Have enjoyed the Bourne series, good plot & action. Hopefully the production standards and fight choreography will remain high. Like the Bourne character and plot line. Another would like to see continue in the same vane would be the character played by Kilmer in Mamet's Spartan.

despite all the goofs I like the Bourne movies.
11 was watchable but 12 was kinda weak though

Well, I look forward to "The Bourne Ultimatum".

I think it should be "The Bourne Finality" but I guess you have to go with the book.

Could be cool. Matt Damon does well in these movies.

And the Ocean crew is adding yet another member in Ocean's Thirteen. Will they ever make it to Ocean's Geriatric 24?

WILL be teh ghey. They should have left well enough alone with the first one...

The Bourne movies aren't even close to the books.

I liked the storylines but the handheld camera work made me nauseous.

Police Academy 3 (Okay, 1, 2, 4, 5, & 6 weren't exactly gems, either... )


I think you may be onto something...

I like the Bourne movies a lot. I liked The Bourne Identity novel a lot but I couldn't get into the Bourne Supremacy, if I had read it 20 years ago it would have been cool. It's too dated. They were making a big fuss about the premature Chinese take over of Hong Kong leading to WW3? Who gave a rip?

I ejected Ocean's 12 when it got the part about Julia Robert's character acting like Julia Roberts. Stupid.

I saw Oceans 12 on satellite a few weeks ago, and when it hit the Julia Roberts Plot Twist I suddenly went “WTF?” I was suddenly very glad I didn’t see it in a theater. There is no way I’d see the next flick unless they suddenly get a massive infusion of mental horsepower.

Aside from Search for Spock I'd say that list is right on.
I'd throw out Terminator 3, but that's debatable. It had some redeeming qualities, the aged cyborg not being one of them... nor was using a different actor for John Connor. The story was ok, despite it being totally contradictory to the theme of "there is no fate" of the first two.

Bourne, I'd see for sure.

Ocean, I'd wait until somebody else rented it - like I did with 12.

Bourne: Identity was outstanding; Supremacy less so.

Ocean's: Eleven was fun for cast AND audience; Twelve only for the cast. It felt like cutting room floor crap from Eleven.

Same with The Big Bounce and After the Sunset; both pointless and predictable with nothing for the audience but watching some pretty people enjoy working vacations in Hawaii and the Bahamas.
