Saturday Night at the Movies

I've been very remiss in getting this feature up in a timely manner and the result is several movies to review.  We are fortunate to have a movie theatre on the neighboring military base that has discounted admission and often offers free previews.  We've been spending quite a bit of time there lately.

Excellent film - hard to imagine how pirates in a vessel that's little more than a glorified rowboat (albeit with a motor) can take on a container ship.  I found a sad underlying note to the film as well; as heinous a crime as piracy is, the pirates were so desperate and that was difficult to watch at times.

Another tough one to watch, especially for someone who has a close family member on active military service and an amazing testimony to what the human body can endure.  Very well done.

It's been a while since we went to see this one but I remember that it was very good with lots of suspenseful moments.  Great casting too, one of those films when the actors really fit their roles.

Sophia's a huge fan of Kellan Lutz so she loved this one.  It was ok.  At least it didn't feature a vampire, a werewolf, a superhero, or a robot.

And finally, yesterday's feature.  All I can say is, brilliant special effects, funny accents (why were Romans trying to be British?), and an interesting ending.  Not what I was expecting, but I suppose it was predictable.

Seen any good films lately?

Oops, forgot this one that we picked up from Redbox:

Interesting.  Not one I'd watch again but it had it's moments.
