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.

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?

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.

Lawless on Bluray, that's one more on my damn good movies list.
Lincoln.......outstanding from all angles. If your a history buff this will stir the soul even deeper.

If you love history, I think this movie is a fantastic depiction.
wreck it ralph, it was surprisingly good
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.
Eat your veggies
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...
it was good, visually it was crazy. the detail was amazing

I really want to see the Hobbit. I have to wait.
Last movie I watched here at home was Transformers Dark Of The Moon.
I like the new bond
