I am LOVING the direction of season 3 right now! It's such an epic story arc and the episodes with 21 and 24 are downright hysterical.

Did anyone see the episode a few weeks back with 'Ventron'? It was the episode when the Monarch took the Cocoon to attack JJ at Spider Skull Island...

Yeah I saw that. I catch my fix of Venture Bros. on the Adult Swim site, because I turned off my cable tv. Though the episodes are not current, so I'm a little late on each installment. The most recent one was "The family that slays together"

There is a separate Venture Bros. thread btw. http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=38413&highlight=venture+bros

Got my netflix back, so here we go!

"Saw IV"- Easily one of the strongest of the series with a tight, fast paced plot and a great twist and toying with time and the events of the previous films. I read that the series ends with Saw VI next year and it's all mapped out. I'm excited to see how it all ends. *** out of ****

"I'm Not There"- for Bob Dylan fans and movie buffs only i'd say as it's a mess of a film, but it's supposed to be. All of the performances are solid and Cate Blanchett is unrecognizable as bob dylan in the peak of his 60's fame. It could have been half an hour shorter though. For the most part, very interesting and engaging film. *** out of ****

About Czec pilots who after their country was invaded by Nazis, fought for the RAF. Some really nice flight scenes with Spitfires. Goes to show that they can still make good aviation war movies if they can wrangle up a few WWII planes. Subtitles.

I didn't know Heroes was on Blu-ray. I have it on HD-DVD, but only watched an episode or two. Quality was/is real good, and I think there are some HD exclusive features; wonder if they were ported to the Blu-ray version?!?! That said, I did give up on season 2 not even half way through. It was terrible. Going to skip the 3rd season for obvious reasons.

The blu-ray's came out last week. I bought Season 2 at Best Buy and have Season 1 on the way from Amazon.

As for special features, they likely ported it all over, but the new sets come with "blu-ray live" features.

Glad you enjoyed it, UK! I just thought it could have been a bit more flushed out.

more reviews:

"The Signal"- very solid film about an odd signal that causes people to become overly paranoid, brutal, and insane. It's an indie horror flick, but it has that same documentary style ala "28 Days Later" that is fun to see. The second act is kinda "Huh?" as it changes the tone and loses momentum, but overall, I really liked it. Rating- *** out of ****

"In Bruges"- what a surprise this flick was! Brenden Gleeson and Colin Farrell have a great chemistry together playing hitmen sent to hide out in Bruges by their boss played by Ralph Fiennes after a hit goes awry. It's a really funny flick, sporting a bit of action, and an unexpected dose of drama regarding choices, second chances, and morals. I was really caught off guard about what a solid movie it is! Rating- **** out of **** :thumbsup:

Because there was nothing else on last night: Coming to America on HBO. I had completely forgot Samuel L.Jackson was in it. He was the unsuccessful robber who had his shotgun taken away by Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall in the fast food joint in which they work. He shoulda used his light saber.

I watched The Proposition last night, w/ Guy Pearce and Ray Winstone. It was outstanding. Its about a man (Pearce) who is forced to track down and kill one of his brothers (in order to spare the life of his other brother) who was responsible for the death of a family in a small town in the Australian western outback. The guy who directed it (John Hillcoat) is also at the helm of The Road which is due out in November. And Nick Cave (of the Bad Seeds) wrote the screenplay and did the music. Judging from Hillcoat's work on The Proposition, The Road could be outstanding. I'm very much looking forward to it as the book was phenomenal. But yeah, I thought The Proposition was excellent and I can highly recommend it. :thumbsup:

Last night's Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth.

Another fan of Sci Fi's wednesday night line up!!!! I DVR it each week as I LOVE Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth. I know DT rarely has real proof, but I just enjoy the travel and cultural aspect of it. GH is a huge favorite of mine as i've had experiences with the paranormal and I love the stuff they catch.

The voice that they caught a few weeks back in Buffalo with the "leave me alone" was so damn creepy. Great stuff! :thumbsup:

I tend to watch Ghost Hunters, Destination Truth, and Paranormal State on occasion.

