Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009)

'Better than the first!' 'Completely amazing!' These are some of the quotes that I've made up when thinking of this movie. It is a lot better than the super awesome first Night at the Museum film. It takes place at the biggest museum in the world, the Smithsonian. This movie is so good, and if you watch NBC, some familier faces will be seen in the Air and Space Museum. The animation is great, the animals (yes, there are now two slapping monkeys) are hysterical, amd this movie is just great. I would recommend for anybody to watch this, and you would thank me. A good family movie to watch, this is one good movie.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)

Ha-ha! This is a movie that is a pure, cursing classic. It is so super duper funny, and that's it in a nutshell. I love this film. Matthew Broderick at his earliest, this is a super funny very hysterical hilarious movie. An ode to skipping school, this '86 flick is great. Awesome. I can't even stress how funny this movie is. And I especially like it when the characters take notice of the camera. That always goes for some extra laughs. This is a great movie, which is PG-13 for a reason. But it still is so so so so so (X 4000) funny. I love this movie. So much. Wow.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (1988)

I love this movie. When my mom saw this movie in the theatres, she saw it sixteen more times. And if you watch ten minutes of this classic, you will know why. It is the definition of hysterical. It is a superbly dated classic, but it is still super funny. It is about two high school underachievers, Bill S. Preston and Ted (Theodore) Logan who spend so much time forming a rock band, Wyld Stallyns, that they're failing history. Then comes Rufus, a time-traveling guy from 2688. He comes so the group can pass the report and let the band live. This movie is along the lines of 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' 'Blades of Glory' and 'Dumb and Dumber.' This is a movie to say, buy! Buy! BUY! I love this movie and so should everybody else that watches it. It is just so darn funny. I will hit you in the face if you do not like this movie. In other words, I shall hit no one. Adios!

Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005)

This was also a movie my school watched. However, this one wasn't so bad. Steve Martin is great, along with the other famous children in this movie. (Lindsey Lohan, Alyson Stoner, etc.) This is a very funny film, and that's about all you can say to it. It's not the greatest movie ever, but it is funny. It is a movie about two families who go to a lake and do a contest. It has some hysterical moments, and it is a very good family movie. That's about it. Adios!

Star Trek (2009)

Two words: Good movie. Star Trek was just amazing. Now, you can probably say that I am a geek because I am drawn to a science-fiction film like a moth is to light. Now, this movie is action packed, and another reason I enjoyed it was because the person that plays Sylar on the NBC show Heroes plays Spock. The SFX are amazing, and the movie does have its share of very funny parts. This is just a really good movie. This is one of the summer movies of '09 that will stay in people's minds until the remake of Transformers comes out. (and probably long past then) I really think that this is a close to perfect movie, and it is so totally awesome!
P. S. As of yesterday, I am now eleven! Woo, hoo!

RV (2006)

RV is a very good family movie to watch...if you're seven. I really didn't want to watch this, but my class was watching it and I was bored, so...this is it. By the way, I was really bored. I played a game of chess in the middle of the movie. Now, it does have its funny parts, so it's not totally a useless movie. It's just...semi-useless. The racoon and spewing sewage parts are the funniest parts, but those are the most laughs you'll get. I would not recommend this for any kid over ten. And the saddest part is is that I love Robin Williams and Josh Hutcherson, but you have to have a good plot for a good movie, not just good actors. It's just really not that funny.

The Producers (2005)

I love musicals. I love comedies. I love comedy-musicals. This movie is good. It's about two guys "who should be in straight jackets" that start a show on Broadway that's sure to be a flop, then raise a lot of money, then close the show and run off to Rio with the cash. They pick 'Springtime for Hitler', which is written by a Nazi. The songs are great, the story is comedy gold, and Matthew Broderick (Leo Bloom), who is one of my favorite actors, does great along with Will Ferrel (Franz Liebkind) and Nathan Lane (Max Bialystock). I really like this movie. It's good, but quite innapropriate. It has some very catchy songs in it, and the humor is great. As a caveman would say: Matt, Nate, movie, songs, funny, good!

Tarzan (1999)

This movie is just cute. It's a musical adventure about a jungle guy raised by gorillas who has an encounter with 'the real human world' when some adventurers come by. In these is Jane, the girl who falls in love with Tarzan when he saves her butt from some very angry monkeys. (one, of which, is very memorable) The movie is rated G, but parental guidance suggested. (sort of) It has that 'peril' and 'mild action' junk that really means nothing, but I just want you all to be okay. (and I also don't want angry parents on my tail) This is a Disney movie, so you know it'll be awesome. It is a very good family movie, so enjoy Tarzan!

The King and I (1956)

The classic Rogers and Hammerstein musical, The King and I, was made into a movie, and so here's it's review. The songs almost have almost the exact same tune as the songs in the musical The Sound of Music, but they still warm your heart. The story is very moving, and it is a movie that pretty much all people will cry at the sadness and the wonder. The songs are lovely, the story is heartwarming, the acting for all of the people and the six hundred children in it is amazing, and the movie did win 5 Oscars. This is definitely not the 'action flick of the 50s.' I don't even know if there is an 'action flick of the 50s.' This is an almost perfect movie for that 'family movie night', as it is rated G. Hum the tunes, do a jig, and pop in the disc!

Jurassic Park (1993)

Jurassic Park is not a movie that starts off with a mysterious and omnimous feel like some great movies, but it does wow you like no other movie could. It is a wonderous spectacle for the first hour, looking at the amazing CGI this movie has. And just about then, the action picks up. Some security lines are breached, it starts raining, and a t-rex conquers an electric fence. These are the steps that lead to the cool part of the Steven Speilberg flick. (not that the previous part isn't cool) And here's a tip for some of the characters in the movie: dinosaurs don't play fetch. This movie does have its funny parts, so you can laugh a bit. And sometimes the action is so great that the ginger ale will drop straight out of your hand. And right when you think that the movie is calming down, it speeds right back up again. It's a Speilberg film, so we all know that it'll rock. But this is no average Speilberg film. This is one of Speilberg's greatest.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

A 1979 classic movie with 1984 graphics. No surprise. However, the movie is quite impressive. The first twenty-five minutes almost seemed to drag on for me, but then it picked up the pace, and I realize why it has 10 sequels. This movie is full of 'wham', 'bam', and 'oh, snap, that's awesome!' And of course, it ends with a special effects spectacle. In the movie, the Enterprise crew battles against wormholes, aliens, and a feaky bald probe lady. In short, for a 30-year-old movie, this isn't half bad. Now, this is no Star Wars, but it's pretty darn close. Like 9.22 to 10 close. This is a movie to buy without haste, but at least rent it. I personally believe that this movie rocks. So, live long and prosper!

X-Men Origins Wolverine (2009)

There is obviously a lot of work put into Wolverine. It puts some smiles on your face, and if you are looking for a flick that has an acceptable story and an almost ridiculous amount of Hugh Jackman kicking people’s cans, Wolverine is the movie to see. If you have a lot of extra movie money, and you want a semi-cheesy x-men spin-off, this is the movie to see. The special effects are very high, the story is so-so, but it does fill in pretty much all of the gaps left by the first X-men film. This movie is worth seeing, unless you are waiting for the absolute right movie to see. This is not it.
