Took the kids to see Alice in Wonderland last week. WIll admit that I liked it more than I expected and surprised the kids liked it a lot. Sprung for a 3D showing, but felt like it didn't take advantage of it. The Crispin Glover character's movement didn't seem to flow well at some points.

I laughed that only in Tim Burton's world is Crispin Glover the Alpha Male :)

How to Train Your Dragon in 3D

Wasn't to sure about this movie from the first trailer I had seen, but it was a very enjoyable experience.  Definitely takes advantage of 3D process, has believable characters (cartoony in design, but they work), some flying sequences that certainly feel Miyazaki-inspired, and a story that does act as the foundation for the film, as opposed to being just something to string CGI eyecandy sequences together. 

With the exception of the teenage vikings sounding like typical modern day kids, the film does not fall into Shrek's territory of current pop-culture references and fart jokes. 

Looks like this will be my first Blu-Ray movie purchase (hopefully with the 3D option).

Ghost Writer. Really fun, strange. The folks I saw it with thought the ending
was weak but I thought it made sense.

Took the kids to see How to Train Your Dragon, but not in 3D. I promised them that we would go THIS weekend and the only showing we could make was not in 3D. Can see where it might have worked really well. Really enjoyed it. Surprised they did not play up the cast more. Fun movie.

THE CRAZIES. I really enjoyed this movie. Good scares and a decent plot. Made for a fun evening at the movies. The cherry icee was an added bonus.

DIARY OF A WIMPY KID- I liked it.  It was a mix between TV's The Adventures of Pete & Pete and Disney movies from the 80's & 90's.  When the kids read the books they would howl with laughter.

ALICE IN WONDERLAND-  Not good.  Didn't like it at all and I had really been looking forward it (not many movies entice me to the theater).  First of all....it wasn't Alice in Wonderland and didn't even pretend to be...

Clash of the Titans - Didn't really like that.

and Kick Ass again.  Still enjoying it.  Can't really remember the last time I've liked a film that much at the cinema.

We went and watched DATE NIGHT tonight.  Had its moments and we had a good time.  Also it rang in at under an hour and a half.  That can be real nice sometimes.

SHERLOCK HOLMES---saw it a couple of weeks ago at a $2 theatre. Wanted to see it when it first came out but so darn busy.

Enjoyed it. Liked the chemistry between Robert and Jude. Hoping for a sequel.

The Ghost was pretty naff, Cemetery Junction was very good.

I went to see Date Night last night, and I have to say,
even being a fan of both Carell and Fey, I was surprised at
how much I enjoyed it. Lots of laughs, and the appearances
by the kids kept to a minimum.

One thing I did notice though - for as many jokes as there
were that centered around Mark Wahlberg's hotness and
physique, by his standards, dude was *fat*.

Saw Date Night the other day.

Not too bad really.

Good line about Mark Wahlberg's shirt.

Hot Tub Time Machine

Went with a buddy of mine - it had three things going for it that lured me in:

a) I'm a sucker for time travel movies;

b) John Cusack was in it - he rarely does a bad movie (excluding 2012);

c) We got free popcorn and a drink with our ticket.

There were enough laughs in it - it was no classic, but I've seen much much worse.

Kick-Ass.  And, for the record, it lived up to it's name sake.

Iron Man 2. Great, but flawed. ScarJo kicked ass though... :-)

Iron Man 2. Not as good as the first one, but the Marvel universe is coming up nicely.