GH and PS are entertaining, but they're also very frustrating to watch. The cameras always seem to miss the best stuff on GH ("coincidence," I'm sure).
And on DT, they travel half way around the world to investigate for one night.
The more I watch PS the worse it gets. The whole thing feels like the drama is all fabricated.

Yeah, if I remember correctly I did. I dno't remember much of it though. I'd just keep my eyes on A&E as they rerun something like four episodes a night. Or try to watch it online?

I will say that out of all of them, I found GH to be the most credible. The camera can only move so fast, but they sometimes get really good stuff on their cameras and audio equipment. Some of their EVP's are downright disturbing.

DT- I agree; you'd think they would try to investigate for a few nights or so. I never understood that either.

PS- It definitely has its ups and downs. Some aspects of it I like, others get on my nerves. I think the whole fabrication drama comes from Ryan as he seems to get somewhat melodramatic at times. I like the guy and what he does, but sometimes I just want him to shut up and just shoot evidence already.

It depends; sometimes I can hear what I think are thumps and whatnot. The Iron Museum episode a few weeks back had audible noises that I could hear while watching it. But I still see what you're saying. :thumbsup:

The cameramen seem to be looking to film reactions rather than action.
And I agree, they do get some great stuff everything but film.

I watched this flick MONTHS ago and I really enjoyed it; it kind of caught me off guard with the solid performances from Slater and Cuthbert. I enjoyed some of the ideas it tackled and I thought overall it was a good film, although you could tell it was an indie flick. I still recommend it though.

after watching a disappointing Cubs game, I watched tonights GHOST HUNTERS. Another solid episode with some good evidence and whatnot. The EVP sounded pretty odd, but not nearly as spooky as the EVP's over the last few weeks, from last week's "Go home!" to the one a few weeks ago with the Saw-esque voice, "Leave me alone." Those gave me chills. :thumbsup:

Last night's Ghost Hunters was awesome. It was really creepy when Jason had to look for his flip flop and it was in a room that no one had been in. I was disappointed that they didn't try to light a candle in that one room where the lady always blows them out...

And even though Destination Truth is usually a letdown (evidence wise), I was thoroughly creeped out by the trip to the woods near Mt. Fuji. That was pretty intense, although I wished they would have used the thermal camera a lot more.

That flip flop thing was creepy, but it also seemed very playful. I think they didn't light the candle as they were afraid of maybe some sort of fire, as the locations had several fires in the past.

And DT was pretty intense, i definitely agree. That forest was pretty insane, just with the atmosphere, the history, and the cut up licenses, credit cards and ID's the group found. That was pretty disturbing stuff.

And I love how the team is starting to give Ryder guff for complaining all the time. FINALLY. :thumbsup:

I've been plowing through DVD's that were collecting dust over the last year or so.

Watched:

- It's Always Sunny In Philadephia season 1-2- Very very funny show. I have season 3 on my Christmas list.

- Carnivale seasons 1-2- Pretty solid show, but I can see why it was canned cos it took FOREVER to get going. Good lawd! I enjoyed it though. Shame we won't know how things would've ended.

- Kids in the Hall season 5- Pretty solid season, FAR better than season 4. It had some great moments with the chicken lady, Armada and the classic sketch, "God is Dead." Plus, Bellinni FINALLY spoke.....at the end of the series finale.

Right now i'm watching the complete series of EXTRAS, which is HYSTERICAL. I was never that big a fan of the UK Office, but I love EXTRAS, once I got past how damn awkward I felt while watching it.

What I have left:
Black Sheep
Blade Runner (directors cut)
Dexter s. 2
Night and Day Watch
Six Feet Under seasons 1-5

and my buddy sent me the last three volumes of BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES to add to my volume 1. I'm really excited to watch them when I have time, which won't probably be till late 08, but still! :thumbsup:

lol many thanks for the compliment!! And the finale is pretty solid!! I got a bit nostaligic and sad when they finally take off their wigs and say their goodbyes to the audience. I've seen the Kids many times live, most recently this past April and I was able to meet them back on 2000. They are the nicest group of guys i've met (minus Kevin, who was sick and left after the show). Very cool fellas and more than willing to talk to you for hours and sign anything........despite being pretty drunk. hehehehhee

The wife and I just started rewatching "Firefly" and Season 1 of "30 Rock".

