    Where I live we have Dollar movies. The theater is getting kind of old They have built bigger and fancier ones.So after a movie has made the rounds of the newer theaters they end up their and you can see them for $1.50 to $2.00 CB

    I can't say that Little Fockers is the worst movie ever. I never saw it. The previews were enough to make me stay away.
    Also movies,or anything that uses a play on words.Little Fockers sounds like Little ------
    I'm sure I don't even need to say it. People who thank that's funny, remind me of little children giggling. when they say a bad word. Tee Hee Tee Hee you said Poo Poo..

    I recently watched Unstoppable, its a good action movie.

    For a good martial arts movie check out Ip Man. (I'm not a martial arts aficionado, so there may be others better).

    Star wars movies are good (IV, V and VI are my favs though), Star Trek movies are good, Inception's a good film...Bloodsport is a favorite of mine also.

    Great Escape, Flight of the Phoenix (old or newer version), Wargames ( can't explain why, it's just so watchable.) and Star Wars (again).
    I went to see Star Wars at the Odeon in Luton, June '77, was SO impressed, and then had to catch the bus to go home, in the dark. Never been so disappointed with real life! I'm nearly over it now.

    The Limey.

    If you've never watched it, find it and watch it NOW. It is about 12 years old and still rocks hard.

    The only other movie that I can recommend, seriously, is Jurassic Park III. That one makes I & II look like kiddie flicks.

    That sounds a bit too, "esoteric" for my pedestrian tastes...:rolleyes:

    Moving along, "Thor", (recently released to DVD), was very entertaining.

    That said, I would have liked to see two versions released, one with Natalie Portman, the other with Keira Knightley in the "Jane Foster" role.

    Ms. Knightley has the flatter chest, an overbite, and a cockney accent, all of which I find terribly appealing. Fetish, I suppose.

    Other than those minute differences, they look pretty much alike.....:rolleyes:

    They don't look alike! Keira looks much better! In fact, she's who I named my second daughter after - and I don't prefer flat chested skinny women.

    I also found Thor to be quite entertaining, a nice addition to the Marvel series. As to the debate between Natalie and Keria I'd have to say they both look pretty good to me ... perhaps a poll is in order to resolve this matter.

    esoteric schmesoteric, it's about a hobo with a dream to buy a lawn-mower and start his own lawn-mowing business. He saves up enough money but when he's buying his mower a girl is getting harassed by some thugs. Instead of purchasing his lawn mower he buys a shotgun instead and decides to become a vigilante. PLUS it has rutger hauer! What's not to love?

    Oh Lord......!
    Well, it is nice to see Mr. Hauer moving up to lead roles, after the "low point" of his career in "Blade Runner". This was obviously beneath him, being forced to take on the supporting role of "Roy Batty"! Incidentally, I believe he was even overlooked for an Oscar in that epic film.

    If you simply can't get enough of "Hobo with a Shotgun", the IMDB assures me there is a "making of" addition to its film library! The scary part of this movie's cult lore is, the Hauer version is a remake! http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q=hobo+with+a+shotgun

    The photo of Ms. Knightley Mizzou has posted is from the London premier of, "Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest"! A title I find quite ironic in view of the discussion that will now follow. Kiera, in her choice of gown, whether consciously or unconsciously, issues the most glorious public rebuke of breast enhancement surgery to which I have borne witness. Beverly Hills plastic surgeons take note, cast down your silicone fun bags, and if you please, take the rest of the decade or so off.

    The photo series from which that shot was taken, was floating around the net, at or near full res, check it out if you can find it.

    Keira Knightley is arguably a better actress that Natalie Portman, if only for the fact her screen presence is much more commanding. Check out her in, "King Arthur", with Clive Owen. She more than holds her own. She's also the more sensual, erotic creature of the two women. This despite Portman's effort as the the semi nude, exotic dancer, "Alice", in "Closer. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0376541/ In "Closer", an odd turn of parallel destinies manifests itself, with Clive Owen showing up in the film. I saw it, and trust me, this movie is no, "King Arthur".

    However, when she volunteers for duty in the Jane Austin novel based, "Pride and Predjudice", that's where I bail. She could almost do that superficial, pretentious garbage naked, and I wouldn't watch it. Although, if anybody knows of a porn version, please link it for me....:rolleyes:

    Okay - in that picture they do look similar. I prefer Keira in a Pirates getup.

    When I saw Kiera in Pirates (the first one?) that was the first time I had ever seen her, and for a while I did think it was Natalie.

    Different topic:
    Surprised nobody commented on Ip Man that I suggested. Maybe nobody has seen it?

    The Japanese, anime fans, and the like call that, "Cosplay", and it seems to be a Japanese national pastime.... :haha: ..:wave:

    Thanks to Mizzou, for a stellar piece of image research.
