I saw this stupid movie called WILD HOGS and really laughed my ass off. I thought I wouldn't like it.

Any other good movie reviews? We're out of the kid movie range, and we're not into slasher/gore....but drama, adventure, comedy, mystery, thrillers. Violence/blood and guts isn't an issue unless it's the point of the movie as in dumb slasher movies.

I have to say that Julia and Julia looks funny just because Meryl Streep seems to fit the part perfectly.....story line looks so so.

I don't usually go by box office sales because it depends on the age range of the audience, which tells me nothing about the movie.

Wild Hogs was good! What a funny mix of guys.

Julie/Julia does look good, to me.

WCat--did you watch The Boy in the Striped Pajamas? OMG, it was heartbreaking. Don't think it was very factual, but the story was so sad. It's about the concentration camps.......one young boy in particular.

Heard the ending was shocking. I like WW2 films, so I gotta see it.

I had to call 911 on a drunk when I was driving home from work this morning. I left a couple hours early and must have caught the tail end of the bar scene. The fool was going about 10 MPH on the 90 access road and sped up to about 90-100 on 90 and literally almost ran into the car next to me. The person had to get out of the lane at the last second because this idiot did not slow down or anything. Then he threw a beer bottle out his window when he passed. I called 911 and followed him all the way down the westbound 90 access road from Hunt lane to 1604, but he went south. The 911 operator said they'd send somebody, but I'm sure they didn't. I wish the fool wasn't in a big F-150 because I wanted to run him off the road. I didn't get a chance to listen to the local news today, but hopefully the guy wrecked and killed himself. Absolutely a disgusting piece of garbage that needs to die an awful death before he kills someone else. I just don't see how these people are so pathetic around here. Never been anywhere that was even close to this bad.

The book was amazing. I can't watch WWII/concentration camp/Holocaust movies, but I read every book I can find on the subject.

OMG....they are gut wrenching...but I watch them anyway. Schindler's List blew my mind. We've watched it so many times and I'm always bawling my eyes out. Not sure why I do that to myself. I guess it doesn't seem like there could ever be enough tears to grieve for what happened. Lots of things are like that.

The Boy in the Striped PJ's is no Schindler's List as far as star power or direction or box office success.....in fact, it just had a limited run here....still a good movie and the ending is just...well, I can't say any more. Just watch it.
