i am surprised at how many quality movies michael douglas has been in. he is an actor that i take for granted. i assume a movie he does is going to probably be a good one. although he does seem to play a similar character in lots of his movies. one movie he is not the same role in...is wonder boys. if you haven't seen it, give it a shot. great movie. great cast.

mark, it might just be my favorite clint eastwood movie. and he's done gobs of great ones. although...from this point on...he might be typecast as a crotchety old man. he does that real well.

Kick Ass was incredible. There should be more foul-mouthed eleven-year-olds in movies

I was excited to watch The Road after reading the book a few years ago. I didn't think I enjoyed the book. It's minimalist style, no punctuation, nearly no conversation, really...but by the end it had a tight grip on me without me even realizing it. And I thought it would be an easy movie to pull off.

I was wrong. A 100 minute movie just didn't have enough time to get me to care about these people. Viggio's performance was great. He's one of the few actors that can relay meaning with just a look, no words. In fact, everyone was good in this. It just didn't have anywhere near the emotional impact that the book did.

Haven't seen The Road. Don't want to see it until I've had a chance to read it. Its been on my bookshelf for a couple years now.

Didn't see Kick A but there should always be more foul mouthed children in movies. They turn even a horrible movie tolerable.

Did anyone see Iron Man 2? What did they think?

Saw it and enjoyed it but thought it was a tad forgettable. This year has really been bad for movies. Haven't seen a new movie since UP last year that I could say I would watch again.
