    Default 2012 or old dogs?

    Seeing a movie tonight, leaning towards 2012 because it will not be out much longer and seems to be good. But which one would you see?

    No one should see Old Dogs. It's so sad that Travolta and Williams have sunk so low. At least 2012 was good dumb loud fun with some excellent effects.

    Out of curiosity, I figured I'd see what the rottentomatoes rating was on Old Dogs. All I can say is "OUCH!"

    5%? Man, that's gotta sting.

    Ninja Assasin, Old Dogs, and 2012 all did poor on metacritic. Of course that doesn't mean you won't enjoy the movie. I generally go by Metacritic when going to the movies if it's green, and I want to watch it, its been a good movie most of the time. Yellow is kind of 60/40 for me if I want to watch the movie already i'll go ahead and watch it.

    I'm going tonight going to watch either Up in the Air the George Clooney movie, or Brothers.

    I did enjoy Wildhogs and I do like Travolta, but I'll wait til watch Old Dogs on DVD or cable. Yeah it depends on what you are in the mood for. Armored looks like it might be decent.

    I have to say 2012 was pretty impressive with the audio and visual effects. But it did drag on with the story line a bit. Might be something I buy when it comes out but not immediately.
