Turbo was a very good family movie. Watched End of Watch after instead of Man of Steel. The movie was excellent. It's crazy what goes on in a police world.

We watched "Man of Steel". The effects were pretty good but I was a little disappointed in the movie in general.

Made the trek across town to see The Hobbit in IMAX 3D. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The previous Hobbit movie was OK but not great, I found this one much more enjoyable and really looking forward to the next one.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

We watched White House Down and We're the Millers over the weekend. Neither was a sonic masterpiece but we enjoyed both.

Personally, even though White House Down doesn't have the ULF/ELF that Olympus Has Fallen does, given that both films are light in plausibility or plot, I found White House Down more enjoyable. WHD had a more campy feeling to it, which helped keep me engaged. OHF just bored me to tears and I kept hope Gerard Butler would get shot to make it interesting. Admittedly, I really dislike Gerard Butler and find that I want to see his characters get shot in most of his films, but this one even more so.

As for We're the Millers, we went in with high hopes as we had been told it was funny but were a bit nervous. It seems that a lot of the recent comedies haven't been all that much to our liking (This is 40, The Heat, RIPD, all kind of stank for us). We found this film funny from start to finish. While it doesn't cover any new ground was an enjoyable ride and one we will probably revisit a few times down the road.

I watched World War Z last night. I thought it was pretty good. I'm glad I hadn't read the book yet because I'm sure it will be very different.

I definitely need more subs (or different subs) because I experienced port chuffing last night on one of the grenade scenes

The book is very different. I'd argue that the film is more nuanced, but the book was more fun if you enjoy campy-pulpy-zombie stories. Both are solid though.

The wife and I just finished watching "The Way Way Back" What a great movie and very touching especially when it touches close to home.

Thanks for the info. I wouldn't say I especially enjoy campy/pulpy/zombie stories - the only reason why I bought the book a couple years ago was because of a friend's recommendation. I just never got around to reading it. It's pretty short so it shouldn't take me very long. I'm sure it won't make me enjoy the movie any less though
