Cold Souls

I watched in without really paying attention to it and over two days so that skewed my opinion of the movie I am sure. I didn't like it, I didnt really get it, and it just seemed very blah hense that having to break up the watching into two days, but to be fair I stopped watching it yesterday because I was interrupted with family stuff.

But the basic outline of the movie is that souls can be extracted from people and stored to lighten your burden and you can put another soul into your body. Paul Giamatti is the main character and he gets his soul extracted so he can get through a tough play he is in, but without a soul he cant act so he puts in a russian poets soul and then realizes he wants his soul back but it is missing. Hilarity ensues (not really).

Just watched Irina Palm (http://movies.nytimes.com/2008/03/21/movies/21palm.html)on the Sundance channel. Interesting premise and more than a bit slow at times, but overall, I really enjoyed it only because of Marianne Faithfull. Anyone else seen this? It's a British film and didn't have a wide release here, so it's one of those little psuedo.gems that no one's probably seen. It's about an older woman who is forced to take a job in a sex shop.....and it's not near as tittilating as you'd think. At it's core, it's more about an older woman dealing with change and tough circumstances.

I have spoken on a number of occasions and even started or highly contributed to a thread on this movie so it is known how much I like this movie. It had been a few years since watching it or at least well over a year and I still enjoyed it very much. It holds up very well even now, still had its surprises and I noticed even more small things within the movie that I hadn't before. If you havent seen this movie i would recommend it.

Great movie. I wasn't expecting that much violence but that just made the movie that much better. Lots of really cool death, very creative, lots of asses being kicked and just a cool enough story line. I would recommend.

Robin Hood

It was a good movie...but it just lacked something to make it memorable. Basically if you go in to this movie expecting jolly Robin Hood tales, then you are in the wrong mindset. I wanted to see this interpretation of Robin Hood cause I prefer my movies to be a bit more gritty and raw. In that aspect I liked it...

However it was miles away from other greats such as Gladiator and Braveheart...I think its because the story did not make the audience attach to the main character and to root/cheer for him...we were left more in the lines of watching everything and not really get attached emotionally...

Having said that, I would really like it if they did part two with this style and see what comes out from it...

Iron Man 2

I thought the setup, the first 45 minutes or so were really good. I liked the direction I thought the movie was going, I enjoyed the Senate scene a lot and the scene on the track was really good and memorable. But then tyhe movie got bogged down, convoluted and the ending seemed rushed. Not sure what happened or why, seemed like they didn't know what to do with the second half, or they edited too much out. And I thought most of the humor fell flat.

So what grade can I give a movie that was really good for the first 45 minutes and then stunk after that

I went and saw it yesterday and I completely agree. It was a good movie and like you I like my movies a bit more gritty and raw and not as tame as say Kevin Costner's Robin Hood.

The emotional attachment to Crowe's character was definitely lacking compared to Gladiator or Bravehart.

I've seen so much "gritty and raw" TV/movies that I'd actually be up for something different.

Roger Ebert had a quote I liked at the top of his review of Robin Hood that, to a point, I agree with: "Little by little, title by title, innocence and joy is being drained out of the movies."

With that said, if this movie were getting better reviews I'd still be up for seeing it, but it sounds very mediocre, and I don't really care to see it right away. I'll probably rent it later.

The Fourth Kind

I'm a big fan of Sci-Fi/Horror movies, especially ones about aliens/apocalypse stuff so I'm a little biased in this review, but I loved this movie. It's definitely one of the better done movies about aliens. Milla Jovovich was great like always and they did a great job of incorporating the real life footage into the movie. Definitely a must see if you're into this kind of thing.

Just saw Robin Hood.

How you can go for almost 2 & 1/2 hours and have zero character development is beyond me.

It's like someone said, let's take Russell Crowe and put him in an action movie where he can act all stoic and serene while chaos is going on around him, then they decided to make the Robin Hood story. In other words it's like they tried to put Ridley Scott and Russel Crowe together again then decided the film instead of having a film in mind and deciding that Russel Crowe and Ridley Scott would be perfect for it.

