Everyone loves to know the back story of how a superhero gets their start, and in this epic remake of Captain America, played by Chris Evans, they do just that! Captain America or aka Steve Rogers is a scrony kid from Brooklyn, NY Breakdownattempting to become a soldier in the U.S. Army but is repeatedly turn down due to his size and health issues. One day Doctor Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) comes to him and offers him a one time chance of a life time to prove everyone wrong, and show that the little guy has what it takes!

I’ve been a long time Captain America fan, read all the comics, and have seen all the movies; and I must say, I LOVED this remake! Chris Evans did a fantastic job playing the humble, yet kick ass Captain America! With all that said, this movie recieves a 9/10 and is highly recommended and kid friendly!

Have any of you ever had a stalker in your life? Well in this B-Grade comedy, Steve (Bradley Cooper), a camera man for a local news agency is setup by his mother on a blind date with Mary (Sandra Bullock), and she turns out to be a Breakdownclass A stalker! Mary takes a comment wrong on the first date and believes that Steve wants her to travel with him around the country. She than spends the next few weeks tracking down Steve at his various work sites!

I went into this movie looking for a feel-good, romantic comedy. But sadly I was met with a B-Grade, half assed comedy that didn’t bring much to the movie screen. “All About Steve” has actually received two Golden Raspberry Awards (Razzies) for being the worst movie of 2009. I will be giving this film a 3/10 for the little bit of humor you do receive, and Sandra Bullocks unique acting style in this particular movie.

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie star in this dramatic thriller, “The Tourist“. This film starts out as every mans dream. Your a single guy in Europe travelingBreakdown on a train when an attractive woman comes up and starts to flirt with you!

The tourist offers a wide variety of genres, has a feel of a romance, lots of action thrown in, all topped with some comedy! Elise (Angelina Jolie) is under surveillance by the French Police when she receives a note from Alex Pearce (Her lover) instructing her to board a train to Venice, pick a man that looks like him, and make the police believe its him! The man she happens to pick is Frank Tupelo (Johnny Depp), a community college math teacher. You spend the majority of the movie watching a complicated romance bloom between the two unlikely pair, but the end is quite a surprise and will catch you off guard!

This film receives a 7/10 for a very unique and well written plot, and I always love a twist at the end! Great movie for the whole family, although some parts small children might not understand.

Elysium

Wow, thats the first thought that comes to mind when I think of the movie “Elysium”. I originally wasn’t that interested in seeing this film, from the previews it didn’t seem like a movie worth seeing in theaters. But oh boy was I Breakdownwrong, it was just down right awesome!

Elysium had the feeling of “Water World” and “Dooms Day”, but kick-ass futuristic weapons and vehicles thrown in and you have your self a movie! For all you “HALO” fans, you may actually recognize the habitat the wealthy live on in space, its almost identical to that of the one in Halo.

The writers did a superb job distinguishing between the two classes of people. You have the wealthy, whom live clean and disease free lives running the world as they see fit; and than you have the poor/average folks who have to get by with the corrupt and unbalanced system the wealthy have put into place! Sound familiar?

This film receives a 10/10 for its well written storyline which brings real life problems into a world of fantasy, and its very well done graphics which make the action scenes MIND BLOWING!
