Yeah, Army of Darkness is one of my Faves as well.  Love some of the lines in that film, including:

"See this...this is my BOOM STICK!!!
"If any of you PRIMATES so much as looks at me funny, then..."
"Good, bad...I'm the guy with the gun"
"Your shoes are untied..."
"What, were you born in a barn?  Close the door!  Yeah, you were born in a barn, just like the other primates..."

Just caught Burn Notice episode #1, and it's good.  Bruce is especially funny in it.  One thing about him, he's one of the most natural actors around; he IS his character.  It's not like he's having to play a character, he is it.

I like how Army of Darkness was one of last movies to not need CGI special effects, I also like the ED trilogy as a whole

I just had a thoroughly good time watching Evil Dead 2 for the first time in years. And right now I can't think how films can ever get better than that.

Should I watch Army of Darkness? Yes, yes I should.

edit: Groovy.

I personally enjoyed Army of Darkness the most of the three movies. It was much more comedic, which worked very well in its setting. However, I will admit that ED2 has a much nicer blending of horror and comedy than AoD.

Ash seemed way too stupid in AoD, I thought. They didn't have to try so hard to make it comedic - the ridiculousness of the whole premise was funny enough. The third film just felt too self-aware and forced.

Evil Dead 2 is the best, whilst AOD has its moments you can't help but cringe as the humour rockets from crazy ass three stooges tribute to just annoyingly hammy cartoony campbell.

Case in point, 'HOW ABOUT SOME HOW CHOCOLATE?'

Well if you don't like over the top Campbell then I would suggest you avoid My Name is Bruce. Otherwise it is quite fun with Ted Raimi (yes Sam's brother) making mulitple appearances.

The strange thing is that the best part of getting the dvd for My Name is Bruce is that you get Bubba Ho-Tep with it. Now I really enjoyed that film and there was no over the topness in his role as Elvis stuck in a retirement home with JFK who had been coloured black after the assasination. Real enjoyable film though.

Ash vs Evil Dead is pretty effing great, so far. Is anybody else watching it?

I've seen the first two episodes, yet to see the third. It's a lot of fun.

I'm just sad that only the pilot is an hour long.

It was more like 40 minutes.

To be honest, I like that this is a 30-minute show. It means that it zips along at a nice, fast pace and that they can dedicate entire episodes to things like the dinner in episode 2 or the seance in episode 3 without it feeling like you're wading through sequences that exist purely to pad the running time like you'd find in, say, The Walking Dead.

I like that it keeps the whole thing feeling episodic, too. The films largely felt like individual entities that formed a larger whole rather than one big story cut up into 3 portions and, so far, each episode of the show is following suit.
