Watched "Godzilla" last night, the newest one. Disappointing, poorly filmed and disjointed storyline.

Glad to hear it is a good one!

I won't be spending that amount of $$ on snacks though, that's for sure!
Nothing like Scott Peterson Cheryl! Boy what a true drama that was!
The acting in this is on a fast track for Oscars imo.

Glad you liked it as much as I did Katie. I SOOO agree that it needs to be seen on the big screen. Steve and I cruised that beautiful river in the background. Awesome.

I'm a sucker for chick flicks. Watched 'The Giant Mechanical Man' on Netflix.

Believe me, I've seen shorter movies that seemed a lot longer than 2 1/2 hrs. I didn't even notice the time.

dw and my boy saw that in the theatres a while back and liked it. maybe it's one of those m9vies that only works on a giant screen with speakers that make your clothing buzz.

i watched "riddick" (the sequel with vin diesel), "leap year" with amy adams, and "solomon kane" with a bunch of unkown actors.

"riddick" could have been interestig but they just sort of ended the story with too many loose ends and no good reasoning.

"solomon kane" was ok. not bad for an obscure netflix movie. i've seen worse there.

i really liked "leap year", but then again i like amy adams. they could have gotten a better looking leading man for her counterpart in the movie instead of a skinny guy with a bad haircut and who can't grow a beard.

I saw "Gone Girl" at the matinee this afternoon. WOW!!! What a great movie! I'm tempted to say more, but won't.

Ohhh I'm so glad you saw it Cheryl! I know, for fear of spoiling it for others I'll PM you!
Disclaimer ... "Gone Girl" is a shocking psychological thriller, not for the weak of heart or mind.

Without giving anything away, I liked Rolling Stone's review of "Gone Girl"...pretty much sums it up, IMO.

".....what you can know is that Gone Girl has the impact of a body-slam, hitting home in every scary, suspenseful, seductive particular. It's a movie inferno with combustible performances. Affleck is terrific, undermining his good looks to suggest the soulless shallows that define Nick. For Pike, a Brit best known for supporting roles (Pride & Prejudice, An Education), this is a smashing, award-caliber breakthrough you'll be talking about for years....."
