I watched Heat, one of my all-time favorites today. Everything about that movie is outstanding. The plot, the cast, the acting, the directing, everything. Phenominal movie!

Glad to hear that you enjoyed The Departed kh. I've only seen that movie one time, and I loved it. I actually need take some time and watch it again. I wonder if there is any more word on a possible spin-off with Mark Wahlbergs character?!?!? That could be pretty sweet.


Me nieces were in town again so I watched some more movies with them:
The Wizard of Oz (Yes, again)
Finding Nemo &
Shrek


I just watched The Dukes of Hazzard movie on tv. I had seen this movie before, and I thought it was a let down, especially being that it was from the Broken Lizard group. The Unrated dvd is definitely better, in a perverted way. Speaking of BL, I really hope Super Troopers 2 is good, since basically everything put out by BL afterwards has flopped and hasn't been fantastic. Granted, I liked certain elements of Club Dread but it was still disappointing; same with Beerfest. If Super Troopers 2 isn't any good then I'm giving up on these guys.

I dunno if it could be good, it would all depend on what direction it takes since he quit at the end. If he went Vigilante or into crime, maybe but to have him as a "Boondock Saints" type movie would suck me thinks

Wow! I just watched an outstanding movie: Blood Diamond. Excellent, incredible film! I may have even enjoyed it more than The Departed. Could even be my favorite movie of '06. I'm gonna have to think about it some more, but wow, it was fantastic! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

There's a lot of subtle law enforcement humor between the lines most viewers don't get (I know---it's what I do). "Super Troopers" has almost a cult-like following with a lot of agencies. It's no wonder they are making another one to entice us to spend our donut money on something else like their sequel.

BTW, I didn't care for the movie myself :rolleyes:

Not that I've heard of.

I've only seen the first and second ones, never saw the third. Loved the first one, like C said, its a classic. I don't remember much of the second one (it has been many years since I have seen it). If I remember correctly, it was mediocre at best. A couple good things, but mostly bad?!?!? Like I said, it's been a while. The third? How was/is it? God awful?

What's with the recent trend of naming Special Edition DVDs after lines (or in this case songs) from the movie? They did it with Princess Bride ("Dread Pirate Edition"), Ferris Bueller's Day Off ("Bueller...Bueller...Edition"), Tommy Boy ("Holy Schnike" Edition)...what gives?

Anyway, tomorrow's my last day of Spring Break, so I'm watching a whole bunch of DVDs that I haven't watched in a while. Yesterday I watched Kill Bill 1 & 2, I'm watching The Goonies right now, and tomorrow I'll watch Batman and Batman Returns.

Rented a few movies tonight and only watched one which was "Smokin' Aces." This was a really horrible movie. The action is few and far between (two gunfights in two hours? the first hour is 99% TAKLING), the plot is jumbled, the dialogue is really awful/messy and there are a lot of really random stupid subplots that were really unnecessary.

There are two great cameos by Jason Bateman and Matthew Fox that were HYSTERICAL. Other than that, avoid this flick cos it's crappy. On the blog, I gave it ** out of ****

I'll try to watch movies 2 and 3 today or tomorrow! :thumbsup:

Saw that yesterday and loved it. Hell, my folks went and saw it tonight and I got a call afterwards saying how much they both loved it.

Recent films and their ratings:
"Hot Fuzz"- ***1/2 out of ****
"Blood Diamond"- *** out of ****- very good movie albeit a bit long.
"The Last King of Scotland"- **** out of ****- FANTASTIC film and Forest Whitaker is SUPERB. Seriously, I can't stress that enough. :thumbsup:

I agree, but I did like the action scenes. What I just couldn't understand was how all the characters fit together. The way it was all presented confused me. Also like you said the dialogue was too hard to comprehend and it seemed like everyone was talking with a muzzle on. :(

Yeah, the dialogue was all crazy muffled. It's like they were trying to for the noir effect with quick and direct dialogue, but it sounded like they were chewing on newspaper. There isn't much character interaction though, aside from the cops and the mob boss (drop me a PM if you wanna get detailed. I don't wanna spoil it). Plus, they only had 1-2 action scenes. Plus, the subplot with the karate kid!?!?! What the crap was that?!?! Just a huge let down.



