So, people that like the Terminator flicks have no class?

By the way, i'm sure you know he isn't the first bad actor to become governor of Cal. One even went on to become president.


No, *classier* as in "classier" (quote fingers). Maybe it's less of a class thing (as there are a lot of stupid and popular flicks/shows that people love) so much as "the first movie premiered before we were born." It's the same thing I run into when I admit that I love Back To The Future - no one's seen it. No, I don't know what it is. I just have a lot of friends who've never seen it and so don't share my interest.

Oh Reagan... Arnold can't follow in his footsteps, though.

Juno <3 I liked it better the second time, actually. The first time I was a little disappointed because I had heard all the hype about how amazing it was, and you're right, it was good but not great.

I want to see Sweeney Todd at some point..

Thats how it was with me. I was expecting something really great from Juno, so i was a little disappointed. I may see it again at some point down the line and maybe i'll like it better the second time around.

About Sweeney Todd: Prepare yourself for Depp singing. I wasn't and i almost couldn't get past that, but i'm glad i stuck with it.

I didn't think he was bad at all. I really enjoyed Sweeney Todd. That'll be the next add on my Netflix queue.

I thought Juno was well done and very very awkward.

I didn't think his singing was bad. I just don't see him as a singer so it was a bit weird for me.

The first two Terminator movies were excellent sci-fi action movies. No shame in liking them.

I agree. I even [mildly] enjoyed the 3rd movie - I just had to pretend the first two hadn't happened and that it wasn't ripping off everything that had happened before, heh. The first two were good, for sure.

But to people who've never seen the movies and have only heard the catchphrases and only know of Arnold as an accented bodybuilder, the whole franchise must sound silly..

Surely people like that don't exist, do they? He has made so many movies since his Pumping Iron days. There were the Conan flicks. Predator. Commando. True Lies. he has a long list of credits to his name.

Granted, I must have been 10 when I saw it. I thought it was really funny at the time to watch the Terminator be a silly father.

I saw Cloverfield yesterday. I really liked the movie, until it got to the ending. Ending is an overstatement, though. There was no ending. The movie just stopped.

I enjoyed Cloverfield, but I grew up on a diet of classic monster movies. A good monster movie doesn't really have a solid ending, or if it does, it ends with "The End" followed by a question mark. Example: The Blob ;)


I suspect we'll see some kind of sequel on Cloverfield.

I really think they sacrificed a good ending for a potential sequel, but i'm sure there will be a sequel. [spoiler]I was also kind of bummed to see Lizzy Caplans character die off, but they couldn't all live. Did they all die except lily? Did rob and beth survive the explosions? I want answers![/spoiler]

So I saw Cloverfield last night. I liked it.

I believe there CAN be a sequel. Jason and Freddy taught me that. There can always be a sequel.

I thought it was ok once i got past the fact that he actually sings. Took some getting used to. I'm also not so sure i'd call him a genius. He's an actor, and a good one, but it'd be a stretch to call him a genius, unless of course, he has a really high IQ. :)

No Country For Old Men

It was a good movie, but it was strange seeing my bank's building and the other skyscraper next to it in the background and realizing that at least part of that movie was filmed within about a mile of my home.

And then I realized that was probably the reason my sister waited on Tommy Lee Jones about two years ago, and that was really strange too.

I really liked that movie. In fact, i own it. Good flick.


In the last few days, i watched Over Her dead Body and First Sunday. They were both worth seeing but probably not purchase worthy.
