That makes it a true comic book movie, then. Most 22-page plots were fairly predictable; but you enjoyed the action, the dialogue (witty, off-hand remarks while punching, flying, jumping), and the splash pages. At least I did. I found the movie cool, but not the best action movie ever made.
The Borgias: Season I, Jeremy Irons plays Pope Alexander II (circa 1490's) on this Showtime show. Pretty sleazy business going on with the pope. While its based on real people and events it is hardly historically accurate.
Yeah, especially the part where Alan Rickman guest-starred and they both hijacked the castle and those carts hauling gold, only to foiled by Sir Willis and his page Samuel. :D

Vitenam is obvious.
And the fall-out: the proliferation of drugs through methods like those employed in American Gangster and The French Connection, and the use of covert operatives like Donnie Brasco.
The pull-out from Vietnam and the hard life awaiting the soldiers like Rambo and the search for new, fertile battlegrounds to fight the Soviet Union (Charlie Wilson's War) as well as places to sell our weapons and keep covert operations and special forces deployed, as when the government decides to formalize relations with "The A-Team," and design "Project X" only to face Wolverine.
(some of these films are not historically accurate)
This is also the era a great many of us were born into. Star Wars arrived and Ronald Reagan was about to begin and continue leading his administration. Tom Cruise was training to become a fighter pilot and John DeLorean released a vehicle that could be converted into a time machine.
The Artist ~ Good, it was strange to watch a movie that was (almost) silent.

Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein. On the big screen!!! The wife and I went to the double-feature Wed. nite and enjoyed it. She hadn't seen Bride before.

I went with a different approach this year and broadened my horizon by watching movies I hadn't watched before. Now with Halloween less than a week away, I'm gonna start watching my usuals: Halloween 1 and 2, Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead.
And if I have time, Redneck Zombies!
I've been watching some TV on DVD.
I really enjoy the A-Team and I sorely miss Star Trek: Enterprise.
As to the latter, I really like the way they were developing Trip and T'Pol's relationship but then they killed him! WTF!
For the former, the sad news is that there will not be another new movie. Bradley Cooper (Face) was quoted in an interview that he'd love to do it, but there isn't a strong enough market. I got used to Liam Neeson playing Hannibal, too.
Judgement at Nuremberg
Still, after many years have never seen this movie in its entirety. I was very close this time, though. Miss about the first twenty minutes or so.
Another one of those can't-change-the-channel movies: First Blood.