Haha! Seriously? Even with the church scene? :razz:

Oh definately! Mom said she laughed during the first church scene (from above, wink wink) and dad loves horror movies like me (he and I saw "Land of the Dead" and "Slither" together), so he loved the gorier scenes. Mom said she was laughing pretty hard at the end comment from __________ when they said, "This really really hurts!"

I haven't been able to watch much of anything lately because I've been super busy. However,

Last night I did watch the Night of the Living Dead remake. It was on the Univ. HD channel and it looked amazing. Great movie. Easily one of my favorite and one of the better remakes out there. :thumbsup:

Following NOTLD, I watched the Butterfly Effect.



It's good to hear that you fellas enjoyed Hot Fuzz. I'm looking forward to checking that one out. And it's kinda disappointing to hear that Smokin' Aces wasn't all that good.

"Pursuit of Happyness"

Not exactly a "feel good" movie for me (even though you know at the on-set that you know Chris Gardner ends up a bazillionaire and on Orca, I mean, Oprah).

It was more like watching a wrestling match between Don Knotts and Andre the Giant. I kept thinking "how much more can this guy take?". I admire Gardner for prevailing over all his obstacles in life (who doesn't have them?) but the movie was torture and I just wanted it to be over! :tired:

Tried to watch The New World. Disjointed, historically inaccurate, and downright boring. After Mrs Chux complained about these points, I checked the clock and realized it had been on for 45 minutes. We decided that, since nothing had happened and the movie was almost halfway over and not worth watching, it would be a shame to waste the time on the other half of the movie.

Opie knows how to put a movie together. And to pick a composer. I've always enjoyed the music to "Apollo 13", especially the astronaut's preparation and launch sequence. Opie has worked with composer James Horner a lot (check out www.imdb.com) Like John Williams, Horner has been one of my all time movies sound track favorites.

BTW, those of you with kids who have suffered through the eleventeenth gazillionth viewing of "Land Before Time" (the first one), that's Horner, too. Even with cartoons, he produces cool stuff.

CRAP!!! I completely forgot to set my DVR to record that. :mad: I had never heard of the show before until I was browsing the dvd selection at WM a few weeks ago. It looked and sounded very interesting, then I noticed that it starred Peter Krause of Six Feet Under so I got really excited. He's awesome. It also stars some other good actors too. I've only heard/read good things about it since then so I may just go ahead and buy it. I still don't believe I forgot to record it.

Sarah Michelle Gellar drops in on the Grudge 2, the dismal sequel to remake of the Japanese horror film. The ghosts spread to the US, so I'm sure we'll see more sequels in this franchise. Unfortunately.

Gellar is sales rep trying to figure out the horrifying visions that have plagued her since childhood (or in the alternate ending, since birth) in the supernatural thriller The Return. Sweet Zombie Jesus was this one slow-going.

I'm not a big fan of crime drama, but The Departed was pretty solid fare. Director Scorcese chronicles three informants working both sides of the law in this one. Some big names (Jack Nicholson, Leo DeCaprio, Matt Damon) supported by big names (Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, and Mark Wahlberg) all lend talent and believablity to the story. Helluva ending.

Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek play latter-day Robin Hoods in the craptacular Bandidas. This western was written by Luc "Fifth Element" Besson.

I've still been on the Seinfeld kick; almost finished with season 4.

Last night I watched Candyman. I love this movie. One of the better horror movies out there. This movie actually scared me when I first watched it. I love horror movies, as many of you know, but its rare for me to watch one and genuinely be scared, and Candyman accomplished this when I first watched it many years ago. Ya gotta love Virginia Madsen, Tony Todd and Xander Berkeley; they all deliver in this film. Can't forget about Ted Raimi either. :thumbsup:

But I plan on watching some movies this weekend...

Earlier today, after finishing up Seinfeld, I watched Cabin Fever.

