    I was looking forward to Shooter because of the participation of Stephen Hunter, a real gun fan, in the film. I see a comment that Hollywood made PC incursions on the film. Sorry to hear that.

    I've seen over 740 movies at the theatre (NOT including repeats) since 6/87 and keep them on a spreadsheet. They all tend to run together as I get older.

    Several 'recent' favs include BIG FISH and MOMENTO.

    Looking forward to catching SHOOTER and SMOKIN' ACES when ACES hits DVD.

    Next time you watch Memento program your DVD to play the scenes in reverse order, I think there is an Easter Egg that lets you do this automatically, what you get is the story in real chronological time.

    Memento is one of the best movies of the past 10 years.

    I dont see movies I have hearing loss where theater conditions basicly make me deaf to dialog , even on the puter i wear headphones to hear the spoken word . Tv i bacily watch news chanels , and read the ticker to know what is going on .

    I wish i could blame it on firearms , but most likely its too many years of heavy equipment without hearing protection ( includeing farm and ranch )

    300 is one of the best movies I have ever seen.

    Casino Royale is one of the top Bond movies, thankfully they didn't feel the need to cram it full of stupid gadgets.

    Rocky Balboa was also pretty good.

    We get movies sent to the house, I've seen a lot of 'em. I cant ever remember movie names or who was in them. I think thats my ADHD kicking in. I have to ask my wife what movies I've seen. I did see casino royale, I liked it.
    Sometimes I wonder why I bought the movie theater set up for the house. Oh yeah, I remember now; She wanted it.

    I'll second that on Balboa. I just watched it myself. Movies are great, but I usually wait until they come out on DVD. I bought a digital projector and surround sound for a reason....All the theater experience, minus the annoying kids yelling and throwing popcorn (I prefer to be the one doing the throwing thanks). Not to mention how much it costs these days. Can't even buy popcorn for less than $7 or $8 or so I hear.

    I tend to rarely see films in theatres, save when an exceptional item comes along. Yeah, the price could choke a horse. $6.75 at the cheapie matinee, or nearing $10 regularly; plus the fleecing rates at the sugar+fat line. Pass.

    A few recent films (though not in theatres):

    • The Man In The White Suit, Alec Guinness, 1952 Ealing Studios. Fantastic.
    • Cars (animated). Amazingly lively characters, plus the nostalgic look at Route 66 and not letting the good things pass you by.
    • Grosse Pointe Blank, John Cusack & Dan Aykroyd, comedy.
    • A Shock To the System, Michael Caine, comedy.
    • Bridge On The River Kwai, Alec Guiness. A classic.
    • The Simple Life Of Noah Dearborn, Sidney Poitier. Hopefully not Poitier's last. Excellent feel-good film, but of Poitier's typical high-quality.
    • Lilies Of The Field, Sydney Poitier & Lilia Scala. One of the best films of the early 1960's, IMO; certainly, of his career.
    • Open Range, Robert Duvall, Kevin Costner & Michael Jeter. A classic western. Didn't make a dime in the theatres, I hear, but it's excellent. A simple but poignant story about standing your ground when provoked and attacked. Asks the serious question: what are you prepared to do, for your life and the lives of those you love?
    • Wind, Matthew Modine & Jennifer Gray. About racing 12M yachts for the Cup.
    • The Majestic, Jim Carrey & Martin Landau. Excellent drama/comedy. Not your typical Jim Carrey fare.
    • Mindwalk, John Heard & Sam Waterston. A bit of mental exercise by three acquaintances discussing what moves them about life.

    The fight scene between John Cusak and Benny "The Jet" Urquidez was phenomenal. I read somewhere that Cusak is actually into the martial arts.

    Wild Hogs!!

    Afew Saturdays ago, the wife drug me to the movie house; first time in over 25 years, to see, "Wild Hogs" with Tim Allen, John Travolta and others. From the opening scenes to the last, I laughed till tears were rolling out. Funniest movie I have seen in many a moon. Rated PG and only foul word I heard was "S$it" acouple of times, otherwise no "F-bombs" like most movies out now. I highly recommend it. At the end, dont just jump up and leave, as some of the best stuff is at the credit lists.

    I have been itching to see "Zodiac", as I am a serious fan of that true crime case, but a respiratory infection kept me home this weekend. I re-watched "Fargo" for the first time in 4-5 years and enjoyed it as much as the first time. BTW, the Zodiac movie is getting rave reviews from fans and critics.

    Casino Royale was great.
    300 was fantastic.
    Children of Men - 4 out of 4 stars.
    Pan's Labyrinth - At least 7 out of 4 stars.

    Edmond was good, especially if you like Mamet.

    I saw 300 recently and it has surpassed Heat as my favorite movie. I don't make it to the movies much either, too busy with school,work, and getting ready for the police academy.

    Though I thought Batman Begins was the best batman. Miami Vice was good. I look forward to renting Casino Royale, Children of Men, and a few others some time soon. The new Transformers movie and Spiderman 3 look like they might be pretty big box office hits.

    Wally World finally got Predator 2 back in stock, been out since October'ish. Acting is cheezy and gun handleing sucks, but the predator costum/race is my favorite sci-fi franchise.
    Yeah I like Glocks, wanna fight about it!
