Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Labor day... the official review is up. not bad for a date night movie. I'm in an insomniac right now so I think something nice and manly is in order... something with Arnold, Van Damme or the like

If you don't mind stupid on steroids: "The Expendables II"

(all our fav macho made actors are in this movie. It's a sort of fun, spoof, homage to macho guy actors and needs to be watched with that attitude in mind)

We watched Odd Thomas last night. Pretty good movie but I did find the lead actress very distracting due to her poor acting skills. Worth a rental for sure.

We watched The Fifth Element tonight. I've attempted to watch (and enjoy) this movie three times now. While the audio is very good i just can't get into this movie.

What keeps you from getting into the movie?

(Disclosure: On many levels I like this movie)

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched Angels and Demons last night... I thought it was very enjoyable even though some of the parts didn't make sense on a timetable as to what could be done in a certain amount of time.

The main problem is the acting.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Watched two today:

Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Capt. America was great fun. A good story (in regards to the genre, obviously not Citizen Kane, but still good), lots of action, fun one-liners, made me feel like summer is here even though it was snowing pretty hard this morning. I enjoyed this C.A .much more than the first film.

Walter Mitty deserves a caveat. If you like the original Danny Kaye film, or are familiar with the Thurber story, this is not that faithful. However, I did quite enjoy the film, and with the exception of the Benjamin Button joke scene, found it to be more reserved comedy from a lot of the stars (Stiller, Wiig, Oswalt) which worked very well. The PQ was great on blu, with a pretty good soundtrack. Also the travel photography made me want to bust out my passport and book some trips.
