“No, we’ve been disappointed in the movies we’ve seen … ‘Robin Hood’ was too long and too slow.”

“Yes, I saw ‘Backup Plan.’ It was predictable, but it was entertaining.”

“Yes, I’ve seen ‘Princes and the Frog’ with my kids … It was a funny movie.”

Ah the Twilight series... one young woman's dilemma of having to decide between bestiality or necrophilia.

I wish the idiot who does the Cary Grant movie spot on Sunflower would realize that "The Bachelor" and "The Bobbie Soxer" is one movie, not two as he makes it sound.

Saw a lot of good Cary Grant movies for free, under the stars, with a great crowd. Thanks to Parks and Rec, and all the businesses who sponsored the summer movie event. What's on line for next year?

We finally saw Men Who Stare at Goats. Absolutely one of the best movies we have seen in a long time. And, I sure don't have any desire to see the vampire movies.

hermione. there are no shadows or corners to hide in on the OTS. If the boys say it is so, it is so. You do gotta have a little faith baby.

"I have no idea who this Irish is, or why you are addressing me as such, if that is indeed your intent. No, I am not kidding. I am just that serious about the Twilight series. As you may have guessed my real name is not Oak. And, it is not Irish." June 30, 2010 at 5:07 p.m.

Umm . . . Whatever you say. Cleo.

I can't watch them Twilight movies. Those 2 Tiger Beat teen idols totally give me the creeps. Not the characters, the real guys. Especially that Taylor Lautner. WTH is wrong with him? Is he inbred, part cave man maybe? Seriously, I have no problem saying a guy is good looking, but he's just freakish. His face sucks, his hair sucks, hell his whole head sucks!!

"Eclipse is not aimed at pre-teen girls," Irish/Oak/Hermoniene/et al...

Well, maybe Ryan meant The Eclipse, which was showing recently at Liberty Hall. Irish movie about death and ghosts and stuff. (Not a horror movie though.) Probably not what Ryan meant, though.

We liked "Toy Story 3" but other than that I think the only theater-movie I saw was the new "Robin Hood," which was sub-par.

I'm having better luck with the on-demand movies at home. Finally watched "Up" over the weekend and loved it.

Toy Story 3 was really good. I cried like a big old softy.

(psst- LJWorld- Princess and the Frog)

A movie that is out this summer that I do not want to see is The Human Centipede. Google it if you want recurring nightmares.

La Teta Asustada, or the English Title, The Milk of Sorrow was one of the best movies I had ever seen. It was a nominee for best foreign language flick at the Oscars.

"Ryan, you know how I know you're gay?"

I was letting it slide. However, grown folks being obsessed over a movie that is aimed at pre-teen girls is a bit disturbing.

Some of the greatest works tend to go completely unnoticed by the mainstream. This one has a great morally redeeming value.

Good? No such thing.

Entertaining?

There Will Be Blood

Autie, I see the river stopped going up in your neck of the woods...for now.

Keep walkin' in those big circles so you can enjoy many more. I will hoist a Free State Beer in your honor.

Yeah, that's right, named the boys Smith and Wesson. If we wanted two sparkly fairy dust wussies, we would have named them Jacob and Edward.

Speaking of movies with Warren Oats, I've not watched Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia in a long time. Might have to dig that out this weekend.......

Happy birfday, Autie.

Dead Snow was great. Of course my wife thought I had lost what little mind I have left.

I did see "The Dirty Dozen" sometime back in May. There usually isn't a movie in the theaters I have any desire to see.

TOB- This stupid vampire craze is getting old.

0

The_Original_Bob 3 years, 9 months ago

You know what I can't stand? Those stupid vampire movies. Now, don't confuse this as me having seen any of those movies, but abstinence emo vampires make me want to kill kittens. Give a good bloody and pornographic zombie movie any day.

Happy birthday & so on & so forth, autie.

Mea Culpa. I always get "She Who Can Not Be Tamed" confused with "He Who Must Not Be Named"

I bet it is a common mixup

Nothing new. Over the weekend, we looked at the movies that are at the theaters now and saw nothing of interest. May go see Inception when it comes out. Watched Zombie Land Saturday night. It was great. Happy Birthday Autie!

Autie is numerically older today.

I watched Inherit the Wind on TCM and my kid wonder why it was in black and white.

The best movie I've seen this summer was The Third Man starring Joseph Cotten & Orson Wells.

Man, I miss Sunset Drive In. A friend of mine had this MG. We'd go see crappy soft core porn and Cheech and Chong movies. Top down with a cooler full of Little Kings. Then one time another friend and I tried to sneak me in. I was pretty well hidden on the floor of his '70 Cutlass. Problem was I guess they didn't buy the fact that he was going alone. We got kicked out. I think I used to throw up a lot there. Part of learning how to be a drunk.

Summer movies aren't the same after the downfall of the Drive In Theater.

Maybe I'm getting old and cranky, but I haven't seen a good movie in 50 years! Attack of the 50 foot Woman, now that got this preteen's hormones flowing! And Bride of Frankenstein! Wow, could she spark up the night! Shirley Temple? Yeah, I dig older women! All this 3-D, Technycolor and surround sound? BAH!! Shades of gray and piano music, that's how you keep an audience thrilled! And as for humor, them Keystone Cops would have us rolling in the isles! Give me Howdy Doody, the Lone Ranger and the Gillette Friday Night Fights any day!

Humbug!!

Nope. I only watch movies with a ton of CGI and 3D. I went to se that M. Night Somalian movie but I dropped my 3D glasses in the urinal before it started. I don't think it was very good anyway.
