Whoever was Jolie's stunt double earned her pay and then some!!
Nice! I'll have to see it. The Bourne series is one of my faves of all-time. Salt was originally supposed to star Tom Cruise actually.

I heard though, that she performed most of her own stunts actually

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

They shot some of Salt right in my area in downtown Albany so it's been getting a lot of hype here. I've heard mixed reviews, it's basically mission impossible with Jolie. That's why Cruise turned it down, he thought it was too similar to the MI series. I'll wait for it to be on HBO.

Nolan is just ridiculous. I haven't seen inception yet but I can't think of a movie of his that isn't good. Prestige is probably his least known movie and it is top notch.

Now i was drinking while watching this movie,so maybe Im just messed up,I need confirmation.
The players name was something like Quintrell Bishop, so that's why they refer to him as QB a couple of times in the movie. And I think the 2 sacks and a fumble recovery thing were all supposed to be in the same game (the first one against the eagles).

Great movie BTW.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

If anyone is a martial arts fan I would highly recommend checking out "Ip Man." It's about the early life of the Wing Chun master who went on to train Bruce Lee. It features some amazing fight choreography thankfully with wire work at a minimum including one fight scene I'd put up there with Tony Ja's fight scene near the end of the "The Protector" as a display of how brutal martial arts can be in the right hands. After watching this movie I've gotta catch up on some other Donnie Yen flicks.

Thanks for reminding me of this one... I've had it on the backburner for a few years now. Huge Donnie Yen fan!

Yeah I saw that last week. Definitely not your typical superhero action flick. It was pretty enjoyable.

Anybody thinking about seeing the latest spoof "Vampires Suck?" I'm debating it but once upon a time I swore to never watch any new spoof movie again after the craptacular Meet the Spartans flick, amongst Date Movie, etc. I can identify with it because I'm definitely a Twilight hater, but I don't know if I dislike it enough to go see a spoof made about it.
