    (1) Alien Vers Predator. (2) Sky Captin and the world of tomorrow. Both movies are well worth seeing.

    Shaun of the Dead is GREAT.

    I rented AVP, Napoleon Dynamite, The Forgotten, and Sky Captain tonight. About to eat dinner and watch AVP.

    yes, not staying up late, the video place has 5 day rentals on new releases. I will likely watch 2 tonight and 2 tomorrow night. I just finished AVP. Lot of crappy things about the plot but I guess the action and all made up for it. It wasn't widescreen which I didn't like.

    you were right but with being as much of a fan of the first 2 predators as I am I had to see it no matter what

    Yeah they really did a good job effects wise

    Did all the predators seem taller to you?

    Some of the action was clunky I thought.

    they seemed bit a little larger all around. They were more like 7 foot and just a really cut guy before, this they were like body builders and more like 8 foot. Some of the action was a little lackluster. For a little I thought the whole movie would be closeups of the fighting so they could cheap out.

    If you like B movies make sure to watch Death Machine. It's a Douriff classic.

    just watched "The Forgotten" to whoever suggested it, I hold you personally responsible and want my 2 hours back! I had high hopes for that but they blew it with simplicity.

    of course, I'm scared easily by that crap. I can watch an entire horror movie and not get scared but one normal person jumps from behind a corner and I'm screwed.

    /me pats steve on the head

    my problem is it was FAR too simple. I like movies that make you think, I figured this would be one, nope simple storyline, yawn. I guessed the storyline at the beginning but I always try and guess throughout a movie, this time I was right :mad:
