When it comes down to it, blogging. Is it really worth it. I’ve been giving you guy’s week after week upcoming movies, Award ceremonies, and even a review. So when it comes down to it: is Blogging actually helpful, or is it a worthless outlet. Just a week ago a read to different bloggers who talked about how much blogging as helped..or hurt the internet. Dustin Rushkoff believed that “your success will be directly dependent on your ability to create excuses for people to talk to one another. For the real measure of content’s quality is its ability to serve as a medium” while Neal Talbot believed that these “litter boxes” aka blogs are pretty much useless and are just outlets for people to whine and complain.
He also said that “Now that ordinary people are mimicking the crap of the talented, the uselessness of weblogs is becoming even more apparent”. To a degree he is right, everyone believes that they could be basically bad mouth each other and call it a “blog Post”. I have seen some different types of blogs, vlog’s and web post were people try to act “intelligent” yet aren’t.
Both of these guys had a LOT of things different but the one that was most important had to have been substance. Blogs need substance, ideas, opinions, etc. I believe anyone can start a job: but only an imaginative mind can keep the substance going for weeks on end. A blog I was following this whole time, themovieblog.com definitely has substance. I love looking up the site everyday to find some interesting movie news or trailer releases. Also how well they balance movie reviews reminds me that they aren’t playing favorites but actually rating what a film deserves. And of course the engine behind the site? Blogger’s. Even though blogging is a relatively new concept it is spreading like wild fire.
My thoughts? Blogs are actually helpful. Ever since I started doing these post of movie’s I felt pretty good giving others the news and what’s going on in the world. I was always an outgoing person anyways but I’m nervous of talking to a crowd. For the past few weeks I actually enjoyed looking up the movie’s ESPECIALLY the awards. Blogging has given me an outside persona from the norm. So the question is can I provide substance to the masses? And if you’re a true blogger. The answer is a definite yes. I would like to thank you guys for contributing to my post each week, after this post I will be on a break. A return? Perhaps. But then again, smash hit movies always have a sequel.

What’s your favorite movie? Mines have to be Jurassic Park. What makes it so entertaining for me is was how the archeologist and the rest of the group barely escaped the raptors and got off the island just in time. To many people that would be considered a cliché because the hero always escapes at the last minute and recently I read through another bloggers post and he felt the same. John Campea over at themovieblog.com created a post about 4 years ago stating the “8 Thing I’m Sick of Seeing in Movie’s”.
He felt that Directors have become to accustom to trends and Hollywood endings. I for one, believe that a cliché every once and while can be helpful for an audience. We deal with so much trash in real life I don’t think we need to be reminded in the movie’s of if. Here are a few examples of Campea’s cliché’s.
Campea’s first cliché: The current boyfriend/husband of the main character’s would be love interest is a total jerk.
His grip was that in most cases be an insensitive guy who yells and basically treats his girlfriend horrible. John says that 9 times out of ten the girl you’re into will most likely stay with that guy for the reasons of peer pressure. True statement, but as I stated earlier sometimes we need to be reminded that an average guy does have the opportunity to score with a popular girl. In life, how many times does the guy actually get the hottest girl in school, or in the city? Barely? I’ve been through a few of those moments growing up, and I believe the fact that if one guy somewhere can actually become the girl’s love interest, despite the odds, I think that would be a win to all guys. Whether it be a movie or not.
Next cliché: A fight breaks out in a bar/restaurant, EVERYONE will jump in.
He described that if at anytime a bar fight would erupt then for some reason everyone would then join in. John stated that he been through a few bars and seen his fair share of them. But anytime a fight does break out, not only do people not join the fight, but the bouncer/security removes both parties immediately. In my belief the reason why bar fight Cliché is still around because of how “over the top” it really is. In real life we will probably never see an out of control bar fight, but every once and awhile, the audience needs excitement, and a broken glass bottle to the head usually does the trick.
