In Time

I can dig it! This movie will tend to be hated by the haters, by the mere fact that it stars *Nsync headliner, Justin Timberlake, but this movie has a message that can live on for a million years. It actually made me think about the value of time and how we are not meant to waste it. Living is right outside your door. It’s a great fun movie for a Saturday night.

Puss in Boots

Lacking in the pop culture creativeness that warmed so many hearts to the land of Far Far Away, this movie is only meant to be enjoyed by a younger crowd. In silliness and deliberate predictability, it’s a winner. However, Antonio Banderas is always a joy to hang out with, and Puss in Boots will be an enjoyable adventure to anyone under the age of 11 and those young at heart, who can enjoy the romance of a noble quest.

The Three Musketeers

Mind blowing sword fights and captivating personalities makes this a wonderful film to capture. Although not as classically wrapped as 1993's Disney version, this enthralling adventure will take you on a ride that only your inner old cynic will have the gull to critique. 8/10 for you'd have to be soulless to criticize young Logan Lerman's fierce-fully committed performance as the novice embodiment of the greatest Musketeer that ever was, d'Artagnan. I truly believed he actually had the skill to take on 10 of the cardinal's guards without breaking a sweat at 15.

The only downfall of the film is that it only has two major sword fights, when there should be at least 5, throwing the film out of whack.  However, the film is set up as, only, the first story of an unfinished tale. Hence, you can look forward that this is only the beginning of an impressive lore, with a greater depth, that will have your inner child wishing we were back in 1625, ready to die for the things we love and believe in. Go enjoy!
