Edge of Darkness

This drama, thriller directed by Martin Campbell, stars Mel Gibson (Thomas Craven), Ray Winestone (Jedburgh), Bojana Novakovic (Emma Craven) and I believe it was a decent movie. The movie is about the tragic murder of Thomas Craven's daughter, which leads him to go on a detective mission and find the perpetrators and from there a powerful governmental triangle comes into the game. I think the movie comes off as a must see in it's category of cop movie, because the dyamics of the main character Thomas Craven are pretty impressive, meaning to say I like the fact that he does not take nothing from anybody because he is a detective and of course a powerful arbitor of justice to boot. The movie seemed to go a long way to me as I found myself laughing at times, sad at other times and rather befuddled in a way by the scenes of action. So yeah I would highly reccomend this cop movie and yes it could be debatable if some scenes are unrealistic, but not by to much in some ways perhaps. So I don't know about Ebert, Robert or Siskel but I give it two thumbs up if your seeking action, mystery police stuff.

Alice In Wonderland

This Tim Burton movie, which is a fact that came to no surpise to me from previews is an adventure, family, fantasy picture. Well if you never saw the original of this movie this type of sequel is about Alice who goes back to the magical land from her childhood to defeat the evil Red Queen's domination. The movie stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice), Johnny Depp (Mad Hatter), Anne Hathaway (White Queen), Helena Bonham Carter (Red Queen) and others. Well the movie is definetly out of this world if you know what I mean, so I think most might just be able to appreciate the special effects and madness of Tim Burton perhaps. I also thought it was cool that they took a movie that was formely a cartoon and made a more real life appearing picture here. I think since this is such a famous story and the fact that it involves so much out of world creativity that if you like anything from Harry Potter to Narnia and so forth this is a pretty good pick for your viewing. And yes I have to admit it can be real fun to step out of this world when you go see a movie, since on somedays I have more then enough problems in this one, which reminds I have to go pay my car bill after this review. So yeah I would certainly reccomend this movie if you want to escape a certain dimension of realty and I would give this movie about an 8 out of 10 pleasent rabbits with clocks more spefically here!

How To Train Your Dragon

The talented Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders directed this animation, adventure, comedy, family, fantasy movie, starring big name voices like Gerald Butler (Stoick), Craig Ferguson (Gobber), Jay Baruchel (Hiccup) and others. The movie is about a hapless viking in training to hunt dragons, only to soon find he becomes friends with one and he discovers more about the nature of the beast so to speak, well a pretty nice beast in this case. Well everyone I know who saw the movie really liked it. For me it hit the spot as well because you have an amusing animation story with a far out plot, a boy going up against vikings and dragons and well I don't know just how often do you see that everyday. So I think the movie was pretty much in the A category that you will like of course if you want to travel to a new type of world and don't mind the cartoon type of genre. As a matter of fact I might make this amusing animation story a small piece of my big inspiration to train my next pet how to flush a toilet, seeing what a great challenge the character Hiccup overcame in this story. Well anyhow I think that about covers it for this entry and I sure hope you like the movie if you take my word for it!
