Mini-Reviews of movies I've seen:

The Matrix Reloaded: Did not live up to the originality of the first film. While the love story between Neo and Trinity is very sweet, the dialogue often gets weighed down in the discussion of what it means to be human and our inevitable destruction. Highlight: Monica Belucci as a disgruntled wife.

Charlie's Angels 2: Despite the presence of Demi Moore in a black bikini, this film had no plot or storyline beyond the importance of female friendships. Female empowerment, while important, does not make a movie Highlight: Demi Moore

Bruce Almighty: Hilarious, sweet look at appreciating the life you are given. This is definitely Carrey's best film since Liar, Liar and Aniston is great in a film where she has to compete with Carrey's mugging. Morgan Freeman as God could have taught George Burns a thing or two. Highlight: Bruce (Carrey) meeting God (Freeman) for the first time.

Finding Nemo: Easily the best film I have seen all summer. From the incredible animation, to the sweet story about parent-child relationships to Ellen Degeneres' lovable character Dori--a blue Tang with short-term memory problems--this film easily delivers some of the best action and comedy you will find in any summer movie.Highlight: Crush, the sea turtle, giving Dori and Marlin a ride down the East Aussie current.

Daddy Day Care: Not one of Eddie Murphy's better films, but it is still much better than The Adventures of Pluto Nash. Still, I would love to see the raunchy Eddie Murphy come back and make a movie. Who would have ever thought of Murphy as a family actor after seeing his concert "Raw?" Highlight: Murphy looking in the bathroom after one of his clients makes a mess while the theme to Psycho plays in the background.

League of Extraordinary Gentleman: Sean Connery, 74, still kicks major ass in a movie about 19th century literary figures who form a league to stop a world war. Connery is the definite highlight of the film, while I wish they would have given Peta Wilson much more to do. Highlight: Wilson's Mina Harker defending herself against a terrorist.

Well, those are my reviews. Feel free to submit your own.

I would have liked that .

As a fan of "Treasure Island" (with one of my favorite actors Charlton Heston) I think PotC looks promising.

2 Fast 2 Furious was the BOMB

Want to see:
Tomb Raider 2: The Cradle of Life
New Mandy Moore Movie (What's it called?)

Have seen and HATED:
2 Fast 2 Furious (Cheap ass ghetto flick with corny cars... someone pull the plug before they make installment 3. I'm tired of seeing neon glowing off the sides of POS Honda's, etc) Come to think of it, I hated the first one.. I only went as a favor to my friend... piff some friends I have.
Legally Blonde 2 (IT WAS HORRIBLE... no where near as good as the first)
*Do not waste your money on the above to flicks or you will find yourself kicking your own ass wondering "WHY OH WHY"

Cool Movies I've seen:
Matrix Reloaded (It was OK, I'd see it again)
T3 (What can I say, cool movie, worth seeing)
Charlies Angels 2 (I liked it )

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!
