Didn't Titan AE bomb out when it was released?

In theaters, yes. But it is quite good.

The Bourne series are definitely my favorites. I also liked Good Will Hunting, Saving Private Ryan, Ocean's Eleven and Thirteen, The Brothers Grimm, Syriana, and I thought he did a great job in The Talented Mr. Rippley.

Is it true Matt Damon wore a green speedo in The Talented Mr. Ripley?

LOL. Something like speedos, yes. You can also see his bare bum in the film.

Yes, esp in "La Memoire Dans la Peau"= "The Memory in the Skin", which is how the French titled it, based on that microchip in his skin. The Bourne Identity i guess is the original title.

And that golfing one, Bagger Vance, with Will whatsit of I Robot.

And the recent FBI/CIA one, with william Hurt etc. And the Internal Affairs one with Caprio. I'm sure there's others. But I was very disappointed by Brothers Grimm.

i liked Syriana too.

The reason why Brothers Grimm sucked is because it was delayed one year
through the messy editing of producer Harvey Weinstein.

I just watched the third Jason Bourne film last night. It is great.

It's extraordinary how much fun a chase can be, like "The Fugitive", when you like the character. And Damon is stunningly good at being likeable.

Also I thought it was a wonderful film from the point of view of archetypes. The idea that he is hunting for his past, for his lost self, and that he discovers that he chose, under terrible pressure, to suppress his real self is really moving/meaningful. It is very satisfying, and I watched the credits roll for ages, enjoying the music with a smile of pure film-enjoyment. :D :D :D

I then watched " 28 weeks later" which was repetitive exploitative c**p, and do not understand people who think it has anything like the depth of the first 28 film :? .

But Damon was good. :)

What about that one with Jack Nicholson, Leo Di Caprio and others about Boston's mafia? He was playing a mole in the police while Caprio was a mole in the mafia and SPOILERS Nicholson was at the same time a mole for the FBI XD

The yearbook staff at my school has a bunch of Matt Damon pictures in the yearbook,
as if he was a teacher.

We just watched The Departed in the hospital. Minus Leonardo DiCaprio, it was a pretty good movie.
