Original or remake?

I just finished watching You Don't Mess With The Zohan.

I thought it was pretty funny.

Humboldt County, and it was fantastic. It had a Garden State/The Go-Getter feel to it.
The visuals don't hold up.

I really enjoyed the ending credit's sequence. The movie it self was pretty good too - 3.7/5.

To Kill a Mockingbird. Classic.

Next is An Affair to Remember and something yet to be determined off AFI's hundred list tomorrow night.

Crimson Rivers 2

Pierre Niemans faces the threat of the apocalypse while investigating a series of ritual murders.


Very good, like the first one. You should watch them both. In the original French with subtitles.

I pre-ordered a copy when it was finally released on DVD a few years ago.

I don't normally watch that many movies, but since I became temporarily handicapped and had to withdraw from school for the semester, I've had too much time on my hands and have watched movies to keep me occupied.

American Graffiti was the last one I saw, but I didn't watch the whole thing because I didn't like it and saw no reason to keep watching it.

The most recent movie that I've seen and really liked a lot was Amazing Grace. It was about a man named William Wilburforce and his efforts with others to end the English slave trade. It was NOT a documentary. Did you know that the song Amazing Grace was written by a former owner of a British slave ship?

Movie was awful after the first 20 minutes :P

So bad I couldn't bring myself to read it even though I wanted to.

Yeah, the kids were better than the adults. I think I'd only be interested in the first part of Beaches, too.

I don't know anyone that didn't love American Graffiti, but we're from different generations. I even remember listening to Wolfman Jack on the radio when i was little.

They used to hold Graffiti Night every year in Modesto where everyone would cruise up and down McHenry in Modesto, but i don't think they've done it in a while. I went a few times. It was a good reason to party.

The book is definitely worth reading, which makes the movie even more disappointing.

You do now. I hated that thing.

Oh yeah. the last movie I saw in theater was The Dark Knight, which was great even though there was a lot going on. Thanks to the bike fall though, I'll never get to see it in IMAX.

I just watched Ironman. It was good, but i was expecting a lot more action and it closely resembled Robocop, imo.

super hero origins movies generally dont have enough action, then the 2nd movie has too much.

Personally I think Ironman has been the best super hero movie out in a long time, I'm torn to specifically rank batman begins higher because he played such a good tony stark.

From Dusk Till Dawn
Hooray for Halloween movies!
This one is a real ride!
It is a little schizophrenic, tho.
The parts Tarintino wrote are kind of heavy, and the parts Rodriguez does are almost cartoonish.

Selma Hayek erotic dancing with a huge snake. My God, man! What more do you need?

still one of the funniest movies I've seen; up there with Mouse Hunt, Bewitched (the original series), and the I Love Lucy series.