I mean technically it wasn't a bad film and I kept seeing things that made me want to see more, but when I say more I mean deeper more not just more action on the screen.

The only real problem I have with this is that this is definately an older Robin Hood & Maid Marion so I don't know if I buy the whole "adventure begins" tone of the movie.

The fight scene on the beach with the French was really kind of pointless and well frankly the whole French thing was pointless.

Like was said above you really walked away from this one not caring about any one character.

I'd rate this about a C.

First Blood.

Never saw it before (or part 2 or 3; though I've seen the recent "Rambo").

Pretty good. Though I don't understand why the sheriffs were such dicks to begin with. Seemed unprovoked and they didn't give a reasonable motivation for it. I mean am I really supposed to think they'd treat a war vet like **** just because he was a drifter?

Letting that go, I otherwise thought it was pretty good and I'm glad to have finally seen it. Not sure how hot I am to see 2 or 3, though, as I heard it gets a lot campier.

As a matter of fact, I even watched it a second time later today with Sylvester Stallone giving an audio commentary (that I assume was recorded fairly recently). He's pretty good at giving insight into the filming of the movie, the story, and his character.

I know in the book, Rambo was much more of a hippie drifter. And good ol' boys of the era really hated hippies. The cops think they're keeping the smelly hippie out of their town, not realizing that a war veteran could be dressed like that.

The movie just gets John Rambo's attire wrong. The guy looks former military all the way, and you have to up the "local sheriffs are dicks" factor in order to move the plot along in the way it's supposed to go.

The "schtick" of course is that Rambo turns out to be the macho hero guy with post traumatic stress disorder who goes on a rampage. Before this, movie rampages were often perpetrated by "heros" like Dirty Harry ("Go ahead, punk.") who god all kinds of fan worship for blowing away dirty long hairs like Rambo.

Then there were lonely psychos like Travis Bickle, but that's a whole other thing.

Eventually, you didn't even need much of an excuse to go on a killing rampage, so the planet had to endure a bajillion action movies that had no shtick at all (other than the governator pretending to be from California).

That take on the Robin Hood story would have been really interesting. Given that debacle no wonder the movie was so short on character development.

I agree with Peck that the fight scene at the end with French just seemed so lackluster. I like the French coming to England while the English were fighting among themselves, but the last battle just seemed like a big letdown given the gravity of a French invasion.

Do yourself the favor and just skip parts 2 & 3.

I would have told you to spare yourself the entire Rambo movie as well but since you have already seen it, no harm done.

First Blood however was totally differant from all of the movies that followed.

As L.A. pointed out what you were supposed to get from John Rambo walking through small Washington town (or was it OR?, I'm not sure) is that he looked like a hippy drifter who hadn't bathed, wore military clothing (which was somewhat of an insult to the guys that wore the uniform back then when a Hippie would dare to mock them by wearing the uniform) and generally looked like he had nothing to do but cause trouble. Small town Police wanting to "keep his town safe". If you'll notice the original cop didn't start off by being a total tool. He was polite but firm and did offer him a ride out of town. I'm not saying he wasn't wrong but it's not like he started swinging the night stick the moment he saw him.

Also, and I can't emphasize this enough, you have to understand the context of the movie in the time frame from which it existed.

This was shown in 1982 which was 28 years ago (wow that is a long time when I type it out like that). The Vietnam war has been over now for 35 years so to someone like you it would be like me watching a movie about the Korean war. In other words ancient history. However you have to understand that when this film came out the war had officially only been over for 7 years and unofficially for about 4 to 5 years depending on if you believe some story's about spec. ops. teams still there in 77 or 78. So the wounds were fresh then and for obvious reasons the Vietnam war tore a real rift in our nation and this movie hit on at a time that was perfect for a movie like this to take off.

