"Ratatouille" [8.7/10] I'm not much for animated films. However, I knew that my wife, who is into the culinary arts, would enjoy this film, and I knew it would be a good test for my new blu-ray/HDTV system. It does look and sound awesome. [9.7/10] The story is a cute story.
First, because of everyone's performances, especially Christian Bale's. It would've been so easy to try to compete with Heath Ledger in the madness or passionate themes, but they all stayed true to their character. Also, they manage not to become just spectators of what's happening with the Joker but to be part of the story nonetheless.
Second, because of Heath's Performance, with a capital P. Just has so much grip on the character. Even in the most insane moments (think about the interrogation with Batman in the mirrored room), he puts some emotion and feeling to it and makes the character disturbingly human.
Third, because of the story. Killing one of your main characters in the middle of the movie is always a very hazardeous move, but they managed to put it in a very believable way.
8/10: At first it seemed like a crappy 'man meets woman, they fall in love, have kid, live happy' movie. But every now and then there were gentle hints as to what was happening at the time until finally something interesting happened. I quite liked it.
"Transformers" [8.1/10] I avoided seeing this film for a long time. "A movie based on children's toys!" (I tend to avoid films based on toys, cartoon characters, and video games...) It turned out to be interesting visually, obviously a CGI fest. Quality of sound was impressive. Story was far-fetched even for a sci-fi film. However, once I just accepted the story-line it was entertaining.
Based on a Manga. The extreme violence and sex fit's into to plot so well, my jaw dropped near the end. And the main lead does a great job of show how deranged he is. If you like Kill Bill, you'll like this even more as they both share the theme of vengeance. I can't believe I missed this one for so long. It was released in 2003.
Don't watch with your kids as it's definitely not family friendly. And if you have any pent-up rage, this may relieve it somewhat. It's so ******** powerful it made Quentin Tarantino cry at the Cannes film festival where it won the Grand Prix.
There's nothing wrong with Rachel Weisz, she just wasn't in the movie... I guess she didn't want to take up the roll again or she wasn't considered for it because it is another 10 years or so in the future and she looks too young still? I have no idea.. I wish she was in it tho.

"Why so serious?"
I also watched Wall-E, it's a very fun kids movie, some parts go on for too long though. 8/10
