A lunchtime viewing. Carriers is a good survival-horror type movie. Although the horror is more emotional than your typical "infected" type movies. There's no danger of reanimated corpses or anything, just the disease itself. Its a good look into the humanity within us when humanity is gone. Carriers is a good pick for a fairly short instant watch.


Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

We somehow missed this in the theater. I could have sworn we had seen it, but I didn't remember it at all. This was my first HP book I read and now that I've watched the movie I feel like a lot was left out. The movie works on its own though and I probably would've enjoyed it more had I not read the book. Its a good penultimate in the series and gets you ready for the final "mission".

Potter Order: 3,1,4,2,6,5

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

The special effects in this one is by far the best so far. The final battle scene with Voldemort is remarkable! That being said, this movie drives me crazy. The character of Dolores Umbridge does exactly what she's supposed to do, gets under your skin and you're constantly praying for her to die a slow and painful death. I also don't get the plot point where everyone just ignores Harry in hopes that it will keep him out of trouble. The more I think about it, the more I like Goblet, so this one is definitely my least favorite so far. Rating in order from best to worst 3,1,4,2,5. Yes, I changed it up from last time. I'm allowed to.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

While I enjoyed the dark, "Empire Strikes Back" feeling to this HP, it was still my least favorite. The ending was probably the best part, Voldemort returns for real, Harry doesn't really defeat anything but basically just gets away, and Edward Cullen dies!

For those keeping track, my HP order is now, 3-1-2-4


What to say about this movie... Um, there's a lot of good eye candy in it? How's that? Oh, here's one, I got my money's worth out of watching this by renting it at redbox.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

I actually enjoyed this more than the first HP. Love the time travel element as well as Gary Oldman as Sirius Black. So far in my HP revisit, my order is 3-1-2.

[4.5/5] (but I'm rating it a 5 on netflix)

Wall Street

No, you didn't read my tag wrong. This is a "new" one for me.

I was a big fan of Boiler Room when it came out and now I know why. It definitely took a lot of things from Wall Street.


Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Another in our potter recap. This one does a good job of representing the book and provides some more action than the first.
