Alien Abduction:Incident In Lake County(1998)
A found footage/documentary style film about a family terrorized by aliens on Thanksgiving. Definitely not bad and was probably FAR more effective before the age of the found footage films. Hard for people to suspend their disbelief and just go with these types of films because they are overdone now days. I'll bet I've seen 50 or more "found footage" movies to date. Some are really good and some are downright horrible.
Was wondering if anyone else was going to see it. Jennifer definitely still got it.
Terrible rating on RT but we all know that doesn't always mean too much.
EDIT: Just checked it again and it's up to 40%. Not quite as bad as I thought. A respectable 6.8 rating on IMDB. Can't wait to see it. I heard Jennifer used a body double for some certain a** shot in the movie?

The story/history was cool, and I happen to really like the Foo Fighters, so Dave Grohl et al being in the thick of it was really cool.
Looks like little to no Thanos in Avengers 2:
Makes the early-credits scene at the end of the first one feel like a mistake / cocktease to me. I suppose they could be planning on him for the third one, though. Especially if that movie serves to wrap up all the Marvel films of this generation. I don't know that it will, but I'm just speculating.
Could Thanos factor in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie? Or they are saving for Avengers 3 as you said. Are they planning anything with Silver Surfer?
Do not buy Aftershock! Terrible movie!
I don't know how to hide spoilers, so I'll put it in white font below. If you want to see the spoiler just highlight like there's font below. Since there is you'll see it.
Everyone of the main characters dies horribly.
Thanos has been confirmed for Guardians, so yeah he'll be in there in some capacity
Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
My Amityville Horror(2013)
All new documentary about the Amityville case featuring one of the kids that lived it.....Daniel Lutz. Interesting stuff if you are a fan of this case and I'm really surprised most of the critics like it. Would have liked to see some testimony from Daniel's brother or sister as well because I'm not sure how much we can believe this guy. I don't think he is all there and has real anger issues. If it really did happen any of us would be messed up but just saying. Living in a house where the previous family was murdered would be bad enough without any paranormal or demonic activity.
Finally saw The Wolverine. Probably my second or third favorite X-Men film so far (behind X2 and on par with First Class, and much better than Origins). B+.
Can't wait for DOFP.
"I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right."
Anybody see Heat yet? I heard it is one of the funniest comedies of the year.
It is a funny movie. A few more emotional scenes than I'd prefer but what do you expect.
I like We're the Millers better.
Pacific Rim - I didn't fall asleep while I was watching it, but it's very difficult for me to come up with anything positive to say having left the theater. The parts that aren't extended video game intro sequences are so unintentionally bad that an obnoxiously grating Charlie Day was the high point of the movie personality-wise. I seriously don't get the "geek/nerd love" for it. I don't begrudge anyone for enjoying it, for sure, but how one can find anything meaningful or interesting in this movie is beyond me. I don't how how the same dude made Pan's Labyrinth.
I went to watch "we are the Millers" yesterday and as I expected the movie was pretty bad, too predictable, not that funny, yep I wasted two hours of my life.

I finally caught The Dark Knight Rises Part 2. Along with Part 1, it's the best Batman movie of the past 5 years.
The Dark Knight Rises Part 2?
Whoops, I meant Returns. My bad.
