Jen and I love to watch movies – mostly we rent them. Here’s our review of the past few movies we’ve watched.

disturbia Disturbia: This one was recommended by my sister…

What a dissapointment! The whole first half of the movie was soooo boring. There was a cool scene at the very beginning but it wasn’t worked into the film enough to really make sense. So we were waiting for the movie to really kick in, which it never did. It was just a really cheesy teen murder mystery that just got worse as it went on. I can’t recommend it and I’m sorry if you wasted 2 hours on this teenage cheezeball murder mystery thriller wannabe.

300 300 – highly recommended by everybody!

WOW! I love me some war movie. Larger than life, men being men, kickin’ A. It doesn’t get much better than this. I would closely compare it to Gladiator, although it doesn’t have the epic scenes that Gladiator does. It has one really great scene (or maybe two). This scene is when a deformed man wants to be a Spartan soldier, but the leader of the Spartans asks him to raise his shield and he cannot. It is explained that every Spartan is required to protect the man to his left with his shield, from thigh to neck. So the “freak” is refused a place in the Spartan Phalanx. The next scene shows the 300 Spartans fighting off thousands of Persians, using the Phalanx formation, and they are just kicking BUTT. I love it. Other than some silly nude scenes, this movie is awesome!

fracture Fractured: Starring Anthony Hopkins.

You can pretty much bet that anything Anthony Hopkins is in will be great. This was a good thriller. Not amazing, but compared with the movies we were watching, this shined like a diamond in the rough. It started out a little slow, but by towards the end it got addicting and we wanted to know what was going to happen. I would say this movie delivered as a thriller/shocker. And in the end you really felt like rooting for the good guy.

Perfect Stangers: Random Rental

Ok, this one was Jen’s fault – just a normal rental, new release. I mean it wasn’t her fault, but it was. This was horrible. I can’t believe an ocsar winning actress would stoop to this level. I mean come on man! This was BAD BAD BAD, soooooo cheesy. I can’t even believe that this movie made it from screen write to production. Oh yeah, they use the “F” word like at least 100 times unnecessarily. Highly unrecommended.

  1. did em recommend “disturbia”? ha ha!
    “300”!, yes it was visually stunning but i got a lot out of it too, me and my roommate still talk about that movie.

  2. Sorry man, I loved Disturbia and Fracture was pretty boring! I rented Breach (which was pretty decent, and much better then fracture)

  3. Wow, I actually really liked Disturbia! The ending went really far fetched but I enjoyed the rest of it.
    Totally agree with 300! I wish you could edit your own movies so I could take out the nude scenes as well.

  4. Has Halle Barry ever been in a good movie? should have been your first clue.

  5. We did not even finish watching “Disturbia” by the way…

  6. Halle Barry has been in good movies! If you like those type anyway…haha. I LOVED 300! I thought it was going to be a little more like Gladiator, and some of those types, but I loved how simple and straight forward it was. I’m glad you had us over to watch it!

  7. I’ve been wanting to check out 300.

  8. 300 is on the list this weekend when the wife goes away!

    Watched “Children of Men” this week – best movie I’ve seen this year.
