The Dark Knight

200px-Dark_Knight Several months back I watched The Dark Knight (2008,PG-13).  From ScreenIt!:

While trying to bring down various criminal figures, Batman must contend with a murderous psychopath who enjoys toying with him.

I enjoyed it.

I give it 4 out of 5.

Star Trek

200px-Startrekposter On Saturday night of the June MS150 weekend, Eric and I went to see Star Trek (2009,PG-13) (continuing the tradition we started when we saw Iron Man last year).  From ScreenIt!:

The young and relatively inexperienced crew of a starship must set off on a rescue mission when a madman goes on an intergalactic spree of revenge.

I liked it.

I give it 4 out of 5.


Up_Poster A few months back we went to see Up (2009,PG) in the theater.  From ScreenIt!:

A 78-year-old widower uproots himself when he attaches balloons to his house and sets off for South America, unaware that an 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer has unintentionally come along for the ride.

I give it 4 out of 5.

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian


Back in March we went to see Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian in the theater.  From ScreenIt!:

A former museum night guard tries to rescue his museum figure friends -- that magically come to life at night -- from an Egyptian pharaoh figure that's likewise now animated and desirous of resurrecting his army of the dead.

The kids liked it, but I thought it was pretty bland.

I give it 3 out of 5.



Back in July we watched E.T. for family movie night.  From ScreenIt!:


An alien misses his spaceship ride home and is befriended by a young boy until his crew returns for him.


This is one of the first movies I remember seeing in the theater (I was 10).  The first one was Star Wars (when I was 5).  I also remember seeing a Star Trek film but I don't know if it was the 1st one (when I was 7) or the 2nd (when I was 10).  It was actually a drive-in when I saw E.T. as a kid.

I give it 5 out of 5.
