Yeah I did which is really a big reason why I went to go see the movie.

 

Did anyone else walk out of the movie feeling stupid.  The fact that these peoples minds can do math so fast like that with all the distractions blows my mind.

That was a HORRIBLE movie.

I could barely sit through the whole movie.

No idea, I just heard it sucked from a couple people. Haven't pursued any reviews or anything about it, so I don't know if its good or not. I generally like Jason Statham, but Crank WAS weak, so who knows.

I liked crank actually.

This is nothing like crank however.

It's the best movies I saw this year next to no country for old men.

Eh, I thought 21 was OK. Maybe I didn't think it was that great because I was pretty tired throughout the movie, and actually dozed off for a minute or two a couple times.

I actually think the card counting would be do-able. Maybe tricky at first, but with some practice, I think I could do it. The hardest part for me would be picking up the key word that the spotter says, and remembering what current count that word equals.