We also caught the premier of "Ghost Adventures" on the Travel Channel. This was a pretty interesting show. They visited Bobby Mackey's Music World down in Kentucky, which is kind of a coincidence because we just watched the episode of "A Haunting" that covered this location within that last week or two.

And of course, The Clone Wars which I am really looking forward to on DVD. I think it will be really cool to be able to watch multiple episodes in a row without commercials.

Thanks for the trailer link; i remember that two hour episode on "A Haunting" and was uber creeped out. I don't remember anything about seances though; I just remember that it was a funeral home and had a possible demon and the ordeal ended with an exorcism. I do recall the son getting cancer and becoming disturbed, but not to the extent that was shown in the trailer.

I do wish they would have newer episodes of "A Haunting" too.

My DVR didn't record that episode. I only got the premiere thing where they traveled to some old west towns. I checked the clip on their site and it looked crazy. I'm gonna DVR that episode and the new one tomorrow night.

And that's funny how they're at the place that was shown on "A Haunting." Small world, ghostly speaking! :thumbsup:

The premiere episode was better than the 2 hour 'movie/documentary' from 2006.

The TAPS guys visited the places in Nevada that the GA guys went to in the movie/documentary.

I watched more of GHOST ADVENTURES and I just can't get into it. The entire team gets on my nerves, especially the main host guy. There seems to be too much fluff, like that shot of the group walking on the train tracks by Mackey's, looking like they're buff and about to kick arse. The host is also ridiculous as he's yelling at his team not to run and when he gets attacked, he starts freaking out and running. Plus, a lot of their evidence is garbled and muffled.

There is a new hour episode of PARANORMAL STATE on tonight though, so i'm DVRing that. :thumbsup:

Pretty decent PARANORMAL STATE this week. The exorcism is pretty creepy and I'm still shocked it went for 9 hours.

I'm watching last night's GHOST HUNTERS right now. They're having a HUUUUUUUUUUGE GH marathon tomorrow leading up to the Live special. I'm DVRing nearly all of it, aside from a few I know i've seen. This includes the INSANE Dayton WPAFB episode, which I love as when i'm not teaching, I live about 25 minutes from WP and have been there on a few occasions.

This week, i've watched some flicks.

I had put my Bond marathon on hold and i figured with the new flick due out in a few weeks, I should get on it.

So, I watched "Tomorrow Never Dies" and for the most part, I enjoyed it. I wasn't sure about the villian at first, but I finally warmed up to him eventually. The action scenes were solid and while I liked them, it was pretty standard Bond fare. You can also tell that the series was well on its way to using way too many gadgets, but overall, I really liked it. *** out of ****

"Batman: Gotham Knight"- This was pretty awful. THe stories were short and boring, the animation wasn't too impressive, and I just found the whole thing tedious. * out of ****

I can't speak for AtJ and 2 1/2 Men, but Knight Rider is a giant car commercial for Ford and if they keep supplying cars and paying their ad bills, the show will stay on the air.

I've never seen Pushing Daisies (too many shows to watch as it is), but I've heard good things. I will probably check it out on DVD sometime soon. I felt the same way when Fox (they are the WORST when it comes to killing shows) killed Arrested Development.

Just watched Iron Man via netflix. Wife said not another comic movie when it started, than at the end, said only The Dark Knight is a better comic movie. Enjoyed it, but glad I didn't pay anything to see anything this year in the theaters.

- I watched a little bit of the Ghost Hunters Halloween special and decided that I'd rather watch the highlights show on the 5th.

- Ghost Adventures. Kinda cool, but the previews for this week's (the 7th) episode look good.

- An American Haunting. YAWN.

- Rewatched all of the Clone Wars episodes with my brother in law on Saturday (no cable).

- Some episodes of Curious George with my wife and our 3 1/2 year old nephew. He spent the night with us on Halloween.

