Horrendous. The Villiage at the end? WTF? The craftsmanship was bad too. Just all around bad, but all around liked by people because it's Will Smith.

(older movie) Meet Joe Black = A God Damned work of art. Absolutely stunning movie. Some people might find it boring though as it's a pretty long, character driven movie. But after seeing it for the second time, I'm sold.
Haven't seen it, but I want to

Rescue Dawn = Decent flick, great acting.
Yep. Slow, and painful to watch because it's so real. Very good though.

We Own the Night = Not very good
Kind of what I heard. Never got around to it.

Alien Vs Predator Req = Not nearly as bad as the first AvP. Brutal movie, as it should be.
Don't have any interest.

Enchanted = Cute. Could have been funnier if it had catered more to adults like Shrek and some of the other more recent kids movies.
Not interested.

The Mist = Surprisingly good.
Yep, I wrote a defense for it in the lounge somewhere.

Lions for Lambs = Obviously a one sided debate, but a good film with some great actors. Streep is basically an acting god.
One sided, for sure. I disagree that it's a good film. It does have good actors and some signs of good craftsmanship but it's propaganda killed it for me.

American Gangster = Has its moments. Good film, but the genre is getting old for me. The last 20 minutes of the film seems rushed and forced.
Couldn't be more opposite. The last 30 minutes were the MOVIE. The movie essentially started when he pegged Denzel on the board. The 2 hours before that was no sense. A Gangster like Entourage show. Except no humor and boring as hell. Plus the multiple boom mic shows and things. Awful.

Lars and Real Girl = Undeniably one of the best films of the year. It's this years' Little Miss Sunshine.
I'm mad I haven't seen it yet. However, I'm pretty sure this years LMS is Juno. And it's killing LMS in box office take.

Good Luck Chuck = Not enough Alba in it to justify putting up with it. Plenty of sex and TnA, but basically a paint by number comedy that isn't funny.
Alba is fine to look at. But she's a mediocre - at best - actor. I haven't seen this flick and don't really want to.

3:10 To Yuma = Very good. I'm starting to think Bale is the next Norton. Everything he touches is gold.
I liked it even if it was a WEstern ( I don't like westerns). And yes, Bale is like Norton in that everything they touch is worth the price of admission (so far).

Have you seen Equilibrium? It's fantastic and one that catapulted him.


Superbad = I laughed all the way through it. Very sophomoric and stupid, but given the right time and place, it's very fun... McLovin... That's awesome.
Of course.
I'll add:

Juno: This year's best comedy and flick, in my opinion.
No Country for Old Men: Talk about craftsmanship and cinematography. Sheesh this movie was fantastic.
National Treasure 2: Not nearly as good as the first, but a fun ride nonetheless. Just check your mind at the door.
