Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire: I got this one because my girlfriend wanted to watch it. I never watched any other Potter movies and I didn't read the books. I am not a child or a teenager either. I guess I do not belong to the HP demographics and this explains my rating. The movie was not bad in general. It had nice graphics and the plot was ok ... but it was too long, almost 3 hours. Rating: 6

Two For the Money: Not bad movie about the addiction to betting. Al Pacino is playing which is a big plus. Rating: 6

The Legend of Zorro: Action comedy. Nice movie for kids. I prefer the previous one as this one is too childish. Rating: 4

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo: Comedy. I liked the original movie a lot so I got this one also. Big disappointment. Stay away from it. Rating: 3

Everything is Illuminated: Comedy / Drama. Elijah Wood, Eugene Hutz. Cool film, starts off funny, following an American Jew in his search for information about his family. Finishes in a more serious vain, touching on the holocaust. Well worth a watch. 7 out of 10

Sky High: Comedy / Action. Kurt Russell, Michael Angarano. Picked this one up because I like my comic book, action flicks and the trailer's for Sky High made it look like a half decent, Disney, take on the concept. Shame really, I should have realised that the Disney element is, for me, the weak link.

If your a fan of movies like Spiderman, Daredevil, Xmen, The Hulk etc, then this movie will do little for you, but If your looking for an afternoon kid pleaser then look no further.

The acting is fine, the effects do the job but I felt the story was a little weak and doesn't really satisfy a more mature audience.

Amelie: Romantic Comedy in French. This is a different movie than most but it is quite enjoyable. After all the Hollywood movies a good change is always welcomed. Rating: 8

Mr. 3000: Comedy. Nothing very special here especially if you don't understand baseball! Get it only if you don't have any better options. Rating: 4
