I was thinking something along the same lines, Bill.

Dude, I made the same mistake Friday night and you took the words right out of my mouth.

Slice you open like a tauntaun, faster than the Autobahn,
Or a motorbike in Tron, do the deed and then I'm gone.

I saw The Conjuring today.  It was quite scary.  Legitimately.

Those films are the Travelling Wilburys of action movies.

Did anyone see Elysium and have any comment on it?  Or Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters? 

I was going to skip both but I have a free ticket that expires the end of the month and nothing opening this week or next looks any more interesting to me so figured I'd catch one of these if they're any good.

I caught Elysium several weeks back. It was like a dumbed-down District 9. The special effects and action sequences were great, but the plot and overall experience were not up to par. Provided you enjoyed District 9, I could recommend a free viewing of Elysium.

I've heard real good things about "The World's End", if you haven't seen it.  There's also "We're the Millers" if you're a Jen Aniston fan.

I'm going to see "Rush" which opens towards the end of the month.  Based on the 1976 Formula 1 championship rivals, it should be very interesting if it's done right.  Of course, being a F1 fan, I'll go see it.  Another bonus, Olivia Wilde.

I ended up seeing Elysium.  I was a little tired going in and actually zoned out a couple times during the movie so that's sort of an indication of how interesting it was at times.

It was okay, glad I didn't pay for it, though.

Thought I had responded to this but I saw Elysium a few weeks back. It wasn't bad, but it did feel rather cliche. Some cool action shots in the beginning though, and the CGI looked cool.

Being a child of the 80's I think I'm not alone in saying I wanted to be an astronaut when I was young.  Gravity brought all of that back and more...all of the reviews are spot on, it is absolutely fantastic.  The effects and scenes are breathtaking and also brought me back to watching NASA IMAX films of yore.  I'm giving it a solid 10 out of 10 (10 being the highest).
