Decisons decisions - Friday night movie

What do you recommend we see tonight?

Poll closed Apr 1, 2006.
  1. V for Vendetta - because it is quite good in a way you'll like

  2. V for Vendetta - because it has lots of action and video game appeal

  3. Thank You for Smoking - it is better than V

  4. something else

    I am of two-minds about seeing V for Vendetta; I have some trepidation about it. I am pretty gun-shy about action/adventure/sci-fi movies these days; lately I'm finding a tendency toward Ritalin-soaked video games with the story depth to match (not that I've shied away from high-action cartoon-like movies, but, well, I'm just not in the mood for that - especially considering the subject matter of this one - terrorist-as-hero).

    Maybe I just don't feel like seeing a film tonight that explores the usual Gen-X "This awful world would be better-off in Anarchy" theme.

    I would also like to see 'Thank You for Smoking', and wonder if I might be better entertained.

    Aye caramba. What a piss poor selection of movies in the theater these days. People should boycott movies until they actually start making movies worth watching. :rolleyes:

    You should rent a moive.

    Ali is a good movie.

    What kind of movie are you in the mood for?

    One worthy of my time. Other than that, I won't be too picky.

    (I'm thinkin' the two options I offered show a pretty god spread of my tastes.)

    So, I saw V. It was quite good. Not a ritalin fest.

    I had never heard of either before this thread. But, glad you had a movie to watch while PF was down. :biggrin:

    I heard about V for Vendatta and heard it was good, what is Thank You for Smoking?

    Oh no! You simply MUST see "The Hills Have Eyes." It's a remake of a failed B grade movie, so it's just GOT to be good!


    I can't even find a good movie to rent that I haven't already seen. Oh wait! I forgot. Bambi II just came out on DVD. Sheesh!
