You think you're behind in your movie watching Pablo? I've got you beat

The Illusionist 7/10
The Prestige 8/10

Yay magic! The Prestige has a much creepier ending, but I liked The Illusionist as well. Both had great endings.

Let's Go to Prison 6.5/10
Look this isn't a masterpiece by any means, but I enjoy me some stupid comedies. It's still better than any of the garbage the Wayans Brothers put out.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry - 6.5 - 7/10

The plot isn't great, but hopefully nobody expected it to be. It has a ton of good laughs, and Jessica Beil is sexy as hell the entire time, and her butt looks fantastic. James and Sandler are both funny dudes, and if you take it for just the laughs, you won't be disappointed. Wait to rent it, but definitely worth watching.

Transformers - 8.5/10

I loved it. Took me back to my childhood. Great action, the transformers themselves looked and sounded fantastic; there was a little bit for everyone. I can't wait for a sequel, and will definitely be getting the DVD.

The Lakehouse - 1/10

In response to JT rating it -- literally the worst movie I've ever seen. Horrible.

Jessica Biel ;-D

Rest of the movie :-t

I knew it would be bad, but not that bad. If it wasn't for Jessica Biel being half naked in a few scenes, it would have been a 2 or 3.


It's a shame because Adam Sandler and Kevin James are both very funny.

Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking as I left the theater. I mean, there were funny parts, but the gay jokes got repetitive.

This doesn't seem to be too surprising. The fact that they included a scantily clad Jessica Biel in the previews :-L tells me that the marketers knew the movie wasn't that great and they needed another reason to draw people in.

I agree with h0rts comments here.


I also saw Knocked Up... 7/10 I don't even really have much to say but it was ok.

I'd wait to rent both of these movies.

So this isn't a movie review, this is actually a concert review but I didn't want to start an entire new thread.

After spending $160 a pop for tickets, $30 for parking, $10 for my beer and briefly considering and then rejecting the $45 T-shirt I got to see the Police on Sunday.

The bad
-Sting's son's band Fiction Plane opened for them. :-t :-t :-t
-Sting looked good but he is slowly turning into Skeltor.
-Andy Summers looked like a grumpy version of Eric Idle. He should have been happy that the other 2 saved him from obscurity.

The good
-No new album meant that they played all of their old hits, and there are a lot of them. So Lonley was incredible. I think that they ruined Roxanne and Don't Stand so CLose to Me by slowing them down and jazzing them up but the ruined songs were few.
-Sting's voice is still incredible. He was belting it out and his voice was as clear and powerful as ever ;-D ;-D .
-Copeland was a crazy man. He did a great job jumping from is standard drum kit up to the large precussion section behind him.
-The energy. They have never been a high energy band and being an old trio none of them had any breaks or the stamina to run around a lot but they brought their energy to the music and put on a damned great sounding show.

Overall 7/10 and worth the money

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry: 6/10

Idk if it's just me, but does seeing the same guys in EVERY SINGLE ONE OF ADAM SANDLER'S MOVIES make it seem like they are all the same movie? I mean Adam I get the point, they are your friends, now let them try to make careers on their own.
