    Saw Polanski's Carnage yesterday night. Great 75 minutes movie, jus like a theatre piece actually. Really great if you're into different movies

    Midnight in Paris. Boy W.A. did smoke a green one on this one. Cool movie though, not sure if it is worthy to rent or own it or netflix it.

    Funny People.

    People ripped on it because they expected a Billy Madison/Happy Gilmore role from Adam Sandler. It's a great movie.

    I thought the exact same thing. Thought he was great in it.

    Recently saw The Hunger Games. Made the mistake of listening to too many opinions, so I walked in expecting an amazing film. Was disappointed. Thought the build up to the "game" was better than the game itself.

    Also saw 21 Jump Street. Loved it.

    oops, my friends are married. Their kids. I land up watching those animation flicks with their kids.

    Poor chaps, have to feel for them (the married ones) :)

    I saw the HUnger Games yesterday. IMO its pretty good but pretty bloody. The book is definitly A LOT better. Towards the end of the movie they go by events too fast. They changed things a little bit too, like in the beginning Katniss gets the mockingjay pin from the Hob but in the book she gets it from the Mayor's Daughter. Overall its a good movie but very dramatic (my sister was crying the whole movie :-?)

    That is the one. Thanks. I am bad at remembering movie names. And also which actor was in what. I guess I really don't take movies seriously - just like some instant gratification when I have some time to kill.

    Has anyone seen The Hunter, starring Willem Dafoe? It's supposed to be good but not playing within 200 miles of me. :(

    I rented it a month or two ago. It was pretty good actually, but if you're looking for an action-flick then you'd do well to look elsewhere. If you don't mind a movie where things aren't exploding every five minutes you might enjoy it.

    American Violet, story of 24 yr old woman trying to clear her name after being wrongfully accused of dealing drugs. Hard to believe this occurred in 2000. Never realized about 95 percent of all felony convictions in the United States are the result of plea bargains.

    I saw " Flying Swords of Dragon Gate" last night. It was highly entertaining. If you like martial art movie, this is for you. I love those special effect.

    i watched the birdcage on Tuesday night on AMC
    hilarious movie

    I'd give it a SOLID 6.7/10 (im usually harsh on movie ratings too)
    robin williams is one hell of an actor, and seeing hackman in that setting was quite funny

    I saw that movie years ago. It was absolutely good casting with Robin W, and Hackman in that setting. Great movie. I couldn't stop laughing for a while, especially that greek soup bowl scene.:)

    I saw " We bought a zoo" a few days ago. It was fun to watch, nothing special. Last scene was a little emotional.

    No worries.

    Watched through The Deer Hunter and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest with the girl as she hadn't seen them before (I know, I know...). Unfortunately she didn't enjoy The Deer Hunter but she redeemed herself by loving Cuckoo's Nest. :)

    How was it? I keep hearing people rave about it, but it just looks like a blatant copy of Battle Royale, except aimed towards a young, female audience.

    Didn't expect crap like this with Guy Pearce in the lead role. Pearce fills in for Sly Stallone here as the rogue cop bustin' chins somewhere in a future dystopia. The pits.

    Liked Limitless, but I thought the ending was kind of flat. I also thought there was a lot of unexplored potential and issues that the movie didn't cover.

    Yeah, sure so maybe he goes on to become president, but what does that mean? Does he really change the world? Does he make the world better? What happens if someone else starts making and taking the drug? What if everyone had access?

    Would almost like to see a Limitless 2. For all we know, he takes over the world and becomes an evil dictator.

    Currently watching all the Harry Potter films, one after the other. I'm enjoying it much more than I would have thought. Currently started Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

    Sort of random, but is anyone hyped for Prometheus? Can't wait for that to come out.
