    The only Fast and Furious movie I liked was Initia- I mean Tokyo Drift. I never even touched the second. At least the third used real vehicles.

    Are they really doing a fourth? Why?

    The 4th is supposed to be the true F&F sequel, in which the original cast reunites.

    I liked the 3rd one the most as well.

    Out of the current three, Tokyo Drift was definitely my favorite.

    So Slumdog Millionaire now has a wide release, I think as I was able to see it in my theater.

    Not seeing it is a crime against humanity, and I'll charge everyone for war crimes.

    The soundtrack is good too.

    Eddie Murphy as... The Riddler? Really? Hmm.. Now I'm curious.

    It's a BS rumor. I'm sure they're no where near a finished script nor have any casting ideas. Anyways, everybody knows the Riddler will be... John Travolta!

    They should just get Jim Carrey to reprise the role. He was the best part of Batman Forever.

    Now now, Forever wasn't that bad aside from the overuse of bright neon colors everywhere. Also Robin.

    Batman & Robin on the other hand... ugh.

    Has anyone seen Gran Torino in its limited intial release? I really want to see it next week and have even convinced the wife that it looks incredibly badass. Early reviews look pretty positive.

    Saw this trailer in front of The Day the Earth Stood Still

    How did I not know that there was a new movie in the "Liam Neeson: Ultimate Badass" genre coming out?
    I would like to subscribe to that movies newsletter.

    Jan 30? I'm surprised this is the first I've heard of it
    Honestly what more could anyone ever want in a movie beyond Liam Neeson kicking the shit out of everyone and being bad ass?

    I've been excited for Taken since the trailer first came out

    Like six months ago

    It's had a good run in French theaters already, I guess it's done pretty well? I don't know I just wanna see it so bad

    Same with Gran Torino

    I don't care what anyone says, Batman Forever was okay

    It was cheesy and cliched but it had Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones and that guy who played Alfred and it was okay alright? It was at least better than the first one

    Batman and Robin was the terrible one that nearly killed the franchise

    Just so we're clear, by first one, are you making the argument that Batman Forever was better then Batman? That is what you're saying, right? Or, are you saying that it was better then the 1960's Batman movie? You're wrong in either case, but how wrong you ARE varies depending on which movie you consider "first."

    I liked Seven Pounds, a lot. The story was obvious, the "twist" was obvious, but none of that mattered. Will Smith's best performance to date.

    Batman Forever was at least intentionally entertaining

    Tim Burton's Batman has a terrible joker and a terrible Batman and a terrible plot and a terrible batsuit

    The only thing it has going for it really is the visual aesthetic

    The Adam West Batman movie was great and still is great, so we can agree it is better than Forever

    Fuck you all, BAtman, Begins and Forever were good films. If not for Robin and Two-Face it would've been awesome. Before I knew Batman didn't kill people, BAtman was a pretty bad ass film with a bad ass Batman as the anti-hero.

    Really, comic Batman is a god damn pussy really lately, he needs to kill someone.

    ...it's in the shape of a giant c**k.

    I saw Doubt last night. It was above average though I still wish I arrived at the theater at an earlier or later time to see one of the other movies I wanted to see. It did keep my attention though.

    At the end of the film when most of the people had left the theater and I was still sitting there with friends I burst out laughing because of the ambiguity of the film.

    I saw Marley and Me and cried multiple times and left both incredibly happy and sad. Good movie. The general consensus of people that didn't like it was that there wasn't a lot of drama and it was pretty much just about the dog and the family growing up. Which makes them retards.

    Though pretty much all of the dialogue between Anniston and Owen were crap.

    Saw Valkyrie yesterday, and it was indeed awesome. It probably won't demand much attention come awards season, but it is definitely worth seeing. Tightly paced, and manages to stay full of intrigue despite the fact that you know how it will end going in.

    Saw Valkyrie today with the boyfriend.

    It was actually pretty good.

    Alot better than I was expecting it to be. I thought it would be a Tom Cruise ego-flick. It really wasn't.

    Let's see...

    Doubt - Was damn good, but not great. I really liked the ending, and every performance was damn strong. If this doesn't win at least one acting Academy award that'll be a crime.

    Slumdog Millionaire - So far probably the best movie I've seen all year. Really really anyone that has the chance should go see this.

    Actually, of the four Burton/Schumacher movies, I'd easily consider Forever to be the best.
