Movies: Let's Review
Looking for something to do this weekend? Had a long run and now can't get off the couch? Maybe these will keep you entertained.
Sometimes I love Katherine and sometimes she annoys the heck out of me. She was okay in this. The movie was quick and entertaining though I found her hard to believe as a bounty hunter. I wouldn't cry a river if you miss it.
This movie went from suspenseful to completely terrifying in about two seconds. I am not up on the whole Aliens movies and I guess this is a prequel to those. Even with my lack of knowledge I was sucked in. This movie is scary so not for little people or big people alone in a dark room. I thought the concept was interesting and those who have seen and are a fan of the Alien movies (assuming there is more than one at this point) will probably enjoy it more. I would give this movie an ehh...maybe.
Speaking of Snow White, Mirror Mirror is the other Snow White movie that came out at exactly the same time as the other one so no one would blame you if were confused about why Snow White seemed to be everywhere. Unlike the other Snow White this one is a less dark, more comical take on the story full of Nathan Lane and a dance number and a brilliant Julia Roberts. I would say it is worth a watch if you are a Julia fan, she does a nice job as the evil queen. There is a cheese factor here and I would say this movie more closely resembles the Disney version and is more kid friendly then the other. If I had to pick one or the other I would go with Snow White & the Huntsman, but both are entertaining enough to watch.
