Recently saw Mel Gibsons remake of "The Life of Brian", had its moments but not as funny as the original.

BTW anyone seen 300? Is it worth seeing or is it true that its gayer than Top Gun?

No, the clown's right.  frown

I'm sick of hearing gym nerds talk about how "defined" all the men in the film were and how inspiring it was and then adding "oh and that one chick was hot too" as an afterthought.

John Carpenter's The Thing
Oh man, now this is a horror film. 12 guys cooped up together in an Antartic research station, chuck in an evil planet-devouring alien dog and two Norwegians (I was worried too, but they die quick) and you've got yourself a movie!  smile

I'm still coming up with theories about which person was infected when...

Saw BoG (read up, you lazy people!)

I wont rate it as such cause what I like and other people don't arent the same.But anyway, I liked it a lot. It was funny, and the eye candy was cute, sort of. And it portrayed ice-skating as it was meant to be. Haha.

All I knew about this movie was the title, so I was hoping for some sort of movie with lots of evicerating sword fighting. Thanks for spoiling it, Hooks! Geez.

B'day Clown: Indeed I would, possibly the best. Hmm, I wanna go see it again now.

I must admit SJM, I wasnt sure if I was going into the right film to begin with due to the dubious title. Sorry for the spoil :P

Blades Of Glory was indeed great, can't go wrong with a cast like that.

Amy Poehler creeps me out though, GOB Arnett could do a lot better, but I got dibs on Jenna Fischer!  love

And GOB would never say "You have a nice mouth" to her, because hers is clearly big and crooked.  tongue

Disturbia

I missed the first 30 minutes cause I'm always the late one. And I had to sit alone in the theater for 10 minutes before I managed to find my friends. Man we are SO fucking loud. Especially when we're screaming.

It wasn't like scary-scary-nightmare worthy, but when it's intense and you're with your friends its fun to scream. Like when you're at the amusement park. The movie was pretty kickass.

It was a thriller with a lot of humor. But in a good way.

I watched Batman Begins again and saw some cool stuff that I missed before reading the comics.

Excellent stuff, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright know movies, and know how to make good movies, that are ten times better than most Hollywood shit spewed out these days.
The three different acts were cool, and Timothy Dalton was great (Rocketeer moustache!  love )

Keep making them guys!

On a historial sidenote, A New Hope was released 30 years ago this month on the 25th. Somebody dust off a VHS or get a DVD and do a review, just for fun.

Spida' Man 3!

Saw it last night at the midnight showing. Despite some lame parts, I think I'd have to say I like this one the best out of all three.

The special effects are "OMFG PRETTY", and just happened to contain my two favorite Marvel Villains: Sandman and Venom. Both of which were portrayed pretty well, all things considering. Unlike SJM, I particularly liked Venom's design, but I only wish Eddie Brock had played a more prominent role as the black, pointy-toothed badass.

Highlight of the movie: The absolutely hilarious scenes when the venom poison is overtaking Peter Parker and he turns emo. Then proceeds to strut down the street, dancing and snapping to his own groovy theme music, all while passerbys look at him like he's a fucking nutjob.

Oh yeah, and Sandman was awesome in the movie. The fight scenes between him and Spidey are worth the price of admission alone.

Overall, I loved this movie. Go see it.
9.2/10

Um, I had no problem with his DESIGN, it's just the fact that Venom is in the film for a whole 15 minutes.

Spider-emo 3
Awful, they spent how many billion on this shit?
The dancing, the singing, the emo fringe, the shot of the USA flag, the long boring scenes and convenient setups (Brock in the church, I'm talking to you) Stan Lee getting a line, terrible.
Worst Spider-man Ever, Grace as Venom, J.K. Simmons and Sandman (to be more specific Hayden Church) didn't get enough screen time.

I enjoyed J.K. Simmons scene and Bruce Campbells appearance but not much else.  no no

I really, really intensely disliked emo-Parker. I hated him. I despised him. I wanted the Sandman to come along and choke him with sand. Stupid little sidewalk-grooving spaz. Although the Jazz bar scene was hilarious.

Those fifteen minutes are the best minutes of the movie. Venom has to be the best Spidey villain ever, and they exploded him! Why? Why? Why? Doc Ock would have made a wonderful recurring bad guy, and they drowned him. The Green Goblin was awesome, and he died. The pussy. Harry Osgoblin was amazing, and he went all nicey-nicey.  The Sandman, well, he was a hardened criminal idiot. They let the doofus live... and I'm guessing that he'll be back for more undeserved screen time at the first opportunity.   no no

  Gah. I'm losing patience with these comic book films. To date, Sin City is the only one that seems as faithful to the source material as it should be. The rest just deviate too much from what made them addictive.

I agree with every word. It was worth the price of admission just to have you write almost exactly word-for-word what I thought about it right before I came online. Bravo, Faze. I feel like we're suddenly a lot closer. You're the real superhero here.

hah, I really couldn't stand the whole peter parker combing his hair and acting all emo bit. 


spiderman 3
The movie wasn't a let down, I just wasn't blown away by it (except for some of the CGI. good lord, they have some particle effects masters).  I think there's a lot of critics being very nit-picky.  dunst has two parts where she sings for about a minute, who cares, how is that an issue unless you have some prejudice against kirsten?  I think they did alright for trying to squeeze so much into one movie.  however as a sacrifice they don't put much effort into how these things got started, the back story seems a bit like a cop out.  ie, how sandman became sandman and where the black suit came from.  still though, despite overly corny/dramatic parts, it's a good story they do a good job of tying everything together, the special effects and action scenes are awesome and add to the story (they didn't need to tack 'em on to cover up a bad story like they did with superman, is what I'm getting at)
8/10

tnuk: They tried to make that guy like Alfred, which is ironic since the first thing that came into my head for that final scene is "I wish Batman would swoop in and save this whole movie...", I actually wanted him to appear so badly.

Did you think Batman Begins wasn't close to the source material? (I still have to read Year One stupid Amazon delay) but the stuff with Rā's al Ghūl is good and close enough.

Batman Begins is closer than the previous movies to the original source. How's that?

That butler was nothing like Michael Caine.

To be perfectly honest, all the Batman continuities have been so hideously warped and played around with that this latest version of the franchise is just another mish-mash of generic Batmanesque images. Like Spider-man.

With any print-to-film transition, something is lost. Case in point: Jurassic Park, The Lost World. Awesome novel. Terrible, terrible, awful, wank-stain of a film.

Films that are original productions are much purer, as there's nothing to compare them to. Can you imagine if Star Wars had been a printed book or comic book before being turned into a movie trilogy? The fan reactions would have been divided between those who saw the films as a bold new imagining and those who wanted to hang George Lucas from the nearest tree (kind of like the reaction to the Phantom Menace).

I guess I'm just whining out of habit here, I mean, I knew they were going to change the storylines to fit within a single film, and that Spider-man was going to be made into an obnoxious little punk whilst he was melded with Venom... I just expected a slightly more polished job, I suppose.  hmpf
