Thanks for not laughing at that whole "Notebook" thing. :-)


ACK !!!

A thousand No's. I had to endure that movie with my wife. Now I can understand a guy liking it if he is all loved up with his Mrs or approaching death (AKA Lush) but other than that its a terrible movie for a guy to have to sit through. :-b

Norton is my favorite actor and this is one of my top 5 favorite movies.

10/10

Norton is the man. His grandfather, James Rouse, planned the "community" I live in (Columbia, MD) and he went to high school here too.

Some other movies I just saw,

Mean Streets: Good movie but crappy ending.

raging Bull: another solid movie, kinda boring in some parts though.

Motor Cycle Diaries: Solid movie from start to End, kinda left out alot of info though...

I watched Super Mario Bros. for some reason.

This movie is really, really, really, really bad. They completely ruined the video game. I liked the TV show the Mario brothers had way better.

2/10

Not to worry, I have seen some classics lately.

Psycho: Alfred Hitchcock is amazing. If you haven't seen it, you have to.. just for the twist alone. I want to see more of his movies but they don't have a very big Hitchcock selection at the video store.
9½/10

The Big Sleep: They just don't make movies like this anymore. Everything is dialogue driven, and the plot is fantastic. Humphrey Bogart is pure gold.. I literally wrote down some of his lines after watching this movie for personal use. In my unbiased opinion he is right up with Marlon Brando as the best actor ever*.
9/10

The Magnificent Seven: This is a transposed version of a Kurosawa samurai movie in a western setting. You take Eli Wallach, Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, James Coburn, and Charles Bronson and put them in a great plot and add memorable theme music. I approve. James Coburn is the one who steals the show for me. The best scene in the movie is when he proves the old saying wrong by taking a knife to a gun fight and winning. Why the movie fails to live up to Kurosawa's is because Toshiro Mifune is vastly superior to the German actor who played his part in this one.
9/10

*In my biased opinion it's obviously Clint Eastwood.

Nice call ... that's a hell of a knife fight. Coburn is one of the all-time cool movie dudes. McQueen right up there too.

American Pie Band Camp

Its so bad, all I can say is, what a shame. 2/10

Four Brothers:

This has to be one of the crappiest storylines to EVER be made into a movie. Absolute crap!

"They put a contract out on mom" LOL I about pissed myself laughing.

I'm really glad somebody else agreed with me about Four Brothers. The user rankings on Yahoo gave this a B+. 8-o At least now I know I'm not taking crazy pills.

Oh, and thanks for the tip on Band Camp. I was thinking about checking it out, but now I won't bother.
