It is very difficult to cram 734 pages into a film, even one which is two-and-a-half hours long. However, this is what director Mike Newell (Mona Lisa Smile) has successfully accomplished with the fourth installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. While fanatic fans of the book will be able to pick out what is missing (no house elves), Newell does an excellent job of cutting out the sub-plots to create a clear, concise storyline that follows the main plot of the book.

Ahoy, me maties! For those of ye landlubbers who didn't know, less than a fortnight ago, this past Monday was National Talk Like a Pirate Day, or TLAPD for short. I decided that I wanted the full TLAPD experience, so for the past week I prepared to talk, walk, and be pirate. Arrr. I plundered me roommate's booty chest of CVS pirate costumes, and grabbed me eye patch and parrot. I didn't shower or shave for a whole week to get that natural pirate smell of the sea on me skin. Every pirate needs to be in tip-top shape, so I took to Pottruck early in the day in full pirate regalia to use the elliptical and scream, "Arrrrrr!" while lifting weights.
Michael Bay's The Island can be summed up in three phrases: escaping from authorities, things blowing up and attractive people in tight white suits. If you don't know anything else about the movie but have an interest in seeing it, then stop reading now -- the less you know about the plotline going into the film, the more enjoyable it is. Don't watch the trailers either, because you'll be able to guess 80 percent of the storyline.

23 years ago, my mother and father got married. Then they had my brother and me. However, my father's fast-paced life as a racecar driver and my mom's conservative life as a bank teller didn't mesh well, so they got divorced when I was five. Normally, this would be the worst thing ever. However, I was fortunate in that my parents came to the civil agreement of weekdays with Mom, weekends with Dad.

But my mom, the brave woman that she is, captures the damn thing in a Tupperware container and sets it free outside. She calls the animal control department who tells her the bat might have salivated on her children while they slept; so everyone needs to go to the hospital and get rabies shots.

There are things out there that go bump in the night," quips Professor Bruttenholm (John Hurt). "We are the ones who bump back." No, this isn't your average weekend-drunken-sorority-girl- hook-up; it's Guillermo del Toro's above average comic-to-movie film Hellboy. Mix two parts X-Men, two parts Men In Black technology and a sprinkle of The Hulk's big buff looks, and you have the recipe that not only looks good but doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth.
In the opening scene of George Armitage's The Big Bounce, Jack Ryan (Owen Wilson) quips, "For a long time, I've been walking down the road of life with my two best friends, bad luck and bad choices." Both of them have led Wilson and the star-studded cast down to Hawaii on a terrible remake of an already awful 1969 film based on a novel by Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty).
