Awesome! Could watch it over and over again, and probably will.
4/5=I liked it a lot! Worth watching.
3/5=Pretty good.
2/5=Okay. Wouldn't watch it again.
1/5=Didn't like it.

The Golden Compass: 4/5
I hadn't heard many good things about this movie, but I actually really enjoyed it--it was very interesting. I haven't read the book since middle school, but I remembered a few things as I watched. It doesn't seem to me like much of a kids movie, even though you would think so from the content. My sister was a bit confused, and I could understand why, especially in the beginning. Not the type of movie you can just sit down and watch brainlessly--you actually kind of have to pay attention to what people are saying and doing. I think the main actress (the girl) did a good job. My mom told me to "watch critically" and I did notice some rather obvious comparisons to religion or whatever, but quite honestly, I don't care about that. I watched for the story, and I liked it. I need to re-read the books now.

Strike/Strajk - Die Heldin von Danzig: 2/5
It's not my type of movie, so I'm biased--I only watched because my parents wanted me to. From IMDB: "A nearly illiterate woman becomes one of the founders of Poland's Solidarity union." It's not that it's a bad movie, it's just a bit depressing (not the whole thing, but a lot of parts). Katharina Thalbach, who plays the main character, Agnieszka, is a very good actress--her emotions really draw you in. Good movie, but I wouldn't watch it again.

Starsky & Hutch: 4/5
I'd been wanting to see this for a while. It was on TV, and I missed the first 20 minutes or so, but I caught the rest. It was really funny! I haven't seen the show, so I had nothing to base it on, but I want to see it now. Ben Stiller isn't one of my favorite actors because of the kind of comedy he does, but I can't deny that he's funny. And Owen Wilson? Dang, he's gorgeous, and let me tell you, they are soooo easy to slash. Starsky (Stiller's character) even said at one point that he preferred blondes (I squeed rather loudly at that and pointed at the screen saying Ha! You seeeee!) *ahem* But I digress. Very very entertaining.

La Misma Luna/Under the Same Moon: 4/5
Got to practice my Spanish with this movie, so that was cool (although my parents put on English subtitles *pouts*). Me gusté mucho! A nine-year-old boy crosses the Mexican border to try and find his mother, an illegal immigrant living in L.A. The main actor (the kid) was amazing--did a fabulous job. America Ferrera played a small part, and she was as gorgeous as usual. Eugenio Derbez, who plays a character named Enrique, is hilarious in the special features--you gotta watch those too. The ending is a bit of an "rgggh" moment (no, I won't explain that :P). The movie gives you a look into what life is like for illegal immigrants in the U.S.

Burn Notice-Season 1 finale: 5/5
OMG. I'm addicted to this show again. Let me just say, I'm actually glad that I didn't get to watch the season finale last summer, otherwise it would have been torture waiting this long for the show to come back on. I can't say much more without giving stuff away, but seriously, watch this show! (Jeffrey Donovan is reason enough). Oh, and Fi rocks.

Fear Itself-6/26 episode: 4/5
I watched this show for the first time simply because Maggie Lawson and James Roday co-starred in this episode. I had no idea what the show was about, but I may actually watch another episode, because it was really interesting. Usually I hate horror movies/shows, but this wasn't too gory (almost none), so I was kinda okay with it. After the first few minutes of watching it alone, though, I begged my mom to come down and watch it with me because it was SO creepy (suspense scares me more than anything else). Basically, on the day of her wedding, a bride gets an anonymous note telling her that the person she is about to marry is a serial killer. The wedding takes place in what I believe is the creepiest church I have ever seen: dark, lots of candles, and freaky religious statues. James scared me--like, he was really really scary, and I'll never look at Shawn the same way. It was cool seeing both of them in a different setting, though. And the ending? Awesome.

I don't know if you've heard of Goodsearch.com, but it's really really cool. You just enter a charity you want to help, and then every time you search, about 1 cent is given to that charity. I made mine to Students Helping Honduras, and it would be great if y'all would too. It's a great cause; basically there is an orphanage called Copprome in Honduras, and the girls there don't have much of a chance at a future after high school, and only one girl has managed to go to college in the entire time the orphanage has been there (I met her in my Spanish class a few days ago). Find out more at studentshelpinghonduras.org and/or the group on facebook.

A girl in my women's studies class had a very interesting/scary presentation today on Rape on College Campuses, and I thought I'd share a few things I learned.

-women ages 16-24 experience rape at rates 4 times higher than the assault rate of all women
-college women are more at risk than women of the same age who aren't in college
-almost 25% of college women have been victims of rape or attempted rape since age 14
-1 in 12 men say they forced a woman to have sexual intercourse with them against her will
-In an estimated 70-80 % of rapes the attacker was someone the victim knew
-fraternities and bars can be very dangerous: often there are no non-alcoholic drinks (other than water, maybe) available, there is very loud music (so meaningful conversation is impossible), men make derogatory remarks at women, there is an unequal distribution of the sexes, interactions are naturally flirtatious, bars allow underage students
-90 % of all reported campus rapes occur when alcohol is being used by either the assailant or the victim
-Media is a big part of rape culture: magazines, ads, tv, movies, internet ads, etc. can be very dehumanizing and sexually exploitative to women
-Women are objectified when only parts of their bodies are shown (i.e. long legs, nape of neck, etc.)

Dang, I'm scared to walk around now. What's wrong with this world? Anyway, spread the word - it's better to know than to be ignorant.
