The comebacks - ugh ... I'm a glutton for punishment. It was better than I thought it would be... but yeah... :-°

Classic! ;-D

I love the scene right after John Candy gets his coat stuck behind him while driving and they get spun around and they're going the wrong way....

Other driver: YOU'RE GOING THE WRONG WAY!
Neal: He says we're going the wrong way...
Del: Oh, he's drunk. How would he know where we're going?

Hilarious. :-b

Watched a couple movies over the last few days.

Rendition
Makes you wonder how often US intelligence agencies use this tactic. Movie overall was OK, but I thought it could have been better if the movie didn't tell us right away that the rendition victim was innocent. Should have left that part vague until the end, but unfortunately went with the abuse of power angle. Jake Gyllenhaal needs to stop playing moody, depressed characters in all his movies.
6/10 :-°

Gone Baby Gone
Ben Affleck's little brother's big show, I guess. Ben's official directorial debut too. Movie is based off some books, same author as Mystic River, and the movie's tone and ambiance is similar to Mystic River. Movie was pretty good and did a good job of keeping the twists surprising instead of making them obvious. Kinda getting sick of the BAHston accent though.
8/10 ;-D
The cake is a lie.

- great perfromances from all involved and Javier Bardem is a flat out pyschopath in this flick. I just wanted more closure at the end of the movie and I feel like the last 30 minutes of the film could've been done better. However, I still really enjoyed the movie and look forward to seeing it again so I can pick up on some of the more interesting plot tidbits ;-D



Spoiler Alert. Don't go any further if you don't want to know. ;-D


























The Ending was Simply Brilliant. Why is there a need for closure? The Bad Guy wins and gets away. We don't need to see the point when he finally gets caught. :-°

Top 5 movie all time for me. 10/10. I hope it takes down all the Oscars. Well maybe I'll catch There Will Be Blood if it ever gets here.

Yeah, that was great. :-D

I liked this one too:
Neal: What's the flight situation?
Del: Simple. There's no way on earth we're going to get out of here tonight. We'd have more luck playing pickup sticks with our butt-cheeks than we will getting a flight out of here before daybreak.
Neal: I guess we'll find out soon enough.
Del: Yeah, but by the time the airline cancels this flight, which they will sooner or later, you'd have more of a chance to find a three-legged ballerina than you would a hotel room.
Neal: Are you saying I could be *stuck* in Wichita?
Del: I'm saying you *are* stuck in Wichita.

And the famous:
Neal: Del... Why did you kiss my ear?
Del: Why are you holding my hand?
Neal: [frowns] Where's your other hand?
Del: Between two pillows...
Neal: Those aren't pillows!

license to wed ... meh... so much of it was so unrealistic and some scenes went on WAY too long that it annoyed me... overall average... but I just haven't been watching too many good movies lately... Part of my problem is having the unlimited rentals and renting anything and everything... :-°
