    I'll start it off with:

    Legends of the fall. (Hopkins/Pitt) :thmbsp: :thmbsp: :thmbsp: :thmbsp:

    I was surprised that it was that good.

    "Walk the Line".
    Good stuff.

    As for "Legends of the Fall," my then GF and I saw it in the theater and i think we left early because we were laughing at all of the scenery chewing. The Anthony Hopkins stroke bit was too histrionic for both of us.
    "A River Runs Through It" is an excellent filum, though

    I vaguely recall, way back when, one of my then-wife's friends giving her a copy of Legends because of Brad Armpit being the hot rage at the time. After about 20 minutes, I was sitting there babbling WTF over and over. I think the wife lasted about 10 minutes longer before she came to the same conclusion. The only distinct memory I have left is trying to figure out why the movie makers expected me to believe that any turn-of-the-century man walked around with shoulder length hair like Boy Brad.

    Black Dahlia.

    I screamed.

    Not because I was scared.

    But because the movie sucked.

    I was suprised- and really disappointed- being interested in the Black Dahlia murder, one would expect a movie called the Black Dahlia would primarily deal with that- but no, in this movie, the focus is on a pair of boxers that become cops, Josh Hartnett loving, then hating, then loving, then hating, ect Scarlett Johansen and Hillary Swank, and a small iota of the Black Dahlia murder to tie in this somewhat distantly related story to the murder of elisabeth Short.

    My vote?

    Last night I saw "Ghost Rider".
    I read that this movie cost almost $100 million to make.Couldnt tell by the special effects,the quality of direction,or the quality of acting,or the script,or....well,you get my drift.This is B-grade comic book filmaking,on a par with the Punisher,and I dont mean that in a good way.I was really disapointed with the acting,since they had quite a good cast.Now I know why this film wasnt prescreened for critics.Not horrible,but definetly not a first class film.Your kids might like it,as long as ghosts and such dont scare them.
    Guess I gotta wait for 300,and for Spiderman 3.

    Saw The Departed a couple nights ago at home with my wife. The cast was Nicholson, DeCaprio, and Damon. Anything with Jack is good with me.

    The movie was full of deception about a police department trying to bust a mobster's ring. Really good movie and I'm no Siskel and Ebert, matter of fact I really don't like movies other than they're fun to sleep to on the couch.

    Went to see "A Night at the Museum" Christmas night w/my sister, cousin, Lauriann, & another girl & her date. Pretty good kid's flick, I guess.Going to a movie on Christmas night is a family tradition Mary Lou-my sister, Julia-my cousin, & I have had for several years now.

    Picked up "Cool Hand Luke" last week at a thrift, so I popped it in the VCR last night.

    Yeah, I should have mentioned that it's not a kid's flick with it's choice of colorful words. I too had to send my kids in search of something else to do.

    I always liked Strother Martin. He seemingly always played a character that was a bubble or 2 off level..

    last movie I DLed..Talladega nights....

    Never been much of a Will Ferrel fan... and this movie reinforces that ...I mean a grown man running around on the racetrack ...in his undies...thinking He's on fire... sorry ...just dont clik with me...

    I give it maybe one thumbs up:thmbsp: ...and one thumbs down:thumbsdn: ...so I guess it's neutral....

    The Undead.

    Scenes stolen from "Night of the Living Dead", Zombies, Aliens, buffoon cops, and acid rain (so the girls have to strip down to their undies).

    What's not to like? :thmbsp:

    Just got back from the $1.50 matinee of "Casino Royale"

    Geez Louise, what a great movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I love Bond flicks, especially the Connery ones, but this could EASILY be the best ever, it's that good.

    Who'd a thunk it??????
