Go see Lady in the Water!- The critics are nuts

Once again, the critics are wrong.  I really liked Lady in the Water!
Good story..some really funny parts…very engaging.
Unlike many of his other movies..there wasnt a giant surprise at the end..which i think strikes some folks…but enough small twists that make it fun.  Plus he gave himself a bigger role in this movie..which i thought was cool
A must see!  Full price or any

Pirates of the Carribean 2: not as good as the first but ok

I was a bit disappointed by Pirates 2.  It was fun…funny..decent. But just not as good as the first.
They worked too hard to making it lead to a number 3..should have worked harder to finish number 2 fully.  I wasnt a huge fan of the ending because of this.
Still entertaining to go see…but dont think its as good as the first
A lot of hype about this moving breaking box office records too..so be careful.

Superman Returns– Great special effects–but needs more action less drama

So it finally came-Superman Returns.
A movie i had been waiting for for years..and by a director that I expected lots from (brian singer) after he did so well on Xmen and X2.
So overall Superman was only ok.  Im sad to say.  Its definitely worth seeing in the theater ASAP..but was just slightly too long..or really needed more action.
Kevin Spacey did really great job as Lex Luthor.
And Brandon Routh made a decent superman..no Chris Reeve but he did a great job.
The movie also gets MAJOR points for getting his powers right. He was super fast..super strong..very well done. Something that movies and cartoons seem to sometimes get wrong.
I wasnt a fan of Kate bosworth as Lois..not too believable..and she doesnt pull off a brunette very well.
Overall a good movie…I hope Superman 2 is way more action and less cheese.
Go see it…keep expectations low and you’ll like it.
Plus the Score is amazing..a mix of the orignial John Williams soundtrack and new ones..its great
