If I wanted to watch the Hangover Part 1, I would have just watched it, instead of spending $40 for two tickets, a drink, and a popcorn.
The scene with the stripper was pretty good though. It was unexpected and original. The rest of the movie was just a retread.
no strings attached
Just go with it
Limitless was probably my favorite but all were good in there own way
will probably get to True Grit and Unknown by Friday i am really looking forward to watching them. Unknown sounds interesting and Jeff Bridges is in True Grit so it has to be great.
I loved Limitless as well. Saw it in theaters like six weeks ago, or whenever it was new. Bradley Cooper is probably my favorite actor to emerge from the last 5 or 6 years or so. I really enjoyed this movie.
Hangover 2 was a giant turd; felt ripped off about the jokes. I didn't care that the plot was exactly the same, but to rehash every funny joke from the first one was just extremely lazy. Most of the actors appeared to be coasting through the movie too.
Just Go With It was much better than the reviews made it seem.
Fast Five was awesome too... I haven't seen any of the other movies but I am a huge fan of The Rock. He really stole just about every scene he was in. "You I know I like my dessert first... now gimme the damn veggies!"
Also just watched Raiders of the Lost Ark yesterday. I think that might be my pick as the best movie ever made. I love it.
I'm getting very pumped for the new X-Men movie. I think it's an awesome new take for the film franchise. Very, very cool.
Hangover Part III is being talked about already. Good God, Hollywood ruins everything.
They have to bleed it dry.
unknown it is like Salt in a lot of ways and is a pretty good movie.

I watched the Hangover II and thought it was pretty funny, and also had a good crowd there which makes it better than it probably will be when I watch it on dvd.
Watched Pirates, but all I can think of now is: (language warning) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI6CfKcMhjY
"It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

The Last Exorcism. To me this is a movie best watched if you don't know anything about it, like one of my other favorite movies, From Dusk Til Dawn. A great rebound movie after Scot Pilgrim, and one of the best I've seen on DVD this year.
Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay

Okay, here we go. Caught the 12:05 AM showing of X-men: First Class at my local theater. Thrilled to pay the matinee price in the wee hours of the morning, and extra glad to pay it since the movie was excellent. Not "Dark Knight" excellent, but IMO, it is the best of all of the X-men movies.
One word of advice: Unless you like watching a long stream of names, don't bother staying until the end of the credits. Unlike other Marvel movies, there isn't any payoff afterward.
Also, if any of you spot Stan Lee in the film, let me know where he was. I don't recall seeing him in this one (he usually appears in Marvel movies).
Somewhat the opposite of Thor for me. I went into Thor with very low expectations and was pleasantly surprised, and I went into this with very high expectations and just left a little disappointed. With these kinds of movies, especially when they're set in a universe I've previously loved, I find myself being very very picky, and various things just struck me wrong. Its weird, but I almost wish I could have been the director of this movie.
With that said, there's still a lot that I liked, and I would give it a B or B+.
Watching Cheech and Chong's Next Movie right now.
The adjustment bureau very good Matt Damon is a solid actor
Cedar Rapids - Aside from the holy-****-I've-never-cringed-this-much-before Wire references from Whitlock (Sheeeeeeeeeeet!), best comedy of the year so far. (Caveat: haven't seen Bridesmaids yet) Not laugh out loud funny kind of comedy, but smiling, giggling and nodding in approval kind of comedy. Ed Helms is solid as is a surprising Anne Heche. John Reilly steals the show; dude is a golden god. Liked this a lot more than Youth in Revolt. A couple of side characters were wasted and there was a little too much predictability, so it's not perfect. Captured the simple themes of small towns and personal vacations quite well. Highly recommended.
Limitless - Much better direction than writing. Cooper is solid. An entertaining watch that could have been more interesting. I look forward to director Neill Burger's next flick, having also enjoyed the flawed The Illusionist.
Hall Pass - Farrelly Brothers need to stop. Seriously. They're complete hacks at this point.
I saw First Class friday night. I was disappointed, I thought it was good, but for all the people that are saying it even approaches Dark Knight, I'd like to know what they are smoking. To me, it lagged well behind Dark Knight as well as the first Iron Man, and I'm not sure it matched the second X-Men film either to be honest. It was just OK, I'd say. I couldn't really get involved with any of the characters except Xavier. Even Magneto felt somewhat hollow to me.
Saw X-Man. I will say it was very well done, story structure I thought was very good, special effects were excellent, it felt like an expensive movie and I mean that in a good way. So while I thought the movie was very well done, I didn't love it, didn't really like it. I liked it, it was entertaining, but it wasn['t anything more than that.
Seemed to me just when I th0ought, OK, now it is going to get good, it just didn't
Watched Red Dawn and Total Recall on Sunday. Nothing like a day of just relaxing watching old action movies from the late 80s and early 90s. I was dying laughing at Total Recall because there is a scene on the escalators where the bad guys are chasing Arnold's character and the bad guy steps on a dead bodies chest and it actually makes a noise like a toy. It sound like a dog toy that squeaks.
The Wrestler Mickey Rourke is a beast actor
Watched Jackass 3 last night.
