NEW MOON


It was really and truly good. It was terrific. Honey, I'm telling you, I have never seen so many women go see a movie. The line was clear out the door. Go see it. I didn't think I would like it. I mean to tell you, it was really, really great. It was much better than the first one. I couldn't understand why everyone was so nuts about this vampire. Now I know. He was a good vampire. I give it a 10.

BROTHERS


It was about two brothers. One is a Captain in the Airforce. The other is kind of an outcast. The one in the Airforce is in Iraq. They thought he was dead. But he wasn't dead. They kept in a hole for I don't know how long. They wanted him to mke tapes saying the US was wrong. Then the head guy of the creeps (you know, those guys over there) made him kill a private. Well, he never gets over it. Meanwhile, his brother has been taking care of his wife and children, taking them ice skating. I think maybe there was one kiss between them. When he goes home and sees his brother with his family he goes beserk. It was sad. What happened at the end? I don't remember. Sheila and I saw it. It was a war movie.

EVERYBODY'S FINE


You will like this one. I know you will. He's a father who has 4 children. His wife just died. They are supposed to come visit him and they all cancel. So he decides to go see them. It's sort of a learning experience for him. I hadn't seen Robert Deniro play in a long time. He was great. He's getting old.

2012


Don't take the kids. It was too scary. Nostradamus said the world would end in 2012. They were great actors, but I just don't like to see the world end. It was kind of depressing. I give it a 7.

BLINDSIDE


It was a great movie. It will put tears in your eyes. Sandra Bullock played a great part. She was a southern girl. She was real proper. Quinton Aaron, he played the black boy. He was fantastic. They sam him walking home and he had no clothes on. They stopped and took him home. It was just a wonderful movie. It showed you what people can do for other people when they make up their minds to. I give it a 10.

ZOMBIELAND


If you want something really funny, you should go see this. Sheila and I were the only ones in the whole damn movie. It was fantastic! It really was funny. We sat there and laughed like nuts. It tore us up! I give it a 9.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL


Jim Carrey was a great Scrooge. It was great for kids. It's animated, but you know what's funny? Scrooge really looks like Jim Carrey. I give it a 9. Don't take any kids under 10. 10 & up.

THE BOX


A man with a real ucky face comes to Cameron Diaz's house and tells her that if she pushes the button, she'll get a million dollars. Well, that was the wrong thing to do. When she pushes the button, someone dies. She doesn't know who. I give it a 7. It was a weird thing.

OLD DOGS


If you go see anything, go see this. It was outstanding! They were so funny. You'll love it when the gorilla gets Seth Green and Seth Green sings to the gorilla. It was so funny! I give it a 9 1/2.

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE


You know, it was a good movie. The kid played a great part. And of course Spike Jonze made it. I thought it would be a little bit different though. I thought it would be funnier. I gave it a 9. Sheila liked it. It started out real crazy. He got in trouble and he went in a boat and that's where these wild things were. And they [the wild things] were great. I don't know how they did that. Then they sent him home in his boat. It wasn't what I thought it was supposed to be. They always show the best parts in the preview.

COUPLE'S RETREAT

Oh was that funny! These couples went on a group vacation. You would have come out of your seat, it was so funny. Absolutely hilarious.

THE INVENTION OF LYING


That was a weird thing. It was a good movie, but it was weird. It was funny. It was really funny. It was odd, but it was funny. They didn't lie. If they had something to say, they just said it. And he was the first one to lie. I gave it an 8. Jennifer Garner was in it.

THE INFORMANT


It was okay. It was kind of.... He was working for the government and he turned on his company. It was alright. I gave it a 7. Rent it if you want to see it. Don't spend the money. It wasn't one of his best movies.

WHITE OUT


This was in Alaska. It happens in the cold, cold, cold. It was real good. I gave it an 8 1/2. She's a US Marshal. It was really interesting. It kept you on the edge of your seat.

ALL ABOUT STEVE

That was the funniest thing you ever did want to see. It was funny! I gave it a 9. I like Sandra Bullock. Anything she plays in, she plays her heart out. Go see it.

THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE


This was an odd movie, Sis. It just didn't make no damn sense to me. It was going back and forth in time and you didn't know where in the hell you were. I really didn't care for it. It was one of those weird ones.

SHORTS


Now that was funny! It was hilarious. He picks up a rock and it gives him powers. It was really funny. They were kids, you know. I give it a 9.

