We saw ST too...loved it also..so much so that it reawakened the Trekkie in me. I'm planning to drag hubby to the ST convention here in Aug.

Cool! the IMAX thing would be great. We are really tight right now, so no movies for us. Chris did get to go see Star Trek and loved it. He saw Night at the Museum II last weekend and loved that one too. Gees, how does he rate? No one takes me to the movies! What's up with that?

We are fortunate to have an IMAX theater locally. That is one place I don't mind paying the price for. Most recently, I saw Star Trek there, and it was totally amazing. I also liked it, Deeann.

We did end up seeing Star Trek. I really liked it. They did a good job of getting 'look alike' characters and maintaining personalities.

I've given up going to the movies because of the price. Very seldomly does something get released that I think wow! I need to spend $10+ on that! Kind of a shame too, I'm surrounded by 2 movie theaters at work, and Pixar is down the street from me...

oh well. Now I know what to put in my netflix list!

Hey, Joey ! The price of movies is the reason I go to the matinee. I pay $6 instead of $9.50. Unless I'm on a date, I can't see paying full price.

I went to see Pixar's Up. it's really really amazing. It's yet one more terrific Pixar movie.

Now, not including Wall-E, which I considered extraordinary, UP is just as good as Toy Story. It's better than Cars and Monsters, Inc, but not quite as amazing as Finding Nemo or Wall-E.

You really find yourself wrapped up in the characters. I mean, when an animated movie can make you cry, you know you've seen something special.

Yes, I got teary eyed. Like all Disney movies, there are some sad spots. Still, fabulous movie AND you get a "cartoon" before the movie.

I saw Terminator Salvation in Chicago last Friday. The effects were amazing, but overall, I was disappointed by the movie. I was expecting that the story line would be moved forward, which it wasn't at all. I had also heard that the plot aligned with the television series that has been aired for the last two years, and it was not incorporated. It certainly was not the huge bomb that Terminator III was, though.

And wow... the price of movies in Chicago! We went to a 4:00 matinee, and the tickets were over $10. The concessions were easily twice the price of those in Madison. It was a different company (AMC vs. Markus). With our group of about eight people, we spent at least $200. If movies cost that much here, I would be going even less frequently than I do!

Okay... got in my Christian Bale fix ! LOL !!

Terminator Salvation is not bad. It's a pretty good action flick. Now, if you've never seen the Terminator movies, you'll probably be a little confused by what's going on. The movie is definitely short on plot and character development.

However, the action was good (special effects terrific) as were Christian Bale and Sam Worthington. I never hear of him, but I was really impressed with his performance.

I don't think I'll be seeing any movies this weekend Saturday and Sunday should be pretty normal, then on Monday I'm meeting up with a Sparker that is on my State team who lives nearby.

BUT, I'd sure like to hear the reviews of the movies you all see.

Night at the Museum II or Angels & Demons, I haven't decided what I want to do with myself yet. If it is beautiful out I don't want to be in a theater. It rains, maybe I will splurge and see both.

Enjoy the weekend!!!!

I don't make it to many movies, but I still want to see the Disney Nature movie, Earth. Is Anybody There? looks charming, but maybe a rental. And I think I'll wait until it comes to the second-run theatre to see Angels & Demons.
Planning on seeing Up on opening night, May 29th!

Is anyone going to the movies this weekend ? If so, what are you seeing ? I'm debating... It's a toss up between Terminator Salvation and Night at the Museum II.

I'll admit, I am leaning towards Terminator. I'm on a Christian Bale kick. But, I do like dumb comedies too.
