[QUOTE=ThatOneGuy;313945]What are some movies you have recently seen and DIDN'T like? For me, off the top of my head: Dark Knight Rises Jack & Jill The Big Year The Avengers ...there are some others I can't think of them right now though[/QUOTE] I didn't like The Big Year either. I didn't like the new Madea movie... whatever it was called. Battleship started really slowly.. but I liked it by the end. I LOOOOOVED The Avengers and DKR. I think you're crazy. lol

I loved the Dark Knight Rises. To be honest I haven't even seen any of the other C.B. Batmans but I thought this one was everything it should be. And I really loved Anne Hathaway as catwoman. Now as far as redbox rentals go has anyone seen American Reunion? If so, is it any good? I just want to get it for nostalgia purposes as the original came out when I was in high school and it was one of my faves back then. I was in love with Chris Klein! And I even liked the guy from the kids movie Rookie of the Year that played Tara Reids boyfriend, he was my childhood crush. As well as JTT (that's Jonathan Taylor Thomas for all you kids born in the 90's) Anyhoo, any redbox suggestions lemme know!

I was surprised how much I laughed at it. If you want to see something weird, drama-y and indie....Loosies is pretty good i guess. I feel like i'm the last person in the world to see 21 Jump Street, but if you haven't seen it, watch that one too. I'm planning to watch American Reunion and Harold & Kumar XMas next.... And I disagree, Anne Hathaway as catwoman was the worst decision I've ever heard. She did OK of busting out of her Princessy image, but it was still there. And, well, I'm going to be honest about this, she was catwoman, she could have been way sexier. [QUOTE=Bella;313975]I didn't like The Big Year either.

I laughed pretty hard about the chicken burrito...

Unfortunately, the Redbox selection is usually pretty terrible. Rented Wanderlust a couple of weeks ago, it was meh. I fell asleep during 50/50 and Moneyball. Jeff Who Lives at Home was very meh for the guys in it, but had its moments. The Grey is...well, Liam Neeson. The Woman in Black was not what I was expecting Daniel Radcliffe's first movie after HP to be. Ghost Protocol was ok. I saw Safe House in theaters, and it was decent. Rum Diary was not very good - saw that in theaters. 30 Minutes or Less was decent - saw that in theaters. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was really good. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close was also really good although the kid annoyed the crap out of me. I also liked The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, The Help, and The Ides of March. I haven't seen either, but I heard terrible things about Rampart and good things about War Horse. And The Artist is out on Redbox now. I haven't seen it but it did win best picture, so it can't be that bad, right? Wow, I watch a lot of Redbox movies.

I gave up on 50/50 after [SPOILER]his girlfriend left him[/SPOILER] because I was bored the first time, then I finished it through and it was alright but I wouldn't recommend it.
American Psycho is probably my favorite movie from that list, though I also loved Requiem and Donnie Darko
[QUOTE=molds13;313991] The Woman in Black was not what I was expecting Daniel Radcliffe's first movie after HP[/QUOTE] I saw the play a few years back in London, WAY, WAY better. The movie was weird and reminded me so much of The Ring at parts. I agree, not really expecting it. And it wasn't bad, but it was no where near great. [QUOTE]And The Artist is out on Redbox now.

I'm disappointed that I haven't had the time to see it yet.
Passing on The Artist. Overhyped. Anyway, 50/50, Safe House and Contraband are excellent choices/movies. Ghost protocol was mediocre. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was underwhelming.

I love Rookie of the Year.
I went to see The Campaign with Will Ferrell and Zach Galafinakis today and it was pretty funny. It wasn't as great as Step Brothers, but if you want a laugh, go see it.

Recommending Think Like A Man. That was just too funny.

Rounders, The Cincinnati Kid, Twenty-One and some other movies listed here https://casinority.com/10-best-casino-movies/ - it's my favorite topic.

Have you seen The Drop? I didn't know what I was getting into... James Gandolfini, Tom Hardy (who is amazing in this movie) & and Noomi Rapace are quietly intense. A quiet bartender gets robbed, rescues an abused puppy and ends up entangled with murderous Chetchen mobbies

Worth your time
