    Not yet....we're still in that transition from the summer blockbuster crap movies to the more serious winter season films.

    Saw "Frozen" last nite. Mildly entertaining, somewhat suspenseful. Overall thumbs down.

    Saw "Nowhere Boy". It was OK- was expecting more about music.

    Resident Evil Afterlife 3D.

    Didn't care much about it.
    And I am a resident evil fan.

    Nothing special...and didnt find it "LOL" funny except for one scene. The only good thing about that movie is Eva Mendes...

    Secretariat. I liked it even though we all know the ending. Diane Lane as Penny Chenery and John Malkovich as Lucien Laurin were excellent.

    I was bulldozed into a movie theater to watch the new Wall Street sequel this weekend. The movie was predictably mediocre and mildly entertaining, but the girlfriend/wife or whatever character was very unbelievable and frankly awful.

    I'm surprised. Carey Mulligan's is supposed to be terrific actress.

    So do you think I should spent my money and go see it in the theater or wait for it on television?

    I'm sure she would do a fine job playing a neurotic psychology major virgin at a mediocre rural school, but isn't so believable playing a woman of class sitting on a $100mil inheritance and wishing to donate it to charity. Don't go see it for the sake of seeing the movie. Let it come to you.

    Saw "Huevos de oro".
    For anybody expecting a 2010 release it's a 1993 movie with Javier Bardem, Benicio del Toro and a few others.
    Funny, interesting, not for kids :)...

    80's throwbacks

    Killer Klowns from Outer Space-Watched it with my 2YO nephew. His words, "I want to watch it again!"

    The Wraith-Hadn't seen it since I was nine, still a really fun movie with cheezy effects and I still want the Turbo Interceptor.

    I just finished watching Predators, it was alright. I've been watching AMC Fearfest, too bad they censor most of the kill scenes.

    quest01, you watch too many movies. Too many bad ones, more specifically. This dang thread is littered with your B and C action and horror films.

    Maybe it's time you move on to Bergman, Fellini, Goddard, and fare like that?

    Watched 'Invictus' and 'The Blind Side' over the weekend. They were okay, but I didn't see what all the fuss was about.

    I don't think a steady diet of junky movies is considered "unique" for a young male in America.

    Recently watched on Netflix Instant, "Proof of Life" with Russell Crowe and Meg Ryan. I liked the movie, the ending was kinda like "Casablanca"

    RED - nice, fun and easy...good after a long day @ work if you don't want to think much ...
    A few great actors...I'm a fan of Morgan Freeman, Malkovich...Hellen Mirren...so...many positives in the movie.

    Repo Men. The concept scared the carp out of me.

    See it, and if you watch on dvd, check out the "Union Commercials".

    You owe it to your family, you owe it to yourself.

    Granny

    Last night I watched a movie called "Granny" Its a slasher horror film thats pretty self explanatory its about an old woman who goes around killing people. Its a decent movie, not the best movie in the world but it has it's moments.

    I love the slogan "she'll love you to pieces!"

    "The Misfits".

    Made me more fully understand the appeal of Marilyn Monroe.

    I actually think I saw some or all of it years ago, but don't remember much. (I've also seen "Niagra, Niagra" for that matter!)

    There's this waterfall that's memorable until you actually visit it.

    I visited the waterfall a few years ago since i was in that general area on other business. I think it's worth seeing, and I found it more memorable than the movie "Niagra", though I don't remember seeing any Marilyn Monroe types hanging around.

    Cool, which one is your favorite episode? I like the one where Moz mistakenly volunteers to be eaten by the German. The 3 IT characters are funny, plus they added that long lost son of the owner that died. He's one funny dude...

    Maybe I should have looked closer. When I go back there for my honeymoon I will.
