The newer version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory--Willy Wonka played by Johnny Depp. I didn't like it as much as the original with Gene Wilder.

Depp is too wierd in this one.

VERY true and I love Johnny Depp. Couldn't even watch 30 minutes of it.


We watched I am Legend last night. I was surprisingly disappointed. Good graphics, but, if I had to watch someone alone, although I really like Will Smith in anything he does, I would rather be watching Cast Away with Tom Hanks.

The Bucket List and College Road Trip. I don't think I will be disappointed with The Bucket List.

I am glad to hear Get Smart was good. I loved the TV show, but the commercials for the movie looked horrible. I will give it a shot now based on the comments here.

We saw The Day The Earth Stood Still last night. We had free tickets to the IMAX and that is what they were showing. I went in with very low expectations as I had heard it was a horrible movie. I am glad my expectations were so low so that I was not disappointed. If you do not think about the movie at all then it was barely OK. If you put any thought into it at all then you will be disappointed. It was the perfect role for Keanu though, devoid of any emotion and almost no lines.

3000 Miles to Graceland

A bit on the graphic side but a good movie.

True That Lefty-I loved that movie!!

Got "Step Brothers" from Netflix this weekend. It was pretty predictable-Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly in their typical silliness. Funny if you have 90 minutes or so to kill. Doubt if I'd buy it though.

We watched Slow Burn the other night, pretty good flick lots of interesting twists to it. Other than that the wife has been spending most of her viewing time on IFC or Sundance watching movies.

The Bucket List is a remake of Griffin Loves Phoenix which I imagine is a much better movie. (I haven't seen The Bucket List, but most remakes are disappointing)

We saw Gran Torino (new film) last night. This film was written and directed by Clint Eastwood and he also starred in it. The ending was a big surprise. We enjoyed this film.
