15 Second Reviews: Twilight: New Moon, The Blind Side & Planet 51

Twilight: New Moon:: Prepare for 2 hours of pain!! At best, this is a high school level mellow drama that wishes, one day, it could be a genuine soap opera. Ridiculous vampire makeups and mannerisms heighten the bad along with some laughably sub-par CGI werewolves. Edward and company make the vamp cows in Littlest Vampire seem creepy. AVOID!

The Blind Side:: This is the kind of movie that makes you feel like you should be a LOT more grateful for all the good things in our lives, and assures us that miracles do happen. This is also the sweetest, most sincere movie I've seen in years. Grabs your heart tight and doesn't let go, yet is consistently funny as well. EVERYONE in it is fantastic. See this immediately and if you are easily choked up, bring some tissues!

Planet 51:: A light, fairly funny movie with the genius concept that a human lands on an alien planet that has some significant tech advances, but is experiencing their version of our 50's!! Unfortunately, its as if the execs meddled with the script and inserted "kid friendly" wacky chase scenes and diatribe on the moral of the story, spelled out painfully clearly. Hysterical moments and generally fun, but not a must see.
