my friend asked me this today, and I thought it would be interesting to see what others thought.

I saw the new Star Trek for the third time in five days last night. I think I need to wait a few days before seeing it again because it wasn’t quite as scintillating the third time as it was the first two. However, it still rocked completely and absolutely.

This weekend my friend and I did a double feature of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Star Trek

I’d heard nothing but bad things about Wolverine (my friends even called it “slightly worse than X-Men 3”), but I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was a decent action flick with interesting backstory into the known characters. Note that I’m not at all a Marvel Comics fan, so I don’t have any idea of whether that makes a difference in the enjoyment of the movie.

I absolutely loved the new Star Trek, however. I thought it was very well done, that they successfully rebooted the franchse in a way that makes sense for the established continuity, while opening it up to be enjoyed by non-Trekkies alike.

I saw ‘Walk The Line’, and it made me want to start writing music again :P

I saw Back to the Future 1, 2, and 3. It made me want to get a delorean and build a time machine.

Like most people, I saw Star Trek. And like most people, I thought it was great.

I re-watched One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.
Pretty much everything in this film is at or close to perfection.

Wolverine. I loved it. It certainly was one of those movies that will be good if you are expecting it to be good. A lot people didn’t like it though.

I saw last night, Star Trek for the second time! It was an amazing movie, I’m sure I’ll see it a third time sometime soon =)

My avatar is the new Kirk by the way.

I saw Marley and Me a lady I work with bought it and brought it to me and told me I had to watch it I wasn’t terribly interested in it and I bawled like a baby at the end. I didn’t like it that much.

I watched Juno for the first time a few weeks ago. I put it off because I usually don’t like to see a movie that receives so much hype. I’m sorry that I put it off for so long because I really enjoyed the movie. My husband also enjoyed it. That’s saying a lot coming from him.

I watched Gray Gardens. Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange were amazing. Having seen the original documentary, I didn’t have high expectations. I was so pleasantly surprised.

Star Trek, and it was the bomb, yo. A perfect franchise reboot in my opinion, the movie was great for both old and new fans.

Un baiser, s’il vous plâit. I thought it had charm and the french was easy to understand. Very French-romantic- fluff but a little shallow in spite of a good premise. How do you handle lust while you are in a long-term and happy relationship with someone else? An eternal question. (The cast, typically, drank the equivalent of one harvest from a good vineyard.)

I think it was The Secret Life of Bees. I liked it and loved MOST of the cast (can’t claim to think much of Dakota Fanning though!) especially Queen Latifa and Alicia Keys. However, it was nowhere near as wonderful as the book (ciche I know but so true!)

Star Trek in IMAX
It was fantastic!

Rachel Getting Married. It took me three days to watch this because I could only get through a small chunk at once. I’m not sure if it’s brilliant or banal. The one thing I know is that Anne Hathaway’s hair was rad.

@bythebay The Grey Gardens was good, wasn’t it. I love the documentary, so I was excited to see the movie. They “were” the Beales. I enjoyed it.

Wolverine, I liked it better than the 2nd X-men; helps to have Liev Schreiber.
