This is one of my favorite movie quotes of all time from Nacho Libre, in context I found it pretty hilarious:

Nacho: I'm a little concerned right now. About... your salvation and stuff. How come you have not been baptized?
Esqueleto: Because I never got around to it ok? I dunno why you always have to be judging me because I only believe in science.

Saw 1 - Saw 7

They were OK, number 7 was a little underwhelming. The end was pretty obvious, and there could be an 8 :-?

127 Hours-8.5/10. Great movie. Aron Ralston's story is unbelievable. The fact that it is a true story really makes the movie incredible. The visual effects and Danny Boyle's methods of story telling are very cool too. James Franco did a great job. I don't think he'll win Best Actor, but he certainly has proven that he is much more than a comedic actor (Pineapple Express) or a shallow villain (Spiderman).

Worth seeing ;-D

Super Fly (1972) - 6/10
I have wanted to see this for about 15 years, and I came away from it with mixed emotions. The general 1970s vibe with the clothing and music and dialogue was awesome, but the way it was shot and edited was like a high school film project. Super super amateur and crappy. I wonder if they spent their whole budget on the music and clothes, and got some random dude off the street to direct.

Battle For The Planet Of The Apes (1973) - 6/10
Not as bad as I was lead to believe. If you watched the whole series expecting one ending, they sorta go another way, which was cool.

Restrepo - 7.5/10

I had a little higher expectations, but there are some solid moments in this. It moves at almost a blinding speed to start off with and is real hard to follow, but once things calm down a little and they start doing the scouting missions it is tremendous.

Machete - cheesy action movie is cheesy. bonus points for portraying an interesting way to conceal a cell phone. also was surprised to find myself thinking Michelle Rodriguez is way hotter than Jessica Alba
8/10
