    No, I'm not talking about the upcoming NBA Western Conference Finals between the Lakers and the Clips (nope, that one will be The Figueroa Fight)...

    ...instead, I'm talking about this year's most ass-kicking movie. Like the WSJ blogger said, is it bad that I'm already looking forward to the sequel?

    One of my friends worked on it because it was filmed at Barksdale AFB.

    How will this be different/better than Cloverfield or War of the Worlds? (the Tom Cruise one)

    The aliens are destroying Los Angeles, making them the good guys.

    And I thought this thread was going to be about the McCourts.

    Upon further review, this movie (apparently) sucks ass...


    "Young men: If you attend this crap with friends who admire it, tactfully inform them they are idiots. Young women: If your date likes this movie, tell him you've been thinking it over, and you think you should consider spending some time apart."

    I have seen three trailers for this, and although it is probably the same clip, it looks more and more like Independence Day every time. Looks like a plot ripoff with little in the way of scintillating special effects. Fortunately, my son who is normally way into stuff like this has shown no interest.

    Is there writing any better than a Roger Ebert review of an awful movie?

    I saw the trailer and it was disturbing to see my hometown get trashed.
    I hope my Dad survived OK.

    I like that you differentiated between WotW, as if anyone would have thought of the C. Thomas Howell version. :D
