    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.

    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"?

    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.

    Last Watch. It was pretty good and surprisingly funny at times.

    I was digging some of the old movies on TCM until my nazi cable co yanked it out of the lineup last week. Time to switch to the other nazi cable co.

    The last movie I watched was Billy Budd (1962) with Peter Ustinov, Robert Ryan, and Terence Stamp.

    Side Effects - A good suspense/thriller based on current, and very relevant content.

    Just hooked up a Roku to use Netflix, and foresee cable co's future as bleak.

    Watched 'The Caine Mutiny' on late night cable yesterday. It is truly a great movie with great acting and character development. The ending does deviate from the book, but is still a great story.

    Man with the Iron Fists.

    It was alright. Nothing special, but worth watching once. Unless you don't like gore and blood, then watch something else.

    Good Will Hunting. Enjoyed it.

    Seven Psychopaths. Weird, but good. Movie ended w/ one impression. Next Day thought some... different Movie.

    Bourne Legacy. Not too interesting, not expecting another Bourne Movie.

    Watched "Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield " the other day on the free on-demand. It was worth what I paid for it.

    Actually it was OK, and kind of shocking at times. The crime scene photos at the start were as gruesome as any of the other new special effects in the film. It's really hard to top what that dude did in real life. They'd have been better off to forget trying to add dramatic elements with the Deputy's girl friend and mother though.

    The Hobbit

    It was ok, but definitely could have been better. I don't think they should have waited so long since the LOTR trilogy to make this, it had a completely different feel to it.

    FWIW The Hobbit is the starting of another Trilogy.
