Here are some of my personal favorites and disappointments:

Biggest Disappointment:

After Earth - "womp, womp" is all I have to say about that. 

Oblivion - This movie was incredibly boring. They story line was not so great...Tom Cruise looked great, but that couldn't save the movie.

Biggest (pleasant) Surprise:

Pain & Gain - This is a dark comedy, what with all the drugs and murder (and it's based on a true story. You should google it, it's crazy). Mark Wahlberg, The Rock, and Anthony Mackie were just fantastic. I mean, they had me laughing from beginning to end. I saw this movie 4 times, and I'm unashamed to admit it.

Biggest (not so pleasant) Surprise:

Oz the Great and Powerful - James Franco...really did not wow me in this role. He just seemed...disingenuous the entire time. Like, the movie could not have been carried by his acting alone. In fact, it would have failed if it was just piggybacking off of Franco. But, luckily, the ladies (Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis, and Michelle Williams) really make the movie fun to watch. But, don't go in expecting something amazing...because it wasn't. The colors were bright and beautiful to look at though.

Movie that Delivered Exactly What I Expected:

Fast & Furious 6 - Yesssssss, I love fast cars. I really do. A guy friend told me I like "muscle cars" and maybe that's true because I was just on the edge of my seat with excitement and this movie delivered. I can't wait for the 7th one!

Man of Steel - All I have to say, is that Superman liiiiivvvves! Superman is the hero of childhood. And I will be watching every Superman film with Henry Cavill as the lead. I'm convinced that he is Superman (and soooo hot).

Anywho, I won't drone on and on, but I've enjoyed the movie scene so far. Looking forward to the summer time for more animated films. I love going to these by myself, buying gummy bears, and sitting on the edge of my seat, laughing out loud like a child. Don't judge me.
