Two Guns with Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington, on BluRay. 4 out of 10. A crappy rerun of Lethal Weapon-style wise ass LEOs cracking jokes and playfully dissing each other while creating mayhem.

You should probably watch Sharknado 2 before you make that claim.

Hombre (1967) with Paul Newman, Richard Boone, Dianne Cilento and Frederick March, on DVD. 7.5/10 Newman probably never looked better, except maybe for another Martin Ritt directed movie Hud. Excellent video quality DVD, I had to check twice to make sure that it wasn't a Blu-Ray disk.
I just put the book by Elmore Leonard on hold at the library. It is one of the few books by Leonard that I haven't already read.

Does that mean there should also be a negative scale?

I think that's what the SyFy Channel is aiming for.

1. The last movie I watched on TV was Snakes on a Plane. That movie sucked. 2. The last movie I watched on DVD was Yes Man. That movie also sucked. 3. The last movie I saw at the theatre was State of the Union. It was good.

saw The Giver over the weekend. it was a fair adaptation of the book. which is hard because it was the only book i read in my entire k-12 educational career that i actually loved. (and was actually interesting and good).
I enjoyed it and tried to distance myself from comparing the two.

i'd give it 6/10.

I've got the last book in the series at home waiting to be read, but I feel like I'm going to read the other 3 books first to do it justice.

Guardians of the Galaxy...

Pretty good movie for some fun escapism. Don't take the movie to seriously. Decent story with a good back story. Good effects for all the computer stuff they are doing now. Great characters... I am Groot! Very good sound track for people of a certain age. And a promise of a second movie, specially since the first one is doing so well at the box office.

Body Heat on BluRay. 8.5/10. OMG Kathleen Turner is smoldering hot! Bill Hurt did the the only thing any right thinking man would do when he smashed the door in to get a closer look. Great story, acting and soundtrack; good twist ending. I'd seen it before at the movies when it came out, and on DVD before, but got the Netflix BluRay to listen to the director's commentary on the making of one of my favorite movies. Highly recommended.

LEGO Movie is an easy 11/10.

No that is not a typo.

Watched Transformers: Age of Extinction and Blended (Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore) last night,loved em both. Blended started out kinda slow/sucky,but wound up being one that we'll definitely buy soon to watch again (we buy all the Transformer movies,so that one's a given,LOL,but we Redboxed em last night)
