Saw some great movies the last couple of days:

Se7en: Pretty good film, the pairing between Pitt and Freeman the standout

Fargo: Another Coen brothers classic. More than 10 years before NC4OM and still just as enjoyable.

Looper: Not much to say, think everyone's watched this now

Get the Gringo: Gibson was great. Film was great also, despite not being to understand half of it due to lack of subtitles!

Yeah, same here. That's why I was asking if they were worth my time.

Based on 1 person's opinion? :P
Anyway, just had a look on RT, some pretty low scores there: 31, 16, 30 and 27.

I think i'll pass

If you enjoy empty popcorn action flicks and have spare time then the first one and the fourth (Awakening) Underworld films are fair.

At least the first one gets bogged down in trying to establish a mythology and pacing suffers from a "drama" subplot. The last one has superwomen syndrome. I just got a surround sound system for Christmas so might have to revisit these because I'm sure they'd make good use of it. Let us know what you think.

Hey, I'm Danny DeVito. I was just re-watching the critically acclaimed movie, 'Twins'. Me and my old pal Arnold Schwarzenegger have some fantastic chemistry.
