    "Wild Hogs" is actually pretty funny. i wasn't expecting anything, so i guess watching a movie with no expectations is good. the jokes, while somewhat predictable, were done well.

    I saw Get Shorty yesterday. Pretty good flick. I like wiseguy movies. Now I'm getting Be Cool so I can watch them back to back.

    I just watched Black Hawk Down again. Havne't seen it in a long time. If that is the way things are ran, no wonder we are still in Iraq.

    I saw Be Cool. It makes much more sense now that I've seen Get Shorty.

    Watched Predator last night, still a classic.

    Speaking of Predator, [link=http://imdb.com/title/tt0758730/]AvP 2[/link]

    Still a ways out but interesting that they are actually going to make another.

    I seen a trailer for The Nines the other day. For you puzzle heads out there, head to [link=http://www.ugo.com/a/the-nines/?cur=main&content=default]The Nines Puzzle[/link] and the movie website is [link=http://www.lookforthenines.com/]Look For The Nines[/link] .

    Man, I wish I could post a review about HP.

    Still no such luck for this frozen ol' scoundrel.

    I finally got to see 300....on the guy scale I give it a 3 out of 4 stars. I have to say I agree with Tone on this one per our conversation at Chipoltes. Too many liberties were taken with the Persian forces, but I still find myself quoting grom the movie often. As for HP I still have not seen it either JMD or CH or whoever you are.

    You have to realize 300 was an adaptation of a comic book, which was based on the real story. The stuff that is inaccurate was also inaccurate in the comic. The movie is amazingly spot-on with the comic. Check it:

    Sometimes you need to see a movie twice before you could really enjoy it. I had to watch Platoon twice to enjoy it.

    i don't "like" platoon. i appreciate its qualities, but it's not a movie that i'd watch again. also, why watch a movie again if you didn't like it the first time? i usually know within the first 20 minutes of a movie if it is a good investment of my time or if i should go do something else.

    Actually I agree more with Tone on this then Garbage.

    Example SW ep. 1

    I saw opening day twice in a row. After 20 minutes during the first showing I almost left and couldn't believe how bad it was. However, I stayed liked it more and more, and then saw it again.

    I like it even more today, most people think this is the worst but I still think ep. II much worse. If they didn't have the battle at the end this would not even be a debate.

    but did you ENJOY the epI experience? i found no enjoyment in watching platoon. therefore, why would i expose myself to 2 more hours of non-enjoyment?

    good point, I was stuck on the ep I deal as I did advance purchase of tickets and I can be rather cheap.

    Platoon is a tough one because it tugs at you on so many levels.

    Combine that with every time I hear the soundtrack I feel like crying and I see your point totally

    and in other movie news:)



    I saw,

    The Greatest Game Ever Played,


    over the weekend.....who knew a film about golf in 1913
    coud be so good.

    Great story of classism (both British and American)
    with a true story of an ametuer american golfer (only 20-yrs old)
    being told not good enought to play (in more ways than one)
    and

    his 10-year old caddie!


    so, best for film-buffs and golfers.

    Just finished up Miami Vice. I was not all that impressed with the storyline. I was expecting more action from this type of movie. Stealing a quote from another review "All hype, not enough substance."

    The last movie I went to was Pirates 3... but I rented Transformers for the boys last week and it rocked!!! I had no desire to see it, then I found myself getting the boys tucked into bed as fast as I could so I could get back downstairs to finish it.

    Saw the movie 'Next' over the weekend with Nicolas Cage. It is about a man who has the ability to see 2 minutes into the future. Except one girl who he can see for much further. Was very happy to see it.

    Since I don't have the budget for movies anymore, I think we need to start The official TV review thread, or perhaps the Official Conquer Club review thread.

    I saw Indiana Jones. It was very entertaining for me. I'm not sure why some people disliked it. I went to the midnight showing and the crowd really helps with these kinds of movies *GASP* *OOOH* *HAHAHAHA*
