Salt - entertaining, but don't expect anything fancy about either the plot or the action.

Blind Side - nearly made me cry. love thy neighbours especially those in the blind side. I was going to say people like paris hilton should watch it but then it's unlikely to have any effect

Iron Man 2 - incredibly boring, plot leaves nothing for the imagination. but enjoyed scarlett's fight scenes.

The Box - the what? 0.1/10 - turned it off. but then again, i don't watch films about unreality/unnatural so call me biased.

Knight and Day - a dry kind of humour, but rather entertaining. nothing fancy though, and you can see that tom and cameron tried very hard.

Tron 2010 - awesome effects, a bit slow in places, definitely one for the Blu-ray collection 7.5/10

Date Night - I think there were a couple of laughs, but pretty below average overall 3.5/10

Saw the original Tron at the flicks all those years ago... first CGI movie I believe is that right? Groundbreaking technology back then. As previously said, special effects has come a long way since then. Heard mixed reviews of Legacy, however I'm a fan regardless.

Will share my thoughts once seen.




- Telstra HTC Touch Pro2 - Energy ROM WM6.5.5 20 Oct/Cyanogen Mod Froyo 2.2 - R.I.P
- AT&T Galaxy S Captivate 16GB on XT (now with brother)
- Samsung Galaxy S2 on XT- Runs ICS 4.0.3 Resurrection Remix 9.2
- Business Hours - Work In The Electricity Industry, After Hours - DJ/Turntablist - Will Scratch Vinyl For Free'
- What's next??? S3?

Watched The Social Network a couple of days ago. 9/10 for a thrilling story. It's not quite the real story of Facebook, but the characters are well written.

Last night i watched

127 Starring James Franco and a story about a guy who goes tramping / caving and gets stuck for....... 127 hours. I didn't recall seeing that it was a true story in the shorts but it was and for a movie about a guy being stuck in the same place for a long time 8 outta 10.

Literally prior to that I watched

Unstoppable with Denzel Washington and also based around a true story it was very good 8 outta 10.

So thewse two movies made for a good Friday night.

Let's be honest, you gave Salt that cos angie's hot in a crazy kind of way ! haha
I give SALT 7/10 cos of the twists also, and because it's not that amazing, but it's good.
Megamind, that can have the same I think, it's pretty cool.
The Tourist 4/10 While I liked it cos of Angelina, it's not really that great to be honest.. Fine to fill time, but yeah..
R.E.D - thought it was awesome. Loved seeing Helen Mirren  Kicking ass, it was a real feel good action. but the romance side was just plain weird to me

I agree with Salt being 7/10. But I must confess I actually enjoyed the story quite a bit.

Never let me go (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1334260/ )

Very sad and somewhat depressing but also a little haunting, had me thinking for a while after.

Watched the new rendition of True Grit last night with Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon it was pretty good I think Bridges played his role very well. Damon's character seemed awkward to me.

The movie 7.5 outta 10 (sorry have to give .5 extra as there is no way this movie is on par with Salt).

Salt was so so yeah the twists were ok but really easy to pick from way too early in the movie. You can twist a Lemon so many times but it don't change the fact it's still a Lemon.

ROFL... You think she's hot, and then try to make it look like everyone else does.

Sorry, my rating wasn't because of her appearance in the movie.
