    See any good movies lately?

    In the past few weeks I've seen:

    Valkyrie - OK. Not as bad as expected, but not amazing either.

    The Wrestler - Nice, well made, little movie. Micky Rourke and Marisa Tomei both deliver great performances.

    Grand Torino - Another good one. Ol' Clint shows that he's still got it, and then some.



    So, in the end I'm 2, maybe 2.5 for 3.

    I would like to see all three of those, but haven't.

    I have seen Benjamin Button and Seven Pounds in the past couple of weeks. Both well worth seeing...

    Before those two, I don't think I had been to a theater in over a year.

    I saw Charlie Wilson's War. Decent movie.
    I want to see The Wrestler, just for Marissa Tomei.

    Curious Case of Benjamin Button - Not bad, but just a long respin of Forrest Gump.

    Superman Returns (DVD) - Made it through half last night. Long movie and boring. Not sure if I'll even finish it.

    Two more that are on my "to see list"

    I spent the whole year with almost nothing that came out that even got me interested in going to the theater... then suddenly a half dozen movies that were worth seeing came out.

    There are a few more on the horizon that look interesting too.

    "The Russians are Comming, The Russians are Comming"
    Watched it with my 17 year old son, once he understood what the fears where on both sides, he was laughing more than I was.

    I watched Horton Hears a Who and Kung Foo Panda this past weekend, they were both awesome! Watched Joe Dirt again, definitely a classic! Also watched School of Rock and Deliverance, still a great movie!

    I don't go to the movies often, I would much rather watch them at home. In my opinion watching them at my place is a much nicer experience, better video and sound.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Got dragged into BrideWars. I laughed, I cried- ok, not quite. It was ok. I'd recommend it as a matinee or a rental.

    Really? Sad. I was interested in seeing that. Guess its a RedBox movie.
    i woke up one morning and i stepped out of bed | had to get a bike, had to paint it red
    Of all the treasures I have, itís the memories that are the most precious.

    Not really a good movie, but if you want a mental downtime, fun movie, Yes Man is acceptable.

    Doubt was very good. If Filo Betto is serious that GT was his last movie in front of the screen, he's going out John Elway style.. Looking forward to seeing the wrestler. Everyone can't be wrong. Can they?

    Something you and I can agree on. If I may add my two cents about the movie Seven Pounds. It was a great movie that can show just how unselfish a person can be. Will Smith is someone who decides that good people deserve more than what is usually thrown their way. How he decides who is good or bad could be controversial, but still true human chararteristics and traits.

    Woody Harrelson has a small but substantial role. He has always been one of my favorite actors.

    I know where the title word Seven comes from, but for the life of me I can not figure out the meaning of Pounds.

    Anyone know?

    Eagle Eye was pretty good. The basic storyline was interesting and had some decent action as well. Dark Knight was very good also.

    Milk... thought Sean Penn and Josh Brolin were pretty amazing.
    Thought generally very well done and very worth seeing, in the end, I found its revisionism a bit bothersome.

    Marley and me. Good for a few laughs but left me with a heavy heart thinking about all my doggies. Jennifer Anniston seems to have an amazing ability to look in the mid 30s for about the past 10 years.
