0 for 2

Over the last few nights, my wife and I have decided to catch up on viewing some of the new movies that we have acquired over the last month or so. A few nights ago, we watched "JARHEAD" and let me just say this......BORING!!!!!I was very disappointed with the storyline, although Jake Gillenhaul's performance was somewhat o.k. This movie had gotten good reviews and Netflix's rating was a 4.5 stars. I had been looking forward to seeing JARHEAD since it came to theaters, but I am glad that I didn't waste $14 to see it at the big screen. Last night, we decided to watch Nicholas Cage in "The Lord Of War." Although, this was better than Jarhead, it still left something to be desired. I knew it was based on true events and had kept on the real life scenario of gun runners in the 80's and 90's, I was still left with a bit of disappointment with the way that it was portrayed in this movie. Nick Cage's performance was good, but both my wife and I agreed that this could have been much better. So, I was 0 for 2 this week in picking movies, maybe next week I will have better look. I think we are gonna watch "The Great Raid" and "Munich".
