    You still have drive-ins? Wow! The last one around here closed about 8 or 9 years ago.

    Good movie. Not great. Diverting.
    Nice way to spend a couple of hours on a hot afternoon.

    Boy, I sure miss my hometown's drive-in. The food! Pickle on a stick, kielbassa on a stick ... And watching films like Deep Blue Sea in the pouring rain with the windshield wipers going. Like 3-D. Actually felt like we were in the underwater base.

    want to see it soon

    I don't have high expectations but it should be entertaining.
    We have a drive in here but with the heat ( was 106 Tues, still in the 90s at night) the drive in is basically a mosquito buffet so I'll pass on that.

    I went to the drive-in with the family two years back to relive the magic of my youth and I quickly realized that high real estate prices aren't the only reason they're rare these days. No surround sound, far from optimal visuals. If I want to watch a movie in my car, it'll be a DVD playing on one of the fold-down screens.

    Saw it at the drive-in, too. I enjoyed it, though I kept thinking they could have made the story stronger in a lot of ways. Still, it was great fun.

    A friend of mine worked as an extra and stuntman on the film. I _think_ I spotted him a couple times.

    "Cowboys & Aliens" [3.8/10]: IMHO and with all due respect to the opposing opinion of others, I have to say that this was the worst movie that I have seen in a long time. I initially thought that the story sounded ridiculous. I saw the stars involved. My wife expressed interest. I fell for the hype and the trailers. I went to see the movie. My initial feelings were correct. I thought that the film was terrible from A to Z. The story, the acting, even the filmmaking were sub-par. I am so sorry I wasted my money. My favorite part of the experience was seeing the trailer for "War Horse" which is due out at Christmas. (3.8/10 is kind because, though my opinion is that he messed-up here, I generally like Daniel Craig...)
