Nicole Knows Movies

First of all my friend Becky came up with the new name of my movie review posts, pretty clever I think! Thanks Becky!!
Today I am doing a head-to-head movie match up!!! Do I have a life outside of movies? Sure, but in a 3 day time span 2, 2 hour movies is nothing over the top! I went to see Night at the Museum 2 on Saturday with my family and then yesterday Matt & I went to see Terminator (insert Arnold accent here)!! Yes, these movies could not be more different but my reviews are completely different as well.... I am easy to please so for me to give a movie "renter only" status that is harsh! HA! Can you guess which movie gets this honor?
Night at the Museum, Battle of the Smithsonian
I love love love the first Night at the Museum.... I have watched it over and over and over it was the perfect mix of childish humor with a grown up twist BUT the sequel was anything but as good as the first! I will make this short & sweet....... If you are under the age of 10 this is the movie for you and you only! This movie is filled with so many big names and their talent was wasted, let me give you a example for me one of the funniest lines was when Jedediah (Owen Wilson) called Hank Azaria's Pharaoh character "Ramon Noodle" this is not a joke people, that line got BIG laughs. This movie was clever and had cute ideas with even the Einstein bobble heads coming to life but we were all under-whelmed!! My sister slept thru the movie if that tells you anything. I won't rent this when it comes out but if you have children under the age of 10 this is the movie for you!!!
Terminator Salvation
I was unsure about whether I really wanted to see this movie or not and Matt & I decided that hey it's a Monday and we are not at work and this has to be entertaining so let's give it a whirl! Now a days action/thriller movies tend to have comedy hidden thru out the movie like in Transformers but I will tell you this movie sticks to the true genre of hard core action and on the edge of your seat turns! This movie was GREAT! I was so stressed out thru out it because it was so intense who doesn't love it when a movie evokes so much emotion from you? This movie also made you think... you had to pay attention and use your thinking caps to understand what is what and who is who. You don't need prior knowledge of the other Terminators to enjoy this movie at all, Matt had not seen any of the others and he loved this movie and said he can't wait to see the next (yes, the ending is left open) This movie is about the machines and the action so the characters play "second fiddle" in the back ground but that did not bother me much. I am a Christian Bale fan and although he is the star of this movie for me his co-star newcomer Sam Worthington (pictured below) stole the movie for me!! If you love action and love being on the edge of your seat this movie is for you!! And yes there may or may not be a cameo from another famous terminator! I give this movie two thumbs up and I can't wait for another sequel!

Christian Bale & Sam Worthington

Ok, back to the daily grind huh guys? (yuck) I will post again later and let you know what else I was up to over the holiday weekend and I have a great "gourmet sand which" recipe to share!

Our reviews of Night at the Museum couldn't be any more opposite. I loved it, but I do have an eight and eleven year old.
