Weekend Movie Report Card

Everything I expected and more! Brought me back to my high school days, which granted, isn't hard to do, but this captured that magic perfectly. Michael Cera and Jonah hill were outstanding, and that actress who played Becca did an amazing job! The kind of movie I want to watch, the kind of movie I want to make!

I thought it was really well done and deserving of the praise it's getting. The camera work didn't get me as sick as I hear it's been doing to others, except in that last chase scene. Good build up, great tension, fantastic action... a fun edge-of-your-seat thriller.

Why I skipped this movie in the theaters is beyond me?! Just a wonderful piece of film making! I can't say anything more that hasn't already been said about this movie. Guillermo Del Toro is truly gifted and his commentary and featurettes on the DVD are insightful, educational and truly inspiring.

Better than I expected. More teen drama than fright flick, which appeals to me to begin with, combined with a good mix of comedic moments. A couple of the twists had me going. Shia continues to impress! Worth checking out if you have two hours to kill.

Wow, that's quite a list! I've only YET seen 'Pan's Labyrinth' out of these & yeah, why didn't you see this before? Don't you write Spiderman Fairy Tales!? :)

Such a beautiful movie; I only have to hum the song & my wife breaks into tears.

I loved the first three, didn't watch the last...and probably won't. But I honestly didn't even know Bourne's camera work was making people sick until my mom told me. It didn't bother me at all, I guess!
