I, Robot. With Will Smith.

Actually it was on TV over the weekend. And I watched it again. (Might have it here on DVD, I'm not sure.)  I've probably watched it as many times as any other movie I can think of. Dunno. Always enjoy it.  
Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.

Funny, I was just thinking of both I, Robot and I Am Legend as something I might want to rewatch.

Tortilla Soup - The story is OK but the food prep presentation would please even Don's son Josh I think.  Hector Elizondo is a Latino restaurant owner, father of three eligible age daughters, and a bit of the movie is devoted to close up shots, amazing shots of the food prep that would make anyone that appreciates good food drool.
I understand that it's a Latino slanted remake of an Asian film Eat, Drink, Man, Woman but I've never seen that.

You're a better man than I. Just can't abide subtitles.

Thin the last couple of weeks. I think we probably enjoyed School of Rock more than anything. Stupid and silly but the kids were cute.

Should also mention that it looks like John Carter is a dud. At least Tinker, Tailor will be released on DVD next month, probably looking forward to that more than anything else I can think of.

I fully expect to be disappointed.

I'm not pessimistic, just realistic (sigh).

I've been negligent in my reporting! 

Enjoyed The Forbidden Kingdom and August Rush from Netflix.  The Forbidden Kingdom had Jackie Chan and Jet Li.  Funny parts along with creative martial arts.  August Rush is a feel good family story with a bit of the old film making thrown in.

Also on Netflix, my youngest played Top Gear season 14, episode 4, a little over half way through, it was about the renault.  Quite funny, in a British way.

Watched the new Three Musketeers,  good story with a bit of a twist from others I've seen.  Also watched Tintin.  It has some of the best animation I have ever seem - the cloth, hair, and numerous other details, just outstanding.

Oh yeah, also saw John Carter.  Was a cross between Star Wars and Indiana Jones.  We enjoyed it, didn't feel like we got robbed anyway.  Some funny lines, hero beats the bad guys stuff.

I watched some 10 minute preview of Carter online.  My only thought was a lot of prayers the actual movie is a lot better.  I'll watch...if for nothing else all the special effect and to see if I remember anything from reading it decades ago. (Probably not. LOL)

Almost tempting to try Netflix streaming. Almost. Sigh.

Atlas Shrugged - it finally came and I watched tonight.  I read the book back in the 60s so consequently don't recall too much.  But I'm sure the left leaners hated it being so anti "for the good of all" in tone.  Who is John Galt?  Well, it left me a little ticked, not at the movie but the gist and the government of the time.  So close as to be uncomfortable for the left I think.
Geoffrey Beckel, a staunch conservative and brother to Bob Beckel, the also staunch liberal and ever present contributor and liberal token on Fox News, was a semi major player in the movie as the oil man.

Might catch that one. I've always been curious. Never read the book...

Kinda funny, I had it in mind that it was a scify book, not that I don't like scify.  When spending time with my brother the last few weeks he told me it was not and a bit about it so it's now in the que.

Had some friends express their dislike for the John Carter movie.  They seemed to have expected good acting.  Don't know why.

Watched The Immortals tonight.
Immortals (2011) - IMDb

Maybe a 3?  It was "OK", just not anything like I was expecting. Guess I was expecting epic battles throughout, and a lot more character development/details. It left me "wondering" enough that I actually went online afterwards to look up Greek myth history, especially on the Titans...who didn't strike me as Titans at all.

Watched "The Hunger Games" at the theater tonight with my youngest.  Was a very good movie, good guys win, not sure if they will until the end.

Ooh I'm exhausted!  Watched a draining, gritty, depressing but with a good outcome movie The Way Back.  Prisoners escape a Russian Gulag in Siberia in early WWII times and their monumental foot slog to freedom.  Survival movie to the nth degree!
