fun adventure, 14 May 2011
8/10

Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock plays Beck/a bounty hunter/retrieval expert who owes a debt to a mobster.his final job to clear his debt is to go to the Amazon and bring back the mobster's son(Sean William Scott).but that may not be easy as it seems.what follows is plenty of action adventure comedy and thrills.Scott and The Rock have good comedic chemistry.their back and forth banter is very funny.this is The Rock's first feature film and he is very good here.he has great screen presence.Sean Willliam Scott is also good.both are likable,as are their characters.Rosario Dawson is good as well.and lets not forget Christopher Walker who plays the villain.this was a fun film,which i'd recommend if you like action adventure and comedy.for me,The Rundown is an 8/10

After.Life, 14 May 2011
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

School teacher Anna Taylor dies in a horrific car accident..Liam Neeson is the funeral director who seems to have a gift for communicating withe the dead,and so helps Anna come to grips with her death so she can cross over to the other side.but things may not be what the appear to be.Is Anna really dead?there are several tantalizing clues along the the way,and Anna's Boyfriend begins to suspect there is more going on here than meets the eye,but time may be running out.i liked this film.it's well acted,and well written,and suspenseful.i especially liked the ending.if you're really paying attention,you'll be able to figure out what's going on pretty quickly.for me,After.Life is a 7/10

the best of the three parodies, 12 May 2011
10/10

i thought this was the best of the Robot Chicken Star Wars Parodies.it's a bit longer this time at 45 minutes without commercials,but the time just flies by.once again the skits are random and hilarious,and absurd.i can't wait for this third one to come out on DVD so i can purchase it.if you like to laugh and are a fan of the Star Wars Saga,i'd recommend all three Robot Chicken Star Wars Parodies.i'd never even seen an episode of Robot Chicken before watching these specials,and i don't think it's necessary to do so in order to enjoy them.these parodies are funnier than the Family guy parodies,though those are also funny.for me,Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III is a 10/10

as funny as the first parody, 12 May 2011
10/10

this second Parody of Star Wars is just as funny as the first one.the skits are again anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes and are just as random as in the firs.the follow no pattern.once again taking bits from all(or most)of the Star Wars episodes.some of them are just ass ridiculously absurd,so much so you can't help laughing.i laughed myself silly on a number of occasions.this special is also,if memory serves around the 25 minute mark,so again they jam a lot of material into the running time.even though it's short,i'd purchase it on DVD and watch it over and over again,as well as the first parody.for me,Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II is a 10/10

very funny Star Wars Paraody, 12 May 2011
10/10

having never watched an episode of Robot chicken,i wasn't sure what to expect.but i was more than pleasantly surprised at this parody of star wars.it' done in quick random skits that range from a few seconds to a minute or two,one right after another.most of them are hilarious.some are absolutely absurd.the skits don't follow the order of the movies.there are bits thrown in from basically all(or most) the episodes.i laughed frequently and loudly throughout.i thought the the voice work was really good.this special is about 20 odd minutes on DVD,so they cram a lot of gags into it.this parody is funnier than the Family Guy parodies in my opinion.for me,Robot Chicken: Star Wars is a 10/10

all bets are off, 11 May 2011
8/10

Scream 3 is one entertaining film.like the previous two films,you're left guessing to the end as toe the identity of the killer.i don't know if it's the best of the trilogy,but for sheer entertainment it cant be beat.it gets a bit chaotic at times,and b becomes a b it of a mess,but then again in third chapter all bets are. and ti is nonetheless.it ends the trilogy on a high note.the actors really get into their roles and look like they are having fun with their characters.it will be interesting to see what happens in the fourth installment.as for this film,i enjoyed it immensely and would watch it again.for me,Scream 3 is an 8/10

better than the original, 11 May 2011
9/10

Scream 2 is just as good as Scream,in my opinion.it's more thrilling and suspenseful.and i think maybe a bit more entertaining overall.it's just as clever as the original.i think it's also better paced than the original.just like the original,,you're left guessing to the end as to the identity of the killer,as there as are so many suspects.there's a bit of character development too so you actually care about the characters.this one ups the ant a bit in the gore department.if you liked the first movie,you should definitely like Scream 2.as sequels go,it ranks right up there,proving that sometimes the second film in a series can be as good as the first or better.for me,Scream 2is a 9/10

broke the horror genre convention, 10 May 2011
8/10

Scream is quite a clever film.it pokes fun at the genre,without crossing the line into comedy.it's well written,and still comes across as fresh even today.there's a myriad of suspects that could be the killer and your kept guessing right to the very end as to who It is.the characters in this one are not as dumb as they would be in your conventional horror film,but then again this is no conventional horror film.Scream spawned two sequels with a third now in theatres. it revolutionized the horror genre and spawned numerous imitators and ripoffs all of inferior quality.15 years later,it still stands the test of time as a well written horror convention breaking film.

earns its thrills/scares honestly, 7 May 2011
8/10

OK,so maybe this isn't the most original movie around,but how many of those are there ,if you really think about?this was a well acted suspenseful,thriller.it kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen next.one thing that separates this from many suspense thrillers is there are no jump scares,where the music builds to a crescendo and then suddenly a cat jumps out at you or some piece of equipment falls down in front of you.so no cheap scares.Hilary Swank and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Christopher Lee are very good.all in all,i enjoyed this film.it comes by its thrills/scares honestly.for me,The Resident is an 8/10

Frozen, 7 May 2011
7/10

the basic premise of the film is this:a trio of friends,through a misunderstanding,end up stranded on a ski lift close to the top of the mountain.they soon realize that know one knows they are up there.it's a Sunday and the resort will not open again until the following Friday.somehow they have to find a way to survive.without giving too much away,this film is a bit gruesome in parts.once the film focuses on just the three friends,there's some character development,so you get to feel some empathy for them and hope they survive their ordeal.the three are likable characters,so that helps.i had no idea how the film would end up,but i know it didn't end up like i expected,so points for that.for me,Frozen is a 7/10
