    Well... had the chance to see this at a free showing last night, and foolishly took the chance. Only one question: when did Marvel Comics buy the right to Charlie's Angels? Those girls made Spiderman look wimpy...

    Again, the girls don't use guns, and do enough aerial martial arts to land roles in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.And the hot bodies in skimpy outfits didn't make up for it...

    However, Demi Moore has now given us a new great line: "When I was an Angel, we used guns"

    That is what really pissed me off about the first one. They do more crazy moves than the Matrix

    Yep.
    Yet another example that proves my theory that any movie that prominently features Desert Eagles automatically sucks.

    There is a corollary, however. The above theorem does not apply to The Matrix films.

    :D

    I don't know what the politics of the other two ladies are but at least they know how to keep it to themselves.

    Where's that Brad Pitt quote?

    After the Matrix they have to put Matrix moves in every movie.

    Before the first Angels movie, all three of them did promos for AlGore for president. I guess in Hollywood, if you don't kneel and bob for the leftists, your career turns to ashes.

    I wrote them all off at that point and have avoided their garbage ever since.

    watching the previews for this show made me chuckle every time. it is so blatently geared toward the 15-30 male movie goer. i like fast cars, big guns, and skimply clad beauties as much as the next guy, but good grief. . .

    Last movie that I liked featuring Drew Barrymore was "Firestarter".

    Who's Ashton?

    There was a People magazine someone left in the lunch room that I was flipping thru on my lunch break.

    These people go through marriages faster than I go through tactical gear.

    I encourage movies to look "cool" and shoot wrong. Hopefully that influences the bad guys to look "cool" and shoot wrong :) So any movie that does that I give a 2 thumbs up.

    But the guys renting the gun at the range a few booths down (do you guys have a Desert Eagle point five-oh??) might cap you on accident!

    When has Drew Barrymore been in a movie that's been good?

    I keep hoping that she'll so offend the true actors in the family dynasty that they'll rise from their graves and drag her down with them.

    E.T.


    I don't know why anyone finds her attractive. Demi Moore is way better looking at nearly twice her age.


    As to the movie, I didn't see it and don't know why anyone would pay money to watch a re-make of a campy '70s TV show that wasn't any good. I mean, what can you do when your starting influence was crap to begin with? The premise sounds as insulting to men as the Spike TV POS network TNN devolved into.

    like I said...

    ... it was a free showing. It's always good to have friends working at the theater...:cool:

    And the moves in this go so far beyond The Matrix , that Neo would be standing there goin' "Wait a friggin' second... you can't do THAT!!!". Ferinstance:

    Assassin's target is riding in a motocross race, assassin right behind him. Assassin realizes that the girls are after him, so starts shooting at 'em. Hits the epogy of a jump does a handstand on the bike in mid air, and lets go to shoot at the girls! A LITTLE believability woulda been nice... :rolleyes:

    Oh, well... Tomb Raider is coming soon, and League of Extrodinary Gentlemen... :D

    When has Barrymore been in a good movie? Recently. And it was a damn good movie. In fact, my favorite of all time. It's called Donnie Darko. Stars Patrick Swaze. D.B. only has a minor role, thats probably why it's so good.

    Gee, it's funny how all of a sudden we are bombarded with Demi Moore and Ashton, Cameron Diaz and a younger guy right before the premiere of Charlie's Angels. Wouldn't be a publicity stunt, would it?
