Personally, I enjoy the Departed more. RD just doesn't do it for me. Probably didn't help that I was disturbed by the torture scene, and that was the strongest emotion I felt the entire time, by far.
Wow 35 reviews and all positive. I saw the trailer to the Wrestler last week and it looks good. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_wrestler/
Wall-E- I swear the cutest movie ever
Went in with low expectations and it did not disappoint. What a load of absolute garbage. It was very predictable and just nothing new. Total waste of my time.
I managed to get through the 1st hour of Transiberian before I shut it off. Maybe the last hour is spectacular but the 1st hour completely sucked - and by the time they got back on the train I wanted all the main characters to be dead.

Actually yes the secon half of the movie was better than the first. Neither half of the movie was great or even good. However it was not the worst film I have ever seen either.
If you didn't see the second half I don't want to spoil it for you in case you watch it again. But it was nice to see that not everything was as cut and dried as you might think it would have been.
Did finish the 2nd half - was better than the start though still not good. I had it pegged except for 1 thing.
Just watched Feast of Love - not sure how I missed it when it came out since I really like Morgan Freeman. Wasn't bad - there were a few times I thought the dialogue was a bit forced and the Director could have gotten something better. Good stories though and they did a nice job developing the characters. Lot of sex - maybe more than they needed though I didn't complain. The nekked people were pretty photogenic.

Charlie Wilson's War - 8/10
PSH owned it. Even though I'd heard it in the previews, the "You're no James Bond" follow up of "Well, you're no Thomas Jefferson...so let's call it even" was oh-so-perfection.
I really liked that one too Jay.
Wasnt sure what this movie was about going into it but they laid out too much about what happens too soon. I had the movie figure out in the first 30 minutes and the rest was just was I was expecting one scene after the next. It was good for a watch but much too predictable.
The Day The Earth Stood Still 2008
Not bad. I remember the first one being better than this. Just didnt really add anything new to the original except some effects that were cool. Not really worth it.

What can I say.
I didn't really know what this movie was going to be about when I started it. Turns out it is about the making of a fictitious play called, oddly enough, Hamlet 2. It is a controversy around the town and the struggle to get it made. I enjoyed this movie about as much as I expected. Not blown away by it but I did find myself laughing, crying, screaming, laughing again, then anger, then more laughter, some confusion, more laughter and finally satisfaction, followed by laughter.
I could see the main story line from early on and a portion of the ending as well. Movie are too predictable these days and it is starting to bother me.
It was amussing.
Sunshine - 2/10
Never, ever, ever, ever, ever under any circumstances watch this movie. Wow. It's soooo good for an hour and then becomes maybe the worst movie I've ever seen. That's not even an exaggeration. Danny Boyle just shat all over the bed on this historic disaster. I was legitimately angry for the final half-hour.
Yeah it was well done, I have just been seeing a lot of predictable movies lately and it bothered me.
The Dark Knight sucked. I totally saw it coming that the Joker would fail.
