We caught a few over the holidays:

The Kingdom, really enjoyed it, I think the last 2 lines summed up the who middle east issue.

Super Bad, first & last 30 minutes were watchable, but that’s about it.

American Pie, Beta House, Very Corny, they need to put a fork in the American Pie series, there kind of killing what was originally 2 good movies.

Bourne Ultimatum, I was a big fan of the other two, but this one didn’t click well with me, maybe I need to watch it again, I couldn’t seem to catch on to whatever his purpose was in the beginning. I guess he was still pissed of that he was a CIA Assassin.

Im a big fan of the Bourne series and this one hit me with all cylinders. It was genious how they tied the timeline of this movie in between Identity and Supremacy. Amazing movie IMHO.

Additionally it just confirmed that Matt Damon is this generations Pacino.

I watched the 2006 version of the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" last night. I'm still not sure why. Pretty guesome and pretty fudged up.

I watched a video gaming horror movie the other night called "Stay Alive". Definitely campy and pretty stupid. I guess that's what I buying on cable.

I stumbled on You, Me and Dupree on HBO a while back. I never had any desire to see it prior to that day but it turned out to be a little bit of a gem. I had several LOLs.

I saw Charlie Wilson's War on Friday. I thought it was great! Very interesting how it played to our current situation in the Middle East...

Ditto.

Am I the only one who thought National Treasure 2 offered nothing new over the first?

^^Nope. I agree. It was even more far-fetched, but I still enjoyed it. Jsut not as much as the first one. This time, I left the theater thinking WTF! and feeling even more like I had just been conned.

I saw 300 last night. That movie rocks! I know there were some posts about it - I'll have to go back and read them to see what everyone else thought.

There is a lot of nice eye candy in that movie.

Watched Chuck and Larry last night,

my neighbor bought it on DVD, and I borrowed it, so no rental fee.

Was worth what I paid to see it. I did have a few laughs in there though

I saw 2 DVDs this week that were worth watching, if you missed them in the theaters:

3:10 To Yuma: Great western!

Stardust: Yes, even I fell prey to this one. Romantic and funny, and some pretty clever stuff.

How bout Red Scorpion? (the Dolph Lundgrin movie)

THat's one of maybe only 2 movies I ever walked out of. In a very odd coincidence, the Director of Red Scorpion was living in Saipan for a while in '90s and was friends with some of my friends (I guess he didn't make it very far as a Director!). I told one of my friends about walking out of Red Scorpion, and he went and told the director guy, who reportedly got all defensive and upset about it!

I never got to meet him.

My hubby wants to see this one I don't know anything about it, is it a super bloody war movie where the blood spurts out of wounds?

Not at all...it's about the politics and strategery behind waging a covert war.

CLOVERFIELD -

Anyone seen it? I saw it last night. I think all the hype (from both friends & the media) kind of spoiled it for me. But it was still kind of cool.

I saw Sunshine last night on DVD, pretty good science fiction. I love the setup - how the mission is sooo important, that completing the mission is the overlying rationale behind every decision that must be made. A good movie for engineers - lots of troubleshooting and technical decisionmaking. Probably not a very good movie for astrophysicists, though. Re-starting the sun with a nuclear bomb? Just ignore that and it's pretty good.

I want to see that, but will the hand held camera work make me puke?

The bourne movie was barely tolerable for that.

Then you would probably hate Cloverfield, at least on the big screen. My wife got angry during the movie and wanted to leave, but I didn't want to go so she stuck it out.

I was hoping someone else had seen it so I could bounce my deep political symbolism theory off of someone.

I've got Sunshine on DVD but haven't watched it yet. Glad to hear it's not a waste.

I enjoyed Cloverfield and hear they are working on a Cloverfield 2 already. I thought the shaky cam (and crooked cam) was overdone, but I guess they were trying for a Blair Witch effect. In some review I read that the creature was from outer space, but nowhere in the movie was that ever said. I was pretty surprised to see that Marmaduke from the TV show Carpoolers was a main character.

And of course there is Rambo. Way over the top, but a good guy flick. Don't see this one if you don't like seeing detached body parts flying through the air.