DISTRICT 9


It was alright. It was kind of far out. It was, you know, just one of those movies. You go in, you sit down, and you think "Oh God, what am I doing here?" I just gave it a 7 1/2.

G FORCE

It was about guinea pigs, you know. It was a cute movie. I gave it an 8. Nicolas Cage played in it and Tracy Morgan.
It was really funny. If you can't go see it, rent it.

LAND OF THE LOST


I really didn't care for that much. The kids would like it because it has animals in it. They fall through a hole and they are in where the animals are. It was funny. I'd give it a 7.

UP


[I'm reading a list of new movies to Granny. No recollection. Then I start telling her what happens in the movies] Oh, I saw that. It was cute. Good for kids. It was cute. They had everything in that, they had monsters, everything. It's in 3D. We didn't go see it in 3D. You have to pay 3 or 4 dollars for them glasses. And you don't get that money back, but you don't keep the glasses. I give it a good 8 1/2.

HANGOVER


That was great. They ended up with this baby and they didn't know how they got it. They ended up with a tiger in their room and they didn't know how they got it either. It was cute! I give it an 8.

DRAG ME TO HELL


I thought it was a bunch of crap. It was awful. It was sickening. I thought to myself "Marian, why did you spend six bucks on this stupid movie?" I don't know what happens, I had my eyes closed half of the time. This old lady regurgitating in someone else's mouth. I thought I was gonna die. Please don't take your kids. Don't even go yourself. I give it a one. And you know how generous I am with my movies. I have seen some horrible movies in my time, 'cause you know how I go, but this might be the worst movie I've ever seen.

ANGELS AND DEMONS


Oh it was good! You don't know who the bad guy is until the end. It was real suspenseful. It was better than the first one. I give it a 9 1/2.

GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST


It was cute, really cute. It was with Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner. It was funny. I give it a 9. You can take the kids to see it. There's nothing bad in it. It's about this guy who is a photographer. It has all his past girlfriends in it. Honey, he had a whole damn roomful of old girlfriends. He was busy! He found Jennifer Garner and he really liked her. Jennifer Garner was really great.

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 2: BATTLE OF THE SMITHSONIAN


THAT was hilarious. Oh God, that was so funny. It was really great. Take the kids to see it, they will crack up. It was hilarious. They were taking the people from the last time to Washington, DC. Ben Stiller wouldn't let them do it. He went to Washington and fought for them. They all came alive. It was just hilarious, them trying to get out of Washington, DC. It was better than the first one. Go see it. They had the wacky comedy with the monkeys, they just had everything. Ben Stiller played a great part.

THE SOLOIST


That was really good. It was a sad movie, kinda. Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr lived on the street. They lived in a place where people could go, like a shelter. But there were people who couldn't make it into the shelter. Jamie Foxx played a real good part in it. So did Robert Downey Jr. Boy, he's made some really good movies since he straightened up. It was worth seeing.

STAR TREK


It was great! I give it a 9 1/2. The kids who payed in that, they were all Australian. They were really, really good. It was great. At the end, you got to see Spock in real life. That was really good. I heard William Shatner was upset when they asked Spock to be in it and not him. He was really pissed, or so I hear.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE



Oh God, that was good. I give it a 9 1/2. They come out with some good ones. They are kind of on the creepy side, but they are good. Hugh Jackman is in it. And Liev Schreiber. Oh he's a creep! I never like him in anything. He was good in this. I don't know about taking little kids. It was kind of scary.

I LOVE YOU, MAN


It was a good movie, not a great one. It was funny. It was just funny. Sheila liked it too. It was really good. It was something different, let's put it that way. But go see it, or you can wait until it comes out and rent it.

FAST AND FURIOUS


Oh that was a good movie! You have to go see it! It kept you on the edge of your seat. It's about car racing. When I read about it in the paper, I thought they were going around the track. Honey, this was street racing! Honest to God. You held onto your seat, because you were right there with them. If you like action, boy it was good. Go see it. I gave it a 9 1/2. Vin Diesel was great in it. I love an action movie!

ADVENTURELAND


Let me tell you, please don't take your children. It was a lot of bad language. Every other word was "F." They drank. They were just kids! I just don't like that "F word." I gave it a 5 1/2. Sheila and I came out of it just shaking our heads.

KNOWING


This had Nicolas Cage and Rose Byrne. It was a real good movie. It kept you on the edge of your seat the whole time. i even had to hide my eyes, that's how bad it was (action-wise). It's a must see. I give it a nine. It was a thriller.

