Judge Dredd is a classic! It's a comic book made into a movie and it's great! If they had been going for a serious storyline it would have failed.

Battelfield Earth failed because they tried to make a serious movie...

I really enjoyed it and I doubt I would have picked it without a recommendation. I really like true stories that are uplifting about the human spirit. It was time well spent.
I'm glad you enjoyed Mao's Last Dancer. Thanks for your feedback!

We've been watching a lot of movies lately - a way to relax together and get healthy.

Last night it was "The Help". Oh my what a fantastic movie! I want to read the book now. The characterizations of the blacks and whites and the stark reality of the times were very well done.

Previously we saw:
The Tourist - I don't know what Rickie Gervais was talking about (of course I never do) on the Golden Globes, but I thoroughly enjoyed this. It was predictable in parts but also kept you thinking. Yes, it was fluff, but some times you need that.

The Green Lantern - This is one of the few comics I didn't read when I was younger. But I like Ryan Reynolds (a local guy ) and the effects were well done. We watched some of the features and those suits were actually CGI - not something from your average superhero movie!

The Girl Who Played With Fire - We are watching the original series of movies with subtitles and are thoroughly enjoying them. The let down in this one is the main characters don't really spend much time together and it was their chemistry that made the first film IMHO anyway.

Just finished bawling my eyes out over the last 15 minutes of Gran Torino, again! It's in the top 3 of my favorite Eastwood movies.

Loved The Help, especially since I lived it in a way. I was an early teen during that time period and my family had our "Juanita." She was an angel and, in short time, became a member of our family. You'll enjoy the book and I was pleased that the movie held pretty true to the book. Not always the case with movies based on books.

I, too, really liked The Tourist. Great film.

And, The Girl Who Played with Fire, fabulous. But, then, I really, really loved all three of the books in the series.

As for what we watched, well...turned out to be a waste of time. We viewed The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Fairly disjointed and, in our estimation, a mess of a movie. We felt it was a waste of good talent.

We watched that a couple nights ago. I had seen it in a theater in England, Kathleen had not seen it. My opinion didn't change but she had fun with it, so that's good.

Just saw Haywire this weekend. It was pretty good.
There were a few things that irritated me about the fight scenes that were unrealistic. But being a Martial Artist I am somewhat of a stickler
