Water for Elephants.

So I saw the film ‘Water for Elephants.' *Yawn* I wanted Robert Pattinson to turn into a vampire. Now THAT would have been a story... I didn't read the novel. Robert Pattinson plays a vampire in the Twilight Saga - hate to pigeonhole but he should stick to that. Circuses aren’t my thing and this type of nostalgia isn’t my thing either. Like in Titanic (which I liked) an elderly person – this time a man - recounts his tragic past. I honestly didn’t care and had no sympathy for the bland and flat characters.

A film review of ‘Passenger Side.’

I saw the film ‘Hanna’ with high expectations. Oh, well. Weak plot with many holes in it. It either needed to flesh out her origins or add an extra dimension. Heavy-handed, simplistic symbolism. It kicks ass that a young girl stars in an action thriller but unfortunately, it’s not enough. Skip it.

Ok – here’s what I think about yum-fun ‘Thor’. Cinematography and Audio fabulous. Kenneth Branagh is a good director. Unique story-true to the myth. Severe eye-candy.
