I have not watched a movie in so long

I did catch World War Z a couple of months ago though, and it was ALRIGHT. I am not familiar with the book at all, so nothing turned me off in that regard. I am just so damn tired of the zombie aspect of movies and games... it didn't hook me too much.

Its really fun to go out with friends and watch movies at least once or twice a month! I would highly recommend Gravity, its something anyone would enjoy!

Oblivion... I thought it was a GREAT movie. Not a classic, but a great movie nonetheless. 8/10

World War Z... having read the book, this movie was nothing but a let down. They flirted with what the book had to say so many times, but then said to hell with it and did their own thing. I think the World War Z book would best be a multiple part mini-series....maybe something AME or HBO would pick up. 7/10

Pacific Rim... as soon as I saw Charlie Day, I knew it was an absurd movie. It was good, thoughtless, action, but ultimately left me disappointed. 6/10

That being out of the way, you and I are spot on when it comes to Man of Steel, Star Trek and Iron Man 3. My wife is a HUGE Iron Man fan and thought that the third installment was great... we have had many arguments over how shitty I thought it was
Hehe! Pacific Rim for me was just, freakin' awesome! I am a sucker for robots, lol!

Watched Get the Gringo! It was really good! 8/10

Well next up are Thor 2, Hunger Games 2 and Hobbit 2! Lol three 2's!

I've been on a huge pinball kick since Pinball Arcade came to the PC, so I've been watching some documentaries. The one I watched last was "Special When Lit", which came out in 2009. It kind of shows that most pinball fans are a bit peculiar, but they're certainly interesting. Some are so into pinball, that they own over 50 machines. It's crazy!

If you're into some real mind blowing action, with a little story! Also this is a completely new take on Superman so its gonna be a hit or a miss foryou!

And IF you are into comic book heroes then you should watch it cause Man of Steel 2 will team Superman with Batman and Wonder Woman!

So... I didn't get to see Rush in theaters, but I'd like to see it now that it's been released at some point. It's no Thor, but it should be a good watch.

Everyone I know who has watched it has said that it is one of the best movies to come out this year!

So definitely worth a watch..

I'm a little surprised at that, but glad to hear it. I wish people had the same reaction to CBGB, because that's one I was really looking forward to.

So I ended up watching Pineapple Express, which someone told me I should do before watching This Is The End. I'll be watching that one soon. Pineapple Express was pretty much my type of movie, pretty hilarious.
