Saw horrible bosses tonight, absolutely hilarious. Jennifer Anistion was great(and yes, what WAS brad thinking?) And I enoyed Jasilon Day as well
Bronson was a good film but i got the feeling they were ripping off CHOPPER an Aussie flick that came out about 6-7 years ago, maybe more.

My youngest daughter who's and pretty delicate emotionally watched all the Harry Potter movies without problem.  I was a little disappointed with the Transformer's movie as it would of been something I would of liked to have shared with my two sons who've I let see the others. 

And anyone figure out how to clone Jennifer Aniston yet?

My daughter (just turned 11) has seen them all as they were released. No issues. Though at 6, her favourite movie was LoTR, so sensitivity wasn't an issue.

I really like Chopper ( great performance from Eric Bana ) but I don't think Bronson borrowed too much from it, Nicolas Winding Refn has a fairly distinctive style. Maybe it's just due to the prison setting and black-ish humor in both?

I think you may have meant to quote Carlton though.

Yeah, my daughter is 9 and she really liked LOTR and the first 4 or 5 Potter flicks, though I didn't let her see the LOTR until I knew she was ready for it. I hope BMan is kidding...

Tigger, I was laughing (well,snickering to be accurate) at the expense of Floyd.

It's a sad world we live in to absolutely protect kids because we are paranoid. There is protecting them for which I agree, but then, there's having them live in a cocoon/bubble. It can't be good for them when they grow older.  Who knows how many of lifes moments or sensations or whatnot they are missing due to paranoid parents. Not a shot at Floyd, but it all just blows my mind.

I don't know if you saw the John Stewart show last night ( well the one I did anyways about the British shenanigans ) but yeah...

"Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

I’ll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
They're one in the same, I must isolate you…
Isolate and save you from yourself"

One of those lyrics that ( kind of ) defenestrates the window pane, if prose can really emerge from such a thing.

It's sitting at a cool 20% on Rotten Tomatoes. Basically all critics are calling it "Alvin & the Chipmunks 2".

Friends With Benefits was one of my favorite films of the year so far, really funny and danced around the usual cliche's with some panache.  It was refreshing to see two people in Kunis and Timberlake who had sizzling chemistry at times too.

Thanks for sharing that.
No worries. I'm glad someone could appreciate it.

Finally saw Thor, and like everyone else it seems, I was pleasantly surprised.   Some great performances, especially from Anthony Hopkins and the dude that played Loki.   A little over the top at times, but they are ostensibly divine royalty.   Some extra drama is to be expected.

Planet of the Apes was amazing, close to tears a couple of times, laughed at times and was fascinated by the action.

Solid 8.5/10 for it's genre.

Wow, completely opposite opinion.  I thought it was awful and I liked Captain America (not a great movie, but a decent enough action flick with a reasonable segway into the Avengers for next year).
