Neat? Neat? Bobbleheads are neat.....Don't sell Tombstone short man !+) :-D


Tombstone is over-rated.

Val Kilmer is great, but Kurt Russel and that stupid fake moustache :-t


First off, how is Tombstone overrated? And second, where did you hear that Russell's stache was fake?


i had always heard about "what a great movie" Tombstone was and when i finally watched it, my thought was "eh, this is OK". just my personal opinion

that thing had to be fake, and if it wasnt, it looked pretty ridiculous on him...i think that might be part of the reason for my opinion on the movie

Val Kilmer was top notch though


That movie had so many quotable lines, though. It was a classic for that alone, IMO. ;-D


Will it go down in history as a cinematic masterpiece? No.

Is it a movie that you can watch over and over again and still enjoy? Definitely. That is why I like it.

Good story line which kept us intrigued throughout the movie - some rather racy sex scenes between Mortenson and Bello (she is hot) but the only downer on this movie is the end. It did not make sense and after taking the audience on a good thrill ride the ride stops abruptly.

7/10


My wife and I thought the sex scenes came out of left field on that movie. We looked at each other and said, "Wow, didn't see that coming from the previews..."

While watching that movie, I kinda felt like it drifted along, didn't seem to get anywhere, exploded with a graphic killing (the close up of the guys "brains blown out the back" head), then the sex scenes throw in. The whole movie was kinda loose-ended. Odd movie, I thought.

So how graphic is this brains blowing scene and the sex scenes? Will my rather straight-laced wife like this, or will it be too much for her?

it didn't make me flinch or give it a second thought, but i'm from "generation desensitization". that movie didn't do much for me anyway. slow, boring, predictable. that's how i'd describe it.

Very graphic. Regarding the sex scenes, I don't think of myself as a prude (what guy would?) but I was a little uncomfortable. Of course, I don't watch that type of stuff with my wife.

I agree - my wife and I looked at each other and wondered what the significance of the first one was and that it came out of left field.

All in all, I thought it was a good movie but agree with you that it was loose-ended. As far as the graphicness of the killing scenes - they really weren't that bad - the guy in the diner and the one in the grass (busted nose) were really the worst but if you saw Resoviour Dogs you can handle it. It isn't like they stayed focus on the gore.

I had free passes for See No Evil.

Good stuff. Kane (WWE Wrestler) played the psycho killer who stalked young, beautiful teens who were trapped in a hotel.

Good horror, gruesome and gory violence. 7.5/10

Me too. I give The Ringer a 5/10. Had a couple of funny parts, but overall it wasn't that funny. Then again, it's supposed to be a heart warmer, but it didn't do a great job of that either somehow.

just saw King Kong. very well done movie; excellent acting, great special effects. too long, and a couple of parts just made me laugh because they were stupid. ex. they skip the part where they come up with the amazing plan to get kong back to america on a boat that he is twice as big as. :-b

very pleasing. 9/10
