Movies (2005)

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
I enjoyed it as much as our nephew did.

Aeon Flux
I really thought I wasn't going to like it, but I did.

The Legend of Zorro
¿Quién es ese hombre enmascarado?

Let the game begin. Another solid performance by The Rock.

A History of Violence
Passable Lifetime movie of the week.

Panic Room at 30,000 feet.

Just Like Heaven

The Transporter 2
Not as good as the first one, but still quite fun.

Red Eye
I can't remember the last time I sat thru a movie and didn't realize 76 minutes had gone by. Wes Craven suckered me in, and I loved every moment of it.

Sky High
Surprisingly good and funny for a Disney Kids Movie.

A little slow and thin at times. Some great aerial sequences. Definitely worth seeing on the big screen.

The Island
Good story, good stunts, good actors and a good director. It all makes for a great ride.

Fantastic 4
It's Clobber Time. Flame on!

Batman Begins
About bat time.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith
Who's your daddy now?

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
The best of the prequels by a long shot. Weak story line which is redeemed by some truly outstanding special effects.

A movie featuring Jet Li, penned by Luc Besson, and directed by The Transporter's director can't fail. It sure didn't.

XXX: State of the Union
Thin plot, but great action sequences.

Sin City
Right after the movie, Vik said she wished more comics would be adapted for the big screen like this was. I agree.

Bruce Willis at his best.

Be Cool
Disjointed and not quite as good as Get Shorty, but still quite funny. The Rock steals every single scene he's in.

Not as bad as they said it was.
