I've been catching up on a bunch of movies out on DVD during my traveling. I guess I've either been watching bad movies or I'm getting too hard to impress. I can't remember the last movie I've seen that I would rate higher than a 5.


Black Dahlia 2/10
I couldn't even make it through half of the movie. I expect much better from De Palma.

Dead Man's Chest 4/10 2.5 hours? 45 minutes of action? Ouch. Davey Jones looked cool at least.

Superman Returns 4/10 Better special effects than the 80s version is no surprise. What was a surprise was that they found a way to make the story less appealing.

World Trade Center 2/10 Alot like Dahlia, I expect much better from Oliver Stone. 2 hours of two guys trapped and in pain and one psychotic Marine. I didn't think a story about a national tragedy could put me to sleep.

Mission Impossible III 3/10 Best part of the movie is that they have technology to steal a person's looks/voice from a couple photos in under 5 minutes, they have remote controled gatlin guns, and all sorts of other high tech gadgets but they don't have a defibrilator that can charge up in under a minute.

Click 2/10 I had pretty decided that Sandler movies weren't worth watching anymore. Now I'm sure of it.

Geez, Louise! Is there a movie you do like? BTW, I almost compared An American Haunting to Tailor of Panama. I didn't, but I know you'll appreciate that comparison.

Can I put in recent movies I saw, too? Thanks.

United 93: I can't give this movie high enough reviews. If I had to pick a movie that I would say I will show to my children to explain what it was like that day, I'd pick this movie.

Went and saw The Pursuit of Happyness last night and it was pretty good. I'd give it 7/10.

Pursuit of Happyness? Well, we now know who wears the pants in the Big Pimp's house... :-D

Just got back from We Are Marshall. 6/10

Good movie but probably best left for DVD. Disappointed because I expected it to be great but the pace is horrible. McConaughey was excellent as Coach Lengyel.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Hell yes there are. But everything I've seen lately has been utter crap. If a movei studio wants to impress me, give me a heartwarming tale of a man and his boomstick.

I thought MI:3 was better than what he gave it.
