    Name the last movie you watched

    I saw Argo and liked it a lot more than I expected to: even though I knew it ended well, it had me on the edge of my seat a few times.

    There are a couple of spots where they definitely overdid the "swelling strings, you're supposed to get this point right now" bit, but other than that, very well made.

    Actors were all good (and it was interesting at the end to see pictures of the actors selected vs pictures of the people they were playing; they did a good job with that). And Alan Arkin was terrific in his role.

    The Ambassador was available for instant streaming on Netflix. Great documentary showing how the rich and political elite can legally get blood diamonds out of Africa. Pretty funny at the same time, reminded me a lot of Sacha Baron Cohen guerilla comedy.

    Started Ted but didnt even make it halfway through before turning it off. Had low hopes for it but heard it was great, pretty dumb movie overall.

    Did you also see Zero Dark Thirty? I haven't seen neither and can't decide which to see, if I were to only see one.

    Zero dark 30. No contest. I found Argo undeserving of all accolades it received. The only person more surprised than me was Ben Affleck. There are much better movies out there.

    "Stand up guys". One of those movies where every time I start to say something about it, I think of something else in it to change my mind. Some of the scripting was stale, but I think all in all it gets to the point of what being "stand-up" means and that you don't have to be a gangster to live that way.

    Also, there are no yelling fits out of Pacino, so it's got that going for it.
    But if you close your eyes it becomes so easy to see

    Thanks, Oggie. I'm not a Ben Affleck fan although I love his wing man, Matt.

    Two movies that I liked a lot were Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Run Lola Run. The French, La Femme Nikita was also fun.

    I haven't seen Zero Dark Thirty either. I'll probably see Zero Dark Thirty eventually to see how it compares to Katherine Bigalow's early film Hurt Locker.

    Name the last movie you watched

    Pocahontas last night with the kids.

    How come though the name always makes me think of "poke a your highness"?

    It's a musical and I don't like musicals lol. Wasn't bad at all. A couple cameos in there too.

    Looper. I don't know what the heck was going on... the Movie tried too much to have a 'Buddha-mentality' which turned clownish. Actors were fine, story - not fine.

    Savages. Pretty vicious.
    I went into Looper thinking it was going to be ridiculous and bad but I ended up being surprised by how good it was. I thought it was a top 20 movie of 2012

    Agree with everything you said... I would def see Zero Dark. I think Argo is very over rated, it's a good movie too, but I don't think it's deserving of all the Oscar nom's its getting.

    I just watched Perks of Being A Wallflower, even though it was a little different I thought it was a really good movie all the way through. Way better than I expected it to be.
