For me it would have to be "Shanghai Noon" I just flat out enjoyed it. I have seen quite a few since, but non were as enjoyable as that one. How bout you? What was the last movie you saw at a theater you just plain enjoyed the heck out of, & really liked.

Lord of the Rings, the Two Towers. Sooon it will be XMen II, as I am going to see that this weekend. And if it sucks, for sure Matrix Reloaded. I watch teh first one at least once a month, especially the lobby scene.

Yep, The REAL meaning of 'persuit of happiness' is chasing your son for a little tickle session.

Casino Royal, as I recall that would have been late 60's. No, I do not recall enjoying it, possibly that is why it was the last movie I watched at the theatre.

LotR: Two Towers. I generally don't like going out to the movies.

I gave up on theaters a while ago. Between crowds, lines, crummy seats (I’m 6’4”), overpriced tickets and hit-or-miss sound and projection it usually isn’t worth it for me. I’ll take my DircTV/Tivo, DVD/LD, DD/DTS 5.1 and 35” TV. For what it costs the GF and I to go to single film I can buy the DVD and enjoy it as many times as we want (with all the extras). The last film I saw in theater was Episode I and it *was* worth it. I might drag myself out for X2 and the Matrix Reloaded. Best theater experience ever was the original Star Wars on it’s first release. Words can't quite describe what an absolute phenomenon that film was. You’d have to have participated to understand it. I can remember the first time I saw it like it was yesterday. To me it seemed like the film lasted about 5 minutes. I never moved once after the "A long time ago..." came up. I was in the exact same position in my seat when it ended as when it started. I have no memory of blinking during the entire film. I ended up seeing it in the same theater 24 times. A very close second would be Aliens. A perfect print shown in a newly constructed THX certified theater that was setup perfectly and cranked up. The THX test trailer (The audience is listening…) had people screaming, hollering and applauding like a sporting event, it was THAT good. Holy shit, what a ride that screening was! I ended up going back once more to see what I missed and a third time just to watch the audience react to the film. That was as good as watching the movie itself.

Anger Management was good. Jack and Adam are cool. I also enjoyed Basic. I didn't care for Tears of the Sun.

I think the last movie I saw in the theater at all was 'Chicago' and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Link Posted: 5/1/2003 10:56:55 PM EDT
the last good movie I saw at a theater was probably "FULL METAL JACKET" I hardly ever go to the movies anymore, they just dont make very many good ones lately. [sleep]

I love the movies, but so many anymore just plain suck. Two Towers did not suck. X2 and the Matrix Reloaded will not suck. Eager for Kill Bill.

Any movie I get to see with my daughters. Except for that f*#king pokamon movie a couple of years ago.

I only go to about 3 or 4 movies a year. Most of that stuff is a massive waste of film. The last movie I saw was Tears of the Sun. It was OK, but not one of my favorites by a long shot. The last one I saw that I thought was actually worth the investment of time & money was The Two Towers (only 7 months to The Return of The King!). The Last of the Mohicans was excellent ("One of these days you and I are going to have a serious disagreement!")

I hate to sound so ignorant, but what is two towers about? It's not about 9/11 I'm guessing, as I really haven't heard of it before this post on movies.
Link Posted: 5/2/2003 2:18:02 PM EDT
The last really good one? Lord of the Rings, the Two Towers. (Searchfortruth, it's the second in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Next one is Return of the King.) Going to se X2 tonight. I expect to be entertained and wowed by the special effects, but I'm not expecting to be bowled out of my seat by it. I'm waiting for Matrix: Reloaded to do that.
Link Posted: 5/2/2003 2:23:33 PM EDT
It's rare that I go to the theater, I usually wait for the DVD. The exceptions have been, We Were Soldiers, Black Hawk Down and Antyhing Star Wars, Star Trek or comic book related. The best movie I have seen in the theater in many, many years is LOTR, Two Towers.

Probably "Tears of the Sun". I liked that. Before that it was definitely Two Towers. Anybody seen The Hunted yet? Looks like it might be interesting...

Just like a JarHead Marine! HAHAHAHA just kidding bud your missing great si-fi fantasy stuff here. I would read the book first, than see the movies. My wife who did not read the books loved the movies alone. long movies, 3hrs each. bring rations when watching.

lord of the ring: fellowship of the ring was the last good movie i saw in he theater. two towers wasn't as good in my opinion. i think i screwed myself by reading the book right after i saw the first movie. movies are never as good as the book.

"What A Girl Wants" with my son next to me and my 7 year-old daughter sitting on my lap for the last half of the movie spilling popcorn on me.

I saw X men 2 today. It was pretty good, but I don't know why they killed professor X in the end.

It's been quite a while.. The last movie I saw was "We Were Soldiers" IIRC.. And it was quite an experience to watch..

Amen Brother! I've been to the opening day of every Star Wars movie since A New Hope, I take the day off of work. Of Course, I was 5 when the first one came out, but I still saw it 7 times in the theater and my uncle got me a bootleg tape (might have been Beta, that was a long time ago)! BTW, Attack of the Clones was WAY better than Phantom Menace.

I enjoyed Star wars when I was a teenager. It is still pretty good but seems a little dated. I remember the critics at the time it came out said it was a movie made for kids age 5 to 7 years old. They always know.[rolleyes] We saw The Phantom Menice at the theater with the kids of our youth group, & we have the last one on dvd to watch tomarrow for the 1st time.

I still watch it every time it somes on the Scifi channel (which is pretty goofy considering I own all of the movies on tape or DVD) and its still great. You work with a youth group? Thats cool, I used to know an ex Special Forces guy that was part of a church youth group. Nice guy, did a lot of good to those kids.
