Is anybody planning on seeing "The Great Gatsby"? I have the book but haven't read it (Got it for christmas a few years ago).
I read it in high school. Ask me about teh symbolism of the eyes of Dr Heisenberg or the blinking light on (?)East Egg or Montauk point..

What I am going to do is go to see Anything Goes. Roughly the same era, helluva lot more fun.

I'm not interested in Iron Man 3 (liked the first one, didn't like the second one much), but NIck and I are going to take the boys since it is pretty kid-friendly when it comes to the violence, because I think it'd be fun to go with the boys (I've never seen a movie with the kids). Nick'll pay for tickets, I'll pay for treats. Maybe Sunday or next weekend.
You get the short end of the finacial stick on that one.

Until they stop making money.

And in the catagory of sucky movies, the Iron Man series are not *that* bad.

I'll probably watch it after it comes out on DVD. I read the book in high school. Don't remember much about it, other than not a lot happens.
You know, there already was a movie made called the Great Gatsby with Robert Redford. sometimes in the mid-'70s. You guys probably weren't even born.

They don't do it for me, but they are well made, funny, entertaining, and the fights are done in a way that Nick can safely take his 6yo to see it. That's a win all around in my book. Avengers was surprisingly family-friendly. No swearing.

Worked for me. It's about people dressing up as pirates when they were gonna hear a sea captain give a speech. They didn't realize he was held hostage for several weeks by... Somali pirates...

Weird, I tried it at least three times and it was to a dead site.

They'll keep making Iron-Man and X-Man movies until they run out of material to mine from the comic books or they stop making money on them.

So far, most of the recent crop of Comic-Book-based movies have been pretty good if you're looking at them as comic books and not standalone movies. As standalone tales, some of them are better than others.

The only glaringly bad decision in any of them, for me, is the decision to cast Halle Berry as Storm/Ororo. Even an unknown would have been better than a woman who could in no way embody the physical characteristics and attitude of the character, even *if* she is a "name".

ugh. X-Men. Not Man.

I admit, however, that I did not see The Green Lantern because I heard it sucked if you are comic-geeky. See above opinion on casting Halle Berry as Storm/Ororo to determine if I am comic-geeky.

I find Halle Berry to be beautiful but not very bright and certainly not talented. Just competent at best. But beautiful for sure.

AND the way she trashed her child's father after they split turned me against her big time.
