    I watched The Crazies and Due Date today. The Crazies was nothing like I expected, but I liked it. Due Date was good too, but I don't like Zach Gala-whatervers character, he's a bit of a bitch.

    When RDJ spits on the dog, I laughed my ass off. I didn't see that coming at all. Soo fucking funny

    Just finished checking out Welcome to the Rileys. Took a little while to get going but not a bad flick.

    Very underrated, both by audiences and critics. The characters are vapid, pretentious, and totally self absorbed but you still feel more affection for them than 99% of characters cooked up by Hollywood.

    Whit Stillman understands that characters are what drive stories; many film directors would do well to remember this.

    I've finally reached the point where I cannot stand seeing a movie in a theatre, so I'm entirely dependent on Netflix.

    Currently - in between episodes of "The Wire" (I'm on season 3) - I have "My Neighbor Totoro", "A Fistful of Dollars" and "Sansho the Bailiff" in the immediate cue.

    Did you like Kristen Stewart?

    I watched The Next Three Days last night. It dragged a bit in the middle but was entertaining overall. Bonus points for Olivia Wilde.

    Watched Mother the other night, really great movie. The same dierector also did the Host a few years back which was also badass. Both must see movies IMO.

    Also rewatched Love Liza, fucked up movie.

    I watched Wah Do Dem last night which just might be one of my favorite films ever, haven't seen anything as good in months. Also saw Youth In Revolt which I had passed on when it came out but decided to see it based on a co-workers recommendation. Was actually much better than I had thought it would be.

    Was it worth it? I did about 15 min of part 1 and thought it to be okay. Haven't decided whether to continue or not. Watched a few min of Law Abiding Citizen again the other day Spoiler Alert . . . . Okay, here's the thing, for anybody who has watched LAC do you think the movie would have been better if Gerard Butler gets away at the end? I think the movie would have been 10x better under this scenario. . . . End Spoiler Alert

    Sup.

    On the flights watched Stone which I thought was actually not bad. Not great, not awful either but still pretty good. For most of it.

    Social Network which I liked a lot.

    Couple of the Charlie Brown stuff (actually like that shit).

    Some neat documentaries about the Himalayas and the building of the Millau Bridge...seem to think I saw something else that I enjoyed.

    It's been a while since I last watched it but I somewhat agree with you. From what I remember, they did some pretty unconventional Hollywood stuff so I was surprised that they didn't just let him be at the end. Funniest scene was the cellphone/gun, btw. [​IMG]
