen", and Helena Bonham Carter was pretty good and funny as the villain "Red Queen&…

Film Review: The Bounty Hunter

The Bounty Hunter (2010)

starring: Jennifer Aniston, Gerald Butler

I thought this film was pretty good and funny. Lots of action, humor, sizzling on-screen chemistry between Jennifer Aniston and Gerald Butler. Not too mention, the nice banter between their characters as well. They sure have a pretty good on-screen chemistry that should've been translated off-screen too, lol. I loved and enjoyed this film despite its flaws. Gerald Butler's so handsome and so sexy especially in one scene where he was shirtless in his towel and Jen tazerd him, lol. I thought that scene was funny. The only thing that seemed to drag on was the time/length of this film. It seemed too long that it  was beginning to wane or that I was anxious for it to get to the ending. The ending's a lil' predictable (but not too predictable...if that makes any sense...), but I liked that they end up together... unlike Jen's other film,…

Film Review: Leap Year

I just saw this movie last month six months ago or so and I haven't had the chance to write my review for it till now, I know...shame on me...but I've been busy with so many things and other blogs to update, lol. I have seen about 7 more films in theaters after this...and have yet to review them (will do very soon)...I do finally have the time to start reviewing them starting with this film.

By the way, I'm doing my reviews (for 2010 films) a lil' different this time, this year. It won't be too spoilerish (or too long...well, a lil' long but still not too long...if that makes any sense, lol) as the previous reviews I've posted here last year.

So, here's my review (first review for 2010) of...
