Which is worse though:

Being in a lifeboat with a tiger...you know he wants to eat you...or

Being in a lifeboat with other humans who may be thinking of eating you...or

Being in a lifeboat with Gerard Depardieu?

Being in a lifeboat with Samuel L. Jackson reading 'Moby Dick' to you:

Caught World War Z. Enjoyed it.

Going to see it when I get paid. Lots of the Philadelphia bits were actually shot in Glasgow, so looking forward to seeing it.

Also, we can supply our own undead in huge quantities...

The French Connection - Gene Hackman rocks - I bet police in NYC sometimes wish it was 1971 again.

Second best car chase scene ever? Not sure if the Blues Brothers or Bullit is the best, but French Connection is probably number 2...

If that makes any sense...

No, I know it doesn't...

I found myself debating this as well - I haven't seen Bullit, but the Blues Brothers is definitely up there.

Watched The Shining about 3 times in the past two weeks. Between AMC, IFC and BBC America it seems like that movie is always on. Not complaining.

Oh and then I saw One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest before I fell asleep last night.

A Disney movie called "Enchanted". Better than sitting in a psychiatrist's waiting room for two hours watching something like Fox News.

Zero Dark Thirty. Really don't get why a lot of people thought it was torture propaganda. Torture was presented as being, at best, "meh" in getting results in the film, and it put a lot more emphasis on the traditional spy methods in terms of what led to Bin Laden's death.

That being said, it wasn't nearly as good as Bigelow's last film, Hurt Locker. The first half managed to simultaneously drag, while also never settling enough in one setting to get the story grounded. No character other than Chastain's had any depth, and it was rather evident that the film got reworked to reflect that they actually got Bin Laden.

Film before that was Silver Linings Playbook. Nice to see Robert De Niro doing a good dramatic role where he's not playing a caricature of himself.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

Just back from Despicable Me 2.

No, really, we liked it.

Death Wish 2 was on this weekend as part of the Death Wish marathon on AMC. First of all, I was very surprised that there were 5 Death Wish movies made. I couldn't watch the entire marathon, as Death Wish 2 pretty much is the same as numbers 1, 3 and I'm guessing 4 and 5. My favorite part of 80's action movies is how automobiles seemed to be more explosive then. A simple head on collision could take out an entire city block.

Gang members from the 80's were also very interesting characters. Not only did they sport very effeminate dress and hair styles (they all looked like they were ready to break out into a dance number), they oozed an aura of greasiness that just shouted out - "I need a shower, badly."

Anyway, a great way to zone out for the night and I will give it 3 beer mugs for Charles Bronson being able to pull it off as a 60 year old action hero. :drinking: :drinking: :drinking:

Echoed. Also, we saw WWZ and Pacific Rim, enjoyed both. My one comment about WWZ is that the pacing near the end seemed a bit... off? Haven't been able to pinpoint it exactly, but the best I can say is that I wasn't expecting it to end when it did.

Since I hadn't seen the original Despicable Me, I watched that recently with the lady friend too, so we'll probably see the sequel this summer. Right now though, we're getting me caught up on The Godfather. Part II is tonight, it's quite exciting.

Also saw a Darren Arronofsky film called Pi, which was interesting.
