MOVIES to watch

"Star Trek" Namelia-J's Pick

The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James Kirk, is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock, was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before.

We Think: I have never watched Star Trek before. Really. Okay, maybe I did, when I was a toddler, but that doesn't count since I hardly remember it. Anyways, I can see why Trekkies were excited about this movie. It has a nice blend of action and even some humour in it. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie. And I think that James Kirk (Chris Pine. You might remember him from Just My Luck) is adorable. :3

"Night at The Museum 2"

When the Museum of Natural History is closed for upgrades and renovations, the museum pieces are moved into federal storage at the famous Washington Museums. The centerpiece of the film will be bringing to life the Smithsonian Institution, which houses the world's largest museum complex with more than 136 million items in its collections, ranging from the plane Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams) flew on her non-stop solo flight across the Atlantic and Al Capone's (Jon Bernthal) rap sheet and mug shot to Dorothy's ruby slippers, Fonzie's jacket from Happy Days, the still from M*A*S*H and Archie Bunker's lounge chair from All in the Family. With a forwarded resume, Larry (Ben Stiller) becomes another caretaker at the Smithsonian, where Kahmunrah, an evil Pharaoh will come to life with the reestablishing of a tablet as a magical force in the museum bringing the old exhibits (Such as Theodore Roosevelt and Dexter) and new exhibits (like General Custer and Al Capone) back to life, and in conflict with each other. Larry enlists the help of Amelia Earheart, who he develops a romantic interest in, and together they try to put everything back in order.

We Think: A very ordinary movie with nothing to rave about. There are some funny parts in it, I give you that.

"It's a Boy Girl Thing"

The next door neighbors Nell Bedworth and Woody Deane have opposite behaviors and hate each other: the virgin geek Nell is polite, sensitive and well-prepared to go to Yale, while Woody is rude and his greatest expectation is to join a mediocre university due to his abilities playing football. When Nell and Woody are assigned to visit together a museum, they argue in front of the statue of an Aztec god. During the night, their souls swap bodies, bringing difficult situations to them. They first try to damage the reputation of the other in the high-school, but sooner they discover that their dream of joining college would only happen with mutual respect and support.

We Think: This movie, while predictable, was enjoyable. It is just like every other teen movie, but that doesn't mean that it is bad. In fact, I found it very funny. I loved the part where the girl woke up in the guy's body and found that she had 'morningwood'. Hilarious. XD

"X-Men Origins: Wolverine"
"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" tells the story of Wolverine's epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.

We Think: This movie was awesome! I loved everything about it; from the graphics to the plot to everything. Especially the graphics. However, I think that the previous X-Men movies are better, but Wolverine tied it all up nicely. - "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" review by Natasha
