The main problem is the acting.
Yes, the acting was terrible at times but for me, it was a comedy/action sci-fi and if one looks at it through this lense, for my sensibilities, it was an entertaining movie. Yes, some of the scenes should have been done over as yes, they were pretty bad, like they hurried through the scene, just so everybody could go home for the day. But at other times, the acting was very engaging.

But I do understand, if one can't get past the terrible acting, they're not going be able to get into the movie.

Tonight's movie was the director's cut of "Das Boot."

(at 3.5 hours, it was a bit long for what was presented.....maybe the original theater cut would be a better choice)

Rented Thor: The Dark World on blu-ray from Netflix. I was a fan of the first Thor movie (as well as the Avengers) and enjoyed this one even more. Fun movie with a very impressive soundtrack.

We have "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Argo" on order.

"Now You See Me" is next in the queue.

It's baseball tonight.

The Fifth Element is seriously one of the best movies of all time. I never get tired of watching it

You had to love the scene where the military guys got stuffed into the freezer. Terribly acted but fun to watch.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched 47 Ronin last night... It was better than I had thought it would be... Man I felt bad for how Keanu Reeves was treated. I was surprised that it was sort of a love story too.

We watched one of my older favorites Conspiracy Theory. It's now available on Blu-ray and it really looks and sounds good. If you haven't seen it you should check it out.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I picked up "Alfred Hitchcock: The Essentials Collection" on bluray when it was on sale a few weeks ago for $32 and I got to watch North by Northwest for the first time over the weekend. I have to say overall I enjoyed it even though some of the plot was rather silly.
Video quality was excellent considering the movie is 55 years old. Audio was good but the volume level was very low forcing me to turn the volume up much higher than I ever have to just reach my usual listening level.

I've not seen that movie in years. I'll have to pick up the bluray when it gets around $5
