Kick Ass. It was amusing and worth the time even if for no other reason than...

I watched Inception and was, for the most part, unimpressed! I just don't like movies anymore, it seems.

OK, well, the last hour or so was actually pretty gripping and made it worth it to me in the end, but the problem I have with movies that no one else in the world seems to care about is attention to characterization. I don't care how great and "innovative" the concept of the movie is, I just can't enjoy a movie that utilizes one-dimensional characters as plot vehicles. Everyone had two emotions, scared and smug. By the end of the movie the only character I knew by name was Leo's and the guy who played Fischer, and I still wasn't even sure if Leo's character was named "Dom Cobb" or "Tom Cobb".

I'll take a movie about everyone sitting around and doing nothing but talking over a fast-paced action thriller any day. I like to care about characters, movies like Inception don't allow room for this in my opinion. Movies rarely do.

Shrek Forever After, although I really didn't get to see much of the movie, what I saw was extremely good, for a kid's movie. The Karate Kid was OK, but I really wanted to see Jackie Chan kick that smarmy instructor in the balls. That would have kicked the movie up to 11.

"PG-13" is as high I go in the MPAA ratings these days.

Exactly but he isnt even the main character so aside from the glorious torture scene you hardly see him.

The Messenger. Great movie, although it went a little long. I also had the nagging feeling I was watching Eminem in the lead, or that I should have been.

Another big problem was that the sound was like mumblemumblemumble BLARING ROCK MUSIC mumblemumblemumble. And if streaming Netflix has a subtitle or closed-captioning option, I've yet to find it.

Inception - Awesome. I wouldn't mind watching it again but I don't see how you would need to though to understand it.

Glengarry Glen Ross, which I hadn't seen in years, but this time around all I could see was Regis Philbin.

jesus i wish netflix streaming had a closed captioning option. fortunately all the foreign films we've seen so far on it have been subbed (fuckdubz), but yeah... english movies are only so good when you can hear them.

(i totally miss having the hdtv to hook up the laptop to, booooooooo.)

disappointing film with a cool cover. it was about an old man who wanted an heir so he could pass on his craft. it should have featured his craft more prominently, instead of just him being an asshole.

Expendables. It was a great laugh, I had a good time. Shame there was no Van Damme, but it was still classic.

There was a preview for one of those shitty Date Movie/Meet the Spartans type of thing based on the Twilight series, and it looked like the worst thing to happen to humanity since the holocaust; but the four or five thirty somethings sitting behind us laughed at every single preview joke we were treated to. Serious laughs, too. "That looks so good, I can't wait" said one guy as the Edward vampire character bit a pizza delivery guy in the neck.

I didn't think anyone actually watched them or enjoyed them. What a world we live in.

That's probably a situation where 30 somethings backlash at the Twilight being everywhere and they were willing to glom onto something as bad as that to do so.

Kind of an enemy of my enemy is my friend sort of mentality, only with movies.

"Vampires suck" looks so bad. To be fair Epic movie wasn't that bad. It had Crispin Glover as Willy Wonka.

My roommate visited and wanted to watch the Producers (the 2005 version). So we did. it wasn't bad. I actually thought Will Ferrell did really well.

SHUTTER ISLAND

It was ok for what it was. I'm not going to be a GRUMPY OLD GUS about it like I am with every single movie I see, because it was enjoyable, but I wish like damn everything about it wasn't so predictable. I would have liked the movie better if I wasn't correct Also I knew nothing about the movie before seeing it so I expected some supernatural spooky-island shit, which I would have prefered being the gigantic fag that I am.

It was the second movie I've ever seen with Leonardo DiCaprio, the first being Inception last weekend. Both movies have Leo's character being in a dream within a dream.
