Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

yeah im going to have to give it a couple go arounds. but am i wrong that the movie left something to be desired?

i realize that each person has their own preferences, etc but i feel like my impression of the movie is outside the norm and im not sure why.

while i will have to watch it a few times, i just dont see the potential for sleeper comedy with this one.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

It got a lot of hype which probably raised your expectations.

Watch it again in a few weeks, you should definitely like it more the 2nd time around.

you gave your wedding ring that your grandmother had thru the holocaust to the stripper but it was meant for your fiancee? no worries, we wont address that or devot any of the plot of you trying to get the ring back.

tiger in the bathroom? oh that mike tysons, were going to show a whole 15 second security video clip of you guys laughing to cover the implied hilarious situation that unfolded where you end up with a tiger in your bathroom.

the movie just failed to deliver imo.

they had a good mixed cast of characters (uptight dentist, recluse odd ball brother in law, the cool good looking down for whatever guy best man, then the committed responsible but still cool husband to be) but their contrasts were never really utilized beyond sporadic moments of "i cant believe you did that".

idk the movie just failed to live up to what i was expecting. i was expecting a gut buster but instead got a waterdowned script that fast forwards thru much of the scenes that could have been funny.
I know that a lot of people didn't like the movie, but to say there were no good one liners? Wow. I thought they were what made the movie so damn funny, but maybe I'm just a rahtard.

Watched Marley and Me tonight. It was on HBO and I didn't have anything else to watch. I cried. I'm getting married in June and we want to start a family, and it just touched on a few levels.

Side note: Jennifer Aniston gets hotter with age.

I saw a bit of it tonight, probably won't ever sit down and watch it all

yeah she did get hotter.. didn't really change her look either.. saw something comparing her from the late 90s to now as far as style, clothes, etc.. not much has changed

The ending is sad, but at the same time I've never watched a movie that made me want a dog so badly. It's not about the destination, it's the journey.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Me n the wife saw kick ass last nite and thought it sucked ass.The scenes with an 11 yr old girl brutally murdering somebody and cussing just didnt sit right with us.{But I have to admit the cock joke was funny}And while shes murdering people there were people hysterically laughing,and me and my wife are looking at each other dumbfounded as to what was so damn funny,it didnt matter that its a child doing it,I dont think the scene was meant to be funny.It wasnt all bad,but it wasnt enjoyable to us.
Just watched the at the movie guys review and it was exactly how I felt

Has anyone watched Spartacus: Blood and Sand on Starz? At first I wasn't too impressed but after a while I became hooked.

My wife and I watched the whole season on Netflix I liked it. Very, very graphic not only with the violence but with the sex also... Waiting to see what next season is all about...

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

anyone that digs rock documentaries:

the White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights is really good.

even better is It Might Get Loud, about guitar, featuring Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White. cool stuff.


oh, and hey OTM what's up!

Yeah it started slow, but really picked up when he became "the bringer of rain." And all the actresses on the show are gorgeous, but holy crap is Viva Bianca(Iliythia) amazingly hot or what?

The second season unfortunately, but understandably, has been put on hiatus so the main actor Andy Whitfield can fight his recently diagnosed non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. While season 2 is on hold though, they are developing a possible 6 episode prequel. 'Spartacus: Blood and Sand' Season 2 postponed, possible prequel in the works - From Inside the Box - Zap2it
