I Am Number 4 and more Free Cineplex movies

Over the past few weeks I have been able to watch several more movies for free using my General Mills Cineplex movie passes.

These include True Grit, 127 Hrs, No Strings Attached and yesterday I Am Number Four.

True Grit and 127 Hours were both exceptional, although that was to be expected given their Tomatometer ratings (95% & 93% respectively).

No Strings Attached was a pleasant surprise.  Romantic comedies of this nature normally don’t fare very well with critics and here it shows with a modest 51% Tomatometer rating, but my wife and I enjoyed it immensely.  In fact, half way through the movie my wife informed me that “we’re buying this movie”.

Of all of the movies being released in February, I Am Number Four was the movie I anticipated the most.  Honestly, when it comes to Sci-Fi movies, all I need to know is the title and release date and I will be there; especially when I can see it for free.  Luckily, we all really enjoyed it.  The special effects were excellent, the acting was pretty good and the story was really interesting.  The movie is clearly set up as an introduction to a movie series and I really hope that happens, although the box office numbers don’t leave me with much hope.  If a sequel never happens, I will probably have to pick up the next book in the series, titled The Power of Six, which is set to be released this summer.
