Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Wife and I watched Broken City last night. Not a bass heavy hitter but the score and effects were quite enjoyable. At one point in the movie, a door gets kicked in and my wife jumped in her seat

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

T2 Skynet Edition. Made me furious.

[rant]
I want to cut off the designer's oxygen supply for the length of time equal to the Blu-ray start-up sequence load time. This is by far the worst I've ever seen and it was wasn't even good. I have a new Sony S790, which is no slouch (has dual core processor) and I have 25mbs download, yet the animated background wouldn't even play without freezing. When I finally got through the ridiculous version and audio selection, I was left with a totally blank screen for at least a minute: no "loading" message, no progress indicator. I despise the clowns who produce this rubbish. Do they really think annoying a customer by making it take 10 minutes to start a movie and not even knowing if its doing anything is good business sense? [/rant]

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I don't have the skynet edition, but I can't stand overly complicated intros/menus. Just let me select my audio/subtitles, and get on with the film. Having to sit through that stuff (or previews of old movies) is infuriating. I also can't stand the piracy warnings and copyright notices. Only people who actually bought the movies have to sit and watch those :/

Earlier today, we watched "Memento". No matter how many times I see this movie, it is always a surprise to me. Just an amazing movie! Highly recommended.

lol. Man, "memento" is an awesome movie. I suspect if you watch it over a second time, it will make more sense. Just a great movie. I still enjoy watching it!

My wife and I watched Mud last night. Very good story line, solid pacing, and when the action scene kicks in at the end, great dynamics. The last part really took me by surprise as this is an almost entirely dialogue driven film, then...bam!

Great flick. My wife and I use one of the lines as short hand for us being completely bass-ackwards about what we were/are doing.

"Okay, so what am I doing?
Oh, I'm chasing this guy.
No... he's chasing me."

I love that line.
