    Expendables 2. If you like thinks blowing up and full on action this one fits the bill...just like the last one lol. The acting buy some of the new characters were a little lame. Some funny parts to the movie as well. Chuck Norris actually used one of the many Chuck Norris jokes floating out on the interwebs lol.

    Great little movie. Joseph Gordon Levitt and Natalie Portman are in it. Highly recommended.

    saw two documentaries this week about the war in iraq/afghanistan:

    "Restrepo" and "Hell and Back Again"

    highly recommended if you're interested in those types of things. I know a lot of good war movies if you guys need any insight.

    Also here are a couple of underrated movies most of you may have not heard of:

    Blue Streak (with Dave Chapelle and Martin Lawrence- hilarious)
    The Recruit (with Al Pacino and Collin Farrell- thriller)

    Jessica Alba asks "Where the F have you been, you could've at least texted me" ..
    Danny Trejo replies "Machete don't text." lol

    2/10. Horrible, if you are a Jason Statham fan, better to watch Crank again rather than this crap...

    The one with the Joker was a classic, Loved it, the Bane character and his idiot voice was one big mess.

    I loved the first one, the second was disappointing. Bane was cool but I couldn't understand him and I didn't like the way he died.

    Entertaining, but predictable. The fact that it was based on a true story makes it interesting. Scarlet Johanssen (sp?) is always worth watching. It won't win any Oscars.

    Last movie I watched was The Bourne Legacy. It was OK, but it took too long to really get going. I must admit though, I'm pretty amped to see The Expendables 2, and Premium Rush might get me to the theaters too.

    premium rush- It was a 7 out of 10. And how does Jamie Chung look like a high school senior at 29 is beyond me.

    Sparkle, the re-make, kind of a drag. Characters are not fleshed-out.

    Hey this was a fine movie, German if i recall, won an Academy Award. Very worth it.

    I saw 'I, Robot' last night during dinner while waiting for the women's semi. I've lost count of how many times Will Smith has saved the world/humanity. He really should be The Greatest Human of All Time, knighted, canonized, sainted, deified etc, lol.

    Not the last one I watched, but For All Mankind is a fine documentary commemorating the Apollo missions of the 1960s and the '70s. And it's now available for free on Hulu (at least in the US, not sure about other countries):

    http://www.hulu.com/watch/165094

    Even as someone too young to have experienced it live I got chills watching some of the otherworldly footage. And yes, it features the famous words of the late Neil Armstrong in all their glory. And a fittingly ambient soundtrack by Brian Eno.

    "Robot and Frank" with Frank Langella (and the voice of Peter Sarsgaard for the robot). Light and fluffy, not very entertaining.

    Loved it. They ramped up the action no end!

    Was watching for key stuff from the original, was excited when I saw them.

    Overall, a nice movie.

    Thanks for the recommendation. Sounds really good. I will check that out.

    Agreed, action packed. They choreographed actual fight and chase scenes where the camera is far enough away, so you can actually see the action.

    I'm tired of most of today's action movies where the camera is really close, you can't see what is happening, you hear bone crushing sounds effects and see people flailing their hands, and you are supposed to assume some amazing action scene if happening, even though you can't see anything.