DUPLICITY


It stars Clive Owens and Julia Roberts. It was hard to keep up with. They went back and forth in time. It's hard to keep up with that crap. It takes you off guard. If it was me, I'd rent it, because you'll save some money. I didn't care for it much. I give it a 6.

WATCHMEN


I really didn’t care for it that much. It was kind of crazy. There was a green man. I don’t know, it just didn’t do that much for me. I thought it was going to be good. I would give it a 7.

RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN


Go see it! It was really fantastic. It’s about these kids who are aliens. The FBI had taken their ship. They had to go to Witch Mountain to get it. They had to get it out because the aliens were going to invade America and these kids had to get back to where they come from. It kept you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Duane Johnson played it it. It was really good. These kids got in a cab and they were being followed. The Rock said, "Don’t worry,” but they were getting closer. The kid slipped out of the car and stood in the middle of the road (he had powers that he could do that), and he crashed their car to pieces. I give it an 8 1/2.

NEW IN TOWN


Renee Zellweger played in this one. It was cute. She’s an executive sent to this small town. They were having problems, so they sent her there to solve their problems. You know how she is, she was just funny in it. I would give it an 8 ½.

INKHEART


It was good. It was a funny thing. They were supposed to bring the characters to life by reading a book aloud. I give it 8 ½ . It’s worth going to see.

PUSH


I like Dakota Fanning. This was a good movie...It’s been a while since I saw it. You go so long and then you forget what the hell it was about. I’d say it was about a 7 ½.

THE READER


It was about this young kid and this woman; and they had an affair. They met years later, and they got together again. It was the nazi war trials and she was accused of heinous crimes. It wasn’t a bad movie. I thought it was about an 8 ½ .

HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU


I saw the one with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Anderson. That was pretty cute. It was funny. There were these girls who were dating. They were after different guys and half the time [the guys] didn’t really like them. These guys wouldn’t call them back. You know how kids are. They thought these guys would just fall all over themselves for them and they didn’t!

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE



It was cute. It was sad to see how those people lived in India. That was kind of sad. I don’t see how it won all the Academy Awards, but it was ok. It was real sad the way they lived. They don’t have nothin’.

PAUL BLART MALL COP


That was hilarious! I tell you what, it started out kind of yucky, but the more it went on, you really got into it. He really kicked ass in that movie!

REVOLUTIONARY ROAD


I didn’t care for it. You know how some movies turn you on and some don’t do nothing for you? It wasn’t what I thought it was going to be.

THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON

SPOILER ALERT We went to see that Buttons movie yesterday. Poor Sheila got sick in the movie. She thought she was gonna vomit. But we didn't leave. It was a pretty good movie. It was interesting. And how young he was. He turned into a young baby and he died as a little baby...he died like that. I don't know how they did it. It was worth going to see.

DEFIANCE

It was a pretty good movie. They escaped from the holocaust with the Germans. I enjoyed this movie. It had a lot of action in it. How they stayed in those woods, I'll never know. They lived in those woods for 2 years. I give it a 8 1/2. Those poor jews really suffered. I felt bad for them. It was really bad.

BRIDE WARS

It was okay. It wasn't as cute as I thought it was gonna be. It was two girls fighting over who was gonna get the date for their wedding. They turned against each other. it was funny in parts and in other parts it was...eh. It was just a mediocre movie. I wouldn't go see it again. I'd give it a 7. or a 6 1/2. It was kind of ickey.

GRAN TOURINO

SPOILER ALERT Clint Eastwood played a wonderful part in it. He was a true Clint Eastwood, a tough guy. He acted like he used to in his movies. I give it a 9. Go see it. He came back from the military. The neighborhood had changed. There were a lot of immigrants. He had a pretty nice place and all the rest of the places were pretty run down. He made friends with a Mexican boy. He took him under his wing. You know how gangs are. They were pretty violent. Clint Eastwood had a Gran Tourino that he had before the war. He died at the end, and he left that Gran Tourino to that little Mexican boy. His grandaughter thought she was gonna get it. Boy was she disappointed.

DOUBT

Meryl Streep and Amy Adams play in this one. It was okay. Meryl Streep played a good part in it. I would rent it if I was you. I'd give it a 7 1/2. How much are your movies there? $12? Well, that's why I'd rent it. It wasn't worth $12.

THE SPIRIT

It was far out. I didn't care for it. I would give it a 6 1/2. If you plan to see it, rent it.
