I've seen the 1960s version of the Magnificent Seven, is there a new one out?

Just watched it, didn't like it. It's a western along the lines of Unforgiven, which I didn't like either. Casey Affleck was good though.

If you want a Western get The Magnificent Seven.

No, I was talking about the original.

Without a doubt one of the best cowboy flicks ever. I just saw it again for the 12th time a few weeks back when I was stuck in PA

I own the DVD special edition and have seen it hundreds of times. Just incredible.

Actually, check out The Seven Samurai. It is the Kurasawa film that The Seven Samurai was based on.

Best modern Western? Open Range with Kevin Costner. I grew up out there. The cinematography is awesome. Reminds me of home.

I saw "Death Sentence"...rented on pay per view... (fiance hates that option :backRoll: ) I actually thought it was a good movie. Im not used to seeing Kevin in such a "chilling" role but he was great.

How about "The Invasion"...With Nichole Kidman...I loved that movie (That was from Netflix- fiance says "we got netflix..why do you rent over 10 movies a month from pay per view) Um... :| Because they hit pay per view before I can get it through Netflix.. :rolleyes2:

Oh..and Gone Baby Gone...(another pay per view :shock: ) I was so into that movie and the ending SUCKED.

"Vacancy"....I expected more from this movie...It appears to be a rather low budget movie and it does have it's good moments but it was another movie that was going along and then IT ENDED...

OH YEAH...."MICHAEL CLAYTON"....please pass on this movie unless it is FREE...even at FREE I wouldnt recommend it....This movie bounced around so much that I was slapping myself for another "pay per view" movie that was "clearly" confusing and well.....sucked....

I am anxiously awaiting "Cloverfield"...

That's my review of the most recently "paid" for movies that stick in my head..

Resident Evil: Extinction

:shock: It was SOOOOO good! If you liked the other ones, you'll love this one! A couple of good ol' fashioned scary moments that made me jump and a very promising ending for more movies in the series.

I just signed up for Netflix the end of last week and I'm so happy i did! We saw a stupid movie that they compared to Napoleon Dynamite called Shark vs Eagle. Horrible. More of a girls movie. My boyfriend was pissed at me that I made him watch it :rolleyes2:

i got The Goonies and watched it with Nicky last night. It's a classic family movie, isnt it? We liked it. I was happy to have something that we could watch together that wasnt a cartoon :)

I have War here (with Jason Stathom. holy firggin yum.) and Maxed Out is coming today. It sounds like its a documentary about how we are addicted to credit cards and why we suck. Awesome. They suggested I get it when I clicked that I liked Fast Food Nation.

I'm a Netflix junkie too!!! Don't forget to check out their "watch instantly" section.

I'm in the midst of watching a very disturbing documentary called "Jesus Camp." It's about a camp for evangelical children. It's actually very creepy and disturbing - there are 7 year old children falling to the floor, speaking in tongues, etc. They're saying how Harry Potter would have been murdered in the old testament because he's a warlock. Very good documentary, but scary.

Watch it without sound. Brings to mind some of the old black and white vids of the "Sieg Heil, Hitler!".

King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. Outstanding.

Michael Moore Hates America. About as much of a "documentary" as the dreck Moore produces but presents a nice opposing viewpoint.

I sent Maxed Out back without watching it, as well as War. I was sick of them sitting here and the kids wanted their movies to come! I think Gone Baby Gone is coming as is Juno. My 13 year old wants to see Juno. I'm watching it first to see what its like. There are songs on their soundtrack aimed towards teens and she likes a couple of them. Obviously she is going to want to watch the movie. We'll see.
