Dark Knight- Wow it lives up to all the hype…and Heath Ledger gives the performance of a lifetime

I am stunned.  Dark Knight was everything i hoped for and more. Amazing action…great twists and turns….just when u think the movie is over..its not…just when u can guess whats going to happen..it doesnt.
Christian Bale, Morgan Freement, Michael Caine…all do great as expected…Maggie Gylennhal is a huge improvement over Katie Holmes
And Heath Ledger…Wow…he redefines what it means to play a villain and sets a new bar.  Its the performance of a lifetime…and its really just amazing to watch him in any scene in the movie.

Hellboy 2- good but a bit too cheesy

Im kinda sad to have to say that i thought Hellboy2 was too cheesy.  i had been waiting for it…and the action was good. But there was so much cheese to it..it took away from being a bit more of a darker action movie. It was way more cheese than the first one..which i really liked.
Worth seeing..or at least renting…go with lower expectations

WALL-E A “sweet” movie ..cool graphics, a few laughs

I dont think i’ve ever described a movie as "Sweet" but this movie is def that.
It had great graphics…and unique story line.  It had a few decent laughs too.
Its a light movie…and i def think worth seeing. Good for grown ups not just kids.

Hancock- funny, and Will Smith and Charleze Theron great tagteam

I like everyone else am a big fan of Will Smith…and I was waiting for Hancock to come out for a long time.  I have to say it really delivered.  It had great action…a really interesting story…some really funny parts..thanks to Jason Bateman who’s career has been revived ever since Arrested Development.  (Go see the Kingdom he’s good in that too)
Frankly I liked Hancock more than Superman.  Its sad that even the trailer for Hancock had more action and super power usage than the entire Superman Returns movie. 
Also Charleze Theron was great in tihs…she really looked good throughout (sometimes she looks very different in her movies)…and I think the tag team of her and Will Smith was a great idea.
Definitely go see it…and wait a few minutes at the end to see the last scene
