hmgal, o brother and local hero are great flicks. the former has great music, and the latter great wit.

i watched "alpha dog" tonight. are there such things as movies which provide not redeeming value, and are potentially (probably actually) harmful and dangerous to young people?
this movie had childish values, both artistically and socially, and not in any way that could be counted as good. not even in contrast. bruce willis, sharon stone, and the rest of the cast should never win an award ever again just for being part of this trash.

I watched The Bucket List the other night, not a funny as I thought it would be, but a good movie.

We watched 28 weeks later. DW had to sleep with the light on until I came to bed. I thought is was OK, but nothing great.

I watched Jumper last night, it was pretty good IMO. I watched RAMBO earlier this week as well... definitely a RAMBO movie.

My daughter forced me to watch I Am Legend. I may never forgive her. Two thumbs way down. I hated that movie more than any other I've seen this year.

I watched Alpha Dog last night. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie. It was way better than I expected. I also did not know that it was a true story.

It was too loud and too vulgar for my wife though. They said the F word a few hundred times. That got old to her real quick.

wow, gb, see my "review" of it a few posts up.

imo, it was as if they asked a bunch of young guys what they'd like to do in a movie. get high, drink a lot, have sex, pretend to be tough, shoot some guns and get into fights.
it actually makes a little more sense if it was based on a true story, but still, i hope there's not too many young rich kids that will be influenced to act like that.

Well hopefully if those young rich kids do decide to stray they will have watched the movie to the end and see that it does not pay.

I went into this movie expecting it to be worse than horrible so maybe that expectation made me enjoy it more when it didn't completely suck. Did you go in expecting it to be good BT?

10,0000 BC, not a bad movie, I am not so sure they couldn't have worked it out so they didn't need the narration, and they got kinda weird with what apparently was supposed to be the Egyptian Pharaoh or something and that he had just descended from the sky or come from Atlantis with two others that were now dead.
Not that the idea of using Platos accounts as related from the Egyptian records isn't an interesting idea, I just think they weirded it out a little and left me wondering where the hunters tribe was actually located and what lands he actually crossed.. IE trying to match geography and history took away from the movie in this case IMHO.
