    I wasn't overly bothered about seeing but glad I did. I was quite impressed.

    Very good for what it is. Was quite surprised how it turned out. Had to be rated R to be worth anything, if it was PG-13 it would have been garbage.

    Very intense in some scenes...

    Okay; not as good as what you would expect from an IMDB rating of 8.2

    A little late this year, I think - but like I have any control over it? lol

    They actually started coming like a month ago, but was hoping for Lincoln. However, they sent these notices out for Special Screenings for industry members, but it looks like few showed up at these screenings. Kind of a waste. The invite came with this big, color booklet. Should have just sent the DVD the first time!

    So then last week, the DVD arrived, so....

    Just haven't watched anything, yet, as a girl I know wants to see them, too, and she lives a ways away, so they're just sitting there. I'm usually on-court at night, anyway, so I can wait.

    I do want to see Lincoln, though!

    Very entertaining; not just another Eastwood vehicle; His portrayal as a crusty old guy is quite good as is the relationship progression between his character and his daughter

    Triangle - One of the typical mind bender thanks to one of the imdb poster i got now most of it :D, how did it rate so low than similar kind of movie inception. I think its way better than inception

    Django Unchained... very entertaining but it felt like it lost focus a that Tarantino spark from the scene with Tarantino onwards that comes about 80% of the way through.

    It's a supreme effort but not as good as his previous film, Inglorious Basterds.

    Saw this film again on TV today, brilliant stuff, further proof that Charlie Kaufman is the most creative screenwriter of his generation.

    Rented "Would You Rather" last night. Low-budget Saw-type movie with minimal gore but lots of psychological scares... we liked it.

    We went to see "Mama" a couple weeks ago. Terrible. We were laughing for the whole last ten minutes as the plot went completely off the rails.

    "gangster squad" was ok.. stylish suits and big name actors, but no real plot, character development, intrigue or interesting themes. also, full of cliche including token (helper) roles each for a black man and a latino man....

    Side Effects

    Slow-starting thriller that builds to some surprising twists and turns....better than I expected.

    A Good Day To Die Hard.

    A complete shambles of a film with only a few cool helicopter scenes to prevent it from being as bad as Battlefield Earth.

    Probably the millionth person to check in with Django Unchained. I downloaded Skyfall though, just haven't gotten around to checking it out though. @Bobby Jr. I'm saddened to hear about the terrible new Die Hard flick.

    ^^ saw it, didn't think much of it initially but alot happens in the last 20 minutes or so, takes on a Hitchcock feel to it, would recommend it.

    I re-watched True Grit last night, and I like a lot. In fact, I like most of the movies by the Coen brothers.

    Ended up watching House On The End Of The Street last night. Expected it to be scary, but it was one of the weirdest & worst movies I've seen recently.

    Die Hard With a Clogged Artery, or whatever it's actually called.

    Oh... Em... Gee... I never imagined when I was sitting in the cinema watching Arnie's The Last Stand a few weeks ago, that it would end up being the best of this year's three Geriaction Hero movies. Nor did I imagine when I was watching Stallone's Bullet to the Head that it would be knocked into second place in the category of least interesting action movie of the month.

    Silver Lining Playbook. I see no need for massive cussing in that film, seem way too contrived. I really dont see people cussing that much in real life that way.

    C+ at best.

    I was forced to see Lincoln, and 2 other movies. I think one was Argo (looking back at some posts name seems familiar).... was that the movie about catching UBL/OBL ? And one more -- never caught the name .. but it did have -- can't recall his name -- but about rescuing some people from a Canadian Embassy in Iran -- darn i am totally confused, saw them 3 days in a row.

    Saw Benjamin Button last night. Nice theme music in the end. Reminded me of Forrest Gump.

    Les MiserĂ¡bles. While vocally not as strong as most Broadway runs of the musical, the visual impact was astonishing. It can be a tad too long (2h 37mins) but it doesn't get tedious at all.
    The best musical they did on film, so far. Miles better than Phantom of th Opera.
    Really enjoyed it. If you find yourself being a fan of musicals, it's a must-go film.

    Really agreed with your review. Only thing is, Dakota Fanning isn't on this film. You mean young Cosette? The little blonde girl? That's not Fanning.
    Fanning is 19 years old nowadays! :)
