    We’re supposed to go see Inception this evening. I hope I like it as much as you did. I really liked The Hurt Locker – it made me think of a friend of Vance’s the whole time I watched it.

    I saw Inception and would give it an F-…I like Salt a whole lot better and would rather have spent my money on seeing Salt again.

      I agree. I liked it a lot, but am not sure if I would have voted for it myself. Of course they didn’t ask me…

      I’m glad you like it! It’s funny how many times I’ve gone back to these posts to see when I watched a movie just since I started doing this in November.
