Interesting set of books (don't disagree on any of them), but the movies??? :-)

The GI JOE movie I watched mainly to see how bad it would be, and it was bad. It had a moment or two that made it worth watching once, and plenty of eye candy.

As for the other I liked the first one, but the sequel was pretty weak.

And I should probably mention by 'picks' I mean these are things I chose to read or watch, not necessarily that they were any good. I only leave a one word commentary on each, and only a positive one. If I say nothing at all about it that's usually an indication that it sucked.