I have argued for years with people who just claim that this is a mindless shootem up film. I understand that this is an action film and no I won't deny that they did add a lot of action to spice up the film, but there is a real story here and I think a very deep story at that. That is why I used to get all pissy with people who called the film Rambo, because they were doing that to insult the film because films 2 & 3 were just action films that the writers used to just play out the character as a revenge for all of America's woe's at the time. Part 2 had us going back to Vietnam and rescuing P.O.W.'s who were still being held hostage (believe me there were more than a few people who to this day still believe that Vietnam is holding P.O.W.'s) so this tapped into a very popular topic at the time (again think time frame as it was still only 10 years after the war this time). Part three while set in Afghanistan (Ironic that he probably was fighting along side the Taliban at the time considering today's world) was really nothing more than a we can kick Commie @ss whenever we need to.

Again, you've seen the important one. You've even seen the last one.

Stop there and move on to Rocky now.:)

Hicks
05-25-2010, 12:51 AM
I've seen all of the Rocky movies, some of them (well, in parts at least) I've seen many times growing up.

I've never purposefully sat down as an adult to go through them (except for seeing Rocky 6 as an adult), though. I may do that later on.

As for First Blood, Stallone was pretty insightful regarding the true character and story of this film, and it's certainly not mindless like mainstream audiences probably remember.

This guy is right on the thin line between man and animal (or war machine, if you like) due to his past.

When you first see John, he's not on that fence; he's a man who just wants a peaceful post-war life.

But once he finds out the last of his war friends is dead, that's the end of John's life, in a way. He's essentially done, and it's just a matter of how much he falls into being a war machine versus just living a purposeless existence wandering the countryside.

Circumstances obviously unleash the beast, and the movie plays that out.

Apparently the original story doesn't have John riding the fence like Stallone insisted on, and that Rambo just kills pretty much everyone.

Like when he comes across the kid hunting with his dad, he slaughters them all originally (apparently), but for the movie he spares them (and a lot of the sheriffs for that matter). Sly seems to have played a big role in shaping the Rambo we see on the screen.

Fascinating to me, too, were these two nuggets:

1) Earlier on, there was a 3 1/2 hour cut (a whopping 2 additional hours over what we ultimately get at a lean 90 minutes) and it apparently sucked.
2) Originally his army boss (colonel, I think?) was played by Kirk Douglas, who insisted on a ton of changes (I would dare say bizarre changes; including his character "going Rambo" too and ultimately strapping John to the hood of his car as he drives off at the end of the flick). Needless to say, they couldn't see eye to eye and Kirk abandoned the project when his ideas were not adopted.

Stallone mentions how he didn't like it when Ronald Reagen said something like "Rambo is a Republican" because according to Stallone, it's actually far from it. John Rambo isn't a patriot; he hates the military/country for what they turned him into. They're the enemy to him. It only gets worse when he returns home and is called a baby killer, etc.

First Blood is a tragedy in an action flick's clothing.

Oh, and I liked "Rambo" when I saw it. Didn't love it, but liked it. It seemed to return back to who John is/was, while also embracing how much of a badass he (I'm assuming) is in the previous sequels with ripping out throats and that kind of thing.

The Descent Part 2

They shouldn't have wasted their time.

The whole thing just felt cheaper (characters, plot, the way it was shot/edited) and their best solution for making up for that was to be more disgusting.

It had one nice jump-out scare (jumping out from the dark when I'm looking at the night-vision on the other half of the screen), and I dug having Juno still toughing it out down there (well, ignoring how they glaze over he knee injury), but really I can't get this baby sent back to Netflix fast enough. :laugh:

Saw several movies over the weekend

The Wolfman - boring, just boring. I often enjoy restrained or low key thrillers, but this movie was just boring. And extremely forgettable.

It's Complicated - extremely entertaining, several funny scenes, but more than anything highly watchable and entertaining.

The Stepfather - really insulting - but I will admit it held my attention throughout, but most of the time i was yelling at the screen saying how stupid can you be to the characters,.

Bad Lieutenant: Port of NO. - Finally a good role for Nick Cage - really over-the-top movie, but oddly entertaining. if you are in the right mood this can be good.

Prince of Persia - have you ever sat through a whole movie and when it was over you could not tell anyone what the plot was about, not one thing. Not sure my mind has ever wandered more during a movie.

from what I have seen and I realize we are only 5 months in but I think 2010 has been a horrible year for movies and I am talking about movies released in 2010 - not some of the Oscar type movies released at the tail end of 2009.

