The Cabin In The Woods: 7.5/10: What did I just watch? Very weird movie but I enjoyed it. I was expecting a horror movie though.

The Bourne Legacy: 7/10: Solid movie, nothing more. Rachel Weisz was really hot though.

They actually used to do that in the early days of UFC. The glory days if you ask me.

I don't think anyone ever came close to fighting so many tough fights in one night like in the movie. I remember Gracie had to pull out once because his 1st round match took too much out of him. Not only that, I doubt any organization would allow a fighter to do that. The MMA was pumped up to almost cartoon levels in this movie. At least when it came to the big tournament.

ya, i kind of agree. still, pretty good movie. of course, hollywood is going to do their thing and dramatize it and add some over the top elements. i did like the acting and family dynamic but the plot details did bother me a bit.

i actually preferred 'the wrestler' more.

This movie was brilliant. Part sci-fi thriller, part atomic age satire, part anti-violence, part heart warming boy and friend story.

Everything, from it's interesting art style, to it's heart tugging moments such as the one in white: I played a game in my head where I guesses how many of my students would cry when the Giant flies off to save the town by blowing up the bomb and says: "Suuuperman" as he does it and then closes his eyes. I guessed 5. I was way short. This movie is truly, imo, a great film.

I need to find this for my own collection. Really it's a movie I will show my own kids, and my grand kids.

If you haven't seen it, I recommend you do, and if you haven't seen it in a while you should dig it out and pop it in and get ready to remember why you fell in love with it the first time.

WARRIOR - 6 / 10

I kindof agree with what Knickballer said upstairs...

I am a big fan of martial arts and have been there carefully following MMA/UFC since day 1 in the 90s... but this movie is overrated like hell... it is well written & directed, but meh...

BATTLESHIP - 7 / 10

I really do like these sci-fi/fantasy popcorn movies from time to time, you just shut down your brain and chill.. if you take the movie for what it is, you will enjoy it...
The movie could have been sooooo much more though... oh well

JOHN CARTER - 8 / 10

Liked it! Its kindof like Avatar meets Star Wars or something like that, decent plot and effects

UFC did 3 fights in one night. In the movie, they did 2 fights, 2 nights in a row. It really isn't that much of a stretch.

The Silence of the Lambs - 8.5/10. The first half of the moved a little slow, but the last hour really picked up. Lecter is one sick mofo, one of the most sadistic and twisted characters I've ever seen. The final 10 minutes or so of the film were very tense, really such a masterpiece.

I do not teach as of yet. That is my goal, but I'm still in school.

I am a leader at an after school program for elementary students. It's a fun ass job. A lot of responsibility, a lot of work (doing homework is like pulling teeth with this set), but at the end of the day I couldn't picture holding down a normal 22 year guy's old job anymore.

It's great to hear other people aspiring to work education. It's a field that I believe needs a lot of very smart, very enthusiastic people to right the ship. Mad props.
