Whahaha! A movie you wouldn't need a brain to appreciate! Whahaha! I commend the perpetrators of this movie for coming up with something like this to rattle the land.
This movie will shove into your face the reality of how hard-headed and insensitive people can be when it comes to the issue of pollution and global warming.
If you just want to have some fun, watch a movie and feel like you got something out of it then try watching this movie. You'll have loads to laugh at, promise.
Cars, Machines, Robots, US-government, hot marines, a geeky kinda guy with a hot chick. At first I was hesitant to watch this film. For pete's sake, I was scared when I watched their trailer! I felt uncomfortable watching big robots in the big screen with matching boom box(es) to amplify the sounds of crash and explosion. But thank God I heeded the call of triumphant reviews about the movie...It was really great! Suddenly I can emphatize with the guys with all their fascination with cars and action-filled movies. Hahaha!
Talk about testosterone-driven movie, this movie delivers it nicely! If you haven't seen the movie then you better drag your asses to the theaters and watch it in the big screen. You'll love the robots as much as you'll adore Shia's performance in the movie.

The fifth installment starts brightly as the plot of the story of Harry Potter comes to a dark turn. The Dark Lord is back and the wizarding world is torn between the grim truth and the denial of the Ministry of Magic that they are once again under threat. The Order of the Phoenix, re-organized by Dumbledore to thwart the effort/s of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named in gathering his army and his other - plan. Aside from having to live under the impression of being a liar, Harry has to deal with a new enemy - Umbridge.
The added casts wonderfully portrayed their characters, especially Tonks (played by) who made her character more charming. We get to see more of Gary Oldman here (weeeeeee) and more emotions from the main characters. Special effects were superb especially in the fireworks scene. I just felt that it could have been more dramatic just like in the book.
Some of the those who have read the book might have noticed that some characters and events have been altered, merged or totally excluded in the movie. I was hoping to see Sirius' mother and Mundungus Fletcher. People would have loathed Kreacher if they have included his participation in the book. If you think Umbridge gave the color pink a bad name, she was even more evil in the book than in the movie.
But in fairness, the movie gave justice to the book in general. Although I felt that the story of Sirius and his realtionship as Harry's godfather could have been, well...more expounded in some sense. Then, the impact of the loss to the viewer would have been more....devastating.
As written in the final chapter of the fifth book I quote, "The Second War Begins".

This anime is a spin-off from the movie, Blood: The Last Vampire. Set 10 years after the story from the movie, Saya Otonashi is living a normal life as a student, sister and daughter in Okinawa, Japan with her adoptive family. Afflicted by a temporary amnesia, she has no idea of who and what she really is.
Then one night, she was attacked by a creature called a Chiropteran and Saya is forced to face her past as she is the only one that can defeat the monstrous creatures living to kill for blood.
Seriously, I am addicted to this anime. I love the complexities of the characters and the conflicts that they have to struggle with. The blood and the violence can be forgiven (besides, it is really needed in the story). Again, the plot of the nature of humans here is interesting.
