The Magician's Nephew

I read all of the Chronicles of Narnia books as a kid but never this one (I don't think). C.S. Lewis' wrote this one second to last but actually intended it to be read first in the series. I want to read this and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe before I watch the movie that came out last year.

Four Brothers

Rating: 3.5/5

Get it from Amazon.com.

Really good mindless action. The Funky Bunch, Tyrese, Andre 3000, and Garrett Hedlund actually come off as brothers who care about each other and might truly be pissed about what happened to their mother. Some good twists and maybe not the best plot but one you want to follow to the end.

Terrence Howard is good again in a very small role.

The Matador

Read more reviews.

Funny movie. Came highly recommended and definitely was good for a few laughs. Pierce Brosnan is perfect in the part of a washed up assassin and just is a guy who can't cut it anymore. Funny and a little wacko he and Greg Kinnear make a great team as a hitman and a business man.

Probably worthy of a rental when it comes out at the end of April.

Walk the Line

Great movie and definitely deserving of all the praise it's received. I really didn't know a ton of the story, certainly not the June Carter end of things. Joaquin Phoenix was great and Reese Witherspoon was wonderful and adorable.

Elizabethtown

Not perfect but much better than most of the reviews claim. Kirsten Dunst is cute in it (it's kind of hit and miss with her lately) and Orlando Bloom played his first role that he wasn't a complete woman. Good random conversations between the two of them but the ending was really crap.
