Pirates is fun, if peppered full of plot holes.
Insidious is scary until the last half hour at which point it goes to shit.
That's all I've seen of the recent crop.
If source code is still in though I doubt it is, it was excellent.

Insidious lost me the moment astral projection came into play.

There is simply no way to make astral projection scary, not now or ever.

What's scary is trying to come up with a reasonable explanation as to why the writer and director ever thought it could be a good idea to put that in. It felt way too similar to the climax of Poltergeist, but executed in a really shitty and derivative way.

Does anyone know of any good movies that are out right now? I have a movie date on Monday and I have no idea.

Bridesmaids is kind of funny, for a given value of Kristen Wiig.

"Source Code" is still playing at Fox Towers! I will look up Bridesmaids, though holy shit I might have a hard time convincing him on that one.

Thanks for the suggestions!
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

I liked "The Priest"--it was comic book-y, like most movies made from graphic novels can be, but still good enough for special effectiveness.  Pirates was Pirates--I heart Johnny Depp, no matter what shit role he's in, and there was enough wanking dialogue to keep you smirking if not belly-laughing.  And it was a good summer movie to take my kidlets to.

I tend to watch movies like Bridesmaids at home unless I'm on a "girls night out" and that's what the other chicks wanna see.  I like seeing the shoot-em-up ones on the big screen for effect.

My kid and husband saw that--looked kickass.  I think it's out of our theaters by now, though.

Thanks Faust! Did you think it was as good as Source Code? Better? Those are currently the movies on my list of contenders.

Yes its better then source code. Not that source code is bad, but Hanna is more polished, I won't say more if you're going to see either of them.

Awesome, thank you! :)

Why do Russian films have some guy talking over the audio track instead of subs? :argh!:
