KICK-ASS is violent, hilarious, bloody, and all kinds of awesome

Rating:  (Masterpiece)

Is it violent? Sure. Is it morally reprehensible? Probably. Does it feature a young girl beating the hell out of people and getting beaten within an inch of her life? Yes. Will your girlfriend like it? This ain't The Notebook. Kick-Ass is hilarious and brutal. If you don't believe violent movies are ruining society (I, for one, think we'll be OK), it's also the best action/comedy since Zombieland.

Like Zombieland, Kick-Ass stars an awkward teenager who gets mixed up in an ever more violent situation. However, unlike Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) from Zombieland, Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) does not get caught up in the end of the world: he causes his own problems. Dave is kind of a nobody. He isn't a great athlete, and he isn't good at being a geek. Like most kids his age, he "simply exists," trying to make it through his days without hassle.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3D is DreamWorks' best animated movie since SHREK

Rating:

I didn't expect much after seeing its trailer, but How to Train Your Dragon is not your typical Dreamworks animated movie. For the first time in a long time, the studio has stepped up its game and produced something memorable. Dragon is a DreamWorks movie on par with Pixar. Though it's based loosely on a book from Cressida Cowell, it is also one of the best video game movies I've seen, blending elements from some of the warmer Legend of Zelda games and the visceral feel of Panzer Dragoon. Children, parents, gamers, adults, and even cynics will find something to enjoy.
