I enjoyed the original quite a bit. Dudley Moore was a very funny guy. This new guy, Russel Brand is a bit much. Sort of like Robin Williams on crack. Funny now and then, but over all....eh, not impressed.

I think I hated it so much is because I am sick of all the remakes. Most movies being made these days are remakes. It sucks.
I'm sick of remakes as well, but as I've said countless times, I wish SOMEONE would do a remake of "The Choirboys". That movie NEEDS a remake.

Such a waste of a great cast.

Just watched Source code. It was really good, around 90 on rotten tomatoes. I had no plans to see it and actually trashed it before i saw the ratings. Then figured I'd give it a shot and I'm glad I did.

Nothing like a movie that takes you entirely by surprise. I recall seeing "Flash Dance" when it came out. I didn't want to, but my GF and her friend wanted to see it and I went along. I walked out of there thinking what a terrific movie it was, and no, NOT for the reasons you may be thinking! That stuff was rather disapointing. Oh look, she dumped water on herself, isn't that COOL and SEXY? No, it's just WET and BORING!

But I did enjoy that stupid movie. To this day, I can't figure it out.​

I'm a little late on the review, however, "Limitless" was awesome.

Great movie, kinda predictable, but still worth watching.

Limitless was pretty good, The Lincoln Lawyer was also decent. I rented The Mechanic but didnt really like it. I like Statham and the other guy they used but the movie just didnt do it for me. I liked the original much better before JMV went Gary Busey on us. Last night I pulled out State of Grace, Sean Penn, Ed Harris, Gary Oldman....real good Irish mob type of flick. I aslo watched Blade Runner, yup still love it.

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.

Brion The Mechanic wasnt one of his karate movies it was a remake of the old Mechanic with Jan Michael Vincent, that I loved mostly because of Bronson but JMV was good for a few years.

WATER FOR ELEPHANTS I believe is a good date movie. The setting, the depression, and the story are interesting and may at times move slowly but draws you into it quite well.
My movie woman was satisfied but then I'd suspect I always leave her that way.

I have heard grat things about that movie now I will definately see it. Plus the depression really interests me having been the time that the greatest generation grew up in.

I recently saw Hanna, Fast Five and Rango.

Fast Five was really good definitly the best of the franchise. They ate overhauling it and I like the new angle.

Hanna was great also, I didnt expect
much from it and was pleasantly surprised. I imagine if Jason Bourne ever ha a kid shed be like Hanna.

If you like animation and like westerns youll like Rango, reminded me of Fival Goes West, which is a classic for my generation.

I recommend all three,

Just finished watching 7 Pounds w/ Will Smith and Rosario Dawson. Pretty good, just takes a while to figure out if things are happening in sequential order or not...

I watched Black Swan the other day and it was very good. A little odd but good. And there was an especially good scene in there but I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it, but it does involve two women and not a lot of clothes.
