Star Trek - 8/10

Saw it last week, liked it a lot. I'd never seen an episode of ST at all, so I don't know how die hard fans felt, but it was a really good, entertaining summer blockbuster from where I'm sitting.

Earth - 8.5/10

If you've seen the Planet Earth DVDs, then this won't really be new to you, except that it's obviously edited differently to present a narrative of a year in the life of our planet. It's beautiful (wish it was in IMAX), it's touching, uplifting and sad at the same time. I really enjoyed it, and the credits were actually fantastic (stay for them if you go see this).

Me too, exactly. Never saw any of the series or other movies, but I loved this one!

Helpful Tips From the Movie Taken, As We Embark On Another Jaunt of Following U2 Around on Tour:

1. Do not share a cab with a stranger, no matter how hot the stranger might be.

2. Watch out for those Albanians - they might kidnap you and sell you into sex slavery.

3. Do not, under any circumstances, piss off Liam Neeson. He will fuck you up (and remain broodingly sexy while doing so).

xx

Yeah, it was schlock, but man, it was some immensely entertaining schlock.

The 27 Club. Know why it's not been released as a major motion picture. Dark, sullen, depressing. It's only 90 mins and emotional in places. Sometimes a bit slow. Not a bad performance for Eve Hewson's first professional acting debut. If you pay close attention there are some "U2" references throughout the film. I found it odd how Eve's Irish accent and Joe Anderson's British accent sort of fluctuated during the film also. That's always annoying in a films with a foreign actor. But I am glad I finally caught the film. I believe it deserved its awards and accolades on the Film Show circuit. It's available on many cable corp's On Demand through July I believe. I give it 3-1/2 thumbs up.

Role Models - 4 outta 10 - I always hated Sean doing comedies all the time, now I appreciate he is made for comedy (hot guy thou). Paul was so wrong for this movie, thou it was meant to be his character - he still sucked.

S** Drive - 8 outta 10 - had me laughing in many areas

Defiance - bored me - 3 outta 10

The Reader - very overrated movie thou I enjoyed Kate's role in it, too much nudity and not enough with the main plot of movie. could have added more in to make it visually interesting - 4 outta 10.

The Wrestler - 9 outta 10, Mickey totally rocked in this and usually I knock off at end of movie but I kept it on and listened to Bruce's song it all fitted quite well. sudden ending to movie but still had me feeling very very sad. Great performance Mickey!

Bride Wars - boring. 2 outta 10.

know what I think it is Laz? Kate is nude in a few movies, it becomes boring after a while.

not to you of course!

Agreed, after you see someone pee on herself in a movie, it's all downhill from there.

Your hate brigade on The Wrestler is cute.

was there anything derogatory in that post about the wrestler?

I was just commenting on the physical differences between the two actresses

as for the wrestler, like many, I said it was a good movie, not great, or best movie

It comes off as condescending, especially when you reach for that particular film. I know you liked it to a certain degree, but you do pop up just to mention how overrated it is and so forth. That's fine, not a big deal, but it is tiresome.

Just thinking about female nudity in top films last year?

I like both films.

I did not like Indy 4 very much.
