We saw Pain & Gain last night. This indeed has to be one of the worst movies I have seen this year !!! I could find nothing redeeming in this movie. It is trash from beginning to end and left the very important question as to why this movie was made unanswered. I must now go rinse my brain with something of worth.
certainly wasn't the best acting eh!

Thumbs down Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Watched Elysium! Sorry I purchased this one. Jodie Foster 's accent just about drove me crazy. Also hard to understand the villain's South African accent, mumbling at times.

What did you think of 2 Guns? Still wrapped in plastic but looking forward to it.
2 guns is basically "Lockout" just not set in space... Marky mark and Bill Paxton steal the show with their one liners.

Wow, that was on my 'to buy list'. Not sure any more..l
Pain and Gain is actually an excellent Satire. the problem is that a lot of people were shocked with the difference between the trailer and the actual film. the trailer made it out to be a dark action/comedy... when in fact it's a very dark, very brutal satire on the American dream. The characters (as in most satires) are blown up to unbelievable proportions and aren't MEANT to be taken as a serious character. Go into it realizing that it's a dark satire you may get something different out of it.

As usual you are correct Mike, however, it is so brutal and so dark that it actually goes to a place that is very uncomfortable for the viewer. I knew ahead of time what it was meant to be, imo it missed the mark and went way way too far. Again, like Mike said, maybe there is something redeeming here and those interested may find it.

Good Listening

Watched Killer Joe. I thought it was good but very disturbing and won't watch again.
