Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

They just don't make movies this funny anymore. And there are pretty much no good spoofs now-a-days. But, when you go back, you can find probably the greatest spoof ever and possibly one of the best comedies ever. This sacreligous comedy shows the farcical tale of King Arthur, from the 'cocunut' scene all the way to the chapter oddly called 'The End of the Film'. If you have a sense of humor, and want to see effects so bad that they're funny, (seriously, the blood is frickin' pink) go see Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010)

This is the first film adaptation of the highly popular children's book series Percy Jackson and the Olympians, written by Rick Riordan. And I have to say, they did a pretty good job with it! This movie packs action, jokes, and monster special effects that only $95 million can buy. This movie did a very good adaptation of the book, which made me happy. However, there was a ton of stuff that they took out and added in. (but for all you people in my hometown of Nashville, I'm just fine with the Parthenon scene. It did not upset me one bit) The plot differs, and you wonder how the series will keep up like this, because if Sea of Monsters comes out, there's going to be a lot that they'll have to change to set things straight. (but, it is official already. 2012 for the next one. Cross your fingers that it'll be good!) Overall, for any person that wants a little action, this flick is the absolute perfect early 2010 film to see. The action is intense, however, and is very pushy and intense for a PG love that. Ha, ha.

I, Robot (2004)

One of my personal favorite movies of all time is I, Robot. This shows the story of a mysterious cop who believes that all robots are evil and tries to destroy them and show that they are evil. This entire movie is filled with action and suspense, but the best scene in my opinion is the "You are experiencing a car accident" scene. Pure sci-fi robots-go-evil gold. Don't be shocked. You saw it coming. The plot could be confusing to younger viewers, but really, younger viewers shouldn't be watching this anyway. So you should be doing good. Overall, this film is non-stop action, adventure, and edge-of-your seat thrills. Possibly one of the best robot films ever made.

Avatar (2009)

The biggest movie of the year (and possibly the decade) has hit KidViews. This science-fiction epic has action, suspense, and a love story (blach!) in just a 2hr. and 40min. package. It's long, but keeps you in the movie so that you don't get bored. In fact, most people won't be able to keep their eyes off of the screen. This movie is a must see in 3D, and the effects have will have you blown away. However, the story is a bit weak and overdone. However, if you want to go see the single movie that has beaten Titanic, head on down and go watch the big blue people in Avatar.
