I watched Some Like it Hot for the umpteenth time last night.  Still and eagle or maybe even a hole in one on a par 4!  One of the best comedies ever.

Recently rewatched Heist - Hackman, DeVito. What a great old fashioned heist movie.

Took the little guy to Lego Movie yesterday. It was actually pretty fun and humorous. Enjoyed it.

Pardie. :D

Actually I would give it a birdie.

I just realized it now, but kind of a kids version of the Matrix. I think like a turtle.

Heist: tap-in birdie.

Rush also gets a solid birdie. I don't care about racing, but it's a good character study, and based on real life. It's pretty incredible, the lives of both men, and made for a good two hours. I wasn't bored by any portions.

I watched Rush yesterday. I too don't care for racing in any way, but was entertained from start to finish ( slight pun intended). Easily a birdie, and arguably an eagle in my opinion. This is a movie I'll enjoy watching a few times.

I give The Short Game an even par. Some of the kids were adorable. Some of the parents, not so much.

$125 dollars later, my household went to see The Lego Movie tonight. We all enjoyed it, so I'm giving it a par.

Also watched Frailty for the first time in years on Netflix. Loved the overall feel of the film, even if it seemed a bit clunky in spots. Definitely a par.

Is that the movie with Otis the Axe? If so, yeah, great movie.

Watched Ender's Game the other day and found it to be pretty entertaining.  Solid par.

I'm very curious, it was a great book that became a pretty far out series of books later on. @Golfingdad, have you read the book?

preemptive for me!!! :offtopic:, the Ender Series book are amazing. Well I only read the first 2 or 3 of each major branch. The regular Ender Series and the Shadow Series.

You needn't worry. ;)  I have not read the book.  I actually wasn't even that interested in seeing the movie ... but the wife read the books and was a big fan, which is why we watched the movie.  Turns out I liked it more than her, I think, probably because I didn't have any expectations going in.

 

She gave me a little background afterwards - such that I know what Matt is referring to - but she wasn't sure if they were planning on continuing to make the movies or not.

Hmm, from the previews it looks like the finished the primary story, but then it branches off into a lot of different things. I seriously should pick up those books again.

His Homecoming Saga was pretty cool too. Very good author but some of his social and political views are pretty reprehensible IMO.
