Did time escape you in 2009? Heard about a lot of great movies, but you just didn�t have time to keep up? And now you are in the mood. You want to catch up, you want some action and are wondering where to start. Well let me be of service. Last year had some absolutely wonderful action films. Here are just few of the ones I believe are a must see!
Star Trek- You don�t have to be a fan of the series or know anything at all about the television show to enjoy this hip, cool, action-packed with an awesome soundtrack. This ain�t your daddy�s Star Trek. Good thing!
District 9- Aliens have landed, and they are in a bad way! The space ship has stalled, they are hungry, and like E.T. they really need to get home. Just leave it to the humans to kick them when they are down. Brilliant in its efforts to show our intolerances of differences, District 9 is painful reminder of man�s cruelty, and inhumanity. Action junkies will enjoy the gunfight, and the edge of your seat thrills, humanitarians will need a to bring a journal so they can process their feelings.
Sin Nombre- Ahh Freedom! Hey, I know you are against people coming into the country illegally. But after watching this movie, rife with all of the trials and tribulations of reaching the land of the home and free, you just might award metals to the folks that make it to America.
Precious �Whoa are the predicaments of the abused. There are no guns but the verbal, and physical action is so disturbing, it is actually uncomfortable to witness. In fact, gun shots would be easier to swallow. Get your self into a determined state and watch this film which shows the power of the fragile human spirit, in spite of all of the world�s pitfalls. Fans of Monique should know that the closest you�ll get to laughter is a sneer.
Watchmen- When a retired superhero is murdered, the search is on for the killer. Based on a comic of the same name, this film which is full of action including fights, explosions, and murder completely unnecessary erotica. Watchmen was too darn long, but was fun for all of the wrong reasons. It had great period costumes, and a big, blue fully, completely, totally naked man gracing the screen. This female film critic says, �It�s about time!�
