    Nope. Just wanted to give benefit of a doubt to a decent cast/director and the ghost of a property I used to appreciate. It was on cable(repeatedly) so I figgered i'd catch it...in case I missed something.

    I went to see Ruby Sparks last night. It is made by the same individuals who made Little Miss Sunshine. I enjoyed it.

    The Bourne Legacy -- Liked it quite a bit. On par with, and very similar to, the previous Bourne movies. I really enjoy the balance of action and government inner-workings. Same complaints about fight sequences being shot too tightly, making it difficult to tell what exactly was happening, but it's a relatively minor gripe in what was otherwise good fun. Oh, and also you can tell the stunt man isn't Jeremy Renner during a lot of the motorcycle chase stuff.

    Total Recall -- Thoroughly bland. Just... didn't like it at all. Eye candy was even disappointing. If it wasn't for Kate Beckinsale, I think Len Wiseman would be doing something other than directing to make a living.

    Dread is a really interesting horror film about two students working on a project that examines fear and dread. It's not your typical Clive Barker story, as there aren't any monsters or demons. There are some really disturbing scenes and the ending is pretty ****ed up, seems like most people like the way the story ends better than the movie. I know Orphy and JD both like Barker so maybe they could shed some light on this.

    I haven't seen Total Recall yet but I had similar thoughts regarding Wiseman before. No offense to him but all he's really ever shown in the past is taking opportunities to try to showcase Beckinsale's appearance in various lackluster and bland plots.

    Does anyone have a Hulu Plus streaming membership? They're trawling with a free trial, and $8 monthly afterwards--about the same as netflix which we use lots. I was going to ask how they compare if anyone's had both, but on their site it shows that Hulu has 725 Criterion titles??? THAT is a number nothing short of ridiculous and may alone be worth the $. Still any feedback is appreciated.

    I use both Hulu and Netflix (as well as Amazon Prime). The Criterion titles are certainly on of Hulu's highlights. Hulu also offers some television shows starting the day after they have been first aired as well as television content that Netflix does not necessarily have (the British show Misfits, for example). Hulu also has commercial interruptions for the new TV content, though the commercial breaks are shorter than OTA length.

    Each has gaps in content. FWIW, I end up watching Netflix more frequently, but I've found some real gems on Hulu. It's definitely worth at least the free trial to see if you'd like to switch or even use both services.

    It's worth noting that some of the Criterion titles available on Hulu are not available on Blu-Ray or DVD, too. If you enjoy those, you may also like some of Hulu's other eclectic programming.

    Both services' interfaces could be improved, IMO.

    I don't use it (because I don't have time to watch enough to justify spending the money), but I regularly masturbate to Criterion's streaming section on Hulu Plus.

    [QUOTE=adgy-san;2573803]The Bourne Legacy In my opinion, no where near the previous Bourne movies. It was worth getting out of the heat for almost two hours though

    Ugh! Thanks for the visuals, Adgy! :O

    Haha!

    Hey Diehard, congrats, you've seen the one film based on a Barker story that I haven't!

    I SHOULD watch it though!

    Yeah, Dread is somewhat atypical Barker short story, more realistic, and I did think that it would make a good movie when I read it. The ending in the story, scratch that, the whole story is really good and gets under your skin. Maybe you should read it!
