So two people actually went out to see The Fall.

I've never even heard of it.

I'm reading up on it now and it looks interesting.

The Fall
I'm sure it's gone from the theaters by now. It must have lasted about a week...I got my butt to the local fancy schmancy "Sundance" movie theater the same week it opened, knowing how fast it would vanish. Very visually stunning but oddly enough, I liked the real-world story with Lee Pace and the little girl in the hosptial more. The rest was just window dressing.

PS, Barbados Slim is the reason I even knew that movie existed. Thanks! :andorian:

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

^ When I saw Lee Pace's name, I figured that he might have been one of the reasons you went to see it.

And yes, from the pictures, it does look like one of those 'visually stunning' type movies. The trivia bits are also pretty impressive. I've added this one to my "to see" list.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

Iron Man - Pretty Good
Hancock - Decent
The Incredible Hulk - Decent
Wall E - Semi Decent
Indiana Jones - Crap
Wanted - Crap
The Happening - What's worse than crap?

I've seen more than that (I've seen more movies this summer than I've seen in many years of my life combined, simply due to the woman I'm with), but those are the "big" ones.

Re: How's the Summer Movie Season going for you?

I'm amazed that people don't realize this is a SUMMER movie question.
The start of which is May(yes I know its still spring on the calendar) and that means Iron Man and any movie through Labor Day. Those are the dates Hollywood looks at as its "summer period".

So Forgetting Sarah Marshall (while you may like it) is not a response to "How's the summer movie season going for you". Several have done that and sorry it just bugs me. I liked it too, its just not a summer movie.

Maybe not in the US, but maybe it was released later in other countries?

Yeah, that's one of the reasons I didn't bring up Gone Baby Gone. I think it was released in America sometime last year. Good picture, incidentally, I rather enjoyed it.

I'll be going to My Winnipeg this evening, and I might give a nugget of my view here later...

I wanted to see Gone Baby Gone, my friend wanted to see Superhero movie... I'm sure he'll listen to me one day.

So far it has been a good summer. My wife and I are planning on doing a double feature of Get Smart and Hancock on Saturday. I am pissed that I am on call for work the next weekend when The Dark Knight comes out. I do not go to the movies when I am on call. I am worried that the pager will go off and I will miss part of the movie. But, I will see it the next weekend for sure along with Hellboy II. I am also going to see The X-Files I Want To Believe as well as The Mummy Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. I am still up in the air regarding Pineapple Express and Star Wars The Clone Wars. I have enjoyed most of the Apatow gang's movies and suspect that Pineapple Express will be funny. I will have to hear word-of-mouth for Clone Wars as the trailers do not excite me one bit.

I forgot there is another movie that looks funny that I might go see, Step Brothers. Can't go wrong with the two stars from one of 2006 best movies, Talladega Nights.

I elect not to be pedantic about it.

It does "bug" me that people keep saying "Wall-E", I guess, forgeting that his name was an acronym so it's called "WALL-E."
