I rented this movie right after Brittany Murphy died so it was a little weird to watch. Kind of like watching Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.

So sad.

Murphy's character is a writer and has a deadline that she needs to meet so she decides to isolate herself in a huge house in the woods. (Hello? Typical scary movie). She is also hiding from her ex boyfriend who just got out of jail for doing something that you will find out in the movie.

While working alone, she starts wondering the house and happens upon a box of home video tapes of the couple that lived in the house a few years back. As she becomes obsessed with these videos and staying alone in the house, she starts to see and hear things that aren't really there.

And you'll have to watch it to figure out what is reality and what isn't! LOL


LOST Season 5

On to season 5 on DVD.

*Spoiler alert*

Is anyone else a little weirded out about a disappearing island?


Fame (2009)

I've never seen the original version of Fame so I can't make a comparison, but I can comment on my likes and dislikes of the new version.

Likes: Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing.

Dislikes: Don't get me wrong, I love Kherington (Season 4 So You Think You Can Dance) but I don't think her talent was portrayed very will in this movie. The plot line was predictable, just like all other dance movies but hey, who is watches it for the plot?

Just watch it for the talent and you will enjoy it!

Hurt Locker

Hurt Locker is a war film, but it portrays the Iraq war in almost a documentary type of fashion. It is true to life, at least they say it is, and it's not your typical shoot'em up war movie.

It is more of a drama with a few riveting moments. It was more interesting to me than exciting. It shows what really goes on with our troops over seas.


The Book of Eli

Hmmmm, I can't say if I like this film or not. Alex hated it. It was a little far fetched in the end and sort of a "Joseph Smithy" type of situation to it.

I get it, but it was pretty much shoved down my throat.

There is a lot of cool action scenes, and who doesn't like Denzel Washington? I'd say just wait for the DVD to see it.


Paranormal Activity

I finally watched it! I've been wanting to watch this movie ever since it was in theatres but nobody would go with me. Well, I guess by nobody I mean Albert. He hates scary movies. So I waited and waited until it came out on DVD.

So one night when I couldn't sleep, I got up and watched it at 3 in the morning. It freaked me out! I loved it!

You have to watch it in the dark!


Lost Season 4

I know, I am so behind on Lost!

Forgive me.


Julie & Julia

I'm not sure what category this movie falls into. I guess the closest would be chick flick, but it wasn't your normal fall-in-love-break-up-get-back-together chick flick. This one was all about FOOD!

Beware, after you watch this you will get the urge to eat, and cook, and EAT.

I am so hungry right now.


Sherlock Holmes

I guess this show was good, or so my husband tells me. For some reason I didn't really follow the plot very well so by the end I was a little confused. If you watch it, make sure you pay attention!

But I got to watch Robert Downey Junior so it was worth it!
