I am so excited for Pixar's upcoming film "Brave" (2012).
Especially because Cars 2 (though I haven't seen it yet)
was kind of a disappointment to me because of the fact that it was made.
It was the first pixar film to be made all for the money
and not for a truly good movie. Well thankfully pixar has noticed,
so right away they released a trailer and poster for Brave as a way of saying
(I know our movie sucks, but its okay because next year, our movie will be good).
And it does look good. I was a bit upset because it has a very similar
feel to Tangled but really that's not very true. Its just two princess movies.
So Brave is about the Scottish princess Merida and her troubles after trying
to save her fathers kingdom. Since I am now living in France I put "visiting Scotland"
on my list because there is some fantastic scenery in the trailer.
I also think the princess has a great look with some major
shaun white bright red frizzy hair. People on Youtube are already
making comments like "This movie has no soul" and "help! its a ginger!"
Haha, well here is the trailer for brave and i will do my best to
keep you guys up with all the latest news.

Okay, I am more than excited to see this summer movie.
First, it's directed by Jon Favreau, (who I have always liked.)
He did Iron Man (awesome) Iron Man 2 (not half bad) and elf (classic.)
This movie is based on the graphic novel but revved up.
Second, it has Daniel Craig (james Bond) Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones)
and one of the lately growing in popularity stars: Olivia Wilde.
Here are some of my thoughts. I don't think this movie will
be a classic. I doubt this movie is going to be the mark of the start
of a whole new generation of films; i,e Avatar. Not saying it won't be good.
I think it will be sweet, but maybe more for movie parties than life-changing.
This is one of those movie you want on your ipod/ipad. I don't really have
any concerns, but I do hope they do an iconic putting on of the hat for
Harrison Ford like in Indiana Jones. This movie will be all that it should be.
Who knows. Maybe it will be more.
Here are two trailers (the first one, and the superbowl one)
Hey everybody. We have a ton of superhero flicks coming up from 2011-2013.
With the superbowl that just happened, the news is crazy!
Well, here is a list of them:
1. Captain America: The First Avenger
3. Green Lantern
4. X-Men first class
5. Nick Fury
6. The Avengers
8. Dark Knight Rises
9. Spiderman: Reloaded
11. Iron Man 3
I'll post as much news as I get and maybe make some individual posts for these.

Wow. Almost nothing needs to be said.
Pixar. Movie. that's about all.
It rates 2ND place out of the 3 toy stories. 1ST one is just classic.
2ND one is so great and awesome, but yet not as much as this one.
Pixar is a perfectionist company. And they're good at being perfectionists
because they perfect they're films. That's what's so great about it.
Casting already perfected, animation perfected, script perfected.
Every Little detail. Every grain of grass, to every license plate on
every passing car. I was SO good. Definitely see. this.
You probably already have. if not throw this computer out of your hands,
grab a 20 dollar bill and seat your butt in the car and go see this right now.
Those of you that have already seen it (which better be all of you) See it again!
Thats how good it is.
My favorite characters are the drumming monkey, ken doll, and the clown.
I'm not going to give the plot away. Just go see it.
We got invited to a special viewing of Despicable Me about a week ago. I was SO good.
Awesome animation thats so clean and detailed, great plot, really funny comedy, and good characters.
It's not at all what I expected. I probably rate it 8/10. I'll probably also get it on iTunes when it is released there.
I even liked it better than some pixar films which are my favorites.
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! (do not read on if you do not want the plot review. May contain spoilers)
This is about gru. A villain who is feeling under appreciated because of the newer and younger villains
who are turing more evil and smarter than him. He needs a great idea to cause tons of trouble.
He comes up with stealing the moon. Whoa. In order to make this plan work, he'll need a shrink ray
which is currently in the hands of another villain, Vector, who Gru dislikes greatly.
He needs to steal the shrink ray from him and to do that, he uses 3 girls who are selling cookies to Vector.
I won't spoil how he does that.
So after spending lots of time with the girls he begins liking them and he continuously becomes less and less evil.
Thats all I'll give away.

Iron Man 2 was pretty awesome. They did a good mixture of action comedy and suspense. It kept me entertained the whole way through. I haven't seen the first on so If any body else hasn't, I recommend checking out the synopsis on IMDB. I rate it 6.5/10.
Prince of persia was much better than the average video game film. Action packed the whole way through with awesome parkour. 7/10

Hey everybody! Here's just a review on spring break movies of 2010.
Here are them all:
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
How to Train Your Dragon
Avatar (yes it's still in theaters)
Clash of the Titans
The Bounty Hunter
IMAX MOVIE: HUBBLE
Now first of all, I didn't see Clash of the Titans or The Bounty Hunter. From the reviews: Don't waste your time on The Bounty Hunter. As for Clash of the Titans, it sounds like it can be upsetting for those who like the 1980's version, but if you going to see it just to see it, I've heard it's epic. I liked DOAWK and HTTYD a lot so go see those! Hubble I've heard from everyone was great too.

This movie exceeded all of my good expectations. It was great! The director Thor Freudenthal did much better than I thought he would. I can relate his middle school to mine. It had a couple of cheesey jokes, yes but it had more really funny ones than the cheesey ones. I thought this was very well casted too. A lot of people reviewing this thinks Zach Gordon, (the kid who plays greg) is too young but actually, he looks about the size of a lot of 6th graders at my school. You don't have to read the books for this movie if you want to enjoy it. You can just go. For those of you who are concerned that the film is nothing like the book, it stays pretty close. I probably rate this movie 7.5/10.