Cliché’s at times can be an eye-roller especially with drama’s or action flicks. But to me, in real life, The last thing I want to do is be remembered that life is mostly one-sided and of course, the “bad guy” or always wins. For instance, as a kid growing up I had problems getting along with kids in elementary school. I’m ok with making friends, but the fact of them being true friends was the problem. I remember sometimes watching movies such as Rugrats and Space Jam because in those films, you had true buddies. That’s what I like about movies, the fact that I can watch a storyline and say: “wow maybe it is possible”. Day-to-Day I have to be reminded of life’s unfortunate moments. In the past I had problems with relationships, finding a job for tuition, making sure me and my mother are living comfortably and in the future it will happen, that’s life. But what keeps me separated from serenity and going crazy, is the fact that I can watch a movie wheather it be forty-five minutes or even an hour, and feel free. Don’t need to be reminded about, work, or making sure grades are high enough for scholarship. When I’m in the movie, all that matters to me is: What will happen next?
I understood where John was coming from, there things we all get sick of seeing in movies. There are moments were have to roll my eyes over the fact of obvious clichés. Things like “the idiot friend bias” where for some reason the best friend of the main character is either a jokester or completely unneeded. Even the cliché at the end of romantic movies the guy looks straight into the girls eyes, stares for a minute and just say “I love You”. So believe me I understand where Campea is coming from. I’m not against the guy or anything, but I personally felt that there are some cliché’s that can have us leaving the theater feeling positive. Even though we grow more hardened to what the world throws at us, I believe every now and then it’s good to see the underdog win.
To throw a bone for anyone who feels the hate for cliche's here is a very funny trailer for a
Hey there people out their in Movie Land this is Earl and This will be a start of my final two post for a while. If you look at the list of my post you will find a 2nd post. These two were special topics that I have been thinking about as of lately. In the first part I will talk about how exactly movies and I have a bond, since early beginnings.
I have a personal question for you guys. What was one of the first films you seen growing up that you were so fascinated with growing up? I mean the one where you wanted to always watch it over and over again. For me Space Jam was my partner in crime. Why you might ask? .When I was a kid I was an only child so most times it would be just my mother and I. Fortunately I had some buddies in my neighborhood to keep me company after school. But as most of you know that couldn’t do the trick always, not that they weren’t good friends, but sometimes that even got old. But the one thing I know could..movies .To be honest the movie that probably has had the biggest impact growing up, and still a favorite, is probably Space Jam. It had a bit of real life and animation mixed into one movie and had the story was centered around real life professional basketball player Michael Jordan coming out of retirement to help save the world by competing against a group of aliens in a game of 5-on-5 basketball. The movie had a little of everything; funny storyline, Warner Brothers cartoon characters and of course superstars like Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan.
What made it an inspirational movie to me was how reminded me that it is possible achieving the milestones that athletes like M.J if a kid from Chicago can make a way to a professional career , then any of us can too. I remember when I first saw it for the first time. No one could even speak let alone come between me and the storyline. I was always so tuned into the movie until puberty and life began rearing its head and soon the movie became just a flashback. See I loved how whenever Im feeling emotionally down, or disappointed at something I can just pop in the tape and fall back into the world of Loony Toons. Whether it be Bug’s Bunny trying to be the mediator, Daffy; the wanna-be hero, or Jordan, their saving grace,
I feel like anytime I need help, their there. I see the movie Awhile back (during summer) as I was going through things for college I ran into a few old memorabilia and of course “Space Jam”. I had downtime to watch it and automatically fell back into my youth. Watching it all over again I began to reflect over favorite scenes. Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny running through M.J.’s house, and when they had the big basketball game at the end scenes brought back the fun memories of movies and growing up.
This was one of the reasons I made a blog about movies: reminding us the joys and thrill of a great film whether it be Star Wars or The Rugrats as individuals seem to have a connection to old time greats. Actually movies at a young age had such a hold on me I felt maybe it was possible to become something or someone so important that the world would one day need my help. In a way, Space Jam is connected to my past career choices (archeologist, scientist, firefighter) and probably why I made a choice to become a teacher. Space Jam to me is like an old buddy I haven’t seen in ages, even though you’re not around that buddy, you still have a connection. Space Jam is just that, my connection to a calmer world. So what are some of your “Personal Buddies”
It's been a minute since my last post due to some sickness but it's good, it's all good. The Oscar's were yesturday and to tell you the truth.. It dragged on for me. I don't know if it were the inside jokes Steve Martin and Alex Bladwin or the mini song and dance they did for about 5 minutes. Either way I was getting a little antsy on Best movie, Actor,Actress etc. So at the end of the post I will leave you a link to the nights winners and stuff if anyone was interested.
