Jackie Robinson was one brave man.

Hey, remember the first white guy who played professional baseball?

Oh, that's right, white men didnt have to fight for the right to play or work or walk down the street or...(fill in the blank).

Heat. Bullock & MacCarthy were hilarious. A fun movie.

I watched the Hobbit this afternoon. I didn't care for it as much as I did the Lord Of the Rings movies. It didn't end like the book version unless they have a sequel planned to finish it up there. I will probably watch it again sometime. I had a hard time concentrating on it with my 8 year old Granddaughter being a Chatty Cathy.

I watched "Ted" on HBO. I am sooooo glad I didn't waste the money at the theater or red box to watch it. It nudged out Twilight in my top 3 DUMBEST movies of all time! I didn't even chuckle let alone laugh

#1 Eyes Wide Shut

#2 Hannibal

#3 TED

#4 Twilight (took my daughter opening day as a surprise....one of the BIGGEST mistakes of my LIFE!) I cried at the end...not because it was sad, but because I WASTED $40+ and 2 hours of my life I will NEVER get back!

Yes, I agree teedoff27, we watched Ted on Pay Per View and my teenage daughters, 17 and 18 were there when we watched it. Actually, my 17 year old wanted to see it so bad, so we gave in and paid the Direct TV PPV price. I'll admit that I did laugh a couple of times, but overall the movie was so stupid and actually I was a bit embarrassed to be in the same room as my daughters while watching it, it was quite crude and just inappropriate. When will movie producers get it??? You don't need all the crude/rude and inappropriate movie scenes, most people I've talked to about that movie felt the same way as I did.

However, Twilight is a series that my 17 year old daughter was obsessed with for awhile, she read all of the books, which of course, she said the books were so much better than the movies, aren't they always? I will admit that the first couple of movies were pretty good I thought. I'm sure your daughter loved going with you to see the movie, so when you think of it that way, did you really waste your money and time?

We just recently rented "The Call" with Halle Barry. This movie by far was EXCELLENT! Very scary and full of suspenseful thrill. I recommend this movie to many, it is pretty graphic and a bit bothersome, but is also something that could happen in real life and most likely has happened.

I wouldn't normally advocate for students to watch movies in a school auditorium, especially movies that are two-hours plus, but I would have no problem with middle and high school students seeing it. Would be a good lesson in racial tolerance.

My daughter was completely enthralled with Twilight, had read every book, and it was the biggest topic at school and thats why I took her. However it was 1 hour 45 minutes of "teen drama" and *clicks* and 17 minutes of actual vampire content. I was bored stiff and HATED it!

"Elysium". Great action film. Matt Damon with a body-make over, was excellent as was Jodie Foster, who is always looking great.

Extreme of the "haves and have nots".

A 9 film.

Great film. Branch Rickey has always been sort of a hero of mine... just as much as Jackie Robinson has been.

True Grit with Jeff Bridges. Better than the original, I think.

Star Trek Into Darkness. Good entertainment and lots of action. I liked it but a hard core trekkie would probably have issues about several things in the movie. I won't say what they are because I don't want to be a spoiler.

Skyfall. Typical James Bond action movie with less high tech gadgets. It had some memories of past Bond movies and a surprise ending. I liked it.

The Family. Cheap shoot'em up movie. Must be the film makers needed to jump-start mafia movies. I give it a 5

The Assassination of Jesse James by The Coward Robert Ford.

I picked it from somebody's list of "17 Best Westerns", and I agree that it's a very good flick.

That's an excellent flick, Smith. Casey Affleck was nominated for an Oscar for his role in that film, in fact.

Last film I was "Jobs", which I saw two weeks ago in Clay.

Did you notice that James Carville played Gov. Crittendon? LOL...I backtracked those brief shots 3 times, thinking, "It can't be...he's in another line of work!".

Then again, politics (although he's played the political role of producer or director, or script writer, maybe, rather than actor, in this analogy) is largely the art of convincing people...making them believe, as are film or stage.

Hmnnn...maybe Penn & Teller's act would be more analogous to politics. They fool people, while making them like it, for a (successful) living.
