    Welcome to Hollywood

    The movie Escape Plan with Stallone and schwarzenegger might be interesting though. I like prison movies.

    For me Gravity and Captain Phillips have some appeal but that's about it.

    Unfortunately I don't get to the movie theatre very often these days so I don't know if I'll get to see even these.

    Gravity has gotten rave reviews. I plan on seeing it at the end of the week along with Rush, Captain Philips and Machete (I have to see Sophia Vegara the sexiest woman on the planet right now, she has it all, looks, body, killer smile, accent and funny as can be).

    The first Machete was kind of over the top with violence. Most of Rodriguez movies who also directed this film seem to follow same formula of style over substance with violence as under tone. I'm guessing the new Machete will follow the same suit.

    I am usually not so big a fan of violent movies like these but I found the last one funny if not socially unacceptable. My son wants to see it and we usually go to the movies together.
