Limitless:  Based on the novel (The Dark Fields) by Alan Glynn; Limitless tells the story of a down and out author Eddie who takes a pill which allows him to use 100% of his brain rather than 20%.  After taking the pill he is able to finish his novel with ease, trade/manipulate the stock market to his advantage and pretty much do whatever he wants.  However, he begins suffering from withdrawls as his supply runs out and is hounded by the police and mobsters.  I was pretty surprised by the film for the most part I thought that Bradley Cooper couldn't act but he did a decent enough job as the leading man.  Abbie Cornish and De Niro really only get around 10-15 minutes of screen time.  The film is solid and features some alright visuals.  The films ending differs from the novel and some people might not like it, but the ending fits well enough with the film.

I saw Hangover 2 the other week. It was funny as fuck and that asian guy had a bigger role too, which I liked because he's the funniest out of all of them. Doesn't beat the first one but comes pretty close.

X-Men: First Class - I just got back from watching this.  Gotta say it was so much better than the last x men movie 'last stand'; Thank god Brett Ratner didn't get to direct this.  The highlight of the film was Michael Fassbender (Hunger, Inglorious Basterds) he killed it,  Kevin Bacon was also awesome playing the film's main villian.  The bad was Beast looked stupid, and January Jones was terrible overall.  With that said the film was lots of fun and a good summer action/super hero flick.

Kinda looks like Guy Pierce, the dude that dies in the beginning while disarming the bomb.

That's not Guy Pierce. It's a good movie anyway though.

Saw X-Men First Class last night and it was an entertaining movie to say the least. Wolverine made one appearance that was pretty righteous.

Nobody seemed to mind about the mom though

Bridesmaids -?  Finally went and checked this out.?  I was pleasantly surprised;?  It had the perfect mix of humor and heart.?  I gotta tell you I didn't think it would be as raunchy/take some jokes as far as it did (the Food poisoning scene immediately comes to mind.)?  I thought Kristen Wiig was great, but Melissa McCarthy stole the show.
I was surprised too, it was really well done. My girlfriend and I were laughing throughout the movie, especially at the fat girl (forgot her name).

Super 8 is a big, steaming piece of festering CGI dogshit. I don't know what I expected, but it sure wasn't two hours of predictable, corny, gratuitous pseudo-drama without a smidgen of suspense or anything at stake. Barf barf barf, barf barf barf, poop poop barf.

I loved it, reminded me a lot of 'The Assassination of Jesse James', very slow pace, voice overs, beautiful music and camerawork

Definitely something different in a new world of CGI garbage, as mentioned above with Super 8, which I still want to see.

Got me very hyped for The Tree of Life too, same cinematographer as The New World, same composer as The Kings Speech and Benjamin Button

I was so bored I watched all the Star Wars movies. I couldn't believe when I was younger I thought episodes 2 and 3 were better than 4, 5, and 6.

"Your sacrifice completes my sanctuary of 1000 testicles"

 If you haven't seen it, i recommend watching El Topo.

Caught the end of Silence of the Lambs when my roomie was watching and watched Hannibal after that. The nightvision scene gave me chills when I was walking down the hall in the dark ha ha. Hannibal was okay, kind of slow but the ending was so fucked up that it really saved the movie for me. Took me a while to realize the hot redhead was supposed to be the same character from Lambs.
