    Saw Life of Pi in 3D yesterday. Ang Lee did a nice job with it. I thought he captured the essence of the book, that's not easy to do.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    I totally agree. I was a bit skeptical before I saw it yesterday. The movie actually bridged some things that I missed in the book.

    Lincoln.

    My wife and I had free movie tickets so we went. There must've been a class assignment because the place was FILLED with highschool kids. Loud, obnoxious highschool kids. Which up'd my annoyance level to 8.

    Then, some girl spent the entire time texting to my right, so I was bothered by the screen lighting up. Annoyance level 9.

    THEN, two Asian women came stomping in 1:20 into the movie, and one started coughing up her SARS next to us. Annoyance level 10.

    When Lincoln died (spoiler alert), some lady in the bottom rows started crying hysterically. WTF?

    I am a huge film nerd, but I hate going to movie theaters. God forbid you go to a popular movie, like Batman... then you have ghetto-ass people talking, texting, making noise. etc. I really appreciate the ghetto parents who bring their babies and toddlers to 11:00pm horror movies, and then they cry throughout the entire thing.

    I told my wife, unless we go during senior citizen time (10:00am Sunday morning), we are NOT going to a theater showing. Ever.

    Best part for me, I read the book so long ago that I knew the outline but had forgotten some of the details. Some of the scenes brought back some good feelings about the book/story. I might have to read it again. Not many times does a movie do that for me. Most of the times I walk out of a movie where I've read the book beforehand thinking WTF? Why did they do that to this great story?

    I though Suraj Sharma, young Pi, and Irrfan Khan, adult Pi, did great performances but Richard Parker was my favorite. Could you imagine having Richard Parker looking at you like you are a warm meal?

    That sucks. I usually to to early showings just for those reasons, and I'm cheap. It's too bad because I've heard Lincoln is a great movie.

    Watched the newest Spiderman, not sure if I like how they spun it (no pun intended). Definitely like it more than previous versions.

    THIS!

    My wife said it was boring (she even fell asleep twice), but I friggin' love history, talking history, teaching history, etc. And, since I work for a Fraternal Benefit Society, founded in 1882, as well as being a member of E Clampus Vitus, history is totally my thing.

    If you love history, I think this movie is a fantastic depiction.

    Would it be appropriate for a 5 year old?

    Yep, just watched it. Better then I thought it would be. Some of the finest gore scenes I have watched in awhile. Nice

    How to Train your Dragon..not the last movie I saw but it was on the tv the other day, and I was shocked at how much I liked it. (I'm usually not into animated movies)

    War Horse, not bad, but not great. Most likely
    made for a younger group than me.

    Skyfall. It reminded me of bits of Starwars, Indiana Jones and others, especially the end game at thehouse. I still like the glitzier Bond movies I guess.

    What did you think of the Hobbit Cyclelicious? I have heard mixed reports, and especially about shooting it in the higher frame rate.

    Lawless. Saw it last week. **** was RAW!
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    I really want to see the Hobbit. I have to wait.

    Last movie I watched here at home was Transformers Dark Of The Moon.
