When his idyllic life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive.

Red because of Helen Mirren.  Her character looks cool.

After doing some research regarding Secretariat, my fears were reasonably assuaged. Ebert gave the movie 4 stars, and Bill Nack (the journalist and the horse's biggest fan) was a consultant. Thus, this weekend I will go see my first widely distributed (i.e. not a documentary, foreign film, or limited release Oscar bait) since...I don't really remember. (Yes, I am a movie snob. Why do you ask?)

 I know you have an issue with Disney because they're mainstream, but I could have told you that they take great care when it comes to retelling true stories. Look at the exceptional attention to detail that they gave to Miracle - recreating plays exactly etc. That alone would have me leaning toward going to see it if I was interested in the story at all. I want to see it, but I know you don't take my opinion too seriously when it comes to movies anyway....because I like the mainstream stuff. That's why I never said anything to you about it to begin with

Well, one negative I found in my research was that they portray Secretariat and his connections as underdogs, which as anyone with basic familiarity of the story knows isn't remotely true. But yes, Jess, I think we've both decided to agree to disagree on movies.

Well, you know they have to take a modicum of liberty with the story if they think it might help it appeal more to the masses and make it more inspirational...that's something minor though, isn't it? As long as they stay true to the story for the most part, that could probably be overlooked.

 Red, the girls and I will go Sunday. Bruce Willis is one of those actors that just keeps getting better with age.

Well, this is more than a modicum. What makes the story of Secretariat so compelling was how amazing a horse he was and how he destroyed his rivals and became one of the few things America could feel good about in 1973. However, in no way was Secretariat an underdog. He won Horse of the Year in 1972, and the connections won the Derby and Belmont that year with a different horse. That's beyond taking artistic liberty and going into outright falsehood. I'm still going to see the movie, but if that part is true, that's a big minus in my book.

I just meant that you have to understand the production company's need to make the story more compelling to the masses and not just people who know the story. Maybe the term "underdog" is misinterpreted here. Maybe even in the movie the horse has always been amazing but people didn't have faith in it for some reason (hell if I know, I haven't seen the movie nor have I followed the story).

I'm just saying...to me, a non-follower of the story but intrigued by it nonetheless, I'm more interested in seeing an inspiring story about a subject that nobody thinks is going to succeed coming in and proving everyone wrong than I am about a subject that just proves what everyone already knows. There is a reason why they say "inspired by" and "based on" a true story. They need to allow for some changes.

I love Helen Mirren, and the thought of her playing a badass former assassin makes me a little giddy.  Still think I'm gonna wait for DVD, though.  
Oh, and also for Jackass.  Always some funny mess, but not $10-a-ticket-worthy.  (Plus, I'm boycotting all 3D movies because it's lame and played out at this point.)

I'm going to see Red this afternoon.. My brother went and saw Jackass last night, and the way he couldn't stop laughing thinking about it tells me I'm gonna go see it next weekend
As far as Conviction, I'll wait till it shows up on TV.. I think Sam Rockwell is one of the most underrated actors ever, but I can't buy Hillary Swank as a female lead.  Probably due to her large hands, mannish face, and penis.

I saw Secretariat yesterday, and as I expected, it was generally enjoyable. However, due to my knowledge of the subject, the inconsistencies with reality bothered the crap out of me.
