Your Highness. Better than expected, not great but enjoyable for one viewing.
Captain America. Nice setup for Avengers.
I watched Your Highness yesterday. I felt the same. Watching Captain America now. I'll probably have to finish it tomorrow.

Merantau - I never heard of this one until the other day when I seen it was going to be on Showtime. A young kid goes on his rite of passage and he helps this young stripper get away from human traffickers. You know, it was pretty interesting watching a movie that had some similar ideas to the only screenplay I ever finished. This was a martial-arts movie with little drama and lots of fighting though. A lot different in that regard, but the human traffickers definitely reminded me of what I was going for in those scenes.
Has anyone seen 127 Hours? I thought I wanted to see it and I have it, but every time I go to watch it I'm like meh.
I guess I need some motivation to watch it.
Funny that's the same with me. I have it DVR'd for weeks now and every time I'm deciding what to watch I pass over it. It may be one of the things I DVR that I never watch and eventually delete to find room to DVR other things.
I have actually viewed a few movies lately. The highlight was "Super 8", which I thought did a great job of combining a well written and thrilling plot with some emotional depth to the characters. I was quite impressed, but I usually am with JJ Abrams movies. I also watched "Green Zone" a couple days ago, and it was okay. I remember when it came out that the previews made it look like Bourne in Iraq, but it was more of a political thriller than a spy type movie IMO. I also saw "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps", and was not impressed. The movie seemed to be building to something, but then it never delivered and instead the movie just sort of fizzled out. I felt that it just didn't have much focus (was it a story about Gordon Gekko or a story about the financial collapse?), and Oliver Stone went more than a little over the top with some of the visuals he used in the movie, they are the type of visuals that will make this film look very dated within about 5 years.