I just finished watching The Hitcher (remake). This movie really wasn't all that bad. It was much better than I was anticipating, I actually liked it. It was a good edge of your seat thriller/horror movie. I even found myself screaming at the tv a couple of times. Sophia Bush is wicked hot too, I've had a thing for her for a while now. :lipsrsealed: :love: But like I said, this movie really surprised me. I'd recommend it as a rental, especially for those who are fans of the genre and have seen the original.

This movie was okay; had it's twists and moments. Some parts were really funny, others fell short. Not as good as most of Todd Phillip's other work.

I started Seinfeld season 6 today, watched the first disc.

I also watched The Phantom of the Opera (2004) for the first time. I thought this movie was wonderful. I love the music and the story transferred really well into this film. Great acting, great singing, great directing, great production... everything was really well done. Two thumbs up. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

I still need to finish watching season 7. I just finished year one of grad school, so i'll have a lot of free time this summer in between working, some reading and preparing my syllabus for both of the classes i'm teaching in the fall.

I was raised on the musical of PHANTOM, so I can't watch it because Michael Crawford IS the Phantom in my eyes. But Emmy Rossum.......:love: You want a fun fact? Gerard Butler, who played King Leonidas in "300" IS THE PHANTOM in the movie version of "Phantom." How does that strike ya?! :crazed:

I decided to have a Romero marathon tonight. Watched the Milennium Edition of "Night of the Living Dead" and now onto the extended cut of "Dawn of the Dead" which is my favorite cut. I doubt I'll get through it all tonight (ha, Miguel just took a bite of his woman's neck, love that part!), so it'll resume tomorrow evening maybe followed by "Day" and "Land." GOOD times! :thumbsup:

So are you telling me you haven't seen it? I've been a Phantom fan for a very long time, I've even seen the stage musical (not on Broadway though). I've always loved it. But if you haven't seen this movie, you really should. It is very well done. As a fan, I highly recommend it.

Believe it or not, this was actually the deciding factor in me watching it yesterday. I was searching through my dvd collection for something to watch, and for something that I had never seen before (I probably own 50+ dvds that I've never actually seen). So I came across Phantom, and having loved 300 and Butler's performance, it was on my to-watch list, so I decided to give it a go.

I doubt I'll get through it all tonight (ha, Miguel just took a bite of his woman's neck, love that part!), so it'll resume tomorrow evening maybe followed by "Day" and "Land." GOOD times! :thumbsup:

Awesome! Great idea. I actually have the next few days off so I may have to take down that very same marathon, dvd versions/releases and all. :)


I just wish that DDD would have another huge sale so i could get the whole series of SFU and some other stuff. What's taking them so long?!?! :(

It'll be here soon. I don't think they've ever had one in May though, I'm pretty sure its June. I hope DVDPlanet runs their 20% sale (along with DeepDiscount) too, like they did last time... I have like $250+ in store credit there that I need to use.

Man, SFU is a show I could re-watch at any moment. I absolutely loved that show. I think I watched the entire series on dvd in around 25 days. :crazed:, thats how good it was. It probably had the best series finale out of any show that I've seen. I think Caesar said it "went out in style" and boy did it ever! :thumbsup:



Watched more of Seinfeld season 6 today.

Finished my Romero marathon tonight!! Watched all of NOTLD and part of Dawn on saturday, finished up Dawn sunday night; couldn't do much last night due to HEROES and 24, but tonight knocked down Day and Land.

Day is so underrated, man!! Each time I watch it, I enjoy it more. It's a good contrast to Dawn due to how close and claustrophobic it is. You got that in Dawn, but it's amplified ten fold due to the conditions and the schmuck military.

Still, thats' a lot of zombie goodness to take in!! Am breaking tonight due to Jericho and LOST and then tomorrow night, 28 DAYS LATER in preps for the sequel on friday! :thumbsup:

I was going to take down the Romero marathon but I wasn't in the mood, I know, crazy huh? :crazed: I did watch NOTLD though, millennium edition. But after that, I went in a different direction...

