Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I havent posted in a couple of weeks but I have been watching movies . . .

Olympus Has Fallen (2013) an attack on the president in Washington DC. 4 stars out of 5

Hysteria (2011) interesting sexual comedy drama. 4 stars

Sucker Punch (2011) I was having my brakes worked on and was sitting in the waiting room where a movie was playing with the sound off. A fantasy movie that looked too cool. It was playing on the FX channel and when I got home I looked it up on a TV schedule and ordered it from Netflix. The story that tied it all together was not great but the fantasy scenes were awesome. The story gets 3 stars, the fantasy parts get 5 stars

Hunt For Red October (1990) still great after all these years. 5 stars

The Impossible (2012) survival story about the Tsunami in Thailand. Well made and good story but I just don't like this type of story. 2 stars

Madagascar (2005) fun story and interesting to watch, but not great. 3 stars

Les MisÚrables (1998) this is the story without any music. I much prefer it with the great music. 3 stars

Planes (2013) I enjoyed it but it's just not wonderful. 3 stars

Cherry 2000 (1987) a man searching for the perfect robot mate. not well made but the story was interesting. 4 stars

Watched Rush tonight and it was excellent. Very good story and the audio was superb! It sounded as if I had a racetrack in my living room.
Man that's good to know. I gotta see it now! Thanks!!

I watched it a couple of nights ago and I thought it was very well done.

I hear Rush is awesome. Please let me know what you think.
I am a big F1 fan and I had very high hopes and expectations for this movie so I went to see it in the theaters and LOVED it. If you are a racing fan it is a must see but I also think that there is more than enough story there to keep just about anyone interested.

I rented The Kings of Summer on bluray from Netflix. It was an overall enjoyable coming of age movie indie movie had some funny moments.

Saw Instructions Not Included. Wife and I though it was a great family movie. It was touching.

'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs' on blu ray. Entertaining to a degree but I won't be watching it again very soon. $5 at BB.

We watched Captain Phillips last night. It was a riveting depiction and, as I understand it, a pretty accurate account of the event. We really enjoyed it and it looked and sounded good for the most part. There was a lot of video noise in the dark shots during the engine room scenes -- did anyone else notice that?

My daughter wanted to watch Mary Poppins tonight, so we all sat down to watch it - much to the chagrin of my 10 year old son...
