Also, you're judging someone on a movie you have no personal connection to?
Can't you say that about every movie? What movie were you personally connected to? confused

Well, I finally saw Dark Knight. I had resisted because I thought the director really fucked up Batman Begins. The casting and writing were actually good, but the visual direction of the original completely spoiled it for me overall. But Dark KNight has done something unheard of in hollywood - made a sequel which had all the good things about the original but none of the shit. Usually the process of making a sequel acts like some kind of shit multiplier, but this time they actually got it right. Consider me impressed.

Also saw Wall-E. It was even better, if it's remotely fair to compare two movies that are so different.

The Day The Keaunu Reeveses Face Looked Like It Always Does: Still big grin

Anyway, my friend was desperate for something to do, I wouldn't have seen this at all by choice, so I lowered my expectations going into this and having not seen the original and not knowing its dealio I found it quite interesting if not a little outdated.
The CGI spheres and GORT didn't look so great on the big screen however and some of the script didn't make sense but it made movie sense.

But hey at least it had T-Bag and John Cleese being super serious for once, still beats Spider-man 3.

Rashomon

Very good tale about a murder told from multiple angles and viewpoints. Intriguing and absorbing toward the end. Can be interpreted in a lot of different ways, and it's deeper than Seven Samurai. Very worth watching.

I'm just in a phase of getting old arty movies from the library (I've got Wild Strawberries by Ingmar Bergman lined up  tongue , also, libraries are great and have tons of hard to find movies), but yeah, I'll watch some more mainstream stuff soon that you can actually relate to and not think I'm an art school fag.

Dance Of The Dead
Zombies in mah prom, eatin mah classmates!
Really great low budget flick, starts off in highschool everyone getting ready for prom with all the usual problems, but then for some reason, zombies arrive!
It's pretty funny and there's rock and roll and violence, highly recommended.

Garfield Gets Real

In this movie a cat named Garfield is a cartoon.  He lives with his owner named Jon Arbuckle and a dog affectionately called Odie.  Odie is a yellow mutt dog with a long neck and a rather large tongue, and he likes to lick Garfield and others.  Apparently, I gathered from the movie that Garfield enjoys playing jokes on Odie.  The whole gang go to work one day taking photography for newspapers.  Then Garfield and Odie escape into the "real" world where they run around and meet "real" animals.  This is probably one of the best cgi movies of the decade, and pretty much makes Wall-E look like dog-sh*t that's being squeezed out of a fish's *nus.  The writing and direction of the movie are also superb, you really get into the character's minds because they're so well written.  I won't say this is the best movie ever, but it ranks right up there as one of the classics.  If you haven't seen this movie yet, I suggest you add it to your collection as soon as possible.

The Day The Earth Stood Still (Shit)

SUCKS:
  • CGI UFS's
  • CGI fucking 20 feet tall Gort
  • In fact, over use of CGI overall
  • Making "Gort" a military acronym
  • Keanu Reeves neither saying "excellent" or moving in bullet time
  • So the "villain" was the black nanobot cloud from Prey? Seriously?
  • Only one "Klaatu Barada Nikto". I mean, wouldn't that have stopped the little Crichtons?
  • Couldn't a human entered one of the Spharks and thus saved the human race?
  • Every other line out of Huey Freeman's mouth being about killing Klaatu
  • "Okay, let's run away from the cloud that can destroy anything by going into the tunnel from Cloverfield that collapsed and killed the heroes!"
  • Ted Theodore Logan not having any emotion like the original Klaatu.

RULES:
  • John fucking Cleese
  • The whole "being born on Earth" thing
  • Not as bad as Spider-Man 3

And, uh, yeah, that's about all the pros. Go watch the original, kids.

The Dark Knight

Good film.  I can't say I like it more than Batman Begins, but it's definitely a solid sequel and part of the Batman story.  Ledger was great as the Joker.  Though the lip licking was off-putting, I'm sure that was the idea.  Aaron Eckhart also played his parts well, though I can't say I liked that he was killed off.  I mean after Mr. Freeze and the Joker, Two-Face is my favorite Batman villain.

Everything else has already been said about it, so there's really nothing to say that it's as dark, disturbing, and action-packed as it claims to be.

Wanted

Fuck this movie.  Aside from a completely unlikeable cast of characters with an especially unlikeable protagonist, it was occasionally fun to watch.  No reverse gunshot CGI effects, however, could make me not hate it.  Even Morgan Freeman, a man who has made a career out of being likable, annoyed me, though this was largely because his character struck me as overly cliched.  The main character's narration would have been pathetic if it weren't so pretentious.  It was clear he was trying hard to be a panicky spaz during the first act but ended up coming across as a douchebag.

The premise was specious but I could dig it.  The plot, on the other hand, really have either been more clever or more straightforward.

All I remember from it was silly gunfights, the hot chick (Kristen Hager), Angelina Jolies ANGRY SCOWL FACE and her butt.

Although Freeman does look like Professor Badass:


The guy who plays Deputy Ops Rawls in The Wire was totally in Die Hard 3!
And Chris Rock was in Beverly Hills Cop 2!
Both films on tonight, at the same time, I flicked back and forth but I really should get one of those things that lets you watch two things at once.

I just saw it last night. A

How you spin a nice tale told around Who Wants to Be a Millionaire I don't know, but the Indians have figured it out.  This one also indirectly shows you the complete shit conditions that many live in in this world.  Made me think about what I have.

Bonus:  No Regis and no laughable song & dance numbers until the credits.

re: wanted, yeah, a really poor execution of a weak but promising concept. I didn't expect quality, just fun, and it took itself far too seriously for this to be possible.

Of course, some idiot probably shot themselves in the foot trying to curve a bullet after watching it. So it wasn't a total waste.

Saw the new Indiana Jones flick tonight.

I spent the first 15 minutes or so thinking "This isn't as bad as I expected."

That concludes the polite portion of this review.

What in the bloody hell?! Seriously? Are you kidding me? These are just three of the dozen or phrases I found coming to mind (and occassionally to my lips, as I shouted lucas, speilberg, and anyone else responsible for this piece of crap through the TV) as I watched this movie.

Apparently in the indiana jones universe, the catholics AND the new-age nut-jobs are both right. I'm willing and able to suspend disbelief quite a bit, but "aliens built atlantis and taught early man to farm" and "Jesus was the divine son of god and if you drink from his favorite coffee mug you can live forever" are just not two ideas I can comfortably hold on to at the same time.
