Elite Squad 2 - I agree with IMDB's 9/10.
Very good sequel to a brilliant brazilian movie from 2007.

Although not a movie I just watched the 1st episode of the Jeopardy IBM Challenge where two former Jeopardy champions take on a super-computer.

This was really good and would recommend to all Geeks out there.

Agree. Very, very cool.

Also, just finished watching a teenager flick called Easy A, with the redhead from Superbad and others.

I'd give it a 6.5/10 for mild entertainment and some quite clever jokes, but it is a chick flick, I think.

Die Hard 4.0. Good storyline, great action scenes, and epic Bruce Willis... 8/10.

Also watched Scott Pilgrim vs The World (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0446029/) and will give it another 6.5, mainly because Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) was a cutie and Michael Cera is still strange looking.

Wild Target (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1235189/). I give it 6.5/10 for its entertaining story. Obviously British movie, which is a plus, when compared with the crude jokes in American movies...

Love Birds (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1636539/combined)... New Zealand movie with Rhys Darby. Not bad, for a escape at 11am after leaving Bella at pre-school on a Monday morning. We gave it 6.5/10.

Four Lions: Terribly funny black-comedy about a group of English/Pakistani Muslims and their attempt at bringing jihad to the UK. It's got some classic dialogue mixed with visual comedy, but at the same time there are some shockingly dark messages and themes at play. A must watch if you want some truly laugh out loud comedy.

And 5 stars from me for the very same flick. Sadly hilarious and side-splittingly tragic. Mr crow was genius.

:D

Don't miss it folks.

I gave this movie 5/10 felt it was very overrated.

I watched True Grit the other week and gave it 8.5/10.

Just finished watching The Green Hornet.

It was funny and action packed would recommend. 8.5 easily. If you like Scott Pilgrim then you would certainly like this and if you didn't it's still well worth watching.

Also watched The Mechanic starring Jason Statham over the weekend as well that was also very enjoyable (if you like Jason Statham that is).

Just watched The Next Three Days. Pretty decent movie compared to the action/thriller movies of late, still not spectacular though. Give it 7/10

Also watched Catfish the other day. It's a documentary and a bit different but very entertaining. Only one tip, don't go and look it up on IMDB, just go and watch it :) 8/10
