Flags of our Fathers - 8/10 - I love war movies and this is definitely a good one. Doesn't glorify America at all and it was nice to see the story of the Pacific campaign.

The Departed - 8/10 - the ending was a bit overblown and there were some drawn out scenes but pretty entertaining gangster movie. Internal Affairs, the movie that this onbe was based off of, was a lot better IMO.

The last movie I saw was POTC: Dead Man's Chest, which was "aite." I mean it wasn't really a great action flick, but it was ok enough for me to enjoy it. The CGI effects were stellar though, but Graphics can't replace an engaging story or snappy dialogue.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

I agree about the ending.... I'm going to have to see Infernal Affairs now. (I think its Infernal and not Internal)

I watched The Prestige last night. Not a bad flick, with an interesting twist at the end. 7.5/10

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Watch closely. ;-D

Next movie in my queue. I didn't like the Illusionist that much so hopefully this isn't like that. I love Nolan though.

Cool. ;-D

Don't want to build it up too much, because I've heard some people didn't like it at all. I like Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale a lot, and they both were terrific in this movie- so maybe it was just up my alley. Or maybe I just enjoy movies that keep you guessing until the very end.

I haven't seen the Illusionist yet, but it's on my list.

Christian Bale is worth the price of admission alone IMHO.

The Pink Panther 2/10
Is there anything worse than a Steve Martin who has obviously lost it, doing terrible and painful to listen-to fake accents?

The Benchwarmers 1/10
Oh yeah, David Spade just being himself. How this annoying little maggot has made any money as an "entertainer" is beyond me. The worst thing since Andy Dick.
