Recently I’ve seen:
Fools Gold. I liked it. Well, at least I didn’t hate it. It was an easy-enough watch and all I really want my rentals for is to help me through my workout.
Slippery Slope. A comedy about a feminist who takes on a job direction a porn to pay for her feminist movie to go to cannes. BORING. Predictable, slow. Yes, a few nice shots of naked women (which never hurts a movie) but it did not do its job of helping me get through my work out.
Definitely, Maybe. A romantic comedy starring Ryan Reynalds, Elizabeth Banks, Isla Fischer and Rachel Weisz. I enjoyed it, but then I’m a sucker for RomComs. I was only a little surprised by the ending.
Rambo 2008. Fast paced, predictable action movie. I won’t say I disliked it, but I’m hard-pressed to say I enjoyed it. I was much younger when the others came out and I’m sure that helped me enjoy them more. Still, as I have said, it helped me through the workouts.
The Forbidden Kingdom - Just started it. So far I’m enjoying it. I missed it in the theaters. I think I was in the hospital or recovering when it came out. It will do a fine job helping me finish my work outs.
At the cinema:
Eagle Eye**. Mediocre action flick. Major plot flaws for those who pay attention to such things. My real commentary would be a spoiler, so I will leave that out for now.
Ghost Town: As mentioned upthread, I’m a sucker for RomComs and this was one. I’ve mentioned elsewhere that I didn’t think Gervais could pull of the lead, but he did OK. I give it a C+, maybe even a B-, which is to say that I liked it well enough.
