Thank you, my wife and daughter thought 9 was super scary. Glad somebody agreed with me on it.

Scary? No.
I don't understand how anyone could think it was even halfway scary.

It was a good movie, but not scary, not jumpy, not gory, just full of suspense...and of course, a good surprise ending.

I saw Casino Royale last night.
Awesome Bond movie.

Nothing was cliche. Bond delivered his one liners perfectly, and the story was great.


One thing: I don't think I will ever see a movie in a theatre again. It's bad enough having to watch a movie with kids crying, a bunch of people who talk, let their cellphone ring, kick your chair, walk in front of you, and laugh at stupid shit. ...Try sitting in a theatre with pretty much only college guys. OMG It was unbearable. The theatre was never free of talking, and the guys laughed stupidly at anything and everything.

Awful experience.
Great movie.

My wife got me to go to a movie about a month or so ago. First time for me in almost 20 years. We saw Snakes on the Plane and like at home, I yelled and screamed at the people on the screen. LOL My wife kept hitting me and telling me to shut up. LOL

We have a large 52" High Def with a 1000 watt home theater system. Big room so the movie thing is just as good sitting in the house and when the kids are in bed, I don't have to worry about what I am wearing, or not. :wink:

Jo, I certainly understand the rude people and having a woman sit down in front of you with her hair so high she needs lights to warn off airplanes. LOL

I have a 42" and a 1000 watt surround system too.
No reason to ever go to the theatre again.

Do NOT waste your time and money on The Black Dahlia. It absolutely is the PITS! I bought the DVD on sale so I didn't break the bank on the purchase. Good thing, too...that dvd will go into the Good Will box when I clean out my closets! I highly recommend that you not even buy it when it's on PPV for $3.99! Awful acting, awful script...an awful movie.

Thank you for the tips on great movies. We are always looking for more goodies to keep in our mental library.

These do sound very good!

Just got an email about the movie, "No End In Sight" which says the WH is spooked by it. Apparently out now. If you have a chance, go see it and let us know if it is as good as the email says.
