Ghost Town

I really enjoyed this movie, I'm sure it didn't get five stars and it will soon be on cable television but it was very enjoyable. Ricky Gervais does a great job, very "House" theres a scene in the beginning where he's checking into a doctors office for a procedure and they are asking questions and he's refusing to answer them because they don't need to sell his personal information to the internet LOL very entertaining I thought. maybe slightly predictable.

I watched this movie a long time ago but i recently watched it again (and i'm at work bored so I thought I'd review it.)
I loved this movie! hense why I saw it twice - which i don't often do with action movies. but it really is a good movie. it's a sci-fi but its somehow believeable. Will Smith is great in it, but is he not good in? its funny, its entertaining, its dramatic, it perfectly combines all the emotions you need for a movie. and Charlize Theron is great in it too. its a very unique idea which i have generally been thankful for in Will Smith's movies lately. they are not predictable and you are engaged the whole time wondering whats going to happen next.

I Love You Man

Friendless Peter Klaven goes on a series of man-dates to find a Best Man for his wedding. But when his insta-bond with his new B.F.F. puts a strain on his relationship with his fiancée, can the trio learn to live happily ever after? courtesy of
its a good movie, entertaining for the most part, but i wouldn't watch it again. I was a little disappointed because I thought it would be some classic Paul Rudd but not so much, its more stupid comedy the kind that Jason Segel normally does. its a bromance comedy. Guys would totally love this movie.
I will say though that Paul Rudd's character is hilarious because he's this really cool guy, he's not a nerd or anything but he really doesn't have any friends. he always has girlfriends and he goes out with her friends and has a few coworkers and stuff but no one major, but hes like a total square. like Jason Segel's character asks him how often he "yanks his chain" and Paul Rudd gets all nerdy uncomfortable "thats personal!!" when most guys talk about that kind of stuff all the time - his character was hilarious.
i wouldnt leave the theatre while watching it, and i wouldnt say it was a waste of time, it is entertaining but I wouldnt tell someone to watch it and I wouldn't want to see it again. its kind of predictable done-before "guy comedy" if you know what i mean.

Battle in Seattle

"With the World Trade Organization about to convene in his city, Seattle's Mayor Jim Tobin (Ray Liotta) tries to make sure all events go smoothly. As tensions between protestors and authorities rise out of control, activists and bystanders get caught in the crossfire. Based on the 1999 protest referred to as the "Battle of Seattle," this drama features Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson, André Benjamin, Connie Nielsen and Michelle Rodriguez." courtesy of Netflix

I LOVED this movie it was SO brillant, a lot of it seems like it was overdramatized but when i started researching it wasnt, although the incident with Charlize Theron I'm sure didn't happen or at least didn't happen by a cop in such a way (I don't want to spoil it for anyone) but its very cool because its actually shot in Seattle, I totally recogonize it all and they also use real footage. it was very cool to see, especially if you're from Seattle and even if you're not.

WTO riots in seattle actually caused 30 riots/ralleys across the nation and is the reason they "won" the "fight" it's an excellent movie. the WTO riots were actually the reason our former Mayor resigned and how Greg Nickels (who JUST lost) got the position. This is huge on Seatte/Nation history.