I've actually been doing sort of an Argento marathon the past couple of days. Yesterday I took down Suspiria and Inferno. Suspiria is just awesome, my favorite work of Dario's thus far. Inferno is pretty good too. The cinematography in both are phenominal. The colors and atmosphere, can't be beat. The music is awesome as well, The Goblins; excellent soundtracks. I have the Suspiria Ltd Ed. DVD so I've been listening to the Suspiria soundtrack all day. It's comforting to know that The Goblins are scoring Argento's The Third Mother too. I hope that The Third Mother is filmed like Suspiria and Inferno, as far as the cinematography and colors go; it should be, and should be a great film, I can't wait to see it.

After Suspiria and Inferno I watched Dario's Deep Red. This was a very good film as well, but I still favor Suspiria. Deep Red wasn't shot in the same style as Suspiria and Inferno but everything still worked, really well might I add. The music on this one was really good too, also scored by The Goblins. Some people consider Deep Red to be Argento's true masterpiece, but I'm sticking with Suspiria. I have yet to see all of his work but I'm working on it.

Within the next couple of days I plan on taking down The Bird with the Crystal Plumage again (I just watched this one for the first time several months ago), The Cat o'Nine Tails (never seen) and other misc. stuff Argento worked on and directed, like Demons 1&2 and Jenifer (his season 1 ep from Masters of Horror).

I've taken down Demons and Jenifer thus far; I'll try and watch the rest this weekend.


I watched a horrible movie tonight; Black Christmas (remake). I was actually hoping that this was going to be better than the original, but it was not; it was much, much worse. This movie was just stupid and it seemed like it was never going to end. It was about 20 minutes longer than it should have been. But even if it was shorter it would have still sucked; there was no saving this disaster. The only good things about this movie was it's gore (even though most of it was over the top and didn't make any sense) and the chicks. Michelle Trachtenberg, Lacey Chabert, Crystal Lowe and Katie Cassidy were all looking super fine in the movie. Except for these two things, well, one really, everything else about the movie was awful. I was really close to turning this one off but I had to see how the crapfest ended.

I watched "The Astronaut Farmer" which was a really, really good movie. It was the base theater so for only $3 I couldn't lose. I was surprised by it though and would recommend it. If you don't know what it's about, it's just a normal man that was discharged from the military astronaut program and builds his own spaceship. I won't go any further for fear of ruining it.


I also watched "Alpha Dog" yesterday. This too was an amazing, albeit sad, movie. Although they basically TOLD you the ending throughout the entire movie I just didn't wanna believe that it would actually happen.

I watched both Shrek 2 and Spider-Man 3 tonight.

I enjoyed "Shrek 2" a lot more than I used to. I've changed my mind about it. I now like it just as much as the first one. It's got so much good stuff, like Puss in Boots and Larry King as the Ugly Stepsister.

As for Spidey, I didn't see it in theaters this time. It was a bootleg. But I don't feel guilty, since I already paid to see it three times in theaters. I'm sure Sony can forgive me.

I watched a fair amount of stuff this weekend:

I started Seinfeld season 7 and breezed through the first disc.

I also wathched the complete second season of The Girls Next Door. This show is just great; definitely a guilty pleasure.

I watched Hollywoodland which turned out to be a pretty good little movie; a very interesting story. It was slow at times but it kept my interest throughout. Adrien Brody stole the show; he really delivered in his performance.

I also watched Wrong Turn. Overall I find this movie to be enjoyable, I've watched it several times. Some of the acting and dialogue is bad and cheesy (typical), but it is a decent horror/thriller flick nonetheless. I was kinda taken back when I discovered that they have already filmed and are releasing a sequel to this movie, Wrong Turn 2 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0804555/). :rolleyes:

I put on Blade last night but fell asleep half-way through. I plan on finishing this one and then taking down the second and third installments as well.

QUESTION: So who here has seen Spiderman 3, and what did you think about it? I don't want to venture into the Spiderman 3 thread for fear of spoilers; so no spoilers please. I see where GG has seen it multiple times so I can only assume he really liked it (unless he's not right in the head). ;) But I've heard mixed things about this one. I've had people tell me it wasn't good at all and not to even bother seeing it in the theater. I'm just curious as to what you all thought b/c I trust you alls judgement (for the most part :p)?

