I'd seen a random trailer of this, and thought it looked interesting. Unfortunately it couldn't quite live up to my expectations - mostly because it turned out to be a lot more action and less comedy than the trailer had lead me to believe - and it was so SHORT compared to most movies these days (only 1:30), so it kinda felt like the plot never took off. I didn't dislike it, it just wasn't what I'd expected.

Fascinating movie! Completely deserves the Oscar nominations and wins. Viggo Mortensen was AMAZING as an Italian American. It was billed as "the best comfort movie of the year" though, and I definitely wouldn't agree with that. It was too real a depiction of racial issues for me to really consider it a comfort movie, but it did have some extremely sweet moments. Especially Don teaching Tony how to write letters...

I LOVED both MIB and MIIB, so I had great hopes for this sequel, and fortunately it did NOT disappoint. I thought it was very well made and suitably hilarious :)

Even after so many rewatches, I still can't get over how amazingly well-cast Josh Brolin is as young K is! You completely forget that he isn't just a young Tommy Lee Jones. Well done!

I think I might actually like this a tiny bit better than the first one. Not because it's better - I'd say they're pretty much on par there - but because it was a sequel that didn't let me down. I loved the aliens in the locker :D

I'm CONVINCED the start of this one is a homage to Douglas Adams!

I didn't really have many expectations either way when it came to this movie, but ended up really enjoying it. A great cast and I really enjoyed all the main characters. Oh, and I loved Maria and Monica, and how Monica was included when things concerned her, while still protected from unnecessary details.

Yeah, I probably know it through a wall ;) Completely unbelievable movie of course, but it's just plain FUN, so who cares? But I get the theme song stuck in my brain EACH AND EVERY TIME I watch this movie!

Always good for a laugh. I love how unseriously it takes itself, and it's one of Alan Rickman's best roles. Can't believe it's TWENTY years old already!

Worth waiting for ;) They managed to create a story which worked and wasn't just a "sequel for the sake of being a sequel". My favourite was still Jack-Jack - he's absolutely adorable and I loved his powers and LOVED seeing Edna's reaction to him!! Dash bugged me - he was really infuriatingly annoying at times... but actually no more so than many "real" boys that age. Lars and I guessed the twist at a very early...

I haven't read the book this is based on (yet), so I have no idea how it compares. I rather liked it, but it was a LOT darker than I thought it would be. The start especially was significantly more spooky than I'd expected. Obviously the first in a series, and thus had a very open ending, but oddly enough that didn't bother me as much as it usually would. Probably because it was very similar in style and...

Another "you might enjoy this" recommendation from Netflix. I watched the trailer, and it definitely looked like something I might like, so I decided to give it a shot. And it was fun! Nothing special, but a fun take on the rom-com cliche, and ended up being better than I had expected.

Yeah, as you can see from the rating, I wasn't impressed. But considering this was the first anything of Star Trek I've ever seen start-to-finish, I'm probably not the target audience anyway.

I know this is a high school flick, so I should really be too old for it (yeah right ;) ), but I still think it's a sweet movie. And there's more to it than 'just another teen movie' as it touches upon a lot of interesting issues concerning black/white relationships in the ghetto.

Rewatch in 2019: Haven't seen this in AGES and had forgotten how much I like it. It's one of the better / more realistic teen movies of...

Not an amazing movie, but I liked it well enough. It was very much like the first one, so totally lived up to my expectations. Nothing more, nothing less.

Christian movie about the power of prayer. Not for everybody, but I absolutely ADORED it and almost felt like rewatching it immediately after finishing. Loved it, loved it, loved it! Thank you to my sister, for the recommendation!
