    Saw Eclipse last night. The best of the three so far.... but that's not saying much.

    A solid 5/10, and only because there was a battle scene between wolves and """vampires"""

    Problem is they did that in Underworld and Van Helsing. The Twilight films do nothing original and make Vampire movies look like a bunch of whiny little girls.:(

    I watched We Were Soldiers. A great Vietnam movie that I enjoy very much.

    I watched "The Uninvited" last night, the American remake of the excellent Korean horror film/thriller "A Tale of Two Sisters". Not bad as far as remakes go, but like most remakes, rather pointless.

    Weird title choice (well for me anyway) since there's another good Korean horror film called "The Uninvited".

    What is film criticism but just another person's opinion? (Btw, I think 'Casablanca' is overrated as well.) What, to you, is the difference, and why would it matter?

    I haven't looked at all. But I have noticed the many awards, many favorable reviews, and heard many people speak of the movie favorably -- including the person I saw it with. What more would you like me to do?

    Now, you know my style-Asian guys:). Have you watched the movie "njinga assassination" (I am not sure the exact name of the movie). That main Korean actor is so cute:oops:.

    I'm still awaiting the sequel to the wonderful JFK biography "Reckless Youth", even though the writer said 10 or 15 years ago that he decided he wasn't actually going to write it after all. But there's always hope!

    I've been a member of blockbuster for sometime now taking advantage of the 3 movie at a time deal been watching a lot of movies/tv's lately. Here's some of my recommendations

    "Story of Anvil" was very inspiring/heartbreaking. If you like rock I might enjoy this one
    "Flammen and Citronen" was reality movie about WWII
    "Thirst" was about priest who becomes a vampire after blood transfusion goes wrong. Kinda quirky/funny but also some gruel scenes. Same director as "old boy" I highly recommend both movies if you're head is messed up
    "Seabiscuit" was surprisingly good. Probably because I love horses and underdog stories
    "Army of Darkness" good oneliners, sorta funny... Bruce Cambell gives good performance

    Hot Tub Machine = The Hangover in the 80's.

    Awesome movie! Not as great as The Hangover but great for laughs.

    Just as much physical comedy, but has a lot of play on words, funny dialogue and exchanges, cut scenes, and some female nudity.

    I thought it was the best of the three so far Tina. I was horrified when the viewing audience erupted in applause not once, but twice, but the story was entertaining. I'm invested now after seeing the first one...I want to see it play out.

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which is a very good film adapted from a very good novel.

    I just saw "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" again on DVD but I watched it with the English soundtrack so no subtitles. I read all the books after I saw the first film in the theatre. They changed the screenwriter and director for the 2nd and 3rd films. The reviews haven't been very good for the 2nd film although it's supposed to be more faithful to the book.

    Just finished Red Cliff and thought it was really good. Nice to watch a movie with a happy ending. Thought it was funny how John Woo somehow found a way to incorporate white doves, again, into his film.

    Invention of Lying - Loved it although some people hated it.

    Clash of the Titans 2010 - Slightly changed story from the original, but I liked it.

    Unthinkable - Good movie but disturbing to say the least.

    Date Night - Slow and kinda funny, but I love Tina Fey so I'm a bit biased

    Cop Out - Not funny at all.

    Brooklyn's Finest - Certainly not one of Fuqua's better movies but it's ok.

    Ip Man - Probably the best martial arts movie I have ever seen. Donnie Yen rocks

    Ip Man 2 - Good, but not as good as the original.

    Resident Evil, the first one
    -IMO a pretty funny film considering the fact that it has nothing to do with the game except the zombies, mansion and Umbrella, maybe the lab also

    Tears of the sun

    that movie was really funny!


    A couple of weeks ago I went to watch Toy Story 3. I was really excited, since I still remember when I watched the first one 14 years ago. Almost cried when Andy left Woody with the little kid:oops:

    Great action movie, I really enjoyed it. The duel between the Asian guy and the big predator was sick

    The Russian film Night Watch (Ночной дозор). There is also a Danish film titled Nightwatch (Nattevagten), which was pretty good, and an American remake of Nightwatch, which got bad reviews and I never watched.
