    Terrible movie.

    I rather enjoyed Jumper. Its just one of those movies you can't think too much about it when you are watching otherwise you'll start questioning everything and ruin the experience.

    Earth to Night, the only good movies you've made have had Bruce Willis in them, stick with that.

    A complete and utter turd of a movie.

    [QUOTE=sourceworx;2577862]No. Nor do I plan to.

    That f*cking guy destroyed Darth Vader. I'll never watch anything he's in again.[/QUOTE]

    Glad to hear someone else feel the same way I do. He made Darth Vader go from one of the best bad a$$e$ of all time to a whiny emo b!tch.

    It had 1 special effect.
    No story.
    No characters.
    No actors.
    No plot.
    NOTHING.

    It made Transformers look like the Godfather.

    By the way, personally I think Unbreakable is his best, but that's only because Bruce Willis lived my dream in that movie. To one day wake up and find out that indeed you actually are a superhero. The Sixth Sense scores a big fat donut on the rewatchable scale, but Unbreakable's always a solid watch whenever it's on.

    ******************SPOILERS BELOW*********************
    Its the premise of the movie









    [COLOR="White"]The happening is plants reacting to human overpopulation by releasing toxins that make humans suicidal. It includes a scene in which Marky Mark apologizes to a plant.[/COLOR]


    Highlight to see

    [QUOTE=JStokes;2577836]I will be in attendance Saturday night.

    By the way, maybe folks don't love all his movies and I certainly don't.

    But to say they ALL suck?

    Well, that would include The Sixth Sense and if you didn't like or appreciate that one, well, what can I say?[/QUOTE]

    As soon as the kid said he saw dead people, I figured it out.

    It ruined it for me. But, I could see the appeal to others.

    Other then that, Unbreakable was decent...

    the rest...are absolutely horrible.

    This is sort of off-topic, but while we're talking movies, did anyone besides me love the Grindhouse flicks?

    I just saw them recently and loved them.

    I have a hard time considering any movie with Samuel L Jackson in it a "good movie" Pulp Fiction gets a pass of course.

    I thought Death Proof had too much dialouge with those girls.

    I loved Rose McGowan. Dunno why, I got a weird thing for her.

    I agree. Planet Terror was much better.

    But the scene where Kurt Russell slams on his brakes and Rose McGowan's face gets smashed into the dashboard is absolutely classic.

    The trailers for the other flicks looked great too.

    Are you kidding me? Favorite movie(s) of 2007. I will say though, watching them at home and in the theater were two totally different experiences, especially since you had the previews in between.

    I'd have to agree, other than these two:

    A Long Kiss Goodnight.

    Black Snake Moan.

    Its a real shame it flopped.

    Hollywood never takes risks and when it makes a genius move the public doesnt respond.

    [QUOTE=sourceworx;2577872]Ok I'll give you that.

    Joaquin as Johnny Cash was possibly the worst casting job I've ever seen.[/QUOTE]

    What was wrong with that performance? I thought it was very good. Who would have been better?

    The previews are the best! I'd love it if Rodriguez and Tarantino actually made those into feature films.

    Machete is supposedly getting made eventually.
