So last night, the girl wanted to go see a movie. She picked A Solitary Man starring Michael Douglas, playing at the West-Newton theatre. As we are in line for our tickets, we see a flyer about another movie playing there called Harry Brown starring Michael Caine. The flyer said "This movie contains strong, brutal violence. Refunds will not be given, and no tickets may be exchanged" We looked at eachother and said "lets see it!"
Its basically the British version of Death Wish, with Michael Caine as Charles Bronson. The story has been done before, but the movie did not dissapoint and Michael Caine is awesome. He's no superhero, just a pretty frail elderly man. Former Royal Marine who fought in Northern Ireland and recent widower, he finally decides he's had enough of the gangs plaguing his housing project. Here are a few of the better scenes:

Don't know where else its playing, but its definitely worth watching!

If you can stand the accents in those British movies, Layer Cake is a great watch!

The first minute of the trailer is good, the rest looks like 28 Days Later with the old-school slow lumbering zombies. Some good gun stuff though, definitely worth a look.

Saw The Town today. Its fantastic, by far the best "Boston" movie yet. After all the stupid crap Ben Affleck has been in, he's one hell of a director and has a great sense of authenticity. Borrows a lot from HEAT, but I would put them in the same league. Definitely a must see. There is one scene that will make your blood run cold.

Saturday was movie night. I wanted to see the Town...again...but decided to let the girl pick. We ended up seeing Let Me In. Have to say it wasn't bad at all. Went in not knowing what to expect. Very creepy movie, started off like a serial killer but ended up as kind of a vampire movie. Im not much of a sci-fi fantasy fan, but it was done well and very dark. Also had one of the most chilling/hilarious scenes and probably the best car accident Ive ever seen on film. Worth a look, my only gripe was when a detective was searching a house with a 1911 and had the hammer down (I groaned audibly and got elbowed for it.)
Next week its my choice, I suggested topless beer pong at Foxy Dolls....hasn't been vetoed yet :teeth_smile:

Got RED on DVD, the Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren DVD...pretty entertaining. Lighthearted but some great shooting/action sequences. Worth a watch, they take the gun stuff seriously.

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.

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.

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.

Mechanic was a bag of shit, defines the term "Plot holes" things happen and scenes jump with no explanation whatsoever. State of Grace was great, awesome shootout in the bar.

just takes a while to figure out if things are happening in sequential order or not...
I made the mistake of watching Memento from halfway through the first time. Seen it a few times since, still cant make heads or tails of it. Sometimes it works, like Pulp Fiction, other times....doesn't.

To bring up an older movie mentioned by Delta before, check out Star Chamber with Michael Douglas and Hal Holbrook, about a group of judges who are fed up with the "inequities" of the legal system and seek outside measures.

DRIVE is a must watch. Very evocative of early Michael Mann. Dark and well done.

COURAGEOUS Movie Trailer - YouTubeC
Courageous. Haven't seen it yet, but it looks good (if not a little too wholesome, not a bad thing)
As of today, only playing in Boston, Lawrence, and Danvers...might go check it out on my day off.

Saw it in NYC last weekend. It was really well done. The acting and story were superb. The gun stuff was lacking, but the action was pretty good. Cooper did a terrific job, and the ending hurt to watch. Definitely a must watch.
