    so it's come to this...

    by Stifler's Mom

    I actually dig these premiere dates

    by Hedkickboy

    Same concept as advising the fall premiere dates for the new and returning TV Shows. For the record, 9 debuted 7/31 on Cinemax and How to Lose Friends and Alienate people has been on the Showtime/TMC channels for a couple months.

    "9" Was Seriously A Massive Piece of Shit

    by Crow3711

    I couldnt believe while I was watching it that it was real. Looked great, sure. But it was fucking awful. There wasn't even a story. Maybe 3 minutes of dialogue to fill 90 minutes. That film was an abomination. I saw it on the first day too cause I thought it looked amazing. Rarely have I been so disappointed in theaters. Awful.<br /><br />And what the fuck is Crossing Over?<br /><br />And I really want to bang Juno. Really bad.

    Crossing Over...

    by zer0cool2k2

    all i know about it is that Alice Eve (She's Out of My League, Future Emma Frost) has some nude scenes in it. Therefore, I'm DVRing it. <p> and I've had The Cove DVR'd for several weeks.

    Googled Alive Eve, Crossing Over....Yikes...

    by Crow3711

    Not good. She is super hot, no doubt, but her boobs...are not. I can't believe she is that young and they are that saggy. Disappointing. No longer worth sitting through the movie whatsoever.

    Curse you EPIX!!!

    by nam0krut

    And curse you Comcast for not letting me watch Iron Man 1, Nu Trek and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Fuck over and over again!

    The Box

    by HapaPapa72

    Confusing and I nodded off at some parts. Eerie as hell, though. Cameron Diaz looked really good in it. Nothing tops her entrance in The Mask, but hey, take whatcha get.
