    Any reason or just not your thing? I can definitely see why some people wouldn't like it, but it was very interesting to me.

    • So I was given a choice tonight, either Hancock or Wanted...needless to say, I chose Wanted.

      It wasnt as bad as I expected, however it wasnt as good as it could have been. It had a ton of uber cool (if incredibly unrealistic) action sequences, and soem great bullet time moments. McAvoy is believable and charismatic enough as the main character, and Angelina is super sexy and her regular sultry self even without a ton of lines. Morgan Freeman disappointed me, as he sleepwalks through the role, basically reprising his character from Lucky Number Slevin. Overall, I was surprised with how much I enjoyed the new age action, however dont go in expecting anything incredible plot or writing wise. No subtext or messages, just straight shoot em up action. Decent popcorn flick, but nothing more. Id give it a 6.5/10, maybe a 7 based on the fact that you do in fact see some angelina nudity (although its a rear shot, no boobs :( )

      • I saw Hancock tonight; not necessarily compelled by any reviews or what I'd seen in trailers. I have to confess, shamefully, that I was pulled aboard the Will Smith Indy Day Hype Machine.
        With that being said, I was pleasantly surprised. The acting was good; the plot, shrouded in so much mystery, turned out to actually be somewhat compelling without featuring a substantial villain.
        There were definite holes in the story and it was too short for my liking. But I liked it as a superhero movie that managed to not take itself too seriously while also weaving a lot of intrigue into the tale.
        8/10 in my book. Go if you're a student, It's worth 6.50.

          Not by me. He is my favorite actor by a long shot.

                Aaron Eckhart? If so, he has been in a few movies lately. One of which I recently downloaded, however ironically, its name is eluding me.

                • I think I am going to start reviewing movies I see.

                  Movies I saw recently:

                  The Man Who Wasn't There (Dir: Joel and Ethan Coel) - It was all right. It was a nice tribute to the noirs of old, but nothing more. This part is especially disappointing when you see that the directors are the Coen brothers. I would give this movie a 7.3

                  The Namesake (Dir: Mira Nair) - Not that good of a movie, to be honest. I was looking forward to an indian setting (I am indian) and Kal Penn, but the movie was just so fast paced. My friend would leave and when he would come back, Kal Penn would be at a different stage in life. I did enjoy the movie just because it was a first generation indian guy living in America (like me). I will give it a 6.4

                  • Went to HMV yesterday, they have brand new movies for $6 a piece, its pretty sweet...so of course, i bought a ton of them. I added Natural Born Killers, The Order, Dodgeball, American Psycho, City of God, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Stay, and The Machinist to my collection. Looking pimp!

                    • I dont know why, but the edition and case of a movie matters to me alot. I dont like getting the cheap single disc cases. They just look so flimsy and stuff. Most of my movies are actually special editions.

                              He lost a lot of weight since those movies.

                                Yeah he did but, he was just plain old creepy looking back then. Pailer and his hair was a little different. He is still the man, though. I'm a big fan.
