I really want to see that movie.  I've been waiting and waiting and I'm going to wait some more until I can see it for as free as possible.

Oh, almost forgot.  Saw American Gangster the other day and it was really, really good.  A must see.  Even if the beginning was suck-tastic (it was sooooooo confusing).  Everything after the first 10-15 minutes was golden.  Another rent though.  Not sure if I'd want to buy it.  I know you must see it.

Just rented and saw Forbidden Kingdom with Jet Li and Jackie Chan...  Don't bother unless you're one of two things... A die-hard fan of Jackie or Jet... or an old school kung-fu movie fan.

Just terrible story... the main character bit. Jet Li and Jackie Chan were never known for their acting "skillz".

The martial arts choreography was good, but the wire-fu could have been better. The two leading ladies were pretty good eye-candy IMHO.  : )

Anyways, there's my $0.02

watched kidulthood, and dangerous parking..

kidulthood was pretty good, would have been better if i had not already seen Kids.

dangerous parking starts off as a crazy, fear and loathing sorta comedy and turns into a chick flick.. otherwise its decent.

both movies mad contributions to my collection of quotes and witticisms, from kidulthood there is DV and from dangerous parking 'sense of tumor'

Really?  I had high hopes for that one.

Has anyone seen Pineapple Express yet?  I haven't heard much about it after the release.

If you are refering to me, I just found that it gave you no reason to watch on, and the two most hatable characters survive

No it isn't.

I think my favorite movie I saw this year was 'Tell No One.' It's French, but surprisingly great considering their film industry. I might even say it was the best film I saw this year, and I just watched 'Zebra Man' and 'The Adventures of Barn Mancheusan' last night. The only down-side to Tell No One is that I don't believe it's 'out' yet (not to say you can't download it somewhere) and it will only be playing in theaters that carry obscure releases.

Yes. Yes it did.

I didn't really care about Burn After Reading too much, but I don't think you can say it's bad.

Not scary so much as brutally bleak and dehumanizing...
