We watched Escape Plan and Out of the Furnace today. Escape Plan was ok but Out of the Furnace was really good and highly recommended.

Quit recommending such great movies. I'm still getting caught up on the other great recommendations. Okay, seriously though, this is where I come to get good movie advice and we do have 2 queued up for the weekend that I learned about here.

One has to have some sort of source to keep the terrible movies out of the tray.

We have "Escape Plan" in the buying queue and "Out of the Furnace" looks like an excellent addition.

I have been hooked on the iTunes Music Festival. If you have Apple TV, You need to check out the iTunes Festival. Amazing concerts in an amazing venue. Plus it gives your speakers a chance to really shine.

The Counselor was rather slow and boring in my opinion.

Wow! Ridley Scott, PenÚlope Cruz and Cameron Diaz.

Maybe they should have written it as a comedy. Cruz and Diaz can be funny. Loved the comedic chemistry between Penelope and Salma Hayek in Bandidas.

Maybe it was a guy chemistry thing.

...

Last night's movie was "Robin Hood" with Russel Crowe. Also by Ridley Scott. For us, the accents made for a bit of difficult listening but other than that, excellent sound track and action entertainment.

good call! I tried checkin out soundgarden and Coldplay lastnight. I don't have Apple TV, but I went to iTunes Store with my iPhone, and sennheiser ear buds. I have terrible internet where I live so I had some trouble in competing with my wife for bandwidth. Lol. However, what I did catch was awesome! My favorite dish channel is palladia. 98 percent live music. Festivals, concerts, private sessions, sessions at Daryl halls house etc... Good stuff. (Satellite tv sonic quality notwithstanding obviously) lol

Yesterday, I started working through the recommendations from the beginning of the thread. From Amazon, we ordered up "Contact" and "Hanna." With shipping, total price, $13.95 USD or <$7.00 USD each. Our local theater charges $7.00 USD for each senior citizen.

The point, think of it this way, considering the price of admission, if you shop carefully, you and your spouse are getting the same entertainment for half-price. This does not take into consideration the price of popcorn and worrying if somebody is going get shot for texting their child.
