Re: Recently Watched Movies v3

Finally got around to seeing Star Wars: Clone Wars. I actually really enjoyed it. I know a lot of people didn't, but to each is own I guess.

Re: Recently Watched Movies v3

I watched Ice Age: The Meltdown the other day. It was good - not as good as the first one, but the animation was better here.

Hancock - Cheesy, short, 6 stars
Get Smart - Decent, Family fun 7 Stars
The Crappening - Mark Whalbergs worst performance, seen better acting in adult movies 1 star
The Love Guru - terrible, brief comedic moments, 3 Stars

Re: Recently Watched Movies v3

Saw a ton of movies lately:

Apocalypse Now
Three Coins in a Fountain
Somewhere Beyond the Sea
88 Minutes
1408 (or whatever that John Cusack movie was called)
Iron Man
Flawless
Airplane
Back to the Future

There might be more, but I've probably forgotten. I was just on a cruise for 12 days and there was time to kill.

My wife and I finally got around to seeing The Dark Knight.

The Joker was PERFECT. Very good movie. I wish they woulda saved Two Face for the sequel though. Two much going on at the end.

Watched The Goonies - classic comedy. Really holds up. The commentary is almsot better than the movie.

The Black Hole - underrated Diseny classic. Nice visuals. Creepy story.

Re: Recently Watched Movies v3

I saw Speed Racer and quite enjoyed it. If it had any flaws there were a couple parts that dragged in the middle and the length - 2h 15m, was a bit much for a family film. Hard to get kids to sit still that long no matter how in to the movie they are.
Also saw baby Mama over the weekend. Not bad but not anything original. Pohler and Fey are capable of so much more but it did have its moments.

Re: Recently Watched Movies v3

I just saw The Aviator, on youtube. Brilliant film and DiCaprio is amazing, as is Alan Alda and Cate Blanchett as Katherine Hepburn.

If it had been nay other year, he would have gotten that oscar.

Now I'm going to get the DVD and atch it with my Dad

I watched the Devils Rejects last night for the first time in awhile, I really appreciate it more this time around, and I watched the Rocky series again.

Re: Recently Watched Movies v3

I watched a bootleg Lakeview Terrace last night and I have to say it was better than I thought it would be. I watched it with extremely low expectations so I'm sure that helped. Mace Windu does it again...

Just saw "Can't Hardly Wait" with Jennifer Love Hewitt - I was surprised at the stars that were also in it, before they were stars

Re: Recently Watched Movies v3

I watched The Sand Pebbles - Steve McQueen, Richard Crenna, Richard Attenborough. Great movie. Steve plays an Engineer on board a gunboat in China during the war. He gets caught up in the politcal imbalance in the area. Great movie.

Re: Recently Watched Movies v3

Finally watched Baby Mama (since it has been sitting in its Netflix envelope for a couple weeks). It was alright. A few funny parts, mostly predictable. I liked Steve Martin's character.

Re: Recently Watched Movies v3

I watched Death Race finally. Great movie for a guy who just wants to see T&A, cars, explosions, and Jason Statham being a total [censored].

Nope. A new trailer is expected earliest in Nov or Dec from what I understand
