We finally got around to watching The Amazing Spider-Man and really enjoyed it.
If this one has slipped through the cracks for anyone else I recommend giving it a spin.
Even though it's Spider-man 4 it feels fresh.
I missed this when it was in the theaters but picked it up on bluray in 3D when it came out. I have to say I enjoyed just as much as the original and a lot more than the third one.

You're a bit behind my friend. You and Joe need to sit down for a couple of days and catch up. I'll DJ so to speak.
I hear ya mate - we are in full on baseball mode with the boys right now so it has been at least a week since I have been able to watch anything. My theater misses me.....

I thought this might be a fun ongoing thread. You get to see what others are watching and may find a new movie for your collection. New, old, color, B&W, foreign, concert or whatever...its all good.

I'll start with an excellent animated flick with rich detail and a good soundtrack: Tim Burton's Nine
Excellent indeed!

No argument about that, we really have not been watching many movies for a few months and I don't foresee that changing for a while.
We make a point not to watch trailers or read reviews so even though we arrive at the party late we still have our fair share of fun.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

My wife and I caught Star Trek: Into Darkness last night and really enjoyed it. This should be a very fun blu-ray when it is released. In case anyone is wondering, we watched it in 2D (I can't watch 3D as it gives me terrible headaches very quickly). I can't attest to how well the 3D effects worked for those watching that version, but I was pleased that the 2D version didn't suffer from it. There were no cheesy "its coming right at you" moments that some films released in 3D suffer from. I really wouldn't even guess this was a 3D release based off the film (I mean that as a compliment BTW).

I also watched Glory (1989) on M4k. Great film, and the cannon fire during the battle scenes can rattle the windows.

Rented "Killer Joe" on blu-ray from netflix. WOW where to begin with this movie, I will say that overall I liked it but it is definitely not for everyone. This really is a love it or hate it movie and I can see a lot of people turning it off after just a few minutes. It is a very dark and twisted movie.
Your review is spot on.

I enjoyed the movie as well but I hesitate to recommend it, it is pretty twisted and dark like you say and that is putting it mildly for some. Still felt a little creepy though after watching it and the GF hated it. I did gain some respect for McConaughey's acting ability, he really took a chance and sold his character well.

If you are a prude even in the slightest then skip this movie, you have to watch it for what it is, a movie, not real life.

I rented Raid Redemption a while ago and enjoyed it so much that I purchased it. It is just pure action adrenaline with some amazing stunt work and martial arts choreography. It really is almost non stop action with just a hint of a story

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Gangster Squad was pretty dang good. Read a couple reviews and people were knocking "character build up" and other stuff, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. My girlfriend (she falls asleep during 90-95% of movies) stayed awake through the whole film and enjoyed it a lot!
I recommend seeing this flick!
