The Ghost writer is a film about a guy who takes a big opportunity job to "Ghost write" for a former British Prime Minister.

Green zone stars Matt Damon and is a war movie type drama. It is based on what is going on in the Middle East and what America is doing over there. The movie is also based on the search for WMD's or Weapons of Mass Destruction. It is a descent thriller based on true stuff that is going on over there but some aspects of it could have been better. 'Green Zone' still receives 7 out of 10 for a rating which is pretty good. It is worth watching if you like war movie dramas.
6. Wall Street 2 (7 out of 10)
'Wall Street 2' is just packed full of twists and turns. It is very detailed and is perfect for someone who wants that type of drama movie. It is based on wall street greed, something we all have had to suffer the consequences of in this global recession we are going through. 'Wall Street 2' shows just what greed can do to someone and even what it can do to the people around you. I think you will enjoy it if you are in the mood for a movie that's not like all the others.
7. Extraordinary Measures (6 out of 10)
This is a brilliant picture based on a true story staring Harrison Ford. Some of these true story movies can be a little far fetched once Hollywood gets ahold of them but overall this movie was believable. The acting was good and so was the story. Its a great story of how far one couple went to save their children from Pompe disease. 'Extraordinary Measures' will keep you guessing until the very end.
8. The Book of Eli (6 out of 10)
This is my personal best drama movie of 2010 and quite frankly it could be my favorite movie of all time. I found the story to be absolutely amazing and touching at times. It has the right amount of action and drama mixed in. Denzel Washington plays a old man on a journey in a cruel world. The acting is brilliant and the story is actually fun. You will be on the edge of your seat the whole time and the ending will blow your mind.

It has been many years since a Robin Hood movie has came out. Now that one has been produced is it any good is the question? Many say yes and a few do say no.

It is a action packed and suspenseful movie and if you like movies like that I am sure you will like it. Could it have been better? The answer is yes but it also could have been worse. Is it worth watching? In my opinion yes, I think you will enjoy it.
