I just finished Home of the Brave with Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Biel, Brian Presley and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.

For the most part It follows 4 solders who are ambushed during a humanitarian mission in Iraq. It follows them back to the states and is much more a movie about how each of them readjusts or doesn't readjust to life back home. It's actually pretty sad and depressing but I thought it was really good.

8.0/10

Picking that up on the way home from work tonight. :-D

Don't expect too much. It was funny and entertaining but some of it was just plain stoopid. :-?

Wanda Sikes sucks. %-6


Definitely some cheesy spots, but all in all a good flick. I don't know grades, but I'd say probably a 7. Steve Carroll is hilarious. Love his quirky subtleties(sp?).

According to your Jessica Biel standards, that's a pretty awful movie. :-b

no country for old men - was well done, well shot, well written, and interesting. there was some very intense moments and awkward situations. really good movie, but a bit of a disappointment in my eyes. i will watch it again for sure. it was one of those that you walk out of the theater feeling kind of confused. the crowd i went with talked about it all the way to the car and the entire ride back to the house. so it will definitely spark some conversation. worth a trip to the theater to see, but not completely necessary. i'll rate it a solid 8.

Shrek the Third 7/10


good family flick, not much else to say. If you liked either of the previous Shrek films then you'll most likey enjoy this one as well. Donkey and Puss N Boots make a great comedic duo :-)

I saw Beowulf today in digital 3D and it was REALLY good. It was a totally immersive experience and for anybody that likes Science-Fiction or Fantasy, it's a must see. Not all showings are in 3D, so if you're interested, make sure you pick a 3D regular theater or IMAX. The movie by itself was probably an 8/10, but the 3D experience bumped it up to a 9.5/10 (A). ;-D

I just got back from watching it (sorry I missed our date) and I agree with your evaluation. I definitely need to watch it again as the ending was a little confusing. Don't want to really say why it was confusing as I don't want to give anything away, but up until the last 20-30 minutes or so, I thought it was awesome. Javier Bardem (who played the sociopath) was one of the best killers of any movie I've ever seen. I also give it an 8/10.

Watched Knocked Up for about the fifth time today on the car ride home from Pittsburgh. It definitely loses some of the laugh value with repeated viewings.
