Many of you may not know this, but I'm a really big movie buff. I like just about any type of movie, as long as it's quality.

Today, the Hubby and I went and saw Jumper. Over all I give it a B-. I enjoyed the movie, however there were sooo many pieces missing to the plot. There was no back story, however we were supposed to believe in a century long rivalry. The love story didn't develop, it just happened. And the ending screamed sequel....but there was nothing to back that up. I know I'm being vague, but I don't want to give away too many details. Also, the lead female character was flat. She knows how to play one roll and one roll only. There was absolutely no depth to her character. I won't even go into all the plot lines that didn't go anywhere... really, they just dropped right out of the movie. I guess when you have 5 or 6 plot lines in one movie, a few of them a bound to suffer.

All that being said, there was a great deal to enjoy. I know, complicated right? The concept was fantastic! And all the special effects were breathtaking! The supporting male was this witty little British guy that you can't help but love. Wow, it's so much easier to describe all the poor aspects to a movie. The good ones always come out as... "It was so good!" I''l have to work on my descriptive abilities.

Don't worry, Smackers. If and when I have a real bun in the old oven, I'll tell you to your face (or phone you, depending on how far away your face is).
