I saw Four Christmases last night. Not a great film but pretty entertaining, actually a lot better than I thought it would be. Vaughn and Witherspoon had some pretty good chemistry and it was good for quite a few laughs. I'll give it a 7.5/10.

Also watched Wanted. Good effects but didn't care for some of the plot - guess that's what happens when you take something from a comic book.


So by that logic, you didn't like The Dark Knight then, right?

:*) :-?

Haven't seen it but I doubt it. Was thinking more along the lines of the first Punisher...

The first punisher... or the one a few years ago? I thought the one from a few years ago was ok.

Bring back Dolph Lundgren. Seriously, I'd watch a sequel if it involved him playing the role of Frank Castle. ;-)

As a former X Files fan... it pains me to say that the newest movie was a heaping pile of crap. Yes, that was me being nice. 3/10 ... again, me being nice.

The best part was when Gillian Anderson googled "Stem Cell Research" ... printed off the first few hits, then went into an experimental stem cell surgery on a kid.

Have any of you seen the TV Miniseries Roots? I'm thinking about giving my sister the boxed DVD set for Christmas. I know that it was widely acclaimed in the 1970s, but I've never seen it myself so I can't be sure if it'd still be a good watch 30 years later.

Any suggestions?

I'd definitely suggest Roots. I haven't seen it in a while, but I remember seeing it when I was a kid when they ran it as a miniseries on TV. It was really interesting and something I still remember over 15 years later. I wouldn't mind owning a copy of it myself. If she doesn't like it for some strange reason, I'll give you my address! :-b

Anyone seen the Day the Earth stood still? I'm hearing many mixed reviews so far. Mainstream reviewers saying it's trashy while some friends say it's alright...

Dunno if I should go out to see this one or not.

Mixed reviews = wait for DVD. I don't go to the theater all that much so when I do it better be good. ;-D

Saw it tonight because I happened to have the night off from work (never happens) and I'm a sucker for anything showing on an IMAX Screen. It was a pretty solid sci-fi movie that looked great in the IMAX format. Keanu Reeve's stiff acting actually fits his role for a change and the storyline was decent (I've never seen the original so I can't compare the two though). Overall, it was a good not great movie (I'd give it about a 7/10) and personally, if I couldn't see it at the IMAX, I'd probably just skip it altogether in the theaters and wait for the DVD... ;-D
