WALL-E

8.5/10, good movie, somewhat slow at times, would have been higher if not for my incredibly high expectations out of pixar

The Incredible Hulk 8/10
-I'm a huge Ed Norton fan, I'd say it was comparable to Iron Man. It didn't really drag out, pretty good acting, I never read the comic books so I can't attest to how closely the movie mirrors the book but I really enjoyed it.

The Love Guru 5.5/10
-I didn't think it was as bad as most people did. I laughed out loud a few times, I definitely agree it's not as good as Austin Powers, but it wasn't terrible. I thought the Zohan was a little better though.

No country for old men - 8/10, Not of a lot of talking in the movie but it is a very interesting movie.

Lucky # Slevin- 6.5/10, At first the movie was really hard to follow. I had no idea what was going on, but once I knew what was going on it was pretty good.

Inside Man- 9.5/10, One of the best movies I have seen in a long time.

Saw Capote last night. I'll give it a 5/10. I already knew much of the story of Truman Capote and "non-fiction novels" from communications classes at OSU, and this movie failed to make it all that interesting. Philip Seymour Hoffman seemed good, but having never seen a real life interview with Capote I don't know if it was worthy of best actor or not. I have read that the portrayal of him in Infamous (Which came out a year later) was actually better.

The sound editing in this movie was terrible. We constantly had to adjust the dial on the speakers because we couldn't hear the characters in a lot of scenes and then one scene later we'd have to yank it down because the music, sound effects, or even just dialogue was unbelievably loud.

For a movie that ran at like 110 minutes, it played MUCH longer than that. There were a lot of scenes that I felt did not propel the plot and could have easily been airlifted out and all you would have missed was more of Capote bragging about his book.

Snakes On A Plane - 7/10

I think some panned it here a long time ago. It really worked for me. The CG snakes weren't that bad 98% of the time. Great gruesomeness, too. I was expecting something bad but it definitely surprised.

Still can't tell is Julianna Margolies is pretty or not.

I saw Adam Corolla's The Hammer last night. Not really sure what rating to give it. Have to mull it over lol. It was WAY tamer then I expected from Corolla. However, he is really good in it and despite being tame it is extremely funny. The downside is that it's extremely formulaic so during the dramatic parts you get bored because you know exactly how everything fits together and how it will pan out.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Wall-E
8.5/10

Its hard to rank it on Pixars list because Pixar is just fantastic...
The thing that made it awesome was all the kids, crazy comments in the theater.

But Wall-E is good and Pixar is just on fire when it comes to its movies.

My wife and I don't do kids movies too much but I'll never forget seeing the newer Willy Wonka movie with Depp and just seeing the reaction of a theatre full of kids go crazy each time the Oompa Loompas ran out to do another song and dance. THAT was worth the price of admission.

Wall-e is rated 9.3 on IMDB which would be the best ranking for any movie ever. Course, it doesn't have many votes yet and will come down. Still, obviously lots of people love it so far.
