Wife and I saw Argo this afternoon. Definitly worth the price of a seniors/matinee. This could be in the running for the title "good movie" and end the three year drought mentioned here a while back.

So...yeah, a two thumbs up for Argo. I'd fogotten the event of the 6 people rescued. Too busy looking for an open gas station or a short waiting line at that time.

I watched BRANDED last night, I looked forward to wacting it based on the trailer... The trailor was much better... It was short and lacked everything that made the movie lousy.

saw looper.... good movie but they added an aspect that I thought cheapened the whole thing and it was totally unnessasary, still a good movie though.

Joseph Gordon Levitt did an AMaZING job of playing a young Bruce Willis... unreal!

Watched Prometheus on DVD this afternoon. Originally saw the 3D version at the theater in June ($6 senior matinee ).

Don't quite understand the divide for this movie, it sure beats the blatant CGI stuff they offer in most of the SciFi these days. I'll put it right up there near the original `Alien'. And, having seen `Lawrence of Arabia' when it first came out, kind of helps the plot, for me, as well.

The DVD included several deleted scenes and out-takes that I would have used in place of about 30 minutes of scenes that were used, such as every scene with the two annoying lost geologists in them, but all movies can be criticized in one way or another.

All in all, I enjoyed it The visuals and soundtrack are first rate!

Atlas Shrugged Part II is a winner.

Saw it today, and it's much better focused than Part I and does (I think) a better job of representing what Rand was trying to get across without proselytizing. It just showed "what is".
It showed very accurately the oppressive attitude of government over private business and individuals and it's hard not to notice how relevant it is today.

As for the production itself, it's much faster paced than Part I, and it's action sequences right from the opening scene keep your attention throughout.
While the cast has been replaced from the original in Part I, you not only don't notice it, but I think I preferred the players in this one even better starting with the lead role of Dagney Taggert played now by Samantha Mathis who I think does a better job as Dagney.

While I liked Part I a lot, Part II is an almost James Bondish kind of movie with a quickly developing story line and enough intrigue to keep anyone interested, even Ayn Rand haters.

Considering the ending scene of Part II, Part III is going to be a real ride.

For me Atlas Shrugged is a 120 mile round trip to see this flick, I have located a BBQ house close by so I am making an evening of it. I think I'll take the cute blonde like last time. The wife is ok with it.

Just back from "FrankenWenie" good for a matinee giggle. They captured the spirit of the B&

Hope Springs was a good little movie. You can't miss with Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Sreep.

Here Comes the Boom. Kevin James is a funny guy. A nice feel good movie.

Seven Psychopaths. Really strange, but entertaining. A dark comedy for sure.

My wife wants to see Frankenweenie, which is a surprize as she usually hates animated movies.
