Beasts of the Southern Wild: 7!! this movie was really really good. It is about a little girl, told from her point of view, about living in the bayou in Louisiana with her father. A hurricane comes through, flooding the place and changing their lives. It's definitely magical realism, or more like what life is like to you when you're 5 and everything is magical. Highly recommended but be prepared to cry; B and I both were at the end.
Easy A: I had to watch a teen movie for my YA lit class and chose this because i like Emma Stone and my friend D recommended it. it's quite clever and worth a watch. a 6.
The Heat: I am not normally big on comedies but D had free passes to a preview showing. It was the weirdest movie experience i've ever had; the theater wouldn't let anyone in with a cell phone and was actually wanding people to make sure you didn't take it in. Once inside and waiting for the movie, it was the loudest I'd heard in a theater in years. As no one had a phone, everyone was talking to their neighbors! The movie was funny. Sandra Bullock is the straight-laced FBI agent while Melissa McCarthy is the freewheeling vice cop. They have to team up to catch a drug lord. I hope it does well. a 5.
Zero Dark Thirty: Intense but not as intense as i worried. Slow in parts and in other parts i was biting my nails. a 6.
