I couldn't even sit through the opening sequence of that movie.

I think you may have missed its rather prominent tongue which was planted quite firmly in its rather prominent cheek?

Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Face it, sequels suck...unless they're directed by Guillermo del Toro.  wink
Hellboy II is a great film and more fantastic than the first one. I do hope that del Toro and the rest of the crew come together again and do a third film. A

Man, I like bad and over the top movies but Shoot em up just didn't sit right with me.

Got me a good copy of At the Earths Core Journey to the Center of the Earth. It could have been worse, at least I didn't feel disappointed by it.

Also watched Forgetting Sarah Marshell, and was not expecting it to be any good (really low hopes) but was surprised. Quite watchable.

Yea, I was surprised by that too. Score another one for Apatow I guess...
Gocad, you might have pushed me over the line with your Hellboy review. I might have to check it out before it's off the big screen, since I can imagine what Del Toro has done with the visuals....

Agreed, I expected probably alot worse even though I am an Apatow film fan. I was pleasantly surprised by how many loud laughs I gave out during the movie..! Once it was over I did say how I'd easily watch it again, so that's a good sign.

Meh, the best part was when they referenced Godspeed You! Black Emperor. It seemed really long and some of the humour was a little ... odd, not good odd, misguided odd.

Yea, I think it is the funniest movie I have seen this year laff

I almost forgot, two of the funniest elements for me in Sarah Marshall were: Siegel's Dracula puppet musical (which he was writing in real life, prior to the movie being conceived...), and the horrible network drama shows complete with Baldwin, and later Bateman, one-liners.

I finally saw Iron Man. I am so behind the times.

I like Robert Downey Jr, but I don't like watching things that don't have robots exploding so I've never actually watched any of his movies until now. I have to say, he did a really good job. Especially when there were robots exploding. What a great actor! His father (Robert Downey Sr) must be smiling down at him from heaven right now.

Dawn of the Dead (2004)

I ain't afraid of no ghosts!

Oh.... they're zombies. I'm paralyzed with terror, then. smile

I'm glad that that is out of the way, because I was surprised at how fun this remake was! I didn't expect to enjoy it because I really loved the original, and in terms of character and development and coherence, it was terrible. But, like Earthworm Jim, through the soil it did crawl, and as a zombie action movie, it succeeds SPECTACULARLY. I highly reccommend, but for completely different reasons to the original!

I feel very sorry for a Wil Arnett. First his parents make the mistake of almost naming him after a highly successful biscuit manufacturer, and then, after Arrested Development he gets stuck in one bad comedy role after another. frown

Actually, I have it rented, but I haven't watched it yet, so this is more of a pre-emptive review... but I read the plot synopsis on Wikipedia and everything, so I am MORE THAN QUALIFIED to comment!

Rachel Getting Married
No exploding robots here, although a completely human and  eek sympathetic eek character in Anne Hathaway. I guess she can act.
This movie was put together almost flawlessly by Jonathan Demme, and the story completely sucked me in; he easily wove the public event of the wedding with the complex familial relationships, steadily adding information and characters (beginning 3 days before with a house full of people, complete with the impromptu semi-soundtrack by the wedding band).
My only possible gripe comes with the 3 extended social scenes: although the scenes were well executed and enhanced the atmosphere, they felt just a bit long. Otherwise, go see this movie if you enjoy good films- it is excellent. and amazingly, not a depressing film...not really

For clarity:




See? Uncanny resemblance!

But, anyway, this movie is boring, long, and overrated, don't watch it. Spoiler: he eats poison mushrooms and dies.

I also watched Iron Man crazy-late, like Jeff. I thought it was "just okay." I'm sure it was better than the first (recent) Hulk and the 3rd Spider Man, but I just don't like movies that feature terrorists. Even if the movie says terrorism is bad, they are still giving them publicity, and maybe some kids will become impressionable. By which I mean, I get it, terrorist are the only "pc" bad guy nowadays. Oh look, a tannish guy -- kill him!

I then watched "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" which was very good. I like Tally McWhat'shisface, the lead actor/writer/naked guy (from Freaks and Geeks!). If you like seeing naked guys, this is the movie for you. I appreciated how many awkward naked situations he was willing to put himself into for the sake of comedy. The supporting actors were good too. Good job, movie: A

By the way, Freaks and Geeks was a good tv series. You should watch it on DVD. A-

PS- into the wild was totally lame. That guy is lame. Alaska is lame. Being a prick and making your family worry needlessly is lame. Oh no, my parents are so terrible. I'm gonna go date some really young hippie chick and live in a bus and get skinny!

The following films all earn a whole can of alphabet soup for their troubles! They were all excellent.

The Hudsucker Proxy

Much better than The Big Lebowski. I laughed and everything!

I think that was Keanu Reeves in his finest cameo ever... he was a masseuse! eek

Cannibal: The Musical!

Can you believe Blockbuster actually had it in stock? eek

"But you made it to Wyoming!"
"I know, but I would have been better just letting them catch me."
"What? Why?"
"Have you ever been to Wyoming!?"

Return of the Living Dead

It was seasonally appropriate. Paramedics are inbound! big grin

Pulp Fiction

It was good, but Reservoir Dogs was better.

One mystery remains... we never got to find out what Marvin thought! You moron, Vega! roll eyes

Raising Arizona

Wow, another Coen brothers movie that was a lot better than The Big Lebowski!

Boo, have to wait a further 2 weeks for Zack & Miri here... frown

The Incredible Hulk

About 6.5 times better than I thought it was going to be.  Plus points: Opening titles almost identical to the 70's TV series, Bill Bixby cameo (via a TV), Lou Ferrigno cameo, and the inclusion of the "lyrical piano" theme  from the TV show as Ed Norton tries to thumb a lift in the rain.  Also, Tony Stark.

Plus, it kicks the arse of the Ang Lee version.

movies i've seen over the past month or so:

the chronicles of riddick

the most ridiculously awesome and badass sci-fi flick ever. the director's cut even moreso. 9/10.

tropic thunder

amazing. probably the funniest movie i've ever seen in theaters, top 5 funniest movies i've ever seen. 8/10

kingdom of heaven

the director's cut is great, leaps and bounds above the theatrical version. 8.5/10

blade runner

THIS, in my humble opinion, IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER MADE (the director's cut, that is) 10/10

apocalypse now

THIS IS TIED FOR BEST MOVIE EVER MADE (in my humble opinion) 10/10

diary of the dead

george romero, how could you do this! terrible acting, cardboard cutout characters, terrible writing (the scene where

2/10 george romero, please redeem yourself. make something as good as the original dead movies.

a knight's tale

the worst movie ever made. i consider myself a connoiseur of bad movies, and usually finding a new "worst movie ever" would be cause for celebration because it would be another bad movie for my friends and i to watch and mock, but not a knight's tale. a knight's tale has defeated me. it's the only movie so bad i can't get through it. i could only get about half an hour in. 0/10

the happening

m night shymalan's career continues it's steady plunge. features marky mark outrunning the wind, zooey deschanel looking creepy, terrible acting, and worse effects. 1/10
