What movies did you see today?

Saw "Flags of Our Fathers" yesterday. I liked it, but thought it could have been better. Very informtive though and it gives a real good story about the soldiers who raised the flag on Iwo Jima. If I had to rate it, i'd probably give it about a 7.5/10.

I heard "Letters from Iwo Jima" was better, might have to see this one too.

I really liked that movie too. I thought, likeyou, it could have been better, especially with a little easier to follow storyline. It jumped around just a bit too much, but I still liked it a lot and would have to give it an 8 probably. ;-D

Yeah, the thing that annoyed me was that I couldn't really make out who the characters were at some points, especially when they jumped to when they were all older.

Exactly. I wasn't keeping up with names very well and you sure couldn't tell by their faces due to the age differences. The story line wouldn't have been bad if you could've kept up with who was who.

Either of you read the book first? I found it very easy to follow the movie after having read the book. I didn't even need to be introduced to the characters. Even Rene's girlfriend I recognized before she even spoke, so I thought they did an excellent job of selecting actors for the roles needed.

No, I hadn't read the book first. That probably would have helped.

6.5 / 10
Very interesting, I came in here to post comments about this exact movie. And you said exactly what I was going to say. I'd give it a 7.5/10 though mainly out of the overall plot and creative twists throughout.

As I was about 2/3 of the way through the movie, I really started disliking the way some characters were headed and how things unfolded. But by the time it was over I thought it was a decent movie all in all. I thought the ending was awesome. I usually see things coming in movies and this one got me which was awesome.

Still I was expecting to like it more based off of how cool the previews looked.


Yeah, it had good production value and actors. It was entertaining, better than the Illusionist. I'd give it a 7.5, a solid rental.

leonardo stole the movie, and for once I didn't mind Marky Mark in a movie.

I've seen both The Prestige and The Illusionist and I thought The Illusionist was the better movie. Both were decent though, nothing spectacular. But maybe it was because I expected a better battle between Wolverine and Batman than what was in the movie. :-b
The cake is a lie.
