End of '07 Movie Catch-up

I went through an entry drought and its been 3 months since my last post. Its not that I haven't done anything or haven't seen any movies. Its just that I never took the time to post. October through the end of the year was very busy for me, professionally and personally, and the holidays were obviously a factor.

But I'm back and happy to post again. So lets start off 2008 with a catch-up on my movies of 2007 and mine and Amie's final rankings.

  • We Own The Night
    Entertaining factor: 2.5 / 5
    Plot factor: 2.5 / 5
    Overall: 2.5 / 5
    Comments: Save your time by skipping this crime drama and watch American Gangster instead. This one didn't live up to my expectations

  • Dan in Real Life
    Entertaining factor: 4.5 / 5
    Plot factor: 4 / 5
    Overall: 4 / 5
    Comments: How can I explain how good this movie is? It really hits the heart in a funny and dramatic way. But do American families really spend their holidays like this one does?

  • American Gangster
    Entertaining factor: 4 / 5
    Plot factor: 4 / 5
    Overall: 4 / 5
    Comments: This is what people should expect crime dramas to be.

  • Beowulf
    Entertaining factor: 4 / 5
    Plot factor: 4 / 5
    Overall: 4 / 5
    Comments: We saw this in digital 3-D and I was impressed with the CGI. I also like the story so I thoroughly enjoyed the movie...I think more than others.

  • Enchanted
    Entertaining factor: 4 / 5
    Plot factor: 3.5 / 5
    Overall: 3.5 / 5
    Comments: Really fun movie and I thought Amy Adams made the movie work.

  • Atonement
    Entertaining factor: 4.5 / 5
    Plot factor: 4.5 / 5
    Overall: 4.5 / 5
    Comments: Everything was superb in this movie - the writing, directing, acting, and the music. It deserves all the accolades its been getting. And I have to add that Keira Knightley was amazing in all aspects.
