How was: Resident Evil: Afterlife? On par with the others?

We went to the movies on this cold rainy day, and saw "The King's Speech". We both thought it was Oscar winning, with spontaneous applause from the whole theater at the end. Very well done.

Mostly, though it felt cheaper.

I enjoy the story line. I'll probably wait for it to come out on Cable.

They made a 70's version?? I know there was one made in the 90's I believe it was...it was alright - I say that because I have read the book, &, IMO, it just cannot be matched in cinema as far as how moving the read was. Just wondering how the 70's version was though?

My last movie that I watched was Salt.

I will say this to any who are interested in a FANTASTIC movie..."How To Train Your Dragon". It's no little "kiddie" movie either, so, check your age in at the door. No $$$ wasted on that flick.

Where the Red Fern Grows (1974) - IMDb It was good, but not as good as the book.

We LOVED "How to Train Your Dragon!"

I STILL hear Hiccups voice in my head! We saw it in the theater, &, HAD to get it on DVD. THEN, went a step further, & began reading the book series. The books don't match the movie much at all(in the books, toothless is the size of a chiuahua?sp?), but, they are done in such a way that you just don't care, because they are so well written, &, hilarious too actually. I give them 2 thumbs up too!
Another "goodie" in my goody box was Kung Fu Panda....I may be a bit obssesed w/Disney though too..LOL

We just finished watching "Dodge ball" again for the umpteenth time. I still like it after all these times.
