Went to the new mega theatre Thursday night to see Gravity in 3D it was pretty good, the 3D made it worth it. Pretty cool when you are sitting in a theatre and you have to duck to avoid space debris and tear drops just float in front of your face ;) yes this movie works best in 3 D.

We saw "Captain Phillips" last night. Loved it. Very suspenseful, even though we know the outcome.

Watched "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" last night. I'm usually not a fan of French subtitles, but the movie was fascinating.

How did you understand the movie if the subtitles were in French?

I saw a movie yesterday on Netflix called Assault on Wall Street. I thought it would be an action movie, but nothing really happened until the end. It was good. Considering first billed were two unknowns followed up with Ed Furlong, Clint Howard and Michael Pare, that really surprised me.

Good catch, Pac! I (ahem) meant the film was in French, with English subtitles....

Took 4 years of French, probably understood every 500th word.

We watched Pacific Rim and Gatsby last night.

Pacific Rim looked good, watch it with the sound off. Sheesh...

Gatsby was okish.

Pacific Rim sounds like it would be the movie to watch with complete surround sound at 3:30 am... Be an alternate for any of the last 3 Star Wars...

We went to the Imax yesterday with BIL and his ex and saw Hunger Games. OMG, it was LOUD! The movie followed the book very closely, but the book wasn't nearly as LOUD!

I really want to see Pacific Rim, but I will not go to see it in IMax.....my eardrums would never recover!

In the middle of the night, I watched "Going My Way" with Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald. At the end they bring in the mother of the old priest. A real tear jerker.
