Sideways. Made me laugh. Made me thirsty. Good enough.Spanglish. Meh. Too much back and forth from the main characters. Would like to stick my weiner somewhere around the vicinity of Tea Leoni, however.

Saw 3 this weekend:


The Jacket - Pretty decent. Definitely kept me entertained, plus Keira Knightley. What's not to like? :thumbup:


Napolean Dynomite - I know, I know. It's AWESOME, EVERYONE LOVES IT. I think I saw it too late - too much hype. It was funny in parts. I didn't think, however, it was the LAUGH OUT LOUD RIOT people proclaim. :yawn:


The Hostage - Pretty entertaining, mindless, Bruce Willis action movie. Definitely worth a $4 rental. :thumbup:

Doing stuff is overrated. Like Hitler. He did a lot. But don't we all wish he would have just stayed at home and gotten stoned?

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ. The materialism of affluent Christian countries appears to contradict the claims of Jesus Christ that says it's not possible to worship both Mammon and God at the same time.

Hitch ... didn't really care for it. Not so bad that I would actually label it "bad", just didn't think it was as funny as I thought it would be given Will Smith and Kevin James.

It started out okay and had a good vibe going and then just fell apart at the end when it became a monster movie. I had high hopes for it, but the ending just took a lot from the experience.

I bought Cursed this weekend. Not a bad flick, Ricci actually looked sort of good in this flick. It seemed to take alot from American Werewolf in London, but money well spent.

agreed. mildly entertaining, but it didnt need to be 2 hours long.

I'm about halfway through it. Not the worst movie ever, but not worth spending any rental $ on either. Many better horror flicks out there.

I just saw Hitch with the wife, and was shocked at how cheesy I thought it was. It got rave reviews from a lot of people we know, but we thought it was lame and predictable.

Honestly it started out ok, nothing new but I liked the setting and back story. The rest of it was just awful. The scares were cheap and the effects were just terrible.

I watched Cursed this weekend, and I didn't even think it was worth renting! When the girl was CGI transforming into the wolf at the end of the movie, I was laughing and thinking that 20 years later and AWIL still had a better wolf transformation.

"Hitch" - Meh... Smith was good for the part, but the guy that played Albert (Kevin James?) made that movie watchable. AND of course Eva looked hot as hell :thumbup:

Ocean's 12 - boring.

Boogeyman - Not worth renting, but it was better than Cursed :P

Hostage - a fun entertaining movie. Nothing more, nothing less.

about to watch "The Jacket" right now.

Admittedly the end wasn't that good, but I thought it was kinda creepy and had some great camera work.

I thought The Machinist was great. :thumbup:
and I liked The Life Aquatic, but I'm sure it's a love it/hate it type movie

If you want to rent a horror movie, try "Devour" instead of "Cursed" or "Boogeyman". It's a low budget movie, but you'll recognize some of the actors and it's entertaining and definitely a lot better than the 2 aformentioned movies."The Machinist" is worth renting, just b/c Christian Bale's performance was outstanding.

Saw three this weekend, first two were rentals. Hitch -- mildly amusing but disappointing. Ridiculous plot conflict that could have been resolved by the characters simply talking to each other, combined with stuff happening that does not in real life (movie star falls for nebbish), saved only by some comic takes by Will Smith. Yes, Eva was nice to look at. Thought "How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days" was much better constructed. The Jacket -- liked it a lot. Nice suspense and the scary parts are the psychological kind, which are much more effective than gore fests. Wasn't such a fan of Brody in "The Piano" but he was good in this. Keira Knightley and Jennifer Jason Leigh were v. good too. Batman Begins -- really liked this one. I think it was the best at least since the first. Highly recommended. Liam Neeson gets to play the oracle role better than in Star Wars I; Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Rutger Hauer give it a lot more gravity than the earlier Batman movies. After seeing American Psycho I was guessing Christian Bale would not disappoint in this role and he was up to it. Am curious whether War of the Worlds can stand up to this challenge for top entertaining movie of the summer.

I agree. It probably wouldn't have been as good without an actor so committed to the role. Amazing and shocking performance by Bale.
It was filmed in Barcelona btw, not Los Angeles.

Team America World Police - Outrageous, as expected. Pretty funny.

Super Troopers, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle - I was pleasanty surprised by both of those. Funny as ####.

The Village - GB low expectations. Not as horrible as I expected.

Saw - Above average horror flick.

Troy, Oceans Twelve - :sleep:

Post NFL 2008 draft quotes via Chachi:

absolutely brilliant with Malcolm Kelly as the #1 WR, I agree 100%

I actually think Forte is going to be a major bust, not only Benson stunk in Chicago, they all stunk in Chicago and I don't think Forte is very good at all

Even with Chris Johnson being drafted high, I agree with the low ranking, I think he brings something special (speed) but it's not going to equate into much fantasywise.

I would seriously be stunned if Forte/Johnson/Smith all finished ahead of Dmac, actually I'd be stunned if any of them finished ahead of Dmac

I am taking bets on ROY, I will take McFadden over anyone who wants to pick Forte, it just seems like stealing to me, I'll wager whatever you want.

It seems like I've been on a run of movies that were either disappointing, boring of just plain bad.The Machinist, In Good Company and Be Cool are sitting on the TV at the moment. I think the Machinist will probably be the best one. Be Cool wasn't that good. I felt like they made the movie so John & Uma could dance one more time on screen.Suspect Zero was ok.. Sideways and Closer were disappointing.Ocean's Twelve was abysmal.The Incredibles better than I could've imagined.

Phantom of the Opera - OK. If you liked the play, you'll like the movie. It's pretty much the same thing. Emmy Rossum is hot.Hitch - Decent. Some good laughs, but the big misunderstanding was stupid.Dr. Strangelove - Hi-freaking-larious. Hadn't ever seen it before.

:goodposting:

Cary Ewles was awful. His acting was completely over the top. The only time he doesn't look out of place in a movie when he's cast in a role where he can dance around in little tights while sporting a pencil thin mustache.

Napolean Dynomite: It was okay but not as good as I had been led to believe it would be.

Primer: :confused: This movie definitely would benefit from a directors cut where they include the material that allows this movie to make sense.


Edit to add a few comments on other films mentioned:

Saw: Good idea, poor execution. Whoever decided to cast The Dread Pirate Roberts in this film should be banished to the Fireswamp.

The Jacket: Surprisingly good. Not great, but well worth a viewing.

Spanglish - It had a "feel good" story. I liked it, but thought it ended awfully fast. It took awhile for the story to develop. My favorite dialogue scene from the movie was...

"Don't go there Mom, because I will go there and you know where there is.
Jerry Seinfeld on socks: The dryer is their only chance to escape and they all know it. They plan it in the hamper the night before. "Tomorrow, the dryer. I'm going."

This and the original are two greatly underrated movies IMO.

Saw Ocean's Twelve last week. Couldnt bring myself to turn it off, as I kept expecting it to improve...it did not. :thumbdown: Watched In Good Company this past weekend. Was alright. Funny in spots. Unfortunately, a tad predictable. Something like 22.5 stars out of 4 for me.

The Machinist took a rather normal concept and made it very interesting. I would recommend it to those who like darker movies (Seven, Fight Club)

By the looks of things, I probably won't get a straight answer out of any of you cause you all have to maintain your humorous shtick's and your attempts of out-doing one another for jokes.
