New Moon

Twilight really, really, really sucked...

As a result, I didn't have very high expectations to New Moon. The movie was awesome (better than Twilight, not the best movie ever), though. The second installment in the Twilight Saga completely impressed me.

Everything was better in New Moon: the actors, makeup, special effects, just everything. Some scenes could have been done better, but I'm sure when I watch it again, it probably won't even bug me anymore. While they took some liberties in the story, they put it together so nicely, I doubt anyone will be too upset.

If you thought Twilight sucked and you love this series, you'll love New Moon. I'm so glad I went at 6:30 p.m. so I could make it to my school's free 12:08 debut. The film went by a little too quickly for me. Yes, it was that good. I can hardly wait for this to come out on DVD and Eclipse next June. If you haven't already, go see New Moon.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

One word can easily describe this movie...BEWARE. This is by far the worst yet. I hate to be really bad on movies, especially when they are based on a book series I like. This debacle was awful. What happened? I'm going to wait until it comes out on DVD and give it another chance before I write my final review.

Throw Momma From The Train

Throw Momma From The Train (1987; Orion Home Video)

TIME: Approx. 88 Min.

Director: Danny DeVito

Screenwriter: Stu Silver

Starring: Danny DeVito, Billy Crystal, Kim Greist, Anne Ramsey

Back Cover: Owen is a momma's boy with a very strange Momma: she's a cross between Quasimodo and the Wicked Witch of the West, and Owen's spent a lifetime making her meals, cutting her toenails and getting crunched by her cane. Then, one day, along comes Larry...and Owen sees the path to possible salvation.

Larry's having female problems of his the form of an ex-wife who's really done him wrong. So, taking his cue from a Hitchcock thriller, Owen suggests they swap murders. After all, what are friends for? He'll murder Larry's lying, loathsome, conniving ex-wife - if Larry will only send Momma to her maker.

See how hilarious homicide can be when Danny DeVito and Billy Crystal star in this off-the-wall comedy hit and try to: "THROW MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN"

Review and Questions: Larry is struggling with his writing. His student Owen hasn't nearly a clue. After getting a little advice from Larry, Owen goes to see a Hitchcock movie. He sees Strangers on a Train, which gives him the inspiration for finally riding himself of his problems. The time it takes to get what he wants takes on a funny turn.

Was I hooked the first 15 minutes? The opening was okay, especially with Larry having a breakdown over his wife.

Did I enjoy the characters? Was the acting good? Loved this movie. The characters were very interesting.

How original is it? Never seen a movie played out like this.

Favorite Quotes/Scenes:

Larry: "I hate her and wish she was dead."

"The night was humid...class dismissed. I have an enormous headache in my eye. "

"Metaphorically, yes, specifically, without a doubt." (When asked by Beth, if he wants to kill his ex-wife"

Owen eats a chip and interrupts Larry and Beth's attempt at love making.

The train scene.

Hate's no good. Get rid of it Larry, or I'm leaving you.

Recommend: Anyone who wants a little fun with some murder. I know, sounds like an awful thing to say, but it is worth seeing.
