I was pleasantly surprised by how good the new A-Team movie was. Good, entertaining summer action flick.

I dont know. I read the book. I am not a fan of our government and the book did not make me feel any better about it. Actually it just enforced a lot of my anti government feelings.I am not sure I will see this. It may be good for some folks to see but I think it will just piss me off more.

Toy Story 3 was very very very good. It was also very emotional I had a headache from holding back my sobs and crying. Embarassed
Damn those toys get me every movie. Crying or Very sad

To this day I cant watch any other movie with that lady in it because of what she did to James Caans ankles in that movie. Shocked

Just back from seeing The Last Airbender with my kids. We are big fans of the animated series; and despite the almost universally bad reviews, we all enjoyed ourselves; and hope that the sequel will get made...

The Girl Who Played with Fire will be screening at the Camelview 5 starting this weekend. This the follow up movie to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

I recommend Despicable Me if you have kids. It is one of those kid movies that throws enough at the adults to keep us entertained. If you dont have kids I would skip it. There was quite a few Laughing moments but enough to see it unless you have to.

I have absolutely NO desire to ever see The Last Airbender nor anything else that M. Night Shyalaman ever directs/writes. The following explains this succinctly:

Evolution of a M. Night Shyalaman fanboy

The "new Hitchcock", if he exists, certainly isn't Shyamalan. I think the closest thing right now to a present day Hitchcock would be Chris Nolan. He's the one guy that Hollywood is allowing to use a big budget on his original ideas. I'm really looking forward to seeing if he can pull off Inception.

Not to call him the next 'Hitchcock' since he doesn't dabble in any genre close, but Charlie Kaufman is continuing to do amazing, unique things with his films. Synecdoche, Eternal Sunshine, Adaptation, Being John Malkovich...

Inception was very good. I really enjoyed the ride. The effects were excellent, as expected, and there were a few jaw-dropping moments. That's what you want out of a summer blockbuster. The acting was overall very good, but I was surprised that it was the intricate story telling that let it down a little for me. It wasn't on par with Memento, for sure, but still a good story. One of the great fight sequences in recent memory. Definitely recommend it - and you may need to see it twice to "get" the whole story.

Number of movie critics friends are favorable to Inception... and see that it has 85% approval rating at RottenTomatoes with over 200 published reviews. So will have to check this out.

I enjoyed it quite a bit. I usually avoid big special effects movies but I really liked some of the other movies from this director. I loved Memento. Story was really good and I really want to check it out again. It is one of those movies/stories that I think multiple views will be good.

Is this your criteria on when to see a movie? I dont really trust critics opinions much. I happen to agree this is a very good flick especially when compared to the typical movie garbage that seems to be repeatedly put out there. I went to see it based on the directors previous works which I enjoyed.

Depends.... If it's a director that I like, I'll see a film regardless. If it's a film that is playing at the Camelview 5 that looks intriguing, I'll likely see it. If I decided to write up a review on a film, I'd rather do so on the more obscure films that fewer people see anyway.

Mainstream films I don't usually rush to see (they will be around for a while if any good, and the crowds will be smaller if you don't rush to see them opening weekend). It's not that I "trust" all critics... but if I see an overwhelming negative critical response (like the one to M. Night Shyalaman's latest bomb), then I do NOT want to waste time and money on that kind of garbage.

Some of the more intriguing films are the ones with mixed reviews w/ critics either loving or hating it--those are ones I'll likely check out.

Life is too short to waste on bad movies (esp. when I'm almost as old as Stu), so getting some feedback from critics is useful.

My wife and I rented "A Single Man" with Colin Firth playing a professor who just lost his long-time partner. Firth is quite good in the movie, especially given how much acting he does without even speaking. Kind of a downer of a movie, but well made and engaging.
