5.0 out of 5 stars Action packed as a Rambo movie should be!, May 27 2008
This review is from: Rambo [Import] (DVD)
Don't even think that Sylvester Stallone is not able to make action movies anymore, heck no! He most definitely proves himself to be an excellent director and outstanding actor, as well as in excellent shape for his age.

Obviously it's not for the young crowd or light hearted because it's very violent and gore-filled with many special effects that are quite convincing. But then again, there is nothing pretty in a situation such as this one in the middle of a genocide.

It was great to see Stallone in yet another great Rambo movie and the only negative point that I may have is that it was too short! Great solid action movie! Loved it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat interesting but mostly disappointing, May 21 2008
This review is from: First Snow [Import] (DVD)
Although Guy Pearce is a great actor and really pulls through, I still expected more out of this movie. As usual, I tend to base movie on trailers, but I guess maybe I should not always go according to them. This is one of the movies with a really good trailer, but except for a few good scenes, it pretty much stops there. They could have done a lot more with this and it could have been presented differently. Many parts are slow and not enough content to keep it interesting. I kept looking at the time left into the movie and hoping for a good ending. All in all, it wasn't totally bad but too many dull long stretches and not enough to keep the momentum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really entertaining and a great thriller!, May 15 2008
This review is from: Untraceable Bilingual (DVD)
A very well done thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. The story contains many original never seen twists and quite believable with its solid technology and background supporting every fact.

The cast is outstanding starring Diane Lane as a Federal Agent investigating bad guys on the internet, supported by Bill Burke as her rival investigator and Colin Hanks as a co-worker and good friend. Great performance by all!

Although this movie is very entertaining, it's also quite disturbing to see how technology and internet has progressed to such evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good and funny!, May 14 2008
This review is from: Over Her Dead Body [Import] (DVD)
I loved this movie! Very nice entertaining romantic comedy complimented by an outstanding cast! Most of us know Eva Longoria Parker from DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and what she is capable of as far as an uplifting actrice. She is exactly what this movie needs and plays her part so well! Paul Rudd is very amusing as always and Lake Bell does an amazing job as well. Not a big fan of Jason Biggs, but he does surprisingly good also. Overall, a great cast!

Watch it with an open mind with family and/or friends and you will more than likely have a good time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very cute and entertaining, April 21 2008
This review is from: Snow Buddies (Bilingual) (DVD)
Yes of course it's very cute to see little puppies in action but it's nothing you've never seen before. However, it's very entertaining and you can't stop but watch to see an end that is obviously predictable. I'm sure the very young viewers will be more likely to enjoy this Disney Air Bud movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious subject with a twist of humour, April 21 2008
This review is from: Juno (Widescreen) (DVD)
The subject matter of this movie is most definitely a serious one which many parents hopes to never have to deal with their teenage daughter, but the young actrice Ellen Page pulls it out very good and gives it a really nice twist of humour.

What makes a pregnancy so difficult with teenage girls is the decisions and consequences that follows, and this movie most certainly gives hope to these young women.

I truly enjoyed this movie, even though I tought a few parts were a bit weird, but overall funny and entertaining.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expected more... but was entertained, April 21 2008
Bravo Amanda, you sum up pretty much my own thoughts with a twist of humour. Mind you I gave it a higher score because I guess I enjoyed the movie a little bit more, although I was expecting more with such an impressive cast. Even though I was starting to be very disappointed in Jason Statham's movie roles lately, I truthfully loved him in this one.

I agree that the Ninja dudes do not fit well in this type of movie, and quite frankly, I don't really know why they were even there.

There were other flaws, but in conclusion, I believe it was entertaining and a slightly below-average fantasy movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but certainly not excellent, April 15 2008
This review is from: Lions for Lambs (Widescreen) (DVD)
The cast tries to do a good job, but the script is not meeting them half way, which makes it difficult for them to achieve their goal. Except for the little bit of action when the soldiers in Iraq are faced with a huge crisis, the rest is pretty much talk, talk and talk all the way to the end.

The movie is separated in 3 different scenarios, which in reality, are all part of the same situation... a few specific soldiers dealing with war in Iraq.

There are better movies out there concerning this issue with a more intelligent and entertaining script. You can easily skip this one.