Oh, I'm definitely not right in the head, but that's beside the point. :D I still liked the movie anyway. I saw it a couple times in theaters, but I've watched it a lot more on a certain website (hint: it rhymes with Flu Lube :p). I seem to be the one who liked it the most on the forums. Some liked it, some hated it. There is some cheesy stuff in it, but it's (mostly) fun. The good stuff heavily outweighs the bad stuff in the movie. But if you want to be entertained, I'd definitely recommend you check it out. Especially if you liked the first two films.

Kramer set a flag of PR on fire in that episode and there was public backlash against it...so it got yanked. It was the second to last episode, I believe.

I watched The Green Mile last night, for the first time in a looooong time. Outstanding movie!!! Great story and well adapted from King's novel. Tom Hanks really delivers, as always. Michael Clarke Duncan nails the role of John Coffey. The other guards, David Morse, Barry Pepper and Jeffrey DeMunn are wonderful as well. All of the actors in this film are very well liked, with exception to Percy and "Wild Bill"; even though Wild Bill kinda grows on you because of the entertainment he adds. It's great how you actually grow to love the inmates that are on death row too, even you know that they committed horrific crimes, well, with one exception (that we know of). You really don't want to see them get executed but you know it is inevitable. It was really rough to see Eduard D. go, especially with how he went out (no water on the sponge). Mr. Jingles is awesome. So was Toot-Toot. He always cracks me up with that practice walk down the Green Mile and the execution... "I'm walking the Green Mile, I'm walking the Green Mile... I'm sitting in Old Sparky.. I'm getting all electroed.. getting all electroed... putting my little cap on..." (not to mention what he wants Mae West to do) lol Overall, an excellent movie; one I would watch much more often if it wasn't 3 hrs in length. Although I have to admitt, the 3 hrs does go by rather quickly. Two thumbs up, :thumbsup::thumbsup:, highly recommended to those who haven't seen it.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty horrible. I was going to turn it off actually, but for some reason I decided to finish it. I maybe laughed three or four times throughout the entire movie. I like Mike Judge, even though I can live without King of the Hill (never was a fan of that show). I hope his next effort is much better. I can't stand Mya Roudolph so that probably had something to do with it too.

Watched: "Letters from Iwo Jima" and "The Good German" this weekend. "Letters" was superb, a great companion to "Flags of our Fathers" and if I were asked, I'd have to say I enjoyed "Letters" more due to its unique viewpoint and narrative.

"The Good German" was really crappy. It tried to be a noir film, but only went so far as to make it black and white. There was no noir-esque dialogue, action, intrigue, suspense, romance, etc. Really boring 2 hours.

I've been on a vampire kick lately. Took down Fright Night a few nights ago. I love this movie; very fun and enjoyable. Then I took down The Lost Boys a couple of nights ago. As you know, this movie is a classic. Great film! Last night I put on Near Dark and finished it up today. I really like this movie. With this past viewing I realized that it features a young Nathan Petrelli from Heroes (Adrian Pasdar), who does a wonderful job as the lead character. But yeah, great movie there.

I watched Frailty earlier today. I had seen this movie a few times in the past, but it had been a while. I really enjoyed this movie the first time I watched it, when it was first released on dvd many years ago. While I still find it to be a decent movie, it has kinda lost it's luster. I do like Matthew McC. and Bill Paxton, and we can't forget about Powers Boothe; they all did pretty good jobs in this movie. The twist is totally obvious and predictable now, but it caught me off guard during the first viewing years ago.

I watched Stand By Me last night for the first time in years. This is a fantastic movie; another classic. I actually found it to be a much more emotional film than I remembered, maybe because I'm older. Anyways, everything about this movie is great. Rob Reiner does a terrfic job directing, all of the boys do great jobs acting, the story and writing is great (never have read King's short story "The Body" from which the film was based), the music is outstanding... everything. There are definitely some stand-out and very memorable scenes: Chopper, leeches, trying to beat the train, pie eating contest story told by Gordie (Larda**), finding the body and much more. One of my favorite scenes (hysterical, cracks me up every time) is when Vern is standing guard with the gun while everyone is sleeping, when they are camping in the woods; his reaction to the sounds of crickets, frogs and owls is great, pointing that gun at them. lol Man, I could watch this movie again right now.