Alright highlight #1 Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz won the award for his nazi general (don't quote me on that) in the movie Inglorious Bastards. Didn't see it, the commercials were basically shoved in my face for the whole month before it came out. I here it was actually a good film so ill check it out on DVD. What made this a highlight was not just him winning but the acceptance speech was very emotional. You could tell he was honored to he be introduced in the movie let alone nominated for his part. So he gets highlight #1 for emotion.
Award Highlight #2: Best Supporting Actress: Monique. Dispite the fact this movie will go straight to her ego I will say this: good job. You barely see comedians even get into serious roles due to the stereocast of the genre, and she was nominated for her first serious role? wow. you don't see stuff like that happen very often espically at the Academy Awards.
Award Highlight #3. Best Actor: Jeff Bridges.. To tell you the truth, I wanted The Hurt Locker's Jeremy Renner win this award because he's been in hollywood for like 20 years? and this is his first nomination? wtf . Then I started thinking: Jeff Bridges, old actor, freaking country singer, and did I say old?. Idk not saying he didn't do a good job but, Im on the fence about this one
Award Highlight #4. Best Director: Kathryn Bigelow.. wow I actually spelled it right. This had to have been an emotional moment due to the fact of her being the first women director to win an oscar for directing. This was probably one of the major highlights of the night. James Cameron's response? he mouthed the words "yes. yes" happy for the fact his ex. She acted like she stole something you know bouncing around, sweating, nervous and crap. I guess she didn't think it would happen?
And the #5 and thee highlight of the night Best Movie:The Hurt Locker... I said it would win about 3 blog post ago and it actually happened. I'm glad they won, they are considered a independent film, and it was first in Europe and Germany before the US. I'm happy for their success and hope that a studio will pick up the film. And that they stop getting sued.
Alight that about sums the night. if you want to see the list of winners view it here
What’s going on out their in movie land people it’s Earl and yea it’s another week of movie talk. So this past weekend we had the premiere of Tim Burton’s adaption of Alice in Wonderland and the Shutter Island starring Leonardo DiCaprio. I want to see Alice in Wonderland I mean the story it self is legendary.. Also Shutter Island is grabbing my attention as well; I’m kinda of playing it close to the collar. I probably will wait for some reviews first.
This past week we finally get a chance to see a preview of the movie KickAss which will probably be one of the funniest movies coming out this year. The story is about a outcast teenage kid who begins to dress up as superhero and basically gets jumped and beat up every chance he gets. Fortunately, it was not in vain as it gives others the hope to be super in their own way. This movie is basically the biggest degenerate movie of the new century, but it will most likely be dethroned eventually. The movie is considered to be so bad that the trailers are all Redband (which means only for Mature Audience) u can find them on YouTube but fair warning: you will hear a lot of f-bombs, sex jokes, and stuff.
Also everybody’s favorite movie Avatar will actually have a prequel novel..Yes I said it a prequel novel. James Cameron said he would be interested in developing a book explaining the background story of Pandora and it’s inhabits. It’s a interesting idea, saves money for doing a film and also creates a script for when he eventually does the prequel so it’s a double feature? My question is: will people actually be it? Not saying books are bad, but in the age of technology most people wouldn’t. But depending on the diehards of the movie it could still sell.
Disney….Disney actually think they understand high schoolers because they are making a movie called Prom Yes they are making a PG rated movie about the prom. I guess we will see some show tunes and completely b.s. acting as if high school can be wrapped up in just a day…Anyway that’s some of the things I thought were interesting. Ok PEACEZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
What’s going on out there in Movieland people it’s Earl, and were going to discus another week in movies today. Other than “Bioshock 2” coming out this past week (oh yeaaa) we had some pretty good new premiere’s such as “Percy Jackson & the Olympians the Lightning Thief”, The “”Wolfman, and “Valentine’s Day”. So far so good for movie premieres this month. I’m starting to see more interesting movies so I guess the new movie season is pretty much here. Well critics reviewed each film and I was surprised to hear all 3 get some form of mix reviews. I really wasn’t rushing to see “Percy Jackson” because it looked liked a cheesy over priced CGI movie (Avatar haters back off). The “Wolfman” was viewed as a good film but not a good storyline. I wanted to see it but depending on weather conditions. “Valentine’s Day”….well I said what I felt about the “thing” last week but the critics of LA Times, and Chicago Sun thought it was worse . But one critic shouldn’t dictate what is good not good.” Dear John” is still 1# in the box office this weekend, which is pretty good because people do need some love stories especially in the crisis our country is in.
