Only a few months late, I am finally getting up to date with my Fan of the Month requests. Next up is Fernando’s Mexican horror Somos Lo Que Hay. Thankfully it’s a horror that won’t end in a sleepless night tonight. Hopefully, anyway.

I even watched the Alien vs. Predator spin offs, although they’re both so awful I didn’t indulge my anger and post my thoughts.

The title is misleading; it’s really not super although I so wanted it to be.
Hoffman vs. Streep – whose side are you going to be on? It’s so hard not to love him in this brilliant performance.
It’s not The Hangover, but Galifianakis unfortunately plays the same role in both. Hurray for RDJ!
Even though Reynolds is brilliant, this is probably one to avoid if you suffer from claustrophobia

Tarantino manages to create the most evil baddie I’ve witnessed on screen, it’s just not enough to make the film amazing
