Canterlot High decided to throw a Battle of the Bands but a trio of sinister new comers vow to break up the harmonious event. To solve this problem, the girls (including Sunset Shimmer) summoned Twilight for help in this musical animation bound to please all the fans.

Diane Lane starred in this cliche thriller about a serial killer who murders his victims through view counts on his website. Despite the strong performance from Lane, Untraceable only served as a more sophisticated version of Fear.net.

I really did not like the style the film used, also the acting was rubbish. I was practically bored to death. Michelle Fairley starred in this film, possibly the only reason why I watched it.
A ground breaking film to challenge the taboo of the German culture.… MoreA ground breaking film to challenge the taboo of the German culture. Made with a shoestring budget, Taxi Zum Klo is a marvelous film looking at the struggles Ripploh himself faces as a public school teacher in the day, but an active hustler at night. The explicit content was sure to shock many, I thought the use of jumpcuts with vintage pornography was quite a clever twist in terms of editing. Taxi Zum Klo was also hilarious to watch with its use of awkward comedy. Perhaps not for everyone but certainly an interesting piece of art house gem.

Ben Foster starred as Coporal Bower who must try to save the spaceship from destroying itself when it is all there is left for the humanity, unfortunately something more sinister is lurking within the ship and he must fight for the survival or human race. I really liked the premise, it's a Lovecraftian tale of the unknown in the outerspace, but with a twist on the capacity of the human race to survive and the debate on population control. I think the message wasn't well recieved as I was viewing this film but after thinking about the message I realised how clever the writing is. The problem with the film were the unrealistic setting and slow pacing, otherwise this German-American production had a lot of potential.

Penelope had an unusual cast from veteran actors, Ricci was simply adorable and McAvoy fitted his role perfectly. It was also nice to see Woods and Dinklage. But Witherspoon, why even was her in the film, her character had no point in the plot at all and only appeared for less than 10 minutes. Aside from the uneven writing, some of the gags were unfunny, the emotions just seemed way to exaggerated and I felt like Witherspoon was reading her lines.
Overall Penelope offered a cute story with a good moral lesson but the script and direction were its ultimate disappointment.