Big news for the week had to have been trailers. First well begin with a childhood favorite of everyone and their auntie, “Toy Story 3”. If you any one has yet to see the 1st trailer you can view it here, but earlier this week a 2nd trailer was released and it gave us a little more insight of the film. I was actually a little “geeked” (hype) when I saw the trailer just because it’s been so long since I’ve seen the 1st one. I actually don’t remember seeing the second.
2nd big news was over the growing anticipation is about the movie of the other “Avatar”, you know the nick show? Yea, so the movie “The Last Airbender” had a trailer during the Superbowl(I was going to make a joke but ill leave it alone) which I missed but I recently seen both trailers and was actually surprised how interesting M. Night Shyamalan is taking the story to the silver screen. So this is the stuff I thought was cool ill see you next week.
What’s going on out there in movie land people it’s Earl today well talk about John Travolta and John Travolta’s shiny head stars in “From Paris With Love”, and probably what each of your girlfriends will see everyday and night for a month straight “Dear John” and a little chit chat about the Oscar Nominee’s. Alright enough wasting time let’s get down and dirty.Yea I said it.
Lately the buzz has been about the film “From Paris with Love” has been, in my opinion hyped up due to John Travolta’s new style. At first, I was on the fence with this movie. You know since Travolta did hairspray all I can remember is how closely he resembled a woman, but looking at it from now I guess it wasn’t too bad playing a silly part. It will probably sell like crazy but do I see it breaking through to beat Avatar? Not really
Dear John”…I’m sick of seeing chicks on Facebook using quotes from the movie as their status updates. The story centers around a soldier who is on leave and falls in love with a college girl. Soon however makes the choice instead of returning home to see her, he serves another term in the wake of September 11th. The story is supposed to show how both partners become affected by the distance and time they’re apart. Well, I would recommend this to anyone who trying to impress someone, “make-up” with someone, or just into love stories. Boys if you’re in a relationship get use to the fact this movie will be shoved in your face for the next 3 weeks.
Finally, this past week the Oscar.com released it’s nominee’s and of course their were some surprises including one of the biggest, Zoe Saldana the other main character who was the chick in “Avatar” got snubbed . Many people were disappointed because Zoe. Tell you the truth, not really surprising. I figure they looked at “Avatar” as an overused storyline since a lot people compare it to Pocahontas. What’s more interesting is how much “The Hurt Locker” is getting recognition and guess who is competing with created the film. James Cameron’s Ex-wife! Yeaaa I know crazy right? So this year it’s going be a showdown between James Cameron and ex Mrs. Cameron. Hostility? Hope so, probably not. Only Time will tell.
Alright, people that’s it for this week until next time. also for those of you who don't know what the hurt locker is about here is one trailer The Hurt Locker Trailer
Hey out there in Movie Land what’s going on it’s your favorite critic Earl giving you the latest news on movies coming out within the following months. Such as the timely classic with a dark twist: “Alice in Wonderland”. The movie that we have seen previews for since Transformers 2, starring Leonardo Dicaprio, “Shutter Island”, and the movie that has so many big celebrities in one storyline that it might crash, “Valentine’s Day”. Here is a link to what movies have made the most in the box office this weekend from boxofficemojo.com. With no surprise “Avatar” still dominated in numbers but with January and February considered the “slowest” months for premiere movies it makes sense that people are still viewing it. I’m happy Mel Gibson’s movie “Edge of Darkness” did good, they said it’s been 7 ½ years since his last film. I felt like I just seen the dude in the theatre just a few months ago. Well I guess the movie “Signs” was the last movie? Not too sure but whatever.
Ok so by now most of you guys/girls have seen the “Alice in Wonderland” commercials and even for the most part seeing pictures Johnny Depp playing as The Mad Hatter (not hater for some reason people think its hater). So of course this is a Tim Burton Film so expect that whole dark and demented look. I saw the 3D trailer in the trailers for the movie “Avatar” and I think this version will do great. I have yet to even see the original Alice in Wonderland so I don’t know the story line, but if Tim Burton is doing it then most likely it will make millions in the first weekend so well see. I actually might see it also.
