Yesterday I saw Kagemusha (The Shadow Warrior). It was quite long (and felt long due to the long takes used) and occasionally a little bit hard to follow in places but overall it was pretty great.
I had a zombie-filled weekend. At 6:15am on saturday I watched Survival of the Dead, a forgettable small-town-accidentally-infected-by-the-military-good-thing-the-kids-hooked-up-with-a-bad***-who-saves-the-day kinda picture.
Sunday was both Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead, and I guess neither one really did it for me. JMG summed up Survival pretty well a few posts ago, and while Diary did a better job of both scope and emotional impact, I didn't really care about any of the characters, and the hand-held cam style bored me after a while.
To correct my first line of the post:
I had a boring, disappointing zombie-filled weekend.
[FONT=Courier New]Over the weekend I watched the NBC Thursday night line up that I missed when I crashed on the couch Thursday night after work.[/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New]I watched the Spike TV Star Wars OT marathon on Saturday night, and yesterday afternoon I watched District 9 while the wife snoozed on the couch.[/FONT]

Watched "Daybreakers" this weekend. Pretty good, worth watching...somewhat unique.
May the force be with you.
Over the last few days I watched:
4 episodes of Chuck on Monday in tome for the finale.
The Road on Tuesday - not exactly the feel good movie of the year, but a well-done adaptation of the novel.
Mystery Team on Wednesday - funny, low-ish budget flick by the internet famous Derrick Comedy sketch group about 3 high school "detectives" that have been solving kid's crimes (of the 'Who stuck their finger in the pie?' variety) since they were kids. And now people think they're just weird, so they try and solve a real mystery - a murder.
3 episodes of Flashforward before tonight's finale.

Mummy of the raincoat is a gigantic trollop.
The Bridge on the River Kwai last night with Jack Hawkins (Ben Hur, Zulu fame), William Holden, and Academy Award-winning OT Obers.
¡Que la fuerza te acompañe!
