    Harry Potter might be the most popular book movie series but that doesn't necessarily make it the best. Personally, I think they're overrated.

    The Bourne trilogy was much more enjoyable for me.

    The highest rated Twilight move on RT is at 49.

    This is at 90 currently.

    Do you really think it will drop by 41 in three days?

    Anyone whose read the book(s) knows that the relationship DOES NOT drive the story.

    The story drives the relationship...


    For those who have not read it. Might want to listen to the ones who have.

    I saw a trailer for this in the cinema when I went to watch Chronicle, I thought it looked really good and I never knew it was based on a book

    I know some people might be interested. I know DreDayTox loved 127 Hours. Simon Beaufoy who wrote that movie and Slumdog Millionaire is already writing the second and third movies.

    I like the short of my name, you just needed the "De" before the "Tox" or Detox for short lol...


    Anyway, that was irrelevant but yeah I loved 127 Hours and as I recall, you did too. I remember you had a sig and I remember posting on your page about it not winning anything. I still think Franco deserved best actor for that one lol.

    So I finished the Hunger Games book yesterday. I enjoyed it, and am going to see the movie on Friday. I guessed at the end about a few chapters in, but it came about in a way I didn't expect.

    My bad, I feel bad about that I generally just do Dre to abbrev it. I kept thinking after i posted... "There's three D's in his name, isn't there..."

    Yep, still a great movie and Franco definitely glad he got the nom at least.

    There are some predictable moments but I still enjoy how they play out. Like you say it's not quite how you expect.

    Do yourself a favor and read the other two. The first book is cool, but the next two are where it's really at. I mean this movie is light-hearted compared to the others. The second book is my favorite I think. The third though has some cool moments and the ending has a nice socio-political statement I thought really relates to our society.

    I have the other two. I'll probably start them after I see the movie though.