“Shutter Island”… apparently is finally coming out on February 19, 2010 to tell you the truth I thought this came out a year ago due to so many freaking previews since Transformers 2! I mean really a movie needs a year and ½ preparations. Anyway I was interested in the storyline and Leonardo Dicaprio is a good actor but my problem is why he is type casted all the time. Other than movie “The Departed” I feel they have him do the 1800 century types of movies. Well see how this one turns out.
Finally, we have the movie that can considerably be called, the most of A and B list actors in one movie of the year, “Valentine’s Day”. Let me just say this, they have way too many actors and actress on the same project. I mean Julie Roberts, Jessica Alba, Jenifer Gardener and Jamie Foxx? The scary part is that’s just half of them. All I’m saying is I’m not too optimistic on this film, hopefully the cast members are friends and made it work cause movies like these can either go one way or another. Then “Ocean’s Eleven” pulled it off perfectly so only time will tell. Will I see? I’ll let you decide on that. So these are the big movies coming out in February, if you want to see the trailer for each movie it will be at the bottom of this post.
I put this up early due to the fact it's the only time I would have a chance to type all this out cause monday's are hectic..so yea..
Hey people I finally have had a chance to go see this majorly hyped movie that so many people have been talking about for months (and some years). So this is my review of James Cameron’s “ Avatar”. James Cameron is a dinosaur in the world of movies with such films like “The Terminator” films, “True Lies” and of course “Titanic” and with Avatar he broke through another barrier. He sets the tone with movie’s and storylines in a way that new and old directors always follow steps behind. I was a weary about doing this review because I wanted to talk about the storyline, special effects and the underline message that sends a message to basically everyone. So I will try to make this review as spoiler free as possible but also give a detailed one as well.
The movie itself starts out giving the audience a background story on the main character Jake Sully played by Sam Worthington. It jumps right into the world of Pandora where a rift between the human’s from Earth of course and the natives of the world, The Na’vi over the land’s natural resources that leads to inevitable fallout between both sides. The story is set in a futuristic time period, which I think was 2154, where the Earth is overflowing in population. The visual effects begin to make its mark in the movie within the first 3 minutes showing the pure magical and scared look of Pandora. The main character begins entering the planet with a one- track mind thinking of how the whole “situation” between them and us is. Soon Jack Sully begins to realize the importance of the land to the Na’vi and his whole mentality of life begins to slowly but surely change. This movie had the tradition love story with a twist of Irony displayed in crazy CGI effects.
Now the film did receive mixed review many saying it was very anti-military, and it has also created a little religious debate over religion and way of life. Most of it was people being acting radical and completely bias so it was quickly debunked.
If you have yet to see this movie then GOOO to the theatre as soon as possible because this is the type of film that needs to be viewed in theatre’s before DVD/premium channels. For the first time in a while I’m willing to spend money to view this movie all over again especially in 3-D IMAX. This is not a movie to see in a normal theatre at least view it in a 3-D screen or IMAX I can not stress this enough., but to understand the message, the underline truth, you must be an open minded individual. If you view the world, life and other cultures in only way of thinking, then you won’t appreciate this movie for what it really is.
SO all in all I’ll give James Cameron'a "Avatar" an unsurprising 5 out of 5.
If you’re interested in the Avatar's mix reactions and reviews links are below.
The Golden Globe Awards has passed us by and it was ALOT to take in. I kinda wanted to wait a little before posting this blog because I wanted to have everything together.
Blog topics: “Up In The Air was in EVERY category possible, when Tobey Maguire looked pissed the F**k off he didn’t when “Best Actor of the Year” award and most the actors/actoress talked over the limit where they played “the music”.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE Mo'Nique, Precious
This was the opener for the show with the comedian Mo’Nique winning the award for supporting actress in the movie Precious. Mo’Nique delivered a heartwarming speech telling people that it’s possible reaching this level (award show speaking) and how she told her friend’s years ago it would have eventually happened. This was an emotionally beginning to another wise long night of emotional speeches. I have a feeling that Mo’Nique will be ego tripping for the next few months
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds
To tell you the truth I ended up distracted during parts of the show soooooo I did not catch the whole speech but Inglorious Basterds was a pretty good movie
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM Up Their really wasn’t much to talk about with this one other then the fact “UP” c.g.i looked amazing and probably was a good light movie to see. But, since I didn’t feel like it or have the money I passed it up…it will be on T.V. in the next year or so anyway.
