I SAW IT: Definitely, Maybe. Zombieland. How to Train Your Dragon. Notorious.

Here's a quick rating for some movies I saw in April:

Definitely, Maybe (2008)
starring Ryan Reynolds, Isla Fischer, and Abigail Breslin
A pretty cute movie. Reynolds' character tries to explain to his daughter his past relationships and how he met her mother. He fakes the names in his stories and twists some things up so you're always guessing who her mother really is. Kept me entertained. All 3 of the female leads were terrific in their own way. Annoying at times but you grew to appreciate them. It was worth the rental.

Zombieland (2009)
starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin
I watched this fairly soon after watching Definitely, Maybe and oh boy, Abigail Breslin grew up quick in the past year! It wasn't what I expected in any way. Lots of gore at the beginning (REALLY REALLY gross gore) but as the movie progressed, the gore lessened and the storyline really took shape. Overall, pretty funny and decent movie.

How to Train your Dragon (2010)
voices by Jay Baruchel and Gerard Butler
AMAZING! Loved this flick. A great film for kids and adults alike. The animation was incredible and viewing it in 3D definitely added to the depth of the film. I would see it again in a second. I might even buy it. Who knew dragons could be cute?!And that vikings could be so funny!?

Notorious (2009)
starring Jamal Woolard and Derek Luke
Sucked. Don't even bother. It's a biographical film about the Notorious B.I.G. It was interesting to learn about him and his rise to fame, along with Diddy and 'Lil Kim, but it was way too perverse for my liking. Lots of cursing, to the point that it was obnoxious and sounded unnatural. Terrible acting too.