I read I think in USA Today that there are actually fewer movies this summer and fewer big budget movies because of the recession and the 2008 writers strike.

I was looking forward to Robin Hood but it was a bit of a disappointment for me as it did not have that heavy epicness as Gladiator or Braveheart did...Iron Man 2 was also "meh"...nothing memorable...

Backdraft

I remember hearing about this movie when it first came out and I wasn't old enough to watch it but I always thought I had seen it. It is a pretty great movie though. Stars Billy Baldwin, Kurt Russell and Robert De Niro. It is about two brothers (Baldwin & Russell) who follow in their father's footsteps by becoming firemen, one brother Steven (Russell) knew he wanted to be a fireman from an early age and has become the team leader in NC17 in Chicago while Brian (Baldwin) never knew if he could make it and tries his had. An arsonist is setting backdraft fires around the city that are killing people and Brian and Donald (De Niro) work together as Fire Inspectors trying to find the common link.


I enjoyed it. I was surprised I hadn't seen it before. Well done, believable fires, good acting and a pretty good storyline. Some parts were predictable but they did it in a good way. Directed by Ron Howard.

It was interesting first watching Letters From Iwo Jima and seeing the Japanese side of the story and then watching Flag Of Our Fathers and seeing familiar scenes but form the American side. I am now wondering if these films are connected by more than just Clint Eastwood being the director in both. It was an alright film, dragged on a little bit. I enjoyed Letters From Iwo Jima more.

I've always been a movie buff. I used to go to the movies and take in two movies back to back. Then I started renting movies and I would watch three or four back to back. (You can do that when your not married.)

However, most movies coming out today I find boring. My son knows what kind of movies I like and gave me a copy of Avatar to watch. That was about two weeks ago. Since then he's asked me a couple times if I had watched it yet.

I watched it today and I thought it was great! So great I'm going to go out and buy myself a copy!

The Cove

A great film about a horrible action that goes on in Taiji, Japan every September. It is the film about the slaughter of dolphins that happens every year from September-March and around 23,000 dolphins are killed for their meat that contains an unhealthy amount of mercury that is poisoning the people who eat it making the slaughter absolutely useless. The city of Taiji is trying to keep the whole thing under wraps so that the world doesn't realize what is going on.

It was a well done documentary, with great footage of the actual slaughter, sounds of the dolphins being slaughtered and it won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary so on the level alone it was very good, held my attention and made me really ****ing pissed off about the whole thing.

The A-Team

Went with Grace, our brother and 14-year old niece. Did not expect much going in, but we were all rather shocked at how much we liked it. Really captured the spirit of the show, a great deal of laugh-out-loud humor. Even the :rollout: moments were better than I expected, like the flying tank. Easily the best fun action movie I've seen since the first Iron Man.

As an aside, for anyone who saw The Losers a couple months back, it's shocking how much they copied from this. I knew it was an A-team ripoff, and that Hollywood cannibalizes scripts, but when "Port of Los Angeles" came up on the screen I practically groaned. Thankfully, even though the finale is the worst part of this film, it's still much better than what they cobbled together for Losers.

[edit] Also, for District 9 fans, while Neeson and Cooper acquit themselves well, Copley steals the show. Hard to believe he never acted before.

The weird thing about this movie is that I remember laughing quite a bit, but when the movie was over I couldn't remember or describe the funny parts of the movie. OK, I remembered the lyrics to "Bangers Beans and Mash". That was funny as hell.

It was also good to see a drug movie where drug use was neither glorified nor outright condemned. The characters did seem to sober up unrealistically fast, however.

This is the sequel to Rob Zombie's remake of John Carpenter's Halloween series. I assume most movie goers have seen at least one Halloween movie in there day and heard about he Rob Zombie remakes. I enjoyed the first one a great deal, gave a new outlook, delved into the Mike Myers character and just had some great gore. This movie however was just really weird, seemed like they were trying too hard or something but just some stupid themes, some stupid scenes and then the predictability and ridiculousness of the old Halloween movies, but the end was very unexpected. Good gore, good gratuitous nudity and lots of death, so still enjoyable but not as good as number his first try.

