New Movies HotOrNot (2006/12/15)

December 15, 2006

I’m switching things up a little bit. Instead of giving a one sentance review based on no criteria what-so-ever (I haven’t seen the movie yet), I’m going to rate it as a HOT pick, a NOT pick, or could go either way and repeat the plot in one sentance from IMDB.  I’ve also made a slight change to the formating on my movie site.

As you may have guess, the Christmas season is upon us and most of the releases are meh. As usual, click on read more to see more details about the movies.

Charlotte’s Web (2006) – HOT.
Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.

Eragon (2006) – HOT/NOT.
In his homeland of Alagaesia, a farm boy happens upon a dragon’s egg — a discovery that leads him on a predestined journey where he realized he’s the one person who can defend his home against an evil king.

Blood Diamond (2006) – HOT/NOT.
A farmer, a smuggler, and a syndicate of businessmen match wits over the possession of a priceless diamond.

The Holiday (2006) – HOT/NOT.
Two women troubled with guy-problems (Diaz, Winslet) swap homes in each other’s countries, where they each meet a local guy and fall in love.

The Pursuit of Happyness (2006) – HOT/NOT.
A struggling salesman (Will Smith) takes custody of his son (Jaden Smith) as he’s poised to begin a life-changing professional endeavor.

Apocalypto (2006) – HOT/NOT.
As the Maya kingdom faces its decline, the rulers insist the key to prosperity is to build more temples and offer human sacrifices. Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood), a young man chosen for sacrifice, flees the kingdom to avoid his fate.

We Are Marshall (2006) – NOT.
When a plane crash claims the lives of members of the Marshall University football team and some of its fans, the team’s new coach (McConaughey) and his surviving players try to keep the football program alive.

Unaccompanied Minors (2006) – NOT.
A group of unaccompanied minors bond while snowed in at Chicago’s fictional Hoover International Airport during the holiday season and ultimately create a makeshift holiday themselves.

Rocky comes out of retirement to go in the ring once again.

The Nativity Story (2006) – NOT.
