    Also it has received great reviews, so I'm sure it will do very well at the box office. Not much out now anyways since audience #'s for Planet of the Apes, Transformers, and Lucy will likely die down.

    Looking forward to Expendables 3 and TMNT (likely won't be good, but when I was a kid I loved watching the older movies and TV series).

    Rush surprised me. I thought I would hate the movie but love the racing scenes and it started off pretty cheasy but I really got sucked in by Nicky Lada's strory. His character is the far more interesting one and Daniel Bruhl is a fantastic actor whether in German, French or English. He's like a poor man's Christoph Waltz. Ironically, the racing scenes ended up being a weakness of the film for me. Too short and chopilly put together to really get invested in although I did enjoy the scene where Nicky Lada races in the Italian's guy's car to impress his girl.

But all 30 teams have to stay agile, and have to understand that we're dealing with human beings, and these assets to organizations are human and change and evolve. I think what we've tried to do is become more flexible and agile, and to sustain championships is to build from within."

    Come on Bartolo. Sound is OK if you're watching quiet, non-action movies, but they are noticeably shit when it gets loud.

    Normally not a fan of crossovers, but I'd watch the shit out of this.

    I want to see it just for the sake of seeing it, though my expectations aren't high.

    The animated TMNT which came out I think back in 2007 wasn't that bad.

    I remember having the pizza thrower. Ruined a few friendships with that as a kid.

    Watched Interstellar tonight in IMAX. I'm a huge Christopher Nolan fan, though this was disappointing. Really overhyped.

    I disagree. I think it lived up to the hype (to a degree). Is it worthy of the 9.1 it currently has on IMDB? Probably not, but it isn't far off from there. I anticipate it regressing to an 8.8 or 8.7 rating.

    It's a fresh, unique plot that has some of the most powerful moments I've seen on the screen in years. The visuals are right up there with Gravity (if not better). The acting is top notch (MM keeps his impressive streak going).

    If anyone goes to see this, I hope you're not expecting an action movie. It's a slow paced sci-fi flick that requires a lot of thinking.The plot/lingo is fairly complex making it the kind of movie you have to pay close attention to.

    I'd give it more a 6.5 or 7 out of 10. Agreed, I saw it in IMAX and the musical score was excellent as well as the visuals were stunning. Even when using complete silence in some scenes in space was great. There were definitely very powerful moments in the film.

    Just don't rank it up there with films like Inception, The Prestige, Insomnia and Memento. It was alright, though it was way overhyped leading up to its release. It's nothing groundbreaking. The story was meh, and the acting outside of MM, JC and MC wasn't anything to write home about - I hate Anne Hathaway, she's awful. I don't know - maybe I need to see it again (always have watched Christopher Nolan movies twice at theatres), though overall I wasn't that amused with this film. It was decent, though I didn't walk out of the theatres saying "Wow this film was amazing" as I did when watching his other films.
