Before I start, I just want to say this is honestly one of the best romantic-comedies I've seen in a while. It is about a "player" named David, who tries to help his "Grandpa Joe" finally get over his wife that recently died. But while helping him meet new women, and introducing him on how to "play the game", Grandpa Joe explains to David about settling down, and finding a companion that would be suitable for him. David then meets Julie, and tries to "play the game" to figure out how he can finally be with Julie. The ending of this movie was also very good.

After I watched the movie Shutter Island, my mind was blown. The ending is very unexpected, and it gives you a lot to think about. It is about a U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island. But the movie goes so much deeper into that. I don't really want to give anything away, but it takes a lot of twists and turns which are unexpected. If you haven't seen this movie I would highly recommend it. I'd give it 4.5/5 stars.

This stand-up comedy by Kevin Hart was one of the funnier stand-ups that I've seen in a while. It's absolutely hilarious throughout the whole thing.

I've had this movie in my Netflix instant queue for a while, but I never got a chance to check it out. I watched the movie not really expecting much out of it,but after viewing this movie, I thought it was a pretty solid comedy. The storyline is pretty basic. It is about a guy named Don Ready, who was called upon by the owner of a used-car lot, Ben Selleck, in order to sell all of the cars in his lot, and prevent his place from getting shut down. It had a few funny parts, but I thought the ending was pretty cheesy. I'd give it about 3 starts out of 5. Check out the trailer below.

I've been meaning to watch this movie for a while now, as I've heard pretty mixed reviews about it. In the beginning of the movie, it kept me interested with action. Although I thought most of the movie was pretty decent, I do feel as if there were a couple of tricks and turns being made throughout. There were several different stories being told at once, and they did an alright job hooking them into each other. If you have time, I'd recommend that you check this movie out, it's a pretty interesting slasher. I'd give it 3 stars out of 5. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.

I decided to check out the movie The Haunting In Connecticut, after seeing it was available on Netflix Instant Stream. I was very disappointed after watching the movie. In the beginning, it said it was "based on a true story," so I decided to look up on it(since I know a lot of horror movies that are "based on a true story" are really just a hoax). More information about this "true story" can be found here. I'm not sure why I didn't like the movie, I just didn't find the storyline too interesting, also it wasn't very scary being categorized a "horror" movie. This was about a boy named Matt, whose family temporarily moved into an ex-funeral home house in Connecticut. Matt had cancer, so they wanted to live in a place close to a hospital. While living in this house, strange things start to happen, and Matt starts to see things that the others wouldn't. I would give this movie 1.5 stars out of 5. Leave a comment and let me know what you think of this movie if you have watched it, the trailer can be found below.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think about this movie.
