    It wasn't horrible, but I no time did I care anything about what I was watching. If the person I was with at any point during the movie, said, "I'm bored, can we leave" I would have said sure why not.

    It wasn't that it was bad, just completely un-involving. No characters did I care about one way or the other. The bad guy was uninteresting. Bond was boring.

    Thinking back I remember very little about the movie.

    I guess it just isn't my type of movie. But can they put together a plot next time.

    Also watched Zodiac for the first time on DVD (did see it when it was in the theaters) I love this movie. Not sure why - it is kind of long, for the last 90 minutes there are no more killings - but I just sat mismerized watching it - even missed the start of the Pacers vs Heat game Saturday night because I wanted to see it all.
    Completely agree on the new Bond movie. I saw it tonight and it was like watching Knight Rider (the new one), it was one giant Ford commercial. If this werent a bond movie it may have been decent, but this was very lackluster. Only one good car chase scene, during action scenes the camera angle was changed way too quick and often, everything seemed to happen on accident, no plot, very unrealistic at points, where were the gadgets??? and there is more but you get the point.

    It was a huge letdown for me. I really liked Casino Royale and thought this would have been good, but it was just not Bond to me.

    I liked it. I enjoy action packed murder movies so this was perfect for me. I liked the car chases the foot chases the boat chases and most of all the murdering. There wasn't much of a plot but I dont care.

    It was a decent kids movie. Not the best movie ever made and not the worst either.

    I thought with the two new Bond films they were blatantly ripping off the Bourne style of action shots. I'm with UB. It just didn't feel like a Bond movie.

    OK...I agree on Leatherheads, but you can't be talking about the Henry Fonda "Battle of the Bulge". This movies holds a special place for me because I watched it as a small child with my father (who actually fought in the battle.) However, I watched it again a few years ago, and though the sentimental value was still there, it was a truly horrible movie.
    Agreed. Battle of the Bulge is really, really, really bad.

    I hope you've watched Band of Brothers. By far the best WWII thing in thing I've ever seen and all the Bastion stuff is particularly amazing. In fact, Band of Brothers is probably the best non-The Wire serial to ever appear on film.

    That's awesome.

    For what it's worth, I thought the new Bond was fan-fricking-tastic. The plot was pretty straight-forward to me and ran pretty consistently throughout (although I'm not sure how
    Spoiler Spoiler:
    ).

    I also agree on the slight overuse of the shaky-cam stuff, but it wasn't anywhere near the degree of Bourne or some other of recent years, and the chases (car? check. boat. check? prop plane? check.) were all stellar. The homage to the greatest Bond movie ever, Goldfinger, was also a nice touch.

    Really, there was nothing not to like. I preferred it to Casino Royale even, which I thought was really good.

    Additionally, all this should be prefaced by the fact that I mainly spent the entire movie staring at Olga Kurylenko. ******* that women is gorgeous. And the best part? I heard she thinks I'm cute.

    I have not seen "Band of Brothers". Not sure why, but it's one of those things that I never seem to want to watch when I have the chance. That's about the 101st, and my dad was in the 82nd. He made all four combat jumps (Sicily, Italy, Normandy (D-Day), and Nijnmage (Operation Marketgarden - A Bridge Too Far) and fought in all 7 major battle actions the division had.

    "The Longest Day" is a fantastic movie, and "A Bridge Too Far" is a mediocre movie, but a fantastic book. Cornelius Ryan is really good.

    Sounds like you need to watch "Band of Brothers". I put it off for a while thinking it would be different than it was (I was expecting your normal television mini-series/soap opera crap or maybe a notch above and be more of a low budget, watered down, tv movie feel). I was wrong. I'd go so far as to call it excellent. I did not look cheaply made at all. ...well acted... intriguing... well produced.

    I wish I'd watched it sooner (like when it first aired).

    I have no doubt that it was excellent. Several friends and members of my family have recommended it.

    My dad's been dead for almost 32 years now, but I think there may still be a little bit of a mental block for me on this. I'm sure I'll watch it, but I just haven't gotten there, yet.

    Band of Brothers is one of the best films ever made. It's not even a mini-series, it is incredible.

    I am watching Band of Brothers now. Picked it up on Blu Ray at Best Buy for $60. I read the book and really liked it and always wanted to see it and couldnt pass up that price.

    I'm jealous that you get to see Band of Brothers for the first time.

    It's unfathomably good.

    Watch the extras after you're done if you still have the attention span. The interviews with the real soldiers are phenomenal and its uncanny how much the cat from Brooklyn looks/sounds like his is the actor who played him plus 50 years.

    Oh i am definitely going to watch all the extras. I loved the book and am so glad i found it for that price. WWII is my favorite era of history too so it fits in perfectly.

    Twilight

    I have never read the book, but was..."coerced" into seeing the movie.

    It was...okay. The pacing was really weird, with too much time spent on the "love" scenes and the other stuff accelerating too fast. The movie was two hours long, but could have been trimmed by 20-30 minutes pretty easily without losing anything significant.

    Some of the dialogue was cheesy and cliche.

    The scenery was excellent for the most part, and a lot of the teenagers' acting was spot-on, even to an annoying fault.

    6.5/10

    Well, I also thought that and said so earlier in this thread, but we are apparently in a very small minority.

    I view TDK as an A(+ when I'm in a good mood) superhero movie, and Iron Man as a B+/A- when I'm in a good mood.

    Iron Man should be there too (I forgot about it). Thought it was a very good movie.

    I think, overall, Iron Man is the (very slightly) superior movie. TDK just has a few small plot-holes/inconsistencies that hinder it a tad.

    Speaking of TDK, really looking forward to the Blu-Ray release tomorrow.
