Movie Review Time

Ok lately I've seen a few new movies thanks to Netflix. Here is a review of them for you all!
Eagle Eye
Returning home after the shocking death of his overachieving twin brother, an aimless slacker named Jerry (Shia LaBeouf) finds himself inexplicably linked to notorious terrorist cell. Now, with the nation's law enforcement agencies hunting them down, Jerry and single mother Rachel (Michelle Monoghan) -- who's also been framed -- must work around the clock to thwart a political assassination and clear their names in the process.

This movies was awesome! DZ and I thought it was very good in that it wasn't super crazy suspenseful (which is good cause I'm a wuss with that kind of stuff) but yet it had enough twists and turns to keep you enthralled. Shia LaBeouf did a great job - I was kinda worried that I would only see him in his Transformers role but nope he did a good job. We both liked it quite a bit and would totally recommend it.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 1 & 2
Bridget (Blake Lively), Lena (Alexis Bledel), Tibby (Amber Tamblyn) and Carmen (America Ferrera) are four friends that find a magical pair of pants that fit all of them so they use the 'power' of the pants to keep their friendship alive when they are separated.

I liked them both - they were good 'fluffy' movies that had a nice message. I couldn't say that they were for everyone but I liked them.

Definitely, Maybe
Interested in knowing how her divorcing parents met, young Maya (Abigail Breslin) listens as her dad, Will (Ryan Reynolds), recounts his romantic past with three different and special women: Emily (Elizabeth Banks), April (Isla Fisher) and Summer (Rachel Weisz) -- leaving Maya to guess which one is her mom. Kevin Kline makes an appearance in writer-director Adam Brooks's tender tale of father-daughter bonding and lost love.

This movie was so warm and endearing and I just loved it. It was funny but still had the whole date night romance thing going on. Not really a guy movie but your girl will like that you watched it with her anyway! Check it out you won't be disappointed!

Based on Stephenie Meyer's best-selling novel, Twilight follows the saga of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who moves to a small town to live with her father. At school, she meets Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a mysterious classmate who reveals himself to be a 108-year-old vampire. Despite his cautions, Bella falls in love with Edward, which endangers her life when a coven of bloodsuckers arrives to challenge Edward and his family.

Ok I totally LOVED this - not a surprise to those that have seen it I'm sure. I was a little hesitant because I'm not really into the whole vampire thing. Honestly I only put it on our queue because of the craze over the BOOKS - I'm really really really into finding and reading good book series and since this one has gotten so much hype and has spawned some obsession type things I decided to check it out. I'm glad I did cause it was awesome and a nice friend of mine is lending me the books so that I can devour them! I read little bits on the authors website and I just know that I'm going to love the way she writes. I'm actually excited about it! lol If you haven't seen it well you should!
