I just finished watching Moon, I'm a bit late to the party but it was a good film, I basically sat there and accurately predicted most of the plot, normally this pisses me off but I was just pleasantly satisfied instead.

Watched the Norwegian film Dead Snow last night which was surprisingly good. Although I was expecting a lot worse. :lol:

Here's the summary from imdb. A ski vacation turns horrific for a group of medical students, as they find themselves confronted by an unimaginable menace: Nazi zombies.

The movie we've all been secretly waiting for.


The opening scene Shakes The Clown was pretty hilarious.

I was ten years old when Police Academy came out. My parents took me to the theatre and I thought it was teh funneh, but there were parts of it involving a podium that I just didn't understand at the time. My dad told me to be quiet because I kept asking out loud 'what's so funny? What's that woman doing down there?'

Ah, to be ten again.

Of all the movies I've seen lately ( which hasn't been many) I think my favorites have been Moneyball and Warrior. I didn't think Warrior would be all that great, and I have no use for MMA at all, but I was suprised by how little time it took for it to grow on me.


It's just too bad there hasn't been a great golf movie since Tin Cup.

You might like this one...

Saw the 'Iron Sky' trailer. Looks like the kind of Instant Classic that 'Dead Snow' was. Earth is under attack by Space Nazi's in UFO's.

No movies, but I have been delving into the Gold Box of Twin Peaks that my friend lent me a little while ago. Damn fine show, though I can't shake the 'soapy' feel of everything . . . though calling the show a soap isn't really on-point. Still, it's a very good watch.

The Adjustment Bureau - Pretty good action/conspiracy movie, Matt Damon and the girl had good chemistry.

The question of whether its an action movie or a romance one.. ;) Either way, it is quite good.

The girl with the Drago tatoo. Strange phenomenon, but the Hollowood remake is quite a bit better than the Scandinavian original with all the English speaking Sweedes.

I don't think I mentioned I saw Das Boot.

It really is awesome. Had to watch it in three tranches, but was superbly paced.

Not a movie.. but they had the final ever episode of Hustle tonight.

A nicely done episode with a couple of returning faces, and a con that came down to a redone version of the Sting once more..

It's always quirky to have a show that every now and then breaks the 4th wall by having cast talk directly to the camera.

The Rite.

You know, they didn't have to give Anthony Hopkins that demonic growling voice, he's already scary enough as he is.

The Village from M. Night Shymalan (Director of The Sixth Sense).

Very underrated movie. Not really a horror movie per se, but very clever cinematography, good acting, and quite a shocking end.

I think I lost whatever measure of respect that I for you over that statement.

I kinda dug it. The premise is pretty stupid, but the exectution wasn't bad at all.

Gonna get some of these other movies from Shymalan, the guy has potential. Scrap that. The guy is really good.

It became trendy to hate on M Night Shamylan a few years back. I think it's just because Sixth Sense was insanely good, and it is hard to live up to that every time out. I thought The Village was one of his better films.

Just don't watch the Mark Wahlberg one, that one was better off not happening.

Sixth Sense and Unbreakable.. the rest have just seemed to lose the plot. Or just become fairly.. inane rather then meaningful or smart.

Spurred on by the Honest Hearts dlc for New Vegas I watched an old favourite, the Mission with Robert DeNiro and Jeremy Irons. Fantastic movie where DeNiro actually seems to vary up his performance and for once not just rely on the same old tools. It's all the more striking when you realise it was based on actual events.

Have you not seen Stardust yet? DeNiro has a small changeup in that.. ;)

This.

I just finished watching Stand By Me again. Wonderful film.
