Iron Man 2 and Prince of Persia review

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

Spring Break review

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

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.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid review

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.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hopes and Concerns

I do have hopes and concerns for this movie so I hope this turns out as a good post.
HOPES: It would be nice if it were close to the book, and it seems like it from the trailer. Another hope is that it won't have the same really cheesey comedy that the director has done before (Hotel For Dogs). I also want a great cast. The casting for this was hard because the book doesn't state any details of what the characters look like. They just had the stick figures to go by. We'll see how they pulled it off.
CONCERNS: This first concern relates to the second hope. I'm concerned it will have that cheesey comedy. I also am concerned this movie is going to be nothing like real middle school which the book kind of is. My final concern is that they'll add in a ton of extra parts that totally mess up the plot which has ruined a lot of movies I've seen. That's all for now!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Theif Review

It actually was not at all as bad as I thought it would be. It had amazing sets, such as mount olympus and the underworld. Of course, the casting was a little off but according to the internet, this was because the film makers wanted this movie series to be as different from Harry Potter as possible, and also to attract a larger audience.
I am a big fan of the series this movie was based on and some parts can be upsetting.
They took out some large contributors of the book and replaced them with other scenes, but I liked how it turned out in the end.
Note: if you have not read the book, this movie can be hard to keep up with at the beginning. It's very fast paced.
If your going to see this movie for your spare time and just for pleasure, you'll like it, if your a big fan of the series, I have no way of telling. I am and I loved the movie, but my sister despised it.
(warning, there can be some scary parts and this film was almost rated PG-13)

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif hopes and ALOT OF CONCERNS

Well first of all, in the book, the characters are all about 12 years old. The actor who plays Percy Jackson is 17. The actor who plays grover I think is 25 or 26. Annabeth is about 22.WOW. THE CASTERS PROBABLY DID NOT READ THIS BOOK. Lots of other factual errors from the book. My hopes are that they will get the scenes from the book correct such as the medusa scene, the casino scene, the mattress scene etc. In the trailer, it showed medusa so that scene will probably be their nice and long. Besides the 3 main characters, the rest of the casting looks good. Sets look well made and I love how they did Mount Olympis. Well, I will give a report when it comes out.

Despicable Me: Hopes and Concerns

This movie looks pretty funny but still I have my concerns. The plot looks interesting and it looks like it has some pretty funny characters, but I really hope that the main criminal doesn't turn out to help everybody and be nice and caring. I really hope that this will be great family movie like then these filmakers have done in the past (i.e. Ice Age, Horton hears a who etc). Now the people who made this did not give away alot about the plot, so you really don't know what to expect. I think it will turn out like a good comedic mystery, but who knows, it could be one of those movies filled with cheesey jokes and such. Well I'll go see this and give a report.
