Da Vinci Code sucked, the pace was way too slow and never captured the excitement of the book but this one was able to recapture at least some of it. It felt like it was more for people who have read the book, leaving out the history and conversation for the most part and staying on top of the suspense. I think it's the best Ron Howard could do with it and I hope he sticks to letting the book handle the little details in the next couple of movies as well.


I saw this on the way over, and wasn't excited about it.
It was obvious that ewan mcgregor's creepy character was some sort of baddie from the start, and it was obvious that someone "in charge" was screwing around tom hanks' character. story-wise = zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Iron Man - 8/10 - Very good movie. I found the back story more interesting than Batman Begins, but I don't see the sequel surpassing The Dark Knight (though Scarlett could make it close :-L ).

The 6th girl you drafted in the Hot Chick Draft, Teddy.... she looks like a cross-eyed Olson Twin. Who is that thing??

Sorry, off topic, I know.

Yeah. I just googled her for research purposes -- its official. That ties Lambskin’s 2nd round selection of Xtina for worst pick of the draft.

Doubtvery well acted, Phillip Seymour Hoffman is one of the best in the biz. i was never really bored and i liked that the whole movie is kind of ambiguous about what may/may not have happended
8/10

I Love You Man- It started out really funny but the joke kind of wore thin after awhile. I started getting tired of it with about 20 minutes left in the movie, so that's not too bad I suppose.

Upon re-watching Batman Begins, I'm going to take this back. Batman is just so much deeper. Not to take anything away from Iron Man, because I still gave it an 8, but I'm gonna go with 8.5 for Batman Begins.

The Good Shepherd - 6.5/10

I enjoyed the technical aspects and intrigue surrounding the formation of the CIA. I didn't really care about the characters. Sometimes the constant changes in the time line got annoying. It was too long. The plot was interesting, although at times felt too complex.
