    I know what a chick flick is not, it is not a gross out comedy (although was Bridesmaids a chick flick?) it is not an action movie, it is not a super hero movie, it is not a blood and gore horror movie or any kind of violent movie. But what about a drama like Lincoln - probably not.

    Is s chick flick a romantic comedy? is it a tear-jerker? Silver Linings was a romantic comedy, but also a serious drama - that to me would qualify it as a chick flick. Although the major difference is perhaps it is really well done. So I tend to think a movie that is a romantic comedy and or a serious drama that isn't any good ia a chick flick but a well done movie in the same genre is not.

    A chick flick is derogatory, I do know that.

    A chick flick is whatever my girlfriend likes and I don't like

    Bridemaids, Dirty Dancing, The Notebook, Safe Heaven(), Sex and the City(), Chick Flicks are movies that you always know how they are going to end, is always some stupid love history, some Chick flicks are well done (Pretty Woman) but others are just the same crap as the other ones.

    Watch the Chronicle Yesterday. Interesting Movie. I don't understand why they kill off the black kid though, just stupid writing. Would have been better to have them both trying to fight the demented cousin in the end.

    Reminded me of Akira in the end, especially with him in the hospital and the one cousin yelling "ANDREWWW!!!!" ......."TETSUOOOOO!!!!" alll through out the final stand off.

    You've got to rent it sometime. My top ten all time movie list changes time to time but Wizard of Oz always makes it in there for me personally.

    Eh, I would categorize Bridesmaids as an indie dramedy with a Melissa McCarthy performance. SLP was a romantic comedy but relatively character driven and pretty subversive.

    I think the main thing that makes a chick flick a chick flick is that the love story drives the plot, making it seem inevitable and thus trite and predictable. RomComs aren't necessarily chick flicks, of course, see 500 Days of Summer or Annie Hall. There's really either love drama (like Love Story, or more recently, the Nicholas Sparks ones) or love comedy (from City Lights to Some Like It Hot to Harry Met Sally, etc.).

    It's called a chick flick because movie executives have pretty much only heard of four or five segments of the population, and the movies you're thinking of are for the 30 and 40-year-old women who only go to movies to cry. (Granted, that's not an insubstantial portion of moviegoers, and the ****** moniker is caused by both producers and consumers.) I think there are enought bad and uninteresting movies that are formulaic and cliched that you don't necessarily have to separate them by gender but that's pretty how marketing for studios has worked for a long time now.

    Wreck it Ralph. What a terrific, sweet movie. And as a fan of old video games, I loved all the throw ins and nods to the old games. And I loved the short as well, super cute.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    I don't really know what I expected, but don't waste time on GI Joe 2. The Rock, who I genuinely like even though he can't actually act, can't come close to making it passable.

    Forgive my pissyness here but that movie pissed me off. The cobra soldiers were actually wearing US NAVY working uniforms. And then at the end of the movie they have a marine officer wearing an Army uniform. My friends and I in theater were like "well, that was a spit in the face." we are now developing a movie call Sailor Robert.

    Breakdown(1997) Kurt Russell, Kathleen Ouinlan

    One of the most under-rated thrillers of all time. Excellent.

    I saw The Call as well. Pretty good movie although it was derivative of lots of movies. Still better than most box office stuff lately.

    GI Joe 2

    It was an all right movie for a brainless action movie. I just wanted it to be better than the first one and that was easily done. Just seeing Snake Eyes running around dual uzis made me happy. I was glad I only paid 6 dollars for it, but it was a nice way to kill a few hours.

    The movie used US Navy uniforms as the uniforms for the cobra members then put a marine officer in an army uniform. I felt like I was growing a tumor.

    Planning on going on a big movie theater trip (which equates to any trip to the theater for me) on April 26th. Any suggestion as to what to see?

    A chick flick IMHO has some romance, some comedy, bright women lead characters, and nothing blows up.

    Wait... You plan out a trip to a movie theater a month in advance without an idea of what to see?

    Trips to the movie theater are rare for me. It's for my birthday anyway.

    Dark Skies......I don't know......I enjoyed it. I'm a sucker for those alien conspiracy movies. Overall pretty good reviews on IMDB. Anybody else wondering if the new Evil Dead is any good?

    Don't know what you're into but 42, the Jackie Robinson biopic'll be playing then. That looks worth checking out.

    Evil Dead (2013)

    Pretty well done, I guess. I think I may be at the end, or at least the beginning of the end, of watching movies like these. I feel "over it". I'm not scared, I'm barely ever startled, of course it's gross, and at some point it becomes, "Why am I watching?" I basically was just enjoying the filmmakers' execution of the art rather than getting into the movie itself. I wasn't bored.