- Part of the Oregon/Cal game. That was a dissapointment. But hey, now Michigan has been mathematically eliminated from post season bowl eligibility, so that's a plus.

Why if when I get the time, and with the proper pictures found on the internet, the can of WD40 I have will solve the issue?

Star Wars revisited. The fan edit by Adywan.
It was - interesting. a little too blunt in the cutting at times but his additional CGI work was impressive and his compositing was ace. the myriad tiny corrections in continuity and the clarity of this version are awesome. and the only drawback for me is how far into the background he's pushed the musical score. he pretty much nailed the destruction of Alderaan as I see it in the bonus cut and extended scenes.

A good watch. not perfect but then I guess it's really Adywan's perfect. I'm not sure I'm ready for jabba the Hutt in 3D though.

Finally finished up my Bond marathon just in time for QUANTUM OF SOLACE.

"The World is Not Enough"- Pretty decent Bond film, although a bit too by the numbers. The action sequences also drag out way too long and the plot is kinda jumbled. Also, Denise Richards is great to look at, but such a poor actress. This is pretty much hte beginning of the end for Brosan's Bond era- ** out of ****

"Die Another Die"- and here is the end of the end for Brosan's Bond era. hehehehe shoddy CGI on an invisible car (so awful) and a really bad plot about identity changing and yet more lasers. Halle Berry is also really bad in the flick. So so bad; like "Moonraker" bad!- * out of ****

The only concrete news I've read of a 1960s Batman DVD is the speculation and supposedly inside word that Fox is using it as a bargaining chip in their lawsuit with WB over Warner, hoping to finally get Warner to sign off on the damn thing. (I wouldn't be surprised if it's totally ready to go, just waiting for the lawsuit to wrap up, and will hit streets in record time. I'm sure Fox would love it to coincide with the Dark Knight DVD.)

There was also mention of Adam West recording commentary, but then he came back and said it was for a documentary he was doing on his own. Course, that could be a red herring to cover an accidental leak.

Remind me to send ABC a large cardboard box full of my excrement after thanksgiving dinner. k thanks. :upset:

according to the creator, Bryan Fuller, he has said something about a comic series run after episode 13's cliffhanger:


According to Fuller, the facts are these: "It's very likely that Pushing Daisies will end after episode 13, which as you know, is a cliffhanger. But we are talking to DC Comics about doing comic books that will wrap up our storylines, and I already have a pitch for a movie ready to go.

"To be honest, I'm really not feeling very boo hoo about it. I am so proud of the show. We put together 22 really good episodes, and there is a lot to be proud of. I'm sure I'll be working with a lot of these people again, and I would love to do so."

I read this, and it's amazing. Amazingly stupid. There is officially nothing on TV anymore. I wish I could cancel the networks and pay less for just basic cable. Because Family Guy and American Dad are on Cartoon Network a couple of weeks later, anyway.

They'd rather have crap that costs nothing to make than good television that they actually have to pay for. I never told anyone to watch this show who didn't end up loving it. Trouble is, no one knew it existed because they did such a ****ty job of promoting it.

And they wonder why TV viewership is down. It has very little to do with the internet. It's because they don't have enough decent shows. I don't mean to sound like some old fart pining for the good old days, but if they had more shows of the quality level of, say, Seinfeld or I Love Lucy or even just Third Rock from the Sun or Quantum Leap, their numbers wouldn't be in the crapper.

It's sad to watch the television stations, comic publishers, etc, blaming their declining audience on new media rather than just admitting they suck at telling stories that interest people.

Pan's labyrinth is un subtitled but from the sections i've watched the story translates even without dialogue. not to mention that it looks gorgeous. I guess it's a testament to the old adage 'show, don't tell' and Guillermo Del Toro's skill as a director that it's such an easy movie to understand.

so last night i saw one of the worst movies ever made and as such has completely steered me away from ever reading the books associated with the movie. i was extremely glad that the tickets were free, might have had to track down the writer and directer and as Hank Hill would say "Kick their ***"

the movie was Twlight, the recent Stephanie Meyer blockbuster of teenager love triangle vampire spin (this was like the original Kristy Swanson Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Harry Potter meets the Star Wars Prequels.) horrible writing, acting and dialogue. 2 hours of agony with a side of "why am I here."

i went for my wife because she has gone to various movies with me that she had no interest in so i'm sure that she has said the same things about my movies that i've posted about this one, but i can honestly say that i think when the sequels come out i might have to pack either my DS or PSP.

