Salt

Anyone catch this yet? Didn't find any post so I thought I'd throw this out there. Had a few hours to kill yesterday after work and didn't want to waste time driving all the way to the other side of town to go home only to have to head back out to a GTG in Haslet. It was either this or Inception but Salt won out because it was about to start.

Not a bad flick but not great either, probably a solid 7. I'd almost liken it to a female Jason Bourne with similar fight sequences but just not as believable (at least the camera wasn't shaking all over the place). Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor offer a good supporting cast. The movie is lite on CGI which I like and the action and "gadgets" weren't over done. I like the story but don't want to give anything away. Worth a matinee and I'll definitely rent it when it comes out on DVD.

On a side note, I guess Angelina Jolie is starting to lose her hotness to me. I don't know if she's gotten to skinny but I really liked the way she looked during the Tomb Raider series.

I haven't seen Salt (and won't), but you're right about Jolie's hotness fading.

It is 100% from her getting thin. She just looks old when she is that thin.

I saw it a few weeks back. We went to a double feature at the drive in, and we had to sit through this to catch Grown Ups.

I'll say this. I hate Angelina Jolie, and I hate all the movies she does. For the last 5-6 years, every movie has been the exact same stupid flick with a different name.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Wanted, Beowulf, and others I can't even remember the names of. They ALL sucked.

Anyhow, I thought the story line was good, but the movie could have been better. I didn't completely hate it, like I expected.

That one. I thought it was Palmer, but who knows. Right there on the southbound side of 45.

Maybe it is Palmer. Either way, my gps won't find it when I put in the address. The wife and I go out there somewhat frequently, cool place.

Gas included, it's still a fuck ton cheaper than going to the theatre.

If you thought Mission Impossible or Die Hard are too out of this world, Salt takes it a step farther. No naked shots of Angelina Jolie. Action is good but a bit too far out.
