Terminator Salvation or Battle of the Robots

Terminator Salvation - (3 stars)

Perhaps one of the most popular things to do right now in Hollywood is to "reboot" a franchise. Rebooting a franchise could entail making a sequel, prequel or even a complete redo. Reboots have successfully happened to Indiana Jones and Batman, so why not the popular Terminator franchise?

Introduction/ Top Movies of 2009 (so far)

I've decided to try my hand at doing a movie review blog. I've found myself more and more lately keeping a running review tally in my head as I watch movies, so I figure it is only natural to create a blog to get the reviews out of my head and onto the web (I have enough trouble remembering things, I don't need movie reviews taking up valuable head space). So, as I watch movies I will post a review using a 5 point scale. I guess I'll stick with stars for now, but maybe at some point I'll get more creative and use something else (ideas anyone?). Feel free to recommend movies for me to see and I'll do my best to watch them.

To further inaugurate this blog, I will start by listing my current top movies of 2009. There are a lot that I have yet to see but have reserved, so I may edit this list at that point. I'll even include movies I haven't seen, but intend to, so you can fill in the missing pieces. Without further "jibberjab", I present "Mock's Top 5 Movies of 2009...(so far)":
