    Absolutely hated this film.

    I went in with low expectations, and I wasn't disappointed.

    We saw Battleship over the weekend - I only watched it for the lovely Mr. Skarsgard. The script was downright awful in places (who wrote that crap and how did the actors keep straight faces?) but I did smile when the vets cranked up the Missouri.

    After that we watched Savages, an Oliver Stone story about small-time California marijuana growers involved in a hostile takeover by a Mexican cartel. There was a good bit of violence throughout, but some pretty good acting. I liked it.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    I watched this one ON Demand and enjoyed it. I knew exactly what I would be getting so I was not disappointed. It was actually better than I had expected. Rihannon was a total waste, she can't act. Loved the use of current and older vets, one of the best parts of the film.

    Looper - Good sci-fi. However, there was some stuff I was uncomfortable with given the recent tragedies in CT.

    I really want to see Savages. Need to add that to my list.

    And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly...usually on a broomstick.
    We are flexible like that.

    Oh, she was beyond bad. She should stick to singing for sure.

    I saw Looper recently as well. I found it somewhat boring and a bit of a disappointment.

    JohnnyK - I will agree that I didn't think it lived up to all the hype. There certainly was a lot of "this is the most amazing movie ever" publicity about it when it first came out and I wouldn't put it at that level for sure.

    We watched Looper the other night and while it wasn't nearly as good as I expected, Joseph Gordon-Levitt wowed me. I think he nailed Bruce Willis' tics and mannerisms. As for the actual storyline I was expecting more.
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didnít hear me call shotgun.
