Might be a good idea but we're senior citizens and we don't get along well with three hundred mile road round trip, road trips and a movie. We'd end up having to get a night's lodging, dinner, breakfast and a drive back home. But we do like road trips and it is an idea worth pursuing. ...
That's what I'm talking about! Right up our alley. Don't think about it…just do it.

Thanks for the encouragement. I talked to the wife about the idea and she didn't say "NO!".

Good movie although a bit disturbing and hard to watch at times. What did you think of it?

I thought it was pretty good. Not all it was cracked up to be but still a pretty good film.
Does make you wonder, I'd have no problem "taking care of someone" who messed with one of my kids but, what if it wasn't him..........

Prisoners was great. The director, Denis Villeneuve, also has a great short film titled 'Next Floor'. Highly recommended:

Honestly honey, I forgot how short the cord was.

...

Last night's movie was "Escape Plan." It was okay. Visuals were okay but in my opinion, the sound track was mediocre. Schwarzenegger was terrible, and according to the credits, he had an acting coach. The movie qualified as two hours of commercial free entertainment which means this movie "beat the alternative."

The Giants had the day off and Comcast's idea of programming content last night was absolutely terrible. We use blu-ray movie content to fill in the middle, giving us a reprieve from commercial television which now seems to be more commercial than entertainment. Stabbing yourself in the foot with a fork, twice, was a better alternative than what was offered by Comcast last night. All of a sudden, "Escape Plan" wasn't such a bad alternative.

I'd give it three stars as it wasn't such a fail that it was unwatchable but it wasn't one of Stallone/Schwarzenegger's best collaboration. If purchased used on Amazon, when nothing else is on, we were grateful for it's inclusion in the to be watched drawer.