I watched Wall-E and Kung Fu Panda over the Thanksgiving holiday and they were both great movies. I watched each one multiple times and, while it took me a couple of viewings to really warm up to it, I think I liked Kung Fu Panda a little bit better.

I loved the opening segment of Wall-E but didn't feel that the human storyline was developed as well as it should be. I think it was the cutting between realistic human characters and animated human characters that made that aspect of the movie feel rushed to me.

I watched Kung Fu Panda again and now I'm completely torn between hating the Pantomime element and loving the overall style and design and hating every voice aside from jack Black and dustin hoffman and the chinese dude who played the old turtle.

the whole noodle shop thing and crane for a father mmmm just didn't buy it. cruddy pantomime. the kung fu was great though fantastic action sequences with enough tension and humour to captivate. Whin tigress goes up against the erm, bad cat dude, and the whole sequence cranks up a notch with all the rope stuff. awesome! the bad cat dude totally got his tail handed to him several times. he just got lucky with that last swing on the rope. Po is the man. they should just redo his dad and make him a Panda. with a really deep voice like james earl jones and like do a special added bonus where the old turtle dude gives advice and philosophical training vibes. like a mystic easter egg or something.

You hated all the voices aside from Black and Hoffman? Even Ian McShane as Tai Lung (the bad guy)? I do agree, though, that Mantis should've been Vince Offer instead of Seth "Very Little Talent" Rogen. He could've beaten up on Tai Lung and said, "Are you going to be done getting your butt kicked soon? 'Cause we can't do this all day. You with me, Viper?"

I have a long term intense dislike of Ian McShane and his curly hair. it goes back decades. the sound of his voice is like that sound when someone in class drags their cheapo plasic with tubular steel legs and worn through little plastic leg tube caps chair across the floor and you get that juddering jarring noise.

It's a beautiful movie to watch no doubts about that. All I'm saying is that certain voice actors didn't pull their weight when other voice actors were givin their all. it wasn't a team effort. some players dropped the ball. y'know? but man it made me want to take up karate and kick some rhino butt.

Madagascar 2. it looks the same. good marks there. the voices are a little different here and there but ok. there's some good gags but mostly this movie is lame. the story is just boring, the plot points you can see coming from a mile off and the monkeys are vastly under used. King julian is even more irritating than last time. And the old lady was a huge mistake, they shoulda left her in NYC! but bad points aside it's watchable. if you want to turn your brain off for a couple of hours. vegetate on the couch. fall asleep to.

I watched the Holiday Special for the second time the other day (hence the Gormaanda avatar). Sweet Moses, it felt like it lasted about three months. The Boba Fett cartoon is actually pretty great, though. The whole thing is just so damn surreal, from the thickly mustached Imperial trooper sitting stoned and watchig Jefferson Starship to the crazy singing of the glazed-over Leia. There was no sense of flow at all - "let's stop for five minutes straight and watch this circus; sounds great!" If they cut much of it (about by half), rewrote some of the dialogue, and focused only on the Wookiees, it wouldn't be so bad, I think. And what was up with the stormtroopers holding the guns that way?

Ah, well, I could go on but I won't. :D

Bryan Singer did a great job of capturing the plot to kill Hitler. I feel some comfort now knowing that he did such a great job on this film, while his work for a sequel to Superman Returns is still up in the air.
Cruise did an awesome job, as did the supporting cast (among those was Tom Wilkinson, who is one of the most underrated actors IMO).

Glad you enjoyed it J&H. Maybe i'll netflix it to see Wilkinson and Eddie Izzard.

