MM: Avatar, Eclipse, Toy Story, and Other Guys



A paraplegic marine dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission becomes torn between following his orders and protecting the world he feels is his home.

We saw this movie for the first time in a 3-D theatre, and it was AWESOME! We saw it again this week on our new blue ray player and big TV, and it was still awesome! It is a great story and beautiful movie. If you haven’t seen it, you should!



I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Nathan also gives it 5 out of 5 stars.

Twighlight – Eclipse

As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob.

I’m not a true Twighlight fan. I have never read the books, and it doesn’t bother me a bit to wait a month or so after the newest movie in the series has released on DVD before I watch it. I enjoy watching them, but I don’t get the big craze. Overall, this one was entertaining. I feel that this one, and the second, both have that feeling that you know it was made to be the in between movie. I don’t mind movies in a series, but I don’t like when they feel like that was their only purpose.



I give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Nathan gave it 3 out of 5 stars.

Toy Story

A cowboy toy is profoundly threatened and jealous when a fancy spaceman toy supplants him as top toy in a boy’s room. 

Nathan and I decided to add the Toy Story series to our Netflix queue, so we could watch them all in order. I’m not actually sure if I’ve ever seen them before. Definitely cute and entertaining.



I give Toy Story 4 out of 5 stars.

Nathan also gives it 4 out of 5 stars.

Other Guys

Two mismatched New York City detectives seize an opportunity to step up like the city’s top cops whom they idolize — only things don’t quite go as planned. 

This movie was…. I’m not even really sure how to describe it. It is funny, but it is stupid, completely random funny. Like if you really think about how random or stupid the stuff is, it’s not as funny.



I give Other Guys 3 out of 5 stars.
