February '08 Movie Update

February flew by for us and we didn't go to the movies as much as we hoped but we did get to see Jumper and Step Up 2 the Streets. We were planning to see some of the Oscar-nominated movies but looks like we'll have to catch up through rentals.

  • Jumper
    Entertaining factor: 2.5 / 5
    Plot factor: 2 / 5
    Overall: 2 / 5
    Comments: This one was a big flop to me. Maybe it was the geek in me that wanted a more plausible movie but it didn't make sense and it wasn't fluid. And Hayden Christensen was not good at all. Great concept, poor execution. I blame one of the writers, David S. Goyer. The only movie I like from him is Batman Begins but Christopher Nolan should get the bulk of the credit for that movie.

  • Step Up 2 the Streets
    Entertaining factor: 4 / 5
    Plot factor: 3 / 5
    Overall: 3.5 / 5
    Comments: I like hip hop music and dance, so I found this movie extremely fun and entertaining. The plot was suprisingly decent, and even tied in to the first movie.
