Watched The Blind Side on in room PPV last night. The woman's night to choose.

I have to say, it was a MUCH more enjoyable movie than I thought going in. The acting was good ( though I am not sure about Academy Award worthy ) and the story was great. I really liked the tie in with the real world person that the story is based on.

I would say it was a solid 8/10 on watching and keeping the woman in your life happy at the same time. There is some good dialogue and some good football scenes with epic hits to keep your attention.

Rewatchability is not great, but for one time through, it was a pretty good movie.

Just watched a Japanese movie called Immoral Affairs. Maybe the ex should have watched it, her life might have turned out differently....

Sort of a comedy, but not really. A woman decides her life is too boring so she drifts into affairs, ends up wanting a divorce then finds out she's in the same spot she was in before the affairs, but hubby has a new, younger wife.... Life does imitate art!!!!.

6/10 for comedy, 10/10 for irony and a drooling 100/10 for naked Japanese woman.....

Watched Jennifer's Body on DVD the other night, some parts more than once (LOVED the bit with her burning her tongue). It wasn't bad, but it wasn't really a skin flick or a true horror show; it reminded me a good bit of the horror flicks of the '80's, a bit of skin & sin with a moral to the story.

Whosoever invented the cheerleader skirt should be considered for cannonization, IMO.

To think that crazy broad turned down a role as a Bond Girl to do that movie instead. Talk about screwed up priorities.

Full Metal Jacket- 8/10 (a real good movie)
Forrest Gump- 10/10 (an all time classic)
Enemy at the Gates- 7/10 (really good but gets points off for historical inaccuracy)
Blow- 7/10 (gets points off for being depressing, but very good)
Shooter- 9/10 (a superb movie)

I just watched those within this month.
I want to watch The Hurt Locker (I have been told that the movie is good but is so inaccurate it is not even funny), The Last Samurai and Flags of Our Fathers. I haven't seen any of them yet.
I like good dramas. lol

I do think it may have been geared towards a younger viewer than me. The girl doesn't seem like the brightest bulb on the tree by any stretch, IMO.


Oh, Tango, I agree on Hitchhiker's Guide, LOVED it. Usually, i do have a towel in my trunk.

I enjoyed The Hurt Locker, but you have to realize that this movie isn't about being "a soldier". This movie could have been the same story about firemen, or smoke jumpers, or anyone else with an adrenaline induced job.

The fact that the main character is an EOD technician is the basis for the adrenaline, but it isn't the whole story. It's about how a guy has everything back in the world ( home, family, etc ), but he can't cope, he needs the rush of being on the edge, being in the mix.

I thought it was an excellent movie, but you are correct, it is not a great "soldier' story.

The Last Samurai is an excellent movie. One of Cruise's ( and he is a lunatic ) best bodies of work honestly. The swordplay is really well done.

I want to see this one mainly because I listened to a long interview with the actual woman Bullock plays. I was on the road a couple of years ago when I listened to the interview. A couple of times (I don't know why) but my allergies acted up a bit listening to that woman.

I think it's the cleaning products they use in the house or something, because I had the same condition happen to me at a couple of points.

Didn't seem to bother me during the football scenes, but a couple of those house scenes brought them right up to the surface.

I watched "Seven Pounds" with Will Smith last night (Netflicks online). Kind of confusing, but not too hard to figure out what will happen. Incredibly sad and depressing. I think some of those cleaning products must have leached into the couch.
