How many of you watch movies regularly? I do but I'm sort of picky, I
am not really big on comedies for instance. Anyway, I thought I would
start a thread where we can either ask about movies we wish to see or
review movies we've seen for others' benefit. I'll get us started by
asking about " Leatherheads " starring George Clooney. It's a comedy
which makes me skeptical to start with plus I know it's a few years
old but I recently bought it on DVD really cheap. However, it has sat
on the shelf for months now and I haven't watched it yet. Anyone seen
it and if so, what did you think?

its a good movie, its based on a true story, and its pretty good, i personally could do without renee zellwegger, but overall its ok, not a hilarious comedy, more of clooney making fun of himself, which i do enjoy
i would give it a b-

I think I will watch it over this holiday weekend sometime. I usually
like about anything Clooney does. I agree with you about Rene Zellwegger too, the only movie I can recall liking with her in it was that Nicole Kidman film " Cold Mountain ". Thanks for the info!

Well I watched it last night and it was ok, I wasn't really overtly
crazy about it one way or the other though.

I have never seen it and to be honest, I have no desire to. I will
tell you about a couple movies I did watch over the weekend though:
The Lincoln Lawyer and Super 8 and both were really quite good. The
Lincoln Lawyer stars Matthew McConaughey w/ Josh Lucas, Ryan Phillippe, Marisa Tomei, Bryan Cranston, John Leguizamo, and William H. Macy in a really good crime drama with a good plotline.
Super 8 is JJ Abrams ( director of tv's " Lost " )/ Steven Spielberg's sci fi / horror, coming - of - age drama and was also
really good.

Insidious is a really good movie if you like Suspense/Horror.

I recall ads for that but don't remember the details. I like psychological horror and suspense but I'm not much a fan of the gore
horror genre, it's just cheesy to me personally. I get the impression
Insidious is not a gore film though.

You're right it not a gore film. It's more dealing with the supernatural. I liked it very well.

What's the name of the film from earlier this year w/
Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro..where the guy takes
a pill and it somehow changes his intellect or his reality, something. I'm not sure because I haven't seen it and though it's name escapes me at the moment
it's a movie I've been wanting to see.

"Precious" was a good movie. Very sad.

Yes NJS, that's it. I would like to see it and the Leonardo Decaprio / Martin Scorcese film " Shutter Island " both.

the new twilight movie is really good. i am not a twilight fan by any means but my 16 year old daughter and her 2 best friends practically drug me to see this movie the first day that it came out in theaters and i loved it. i went and saw it again yesterday with my sister (another twilight fan like my daughter and her friends) and she loved it too. i have not seen the first 3 twilight movies but i am going to rent them and watch them all now.

I have never seen any of the Twilight movies franchise myself and admit that I've no desire to. But to each their own, of course. I
know everyone says they're good and entertaining but I am quite a
picky person when it comes to movies, among other things. Not saying I wouldn't watch them at some point though, just not currently interested in doing so I guess. Just out of curiosity,
aren't they geared more for the teen / adolescent crowd really?

Shutter Island is a very good psychological thriller. I have watched it two or three times.

I agree. I thought Breaking Dawn was the best one of the Twilight movies, and I did not understand the hype at first, either. The movies is surprisingly good. It's worth the time and money.

It's really good. I thought it would be but it even surprised me. Let me know what you think after you've watched it.
