This guy???? By that you mean one of the most recognisable MMA (mixed Martial Arts) fighters of all time hehe Quinton Rampage Jackson.

I agree with you though.

For me The A Team was better on a second viewing.

Watched Platoon the other night and enhjoyed it a lot.

Watched one called Repo Men with Jude Law and Forrest Whittaker. Good film however a little gory but had a good twist.

Friend of mine saw Grown Up's recently in the states and said it was funny as. Looking forward to seeing soon myself.

From what I have heard and read about Grown Ups, the humour is very out-dated and predictable and there is no storyline.  However, let us know!  I wanted to watch it initially.

Mary & Max

Some Aussie claymantion narrated by Barry Humphries and starring Phillip Seymore Hoffman & Toni Collette. A refreshing animated movie considering all the 3D digital hype floating around right now. Funny, heart-warming, a bit dark and sad at times.

8.5/10

Re-watched Lord of the Rings (1 and 2) this weekend, but this time in HD. Epic epicness. 9/10 (just because they tend to drag on a bit with Frodo and Sam at times).

I already own the extended DVD set, think its worth shelling out for the HD versions instead ?

Definitely wait for the Blu-ray. The photography is gorgeous. But no point in getting the theater versions. Extended is the way to go.

Actually wanted to watch Inception, but the sessions were all full, so I watched Knight and Day last night. Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise in a sort-of romantic comedy/action flick. Wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. 6.75/10

Watched Brooklyns Finest the other day, pretty average. Wasn't expecting a drama, 2/10

Watched Hot Tub Time Machine with the wife last night. We both thought it was quite funny and humourous for a Saturday night flick. 7/10

Watched inception and Predators at the movies this weekend.

Inception was really good except after the initial 10 mins it dragged on for about 30 mins before the rest of the movie was great. Not the sorta movie you would want to go to the toilet in during the second half or you may find it a little hard to catch up with what's happening. 8.5/10 (loses a point for it dragging after the initial opening). This will definately be joining my bluray collecetion.

Predators was actually quite good (well at least quite a bit better than i expected) and as i was expecting it to be quite terrible to average i was pleasantly surprised. The movie was quite enjoyable and if you go to it expecting to see a Predator movie action film then i would say it would be certainly worth seeing if your one of those people who go see a movie expecting to see oscar winning performances every time and base your ratings accordingly then i couldn't see this scoring over a 5 for you. Personally i knew what i was exxpecting and set my expectations accordingly. 7/10

Inception.

Very good 'full bodied' film. By that i mean has substance and not the usual garbage coming out of Hollywood these days. Soundtrack was fantastic. You can tell NOlan put a lot into this movie.

That movie was a classic example of something being so bad its good. Like, the shark can swim at 500knots apparently. And theres a scene where the shark bites off 2 of the Octopus's tentacles and in the next scene moments later, they magically grew back. hahaha
