Emma Stone in Easy A

Easy A

Easy A is a high school comedy starring Emma Stone in her biggest role to date. Emma was great in her smaller roles from Superbad or Zombieland, but this film rests completely on her shoulders. As Olive Penderghast, she plays an ordinary high school girl that gets caught up in a web of lies that eventually starts to affect the lives of other people.

Jenn Proske and Matt Lanter in Vampires Suck

Vampires Suck

Vampires Suck sucks. Seriously. Don’t go see this movie. Don’t support this type of filmmaking. Don’t waste your money. And, if you refuse to listen, don’t say I didn’t warn you. You can read further if you want more detail, but that’s really all you need to know.

Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan in Eclipse

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Eclipse is the third film in the Twilight Saga, based on the book of the same name by Stephanie Meyer. Like the second film, New Moon, it presupposes that you have knowledge of the preceding movie (or the books) in order to fully understand the events as they unfold onscreen. Some of the characters in this series are supernatural beings.

Kick-Ass and Hit Girl

Kick-Ass

Kick-Ass. It’s an awkwardly-titled film. And it seems to be a movie without a target demographic. The trailer makes it seem like a comic book movie for kids, but the R rating implies that maybe it’s not for kids. (I can tell you right now: it’s not for kids, but it was a comic book.

Deadgirl movie poster

Deadgirl

Finally, someone has created a film to answer the age-old question: would you still have sex that hot girl if she were a zombie? As it turns out… wait, what? That’s not an age-old question? …Seriously? …Are you sure? Well, if this movie wasn’t created in order to answer a meaningful and important question then it must be some sort of cruel joke.

Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen in Twilight

The Twilight Saga: Twilight

During the holidays my little sister forced me to go see Twilight with her and I was fully prepared to hate it. I actually expected to hate it based on several things that I had seen in the trailer. There’s an event that couldn’t possibly escape attention (or scrutiny) and some ridiculous tree climbing, but the worst part is the vampires outside during the day.

Juno Movie Poster

Juno

I can't stand Sunny D. I'm more of an orange-tangerine Odwalla kind of a guy, but I won't hold that against Juno. She's too oddball-adorable to have anything held against her!
