I thought Grand Canyon was much more Pop Art like... it was showing us our self in a hyper format, yet allows you the viewer to judge/decide.

I thought Crash had an agenda, and was not open to allowing the viewer to judge/decide.
Watched the new Bond this weekend. As expected, action was awesome, story and everything else average. I would give it B- just because it was entertaining and I like Craig as bond. I wish they would let bond use his charm a little more instead of just kicking ass all the time. Also, I was not a big fan of the new bond girl. Cute girl but they should have made her more feminine, if that makes any sense. With that said, it’s a fun 2 hours and if you’re in the mood for action, I would recommend it.

Should disclose that I didn’t like Casino Royale as much as most. I couldn’t get over the cheesy poker scenes. I gave CR a C+ in comparison.
I've been sick for the past 10 days and one of the local cable movie channels is doing a James Bond retrospective. The other night I saw On Her Majesty's Secret Service, which I hadn't seen for a long time. I forgot that JB (George Lazenby) actually got married in that one. Eek

10 days! Red Face

Wow, I have never been sick for more than a few days.

Steve, get well soon my friend, then come on down to Dallas. It was 75 and sunny today. Wink

Agreed.

You should see when the Canadian show "This Hour has 60 Minutes" goes to Washington to ask people very simple questions about Canada.

Similar results, my friend. Roll Eyes

You must follow up, of course, with the Road Warrior.

This is still one of my favorite action movies ever. It just flows so well.

And the stunts are amazing.

...and be sure to follow up with Mad Max 3.

MM3 destroyed the franchise, in my opinion.

What?! You didn't think that Tina Turner was amazing as Aunty Entity? Wink

Actually Rothko, I agree with you. MM3 started out very well, and then quickly spiraled into a pile of pig manure, literally. Big Grin
I owed the wife one so we went and watched Easy Virtue on Friday night. It wasn’t as much of a chick flick as I expected, but it wasn’t good either. Jessica Biel was easy on the eyes as always (easily in my top 5), but the story was choppy and seemed a bit forced. C

Yesterday while nursing a cold on the couch we watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Really random movie here that had an odd pace to it. There were some laugh out loud scenes but overall it was totally cliché and somewhat boring. C-
Movie called "The Arranged." An Orthodox Jewish woman teacher and a Moslem women teacher work at the same school and become friends and share many common experiences as they both wrestle with their parents' cultural desire for them to be the bride in an arranged marriage. 90 minutes.
(no sex, no one is knifed or shot, and there is no profanity)
A very nice movie. Netflix.

So do they end up kissing or what? Cool Big Grin

Great compared to what? I will state that the action scenes were great but besides that, euh!


Well, I imagine most people watch this movie for the action, so therefore...

I agree that it's no classic, but I really find it highly entertaining.
