    She's gone until next Friday for training, so looking for good movies that generally women aren't all that interested in seeing, or ones that she'd tell me to turn down the volume. Watched Social Network yesterday, didn't expect my subwoofer to get that much of a workout.

    I am getting Inglorious Basterds and Fight Club (seen both, but worth seeing again), and thinking about the Kill Bill series, Expendables, Hot Fuzz and Thin Red Line-reviews say it pops up a message with a note from the Director that it's meant to be played loud-don't want to disobey :).

    Any other recommendations?

    That is an interesting thought...I have the Extended cuts on DVD, but haven't watched the Blu's.

    Might need to bump up my Netflix package to make sure I have a second disk for the weekend, or check the local Redbox for some on my list. Looks like I can take Expendables off my queue, Redbox has it. All my others are too old.

    Just looked up that actress, I might be odd, but actually not the kind of thing I'm looking for :) Though I guess they do say Piranha 3D was actually pretty good.

    Definitely getting Expendables. Transformers is odd. Got the first one, only got the second one at her insistence...not sure what she liked in that one. At least she didn't insist on buying the Crystal Skull Indiana Jones, I generally refuse to acknowledge it's existence.

    Yeah..... I think they actually should have stopped with Temple of Doom there.

    For me this usually means movies with really weird twists or plots, odd cinematography as well as sci-fi and anything with lots and lots of explosions, gun battles and car chases. (Oh, and really stupid humor)

    Some recommendations just off the top of my head:

    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
    Lethal Weapon
    The Fifth Element
    Sin City
    Wild Things
    Hot Shots Part Deux

    Those don't all follow my stated "criteria", they're just some that came to mind as I read this thread.

    The Expendables is great, and if you want an absolute sonic terror check out the extended version of Rambo (4th one), that one will shake your home theater, especially the end.

    Enjoy

    Since my wife won't watch them, horror movies.
    I just watched Paranormal Activity the other night and thought it was pretty good.

    Talk about a sub workout. Pun not really intended. :)

    Have you seen Shooter?
