You might like this National Geographic movie/documentary "A Man Among Wolves". The whole thing in on Youtube in HD. I watched it a couple of times already. It is riveting.

Although rare, that is not the case!

"Officials say Berner, a special education teacher who moved to Alaska last summer, was set on by at least two wolves while out for a late-afternoon jog on a road outside Chignik Lake, a fishing village on the Alaska Peninsula, about 475 miles southwest of Anchorage.

Biologists don't know for sure what triggered the attack on Berner but say it could be a combination of opportunity, hunger and instinct."

Interesting, in 2010, the only other documented fatal attack was 2005.

The explanation given is that the men are essentially on the wolves turf.
I seriously can't imagine the disappointment of folks paying and seeing this at the movies.
Liams performance was good and I really like the guy!
I look forward to Taken 2!

Saw Man with the Iron Fists and I enjoyed it tons. Only issue I had was with the actor RZA playing the role of the man with the iron fists. His acting was barf material, but the movie was amazing. RZA and Eli Roth wrote the movie but attached Quentin Tarantino's name to it to give it more hype and umph. Badass movie with awsome fight scenes!

Life of Pi -
7/10
Decent acting with amazing visual effects. If you like "artistic" like films that lean or towards fantasy then you'll enjoy this movie.

Gangster Squad -
3.5/10
Probably Sean Penn's worst performance yet. He also looked deformed - wtf happened to his face?
Mediocre acting, garbage tail (not to mention told many times over), and flimsy gun fights

Django -
9.5/10
Superb acting by all especially Jamie Fox. Was much better than expected. Recommend you go see it
Seen it twice and will be purchasing on DVD. Made my fav top Western movies (believe it or not it's very western like) amongst the likes of 3:10 to Yuma.

I lost interest and patience halfway through this movie. I had much higher expectations.

If you're on the fence about the film then don't be. It's a great movie

I liked Elysium. I have heard mixed reviews, but as a fan of action and sci-fi, I liked it.

Queue the hordes of "xy and z would never be possible" critics.

The movie was fantastic!

So, much better than District 9. Which was a bore fest.

I completely agree with both posts.

So what's the next movie?

Ah yeah! I saw Julianne Moore on Letterman or Leno a few weeks ago. And they showed a clip. It looks like good acting and good production.

Seen this thread? ROFL... http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=726825

12 Years a Slave - I was forced to see it because I felt so tired and sleep deprived. But damnit, the movie woke me up and had my full undivided attention. What a great movie. It's a must see. Awsome cast, superb acting, great plot.
9/10

Carrie - What a let down. I'm tempted to give spoiler details but to sum it up
4/10

Now You See Me - Pretty good. Passed my expectations and surprised me with a good ending.
7/10

With so many reruns on TV, and this being such a classic, most had.

I'll watch almost anything except that new reincarnation of Carrie this Halloween - out of pure principle. Pick something else!!!! Pick something that has only been remade twice or three times, not 3453463545!!!!!
