Interesting, and it'll keep your interest.
But very confusing, with an ending that leaves you a little angry at some unexplained facts.

Atlas Shrugged was great!

If you have libertarian leanings (fiscally conservative and socially liberal), you should check it out!

That's almost impossible to be real public opinion and not just pre-release irritation. It JUST came out tonight.

Democrats and liberals will probably hate it. Republicans might like it. Libertarians will like it. The CGI is bad, but the acting and the story are really compelling to me.

Actually, if you check Rotten Tomatoes again, you'll notice that while only 6% of the (presumably mostly liberal) critics liked the movie, 87% of the audience did! Something is wrong here. wink

Rotten Tomatoes is a terrible way to decide whether you're going to like, or even watch a movie. Some of the best movies ever are absolutely godawful. Some of the best television shows ever are bloody terrible.

One of the many ways you can actually enjoy a film is to sit back and laugh at how massively cheesy, how obviously low-budget, and how predictable or just plain messed-up it is.

Example: The TV series Renegade starring Reno Raines, a man who looked like a shaved monkey. It was on at 3am a few years ago when a friend and I used to stagger back to his place from the pub. We'd turn on the TV whilst cooking drunk food, and Renegade would be on. It got to be a regular thing. We'd go to the pub, stagger home at 3am, make a massive bacon sandwich, and watch Renegade. Then I'd go home and sleep for about three hours before getting up for work... and since he didn't have work the following day, he'd get a proper sleep. The bastard.

But anyway, watching Renegade whilst drunk was awesome. Even though it was insanely bad. When ITV stopped showing it, we stopped prolonging our drinking sessions, and I got more sleep. But I'd have traded that sleep for more of that crappy TV show.

I hope this post made sense. I really do.

This. If you want a more proper gauge on how good or bad a movie is, there are plenty of reviewers around on the web that you might find helpful, like Jeremy Jahns and Shmoesknow from YouTube. Those are the ones I have subscribed to and they've not steered me wrong before. Rotten Tomatoes is the worst possible source for movie info.

A poo flinging? I'm above that hobbitboy. However I will fling this pie at you. *flings pie*

Dark Knight isn't a crapfest. It's not as good as it could've been, but neither is it as bad. As a sequel to Batman Begins, it did an adequate job.

Of course, the 1989 Batman pwns all others. But Dark Knight gets major points for Heath Ledger's Joker.

Praise to you for recognizing the awesome/horrible duality that is Renegade.  I picked up season 1 on DVD for a friend from the $5 budget bin at WalMart.  Great gift find.

The important thing to remember is that there's nothing you can put in somebody's food that will turn them into the cast of Renegade!

I hate the Heath Ledger Joker, but I think thats mainly due to all of the fan art of him that is always the exact some portrait.

Anyone seen the movie adaptation of George Orwell's 1984? I have never been as depressed or confused watching anything in my life. And I've been through the entire offended page.  wtf?

Fun Fact: You may have heard of George's book 'The Road to Wigan Pier'. I live in Wigan! =D And the pier sucks. Shut down now anyway.

Christian Bale = worst Batman/Bruce Wayne EVER.

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra.

I first saw this film about 8 years ago and recently revisited it again.

Made in 2001 this movie was shot as a homage to classic B movies of the 50's and early 60's.

I can not describe how awesome this movie is. The characters are cliche, the dialog is horrendous, acting is terrible and the special effects I swear where truly from the 50's.

It does what Black Dynamite did to Blacksploitation and the 70's.

10 Alien dances out of 10.

Absolutely what I was talking about. Pitch Black is a terrible film in many respects... but if you firmly suspend your disbelief from the highest point you can find, and look at film as mindless entertainment, it's well worth watching. It's like somebody decided to make as bad a tribute to Alien as they could, for the largest production value they could think of.

The casting is brilliant as well. Or should that be mis-casting? Either way, it's a wonderfully well-polished turd. I really do like it - even though I'm well aware of its flaws. Many, many, many flaws.

All hail THOR mighty god of thunder.

It was good, but I was disappointed with the lack of exploration into certain characters and explanations as to what their doing and really, who are they in connection to everything.

The cast however was good and the acting was above some other superhero movies with the exception being Portman's like/love over Thor is a little too much to take.

All the main Asgardians were great (Thor, Loki, Odin) but with the lesser characters, again not enough info.

The only mortal you get to learn anything about is portman and that makes the mortals seem like little more than background fillers. I know its a movie about Thor but he is mainly on earth for the film.

All in all, if you have read Thor comics or even watched some of the animated features about Thor in recent years then you won't be too bothered about the lack of information given. I did hear a few "who's that" and "where are they going" remarks and I can't say I'm surprised.

I'm giving this a 7.5/10 because I loved Thor as kid and still do.

Memoirs of a Geisha
I wanted to watch this because Japan and Geisha's fascinate me. At first I was getting worried when the talking was in Japanese, and I thought I'd need subtitles, but that was just the first five mins or so, then I could relax...

The movie was pretty good, but also a bit disappointing. Why? Well, it sort of portrayed Geisha's as glorified prostitutes, and that's not what they are. That side I thought let it down a bit, actually a lot, but otherwise it was a decent movie, reasonable characters and acting, some nice visuals, and beautiful Japanese garden near the end...

I thought the portrayal of Geisha in that movie was rather respectful and informative.... rather than just glorifying them as would be prostitutes, it attempted to paint the picture of them practicing a highly skilled craft.
