I don't watch enough movies.

I still need to get around to watching Quantum of Solace, and I really enjoy Bond films.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons

no.gif no.gif

My wife and I stayed up till like 2am Saturday morning watching this DVD and it was the most boring movie I've ever seen.........My wife actually fell asleep at one point in the movie.

has anybody seen The Night at the Museum II?? My kids want to go see it this weekend.

I really liked the first one but I'm worried about this one because of all the hype.............

Terminator Salvation...

no.gif no.gif

If I wasn't with friends, I would've walked out of the theater half way through. Just a bunch of explosions left and right. Absolutely horrendous...can't wait for Transformers to come out though cool.gif

Terminator Salvation thumbsup.gif

Great action movie, much better than number 3 in my opinion. The storyline seems to flow well if you've seen the original Terminator(which I had to re-read the plot to the original on wikipedia as I was extremely confused). But anyone who is into action should go see it

The G.I Joe toy doesn't look stupid anymore. UP looks funnier than NATM2. And I was a fan of LOTL:TOS. I was watching a lot of the episodes yesterday on Sci-Fi (14-hour marathon).

Terminator Salvation:
thumbdown.gif

Better than T3 overall, but very flawed. Most of the action scenes were well done and the machines looked cool on the big screen. The final 1/3 of the movie focuses on a different character who is less interesting than the main characters in the previous 2/3. And for something that is supposedly so smart, Skynet takes the most round-about way to stop John Conner. The ending was also very lame.

This article is an interesting read on the original plot of the movie:

I was also disappointed by Benjamin Button (though not by the lack of male nudity tongue.gif ). It neither connected with me emotionally nor did it really delve into the implications of aging backward.

Yeah, I agree with your buddy. Watch X-men 1 or 2 if you need a Wolverine fix.

4 Reviews here: (I saw all of these in theatres except for the last one)

X-Men Origins: Wolverine. thumbsup.gif

I saw it and enjoyed it. It was a typical super hero movie. If you like super hero movies, watch it, if you don't, then don't watch it. It was like the Hulk, Spiderman, etc. It had a lot of action and kept me interested throughout the whole movie. The only complaint I have is that Cyclops, my favorite of the X-Men, looked really stupid. He was a high school kid with pink glasses.

Observe & Report. thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif

This is probably the funniest comedy I've seen in 2 years. I was laughing out loud almost the entire movie. It is hilarious. It's about a security guard at a mall (Seth Rogen) trying to catch this guy running through the parking lot flashing everybody. It's rated R, so yes it does have a lot of swearing and crude humor and is not a "family movie". It is nothing like Paul Blart: Mall Cop, it is MUCH MUCH funnier. I definetely recommend you watch this.

The Haunting in Connecticut. thumbdown.gif

I came into this movie thinking it was going to be rediculously scary...and...it wasn't (I will go back to this shortly). I wouldn't give it a thumbs up, but it wasn't really a thumbs down either, I only gave it that rating because on cbware88's scale a thumbs down is considered OK and a movie worth renting. But like I said, it wasn't THAT scary of a movie. It did have a lot of those parts where a loud, short piano plays when a ghost walks by a mirror and stuff like that. It was just a good ghost story that apparently happened to a kid in 1987. You can look up the storyline for this movie somewhere else, it's hard for me to explain it to you without giving it away.

My Bloody Valentine thumbdown.gif thumbdown.gif

I gave this movie 2 thumpsdowns because there was no inbetween on the scale from "OK" to "worse movie ever don't waste your money." This movie is about a miner that kills people with a pick axe in a mine. It really isn't all that great, and there's much better horror movies out there. I personally thought The Haunting in Connecticut was a lot better than this.

sorry for the long read, hopefully you enjoyed.

Thanks Cardinal!!!!!!!!

Those were some good reviews.

I saw Mall Cop at the drive-in with the kids so that is why I passed on Observe and Report. Based on your review, I might have to reconsider.

Night at the Museum II thumbsup.gif
it was a good movie. defiantly a family movie.

The drive-in is showing Up and Hannah Montana this weekend and my kids want to go..............I don't mind watching UP (It looks pretty funny) but I don't know about the other one.

Hey; do you guys remember back when MTV had the celebrity showdowns?? I think one version was a clay cartoon one and one version was a live one. How about we have a Hannah Montana/Britney Spears cage match!!!!!!! laugh.gif

CELEBRITY DEATHMATCH. That was one of the funniest shows I've ever seen.

P.S. We should change the rating system for the reviews to a scale out of 10.

UP

thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif

This is why I love movies. It balances adventure, humor, and emotion perfectly. Both the story and the animation are great. I particularly thought the animators did a great job in capturing the mannerisms of a real dog. The first 10 minutes do a better job at exploring life and love than the entire running time of a certain Oscar-nominated picture from last year. Seeing it in 3D isn't essential, but worth it; it adds depth to the picture but is not so distracting that it takes you out of the story. Great movie for all ages and the best movie I've seen so far this year.

One of the most consistently funny movies I've seen in a long time. I was laughing so hard that I probably missed some of the jokes. I can't go into much detail because it wouldn't be TCC-appropriate, but this is a hilarious movie.

If your expecting a Dirty Harry type movie, you will be disappointed. It's more along the lines of Tuesdays with Morrie or his other movie..................Unforgiven (which was actually better than this one)
