The story is about a young Viking (Hiccup - yes that is really his name) that wants to win his father's acceptance and woo the heart Astrid, another dragon hunter-in-the-making, by fighting and killing dragons. He learns a lot about the dragons he is getting ready to slaughter and in the end his friends and father learn a lot of valuable lessons too. Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson and America Ferrara are a few of the voices that bring the characters to life.
A must see at an IMAX theater near you! A word of caution, if your children are easily frightened you may want to skip this movie.

"The Lightning Thief" is an entertaining movie with a good story line and fabulous special effects. If you go, don't take little children. The movie may be rated PG but with characters like Medusa, (Uma Thurman - with real snakes in her hair) it is too scary for children. It is similar to Harry Potter movies in many ways so if you like Harry, you'll probably like Percy (Logan Lerman). Percy Jackson is the demigod son of Poseidon and better looking than Harry Potter. Peirce Brosnan is the half man half horse, Chiron. This is a different role for Brosnan, with long hair and scruffy look, he looks very different but still yummy! I couldn't help but to imagine myself riding that horse ; ) The best character is Steve Coogan as Hades. He isn't on the screen very long so you are left wanting to a longer dance with the devil. This movie ends leaving things wide open for a sequel so maybe Coogan will have a bigger role in the next movie. In short, this movie was good just not great.

2010 – Directed by Joe Johnston
Review by Jimmy King
Benicio Del Toro, is Lawrence Talbot, an actor who goes home for his brothers funeral and becomes the hunter of his brothers killer. While tracking the killer he is attacked and finds himself under the curse of the wolfman. Anthony Hopkins plays the father and offers experience and guidance for dealing with the curse/gift of being able to kill at will when the moon is full because he too is under the same curse. Lawrence finds out that father is the killer of the brother and the revenge struggle begins. The look and feel of the movie are gorgeous and the special effects help take this classic story into the current century. This story doesn’t recreate the wheel but it’s a great escape and a fun scary movie.

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnasssus - Imagine yourself not seeing it. This movie had potentially 2 big things going for it, a unique story and a dreamy, hot cast (Jude Law, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and the late, great Heath Ledger) but it didn't deliver the story very well at all. This movie was as confusing of a mess as many of my dreams at night and those are free! Save your money and take a nap instead!
