Actually looks pretty interesting. Check it out.

Contagion, This Could Happen

Contagion is a dramatic thriller about what happens in the CDC when a major epidemic occurs and how fear is spread. The movie was interesting as that none of the characters had a major roll, all were shown pretty equal and given equal amounts of development. This movie is more likely than a zombie outbreak and was really good.
The opening scene is Beth Emhoff (Gwyenth Paltrow) at an airport in Chicago coming from Hong Kong, looking a little sick. She gets a phone call from her secret affair and then gets on the plane. She arrives at her home in Minnesota to her son and husband, Mitch Emhoff (Matt Damon). Beth gets worse and then dies along with her son, but Mitch is immune. His daughter from another marriage comes to live with him. The CDC advisor, Dr. EllisCheever (Laurence Fishburne), sends doctors, Dr. Erin Mears (Kate Winslet) and Dr. Leonora Orantes (Marion Cotillard), to Minnesota and Hong Kong to investigate. They learn that the disease is bat and pig and has a very short incubation time. While a blogger, Alan Krumwiede (Jude Law), is creating some panic as he prescribes forsythia as a cure for the virus. The virus starts to spread and mutate and kills 29 million people. You watch as people struggle against the challenges of living with and around the virus. There is mass fear and riots and craziness everywhere.
This movie is pretty true to what happens when a public becomes paranoid and riots. Lots of people die and it makes you think of how viruses spread and how much you come in contact with these things. The movie is really intense and you get really nervous but it ends all happy (I was thinking there would be a twist and everyone would die). Shows what I know. The movie was rated PG-13 for disturbing content (dead and dying people) and some language. I suggest you check this out if you like plage stories.

Warrior, Holy Amazing

The movie Warrior has been under advertised but not under rated and if you see it, you will know why. This movie was incredible with great acting, great fight scenes, great story, and great everything. If you like good "sports" stories, MMA, good drama, and hot dudes, you should see this movie.
A young man, Tommy Conlon (Tom Hardy), comes home to his father, Paddy Conlon (Nick Nolte), that he hasn't seen in a very long time. Tommy left with his mother years earlier to escape his father's drunken abuse. Tommy's brother, Brendan (Joel Edgerton), is a physics teacher with a family who doesn't see his father either. Brendan used to fight MMA and goes back to fighting to try and stop the foreclosure on his house. Both brothers see the huge tournament that has come up, the Spartan Tournament. The tournament is a world wide bracket of 16 fighters where the winner gets 5 million dollars. Both train and get into the tournament where Tommy is a big contender and Brendan is the underdog. To to win, they have to fight some big and scary dudes, including a huge Russian that is slotted at number one.
The movie is full of family tension and fights. The brothers and the father all argue and fight each other with some sad things said (well I was sad). You eventually learn things about Tommy and why he is in the fight and Brendan learns things about his brother and father. At the end, you don't know who to cheer for, but come away with a warm heart. I loved this movie and I think you should go see it cause I have a feeling that it is going to win some awards.

The movie is rated PG-13 for fighting and some language.

Apollo 18, Freaky and Intense

Apollo 18, pretty freaky and very intense. I even let out a startled cry during the movie. "Decades-old found footage from NASA's abandoned Apollo 18 mission, where two American astronauts were sent on a secret expedition, reveals the reason the U.S. has never returned to the moon" (imdb.com). The alien weren't even your typical aliens, which was good. The movie was shot in the style of old film to give it a 1973 look.
Three astronauts were sent to space on Apollo 18 under classified and never made know to the public. The movie was edited from 80 hours of footage uploaded to the internet (I can't remember/find the site they referenced). Two of the men went down to the surface of the moon to setup listening posts (as they were told) to watch for Soviet missiles. In the movie, it points out movie rocks and weird things as they go along. Well the men find an abandoned Soviet lunar lander, evidence that the Russians had made it to the moon. They find the body of the Cosmonaut at the bottom of a crater and pull him up. They find a strangeish rock in a rip of his suit. Finishing their mission, as they are about to lift off, the power and communications cutoff and on. The communications remain off because the radio has been tipped over. As one of the men go out to fix it, he starts screaming and saying their is something inside his suit and goes down. The other man goes out to get him and bring him back in. They discover he was cut by something and has a rock under his skin in the cut and get it out (gross because one of the guys says that it starts moving). Anyways, they cant get off the surface and are having troubles while they guy who was cut starts to act crazy and gets sick.
This movie was super intense and crazy. I really liked it. There was a historical element and a horror element mixed together and the "aliens'' were not your typical aliens. The aliens were like spider/crab things and you never got a good look at them, which heightened the suspense of the movie. And one of the guys was pretty good looking, Warren Christie. The movie is rated PG-13 for like horror and brief language and intensity, probably not one for little ones.

New Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

It's about time I got around to this. It has been a hectic week movie back to school and my first week of school. But anyways... Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
The extremely creepy things are back and more extremely creepy than ever! With about 30 years of technology and Guillermo Del Tor (a gifted horror writer/director) writing the movie, you can bet the creepy things are going to be better.
As evidenced by this picture. (The only one I could find of the creepy things.)
This movie closely followed the original storyline with some tweaks and some historical elements thrown in to keep it grounded in some reality. One of the changes was to make the creepy things a bit less mysterious by making them gnome/fairies ("Get the fairies, Sam!" From Supernatural. That was all I could think about when they called them gnome/fairies). "A young girl is sent to live with her estranged father and his girlfriend at their new home. The father, Alex has plans to spruce up the home with the help of his interior decorator girlfriend, Kim. The previous owner of the home was a famous painter who mysteriously disappeared. Alex's daughter, Sally, soon discovers the cause of the painter's disappearance" (imdb.com). Over all, this movie was really creepy and good.
The movie starts out in the past as a maid is attending to a famous painter (by the name of Blackwood). He kills her and takes her teeth and his teeth and tries to use them to pacify the creepy things who have his son. The creepy things only want children's teeth and drag the painter down the hole. Then to the future as a young girl, Sally (Bailee Madison), is going to live with her father, Alex (Guy Pierce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes). Alex is an architect and is fixing up the home of the painter and Kim is the interior designer. Sally doesn't want to be there and doesn't really like Kim. As Sally is exploring the house, she finds that there is a hidden basement that turns out to be the workshop of Blackwood. In the basement is a chimney and Sally hears her name whispered through it by things. Well she opens it which unknowingly realises the creepy things. But the creepy things start creating mischief. Alex blames a lot of it on Sally, but Kim wants to connect with Sally and tries to get her to talk. Well it sort of works and Alex gets a psychologist to talk to Sally. Sally tells the psychologist that there are creatures in the house that are doing all the things Kim starts to believe her. Well Kim does research to find out what is going on with the house so the creepy things don't take Sally.
This movie was really good and creepy and not retarded like the old one. In this movie, people aren't helpless and retarded against the creepy things, but the creepy things are faster and clever and take out people. This movie is rated R for violence and terror (as you can expect from a Del Tor movie). The violence comes from the creepy things cutting up and and practically killing a carpenter and from Kim's leg being broken the wrong way (which you see for an instance and it's gross). So not a little children's movie in the aspect. Still a must see if you like horror movie and stuff like this.
