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.
The Hurt Locker was really good.
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.
Haven’t seen Salt, but glad it was good.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I have seen even one of these films. I’m beginning to think I’m becoming an old foggy.
Nah, you are too busy on your Kindle 🙂
Hurt Locker = Intense. Insightful. But Best Picture?
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…
You watch a lot of good movies. I get to know about those and try watching.
Some months are better than other!
Most definitely want to watch the first two movies!! This is a fave feature of mine! 😀
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.
We are planning on seeing The Hurt Locker!
And then I will tell you what I think 🙂
It’s gritty. Come back and let us know what you think.
haven’t watched even one of these. My husband watched Inception while I was away and he loved it although he said it was a little heavy on the mind.
Jason and I debated the ending the whole way home.
We saw Inception too, and really liked it, although my husband and I have different opinions on the ending.
Jason & I did too! Did you think it stopped spinning or not? I don’t think it stopped.
My 5-word reply on Inception Ending: I’m sure the top dropped.
Then you agree with my husband 🙂
Still have not seen The Hurt Locker, but we want to.
It’s worth it.
I like The Hurt Locker. I haven’t watched the others but I want to watch Inception very soon.
Inception: Simply the best. Mind-boggling.
The Hurt Locker: Superb film. Deserved its Oscar.
The International: Clive Owen rocks. Great movie!
Inception: Trippy, good cast, I’m clueless!
Ghost Town: ghosts, boring dentist, romance, funny!
Inception: Interesting flick with uninteresting characters.
