Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Rented "The Impossible" on bluray from netflix This is based on the true story of a family that got caught up in the massive tsunami in Southeast Asia back in 2004.
This movie was really well done and some of the scenes were very difficult to watch depicting some rather disturbing images of the injuries that people suffered. I was very surprised to see that it was rated PG-13.

I had high hopes for Iron Sky with the expectation it would still be pretty cheesy. The story had potential but it was a bit over the top. Entertaining though.

We watched District 9 last night. I saw about half of it a couple years back and finally watched it all the way through. I like the documentary style. Good story, well done.
ive had district 9 since its release date.it is a decent movie for sure

We watched Upside Down.
If Netflix allowed 1/2 stars I would give it 2 1/2. After negotiations with the wife we ended up giving it 3 stars.
I was not captivated by it.
It's the kind of movie where caring about the characters would help but I never got sucked in.
So live, die, win, lose, love.... I didn't cheer or jeer for anyone.
On the plus side no bad language, Hummm thought I would be able to come up with another plus.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I just got the 2 disc NetFlix option and am catching up on some older movies that are out on Blu-Ray
Last night was The Wrestler, about an aging entertainment sports wrestler and his homelife
When I finished the movie I would have given it 2 out of 5 stars, but I thought about the movie so much today that I have reconsidered and give it 3 stars. One of those movies that kind-of grows on you

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

"A Good Day To Die Hard", John McClane father (Bruce Willis) and son Jack McClane (Jai Courtney) must work together(LOL) to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy. On an international stage this time, Willis' son Jack is caught up in a daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader. Willis travels to Russia to make amends with his son who he believes is in deep, deep trouble.

Lots of action, bombs, rockets, automatic weapons and almost everybody is invincible..., almost..., just like in life. I hate these movies - but I love this one - I'll give this 5 stars (compared to GI Joe' 3 stars), Its got just the right lines for Willis and Jai..., they work well together. You..., I forgot this is a typical formula "action movie" it gets so much right. It glorifies new Russian tech, Yeah and personnel very interesting and funny and lots of fun.

Very entertaining!

We believe everything we tell ourselves..., don't we??

We watched the movie "Frankenweenie". We all enjoyed especially the kids. I highly recommend it.

I was originally kind of hesitant to be sure due to the theme of the movie (death and resurrection) and with the monster like animals but overall the kids enjoyed. Lot of references to other classic movies. Worth watching that is for sure!

We just watched Die Hard: A Good Day to Die. It was pretty action packed and we were amazed with the sound - very well recorded and mastered (very clear and lot's of bass).

Happy Listening!!! Listen with an open mind and heart!!!

Yeah . . . Frankenweenie was really good, saw it a few months ago.

Just watched Prometheus, what ride, very entertaining and visual
Starts out kinda slow and accelerates all the way to the end
Great movie worth every bit of 5 stars *****
