I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

In Time:

Release Date: Oct. 28, 2011
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Director: Andrew Niccol
Genre: Thriller
Rating: PG-13 (for Violence, some sexuality and partial nudity, & brief strong language)
Website: TheRichCanLiveForever.com
Short Summary: In the future where time is literally money, and aging stops at 25 the only way to stay alive is to earn, steal or inherit more time. Will Salas lives life a minute a time until someone gives him access to the world of the wealthy. Here he teams up with a beautiful heiress to destroy a corrupt system.

My Thoughts:

This one looks and sounds really good. I can't imagine living in a world where time is your money. If you had to pay 4 mins. of your life for a cup of coffee would you still drink coffee? Most people don't live past 25 unless they have the money to trade it in for more time. I am turning 26 this year so I would probably already be dead how cruel is that. This movie is def one I will be seeing soon, and might even write a review about.

Puss in Boots:

Release Date: Oct. 28, 2011
Studio: Dreamworks
Director: Chris Miller
Genre: Adventure, Animation, Comedy, Fantasy
Rating: PG (for some adventure action & mild rude humor)
Website: Pussinbootsthemovie.com
Short Summary: Long before he met Shrek the notorious Puss in Boots becomes a hero when he sets off on an adventure with a streets smart cat Kitty Softpaws and the mastermind Humpty Dumpty to save his town.

My Thoughts:

This seems like it would be a great movie for the family. I loved all the Shrek movies. They are great fun for both young and old. I will probably wait until this one comes out on DVD though.
