The climactic fight between Jason Statham and Clive Owen in ‘Killer Elite’ knocked everyone on their ass and was so amazing and action-packed, audiences all over the world were left breathless.

they should factor in the price of 3d tickets. does 3d really make a movie better? seems more like a ploy to charge a lot more. is it just me or do those annoying 3d glasses make everything darker? i’ll be willing to pay more for 3d movies if they had the technology to do it without those glasses.
lion king is a classic and a beloved movie by many. on the hand, a bad movie is still a bad movie in 3d or not.

HAHA at Abduction. A cinematic abortion. I hear Moneyball is good, however.

Lion King is a classic and it is a movie parents and children can see together. ( = $’s) throw in 3d costs and there you go. Moneyball is a great film, Brad haters are blinded.

The same to all the Lautner, J. Stattham, C. Owen, and R. De niro fans and the cute dolphin fans.. I hope they are not going to kill themselves since Brad beat them.

The Lion King is for all ages. So awesome.