Actually watched 3 movies yesterday.

Toy Story 3
I think it was overhyped for me. I was expecting a grandslam, and I got a 2run HR. I really can't complain, but I expected more. At the end, I did look over at my GF and she had tears running down her face. Even though she cries at the drop of a hat, I still didn't think it would be able to get that kind of reaction from a viewer.

I'm really glad it didn't go with the usual, and had Lotso find redemption. Him screwing over Woody and bunch, and then getting tied on to the bumper was a lot better than him coming in and saving the day by turning off the belt.

She's Out of Your League
Eh. I didn't expect much from it, and it delievered in that aspect. It was so stupid, it was funny. I know Belli said she wasn't as hot as the movie was trying to portray, which I kind of agree with, but I forgot all about that when she took off that dress.

When In Rome
Ummm... bad. Just plain awful. I actually like chick flicks. I'll watch them by myself, even if I've never saw it before. I don't really know why, but I like the corny comedy of them. They're the most predictable movies, but I still find them mildly entertaining.

With that said. Again, just plain awful. I would expect that a straight to DVD movie. It just didn't hit on any level. Although I will say, LT's cameo with what has happened with him in the past month or so made me chuckle. That was probably the highlight of the movie for me, and if it's something that stupid/small, you know it was just a horrible movie.

It's not even that, really, it's just that not a lot is really even going on in these things. They're more like three-part episodes of a would-be TV show. With the plot of maybe a two-part episode. Maybe.

And you know, it bugs me that for all the time Edward and the others talk about how awful it is to be a vampire, the movie sure does a terrible job of actually SHOWING ME why it's so terrible. He keeps going on about losing your soul, yet clearly he's capable of loving someone and being a good, caring person, so what exactly is so damning about being a vamp in this universe? I mean it's not perfect, but compared to other universes with vampires, they've got it pretty good.

Nightmare on Elm Street 2 and 3

2 was "meh". Not bad, though. Just forgettable. It was hilarious hearing the lead actor literally scream like a girl multiple times (and I'm guessing that wasn't in the script) :laugh:

3, however, was a pleasant surprise. Pretty good stuff, and it would have wrapped that story up well had they left it alone.

But no, I have part 4, 5, 6, and 7 and to get to. :sigh: I've known for years how many of these things there are, and I've seen bits and pieces of a few of them before, but now that I've seen 3, it's a shame they didn't let it end there because the story/writing, the characters/actors, Freddy's powers/world, the effects were all pretty damn good in this one, and they try to wrap things up (effectively, IMO).

Guess that's horror franchises for you.

In fact, I believe they're filming Scream 4 right now.....

YES!!!!!

the first few early reviews for Inception are overwhelmingly positive. Although often times the very early reviews are more positive than the later review. But maybe finally a good summer movie. When I first heard about this movie what sold me was Christopher Nolan as the director - that is good enough for me

http://beta.rottentomatoes.com/m/inception/
a stunning achievement and the most completely entertaining film I've seen in years.

Inception is a masterpiece. Making a huge film with big ambitions, Christopher Nolan never missteps and manages to create a movie that, at times, feels like a miracle. Inception is nothing short of a stunning, spectacular, visionary achievement.

Inception is an exhilarating cinematic experience that suggests there is still room, even in the blockbuster world, for big ideas and dangerous emotions, and that may be the single most thrilling thing about it.

A devilishly complicated, fiendishly enjoyable sci-fi voyage across a dreamscape that is thoroughly compelling.

If movies are shared dreams, then Christopher Nolan is surely one of Hollywood's most inventive dreamers, given the evidence of his commandingly clever Inception.

A wildly entertaining and dazzling mind-trip not to be missed. Kubrick would have been proud.

I expected a lot,but still walked out hypnotized. Here's a movie that's 3 steps ahead of you, on 4 different levels, at 5 blinding speeds. Best of 2010 thus far. (No Spoilers)

Last year I was knocking down doors and screaming from rooftops to get everyone to go out and see "The Hurt Locker".

