Take the first movie that I thought was average at best, and make it extra raunchy, a little dark and copy almost scene for scene the previous film and you have this. If you gotta see "the Wolfpack" have more adventures together then here you go.

Great reboot to a the mutant superhero films with exploring Professor X and Magneto's early friendship and missions while trying to bring mutants together. Michael Fassbender rules this movie as Magneto and his scenes with Professor X are great. The supporting cast is decent even though they're playing some lower tier characters.

A big, colorful tale of a man taken into space to serve as a galactic defender of right in the galaxy. Ryan Reynolds (to me) wasn't bad in the role, but the movie is disjointed as hell, edited poorly and a mess. The DVD release is supposed to have expanded footage and hopefully fixed a lot of this.

Michael Bay learned how to pull back the camera and the poor taste from his 2nd movie and put together what will probably be the best Transformers movie he can make with Optimus Prime and his Autobots waging war against a turncoat Autobot who has sided with Megatron to take over the world. Same lapses in logic but the amped up action makes up for it-but it doesn't make up for the endless scenes of Shia LeBoeuf mugging and wangst.

Summer's action/comic hero fest ended on a high note with this bright, upbeat action pic that gives Chris Evans another chance at being a marvel bigshot and he excels with it here. Captain America is a 90 pound weakling with asthma who gets transformed into a super man to combat Nazi Germany and it's scientific weapons division. Little melodrama that hurts other Marvel movies and it's far better then people give it credit for.

Nice action film about a criminal with amnesia awake in the middle of nowhere with a mysterious bracelet on his arm and questions in his head, then the aliens come. The movie is what it says on the tin, it's cowboys and aliens.......and it runs a little too long for it's simple story.

Holmes and Watson return for more action, less investigating and amped up action, explosions and bromance as the wily Moriarty has his sights set on Watson and his new wife and attempting to start World War 1. The first film was revved up enough for the kind of movie it was, and this movie is more of an action film when it shouldn't have been.
