He got nominated for an Oscar, didn't he?

Dave freaked out with what Casey's character did. The first time, I saw the movie, I thought he did the right thing, but at the same time, it was so wrong for him to make that decision.

I agree with what he did..just a bit shocked is all.


and yes he did get nominated for an Oscar..I would love to see him in more roles like that one.

He did the right thing. He's an honest guy and he was hired to get something done and he finished his job. The problem is that the woman he helped didn't change, so for some viewers, they think Casey should have known better. They think that he should have guessed that she was going to be the same unresponsible person. What's a clue to this is his girlfriend breaking up with him because she thinks he did the wrong thing.

I hope he gets some more roles like this one. Did you see in in "The Assasination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford"? He was so creepy in this movie, but very good.

Watched "Righteous Kill" last night. Not as bad as the reviews, but still a waist of two great actors.

I was disappointed with this movie. It was easy to figure out that Pacino's character was the killer.

Watched Don Cheedle in "Traitor" the other night...not a bad flick. Also saw "Valkyrie"...typical Tom Cruise over acting, but a good story.

If you've never seen "Boondock Saints" check that out...pretty good film!

Watched "Appaloosa" last night, I enjoyed it a lot. Good dialog between Viggo and Ed, good story.

The only weird part was the soundtrack, every time they played music I thought it was out of pace with the movie.

Agree about Righteous Kill. I was wicked disappointed.

I liked "Traitor" with Don Cheadle - although not sure I liked the ending.

I liked "Tropic Thunder". There were some really funny parts.

I hated "Knocked Up". I love stupid humor but it was just really, really bad.

Those are the only ones I can think of that I've seen recently.

A friend saw "Rocknrolla" and said it was awesome. I like Guy Ritchie so I'll have to rent it.

What did you think of Renee Zellwegger's character?

She is know for packing on pounds for different roles and I think she did for this one. I liked how she was complicated but their approach to her was straight forward. I was very glad she did not come between them in any other way.
