Dark Knight Rises movie poster from Warner Bros.
One word comes to mind when thinking about this trilogy: Spectacular. The final movie to this epic retelling of one of the most beloved superheroes of all time did not let its predecessors down. Complex character development, a flawed and tragic hero, and true disaster and destruction made this plot captivating while pulling a deep emotional response from its watchers. The set design and special effects were beyond amazing, and Cat Woman’s character was a seamless addition to the story.
Okay, all you Alien lovers out there. Whether you enjoyed the badass-ness that was Sigourney Weaver’s ‘Ripley’, the killer suspense, or the all around awesome atmosphere of the OMG-we’re-trapped-on-this-ship-with-a-monster/alien, Prometheus is a must see. This is much more than a prequel to Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece. It stands on it’s own as a pretty kick ass movie, with the fun distinction of feeding off and adding to the drama and fear of the classic we all love and remember.
I know my fervent wish for a science fiction movie that was good to come out this year was totally granted! Yay, fairy god-mothers!

What’s better than a superhero? Six super heroes.
The Marvel universe did not disappoint with it’s newest movie. The Avengers was exactly what I hoped it would be. I feared that the huge cast and the big personalities they played would cause the whole plot to implode upon itself like a dying star. Instead they showed the talent and creativity of the writers, actors, and producers of this movie when they made a script that allowed each character to shine and still somehow make room for their teammates.
