Watched Man of Steel last night and although I was disappointed in the movie at the theaters I was satisfied with watching it at home. It had some great moments for sure but some of the fight scenes were very redundant as was mentioned earlier. If I was to rate it when I first saw it at the movies it would have been a 3 out of 5 stars. However seeing it this time around was more enjoyable. 4 out of 5 stars for me.

Two Guns. This was a bit drawn out but I enjoyed it a good bit. Wahlberg and Washington worked great together and frankly to me their personal interactions were the best parts of the movie. Ok, the toro scene was most cool as well. Definitely a rental.

Good Listening

Saw American Mary on Netflix, it was good if you don't have anything else to watch.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched Killing Season last night..I'm not quite sure how I feel about this one..Robert De Niro was great,as always, but the story was kind of weird and all over the place...Travolta had a Serbian accent (which he did very well) but, it was just an odd role to see him play...Overall, It's worth a watch/rent, but I wouldn't buy it

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I just bought a new Onkyo 5.1 surround receiver, so over the last week I have been pumping quite a few movies through the Blu-Ray player to check it out. Here are most of them.

Pan's Labyrinth (2006) was a fantasy story during wartime. I enjoyed it a lot but there was some violence that I could have done without. Worth 4 stars out of 5.

Iron Man 3 (2013) Not as good as the first two but still a roller coaster ride of a movie. I thought the new Iron Suit that would come and cover him when he called it, was taking it a bit too far. Still good enough for 4 stars

Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) fun to watch and entertaining. But the newer Trek movies are ignoring basic science and it makes it hard for me to enjoy them as much as any of the older material. They also don't follow established story lines and that bothers me. Giving it 4 stars anyway.

Epic (2013) An animated film with a weak story but striking visuals and totally awesome music track. Throwing 4 stars at this one too.

Moneyball (2011) Story about a baseball team manager that starts recruiting new team members using mathematical formulas instead of intuition and consultation. It was entertaining enough to keep me watching, but I don't like baseball or it could have been better. Worth less than 3 stars to me.

Phantom of the Opera: Special Edition (2004) This is a movie of the Phantom story, not of the stageplay. Great music and singing with incredible sets and costumes. I have never seen the Broadway show but the movie was wonderous. Well worth 5 stars.

Perfect Pitch (2012) Great movie about an A Capella singing group making their way through national competitions. A laugh a minute with this one and some excellent music to go along with the comedy. I'll take this one up to 5 stars.

Thor (2011) I had seen this one more than a year ago and really enjoyed it. But the second viewing wasn't so fun for me. Was 5 stars on the first viewing and 4 stars on the second view

Battleship (2012) Earth sends a message to another Earthlike planet and things don't turn out so good for Earth. Another Alien invasion movie with killer visuals and some sound that will blow up your subwoofer. Not exactly scientifically accurate but well worth the ride. Going all the way up to 5 stars with it.

Parker (2013) A robbery gang angers a member and he leaves the gang, then makes it difficult for them to pull off the next few bigtime thefts. Many things about this story are not possible and the story slow enough that I was wishing it would end. I'll generously give this one 3 stars.
