So in the past few weeks I've been using my Netflix instant queue to watch all sorts of old school spy thrillers. Like 40's and 50's movies. Just saw one the other day that was one of the coolest films I've ever seen called "Foreign Correspondent" about a news paper man who gets pulled into the machinations of an international shadow organization set right on the eve of WWII. Yep, straight up a Joe fan's alley. The getaway scene in the beginning is something I could see a WWII era version of Cobra pulling. If you're into older style noir, or suspense films I'd recommend checking this one out. It's a real treat.
Also, I never realized how great Hitchcock was at spy style thrillers. I checked out a WWI film of his on instant queue called "Secret Agent" very cool, even if the picture and sound quality wasn't very good. Tons of Bogie films on there aswell, like "Dead Reckoning" which was great.

I just finished watching Kick Ass a few minutes ago. It was SO much fun! Start to finish I enjoyed it. I read the comic series, and loved that, and was very pleased with what they kept, and what they changed. I was a little disappointed at the changes made to some of the origin stories, but in 2 hours there is only so much they can do, so simplifying them was a must.
All in all, a fantastic film, I rate it right up there with the best action films, and the best comic/book/game/whatever adaptations out there.
Fun, with a capitol f%$# yeah!

Iron Man 2 on DVD! Got to love the bootleg market oversees. I picked up on the 6th. To bad it does not have the ending credits and is a little dark. I can’t wait till I get back and pick it up on blu ray