BEST MOTION PICTURE, COMEDY OR MUSICAL The Hangover
This was probably one of the biggest surprises to win a G.G. especially with the most talked about musical movie Nine in the category. The whole pack (minus the bigger guy who walked around naked in the movie in every scene) was their including Mike Tyson. I was at first like wtf than really thought about it and I felt it was a pretty good call. The Hangover was a funny movie and it helped the new upcoming actors like Bradley Cooper and Ken Jeong. It was also nice to see Tyson get back on his feet with his kid and career. Let’s see what he does with an award under his belt.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR AND ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE, COMEDY OR MUSICAL Robert Downey Jr., Sherlock Holme Meryl Streep, Julie and Julia
I think I mentioned this back in my last post but I will restate it, Robert Downey Jr. is doing a good job coming back from the drugs and drinking problems. He said this was his 12th career reboot and it looks like its going good. But you never know. Meryl Streep took the best actress which doesn’t surprise me because she’s considered a dinosaur in the movie’s..make the jokes
BEST MOTION PICTURE, DRAMA Avatar
This was not at all a surprise due to the amount of hype Avatar got within the last month and a half. James Cameron accepted the award and began to talk about how the last 4 years was spent making the film and I have yet still seen it. If it’s like Titanic I hope to god it’s not a 3 movie with about 40 minutes of action cause in 3D. Finally.. Dada dada dada it’s the BEST PERFORMACE IN A MOVIE or drama OF THE YEAR. WOOOOOOOO yea I’m so hyped….I’m joking
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR/ ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE, DRAMA Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart
Sandra Bullock in my opinion deserved the best actress award due to the fact of how inspirational The Blind Side was. She actually had a nice year especially with The Proposal coming out earlier this year. Jeff Bridges won the best Actor in a movie my reaction? I was like what the? But the one person who look more lost was Tobey McGuire aka Spiderman. He had the look like “ill see you in the parking lot after this” l which I thought was funny as I don’t know what. But I barely remember Crazy Heart which I thought came out like last March…I mean really…REALLY? Jeff Bridges. Ok well let him get this one but I don’t see him getting the Oscar.
Well that about Raps up the Golden Globes I couldn’t cover all the areas let alone T.V. due to the fact it’s just too much in one post. I mean I’m on page 3 of this post right NOW. Out of 5 ill give the awards a 3, it felt a little dry and not hyped up which I guess can be a good thing every once and awhile. So that about does it for this entry for Movies On Deck. By next week ill have a full read out of my thoughts on Avatar (a month after it came out). So go read a book or something.
Hey wha's going on out there in movie land people if you havent met me before i am Marshall and im here bringing news about upcoming trailers, actors, awards, etc. This is second blog here at MoviesOnDeck.com, so with out further wait let's get down to business.
First off im going to give the week ends box office top 5 movies, starting from the top for the fourth week in a row Avataris the number 1 movie bring in about 48.5 million dollars in the country and about 1.5 billion worldwide. I was a little nervious on how well the movie would see across the world (since it had to make atleast 400 million to break even) but i was impressed about how much buzz it still gets a month later
coming in at number 2 was the infamous sherlock holmes solving mysteries as usual. To me it's good to see people like Robert Downy Jr. back into some more roles after his setbacks in the 90's. Hollywood can take a toll on people and it goes to show that we all can have a few setbacks in life, but the will to go on can overcome any of those setbacks.
Next up at number 3 was Alvin and the chipmunks the squeakquel this weekend. I have yet to see the movie (possibly i will never see it) but I think it is a good idea to have some positive movies out around this time of the year espically with a recession in the mix. The last thing kids need to do is to worry about what our world is going through.
Next at 4 was It's Complicated making ...im going to leave it at that
Finally at 5 and breaking skin in the top 5 is Daybreakers. Daybreakers is about a futuristic world where human blood is needed to sustain life for an alternative being.it looks pretty good i have yet to see it so i might give it a try.
Aright people i got to go but I will see you later this week. PEACE
