    I watched the latest X-Men movie and I thought it was a blast. I thought the female CIA agent was not a very good actor but the rest of the cast more then made up for it. I'm giving this 3.5/5 as there were a few cheesy scenes and some moments of over acting but overall this was something I would watch again.

    Nope not a sequel to Taken.

    Speaking of Taken, I thought it was a great movie! 5/5 for me. The sequel should be coming soon, read somewhere that they were going to make one.

    Grace: 3/5. A couple years old and unreleased in theaters. An Indie that made its rounds of horror film fests. Concerns an expectant mother who decides to carry her stillborn child to term, only to give birth to a vampiric baby. Grotesque, horrific, and with a magnificent central performance by Jordan Ladd as the mother. Drags a bit here and there, but never boring. Definitely not for the squeamish... (especially during the breastfeeding scenes.)

    Tried watching that one a couple of times but somehow I couldn't get into it. Let us know how you liked it.

    Yeah, it was suggested by a friend. She said I would really like it, but if I watch it with my wife she will hate it. Her theory is that Fido only works for one person in a relationship, and never both. I'm watching it in about an hour with my wife, so i'll let you know the outcome.

    Just finished watching Fido. My wife and I both really enjoyed it. It was actually a very clever movie under the surface of it. Placing it in 1950s America was a genius stroke which added to that satirical edge. And what's not to like about... the outcast boy searching for a friend, the sexually repressed homemaker searching for a companion, the provider spineless husband, and the near perfect idealistic town as a backcloth to the tongue in cheek suburbia haven for zombie harmony - yes, perfect. Two things my wife did during the film was comment, "This is stupid", then let out a huge laugh. The second was sound genuinely upset when she assumed Tammy the erotic zombie girlfriend of one of the neighbours was shot in the head and would die.

    Yes, wonderful film and right up both our street.

    Going to sleep now.

    4/5

    I haven't been to the theater to watch a movie since The Dark Knight (5/5 by the way). And I haven't even been keeping up w/ new releases on DVD. The newest movie I've seen is Toy Story 3 which we watched this weekend. And that was also a 5/5. I'd heard that just about everyone got to crying at the end, but I can be a pretty tough nut. And I had my youngun on my lap, so...

    I'm really surprised he didn't ask me why I was crying.

    This isn't a movie I've recently seen (I saw it about 4 months ago), but it's one of the best new movies I've seen this year:

    Source Code:4.5/5. It's smart, mysterious and completely engrossing. It helps that it has a great story to tell. Marked down 1/2 point because when it has a chance to explain the technology it uses, it balks, but I don't know that anybody could explain it fully, so the 4.5 may actually be a 5.

    Every year, there's at least one early-year release that if it had garnered big-name attention, it would have been an over-produced "dummertime" blockbuster. If it had starred someone other that Jake Gyllenhall and Michele Moynahan, it might have been one of those. Good thing it didn't. Check this one out if you haven't seen it.

    I've seen the trailer and I definitely want to see it.

    Kung Fu Panda 2: my wife and I walked out of it. And I wanted to like it, as Kung Fu Panda is, IMO, easily the best animated film Dreamworks has done. But the sequel was just boring with no character development at all. We stuck with it for an hour before we both decided we'd taken all we could. 0/5

    X-Men: First Class: The best movie I've seen this summer. Not perfect, but a whole lot of fun. 4.5/5

    Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides: Boring, but I stayed for the whole thing and enjoyed parts of it. 3/5

    Cars 2: Way too much Mater; it started out slow, but by the end, was enjoyable enough. 3/5

    See again i have heard split reviews of Battle LA, though i think i will like it being a red blooded male and all

    I watched 'The Mask' last night for the 1st time in years, it was great because i had forgotten most of what was going to happen!

    Watched "Life as We Know it" last night. I think this would go in the chick flick category, but being a father and having gone through some of this, there was a lot I really enjoyed. I thought the storyline was brilliant and dramatic. Really enjoyed it. 5/5

    Also, "Hereafter" had some incredible filmography. The story was a little weak for me, but interesting. Overall a very good tale. 4/5

    Luckily there have been some good selections recently on cable and I've been able to catch up with some older movies I never saw before. I'll just give a broad stroke of 4 out of 5 for the lot because they were all highly enjoyable in one way or another.

    Planet of the Apes, 2001, A Clockwork Orange, The Princess Bride

    and one recent movie, I Saw the Devil. also 4 out of 5.
