There is little to no dialog for the first half or so of the film, but it still manages to draw you in. WALL-E is probably one of the best movies of the year. It has wonderful characters, a good strong plot, beautiful animation and backgrounds, and it works on enough levels to keep adult sci-fi nerds interested (that would be myself included). The fate of humanity in WALL-E will hopefully make people take a look at their lives and the way we treat not only the Earth but also our own bodies. The way WALL-E lives should gives us hope and remind us to enjoy the wonder that is our world.
I gotta say that this movie had a theater full of 20 and 30 somethings on the edge of their seats and not making a sound. Go see this movie.

Unlike most Bond movies I've seen, this one doesn't do much for me. Yes, today i have decided to post how much i absolutely hate this movie. Basically this movie has no right whatsoever to be a Bond movie. Ok, so we'll start off with the actor Timothy Dalton. I'm not saying I knew how men were considered "steamy' in the late 80's, but this guy, Oh MY GOD! He is the worst looking man i have ever seen! personally i would like to take a razor blade to his face to make it look prettier. why? why would they hire a guy like him? hu? erg.
Another thing that drove me up the wall was how it was night, darkness created shadow for Bond to infiltrate and sneak around, but then, BAM! the lights came on and it was mid day! how on earth??
Another problem that i had was the relationship between Bond and Lupe Lamora, Sanchez's girlfriend. Near the end of the movie, they talk about the relationship they had and all the "things" they did together. Unless there was some off-camera smoochin', all the "things" they did together consisted of talking, and threatening with a knife, and perhaps some black jack.
Now i go back to Dalton. Yeah yeah i know that bond always gets the girls, but ew, who in their right mind would fall for the lack there of charm of him...
And what was up with him? he was like on his man period or something. Major attitude adjustment. while watching, I'm pretty sure i said "That's not Bond", or "The new Bond would've killed them"or"he would've shot faster" and so on.
Anyway, apart from all of those things that sucked, the movie just sucked in general. The plot was ok, the script was ok, the actors...not so much.
My favorite part would have to be the part with Q that lasted about 2 minuets.
so that's it. hope you enjoyed it! haha yeah right.

It went way into detail about Anikin's feelings, and how the struggle with himself ended badly. I would defiantly recommend this book to any Star Wars fan.
Basically if you've seen the movie, you know the plot of the book.
The only thing that got me was the surprise ending! I had no idea that Anikin became Vader!!! XD

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is thoroughly, exuberantly, with out a shadow of a doubt... pretty decent. While it's no Last crusade, and certainly no Lost Ark, it comes far ahead of that affront to all that is holy, Temple of Doom (with the possible exception of Short Round, who I'm convinced is the coolest person since Jeebus himself.)
This movie that I really don't have time to spell out all the way, opens strong. The first twenty minutes are pretty cool, with some good old fashioned betrayal, and beating up commies. At this point, I was asking myself "What could possibly go wrong?" Then Shia Leboeuf shows up. My philosophy of "Never trust anyone with more than five vowels in his name" is proven correct. When he shows up, positively dripping with hair gel, the movie goes on a downward spiral for the next twenty or so minutes. Towards the last section of those twenty minutes, I was convinced that Shia was the anti-christ himself. It pains me when directors hire pretty-boy disney stars in order to draw the youth audience, especially when it involves Shia, Ashley Tissdale or Miley Cyrus, who is Satan, cleverly disguised as Hannah Montana.
But then, Marion shows up, and all is right with the cosmos.
If you're gonna see this movie, DO NOT go in thinking "Last Crusade" or "Lost Ark" You WILL be dissapointed. Instead, walk into the theatre thinking "Temple of Doom." You will be pleasently surprised.
NO TIME FOR LOVE, DOCTOR JONES!!!
