Fighter and True grit if you haven't seen those.

No strings attached (saw with gf) is surprisingly funny.

You can pretty much bet dollars to doughnuts that if Seth Rogen's in it, it'll largely insult your intelligence but be good for some laughs.

We went and watched True Grit last weekend, and while I thought Jeff Bridges played his part well, I didn't care for it all that much-maybe because I kept comparing it the original-

Going out to see a moive is plain stupid.

1) Pay up to $15.00 ea to view said movie
2) Have to listen to idiots talking on their god damn cell phones
3) Having to see other idiots phones light up because they feel they need to text during movie... Then they have to talk to their buddy to catch up on what they missed while texting.
4) The obnoxious sound of people digging thru their popcorn containers is only surpassed by listening to people chew their fu ck ing popcorn with their mouths open.
5) freeking children and teenagers flapping the gums during the entire movie.

With the cost of going out to see a flick, it is cheaper to buy a blue ray version of the same movie and watch it at home on your very own super system (We all have them to watch sports on anyways) At home you can watch at whatever time you choose, Do not have to drive in traffic to get to movie theatre, wasting gas, time and wear and tear on your vehicle, waiting in line and paying high prices for junk food that you can have at home for 25% of the cost.

True. I've given up on going to the movies. People don't know how to act in public anymore. I've got a 60" Panasonic HD flat screen with theater sound. I'll wait until it comes out on DVD and pay $5 to watch it, and make my own popcorn with real butter for about fifty cents a bucket.

The Fighter and True Grit were both excellent films.

I think The King's Speech was well worth the money and time, and should (I hope) win best picture at the Oscars.

I thought it was pretty similar to the original.

But this one was directed more to the novel and they did a pretty good job of that. I liked Jeff Bridgers as Rooster Cogburn. I didn't much care for Matt Damon's part. I just can't ever see him in a western.

Thats all well and good for you, but people will continue to go to the movies because its a cheap form of "going out." From a social viewpoint, humans feel the need to "go out" to support/nourish a semblance of "having a life" A movie requires a drive/a few hours of time/ and is usually an enjoyable form of entertainment. People usually combine this with a dinner to make an entire night out of it so that, on monday, when they are at the water coolor and someone asks what they did over the weekend, they dont have to respond with "nothing"

ok i see alot of people saying The Fighter, but is it really that good? I had a feeling about the movie before it came out, then I seen the satire websites that show the "if movie poster told the truth" and this is what they have



dont get me wrong i like the wrestler, but im glad I watched at home instead of shelling out money at theater. So is it along those lines of a movie?

Anyone comparing the new True Grit to the old one negatively have to be looking at it with some sort of nostalgia. The only differences between the new one and the old one were positive. Every single part was acted better than the original (maybe not Ned Pepper, Duvall played that part very well), the plot was more true to the book, screenplay was written better and obviously the effects were better. Glen Campbell and Kim Darby were absolutely terrible in the original.

wow, you have a ****ty movie theater where you go. Other than the $15 tag since we do imax and sometimes 3d, none of the others apply, and we have lots of kids and teenagers at our movie theaters I go too

I just want to be entertained for a few hours so it takes a lot for me to dislike a movie, but I almost walked out of the Green Hornet. It was not funny at all.

We agree on the Mattt Damon thing, and the girl wasn't even close to as good as Kim Darby portrayed it-

Well the Fighter is a true story and the Wrestler is not, so if anything the Wrester is "The Fighter, but with wrestling". Also I think Wahlburg was pitching the movie before the Wrestler was even around.

There is no way, that I can tell, that anyone in their right mind could watch both versions and have this opinion. If you like horrible overacting with bad timing then Glenn Campbell and Kim Darby were better. Otherwise Matt Damon (though he wasn't great in his role by any means) and especially Hailee Steinfeld were infinitely better. Jeff Bridges acted circles around John "I play every part exactly the same" Wayne as well.

Not to mention that they are in no way similar types of stories.
