Inception Review

Inception is one of the best movies this year. Leonardo DiCaprio gets better looking every year. He looks fantastic and his acting is impeccable in this film. His role would be tough for anyone because the story and character are both so complicated. He pulls this off flawlessly though. We have come to expect nothing but the best from this actor and every film he is in is better for having him. This film is complicated and the story can be hard to follow if you have a short attention span but it is a fabulous and very unique story. Kudos to Christopher Nolan for having the guts and imagination to write and direct this movie. Also lighting up the screen in this spectacular creation is Lukas Haas. He was the little boy in "Witness" and now he is all grown up. Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine, Ken Watanabe and Pete Postlethwaite are among the long list of great actors that make this movie interesting to watch. Don't go to the bathroom or concession stand or you will miss enough of the movie to confuse you. There is no deception about "Inception", it is a must see movie with lots of thrills.

Knight and Day Review

If you are looking for a movie to see this coming Fourth of July weekend, go see this one! It doesn't matter if you are going with a group of guy or girl friends or even a date night. This movie has something for everyone. It has adventure, comedy and romance wrapped up in one fun package. Tom Cruise (Roy Miller) and Cameron Diaz (June Havens) have never looked better. June's antics will drive you nuts. She is unnerved much of the movie and Roy Miller has to keep her safe and deal with the bad guys chasing him. She is a bit dingy but her muscle car, tomboy behavior saves her from herself. As a girl who appreciates a good muscle car, (my favorite being the'68 Camaro) I loved the car scenes in this movie. GO see this movie! You will enjoy the ride.
