Yeah, but at what speed?
I saw this yesterday. It didn't "suck" but I wasn't too fond of the ending. Didn't think the ending went with the theme of the movie... BUTTTTTTTTT I knew who the bad guy was after the first 5 minutes of the movie...LOL
Movies like that drive me nuts. They give you enough information that Helen Keller could figure out who the bad guy is within 5 minutes, yet the whole time play at being coy. On the other hand, if you figure it out in the first 5 minutes and then it turns out YOUR WRONG, that's a hell of a movie!
Saw the Next 3 Days with Russell Crowe, and it was really good. Well done, suspenseful, and not over the top ridiculous.

Also re-watched Edge of Darkness. Its more of a heavilly cliched film noire, than a modern day crime story. Had I known that going in the first time, I would have been less disappointed. Its not that bad, just too over the top to take seriously.
Agreed. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started watching it, but after I got over the shock of some of the sillyness, I enjoyed it.
It's not always easy for me to let go of what's silly and absurd and what isn't, but on those occassions I can....
I can get through a whole shift without screaming! :smug:
I watched Taken with Liam Neeson again the other day. That is such a great movie. Even though I have seen it about 5-6 times it is still great from start to finish.
Taken is a fantastic movie... I've definitely watched it as frequently as you have!
I watched The Expendables the other day... Great action flick if you're looking for something funny as well... Certainly a LOT of unbelievable stuff, but still entertaining!
Overall, I found this movie to be so absurd and farfetched that I couldn't help but love it. I let go of what reality is and just lost myself in the suspense and really enjoyed it. ESPECIALLY the scenes with the Albanians!
I have Expendables at the top of my Netflix Queue,
Expendables was pretty good. Obviously you have to suspend belief but it was defintely entertaining.
Watched Inception the other day and it was great. Highly recommended.
Also just watched Knight and Day with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz and I thought it was really good. Kind of goofy somtimes but defintely entertaining.
I hadn't seen "Knight and Day" until recently myself. Very good movie. Sure, I can't see any of that being plausible, but hell, it was very fun to watch.
Tom Cruise in his personal life may be OUT THERE, but on screen, I think he's terrific.
Just watched "The Other Guys" for the first time. I enjoyed it enough that in the 15 or so hours we still have it (on demand) I may even watch it again. Funny as all hell. I picked up on a few gaffs, but who really cares when it's got you laughing.
Well, I do, but I got over it.
Ya i thought it was funny as hell too. One of the first will ferral movies ive enjoyed since anchor man.
My wife's favorite exchange (and it IS a classic) is the one between Wahlberg and Ferrell where Wahlberg is saying he wishes he was a lion and would do whatever it took to eat him.
And Ferrell turned it right around on him. HILARIOUS!
The gf asked me to take her to see Sucker Punch last night. I can say it is easilly the best horrible movie I have ever seen. Ridiculous, bad cgi effects, horrible acting and plot. However it was packed with GORGEOUS women, and plenty of guns. It was terrible movie, but I enjoyed watching every minute of it.
Hubby and I rented Red a few weeks ago. Pretty entertaining flick, very funny. With Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, and John Malkovich, how could you go wrong?
Watched "Black Death" recently. Very dark yet interesting movie. It seems to be a co-English, German and Italian movie set during the dark ages when the plague is ravaging England...with the exception of one small village. A small group of soldiers and a young monk with a secret head there to find out what's up. Very good movie. If you're sqeamish, don't watch. Fair amount of blood but not over done.
Speaking of blood, I recorded "Slap Shot" on HDMovie Net and watched it AGAIN the other day. One of the BEST comedy sports movies ever.
I watched Salt with Angelina Jolie the other day. Very good movie. One of those super spy movies where you have to suspend belief for a couple of hours but it was a very good action movie.
You know, I don't doubt "Salt" is pretty good, probably VERY good, but man, just how many "so and so was framed and now the goverment is after so and so and so and so has to prove his/her innocence before the goverment kills him/her" movies can they make. At some point there must be entire scenes reshot word for word.
and that's just the GOOD movies. Think of all the lousy B and C movies using the same theme.
Wow, I just gave myself a headache.
"You! Higher mammal, can you read?"
DreamWorks Developing 'Madagascar' Penguins Spinoff Movie (Exclusive) - The Hollywood Reporter
No title yet or a release date, but I'll go ahead and start the reviews...
"Two flippers up!" I can't wait.
Movies I've seen in the last couple of months..
RED - Loved it
Salt - ehhhhhhh even with the suspension of reality, it was an OK action flick.
Next 3 Days - Good movie. Not what I expected but it was really good.
Inception - the special effects were really good but was a lil hard to follow in the beginning. I would say it is comperable to the way they made the show "Boom Town".
Every character in the Madagascar movies made me laugh, but THOSE DAMN PENGUINS were the break out stars, no question. I'm looking forward to this movie, so long as it's done WELL, not slapped together just for a buck.
The cartoon on TV is Ok. I've watched it with the kids a couple of times, but my taste in cartoons has changed over the years.
....but admittedly, I still get a kick out of SpongeBob.
Anybody ever see The Road? good movie but it should come with a Rx to Prozac or a .38 with one round.:tounge_smile:
You should read "The Road," great book but what a bummer. Too bad Cormac McCarthy couldnt write a world wide apocolypse a bit more fun, like Mad Max did.
Source Code was pretty good. Not into the sci-fi thing, but it was well done. Not unlike Deja Vu with Denzel from a few years back.