You are right, Cruise does not have an accent. That did not bother me though, because I would rather just hear his natural voice than have to listen to him attempt an accent and sound horrible. :)

Agreed. I experienced the drama of the Apollo 13 first-hand in my early teens yet; when I saw Opie's film Apollo 13 I was still caught up in the suspense of the situation even though I knew the outcome.

I am probably the farthest thing from a Tom Cruise fan that you'll ever find, but I'm curious to see this film (probably via Netflix, thank you) for historical accuracy.

Hollywood films are never "Historically accurate" though the general public views them as such, take JFK for example.

This is why I seldom watch these type of movies, I would rather see a more accurate documentary, or better yet read about it.

I will pass on this film, besides, I've never been a big fan of Cruise.

They actually shot many of the scenes with a German accent for all of the actors but they didn't want the actors accents to take away from the story itself. They also figured that since it wasn't a docu-drama (like Tora! Tora! Tora!) that it wasn't that big of a deal. :thumbsup:

The accent thing only bugged me for a few minutes, but I got over it quickly. Besides, I'd rather hear natural American and British accents over a forced Hogan's Heroes-type German accent any day.

I'm not harping on you at all but I just re-read this part of your post and remembered an article I read. Do you like Schindler's List? Do you like The Pianist? Do you like Sophies Choice"? All of those were released in December but, like Valkeyrie, it was mostly awards driven. I guess the holiday season Christmas is just a good time to come out with them. :thumbsup:

I want to go see Valkyrie. Lots of authentic German planes and hardware I hear.
I really don't care if Tom is in it, I rather like most of his movies.

I had already heard that the film will likely be released in Germany with German accents dubbed in, because the Germans like their films that way. Perhaps with English subtitles?
That would be the way to buy it for more authenticity.
Meanwhile, I will definitely go see it soon.

Not enough historical WWII flicks are made.
I had heard rumors of the "Flying Tigers' film being considered, and Tom a likely actor for it.
He's got plenty of money to finance an authentic film. More power to him for that.
Just keep the Cyclos out of it and we'll be ok.

I don't see what the problem is with the lack of German accents. Because, in reality, they would be speaking German to each other which, to them, would just sound like normal talking. In other words, unless you do German with English subtitles (which usually equals box office death), then having them speak in plain English is the most historically accurate.

The invasion. Why do people keep giving Nicole Kidman work? She's chuffing awful! I can't think of a single movie where she proves she can act. all she can do is frown, dribble snot while crying and give a half vacant smile. that's it, her entire repertoire of emoting. It really beggars belief. A truly truly awful movie too.

I watched that vampire movie for teen girls. forget the name of it. all looked greeny washed out. had as much charisma as a dead fish. i say i watched it, i fast forwarded through until there were bits that were slightly more interesting than the faux navel gazing bits. TWILIGHT! yeah that's the movie. ********** terrible! I can only hope it inspired all the drippy adolescants who buy into such blatently marketed schmaltz driven nonsense to go jump off a bridge. drivel pish and twaddle is all this movie is.

In contrast, i watched The Dreamers and ****** loved it. aside from the nudity which was quite nice, this is a movie with a soft bite. lulling you into a world of strange unquiet. disturbing yet captivating. It needed to be longer and entwine itself around the period it was set in though. the period set pieces seemed tagged on and superfluous to the real story of a ménage à trois that doesn't work. Bernardo Bertolucci directs it as though he has three characters in search of a narrative who begin to find one but ultimately the dénouement is a brief affair and cuts short the movie when it just gets going. Still, it's interesting to note that they were going to cast Leonardo di Caprio in the movie and couldn't get him so cast look-a-like michael pitt instead. who in my eyes gives a much more interesting performance than Leo could have. far subtler and much more nuanced. the innocent who has his eyes opened to the world.

