Looks pretty interested. (LOL) Next…one that I’ve actually seen already, SAVING PRIVATE PEREZ. At first, I thought – OHH NAWWW…then I watched it. Hilarious. Some of ya’ll will get it and some of you won’t. Next, a movie that doesn’t hit theaters until 2012…BATTLESHIP…looks like a cool cast…but…ahhh, I don’t know. Could end up cheesy…look at that crap Skyline. Finally…one that’s actually coming out in  in just a few weeks in selected AMC theaters, ATROCIOUS…which if done right…looks to be a pretty dope flick.
