August #MovieReviews - Part 1
Welcome back to another edition of monthly movie reviews. I have some good ones for you today.
10 Years (2011) - I'm usually entertained by movies about reunions and and school, but this movie actually put me to sleep. I had high hopes because it had Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt in it, but sadly, it let me down.
Its all about these friends who go to their 10 year high school reunion and some of them have changed and some of them haven't. It was really boring and nothing really happened the whole show. In fat, I fell asleep halfway through and woke up at the end with two people slow dancing in a bar.

This move is going to get a 1 out of 5 stars because I hated it, pure and simple.
Batman Vs. Superman (2016) - My husband has been wanting to see this movie since it was in the making and finally he bought it on Amazon because he couldn't wait for it to show up in Redbox.
I was hoping it would be as epic as all the Marvel movies and launch the DC universe, but all I could think of the whole movie was how fat they made Batman look in his giant metal outfit. I know he had to have some sweet armor to fight Superman, but really? It was more like Fatman! I'm not really sure how I feel about it yet.

I'm going to rate this movie with a 3 out of 5 stars. I'm glad I saw it but I wont watch it again.
Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) - Every time I try to watch this movie I find it ridiculous. The cast is ridiculous, the plot is ridiculous and the characters are ridiculous. With that being said, sometimes you just need to watch something a little ridiculous.
If the name does't give it away, the movie is about a hot tub time machine. These four guys go on guys weekend getaway where they get completely trashed and dump a drink into the hot tub's mechanics. They wake up the next morning in the 80's and all hell breaks loose.

This movie gets 3 out of 5 stars for complete ridiculousness.
Riddick 2013) - This latest installment of the Riddick Chronicles is nothing to scoff at. Every time Vin Diesel puts on the glasses he becomes a bad ass of epic powers.
I loved this movie just as much as I loved Pitch Black when my husband first introduced me to it. It doesn't disappoint. This movie almost takes you back to a Pitch Black like planet where things go bump in the night. It will give you nightmares.
Please, check out the trailer here.
This movie gets a strong 5 out of 5 because it is excellent and shouldn't be missed.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) - This movie was a long time coming. People said a movie with a female lead and a minority wouldn't do well in the box office, well, they were wrong. Very wrong.
The duo of Rey and Finn is the perfect combination of whit and sarcasm. I really loved the fact that its not your typical Star Wars. There are no Jedi, really. Only the hope that Jedi still exist, but somehow, the heroin learns to touch the force without any help. Kylo Ren is a huge dork, but I loe him and hate him at the same time.
Stop comparing this movie to the originals and check out the trailer.
This move gets 5 out of 5 stars because I loved it and you will too.
