6% on RT. I always look a movie up on there beforehand. If it's below a 30% I generally won't bother with it.

Yeah, I just stumbled across it and gave it a shot. 3/10 is being very generous.

I feel like 90% of the movies on Netflix instant watch are terrible.

Casanova - 5/10

Too bad about Heath Ledger, he was pretty damn versatile. This is the first time I didn't find Sienna Miller attractive. I usually like redheads, too

Warrior: Incomplete

I wasn't really sure what it was about when I rented it, but it was more of a drama then I expected (which I wasn't in the mood for) so I had to shut it off about 40 minutes into it.

Did anyone else watch it yet?

Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows
--Really well done sequel. RDJ and Law had excellent chemistry, the action scenes were really well done, and there were a ton of great moments. The guy playing Moriarty was chilling and nailed the role. A little long, but enjoyable. 8/10

The Green Lantern
--Not good. Had a lot of potential. Reynolds can be really good when he's got a decent script to work with.. I liked the setup and found myself enjoying the film at times. Just couldn't get in and stay with it. Ended super abruptly. Meh. 5/10

Captain America
--Loved this film. I've been a big fan of Chris Evans for awhile now (he was amazing in Sunshine) so I was happy to see him working a big role with a good script. Tommy Lee Jones was really enjoyable in his role and Hugo Weaving is always good. Loved the story, loved how it was shot, loved everything about it. Thought the ending was a lil sudden but I'm OK with that. 8/10

And I'm watching Super 8 tonight. I've already seen it and really liked it.

Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol

7.5/10

Really entertaining. Non-stop action, not the mind numbing kind either, it's intense and you feel engaged throughout. Certain things bothered me (too "light" at times), but overall the movie got what it set out to achieve. The action scenes were amazing. If the last half an hour or so was better I'd have given it an 8+. I'd say it's probably the best action flick I've seen since Casino Royale. Only regret is not seeing it in IMAX.

Despicable Me: 8/10. It was quirky and pretty entertaining. Good for a kids movie.

Colombiano

8/10

Pretty bad ass. Zoe Saldana is also extremely beautiful throughout the movie.

If you haven't seen Sin Nombre on there, you should check that one out. It's a good one.

I agree. It's great for the television shows though.

Defiance - 8.5/10

True story about The 3 Bielski Brothers, It tells the story of Tuvia Bielski, Alexander "Zus" Bielski, and Asael Bielski, three Jewish brothers who established a large partisan camp in the forests of Belarus during World War II, and so saved 1,200 Jews from the Nazis.



on the Left (Alex "Zus" Bielski, 2nd Young Brother and he was the crazy one and he's a ladies man), In the Middle (Asael Bielski), baby brother but he got warm heart and very supportive), on the right, (Tuvia Bielski), he's the older brother and he's a leader and everybody look up to him like he's Moses when God told him what to do)


Especially the special features, they actually show the real brothers when his family videotaping them when they was alive after the war is over, etc....One of sad story...I won't spoil it if you haven't seen this movie.
