Summer Movies...what are you gonna see?

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

A Serious Man was a surprisingly good movie. Not the biggest Cohen Bros fan (with the exception of No Country, Blood Simple & Fargo).

ZombieLand will be a staple in the Spider Cinema for years to come.

This Easter weekend will probably see How to Train your Dragon and Hot Tub..80's are cool now?!...jessh who'da thunk it? 8-)

2010 Movies...what'cha all watching?

Postby LotusBlossom » Mon Mar 29, 2010 2:00 pm

Ah...went to see Cop Out, it was alright. I'd wait for the rental. If you're going to see it in the 2nd run theatres and not the ones, I'd recommend that as well. Saw it at the old Granville 7 Cinemas..and felt a little sad going in there and not seeing the Capitol 6 across the way anymore.

Not bad, definitely had some funny moments and Bruce and Morgan actually had a good chemistry together.

Saw Iron Man 2 and Robin Hood.

Liked IM2 a lot. I found although RH had its moments, it was quite long and I could easily been fine watching it on a 52inch LCD over a 52ft silver screen.

Didn't really like Iron Man 2. Just a spew of far too many undeveloped plot threads, and another lame action sequence to finish. First was a fair bit better in my eyes.

Is anyone as excited as I am to watch the A Team movie?

I just want to see how much they adapted the TV Series into the movie. Trailers look good, but then again, lots of trailers look good.
I honestly can't wait, and I get eye candy in terms of Liam Neesom and Bradley Cooper.

Also gentlemen, you get Ms Jessica Biel.

Thoughts?

Kinda surprised they didn't ask T to make a cameo.

I MAY be wrong on this, but did I not hear he was offended they didn't ask him to reprise his role? If that's the case, more power to him for not appearing, because I would rather smirk at an elderly Mr.T trying to relive the past than some UFC dolt I don't care about.

Toy Story 3 was a great ending to the trilogy (assuming they end it at 3). If you liked the other two, then you should see this one.

Watched "Inception" tonight - and I was really impressed. It's one of those rare movies that keeps you thinking all the way through, but it also has a good amount of action to move things along - one of the best I've seen in years.

Good friend of mine said it was brilliant and completely different from anything else she's seen. Now that things have settled down with the wedding season, it would be nice to catch up on some summer flicks.
