1. I thought it was a decent popcorn movie. I rented it and thought...

"well, it was better than a lot of stuff on TV tonight"
Other 2 people in my living room thought the same...

8. Yes there was a consensus among us that it was good movie.

And a fine time was had by all.

Although popcorn is not part of our treats until the holiday eggnog factor is made up for.

2. I enjoyed it.

I know it's gotten some bad reviews, but I thought the plot was interesting and the characters appealing .... I'd see it again.

7. We ended up pretty much liking it.

There were a few holes in the action towards the end. I mean, people know all this high tech stuff by which the caper is getting pulled off - but then they handcuff their antagonist to a spot not two and a half feet away from the phone? Things like that.

But on the whole, an enjoyable flick.

3. Recommend "Man on Wire" instead

It is cringe-inducing.

4. I loved it

If you want, you can watch it free online here...

http://www.putlocker.com/file/32518148BA0FE4C0#

Hit the "Continue as free user" bar when it pops up and it then goes right to the film. Putlocker does that to make sure you're a real person and not a computer program sucking up bandwidth.

I also liked a sort of similar dude-on-ledge film called The Ledge. If you think you might be interested you can watch that one here...

9. you're very welcome

Sockshare is another good one that's basically identical to Putlocker. Gorillavid and Movpod are also good ones and are similar to each other the same way. I know there's a lot of other ones, but I stick with these mostly because there's usually no buffering nonsense with the sites being too busy and since there's nothing you have to download or sign up for in order for them to function.... I'm really squeamish about downloading something I'm not sure about or signing up for something I'm not sure about either.

I used to just do a google search for any particular film, but I found a site that has almost everything there is with lists of links to places like putlocker, sockshare, gorillavid, etc. where you can watch each one... http://www.1channel.ch/

The only thing that's odd about this site is that whenever you do a search for a movie title it almost always tells you the search is "invalid" but if you just do the search again it works and finds what you're looking for. I figure it must do that on purpose for some reason though I have no idea why. Maybe it's another way to keep computer programs from sucking up bandwidth. That site has damn near everything though... current films, foreign films, ancient films, documentaries, obscure films, live concerts, etc.

I also found another site that lists links for tv series programs rather than movies... http://watchseries.li/

I found a lot of good British tv series programs there like Monty Python's Flying Circus, Are You Being Served, Prime Suspect with Helen Mirren (I just LOVE her!), Spooks, Fawlty Towers, etc.

As I understand it, the sites like putlocker, etc. are sites that let you store your movies to get them off your computer or avoid having to burn them onto a disc which they let you do for free as long as you allow users to watch them. Those sites don't have their own search capabilities, so that's where sites like 1channel and watchseries come in... they just list the films and give the links to those sites where they're stored so people can watch them. Seems like a fair deal to me. I'm thinking of copying and storing my own movies that I've bought. I really hate spending the money on a DVD only to get it scratched or stepped on or the dog eats it or whatever. Would be nice to have copies that don't hog space on my own computer in case something happens to my original discs that I've purchased. I don't care if other people want to watch them - I'd just like to have copies to store somewhere off my computer.
