We watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty last night. It was simultaneously interesting and random and bewildering so I am not sure what to think of it at this point. But I think I can recommend it.

We watched Still Mine last night. Excellent movie to watch with the wife but be sure to have a box of Kleenex handy. Highly recommended.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Zero Dark Thirty...........

I can't say it was bad. I can't say it was good. I can say it left me stunned because I didn't know which way to go with the feelings the movie created as the producer kept a laser pointer on the main character.

This movie had so much dramatic potential and yet, in my opinion, didn't develop what they had to work with, in it's two and a half hour run time. I don't know if I can recommend the movie or say, view it at your own personal disappointment risk.

The movie is not for the squeamish, nor is it a family friendly film for it's intensity. The movie dialogue in the first third of the movie is hard to follow as the producer is putting a boatload of information on the table and much of the dialogue is muffled. By the last two-thirds of the movie, all of this seemed to melt away.

In the end, this type of movie is one, where one has to view for themselves to decide if it's a movie worth recommending.

I read the review. Thanks for all your effort......

Was the movie on the level of "Army Of Darkness." Now that movie was a hoot. Or was it on the level of a darker comedy that was also a hoot?

Think so bad that you're laughing type of humor. There's no humor in the film itself. It takes itself seriously ala underworld or van helsing; and feels very much in the same vein

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Got it. You're laughing at the movie, not with the movie.

(now that's a bad movie when the corn of it all becomes the entertainment)

Neither of the two movies you mentioned, interested my wife and I so it reads like we wisely made the correct decision not to view each of these movies and based on your fine reviewing efforts, will do the same with "I Frankenstein." One of our personal turnoffs are movies that try to take themselves seriously when it's obvious, they shouldn't be taking themselves seriously. We can't count the number of movies we watched where if they had taken themselves seriously, even if for a moment, would have ruined the movie.

Out of curiosity, based on my comments regarding "Zero Dark Thirty", did I get it right or did I miss the producer's intent?

(i expected more or better out of this movie and came away, i guess, stunned in disappointment as the movie failed to reach the heights i suspect it was capable of)
