My hard-and-fast rule: if you like Adaptation, you are a movie snob. That movie sucks with a capital SUCK.

Also, if you don't like Snakes on a Plane, you are a movie snob. Horrible, yes, but great all the same :lol:

I have no problems with movie snobs, beer snobs, wine snobs, etc. as long as they have no problem with me liking movies like Rumble in the Bronx or Shoot Em Up.

I have seen it and liked it very much. One of my favorite men, under appreciated Chris Cooper, along with a host of fabulous character actors are in this film. A mystery that doesn't dumb it down for the audience and full bore ACTORS, not stars. One of the few films w/ Matthew McConaughey where I"m impressed w/ him, he normally bores me to tears.

I saw Thor .. it was ok. The movie had its moments but seemed to end too abrubtly IMO. The cast and the story lines have potential.

When doing the comic book movie thing .. I always compare to the Batman "redo's", Iron Man, and the first Spiderman.

The one thing I don't understand is that the movie industry has done X men, Fantastic 4 and it is working on the Avengers but why hasn't it done Justice League (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Green Latern). IMO, it would be huge if done well!!!

Finally got around to watching The King's Speech, and I definitely enjoyed it. Colin Firth was spectacular. I also watched Blue Valentine, and I must say I was very impressed. I usually hate Ryan Gosling, but he plays a convincing alcoholic.

Based on the recommendation of many I went and saw "Bridesmaids" and it was just plain awful. There were a few funny moments, but it ended at that. It was especially rough at times when you could tell they were improvising and it just felt forced. It was like they had a plot point written and were just hoping to come up with some funny stuff to fill time. It might help if I found Kristen Wiig funny at all and through watching her on SNL, she is just completely unfunny to me. If you like her, then you will probably like this since she is in every scene.

I saw it this afternoon, agree w/ you, awful awful awful. Had some potential which they wasted completely and yes I think they were improvising too, not good. The one scene that had me laughing was in the bridal shop when they all got sick. "Don't look at me!" but that wasn't enough to recommend it, save your money for The Hangover 2.

Has anyone experienced the "D-box" deal they've got at the MOA? I heard about it, and thought going to see Pirates 4 with it my be cool. But I mainly wanna see it in 3D. I'm not sure they show it in 3D if it's D-box. I don't see why they wouldn't, but, it doesn't list it on the MOA's movie page.

So...just wondering has anyone experience it yet and would you recommend it or just kind-of a silly "fad" right now?

Pirates 4 is another one of those movies that was not actually filmed in 3-D but filmed in 2-D and later converted to 3-D.

Maybe it was because my expectations weren't super high but I liked Thor. Yeah, it won't win awards for best movie but it did enough to entertain me for a few hours. I enjoyed some of the one liners in it too.

Cliffy, you're wrong on this one. ;) Pirates 4 is the 1st of the series that was shot in 3D. But you didn't answer my question about D-box. :)

Went and saw Bridesmaids tonight. First: For a Tuesday night movie there were a lot of people there.
Second: It was decent I thought. Some pretty funny parts, mostly the scenes with Melissa McCarthy. She was an absolute riot. t was decent enough. I laughed pretty hard at some parts and was thoroughly un-entertained at others.

I'm normally not a fan of raunchy, over the top comedy, but The Hangover pulls it off. I felt the sequel failed to live up to the first but it is still an enjoyable flick.

Sherlock Holmes: at first I was afraid it might go the way of The Prestige (which is an awesome movie, but doesn't fit Holmes' style), but thankfully it didn't. I liked it better than I thought I would, although I could do without the MTV-editing in the action sequences that has become a substitute for actual action in many movies these days.

Due Date: Meh. A couple funny lines, a couple funny situations, but honestly, Zach Galifianakis is terribly overrated. It's a shame, because I can see his potential with the comedic style he brings, but it usually is just so unimaginative that it almost hurts. If you miss seeing this movie, don't feel bad about it one bit.

Truthfully, the only movie that I think that Zach Galifianakis was really funny in was Out Cold.

"Skyline" - so bad it's not even worthy of filler time and might have the worst ending of all time.

"I am number Four" - standard sci-fi/action fare but this one was actually worth the rental price.

I do agree the Hangover 2 wasnt as good as the first one but really where could the sequel go? They really could only do pretty much the same thing the did in the first one. This movie will make more than the first one did so the studio im sure is happy.

I always have lower expectations for sequels than I do the originals, unless it's part of a continuing serious story (Matrix, Star Wars, etc). Comedies have it even tougher, since they are usually "self-contained" movies. Some try to continue the storyline (Police Academy, American Pie) and just can't quite do it. Granted, sometimes those sequels are funny, but most of the time they are painful (Dumb And Dumbere, The Mask 2)

Saw Pirates 4 last night. I have to say, it was really good. Not quite as good as the 1st, but better than 2 & 3. And I like that it's a stand-alone (don't have to see the others to get this one). Let me say...don't F w/Mermaids! Dang! ;)

And as usual...if you go, stay thru the credits...another sequel set-up.

Saw a bunch of movies over the weekend:

Hangover 2: replace Vegas with Bangkok. Still very funny, though.

Green Hornet: so ridiculously awful/campy/fun/action-packed. It tiptoed between popcorn action/parody quite nicely. Very entertaining.

