I guess I should explain what the film's about. Smile

It's a movie/documentary that explores the possibility of humanity's creation by intelligent design, or at least the idea of it being blacklisted by the scientific community.  Eventhough the movie lumps sheds a  negative light on those who dismiss intelligent design and whose beliefs are closer to Darwinism (making Nazi connections being a big one), I figure I'd give the movie a chance.

I see. I totally understand why intelligent design "theory" is blacklisted by the scientific community.

Just saw it yesterday, too. It's entertaining, to be sure, and I like the last post-apocalyptic battleground Chicago act... but it certainly is not the best sci-fi flick in the world.

Great special effects. Way over the top. I couldn't finish watching it.
 
 
Chris Tucker was hilarious in this.

It's true that it's not a masterpiece of a movie, but it didn't suck as much as I thought it would.

I'm on the 3rd Season of Dexter.  Probably the greatest drama series to ever be aired..

I was really looking forward to that, but I thought it was terrible.  I felt like it just went through the motions of being a psychological thriller then fell on its face.

Pan's Labyrinth - (9 / 10) Clap




Even better IMO:

The Devil's Backbone ( http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/devils_backbone/ )

For some reason I can't post images right now.

I watched "The French Connection" starring Gene Hackman.  Pretty good.  Not a great movie, but good.

Today I watched The Breakfast Club and Eraserhead.  The Breakfast Club was great, and Eraserhead was one of the most mind f*** movies I've seen.  I can't decide if it like it or hate it.

Another rental from the library: The Andromeda Strain


I enjoyed it.  Solid suspense/sci-fi.
