Marley and Me. 7/10 seems too high, 6/10 seems too low. Probably a 5/10 if you're not a dog person. Has a lot of great moments and is well-acted but it is also terribly drawn out.

The Reader. 7/10. I never read the book but I plan to now because seeing this movie felt like I almost saw something great. Maybe the book will deliver. But the movie loses it's way when it gets to the trial.

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

the prestige 7/10

pretty good flick with a solid ending. i wasnt too "tricked" but i suppose some were. it would have received higher but there were a few things that just didnt add up all the way through. scarlett was as hot as ever. ;-D

Rock Star- 9/10

Quite possibly my favorite movie. Many of you may think I`m overrating it with a near perfect score but I can honestly say i do not care. I love mark wahlburg, and I love this movie :-)

Wait, first you said he is on your list, but there isn't really a list? I'd much rather know you have a man crush on 2-3 different people than knowing that it's just on 1........

Wall-E: 10/10 (again)

The Dark Knight: 9.75/10

In repeat viewing, it loses points for some silly, not-quite-believable dialogue, like "Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight." Dramatic, yes, but only in the right context, like a journal entry-type thing plus a voiceover. In dialogue it just sounds silly. Also, what led Coleman Reese to connect Bruce Wayne to Batman? The Batman-Wayne Industries connection is obvious but it's a pretty big leap to go straight to Bruce. And what of the employees working underneath Lucius Fox? How are they unaware? And if they are aware, how are they trustworthy? It was much simpler in other iterations where Bruce Wayne just spent 10 years building everything himself. Those two things bug me now.