In my film history class, which started tonight, we will be watching a movie every class, which meets twice a week. As we're covering a different topic every week, the professor wants to show us a "great" movie and then a more representative one of the overall theme (Citizen Kane is on Thursday, guess which heading that falls under). Anyway, today we watched Only Angels Have Wings, a 1989 Howard Hawks movie with Cary Grant and Jean Arthur. It was nothing really amazing but pretty good. Some of it was really dated (a bird flies through a windshield and knocks a guy in the head) but it had a great deal of 30s charm. It was certainly better than that Casablanca crap. :p

After surviving a car wreck that claimed the life of his brother, a young man finds himself stuck in a small, rural village in 1974's The Cars That Ate Paris. In this strange Australian film - part satire, part horror - the man is given a job and is "adopted" by the mayor, but soon discovers that the townspeople intentionally cause car accidents and lobotomize any survivors in order to maintain the local economy, which is built on bartering scavenged parts and personal belongings of the crash victims. To top it all, the town's shiftless young people build outlandish cars which they use to keep new "arrivals" in, outsiders out, and otherwise terrorize the town when they feel like it. Features a young Bruce Spence (The Road Warrior, Matrix Revolutions, Return of the King, Revenge of the Sith) as the village idiot.

Singing cowboy Buck Lawson wins the girl and foils villainous Bat Haynes' scheme to start a range war and frame him for the murder of a rival ranch owner in 1938's musical western The Terror of Tiny Town. The entire cast of the film is comprised of midgets (little people in today's parlance) riding around on... well, midget horses. Most of the sets and props are normal size, however, which offers a few laughs in addition to the decidedly politically incorrect midget humor.

A man (Peter Graves) and his teenage son and daughter are shielded by the cave they were exploring during a strange solar disturbance that causes nearly everyone else to die and be reduced to piles of dust in 1974’s made-for-TV movie Where Have All the People Gone? On the way home, the family meets other survivors, both friendly and not, and must escape packs of dogs that run wild in the deserted towns they pass through. This movie reminded me of 1984’s Night of the Comet - a better film with a similar premise - a passing comet reduces everyone who’s not sheltered to piles of dust, while others are mutated. Kathleen Quinlan (Twilight Zone: The Movie, Apollo 13, The Hills Have Eyes [2006]) plays Graves’ teenage daughter.

Based on a story by Rod Serling, the two men race against time to find a cure before the Great Chicago Fire destroys the city, erasing all records of the cure.

He’s finally stopped by a buxom female warrior bent on avenging the man’s destruction of her settlement. Based on a graphic novel by Kevin "TMNT" Eastman and Simon Bisley, the film features the voice talents of Michael Ironside, Billy Idol, and B-movie queen and former Penthouse Pet Julie Strain.

Double Feature!

A colonel (Christopher Lee) with the British government enlists the aid of a renowned pathologist (Peter Cushing) when a series of deaths leads to a startling discovery at an isolated orphanage in the engaging 1973 horror mystery Nothing But the Night. During their investigation, Lee and Cushing soon learn that the aging, wealthy orphanage trustees are transferring their consciousness and memories to the young orphans and then destroying their old bodies in staged accidents and apparent suicides. Also features a young Michael Gambon (Professor Dumbledore) as a police inspector.

The 101st Airborne "Screaming Eagles" hold Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge in 1949’s Battleground. Decent war movie but a bit tame by today’s standards. Like many Hollywood war movies of its time, Battleground is populated with stereotypical characters cracking wise in typical soldier banter. Van Johnson, John Hodiak, and Ricardo Montalban star.

I watched season 1 of "Flight of the Conchords". It's a rather funny show actually. I guess it's on HBO if you wanna catch it.

I watched The Strangers last night. It was quite good and creepy.Did they make another one? Because the one I saw (from last year) was boring and beyond terrible.

I've been watching Smallville all day....started with season one a couple days ago, on season two now.

Stop after season 3.

And I agree with Rocketboy about the Strangers. I watched it with alot of anticipation because it looked good from the previews, but in the end I was let down.

What you call "boring," I refer to as "suspenseful." ;)

In Tuesday in my film history class we watched some WWII-era propaganda films, including Frank Capra's Why We Fight: War Comes to America and John Ford's Battle of Midway. Both had some super-cheesy moments and more than a few overly patriotic ones. It was interesting to see them, though.

