Movies We Watch

Movie: Snow White and the Huntsman

One of our date nights, we decided to go watch this movie and it was amazing! Not so much the ending since they left it open-ended but it was all out action movie. Charlize Theron was outstanding as the stepmother and the twist and turns of this Snow White version left you guessing what would happen next. Snow White father was murdered by the new stepmother and put away in a cell forgotten until the stepmother needed her heart and the chase starts for Snow White but wait! They hired a huntsman to go search for the Snow White in the dark forest and the seven dwarfs are actually really cool! Snow White is my least favorite Disney princess, so this movie made her cool in my book.

4 Stars!

Movie: Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy

An excellent spy movie, if you like spy movies like I do. However, this movie moves slow to figure out who is the mole in a small spy government agency who is passing british secrets to the soviets. I had to wake up John several times during this movie. I couldn't believe he found it boring. I think it was amazing!

4 Stars!

Movie: Underworld Awakening

What a disappointing movie to follow the first two which were amazing. But we thought we would give it a chance since John is a fan of the first two. Clarice wakes up after twelve years being frozen after being captured by the humans as she escapes she figures out, she had become a mom whose daughter, the humans, have been utilizing as an experiment to make the Lycans powerful to beat out the vampires. It just doesn't work at all. She's a mom? really! ugh.

2 Stars.

Movie: Ghost Rider, Spirit of Vengeance

Another flop from the first Ghost Rider that wasn't too bad! Oh, and Nicolas Cage he's looking really old! You almost feel bad for him. Get another guy to play Ghost Rider, or just do over! Johnny Blaze has traveled across the world to control his curse and suddenly he is looking for the son of satan in exchange to find his soul. I couldn't wait for this movie to be OVER!  In fact, we were glad when it was over and Nicolas Cage needs to go back to drama, maybe playing the father of a trouble teenager or something.

1 Star.
