I went and saw The Losers this weekend. I hope some other people go, or else there won't be a part II and I have no idea how the story ends....

The guys have some kick ass weapons in this flick. A lot of what I believe to be LaRue Tactical AR's running about.

Cougar, the team sniper, has a silenced Larue AR-10 that he kills just about everything that moves with. He has a great character and for once the sniper doesn't die in the first 13 minutes of a film.

Francisco will appreciate the guy with the knife fetish. Definitely some cool blades.

The gal from Avatar is in it. Eh. I could take or leave her. She doesn't do anything for me.

The humor is witty, a couple of times I was the only one laughing out loud.

All in all, for a mindless film to kill an hour and a half on a rainy day, I would give it a solid 6 to 6.5/10.

The plot has just enough meat to move along, but you definitely won't miss anything if you have to use the restroom. The action scenes are pretty good. They blow a lot of things up, sometimes with very little reason.

It's worth seeing from the comfort of your couch, but don't go to the theater unless you REALLY like going to the movies and are out of choices.

$25mil production budget, but only $18mil thus far in ticket sales. Doesn't look good for Part II.

"The Blind Side." Predictable and formulaic. But Sandra is still hot. Can't believe she won the Oscar, though.

I saw The Hurt Locker over the weekend. I regret not seeing it in theaters. Awesome film.

Grand Boys were over recently and I had to watch Avatar. Good CG, but some of the worst acting and badly over done story line I watched for years.

It's definately lib baised. To me, it's no more than a bad cartoon with good CG.

I've been curious about "Boondock Saints", so I rented it today and watched it tonight. I really enjoyed it and thought Willem Dafoe played a great part, if a bit over the top. It's not a great dramatic movie by any stretch, but it's a good action flick and cleverly done.

My wife quit less than half way through. I guess it's a guy movie.

Word for word my opinion and experience, Don! And Willem DaFoe is excellent in anything he does!

I had never seen it until I met my woman. She had it in her collection and it's one of her favorite films. She loves the Irish-Southy thing. She loves The Departed as well. Born in NY though, so she hates the Red Sox... LOL

I loved both of the Saints movies. I felt that the second one actually added to the mystique of the first one, because some of the story line in II makes parts of Part I a little clearer for me.

I watched "I Hope they serve Beer in Hell" again last night. That movie has some of the wittiest dialogue of any movie that is not a Kevin Smith movie. Just awesome back and forth put downs and friends blasting each other with zingers. Plus the storyline is just plain ridiculously epic.

Any movie that can work midget strippers, Halo gaming, donkey punches, sex with a deaf girl and a "pancakewich" into the storyline has two things going for it. 1) Definitely not for the kids 2) Funny, funny, funny....

Finally saw Sherlock Holmes and was pleasantly surprised. I didn't realize it was a Guy Ritchie film until the end credits. I like his other movies more, but it still had the same style of snappy dialogue and quirks.

Still have yet to see Revolver, which I heard was a bit of a turn for him.
