I saw Shooter yesterday at night on TNT

(I wanted to stay up until 2:00 am to see the rest, but I just couldn't stand being the only one awake in the house, so I went to sleep at 1:20, so I didn't get to see the ending :( )

I went to see The Goods: Live Hard. Sell Hard.

It was alright. It's not on the same level as Anchorman or Step Brothers but it had its moments. There was only 1 true gut buster and some of the jokes either fell flat or were predictable. If you've seen the commercial, those are not the funniest jokes in the movie and it has its moments. Cool story line, but some of the scenes felt a wee bit awkward.

However, Will Ferrell had an EPIC cameo and his scene was by far the funniest thing in the movie.

I saw GI Joe a couple of days ago. I wasn't impressed at all. I grew up watching GI Joe and Transformers as a kid and pretty much had every toy and comic book they had out. I was skeptical about Transformers, but was pleased how they updated this classic cartoon in both movies. As for GI Joe, I won't be buying it on dvd or watching it again. It had some great moments, but I felt it tried too hard to updated to concept into today's action films, and ended up using waaaaaayyyy to much cgi. I could have accepted to movie if the Paris chase scene was left out.

Hi:

Is this thread just for discussing movies in theaters now, or for movies we like in general

(I haven't gone to a movie theater for a long time)?

Thanks.

Zeppy^, it started out as movies people have seen in the theatre, but like most threads, it has morphed to include just movies people have seen in general -- at friends' places, rented, etc.

Well, I saw Tetro yesterday by Francis Ford Coppola.

(Side note: IMGL was one of the previews. It was really cool to see snippets again. No release date was given, but I hope it makes it to the big screen here).

Anyway, "Tetro" was a really beautiful movie. It's not a visual or storytelling style that will appeal to everybody - some reviews found it boring (it's not designed to be a high concept blockbuster) while other high brow viewers thought Coppola was just ripping off previous masters. That's an unfair assessment imo, because influences from good movies are inevitable and such an opinion over-simplifies Coppola's efforts here. I guess I don't know enough about 'true masters' of cinema but I think it's worth seeing it on the big screen. Engaging story in a gorgeous look.

How was the movie Jahfin? I'm on the fence about seeing it.

As long as you know going in not to expect a recounting of the performances from the concert itself, I think most everyone will enjoy it. One thing that threw me off is how people starting showing up at the main character's doorstep the moment the original concert entered it's early planning stages. It was as though as soon as it became an idea, everyone starting flocking to Bethel when I'm pretty sure that wasn't the case at all, though the movie seems to portray it that way. Otherwise I really enjoyed the film, the angle it takes does a great job of conjuring up the sights, sounds and feel of the times. I also found the psychedelic sequences to be especially well done.

Thanks Jahfin. I've really been on the fence about it. It looked a bit hokey in the ads but you can't really base it on that.

One of my fave gangster movies. I also just watched some of the Sopranos over the weekend and it's the first time I've seen it. Man, am I behind the times. :lol: One episode was where Tony kills the guy that set the horses on fire and him and the other guy cut up the body in the bath tub. Like Joe Pistone said in the book 'Donnie Brasco': Wise Guys are from another planet. :blink:

I also watched 'The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde' (1968) with Jack Palance.

He is just too creepy looking as Hyde and he plays the role to the hilt. :)

Funny, I've never seen the Sopranos either. I love the Godfather, the second is the best, but I don't get HBO, so...

I think I'll re-watch Serpico this weekend. Love Pacino!!!

Just saw Taking Woodstock, it was good. I loved the theater group who lived in his barn haha. At the end, i just felt like it was missing something though :/

Like maybe seeing at least a glimpse of the concert itself?

Believe it or not, I've never seen Iron Man. For an action flick it lived up to all the praise friends have given it. I enjoyed Man On Wire but my fellow viewers were asleep within the first 10 minutes.

I saw that when it first came out. I enjoyed it though it's been years since I've seen it.
