Sorry for creating a new one ... but the old one is so far off the page, I can't bother looking for it.

I saw "True Grit" last night. I loved every minute of it. It was fantastic. Jeff Bridges is not John Wayne, but then again he is a far better actor than John Wayne was, who pretty much played every character as John Wayne. Bridges transformed himself into Rooster Cogburn, a drunk, disheveled, and completely believable character.

Yeah, it was good.

It was interesting to see Rooster with some of The Dude mixed in.

I saw Tron: Legacy in an IMAX 3d last weekend. Maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of the movie was actually in 3d which sucked.

The movie as a whole pretty much blew as well.

I personally wouldn't have been happy if I bought the Blu-Ray. It would be a really good Netflix rental though.

I must be immune to Tron fever because this is the second iteration that does not interest me at all.

I don't like science fiction much and I like Frisbees even less.

The $8/month Netflix is the best thing ever. Use it on the Wii, Xbox 360, iPhone, laptop... was great to be able to retreat to the guest room at my in-laws and catch a good movie over their WiFi.

Agreed on the Netflix streaming. I have been working a ton of late nights. Coming in at 8pm leaving around 2am. I actually finished The Dead Zone ( series used to be on USA a while back, Law and Order CI Season 1-8, and SVU the first 2 or 3 seasons. I just put it on my 2nd monitor and go to work. I wish Netflix had the UNit available for streaming.

I got "The Pacific' on bluray for Christmas, and I am really looking forward to watching it. The only problem is that our bluray player is in the living room, and it seems like I can never get time away from kids in there. I am assuming that's not the best show for kids....

Speaking of nerd movies, I watched Fanboys on cable last night. All in all it wasn't a bad flick. I thought the situational Star Wars parallels (like the trash room) were pretty funny.

I got that one as well.

It might be best for a late night viewing.

I watched The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus the other night, and really liked it. I'm fairly certain if I were tripping on acid or any sort of hallucinogen, it would only get better.

I am on double digit viewing of TS3, and the first digit could possibly be a 2. I have lost count. Then throw in viewings of both TS and TS2, I have about had ENOUGH of Woody and Buzz.

It is rare that a remake betters an original, but True Grit has done just that. I love the manner in which they speak, the acting was superbly executed and the soundtrack was incredibly adapted to each scene.

Is it safe to assume that you have kids that watch it constantly? When my kids were small the biggest fascination waas with Disney's Beauty and the Beast. We had to cut them down to 1 Beast watching/day.

Couldn't agree more. I enjoyed the heck out of that movie, and I am trying to convince my wife to go so I can see it again.

Oh my God... my daughter was a Beauty and the Beast beast when she was small. I have no idea how many times we watched it back when I was just dating my wife, and the girl was 3-4 years old. She would sing all the songs. I could, too, and I would often find myself humming them while working out during that time. My son could care less now, but every once in a while he asks to see it, and then it really brings back the memories.... I love having kids, especially for the ability to watch kid movies without guilt, and buy them the toys I want.

Saw Boondock Saints 2 last night on Netflix (PS3). It was pretty good, but it definately follows the pattern of sequels not being as good as the firsts. Best way to describe it is that some scenes almost seemed to be spoofs of itself (or spoofs of the original), but they throw in enough decent stuff to keep watching.

I watched "Restrepo" on DVD last night. If you haven't heard of it, it's a documentary that follows one platoon through their 15-month deployment in Afghanistan around 2007, I think. It was produced by National Geographic, and directed by author Sebastian Junger (Blackhawk Down, The Perfect Storm). It's really an excellent documentary - it just shows what it was like for these guys. There is no narration, no overt message, but after I watched it, all I could think of was that the whole Afghanistan conflict is just futile. Every step forward seems to unavoidably create at least one step backward.

Anyone else see this yet?

From Wikipedia article on Junger:

QUOTE
Restrepo

In 2009 Junger made his first film, the documentary feature Restrepo, as director with photographer Tim Hetherington. The two worked together in Afghanistan on assignment for Vanity Fair. Junger and Hetherington spent a year with one platoon in the Korengal Valley, which is billed as the deadliest valley in Afghanistan. They recorded video to document their experience, and this footage went on to form the basis for Restrepo. The title refers to the outpost where Junger was embedded, which was named after a combat medic, Pfc. Juan Restrepo, killed in action. As Junger explained, "Itís a completely apolitical film. We wanted to give viewers the experience of being in combat with soldiers, and so our cameras never leave their side. There are no interviews with generals; there is no moral or political analysis. It is a purely experiential film."[23] Restrepo, which premiered on the opening night of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival,[24] won the grand jury prize for a domestic documentary. The actor David Hyde Pierce presented the award in Park City, Utah.[25] Junger self-financed the film.[26]

War

The visits from June 2007 to June 2008 to eastern Afghanistan to the Korengal Valley with Tim Hetherington resulted not only in their reports and pictures published in Vanity Fair in 2008 and the film Restrepo (2010), but also in Junger's best-selling book War (2010),[27] which rewrites and expands upon his Vanity Fair dispatches.[28][29]

I went to China over Christmas and on the 12 hour flight each way, I managed to pack in a lot of movies. Stay away from Charlie St. Cloud at all costs, not that most of you would probably see it, but it's one of the worst movies of the year. I would say it was worse than the Last Airbender, but at least it was shorter so the Last Turdbender clinches my vote for worst movie of the year. Eat Pray Love was meh, it was a chick flick that took forever to get to the point (as usual), The Town was Ok, Wall Street wasn't that great, The American wasn't nearly as bad as the critics said, it was semi enjoyable and there were a few really amazing scenes, Ghost Writer was pretty good, typical Roman Polanski movie, and The Expendables was retarded. The best movies I saw this year were probably The Social Network and Scott Pilgrim vs the World which was pleasantly nerdy, yet entertaining.

For those of you with Netflix, "The Rage in Placid Lake" is a great Aussie comedy. Some of the scenes with his parents and at his work are priceless.

Is that the Mila Kunis one? If so, I might have to go just for the girl on girl.

Sorry, I like Portman and everything but this movie sucked. I can't stand it when the director/writer/author isn't honest with his audience. You never knew if what was happening was real or not, so i just got to where i didn't care because none of it was real.

0.5 of 5 stars

If you want to see an excellent movie see Get Low. great cast, plot, acting and soundtrack. No special effects, murder or sex. Just a great movie.

I watched The Fighter and The Social Network over the weekend. Both were good movies. I watched the Social Network twice.


Social network is a great movie, but I think it's overhyped. I dont see why it's worth of all the Oscar buzz other than the fact that it was the best of a limited number of good movies this year. I think movies in the last few years have been lacking overall, without too many movies that really knocked my socks off and won best picture like they did back before the late 90's.

we red boxed RED this weekend. I missed the very beginning, but it made me laugh. the sight of helen mireen (sp?) holding any sort of weapon is funny. definitely a comedy rather than action flick, but there is action in it.

^^^ I watched Red while running at the gym last weekend and I too thought it was a pretty decent movie.

watched toy story 3 this weekend...while it had some funny parts, it was probably the saddest movie I've seen in a long time.

The Void - A trippy movie with a crappy opening but the rest is better. Don't watch it if you have epilepsy. Gratuitous nudity, far from child-friendly, but an interesting concept for a movie.

do you mean sad as "emotionally sad" or sad as in you thought it sucked? I thought it was pretty good. I liked all the TS movies.
