Mini Movie Review: Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: ★★½

A valiant effort by director David Fincher, but this reboot falls short. It's not nearly as enthralling as the original Swedish version, but Trent Reznor's eerie soundtrack keeps the otherwise carbon copy plot somewhat intriguing. The recent surge of remakes of great foregin language films proves only one thing...Americans are too lazy to read subtitles. Rent this one(Watch the swedish movie first).

Mini Movie Review: Young Adult: ★★½

Well acted movie, but a bit too depressing. Don't expect the same light-hearted whit found in Diablo Cody's first film, Juno. The movie was marketed as a comedy, when this is in fact a drama with sprinkles of "comedy" mixed in. Rent this one if you need something to make you feel better about yourself.

Mini Movie Review: One Day: ★★½

The story line is fairly "gimmicky" following the relationship of 2 people who meet on the same day through different years. Not terrible, emotional driving drama. Rent this one with your lady and you'll score some "aw, isn't that cute" points!

Mini Movie Review: Transformers: Dark of the Moon: ★★

Without a doubt the worst in the trilogy. Great action, and special effects. Hokey jokes and gags feel awkward and forced. Simply put, this movie could be a live-action translation of the Saturday morning cartoon. Rent this one if you have an afternoon to waste.
