Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Saw Pacific Rim. Horrible. Forced. Michael Bay meets Godzilla meets Battleship. So many bad adjectives come to mind I won't list them all. I have no idea what I was expecting. I thought I had heard decent reviews on it, but maybe it was just the hype from the studio's propaganda machine seeping into my brain. My wife fell asleep 45 minutes into it and unsurprisingly didn't feel like finishing it.

How I wish someone had said "Today we cancel the production of this movie!" before they got so far out of hand.

Just watched The Conjuring last night and boy o boy is it spooky!
Looking forward to that one but I missed my lowest price opportunity on Amazon to pick it up. It's back up to around $24.

Couldn't agree more. I got the 3D/2D disc (read good reviews) and although the 3D is pretty good in its effectiveness, the movie itself is complete junk to me. As soon as I saw the two bros climb into their machine and start jazzercizing as if on elliptical machines (and hard drugs) or something it was over for me. The rest is a big, jumbled A/V cheese and noise fest.

Good call.

Yup. I wanted it but waited until after Christmas since it's about giving to others, not to myself. Hahaha. Apparently, I waited to long. Shoulda grabbed it at $12.99. Hopefully it'll bounce back down soon.

Watched iRobot on blu-ray. What a fun and entertaining movie. Fantastic PQ and AQ. I love (I'm sure most do) that tunnel chase scene where the robots attack Will Smith's character. Wow, HT demo for sure.

Saw Lone Survivor over the weekend - what a great movie. Very intense and powerful movie, every American should see it.

I went into the movie not really expecting all that much - and from a purely plot / acting standpoint that is what I got. That said, I thought the visual and audio aspect were really good - it is the movie I put on to show off my subs... ;

I also want to put this one in once I get my Catalysts up and going.
