I missed some of the beginning so I couldn't figure out why the same guy was killed like 10 different times. I give it a 7.5/10...I'm definitely going to watch it again though.


Yeah, I sort of got the sense watching Hero that I just wasn't cool enough to *get* it. But, the visuals were stunning and it was sort of fun to watch.


I really like that movie, at least I did when I saw it. The movie is almost like a TV show in that it is split up into segments. The effects were stunning.

yeah, he was pretty sick to look at, but i thought it was a pretty good film. i rated it quite a few threads back, think i gave it a 7

I went to the dollar show twice last week cause there isn't anything IMO worth seeing at the main theaters.

I saw Running Scared and Hostel which I both liked.

I give Running Scared 7/10 stars -- lots of action and I liked that many of the characters were given plenty of screen time. The story was a bit far-fetched but was good, tense action film nonetheless.

I really enjoyed Hostel, I give it 9/10 stars. This movie had it all -- naked women, humor, suspense, decent acting, violence and gore. One of the better horror movies I have seen in a while. ;-D ;-D

Watched Donnie Darko tonight. Loved it. Watched the Director's Cut though...anyone know if the it's way different than the original? As a child of the 80's, the soundtrack kicked a$$.

I am watching "Remember The Titans" right now. Man the only football movie that even comes close is "Rudy". The sports movies that are based on a real life situation are so much better than the ones that are made up.

Most of the sports movies that are true stories are not so much sports movies but movies about the human condition and overcoming adversity. That makes for a killer story that everyone likes.

Not using this as a blatant advetisment for a movie being filmed right now, but one that should rival the best of the sprots movies will be "We Are Marshall"

Anthony Mackie Nate Ruffin Team captain (one of only a few upperclassmen left)
Kate Mara Head cheerleader
Kimberly Williams-Paisley McConehey's charictor's wife (country music star Brad Paisley's wife)


director McG (of Charlies Angels fame).

Sorry about the blatent advertisement for this movie, but I am a graduate of Marshall U that is the subject of this movie. a university that lost many sons, daughters, fathers and mothers in aplane crash in 1970.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

I saw Thank You For Smoking yesterday night. I thought it was great. Loved the humor and the plot. I'm sure people who smoke will enjoy this movie more than people who don't.



9/10, a movie I would recommend to most people.

Saw TSOTSI last night.

It won the Oscar for best Foreign Film.

Although the film was very predictable I thought it was still very good. I recommend it to those of you that are interested in watching a non Hollywood movie. Watch it if you liked City of God.

7/10

watched wolf creek....

entertaining for a scare --- 8/10
the whole thing pretty much reminds me of various nightmares i've had throughout my life...stuck being chased by a psycho and just cant get away....


whats funny/aggrivating is how people once again like to say..man, that movies based on a true story...based on means nothing....the bulk of the scary scenes take place when the the only guy that makes it out alive is not around..in other words, the true story was never told...he gets tied up, gets away, and the 2 girls never show up again...all the dramatic torturing of the girls was never proven to really happen....but yes, entertaining
