Love and Other Drugs is your typical romantic comedy, but it's elevated by a raunchier sense of humor and great casting...until it falls into the cliches of its genre.

Skyline is the train wreck everyone says it is, and if you have that feeling in your gut you're going to be disappointed, follow that instinct. If you're like me though and enjoy insanely bad movies, it may be worth a watch despite what your conscience tries to tell you.

For a movie that isn't really aimed for my demographic, Morning Glory is surprisingly funny and entertaining, with great performances by Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams, and a cast that elevates the mediocre story into something worth checking out.

Okay, it's more of a rant but it's my party and I'll whine if I want to. Minor spoilers for the entire SAW series. And in case you don't want to read it: the movie sucks. Bad.
I probably "didn't get" the overall message, but what I saw on the whole was very boring with the interesting elements overshadowed by a completely uninteresting and lackluster main story.

If you hated the other ones, you'll hate this just as much, but everyone else...enjoy yourselves. Sometimes watching people maim themselves is more appealing than watching your bank account and dreams dwindle.

Red may be adapted from Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer’s energetic graphic novel, but what it really feels like is an extension of a scene in this past summer’s similar action entry, The Expendables. Even if you haven’t seen the film, you know the moment I mean—where Bruce meets Sly and Arnold in a church, offers them a job, and then jets off again.