30 Days Of Night: shut it off just over halfway through. Boring, cliched, boring, and boring.

Revolutionary Road: whoever said it was similar to Blue Valentine was right, it's just a different setting. I liked it, although for different reasons (I liked the acting better in this one, while I prefer the story in Blue Valentine).

Just got back from the Xmen. It was good not great. I definitely thought it was the best one of all of the recent Xmen movies. The only problem is that I felt like I've seen enough of the Xmen in the last handful of years and I know how the story would end up. Still, if you haven't seen the first group of movies, this is the one to start with. If you have, still go see it. It's worth it to see it in the theaters.

Have a spare $6-8,000 laying about? You can bid on Robert Duvall's "Lt. Col. Kilgore's" combat shirt, yellow neck scarf and cavalry hat from Apocalypse Now.
http://www.profilesinhistory.com/debbie ... he-auction

The costume he wore during his famous "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" scene. Reynolds is selling her staggering costume collection and this piece is just one of thousands. Also George C Scotts Patten uniform, model ships from Midway, Peter Boyle's Monster tux from Young Frankenstein, Mike Meyers Austin Powers orange suit. These are just the ones I figured the guys would be interested in, never mind costumes from Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe (who has the honor of the highest estimate in the catalog..her white pleated dress from the famous subway scene in The Seven Year Itch which is listed at 1-2 million dollars).

I won the "True Grit" Netflix sweepstakes. Look forward to seeing it, as the original is one of my all-time faves. Also have "The Town" on the way, which I heard was good.

Seen on and stolen from Facebook:

Don't text at the Alamo Drafthouse theater.

If you do choose to text, don't be surprised when they kick you out.

If you get kicked out, for God's sake...DO NOT call their company voicemail and leave a profanity laced and grammar-free message. This may happen to you:

Texas movie theater makes an example (and a PSA) of a texting audience member

Alamo Drafthouse, a local chain of dine-and-screen movie theaters in Austin, Texas, has long waged a war against impolite moviegoers. And the latest customer to object to their firm rules against talking and texting during an evening out has become the unwitting star of a PSA released by the company on Monday.

I saw Super 8 yesterday. I thought it was entertaining but not great. I feel about it like I felt after I saw Signs (M. Night Shamalan movie with Mel Gibson.) I thought Signs was really good until the monster actually appeared. Once the monster was revealed, the suspense was lifted. Same goes for Super 8.

Donnie Darko. It felt like American Beauty on a bad acid trip, but in the end was a much more enjoyable film to watch.

I loved this movie. Which is saying something because I generally do not like the Gyllenhaals.
I've watched it between 5-10 times and it was extremely well done.

S. Darko was similar but different. If you can find it somewhere for cheap and enjoyed Donnie Darko, I'd recommend it.

X Men: First Class

Thoroughly entertaining. Didn't have a clue what the plot was about prior to seeing it. For some reason I have never watched the other X Men movies but will rent the rest of them after seeing this. Never understood why James McAvoy didn't have more high profile roles after The Last King of Scotland but it looks like he's doing a bunch of stuff now. He was terrific in this movie.

Have "Hobo With A Shotgun" and "13 Assassins" on their way. New releases on Netflix. Apparently they are the extremes in their respective genres (B-Movie and bloody action). Will report back. :D

I enjoyed "13 Assassins" very much, great battle scene that lasts forever and still manages to be interesting! Comedy, loyalty, fabulous cinematography, good script. "Hobo", not so much. I can laugh at the genre (loved Grindhouse) but the poor production values and cringe worthy "acting" made this one hard to watch. Like many an SNL sketch, what is amusing as a fake trailer, does not translate to a full length film. :confused2:

The question with "Hobo" is how much of it was intentional? I mean, in "Planet Terror," you have this gem:

Cherry Darling: I'm Cherry.
Dr. Dakota Block: You sure are.

From the trailer, it looks like Hobo is very intentional. But, will have to judge it after I watch the whole thing. :D

Just got done with "Hobo With A Shotgun." This movie is sooooooooo bad it's hilarious. Obviously done this way on purpose, it's got everything from any B-movie schlockfest one may have seen. It's not as smart as Tarantino's/Rodriguez's stuff, but it is more over the top. It'd probably even be better watching it MST3K style with drunk friends.

Watch Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. It's a recent spoof of a 1950s B-movie in the sci-fi genre. Hilarious.

I saw Horrible Bosses yesterday. It was just ok. Not great, not awful. Had a few funny lines that made me chuckle but that was about it.

Movie Pet Peeve: I know when you see a movie you are supposed to suspend belief, but there was a trailer for a new Anna Faris romantic comedy yesterday. Are we supposed to honestly believe that some one who looks like Anna Faris has a hard time finding a guy? There should be a moratorium on romantic comedies until they come up with something original and somewhat unpredictable.

The next James Bond movie's cast is starting round out. Looks like a very good cast. Javier Bardem as the "bad guy". That could be pretty damn sweet as he is great in that kind of role.

Movie Pet Peeve: I know when you see a movie you are supposed to suspend belief, but there was a trailer for a new Anna Faris romantic comedy yesterday. Are we supposed to honestly believe that some one who looks like Anna Faris has a hard time finding a guy? There should be a moratorium on romantic comedies until they come up with something original and somewhat unpredictable.


I understand that one of the premises of Horrible Bosses is that Jenifer Aniston is desperate enough to hit on some schlub who works for her. Does it get any harder to believe than that?