This year, it's about a series of films based on a popular series of books. I STRONGLY recommend everyone see the original swedish films before the watered-down B.S. American studio versions come out.

I saw The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo about six months ago and I saw The Girl Who Played With Fire on Friday.

If you're a fan of the crime/mystery/thriller genre that would include The Pelican Brief, Silence of the Lambs, and Mystic River, well, you're in for a very big treat if you see these movies.

Plus, there's a whole lot of finesse, beauty and brutality lent this film just from its cultural (Swedish) perspective. I think adapting it to American themes and characters would literally rip the hearts out of these films.

This is what movies should be all about, if you ask me. One camera, a few characters and a smart, crisp writing/directing/acting team.

Checking back in on the reviews of Inception 44 postive and 6 negative. I always like to get a sense as to why some don't like a certain movie.

___
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/inception/?page=2&critic=columns&sortby=&name_order=&view=#contentReviews

Awesome design, effects and stunts, but where's the story?

It's obvious that Nolan either can't articulate or doesn't believe in a distinction between living feelings and dreams -- and his barren Inception doesn't capture much of either.

It is not that I don't understand (well, pretty much, anyway) or appreciate the intense ambition of Christopher Nolan's trip into the world of dreams. But why did a movie designed to blow your mind, leave mine, while originally tickled, ultimately unmoved

I wanted to surrender to this dream; I didn’t want to be out in the cold, alone. But I truly have no idea what so many people are raving about

None of this prattling drivel adds up to one iota of cogent or convincing logic. You never know who anyone is, what their goals are, who they work for or what they're doing.

Like Grand Theft Auto's quasi-cinematic extension of noir and action-flick plots, Inception manipulates the digital audience’s delectation for relentless subterfuge.
___________________________

I always wonder if a film that is being shown on IMAX screens is actually shot in IMAX (like Dark Knight partially was) Inception is not.

http://www.ambienceofmedia.com/2009/10/03/christopher-nolans-inception-will-hit-imax/

For those who care about seeing movies digitally upconverted to the bigger format of IMAX and paying more for the privilege, good news! Inception will be released in the format next summer. Now, while The Dark Knight was actually shot partially in IMAX, Inception will essentially just be blown up and won’t have any scenes in the higher resolution.

Saw Inception at an advanced screening last night. If there's one film you'll watch at the cinema this year, please let it be this one. Not flawless, but its exactly the type of film we should be encouraging Hollywood to make more of. Original, multi-layered (definitely needs to be seen more than once, at least imo), and a visual knock-out (Wally Pfister is a god).

Saw some movies for the second or more times the past couple of days

"Sideways". One of my favorite road/atmosphere movies. Still really, really like this movie. Must have seen it about 4 times now.

"The Machinist". I like this one a lot too, especially the grey and dark feeling of it. This movie shows why I really like Christian Bale as an actor. His dedication to lose weight for this movie is astonishing. 3rd time I saw it.

"The Proposal". First time I saw it. I liked Bullock early in her career with Speed I and a couple of other movies, but she also played in a lot of crap movies. Anyways, it's predictable, but it's also a nice movie. I enjoyed it.

"Oorlogswinter". Dutch warmovie about a teenager wanting to be part of the Dutch resistance at the end of WWII. By accident stumbles upon a British fighterpilot whose plane crashed days earlier and helps him to try and survive, but his family takes a hard beating during the story, due to a large part of it. Originally a book written for early teenagers, pretty well filmed and acted. First time I saw it.

Like a lot of you I'm really looking forward to "Inception" aswell. Seeing as UncleBuck and I have a comparable taste in movies I'm more then sure to stay away from "The Last Airbender" now, especially with the heat this movie is taking by the critics.

The WC2010 final. Second time... :console:

Zodiac.

I know a lot of people aren't very big fans of David Fincher, but that ain't me. If he made the movie, it's going to at least be good, and might even be great. This movie had a very difficult task to accomplish. It needed to build terror and suspense while remaining true to the actual events of the Zodiac killings. I think it passed with flying colors.