It is a great story and the movie reminds me a lot of Fargo; another film I need to watch real soon.

Last night I put on The Fugitive. I got about half way through it before I fell asleep. This is another great movie that I plan on finishing up tonight. I had no idea this was directed by Andrew Davis, the same guy who did Under Siege; yet another film I need to revisit real soon.

I watched The Messengers last night. This movie was okay. The movie was pretty creepy (mainly towards the beginning and parts of the middle) and had some good scares at moments. It was a bit predictable though, the ending. This Kristen Stewart chick is something else; she's only 17 too. She has potential. It was directed by the Pang Brothers, so thats a plus. The movie did try to hard at times, which I think hurt it; much like the remake of Pulse. Could have been better, could have been worse. :neutral:

BTW- I was really surprised at how many older people were at the showing. I mean people in their late 50's, 60's, 70's and possibly 80's. It was crazy. Of course two old ladies walked out of it, possibly others. What were these people expecting?!?!?

I watched Zodiac the other night. I wished he would have come to my house and killed me while I wwas watching this POS

My only gripe with this flick was the length. Other than that, I thought it was a very engrossing, detailed flick. The murder scenes were brutal and intense and the sheer volume of investigation the film had was mind blowing. I can see how some wouldn't like it though.


Watched Smoking Aces today. A decent flick.

Dude, NO! You bash ZODIAC but you say that this wannabe actionless action flick with ungodly awful is decent!?!!? Bad KH! Bad! :crazed:



That's a great line Caesar! lol


A couple nights ago I watched A Simple Plan. I really enjoy this movie everytime I watch it. The movie is well directed (Mr. Raimi) and well acted, even though I find myself wanting to slap some of the characters at times (mainly Billy Bob). It is a great story and the movie reminds me a lot of Fargo; another film I need to watch real soon.

Last night I put on The Fugitive. I got about half way through it before I fell asleep. This is another great movie that I plan on finishing up tonight. I had no idea this was directed by Andrew Davis, the same guy who did Under Siege; yet another film I need to revisit real soon.
BTW - Last night it occured to me that the lady who plays Dept. Marshal Poole (the black lady w/ Tommy Lee Jones) is the same lady who plays Rose in Lost (L. Scott Caldwell). :crazed:


I watched A SIMPLE PLAN a few months ago for one of my classes and I loved it. It's such a great simple flick about greed, power, and just how wrong humans can be. Very good film.

And I JUST realized the LOST connection a few weeks ago when I was watching THE FUGITIVE on TNT. It took me a few seconds and then I yelped, "holy s***, that's Rose!"

I saw KNOCKED UP yesterday and laughed my a-- off. It's hard to compare it to 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN as they're two different films on every level. Both movies are comedy classics and Judd Apatow is just a terrific writer and filmmaker. He has the ability to make flicks that are just hysterical but also have a lot of heart to them. It was the same with "Freaks and Geeks" and "Undeclared" and I was really happy to see so many of his alum make cameos or have major roles in this flick.

My WM store had a display with a bunch of movies for 4.88. They included flicks like GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK, SYRIANA, KISS KISS, BANG BANG, and then random flicks like ROMEO MUST DIE and DUMB AND DUMBER; there were about 20 various titles in all. I picked up: The Fugitive, US Marshals, Dave, and T3 (2 disc widescreen) for about 18 bucks (with my discount). You can't top that. I think it's a Fathers day display, so be on the look out. :thumbsup: Also picked up the Rocky anthology at Target as they had it for $18.99 this week. Score! :crazed:

watched "Ghost Rider" today. ** out of ****- just not a good flick. Some great CGI moments, but for the most part, really boring and not really fun.

Also watched the documentary called "The Bridge" and gave it *** out of ****. It's a very up close and personal documentary about folks who jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. There is footage of about eight jumps cut with interviews with friends and family. It's odd cos you have these horrific jumps cut with gorgeous shots of San Francisco and the bridge, which is one of the most beloved landmarks in the US. Very moving and very disturbing film.

