    I watched the 2009 Star Trek for the first time last night. I was planning to see it in the theaters but got ticked when I heard all the stuff about alternate reality. I should have gone. I really enjoyed it entirely. My wife even stayed up to watch it. The alternative reality situation makes since now. Time travel is defenately the way to re-tool a series.

    Ah-em Spiderman, I'm looking at you.
    Nowhere in your incoherent ramblings did you come anywhere close to the answer. Thanks to you, everyone in this room is now stupider having heard you. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul. -Billy Madison-

    An underrated 80s movie. And don't forget the underrated Jeanette Goldstein, Vasquez from Aliens, as one of the vampires.

    Two new reviews!

    "Up in the Air"- Another great 2009 flick; George Clooney is great as a man who fires people for a living, which creates a lonely, detatched existence from those around him. The supporting cast is great with Vera Farmiga as a fellow business woman, but it's Anna Kendrick as his new co-worker that steals every scene she's in. It's a funny flick that also has great elements of drama about the importance of change, strength, and hope. Rating- ***1/2 out of ****

    "The Road"- Near perfect adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's apocalyptic father/son tale. Viggo Mortensen does a great job as the father, protecting his son on their long journey across a desolate country in search of hope, carrying "the fire." Kodi Smit-McPhee is a solid newcomer as the son, attempting to understand how the world is around him. The cinematography is gorgeous and the landscape is wonderfully created (for, ya know, the apocalypse). My only gripe comes from the use of flashbacks dealing with the man's wife, played very well by Charlize Theron. I just felt they weren't too necessary after a certain point and could've been trimmed a little. Nick Cave & Warren Ellis also provide a terrific score, matching the brilliance of their score for "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford." It's a masterful piece of film that's very relevant, especially today. Rating- ***1/2 out of ****

    "Woke up at 9.55am. Soon as I woke up, I looked at Suzanne and she looked at me. I said, 'Did I tell you about the immune system?' Suzanne starting laughing, I said, 'it's amazing.' She said, 'Not now.'"

    With a serial killer terrorizing the city, local news anchor Jane Harris (Lauren Tewes) begins following clues that lead her to her own back door -- pointing to one of her neighbors as the culprit. Now, she must gather the evidence to support her theory before the killer can strike again in this film from the producers of Friday the 13th and co-starring Jennifer Jason Leigh (in one of her first roles) as Jane's disabled sister, in the really bad 1981 "Eyes of a Stranger".
    May the force be with you.

    When I saw that Paxton, Henriksen, and Goldstein were in it I thought maybe James Cameron directed. All three are Cameron regulars, although I think Paxton holds the crown for most appearances, going all the way back to the first Terminator. Goldstein appeared in T2.

    Ignoring warnings, the financier of an archaeological dig takes his prize mummy and the treasure on the road to make a quick buck until the corpse returns to life to take revenge on those who opened his crypt in the okay 1964 Hammer horror film The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb.

    Socialist newsman John Reed (Warren Beatty) has a tumultuous affair with married writer Louise Bryant (Diane Keaton) and the two later become eye witnesses to the 1917 Russian Revolution and its aftermath in the okay 1981 epic Reds. Features Jack Nicholson as playwright Eugene O’Neill.

    French Intelligence Officer Henry Defonse (Indiana Jones) has a tumultuous affair with pretty single Russian girl Rosie and the two later become eyewitnesses to the 1917 Russian Revolution and its aftermath in the awesome 1990's Adventures of Young Indiana Jones.

    Actually, that was in Volume 2, and I'm watching Volume 3 as Indy returns to the United States and confronts racial prejudice while he indulges in his exploration of jazz music while at the University of Chicago.

    Elliott Ness of the Untouchables is his college roommate, and Ernest Hemmingway is a Chicago Tribune reporter that Indy had befriended during the War. Together they try and solve the historic murder of Indy's boss at the restaurant he works as a waiter, only to discover their prime suspect for the killer is Al Capone! The gang wars erupt in Chicago while Louis Armstrong plays jazz like noneother, and then delves into the blues, as prohibition takes its foothold in United States History.

    Meanwhile, Harrison Ford gueststars as the older Indy (post Last Crusade, pre-Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) and recounts the adventure while trapped in another adventure of his own.

    Well, when you start out as "World War I," you have to expect one sequel...

    Looking forward to seeing both.
    Reading the book Up In The Air now, but the movie deviates quite a bit apparently.

    Read The Road a while ago and loved it, but it looks like I'll have to wait for the DVD to see this one.

    I just watched Vertigo, and I thought it was great. It was either the restoration or the fact that it was shot in VistaVision or a combination of the two, but it looked astoundingly beautiful all the way through. The story was really interesting and full of strange turns. It was probably the favorite of the Hitchcock films I've seen (which includes The Birds, Psycho, North By Northwest, and Rear Window; I have Notorious on the DVR, so that'll be sometime relatively soon).

    It was originally called the "Great War", "World War" and/or, the "War to End All Wars".
