    Nothing gets blown up.

    Simple really
    I'm not sure that was the exact reasoning.

    Alas no, I have been on holiday for 2 weeks = no films.

    May have to try and watch it.

    Movies should be about blowing things up, if I want something with character development i will read a book. Put it in movies if you want but don't let it get in the way of things getting blown up/melted/vaporised :yep:
    Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

    I'm not sure what's worse - that paragraph above or Iso saying G.I. Joe is absolutely class. :indiff:

    Plus, it had John Travolta. I can't deny he was pretty good in it, but I still can't watch him without expecting him to burst into a shakey rendition of Grease Lightning.
    He's actually a pretty good actor. :p: He was awesome in Pulp Fiction and Face/Off.

    Well, when the guy told me I should watch it he laughed for ages :p:

    Then when I said i'd ask his mum if she'd seen it he shouted at me not to :rolleyes:

    :rofl:

    Its just me am generally only happy (probably a few exceptions) whit a film when something either gets blown up or apart, turned into glass/melted or there is a war.
    I believe the last film I watched lacking any of those essential plot items was mama mia at christmas when forced to and that just resulted in a day of ABBA songs stuck permanently in my head.

    Oh I forgot comedies are allowed in certain situations, though they are awarded bonus points if they can also fit in explosions and make them funny :yep:

    So many good films don't have anything like that. :p: The Shawshank Redemption, to pick one at random. Or American Beauty. Or Pulp Fiction. Or Forrest Gump. The list goes on...

    Generally I prefer films whose target audience isn't pre-pubescent boys with ADD.

    never watched, never watched, never watched and boring (even if it does have a war in it sort of) :p:

    As for the second point you don't need the be pre-pubescent with ADD to appreciate it though :yep:

    Exactly!

    I was told on holiday I could have a rejuvenating face treatment that would oxygenate all 5 layers of my skin, I wasn't aware I had that many!
