I hardly ever go to the theater... Unless Jason is in a movie. Wink ... So I've been watching 'older' movies thanks to NetFlix... I don't feel like starting a new thread for each one because yall have probably already seen them, but I want to comment on them anyway...

PAY IT FORWARD

WHY do movie makers feel the need to ruin a great movie with a terrible ending?!?!?!?
I watched Pay It Forward last night... Absolutely the movie EXCEPT for the last 5 minutes... That ending was great in Field of Dreams but just pissed me off in Pay It Forward ... What's a person supposed to get from an ending like that?... If you do something good, you lose in the end?... IMHO the movie should have ended when he rides his bike towards his friend... End

I agree. Some producer/directors are just not happy unless they are tearing your heart out. bonked on the head

Pay it forward was a great movie but I hated the ending too! Another tear jerker is "My Name is Sam", with Shawn Penn and Dakota Fanning! Loved that one! Lovies

I agree Penny.
Return to Me happens to be one of our favorites as well. Great supporting cast!
The word play from all those widowers keeps Alice and I laughing throughout! You are killin me

I don't know how many "stars" the critics gave the movie, but it has at least 3-1/2 from me. bravo

Some of us, for various reasons, do a lot of our movie-watching at home. Doesn't mean movies that are not in the theater currently are not worthy of discussing. So come on, if you've watched something that you can recommend...or dis, lead us off.

Probably be best to view that one at home. Would never be able to sit thru the curtain dress scene without seeing Carol Burnett in my mind. roflmao

I saw a wonderful "old" movie today. It was called Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005) with Robert Downey Jr. He plays a thief who goes to Hollywood one step ahead of the law. Is being considered for a role as a detective when real life steps in and derails all his plans.

It is funny and well written. Has lots of action and fights. Good performances by all. Definitely worth a rent.

It pops up around here every once in a while...and they always advertise that there WILL be and intermission. roflmao


I really want to go see it, but the timings never right. I've also seen it so many times, it's near memorized anyway...even after not seeing it for years. Embarassed It made an impression.
