In Theaters:

None. IMO, the theaters are a gamble these days. Hollywood has lost a step. Seems like the up and coming actors and actresses are nothing more than pretty faces with zero acting ability. On top of that, nothing has really caught my eye to the point where I would sit in a movie theater for an hour and a half to two hours.

On DVD:

"The Departed" (Loved it)

"The Good Shepherd" (Liked it)

"Flags of our Fathers" (Wasn't all that crazy about it)

"Letters from Iwo Jima" (Did not like it)

Also, I watched "Narc" last night on IFC. Very good and very underrated movie in my opinon. Ray Liotta was excellent.

none in the theater here either although i really wanna see the marvel movies: spiderman III, rise of the silver surfer, and ghostrider when it comes to dvd. i got suckered into seeing "the hills have eyes II" in the theater...:yawn:

i agree on "the departed" - excellent

i just "glory road" again. ive been catching bits and pieces all week. its one i can watch over and over, just like "remember the titans."

right now my daughter and i are watching "cars" although i think i like it more than her. i can watch that over and over too. if you liked "doc hollywood" with michael j fox, (which i did) its pretty much the exact same plot and movie, except with a cartoon racecar instead of a hotshot doctor as the main character.

"AT THE MOVIES"

Pirates of The Caribbean 3" - Wasn't as good as the other 2

"Shrek 3"- Very funny

"Spiderman 3"- wasn't as good as the other 2

"Knocked Up"- Pretty funny, I guess...I was laughing a lot


"MOVIES ON DVD"

"The Departed"- awesome

"300"- Not in the theatre anymore, not on DVD Yet...When it is WATCH IT, AWESOME.

I'm pretty much in consensus with most of the movies that have already been named. But from what i've seen so far (and i see everything),... 300 has been the only stand out at the theatre.

And the departed was 'The buisness' as far as DVD. I normally can't stomach Leonardo Defaggio for the most part. LOL (But he actually might have made me a fan with this performance)


I will admit though that my guilty pleasure movie this summer will probably be Transformers. Hey,...my generation grew up on them, along with GI Joe,....whadda ya want from me here ?!! LOL

Oh, I am definitely waiting to see "The Transformers".....LOL.....Remember He-Man?

I am also looking forward to seeing "The Fantastic Four" & "Harry Potter".....I could use my teenager as an excuse about Harry Potter, but I won't. I really like those films.

I'll see your 'He Man' Artemis, and raise you a 'ThunderCats'. LOL (Ah yes,...those were different times,...simpler times):sofunny:

Fantastic Four looks as if it will be better than the first one. Though i will admit that when it comes to the 'Super hero' genre,...i'm looking far ahead to the release of the 'Dark Knight' Batman Joint. And even further down the line to the 'Flash' movie that they're supposedly working on with Ryan Reynolds ?

Never really got into the Potter though. I can't sit through that much British accent,...unless it's a Guy Ritchie film. (Snatch or Lock Stock) LOL

I found that you actually have to watch the entire movie. If you miss 5 minutes of it, you'll have to go back. I tried watching it a few days after getting it for my b-day but my daughter woke up and by the time I got back, there were too many questions. Didn't feel like going back on it.

It flops back and forth a lot which drove me crazy but I thought overall it was a good movie. I liked the scene at the end when the old man apologized for not being a good father (like he thought he could have done better) and the son said you were a great dad (or something like that).

It was good to hear the story, I'm thinking about getting the Letters from Iwo Jima but movie purchases are on hold right now.
