    Excellent. Christain Bale was outstanding and I'm not a Bale fan. He physically changed himself in such a way that initially I didn't realize who it was, and it wasn't because he bulked up for the role.

    I did not realize the film was based on the life of Mickey Ward prior to watching it. Wahlberg directed and did a fabulous job. Highly recommend this film.
    Bale is a master at changing his body for roles.

    Ever seen the Machinist? He did that right before the first Batman movie. Try to imagine the work he would have to put in to change for that.

    Battle: Los Angeles - So much fun. Incredibly clichéd dialogue/story/characters. Like laugh-your-***-off, most-cliched-ever level script. If you can't laugh at an Army tank running over aliens while Michelle Rodriguez yells, "OMG, they're going down like bowling pins!" then I don't know if movies are for you. The action and effects are bad-*** enough (Pretty obvious carbon copy of District 9.) to keep you awake. Aaron Eckhart pretty much carries the movie if you're there to take it seriously. But, c'mon, it's hilariously dumb. Marines never quit, and neither should this screenwriter.

    Little Fockers - this was actually passed as a movie? De Niro...what are you doing with this flick?!

    The Warrior's Way
    - I really liked this one - had some great visuals.

    Source Code - pretty good, although I would guess some of the time shifting would frustrate some

    Rented the Fighter on blu-ray. Very good movie. Not at all what I was expecting, very little fighting in the movie, and that's ok with me. I'm sorry, but I know there are people that hate Christian Bale. He's definitely a very good actor. Not only can act, but changes his body for the role...seriously can't be healthy to keep doing that.

    Mark Whalburg was passable. He plays the same character in every movie just about, but he does it well.

    Damn, are the sisters fugly!

    Which is why I said on my post that that cannot be healthy to keep doing that. Just seems like that would do some damage to your body/organs to keep doing that.

    Yeah the Fighter is a good movie, it was nominated for several awards, I don't know why some of you are surprised it was good.

    Watched the Lookout again for about the third time, although it had been a few years. Still love that movie

    Movie suggestions for maybe those who haven't seen older movies:

    These movies are really popular, but many young folks have never heard of them. And these movies are truly great! Give them a chance!

    Zulu- one of the greatest war movies ever.
    The Man Who Would be King- Michael Cane and Sean Connery
    The French Connection- Gene Hackman
    The Sting- Paul Newman and Robert Redford.. This movie is 10 times better than their famous Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
    the original Jackal
    The Bridge over the River Kwai- This movie has Obi Won in it.

    Some other random movies you may not have seen:
    500 Days of Summer
    Bandits
    Equilibrium
    Way of the Gun

    and thats all I can think of right now.. having a brain fart.

    I like The Lookout as well. Big JGL fan.

    I want to see The Fighter but when it came out it looked Oscar-baity and not super good. I'm gun shy on Markie Mark after The Happening.

    It's worth watching multiple times just for Christian Bale's performance. Can't think of an actor whose next movie I'm more looking forward to than his. Maybe RDJ, but after Due Date...

    It's also a lot funnier (b/c of David O Russell's direction, though it can be argued that M Night's direction can be equally hilarious) than people have given it credit for, especially in its world building.

    I just recently watched a movie at work about Temple Grandin with Claire Danes in it. It is a pretty good movie and an excellent movie regarding Autism.

    Finally got to see 127 hours. Really liked it. I don't know what I would have done in a situation like that.

    In anticipation of catching Scream 4 on Friday, I decided to re-watch 1, 2, and 3 today.

    Can't say that I like these films nearly as much as I did as a teenager, but I'm still glad I'm back up to speed in time for the 4th, which I'm still up for seeing.

    Surprisingly, I found I enjoyed 2 the most. Used to think 1 > 2 > > > 3. Now, I wouldn't go so far as to say 2 > 1, but I did enjoy it more, so maybe I'd give it a very weak > 1.

    3 still blows compared to those two, but it's not awful.

    It's interesting how you pick up on more and more plot holes, even in very good films, the older/wiser you get.

    Watching the trailers for 4 and recalling a non-spoiler review I read after an early screening this year, I'm expecting 4 to be like 2, which has me still excited to check it out.

    watched it the other day - definitely agree with this review...it felt like a bad made for TV movie for me...

    Got the new version of "Clash of the Titans" as my first DVD from Netflix.

    Movie was horrible. They completely sold out on the story to make nonstop action. The original is much much better.

    Should be getting Machete by Friday. Really looking forward to that movie.

    Iron Maiden ...Rock in Rio concert dvd.

    Editing is so fast I thought I was going to vomit. Seriously, it did cause me to have a headache and not because Maiden is a heavy metal band. I would recommend sticking with just a cd.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    If you liked Planet Terror, you won't be sorry about Machete. Rented it first then bought it when our local Blockbuster went out of business. Nearly new copy for $3!!!

    Yeah, I saw Scream 4 on Friday.

    Decent. Definitely better than Scream 3, but I still like 1 and 2 better than this one.

    I'd rank them something like this:

    Scream / Scream 2
    .
    .
    Scream 4
    .
    .
    Scream 3

    I don't feel like getting into nitpick mode, and really I'd have to see 4 another time or two to do it justice anyway, but what bugged me were several little things with regards to some of the lines, line deliveries, and cinematography/direction that I believe, if done differently or removed in some cases with the dialog, it could have been significantly better. I also didn't care for the blonde deputy. She was annoying and felt out of place. Partly that's on the character, but I didn't like how the actress played her, either.

    We saw The King's Speech while attending my wife's honor ceremony at UTEP. It deserved the awards and acclaim. A very good movie.
