A few along the lines of what I'm looking for are Thirteen Days, anything with Jack Ryan, Enemy of the State, Spy Game, etc.


Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Invasion USA
The Third Man
Good Night, and Good Luck

also
The Spy who came in from the cold (which takes place before Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: also from author John Le Carres' George Smiley spy books)

I would like to go back to that cold night in early December 1980 and push Mark David Chapman in front of a bus. Other than that, I'm good.

Take her skinny dipping and problem solved. Kissing would not be allowed though. But that's a given anyways.

If you liked the LOTR movies, go for the Hobbit.

Haven't seen Django yet, doubt I will while it's in the theaters.

Movie 43 is not something I'd ever go to the theaters for... looks like MAYBE something I'd try to watch if I was really bored and it was on. Maybe.

Well it will probably come down to Django or The Hobbit. I love Quentin Tarantiono movies...but I also dug all three LOTR movies.

Speaking of The Hobbit... I've been thinking about where the second film might end... Major spoilers to follow... you've been warned.
Spoiler:
While re-reading the book recently, my initial thought was that it would end as they are leaving Laketown, as that felt like a good stopping point at the time... and then I remembered that the second film is called The Desolation of Smaug... so they HAVE to go farther than that.

I also started thinking about Smaug himself. Although he is built up as the main villain, he dies well before the end of the story... so it seems like he either has to die at the end of the second movie, or early in the third. The former seems better, as it would build up to a good ending to the second film. If it occurs early in the third, it will be somewhat of an after thought.

At e same time, how then do they fill in the third movie? I'm sure they will greatly build up the battle of the Five Armies (it is the title of the film, after all!), and perhaps the Necromancer stuff will play into that film moreso than the 2nd... but at the sae time, he has to e dealt with prior to the battle since Gandalf must return for it.

If not for the title of the second film, I might guess that the Necromancer stuff would be more prominent in the second film... I can't see both Smaug and the Necromancer being dealt with in the same film though...

My current guess is that it ends with Smaug dead, but the Dwarves not knowing it yet.

7 psychopaths is a must see, the cast is incredible, Sam Rockwell should have awards for his performance. What a hilariously awesome movie. Great followup after In Bruges

Wow, I've never seen a 'pink band' trailer before.......

Some NSFW stuff for an imbed, imo, but....... that looks to be a special kind of terrible.
