Hey, Achilles, when Hannibal Rising comes to theatres, could u do a write up on it? I hope that they don't spoil a great character in Lecter. Thanks.

I highly doubt I will be going to the theatre for that one. But when it comes out on DVD I will.

Dane Cook steals his material and can be a total tool, thus negating all possibility of his films being on any of my lists. (allthough I really liked waiting)

Waiting was great, and Employee of the Month was just as good. I think he's funny as hell, but that's just me, I guess.

internet **SMACK**

Employee of the Month. . . . I think we should bring back tar-and-feathering just b/c of the movie.

Honestly when was the last time you watched Billy Madison? I saw it two days ago. It is not that good. Really.

Guardian: B+

Good film actually. I was suprised pleasantly. The plot was solid as it was a true story or sorts and a tribute to an organization that definately needs more recognition in my opinion. A branch of our armed services that stays home, protects us and was the only branch to respond to Katrina to make a difference. The coast guard. Kevin Costner is one of my favorite actors and he does a great job in this film. Ashton Kutcher does an allright job but I think his role could of been casted a bit better. I don't want to take away from his performance at all (for once) but this film could of been in the area of "Men with Honor" if the supporting cast performed a bit better and Kutch has limits, this is one of his best performances up there with Butterfly Effect. No real suprised in the plot, a bit predictable but extremely entertaining this time. Especially the ending I liked. No spoilers for you guys but this one is definately worth a rent for all groups and no extra-curricular substances are needed for enjoyment.

SPOILER KIND OF DONT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE GUARDIAN

The only part of that movie I thought was cheesy was at the very end.

Ashton recuses someone and the guy says "where is he he said he wouldt let go". That was a little over the top for me.

Relative Strangers: D+

Ok, if you put on the top of a film "made by the people who made whatever" then DO NOT MAKE IT THE SAME DAMM MOVIE. Seriously, never rent this film, no matter what. I didn't like Meet the Parents, and this was 100 times worse. Waste of money if I had to pay for it.

Hopefully I will have some good reviews later in this week.
