Mini Movie Review: Crazy, Stupid, Love. : ★★★½

Refreshingly entertaining, perfect balance of comedy and drama. Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling make a dynamic duo. Great date movie, but not essential to see this in the theater. Guys take your ladies and they’ll be convinced you have great taste in movies.

3.5 out of 5

Mini Movie Review: Cowboys & Aliens : ★★½

With the unique mash-up of the Scifi and Western genres, an all-star cast and ‘Iron Man’ director Jon Favreau, one would think 'Cowboys & Aliens' film might be epic to the geek degree. But unfortunately it falls WELL short of that. Daniel Craig is convincing as the baddest outlaw in the West, but Harrison Ford, on the other hand, unintentionally looks old and frail (its sad). Overall, this film is right down the middle, its not horrible, but its nothing special. If you’re a huge Daniel Craig fan, or enjoy over CGI-ed visual feasts you’ll probably like this movie. But I’m confident no one will say they “LOVE” Cowboys & Aliens.

Mini Movie Review: Captain America: The First Avenger: ★★½

'Captain America: The First Avenger' is like having a sandwich made with generic brand meat, cheese and condiments surrounded by by the most delicious bread you’ve ever had. The beginning and ending of the film were very strong, but everything else in between was predictable and bland. If you are a die-hard Marvel fan, like me, don’t waste any time and see this in theaters, otherwise waiting until this one is on DVD won’t be a bad idea. Also, as most Marvel flicks go, make sure you stick around until after the credits to see a teaser for the upcoming Avengers movie!
