So I watched some movie called Serenity the other night, and it was actually pretty good... it had space battles or something, which was neat.... but it also had this hot chick named River and she was a badass.... like it'd be rape all over the living room and stuff... oh yeah.
You never experienced Firefly in its 13-episode glory? eek
If you didn't hate Serenity,put it on your Netflix list, you won't be disappointed.

... anyhoo...
Three And Out
After two guys get run over by his train, an unlucky underground driver (McKenzie Crook) is told that if a third one gets squished, he'll get a 10 years pay severance package, so off he goes to find a suicidal someone to help him get it, and in comes angry Irish bum Colm Meaney (I wuv CM) who Crook saves from jumping off a bridge and hijinks ensue.

Nice little story, if not wobbily realised in some scenes, but together they're great.

Also, Gemma Athertons boobs appear... I didn't know she'd get them out, I swear! I know you're all thinking I'm some kind of boob movie maniac, but...... wait, I don't deny it.

The Edge of Heaven

A film about the crossing paths of six people set in Germany and Turkey.  A good story (though somewhat depressing) that was nice to take in as a break from the usual big theater crap.

so I just watched Requiem for a Dream, I haven't seen it since the premiere years ago.
Aronofsky is one of my favorite directors, I was hooked after seeing Pi, so I love the cinematography, the adaptation, the music, and the acting. The power of this movie has kept me away from it all of these years- the final 20 minutes are pretty wrenching, and combined with the Clint Mansell/Kronos quartet soundtrack it is almost too intense (I have seen more graphic movies, but few that have been as well orchestrated). I was glad to see it again, however, and would highly recommend it to anyone that would like to see a complete piece of filmmaking. Be warned, it is not a happy movie. but still go see it (unless you are not old enough to rent it I suppose...).
A+
and Faze, Jennifer Connoley gets all naked in this movie (although not in the edited version) in case you are interested...she is really attractive big grin

The Believers (1987)

Slowest movie ever! First hour nothing much happens. Only cool and gory things started happening the last 40 mins. It looked like a movie MST3k might riff.

Righteous Kill
DeNiro and Pacino together, reminds me of the TV show Dexter, a cop is suspected of killing criminals who slip through the justice system

It's generally predictable in the end, but I didn't hate it like most reviews seem to have.

Tropic Thunder
Some hit and miss jokes, the secret cameo that everyone new about a week before it was released who was supposed to steal the show, didn't, RDJ stole it, he was awesome.
Bill Hader and the pyrotechnics guy were way underused, fuck Matthew McConiwhatever (was Owen Wilson supposed to play his part before he attempted suicide?)
The action sets were pretty spectacular and some hilarious bits (like the slowmo explosion shock scene where everyone is screaming and Jack Black is shouting "My ass! My ass!")
But for me, Ben Stiller, and his obsession with people with a learning disability, is 2nd after Will Ferrell of actor/writers who should stop writing parts for themselves and do some other damn movies.

Technically speaking, they mostly had a valid argument, but the majority of the activists were such colossal douches it was really hard to feel any sympathy for them. California needs a hippie early warning detection system put in place. hmpf

- Hello, we're the characters, I'm Casper Van Dien or something, and I'm imitating the old sarge from the first movie, here's my right hand girl, she has an atrocious French accent!
- I hate you both already, especially you Frenchy, when do you die?
- frown Oh, well, here's a nerdy black guy and Jolene Blalock pushing her plastic face and X-Box-huge collagen inflated lips around in front of her!
- ...
- Ok lets get into the action, we'll mill around a bit and then some bad CGI bugs will attack us, then the low budget will start to show, the characters will get even more annoying, the plot will go strait down the shitter and in the end, a guy will fly into a giant vagina-faced bug!

z0mg, I forgot that I saw War, Inc
Since Disney didn't want a direct Grosse Pointe Blank sequel, John Cusack incorporates many of its ideas into this film, and the similarities distracted me through the whole thing!
Let's see if I can remember them:
-John Cusack as a Hitman? Check!
-Joan Cusack as his assistant? Check!
-Dan Akroyd? Check!
-He's more interested in pursuing a girl? Check!
-Bad guys trying to kill him all over the place? Check!
-Hitman nemesis? Check!
-He doesn't complete his main hit assignment until the end, and then he has a change of heart? Check!

It's really weird, it's like Grosse Pointe Blank set in the near future, with some extra cast thrown in!

I liked the battle sequence near the end and there were some funny parts.

I've been watching a lot of movies lately... now I know how Siskel and Ebert feel! big grin
(if I was two people and one of those two people was a corpse)

The Exterminating Angel

I was already terrified of visiting Mexico before I saw this, but up until now it was just because of the water and the sex trade... actually, just the sex trade.  frown

Now I am terrified of tense, existentialist, psychological film-making. Surprisingly entertaining, seriously compelling, and packed full of raving socialist undertones, probably the most fun I've had watching a movie in a while, I highly recommend it. smile

A+

Knocked Up

I'm not at all impressed with their unfeasible business model, I had that same basic concept for a website years ago! Except it was just about cameo appearances by Ben Stiller and not porn. STILL. SAME THING. They totally owe me millions in royalties... and a matching hat to go with it, something in "ostentatious" would be nice. smile

Overall it was pretty good, I'd already seen Pineapple Express, so I knew what to expect, lots (seriously) of pop culture references, too many fat guys for me to feel comfortable with my own insecurities, Seth Rogen's deep, husky voice, etc. Harold Zoid had some great moments as well. My favourite character was the Asian gynaetographer that she didn't like; there was something about his jerkiness I could really identify with. hmpf

Final note: that was the second best use of Rock Lobster for a sex scene I've ever seen! eek
(the first was my grade five school play, it's a long story!)

Oldboy

Super fun, brilliantly crafted revenge movie, and yet so much more. One of the best movies I've ever seen. Thems Koreans can sure make a compelling story.
10/10

Superbad

Pretty good for a "teen comedy". Seems I'm the last person in North America to see it (the beauty of libraries, free DVDs, you just have to wait). Still, 'they don't make them like they used to' applies to how I feel watching this movie. The acting skills by the leads really carry the story. I just miss the comedy of the 80's frown
6.5/10

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Not the best anime movie I've seen, but still an entertaining one. Get ready for endless loops of that noise a cicada makes. I love hearing it on hot summer days. ^_^

Been watching a few classics online as of late...

Nosferatu (1922)
Ah, the granddaddy of all horror movies in it's silent glory. Previously, I had only seen snippets of this, so any opportunity to see the rest is one worth taking advantage of. Basically, a German interpretation of Bam Stoker's Dracula, with different character names and a much creepier villain. As with any old movie, especially ones of the silent variety, I base alot of my criticism on whether or not the movie holds up after all this time. In Nosferatu's case, the 86-year old film is still incredibly creepy. Max Shreck's portrayal of Count Orlok is one of the reasons this movie is so great.

Alot of people I know write off movies like this because they're silent, but one of the real pleasures of this film was the soundtrack, comprised of mostly pipe organ compositions, which set the tone of the movie perfectly.

Anyone who's interested in seeing it for themselves, here's a Youtube link to the entire movie:
