Feeling a little behind the times ... We watched John Carter last night for the first time. It was pretty good - enjoyable enough. Same goes for the audio/video.

Flight.

It was heavy, but good. Denzel Washington and Don Cheadle, make interesting characters that fascinate you without you really liking them. Solid acting throughout, and some fun scenes with John Goodman. Overall, I enjoyed it but doubt I'd watch it again.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Last night I watched Total Recall and Trouble With The Curve.

Recall was entertaining enough with the non-stop action, but the story line was pretty thin. It was certainly not the disaster it has been made out to be though. I would probably watch it again someday.
Is it just me or is Jessica Biel just completely unbelievable in the strong female role ??
When it comes to physical characteristics there is more similarity with Kate Beckinsale than difference, but while Beckensale is believable as a action hero/villain super chick Biel just doesn't do it for me at all.
Something of note... This movie had lip sync issues, it started out and everything was synced, gradually though the audio was noticeably lagging. Even though I never have to readjust the audio delay off of 2.5 frames I tried to compensate in the AVR, it didn't work at all. Stopped the movie and went to the root menu and resumed play, audio was synced and maybe 10 minutes later it was lagging to the point of being comical.
We just ignored it, with the occasional laugh out loud moment when you would see the muzzle blast and the bad guy fall before you heard the shot (yes it was this far off) so not sure what's up with that.
It sounded fine, just completely out of sync on a system that has been aligned.

Curve was overall a very good movie. I am prone to be biased against Timberlake from his boy band roots, but every time I see him in a movie or interview, or impromptu setting he comes off as believable, genuine, funny, and over all nice guy.
Curve is a talking movie with Eastwood doing more grunting than talking, and Adams character Mickey even though not a push over, falls for the guy a little to easily.
Keeping in mind there is limited time in a movie it works well enough and is a satisfying enough experience.

Anyone else that is behind the curve on their movie watching should give these a spin.

I have done that, I really enjoy these movies.
The last real marathon I have done was the Alien box set along with Prometheus. It was fun, but I probably never need to see any of the old Alien movies again.
Alien marathon was definitely the way for me to go, otherwise would have given up after #2.... LOL

Tonight I rewatched
National Treasure and National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
My wife and I both really enjoyed these movies.
We don't understand why they were not more popular when they were new releases.
Another movie in the Indiana Jones vein is Romancing The Stone, with Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, Danny DeVito, I think it should have been a bigger box office success than it was.