Watched a bunch of stuff lately and the trend shall continue this weekend.

Today I finished up Blow, which I started last night. I hadn't seen this movie in years; very solid movie. After Blow I switched paces and watched Anchorman which is just downright amazing as you all know. Hilarious movie. I plan on watching Wake-Up Ron Burgundy because I have never seen it and recently aquired the dvd (eBay). I just got through watching Ghost Rider which I thought was pretty bad. The first half kinda seemed promising but it went downhill. Some of the special effects were cool and Eva Mendes is hot but this is about all the movie had going for it; Sam Elliott is good people too, but he couldn't save this movie.

I've got several other movies from Netflix that I need to watch including Deja Vu and The Pursuit of Happiness, both of which I am looking forward to.

actually, it's HAPPYNESS according to the film. :p

Current flicks:
"The Prisoner, or How I planned to Kill Tony blair"- a documentary about an iraqi man and his brothers who were wrongfully accused of a plot to assassinate Blair. Very good film as it shows the relationship between the men and some US soldiers they met while imprisoned. A much needed film in these times. *** out of ****

"Breach"- TERRIFIC thriller and Chris Cooper gives a very solid performance. Phillippe is really solid here, right on par with his performance in "Flags of our Fathers." ***1/2 out of ****

"Big Nothing"- Pretty much a DTV flick starring Simon Pegg and David Schwimmer about a con gone wrong. Really horrible film that feels like a bad freshmen writing exercise. Stay faaaaar away. * out of ****

It wasn't very much actually, for $15 I got the Anchorman Unrated DVD (which I already had), an Anchorman Best Buy Exclusive Bonus DVD and the Wake-Up Ron Burgundy dvd. I ended up selling the new copy of Anchorman for $6 too (since I already had it). Sucks to hear that you didn't enjoy it, I'll be sure to post my thoughts after I watch it.

BAND OF BROTHERS, which, depending how you look at it was either a mini series or a made for TV movie cut up into parts. Either way, SUPERB film and one of the better WWII films I've ever seen. The last two episodes, especially the scene at the camp, were incredibly emotional.

"Ratatouille"- eh, gorgeous animation as usual, but the story kind of dragged and the film isn't really funny. It's more or less the pixar animated drama. I was disappointed for the most part. rating- **1/2 out of ****

I didn't really care for Flags of Our Fathers. I've never had as much interest in the Pacific theater as I did for the European one though. I've also seen the History Channel doc on the Iwo Jima flag raising so the film didn't really break new ground for me.

I thought Apocalypto was pretty good. Who'da thunk anyone would make a movie about the Maya?! I'm not sure why they included the arrival of the first Europeans, since the Mayan Empire is considered a pre-Columbian (as in Christopher Columbus) civilization. It had pretty much collapsed several hundred years before the first Spanish conquerors set foot in the Americas.

1408 - was ok, cool storyline. Samuel Jackson was under-utilized. John Cusack is a pretty good actor.

Sands of Iwo Jima - much better than Flags of our Fathers. Really cool to get a perspective from the other side. Really highlights the different outlook on warfare and dying the Japanese had. Many wasted lives due to suicide.

Bored, really? I was anything but bored while watching it. How dare you attack my taste in movies sir! lol Shooter is actually ranked 7.2 on IMDB (not that that really means anything), but it does mean a lot of other people enjoyed it as well.

Sadly, my first instincts were closer to correct. While it wasn't exactly bad, it definitely wasn't good, either. It required way too much suspension of disbelief (fine in an alien invasion movie, not so fine in a romantic comedy). Also, once the premise was set up in the first 3/4 of the movie, the last half hour or so was ridiculously predictable.

Yesterday I saw Knocked Up. Really funny and a bit touching at times, but not quite as funny as The 40-Year-Old Virgin (same writer and/or director, right?).

