Seen any good movies lately?

Postby destros_elite on Fri Jun 18, 2010 2:25 pm

Now I don't get to the movies nearly as much as I would like to, but in the summertime I try to hit the theater a few more times than I normally do.
So far I've managed to see Iron Man II (Very good movie), Robin Hood (Loved it!), and Shrek 4 (A very fun movie!).
Has anyone else watched any good movies lately? I'd love to hear about it. Might even save me a buck or two by saving me from seeing a terrible movie.

Haven't been to one since Iron Man II. I reaaaallllly want to see Toy Story 3 though.

Saw "Dear John" with my wife and I actually really liked it. Very surprised by it.

I too saw iron man II but before that i have no idea what i saw last, maybe ROC and that STUNK so hard imo.

I do the netflix thing. Recently rewatched wraith of kahn of all things. held up to childhood memories well.

Sum of all Fears was pretty good, watched it recently too. I read rainbow six and really dig the Tom Clancy world now. i don't have time to read a ton of his books so I thought i'd quickly check out the movies.

As a Father's Day treat, I took my daughter to see Toy Story 3 in 3D last Saturday. A little more pricey than I wanted, but having Melanie lean against my arm, look up at me during the movie and say "I love you, Daddy" made it worth a gazzillion bucks! :D

It really is an EXCELLENT movie. I give it two Dave Thumbs Up!

Who knows? Maybe it is in the Lord's plan for you to be celebrated next Father's Day? :D

I'm hoping to see Airbender tonight. The previews look great, which can be quite deceiving sometimes. Hopefully the story will match the great special effects.

No, I didn't but I heard and still hear great things about it. I noticed that Cartoon Network is showing it. Have you watched it? Is it worth checking out the cartoon?

I need to check that out. Think there was a thread about it here on the board at one point.
I know Denzel Washington is the star, but I think Gary Oldmen is a great actor! Especially when he plays the bady. :twisted:

The last few I've watched were Tron Legacy (Loved it!), I am No. 4 (Fun movie if you just sit back and enjoy it), and Yogi Bear (Very cute, clean movie...of course going with your daughter makes every movie good! :D ).

Possible spoiler: Has Gary Oldman ever lived through a movie?

Single movie? I guess you could say Prisoner of Azkaban (though he dies in the Order of the Phoenix...so this may not count).

5th Element? Nope.
Air Force One? Nope.
Hmmm...
