When in Rome

The funnest romantic comedy since Confessions of a Shopaholic, When in Rome surprised me to make me laugh for most of the movie. Maybe it is because I haven't seen the trailers beforehand, but we all really liked this movie. From the director of Daredevil and Ghost Rider, (yes, I just said Daredevil and Ghost Rider), the story is magical enough to be really fun, silly, and crazy at the same time, yet romantic. I would buy this movie for $5 at Enough said. 8/10.
PS>Favorite quote and part from the movie, "Are you smelling me?!?"

Blood Diamond

I did not have any problems with Blood Diamond in particular and I felt it was a bit more infotainment than entertainment, but I did not have a good time in the depths of African heck thinking about American shortcomings and feeling terrible! The story itself has a very fulfilling core where the objectives of the two main characters are divided between what they feel is the most valuable item in their life (family vs. freedom/power) but there were just too many innocent people being killed to feel good during this movie. That was probably the intent of the movie to move the audience to action to not buy conflict diamonds. I liked it as a whole but I did not like watching the tragedy of war. Good, but sad. A lot like Slumdog Millionaire and City of God but directly affects the commerce of the American people. 7/10
PS>Ok, I never once believed that Leonardo Dicaprio was from Africa

Leap Year

Leap Year is an okay movie with an okay plot and little to no chemistry between the love interests. It repeats many chick flick themes that I have seen before and tries to just be a pleasant chick flick, but fails. Its an okay movie to watch on a lazy Sunday but not anything to really get excited about. Even Tiffany didn't really think much of it...but it tries. 5/10
