    I thought Airplane 2 was going to be good, but it really dissapointed. It had a lot of the same jokes as the first one.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    OK. I rented and watched No Country For Old Men this past weekend. As much as I enjoy the Coen brother's movies, I personally don't feel this was one of their best.

    Was it a good movie? Yeah. But I personally don't think it was Oscar winning material.

    And I didn't care for the ending one bit.

    Across the Universe, it was hyped up too much by my friends and just fell short, and this is coming from a huge Beatles enthusiast.

    I LOVE ND now, and have seen it a bunch. I couldn't tell you WHY I love it, but I do.
    I feel the same way about NP.

    And Pulp Fiction. I didn't PF at all the first time I watched. Maybe because I had to watch it for a college English class. Anyhow, after two more viewings, I realized how awesome it really is. Very clever and very funny.

    A movie I just saw that really disappointed me: There Will Be Blood. I absolutely hated it. It was very long and boring and almost pointless. What a waste of time and money. The acting was good, but that didn't help the fact that there was no plot. Awful movie.

    I did, however, love No Country For Old Men. I didn't care for the ending much, but I was captivated for the entire film. I look forward to watching it again soon.

    But the ET's of the world demanded that style be pushed back into the art houses. Mostly because it bored the regular theater goer more and more as the 70's moved on, it became almost a deluge of movies that made you think... and feel (crappy most of the time) So let's thank The Unmarried Woman, Foxes, Lifeguard and American Gigilo for making us all feel seedy whilst eating popcorn.
    Don't get me wrong, there were many great movies in the 70's, and I liked the griminess and ennui, but some of that "realism" was just lazy and self-indulgent.
