Got lucky, found it showing early at Harkins tonight at 8:00. Great popcorn movie, and make sure to hang out for the scene after the credits.

I can't stand that shit. They ought to just start the scenes after movie fades to black, then throw up the credits.


Still going to see movie tonight.

Great movie! Watched it online last night, definitely going to check it out in the theater too.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Shaddup Ryan. I thought it was badass. Even the hotrod as inspiration for the paint on the suit. Fairly forgettable, but fun and what I went in expecting to see.

Random chick at red carpet-"Hey Tony, remember me?"

Walks by without even looking "Sure don't."

Wasn't that the same chick that played the wife in Talladega Nights?

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land."

Happened so quick I didn't even see her. That deadpan response from him was priceless though. Once of the better portrayals of a "playboy" type guy I've ever seen done on the silver screen.

Saw it over the weekend. I thought it was very cool. I could have done with a little less background story/build up and more ass kicking, but I was very pleased. The SHIELD reference was cool and I like the fact that they left it wide open for another one. The deuce coupe was a bad bitch. The flame job was weak, but it had a purpose. Didn't stay for after the credits. Someone pm me what I missed.

That movie fuckin' rocked! I loved pretty much every second of it. Jeff Bridges and Gwen Paltrow were fantastic as well.

One thing to note that took me a while to get a hold of plot-wise: given the context, it was easy to write off the "10 Rings" bad guys as Islamic extremists or something. From what I understand, they're more than that. They gave a hint at the fact that there were so many languages spoken there. They're supposed to be a world wide bad guy organization with no religious ferver behind it, more like something you'd see out of a Bond villian, not the Talliban or somesuch.

Hahah, that thing was damn near perfect. I loved it that he had a garage full of exotics, and the old rod was the one he played with and had as his screen saver. But the only one he drove was the R8.

the latest nick fury was modeled after Jackson... he was originally a white guy.

A notable difference between the two is the fact that Classic Fury is a Caucasian colonel with brown hair, while Ultimate Fury is a bald African-American general, and was in fact specifically tailored after actor Samuel L. Jackson with his permission.

Spiderman yes -

Hulk not really that good - they picked the wrong director/lead actor for it


BTW the long promo for "the incredible hulk" with Ed Norton was badass, it should be much better than the one from a few years ago - I think they realized they need to put some decent actors in these comic movies to get them close to right.

Erica Bana was not the problem with the first Hulk. Everything else was.

I tend to agree. Weird thing is, I've really enjoyed some Ang Lee movies, and I absolutely love Jennifer Connoly and Sam Elliot too. But that mix (plus Nick Nolte?) didn't really work.

That, and ILM did not do their best work on that movie. The effects were inconsistent at best. In some shots, the hulk looked great, in others, he looked like a cartoony Shrek-in-purple-pants. Don't even get me started on the "fight sequence in nearly-complete darkness" with zombiesteroid poodle.
