What movies did you see today?

Been gone for the week, so I have a little bit of a movie report:

Batman Begins

Go see it. I still prefer Tim Burton's first Batman, but this movie was done exceptionally well. The cast lives up to billing, the world is dark instead of cartoony again, and there are many easter eggs for die-hard Batman fans stemming from both the comics and the cartoon.

9/10

Galaxy Quest

This was a surprisingly funny movie. The main characters play former sci-fi TV stars whom an alien race in need of salvation mistakes for a real spaceship crew. Tim Allen was perfectly casted to essentially parody William Shattner. Any Star Trek fan would absolutely love the movie, but its funny even if you don't get all of the references. The best part was the red-shirt guy. "I'm the guy who dies to prove the situation is dangerous!"

7.5/10

Desperado

Its been too long since I saw this movie, because I forgot how good it was. No sense of realism, but just a great style throughout the whole movie even the fight scenes. One of, if not Antonio Banderas's best movie. You gotta love the guys with rocket launcher and gattling gun guitar cases, a one man assault on an armored car by a knife thrower, and best of all, the bar fight.

9/10

Cheesy ending...I give it 7/10


Was that you and the baby sitter, or signifigant other :-] ?

I saw National Treasure and it stunk. Worst .99 cent I ever spent.

OMG! Please tell me that there is something in this for you. No man should have to watch this.

Watched Flight of the Phoenix last night. Man, that movie was not what I expected at all. It really caught me off guard with alot of the surreal editting. It was a decent enough movie for the most part but started coming apart towards the end, much like the plane in the movie.

I'd say about a 6.5/10.

Man i just saw batman yesterday and it was an absolutely AMAZING movie. It made a superhero acually realistic, and they set up the next movie real nicely with him looking at the Joker Card.

5 thumbs up!

Over the weekend I saw Batman Begins and Glory, and I have to say I enjoyed both very much. Batman surprised me, I didnt expect much more than a half-hearted effort to take the series to another level. Its serious and dark tone were welcome relief at the goofiness of the last couple movies. Glory, a civil war movie about the first black regiment, was very entertaining and definitely worth a look. There was fine acting provided by Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman, and Denzel Washington as well.

These movies are kinda dated, but since I spend all my times on this form and work, we have to stay home!! *joking* ha ha ha!!

I saw Blade Trinity on DVD. It sucked!! If you thought National Treasure was bad, Blade 3 makes that movie look like an Oscar winner!! :-t

Oceans 12 was okay. As long as you did not try to poke holes in the movie, it was not bad.

My wife and I watched 13 going on 30. It was light heared and entertaining. ;-D
