    Office Space - 4/10

    eh, I had bad feelings that it'd be a cheap rip off of The Office but I kept reading good reviews on it and decided to give it a try cause I was bored and it actually ended up worse than I expected.

    Office Space came out in 1999 so it's actually not a rip off, lol.

    -Zack and Miri Make a Porno (10/10)

    Hysterical! The ending was so sweet. <33

    -Forgetting Sarah Marshall (8/10)

    -Candy (10/10)

    One of the most depressing movies I have ever seen. Fantastic performances by Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish. Wow.

    haha yah i actually found that out shortly after saying that... well than i guess this movie probably served as some influence for the show which is cool and all but my opinion still stays... i actually regretted paying the 3 bucks or whatever to rent it on itunes...

    Crank (2006)
    8/10

    Frickin hilarious and entertaining as hell. It would be a definite 9/10 if it weren't for the sudden change of pace as the film made it's transition onto the final act.

    The Strangers (7/10)

    Weird horror film. Didn't make much sense. It was OK, though.

    Sea of Fear (1/10)

    I gave it a one just because I felt bad.

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (9/10)

    Man, I saw The Beginning first, and it totally helped understand what the hell was going on. Awesome movie.

    Flawless 8/10 felt kinda old to me but Michael Cane was amazing.

    Eagle Eye 8/10 thrilling

    Monty Python LOL 5/10 beginning was good but the end kinda let me down. Pretty funny though.

    Marley & Me (2008)
    9/10

    I actually really really love this film. I saw it with my girlfriend a few hours ago. Do not let the trailer fool you, there's a lot more to the film than meets the eye. Not a 'chick flick' by any means. A very moving tale. See it, guys & girls.

    Wow ive been having movie marathons lately...

    Garden State - 9/10 Funny & touching. I think Nadalie Portman makes the most annoying yet adorable girlfriend ever and I love this everytime I see it.

    Momento - 9/10 Such a great movie. Comes from the makers of the prestige, about a guy who has short term memory loss and forgets everything he did the prior day but is trying to solve his wifes murder. I highly recomend this to anyone who loves twisting and psychological movies.

    The Usual Suspects - 7/10 I thought the ending was really great, mostly because i figured it out within 10 mins of the movie and yet they managed to convince me I was totally wrong... but the rest of the movie was just average.

    Watching Gran Torino tomorrow night.

    -Pineapple Express

    -Milk (10/10)

    My God, what a powerful film. The performances by Sean Penn, James Franco and Emile Hirsch are extraordinary. A must see!

    Gran Torino - Clint Eastwood's last performance as an actor. He made it a good one. His performance is the best part of the story. It's a good film, but not great. It has a mixture of funny and serious moments and a few tough moments.

    Valkyrie
    - Based on the true story of the last attempt to kill Hitler by people within the German military that did not believe in Hitler's cause. Tom Cruise has a pretty good performance in here and it has a good cast. It was an interesting perspective on this and had good moments. It was a pretty good movie.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - Feels a bit like Forrest Gump. It has a story of a man who goes through history and love story that spans throughout it. It's a little long to sit through so for those who have a hard time sitting still for nearly 3 hours, not your movie. It was well made.

    Frost/Nixon - The old people in the theater must have been like "wth?" when I walked in (since everyone else was probably 40+ in age). I thought it was a better movie that I expected. It was entertaining and I did not find myself bored.

    Slumdog Millionaire - My favorite of the bunch. It was well made. The story of a kid on India's Who Wants to be a Millionaire. He explains who he's able to answer each question through his telling the story of his life, growing up in the slums. And it has a nice love story in it as well.

    To be honest I didn't like the movie that much either, but it fits the book - they're walking around in the day because it's supposed to be almost permanently overcast in Forks. Therefore no sunlight, no exposing them.
