  I'm not feeling well; I'm a little warm, I think I have ...  BIEBER FEVER!  Well, maybe not, but I was surprised at how much I liked this film.  As much as it is the story of an amazingly talented little boy, and how he makes it good, it's also a testament to the power of social networking, You Tube and Twitter specifically.  I LOVED the old clips of Justin as a little boy, his drumming skills are awesome.  And he has great taste in hat-wear!  (Go Yankees!)  There were several touching moments in here for me.  A few disturbing ones too.  It's just WRONG, for a 45ish woman to be crying over being given free tickets to a 16 year old boy's concert.  Eeewww!  All in all it was very entertaining.  And I don't think you need to be a lover of his music, the story sells it for me.  He is very talented.  But Justin, remember, it wasn't a choice, you were born that way.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this one; wasn't sure if I was going to go to it.  So my expectations were low, and yes, I was surprised how much I liked it.  Very suspenseful, a little gruesome in just a couple spots.  The last half was better then the first, the first had a few slow spots.  There were a lot of scenes of people floating in underwater caves, and yes it was pretty, but not all that interesting.  The action in the second half made up for it.  All in all, I think you'd enjoy it.  I give it 2 and a half stars.

 I really liked this one!  Must see for me.  It was very suspenseful, I like the twist, and I love the cast.  3 out of 4 stars.

I Am Number Four

 Anything with Timothy Olyphant is a must see for me.  And I wasn't disappointed.  Well, it would have been better if he were in more scenes, but I was able to get a nice good dose of him.  I liked this movie.  It was entertaining with a few funny scenes (though I'm not sure if they were all meant them to be funny).  There was lots of action and some suspense.  The alien scenes were very action packed and I liked them.  I'd give it three stars, though not sure if everyone would like it as much as I did.  Did I mention that Timothy Olyphant was in it?  Sigh...

The Company Men

This movie is DEPRESSING!  Despite that, I'd give it 3 stars.  It's about a big conglomerate downsizing, the depressing reality of unemployment, and how especially hard it is for someone who used to be one of the "Haves".  And throw in greedy CEOs, and doesn't that sound like a fun afternoon!  But it was well done and has a great cast.  I loved Tommy Lee, and even thought Kevin Costner was OK.  Chris Cooper was good too.  I'd say it's a Must See.  But then, I love movies!

The Roommate

I'd give it two out of four stars.  I enjoyed it; there were suspenseful moments.  It's very much like Single White Female, but they "updated it" to make it a bit more 21st century in a couple places, which I appreciated.  Not a must see, but if you're wanting a fun movie with a little thrills, I'd say "Go!"
