Fred Claus

Fred Claus

When Fred Claus’ little brother was born, he promised to be the best big brother he could be. But that began to prove difficult, as little Nicholas was always showing him up. Nicholas was always giving and jolly. Their mother constantly said to Fred, “Why can’t you be more like your brother?” So as time went on, Fred grew more bitter towards Nicholas and the rest of his family. Though, when Fred gets into trouble, he calls his brother to help him out. But Nicholas (Santa) gives an ultimatum. He has to come work at the North Pole for a few days. But, unbeknownst to Fred, an inspector has come to the North Pole too. And he has the power to shut down Santa and Christmas altogether.

The Invasion

The Invasion

When a shuttle falls to earth, mysterious spores are found in the wreckage. And those exposed to the alien substance begin displaying strange, emotionless behavior. Soon Carol Bennell (Nicole Kidman) becomes sucked into a nightmare where no one is who they seem to be. Her friend and colleague Ben Driscoll (Daniel Craig) helps Carol discover that the alien organism infects people and changes them when they fall asleep. While trying to stay awake, Carol must avoid the growing number of changed zombie-like people and find her missing son who may hold the key to stopping the invasion.

The Invasion is literally a non-stop, heart-pounding thriller. As I left the theater, I felt like I had just had 10 cups of coffee. Emotions and suspense run rampant from beginning to end. Kidman and Craig have wonderful chemistry. And the acting was incredible, especially from Kidman and the young boy who played her son.

Coming down from such an intense adrenalin rush, I must admit it was a fun ride.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

The Magic Is Back!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is top notch suspense, action, drama, heartache, laughter, and teenage angst. With each sequel darker than the next, the intensity grows as Voldemort gathers his forces. In this installment, Harry is still trying to recover from watching his friend Cedric murdered by Voldemort. But the wizard community at large does not want to believe that you-know-who is back. When Harry and his cousin are attacked by Dementors, Harry has no choice but to use magic (illegally) in front of his muggle cousin to rid of the wraith-like creatures. As if Harry’s life couldn’t get any worse, Dumbledore seems to be avoiding him, a new professor has made it her ambition to reform the school making Harry her enemy, and Hagrid is missing.

Transformers… More than Meets the Eye

I went to see Transformers with little-to-no expectations, other than to be entertained by fantastic CGI and watching things get blown up. I was extremely surprised to get so caught up in the 2 and a half hour, non-stop action, and fun-fest this really was.

Spider-Man 3

Marvel movies continue to surprise. Usually, sequels aren’t quite as good as the originals. But X-Men and Spider-Man have proved this rule wrong. Spider-Man 3 is easily the best of the Spidey film yet. With more bad guys, more turmoil, more love interests, and more action; Spidey grows by leaps and bounds.

Every single actor played their part to perfection. Of the supporting cast, Bryce Dallas Howard as Gwen Stacy stole every scene that she was in. Thomas Haden Church played a wonderfully complex Sandman/Flint Marko. Topher Grace as Venom/Eddie Brock added much needed humor to an otherwise vicious role. And we get to see multiple sides to Goblin Junior/Harry Osborn, James Franco.