Yes, Judd Apatow wrote and directed both films. He's swell. I loved 40YOV, but I found that I enjoyed Knocked Up a bit more. It seemed more consistently funny to me, than 40YO. I don't know, just about anything Apatow is associated with is golden and I'll gladly watch it. :thumbsup:

Finally saw Knocked Up a few nights ago, it was funny but not in the same league as 40 Year Old...not that I expected it to, nor does it have to, but since the comparison was made I thought I would opine.

Watched The Hills Have Eyes II. It wasn't that great. I'm actually glad I skipped seeing it in the theaters. I enjoyed the first one (I thought it was a remake that was better than the original), and this was several notches down from that. Yet another horror sequel that couldn't live up to the first one.

With my grad school work done (read 7 novels and prepared syllabus/lesson plan for two classes), I was able to reignite my Bond marathon.

"Thunderball"- Better than I expected and i had worries about the underwater fight, but it was actually pretty cool to watch. *** out of ****

"You only live Twice"- this is to me another essential Bond film with great action, great plot, a great villian and overall an awesome film. Plus, I couldn't help but make Scorpio references under my breath during a few shots. ***1/2 out of ****

"On Her Majesty's Secret Service"- Lazenby does a good Bond, but this film felt really weighed down and confusing at times. It felt like it took too long for things to get going and I found myself kinda bored in the beginning. Plus, how they track down Blofeld is just plain silly. The ending did knock me on my *** though, but it raises a huge question: why didn't Bond make sure Blofeld was dead or arrested?!!??! Dummy. **1/2 out of ****

and finally:
"Diamonds are Forever"- Connery's return is good, but the film is iffy and too silly and odd, even for a Bond flick. He just looks kinda old for the part and he seems like he's going through the motions for his massive paycheck. The pair of henchman were really goofy and there ending battle was anticlimatic as Blofeld got what he deserved, but it felt like it wasn't personal enough for Bond. **1/2 out of ****

About to enter the Roger Moore years here soon after I finish reading HP7. Thirteen more to go total! Cheers! :thumbsup:

Went and saw Michael Moore's Sicko tonight.
Like his other documentaries, it was well-done, but fairly one sided (but not quite as one-sided as his past docs, IMO). I won't go into too much detail as not to tread into Rancor Pit territory, but it made me angry at times.

In 1868, a former Confederate Colonel (Liam Neeson) and his hired posse hunt a former Union Army Captain (Pierce Brosnan) through mountains and into the desert after what transpired at Seraphim Falls under the Captain's command during the Civil War. Though a bit surreal near the end, the movie is still worth a look for fans of the western genre.

Paroled outlaw Lee Van Cleef mentors a young gunfighter in his quest for revenge against the gang who murdered his family in Death Rides a Horse. This is the first film to use the popular "seeing red" special effect whenever the hero recognizes one the villains and flashbacks on the past. Tarantino used the effect again in Kill Bill; as well as recycling composer Ennio Morricone's operatic orchestral theme for the House of Blue Leaves showdown in Volume 1.

I actually ended up getting the 300 Best Buy exclusive. Turns out that the Target exclusive was just a 2 disc set that included the downloadable movie, no 3rd disc at all and their bonus features were referring to the ones on the 2nd disc (very shoddy and confusing advertising [in the ad/circular] on Target's part there). That pretty much sealed the deal on my driving to Best Buy and getting their exclusive edition (which I wanted more than the others anyways). I haven't cracked it open yet, but the helmet looks really sweet and it is bigger and heavier than I was anticipating. :thumbsup: The Best Buy exclusive is apparently selling out fast at some locations so if you all want it, get there asap. My Best Buy only had about 5 left (after I got my 2 [one for my brother]) and I went an hour or so after they opened. Anyways, I would love to watch the movie now but I gotta head to work... :(

BTW- I also picked up a couple of SuperBad Best Buy bonus discs that include some special features and a free movie ticket to see the movie, rang up at $11.99 but the cashier adjusted it to $.01. WooHoo. :thumbsup:

I saw The Simpsons Movie today. Very good. They must've saved all the funny from the last 5-10 years for the movie.

I also had the *ahem* pleasure of seeing Carlos Mencia live. I would say he's funnier on tv, but that would imply that he's actually funny on tv...which he's not. The opening acts were pretty good though.