Brilliant show.I was really surprised at it. Usually when someone says that I HAVE to see something because it's so funny it's usually NOT funny at all but this show delivered. The songs are the best part of it all.

Double Feature!

A art student becomes obsessed with capturing the moment of death until it threatens to consume her sanity in 2004’s Ab-normal Beauty. Haunted by memories of a childhood molestation, the young woman teeters on the brink of madness until a close friend pulls her back from the edge. Her life starts to improve until she begins receiving photos and homemade snuff films from someone who shares her dark desires.

Upon escaping from a mental institution, a woman is picked up by a scientist whose family is perfecting their teleportation device in 1965’s The Curse of the Fly. After spending a week together, the two are married and move into the family mansion. But soon the young missus learns that her new beau’s last wife is still in residence, locked away in a cell along with two other unfortunate lab assistants, all horribly disfigured in a teleportation experiment.

I watched the last half of Funny Games last night on Cinemax.

Yikes.

Maybe I just didn't get it or something but I prefer my movies to end with the victims fighting back and triumphing over the baddies.

I'm really looking forward to Taken, Last House on the Left, and While She Was Out for that reason.

Today in class we watched The Best Years of Our Lives. I thought it had great potential for a while, but became kind of cliche toward the end (as per the production code, I assume). It still had quite a bit of good stuff in there, though.

When an Egyptologist falls into a coma after a mysterious attack, his daughter (Amy Locane) seeks help from her boyfriend and her father’s colleague (Louis Gossett, Jr.) in the awful 1997 monster movie Bram Stoker’s Legend of the Mummy. Probably made in an attempt to cash in on the big-budget Universal mummy movie in production at the time (1999’s The Mummy), this film tells the tale of an Egyptian queen who had herself mummified with the intention of being returned to life. And so she does - possessing the daughter of the man who discovered her tomb. Also stars Richard Karn (Al from TV’s Home Improvement) as the boyfriend’s museum curator buddy.

Brilliant show.

FOTC is pretty hit and miss, but luckily, it's far more hit than miss. Season 1 was great and season 2 has been solid thus far. The first episode of season 2 was alright, but I LOVED the second episode.

They're touring in the spring; i'm definitely trying for a ticket to the Detroit show on monday. :thumbsup:

Pursued relentlessly by a gang of men, two likable trappers (Clint Walker & Roger Moore) who discovered gold are driven across unforgiving territory in the enjoyable 1961 western Gold of the Seven Saints. Using their wits to survive, the two men join forces with a gun-slinging doctor and take refuge with a former Mexican bandit-turned-rancher. The alliances they forge come with a price, though, as they learn even their new-found friends want a share of the gold too.

Another solid viewing of The King of Kong. I swear, this along with a few other movies I could watch once a week and never get sick of.

I liked Death Proof better than Planet Terror myself.

A businessman (Gene Wilder) beds a girl (Jill Clayburgh) and finds himself embroiled in a murder mystery aboard a train in the enjoyable 1976 action adventure comedy Silver Streak. A running gag in the film finds Wilder constantly getting kicked, knocked, or thrown off the train, but he always manages to find a way back on board. In one escapade, Wilder is knocked off the top of the train, makes his way to a nearby town and winds up stealing a cop car with a handcuffed thief in the back seat (Richard Pryor). The film gets even better with the introduction of Pryor, whose on-screen chemistry with Wilder makes the second half of the movie even better than the first. Also features a whole slew supporting actors from the period: Ned Beatty, Scatman Crothers, Fred Wilard, Ray Walston, and even that Bond villain "Jaws" - the guy with the metal teeth.

Wanted sucked balls and Angelina Jolie looked down right disgusting. I've NEVER thought she was anything special anyways but this just proved it.

I've been watching Season 3 of Rob & Big (still going on it. I'm on like disc 2). This season is by FAR the best season yet. It just sucks that the show's done now. :cry:

I was able to land a third row ticket for the Detroit show. I also got two tickets to the chicago show for my bro cos he had a meeting and couldn't get online.

I'm really excited about this show (i'm listening to Inner City Pressure right now). :thumbsup:
