Four Movie Reviews

The first of four was "Austin Powers: Goldmember". I thought it was okay, it had the same basic jokes and gross out humor. I really wasn't in the mood for it when I saw it and this is probably why I gave it the grade I did. If you liked the first two you will also enjoy it.

Next I saw the spy action movie, "XXX". The action sequences in the movie were great, not always realistic, but most of the time somewhat possible. It was very similar to a James Bond film, but with a more hip and updated character, because seriously do you think there are spies out there still wearing tuxedoes in the field. The movie did drag on a bit with a run time somewhere near two hours, but if your in the mood for a great action movie check it out.

"Signs", was hyped quite a bit and I don't really want to give away too much about it, but let's just say, the previews make you think the main story is one thing, while all along the aliens are really just a separate more minor storyline. I think most people felt this to be unnerving and have passed on a bad word of mouth, when once again it is just M. Night throwing a curveball our way.

The most recent movie I saw was "Blue Crush", this surfer film was entertaing, it had it all, action, girls, a bit of a love story, domestic struggles and humor. Overall it wasn't too bad, definitely a good date movie, because there is a little bit for everybody in the movie.
