It's a slow movie, worth staying awake for.

(very interesting concept)

(i wouldn't give you five minutes for that watch but I'll give you ten minutes if you take this clunker of a car)

We really loved this movie.
I finally watched the ending of About Time and it is definitely a great movie. I can now understand why my wife cried.
Great concept for sure!

Finally got around to The Wolverine.
I liked it and I really liked the Easter Egg.

Enders Game
Liked it, they followed the book pretty well.
This might be one of those movies you need to have read the book to get the most out of it.

I watched Gravity last night. I like its story specially that moment when she prepared her to go back on earth.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Last night I watched Spike Lee's OLDBOY. I know it's an unpopular opinion, but I actually preferred it to the original. But that's not saying much because I hated the original. I really tried to enjoy it, but I found the "artistic" aspects to be somewhat lacking. Especially that highly-touted hammer fight which is poorly staged and unrealistic. The gang could take him in an instant if they just jumped him all at once. Instead they stand around pretending to throw things at him one-at-a-time but hitting the wall instead. The staging in the remake is much better. That being said, I give it a 6 out of 10. It's all pretty standard and the performance by Sharlto Copley as the villain is ridiculously over-the-top and bizarrely AND stereotypically fey.

Watched Hunger Games: Catching Fire and it was just as good as I remember when watching it in the theater. Really impressed with the audio on my Reference setup and can't express how good Klipsch speakers sound come movie night! Bring on some Game Of Thrones!

Last night we watched Thor. Or at least part of it and it was bed time for the kiddos. Not sure when we will get to watch the rest

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Watched R.I.P.D. which is a MIB knockoff, the sound track was flat and lacked depth. I had trouble with a dirty disk and the sound had distracting cut-outs. I checked and cleaned the disk during play and got some of the trouble corrected but found out today, that I should have gone into the kitchen for a better cleaning which fully fixed the distracting cut-out.

The movie plot was shallow, yet managed to be entertaining. Kudos to Mary-Louise Parker in her agent 99 (dry Barbara Feldon) style role. A few spaced out beers with some popcorn will definitely enhance the plot.

Well I guess I've now been inspired to throw fly boys in the player. I haven't seen it for some time, and when I saw it, it was on DVD. :-( I can't remember how good the soundtrack was, but I was excited to watch it, and was quite entertained. I've always loved war movies, and that one has a unique story, that I enjoyed.
