I am creative by nature, and analytical by design. My escape from the riff raff of everyday life is a great movie. I do not title myself as a movie critic. I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money. I hope my reviews help you in your descision.

  1. Very interesting list with some movies I didn't see on other lists. Except for The Adjustment Bureau they are all movies I enjoyed a lot as well. Wasn't expecting much from Thor, but was pleasantly surprised by it. X-Men was my favorite superhero movie this past year. The Help had great acting and the one line that will be memorable for years 🙂

  2. Yeah I know my list was slightly different from a number of bloggers who all had "Drive", "Midnight in Paris", and/or "Tree of Life" on their lists. I just couldn't follow the hype, and had to be true to myself. These are the films that excited or moved me the most. Lincoln Lawyer made the list because McCaugnhey gave one of his grandest performances I have seen. Real Steel had my heart pumping, although many bloggers didnt care for it. The movie was for kids & kids at heart, and the kids loved it! Agree with comment on Thor. That movie was an amazing surprise. XMen…as u can see from my list…absolute fave! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