I wouldn't know how to give a spoiler review of it. Somebody else may be able to, but I find it as something very difficult to describe to someone who hasn't seen it.

I would recommend not reading reviews, just go see it. It's a movie that has to be experienced. Whether you "buy what they're selling" or not, it's a technical masterpiece. And by technical, I don't mean special effects (though they are good), I mean storytelling.

I don't know if it's Nolan's best movie, but it's his best made. All of his films have dealt with perception, this one is just the most overt about it. If you've enjoyed any of his work, you'll find stuff to like here.

There are certainly criticisms to be made, but I'd rather not to the uninitiated. It's something best experienced clean. You may not love it, but I find a hard time believing anyone would regret seeing it. At least anyone who's the least bit open to the experience.

A couple of good small films:

Primer (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390384/)

It's a very non-traditional flick about time-travel. Very low budget, but pretty well done. If you like nice, neat endings, don't watch it. If you like sitting around and talking about what happened with a friend (which I did), it's a good one.


Salton Sea (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0235737/)

Lots of people you'd recognize - some you'd know (Val Kilmer, Vincent D'Onofrio), some you'll just think of as that guy/woman from that other show, or where have I seen him before?

Good story, but what I liked most about it was the humor. It's a drama, but it's nicely cut with some moments that really give a satisfying chuckle.

the plot was horrid. the "enemy" was never really clear at all in the movie as it was going from one group to the next without a real connection. Travolta just looks weird the whole movie with that style of his...

The Losers
the trailers made me expect something much more...sad to say i was rather disappointed with the "fun quality" of this movie...

The Blindside

An enjoyable movie. Funny, touching, and fun to watch with my baby.

Final Desitnation 3

Umm Dumb. I'd get into how unrealiasitc the way people died was, but why waste more time with this.

Chris Nolan's first film. Only 70 minutes long, but it's well told and interesting. Black and white and you have to pay attention though.

I'm pretty excited to see it. I just ordered it off amazon. Nolan's an interesting, clever director.

I just started to watch what I think may be the most horrible movie put to film: Meet the Hollowheads. (http://www.badmovieplanet.com/unknownmovies/reviews/rev440.html)

I pride myself on watching a movie all the way through once I start it, but I could get through this pointless, weird with no point, movie. It was on Starz or Cinemax or something, late night a few nights ago. I was suprised they even showed it. Anyone else seen this? :shiver:

"The Road" with Viggo Mortensen. I liked it. Pretty gloomy and dark movie about a father and son trying to survive and on a journey in a post apocalyptic world. Pretty depressing scenes and background, but enough moving moments to make it worth your time IMO. Don't expect a lot of action.

I thought it was well acted and worth watching for sure.

The Book of Eli

Okay for what it was, but I was expecting a lot more from the experience...

I thought that movie was devastating. Once it got you, it just didn't let up till it pounded you into submission. I felt beat up like when I watched Schindler's List, but without the hopefulness. Great, great movie.

Was it as good as the book? I just finished the book.

its similar to the book but they definitely toned it down in the movie a bit though...definitely worth a watch

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Watched this on HBO at the hotel before we left this morning. It was a chick flick, but still amusing. Michael Douglous was funny as the ghost uncle.

Love concert dvds.

Kiss - Symphony

What in the world makes these editors for concert dvds think it is a good idea to switch camera angles every couple of a seconds? DVD sounds great, but thought I was going to have seizures from the quick cuts constantly.

I've actually seen it multiple times, and I think it gets even better with subsequent viewings.

Inception

I really enjoyed it, and didn't feel lost at all, despite my friends telling me to "follow it closely."

Saw Scott Pilgram vs the World last night

Oh what could have been. It has some of the funniest lines in a movie I've seen in quite awhile, very funny. The situations were also funny. But what almost ruined it were all the fight scenes and special effects. I would love to watch it again when it comes out on DVD and I could and would fast forward through the fight scenes, then it would be an outstanding movie.

I am really looking forward to this movie, fight scenes and special effects included.
