Midnight in Paris - 10/10 - Got this movie on Blue-Ray for Christmas and watched it for the second time. First and foremost this movie is absolutely beautiful in high definition. It captures the physical beauty of Paris like no other film I have ever seen. Also, the two main themes of the movie are explored in a creative and thoroughly enjoyable fashion. As of right now my favourite movie of the year.
Hot Coffee - 9/10 - One of the better documentaries I have ever watched. It takes a look into the case of the woman who sued McDonald's for burning herself with their coffee. The movie effectively shows how the public (including myself) wrongfully condemned this woman paving the way for American citizens losing all power to get rightful compensation if they experience wrong doing at the hands of a corporation.
Fast Five - 5/10 - I am not the target audience of this movie. It seems like a more coherently put together instalment than the previous three. However, it remains a mindless action flick for those who love beautiful cars and epic chases. If your fan of the series there is a lot of "nostalgia" that may make this the best film in the series for you.
Win-Win - 8/10 - An all around good film. I majored in Justice Studies and appreciate films that illustrate how the family environment can drastically alter a child's life. This film effectively portrays how we can condemn a kid for poor choices when they were just dealt a losing hand and given better parenting they could have achieved great things.
Crazy Stupid Love - 6/10 - The film has a hard time balancing the drama and the comedy. It has a interesting relationship between Steve Carrel and Juliana Moore's characters. It just gets lost in characters doing outrageous things in the name of comedy. If the comedy works for you, this could be a very enjoyable film.
30 Seconds or Less - 8.5/10 - I thought this movie was fun and hilarious. Surprisingly, I found many of the scenarios here to be much more likely than ones that occurred in Crazy Stupid Love.
127 Hours - 10/10 - This is the second time I watched this movie. Like Midnight in Paris, this movie is beautiful in Blue-Ray. It is a true story that is effectively portrayed through film. My favourite movie from 2010 and one of the most motivating true stories of all time.
Cowboys and Aliens - 3/10 - The opening scene was extremely entertaining. It just became boring right after it. I will have to watch it again to see if maybe I just wasn't in the right mood.
The Hangover 2 - 6/10 - I was expecting to hate this movie. I ended up finding it funny. Not as good as the first time around but this sequel has its moments. It knows the type of film it is and embraces it.
