Regarding 'The Wolfman' movie you are talking about, you're so right. Directors need to only use 3D for only the impossible scenes, like running, etc. but the close ups and transformations to the wolf with old school techniques like they did with 'American Werewolf in London'. So much more effective and convincing to the eye. They don't make them like they use to. Only a few directors are aware of this.

I have 'The Hurt Locker' to watch this weekend. What do you guys think about it before I start it? Heard it was great and a big fan of Kathryn Bigelow, the director.

I watched Sunshine Cleaning with the girlfriend. It was surprisingly depressing, and decently enjoyable. Emily Blunt was kinda hot in the movie.

6/10

Sweet. Can't wait. I just watched the trailer again. Looks like something I'd like. Got it on blu-ray as well.

Saw it yesterday. Pretty good, although not the best war movie out there. But, it wasn't lacking or over the top.

It's not the best war film EVER, no, but it's definitely the best war film to come out since SPR.

Just finished up Lonesome Jim. Starring Casey Affleck and Liv Tyler. Affleck's a 20 something who runs out of money and has nowhere else to go but back home to the heartbeat of America that is the Goshen, Indiana cornfields. I was, for obvious reasons, smitten from the get go. I'm sure a good number of us could identify with Affleck's meandering existence and unrealized goals. The dynamic between Affleck and his brother (the always underrated Kevin Corrigan) is as true to life for me as the landscape and lifestyle, all the way through the pretty superficial relationship with his mother until the whole outliving your own naivete realization. Liv Tyler's the love interest, and their relationship plays a major role in the movie but it was an afterthought for me given all the other similarities to my own life, I've got that uncle that wants me to help him in his shady dealings, I've literally been in a few of those exact bars. It's every bit as hopeless and at the same time it's that this is home and that's why I love it vibe. I've really never seen a flick capture small town Indiana in such a true to life way for all us helpless souls.
