Went tot he movies today and it was very very funny movie.  We always sit right up the back in the middle, just me love that sit. Well this family was sitting infront of us and I could not stop laughing(not out loud)  during the moive the guy was using sign language at one of the people.  I know some might not find it funny but in the dark I did.

Not yet.

Been to Ice Age3 in 3D.   3D was good but didn't think movie was as good as the first two.

I've just been to see District 9 this evening.

Awesome special effects — what else could you expect from Weta Workshops and Wingnut Films?

I can see why it is the highest grossing movie in the world last week and this.

Definitely worth seeing if you are into a bit of si-fi.

We went and saw The Hangover.  It's been out some 6 weeks so we thought it would be really quiet.  Not so.  There were 2 theatres in the complex running it, both full to capacity.

It's bloody funny.

I think I might go and see Gaylene Preston's movie “Home By Christmas” in about an hour and a half.

It's one of those nights where I've got nothing planned, so why not?

I live only about 6-7 minutes walk from the local multiplex cinema.

It's cheap too....only $12.50....half the price you get stung over the hill in Wellington!

Just saw Ironman 2 the other day. It wasn't as good as the original but then again IMO apart from Terminator 2 no sequel is as good as the original.

“Home By Christmas” was a bit different than what I expected.

It was possibly a wee bit arty-farty, but it was well done.

It was just different, that's all.

Still worth seeing though.

Maybe I'll go and see a bit of full-on action tomorrow for something different.

“The Book Of Eli” starring Denzel Washington is on at the moment.

It looks like it might have plenty of action and gratuitious violence.

Just the thing for a bit of Sunday evening entertainment....Cool

Go and check out Ridley Scott's “Robin Hood”.

Although Russell Crow can be a bit of a boofhead sometimes (in real life), when he is acting a role like the one he plays in this movie, he is superb.

It is a brilliant action movie, but it's not quite what you would expect. It's about the story behind how Robin Hood (and his band of merry men) ended up as outlaws. The movie ends just as the traditional Robin Hood story begins.

Definitely worth seeing.

I've seen a few good movies lately - ROBIN HOOD does not appeal to me - bring back Sherwood Forest. I don't like Russell Crowe at all.

DATE NIGHT ****
BLIND SIDE *****
LETTERS TO JULIET ***
HOME FOR CHRISTMAS **

I want to see BOY - just hasn't been screening at the right times for me.

From the Los Angeles Times....

Tired of blockbusters: Moviegoers want Adam Sandler, not ‘Pacific Rim

HORSEY on HOLLYWOOD

By DAVID HORSEY | 5:00AM - Thursday, July 25, 2013



PITY the poor studio executives. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars giving moviegoers what they think they want — summer blockbusters with big stars, big explosions and out-of-this-world themes — and who makes all the money? Adam Sandler with another flick filled with childish behavior and flatulence jokes.

Los Angeles Times reporters Steven Zeitchik and Amy Kaufman dissected the phenomenon in a recent story. They found that box-office receipts this summer are 14% higher than last year, but the numbers are being driven to a great degree by small-scale movies, such as “The Conjuring”, “Despicable Me 2” and Sandler’s “Grown Ups 2”, not by the cinematic behemoths, such as “Pacific Rim”, “The Lone Ranger”, “After Earth” and “White House Down”.

Since May, there has practically been a blockbuster a week. “Man of Steel” has done well; apparently film fans never tire of a new iteration of the grand old Superman story, just as they never seem to tire of Batman. “Iron Man 3” has been a big hit too; maybe because the character is reaching the legendary level of the caped crusaders, maybe because Robert Downey, Jr. brings such a quirky, hip sensibility to the role or maybe because it was pretty much the first blockbuster out of the blocks in 2013.

Most of the others are still a long, long way from making their budget back, though “World War Z” may get there, thanks to star Brad Pitt’s tireless promotional efforts. All these movies aren’t terrible — “Pacific Rim”, in particular, has unexpected depth for an Earth-in-peril epic, thanks to the skill of director Guillermo del Toro — but a blockbuster used to be a singular event. Now, ticket buyers may be getting too much of a good thing.

When a blockbuster hits the theaters weekend after weekend — and, especially, when several of them have such similar themes — it just may be that a fatigue sets in and folks going to the movies lose interest in seeing another special-effects extravaganza. Apparently, there are times all they really want to watch is a familiar group of comedians acting gloriously immature.

Let’s hope that doesn’t give the studio execs any brilliant ideas about filling the screens next summer with comedies aimed at 14-year-old boys. Oh, wait, that’s already been done.

I would say the all movies are down in numbers paying an insane amount to view them. Not when you can have the surround sound HD quality in your living room from a downloaded movie. If actors weren't so greedy and demanding millions of dollars just to pretend to be someone else for a few months, maybe the films wouldn't cost so much to make and the cost to watch them would be reduced dramatically, bringing more back to the theaters.

Do you rip-off the film company by STEALING the movie?
