Just saw it for the first time and the visuals were obviously amazing. The storyline was still very good. I don't care that it wasn't original and groundbreaking because it kept me very engaged and interested the entire time.

88/100

Finally got around to seeing Terminator Salvation.

It was pretty close to what I expected. The action was decent at times, but it felt directionless and all the characters and performances sucked.

Iron Man 2

6.5/10

Pretty god special f/x....Scarlett Johanssen [sp] is always a plus and Sam Jack did his usual--yelling at people.

but the story wasn't so great and there could have been more action.

I'd assume you leave them out.

just saw 2 movies over the weekend.

The imaginarium of Dr. Parnisus (sp?)
kept me engaged throughout the course of the story and was a neat mix of whimsy and grit. It didnt have any scenes that were too draggy, but some of the connections you were supposed to catch were a little to subtle. overall a very entertaining movie
7.5/10

Boondock saints II
This shit was a sham compared to the original. The mexican romeo was the live action equivalent of jar jar bings. THey tried way too hard to parallel the first ("there was a fire fight" vs. " there was a good old shoot-em-up!") and the acting was just terrible. My wife said halfway though, "its too bad guy ritchie didnt direct these movies" and I agree. The unison lines by the brothers and the dead eye-tie were incredibly cheesy and the whole movie reeked of cheap knock off to make some $.

overall, very poor. 2.5/10

Going to the theaters this weekend reminded me once again that I should just wait till the movie hits the DVD shelves and save my money. What garbage out there.

Very true. I hardly ever rate movies less than 5/10 because I only choose movies I've heard something good about usually.

i saw the lives of others yesterday, i know im way late.
10/10. no need to explain really, if youve seen it you know. one of the best and most rewarding narrative based films ive seen of the decade. Ulrich Mühe was phenomenal also.
