Love Scorsese, but it's going to be tough to bring out the full story (as written by Lehane) in the movie.Edited to add Dennis Lehane is the same author who wrote "Gone Baby Gone" and "Mystic River". Both books were well adapted to the big screen, so I have high hopes for Shutter Island. Still, read the book first.

"Tinsel Town" is our big movie theater. The early bird special is $5, seven days a week. And movies after 6:00 are $7 something. And if I wanted to wait a few months, I can always go to the "$1 theater" which is about 2 miles away.

But so was "Transformers" and most people I talked to thought that movie sucked (unfortunately, I liked it). Avatar's storyline was initially unique, then the story faded into man screwing over another culture.Basterds: Threw me for a loop. As much as I wanted to see it, I didn't read anything on it for fear of spoiling the movie. First of all, it was a fantasy tale of WWII with little fact. Unless I slept through History class at Euclid, I was not aware the entire Nazi High Command (including Schikelgruber) was killed in a movie theatre. Okay, I can still buy into a fantasy take on WWII. But was with ALL THE TALKING?....The movie did not concentrate enough on the "Basterds" themselves. And what the hell was "Ryan" from the "Office" doing there.Hurt Locker: Reminded me of an independent production. Maybe I was expecting an epic production like Black Hawk Down or something more dramatic like Rules of Engagement. Just didn't blow me away.All three movies I would watch again, maybe even buy the DVDs (after the prices come down) and I will begrudgingly up my grade on all three to a B-.....................But Shutter Island is still a C-..........
