Intouchables was amazing. If you can handle subtitles I highly recommend it.

The monsters from "Pacific Rim" look pretty sweet..... but the robots, are kinda dumb. This is a movie that I think I'll appreciate the crafting of, rather than the watching.

It would have been better with Hugh Jackman controlling the robots...and without Charlie Day. That movie looks idiotic.

i finally managed to see TDKR...

Spoiler:
-man, the acting was good. everyone just hit a home run with their performances
-the execution of the story was good, though i was disappointed to see the ra's al ghul stuff resurrected. i didn't think it was particularly compelling in the 1st movie, and same for this one. i would have rather seen bane as some rogue, independent villain.
-speaking of bane...i was disappointed at the twist where he became 2nd banana to the french chick. it really marginalized his character. it's is an interesting turn, but i wanted him to be the ultimate villain that he was portrayed as - not an uber henchman.
-didn't feel like catwoman was necessary, but anne hathaway did a fantastic job
-i think the batman story arc was pretty hollow in the first two movies. they finally got me to care about this character in this one, which was a surprise.
-it wasn't as good as the TDK. too many characters, which required this sort of extreme over-exposition throughout the movie. and of course you can't match ledger's joker, but it was still very good.
-a few nitpicky things...crane as the judge, matthew modine being pointless, the scene at the end where they feel the need to tell you in 3 different ways when gordon got his "bruce wayne" reveal, the clumsy braveheart battle between the cops and the criminals. so there was a little too much clunk for it to be a great movie, but i liked it.

Watching 48 Hours, with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy. Watched it back in the day (as a child), but not since then.

Mike from Breaking Bad is in it (briefly), as is Dexter's dad from Dexter.

It's good, but the racial overtones are a bit overbearing for a movie shot in the 1980s. One character, a Native American, is called all kinds of slang throughout the movie, none of it necessary (maybe a bit at the beginning, used as a tool for a prisoner's escape). His friend gets him a hooker - but tells the pimp to "get a squaw. No, not one with a turban." Just odd.

Nolte calls Murphy's character "boy" and "watermelon" - and this is just the first 30 minutes or so.

Is it still a funny movie? Sure, as it was Murphy's breakout role. And the racism doesn't detract from the movie...it was just jarring to hear it.

Another one: Animal House. It has a lot of racial overtones and bigotry in it. Weird.

No, no. I just didn't remember the racial stuff in 48 Hours...it just sounds really dated now. Still a funny movie though...

Blazing Saddles is one of my favorites, and the racial stuff in that is parody. I think.

watched Silver Linings Playbook. Didn't know much about this going in, but it was really great. Definitely one of the better movies I've seen in a while, wonderful surprise. So nice to see Bobby De Niro actually acting again too.

So...

Netflix lost a large chunk of older Warner Bros titles because of WB opening their own "instant archive" service. the list of movies that have expired 5/1:

http://instantwatcher.com/titles/expiring

edit:
business jargon
Update, 10:36 p.m.: A spokesperson for Warner Bros. insists that the launch of Warner Archive Instant is not responsible for the removal of films from Netflix’s streaming service. Joris Evers of Netflix writes in to say that Netflix often licenses movies on an exclusive basis and sometimes chooses not to renew less watched titles. He also notes that many of the movies expiring at midnight were part of a deal Netflix had with Epix.
