Pandorum, a sci-fi horror movie. It was surprisingly good with some twists I didn't see coming.

 

I liked it also but Cung Le sure didn't help the picture.

The Informant - Very good. Just wonderfully entertaining, but definitely makes me want to know more about the whole story.

 

There was a good This American Life about that and there's also a book about it as well.

I thought Pandorum had a lot of promise, but I was kind of disappointed that they spent so much energy on the horror monster element to it. I think it would've been more interesting if they'd kept that to a bare minimum for story needs and focused more on the chrs/other weirdness. It's like it was trying to be two different movies.

 

Most recent theater film I saw: How to Train Your Dragon, 2D version. Very cute w/the dragons & the rest worked well enough. Even my mother liked it.

My initial reaction to him was 'what the hell is going on here?'. Once I figured out that the

ship contained people from countries all across the planet it didn't bother me as much. He actually made more sense as a survivor than the German scientist lady. Maybe she had a secondary degree in ass-kicking to stay alive

:lol:

 

Overall I had a great time with the movie and I wish more sci-fi epics like it were being made.

Watched Django from 1966. Lots of people got killed. Movie was pretty over-the-top. Not as good as the Leone films, IMO, but it certainly has its low budget charms.

I really liked Django. For the coffin.

Awesome movie!

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Kick-Ass ...it kicked ass. Hit-Girl was hilarious.

 

This.

 

EDIT: The first sentence of that was my facebook status immediately upon leaving the theater. Also, "I've always wanted a bazooka."

In 7th grade, I teach the students how Chuck Norris took down the Roman Empire, so it is good that you are starting early on this curriculum.

yeah that was pretty clever (actually wish I hadn't been spoiled as to what was in it before seeing it)

Finally watched Avatar.

 

That's James Cameron at his best. Inane script, nice action.

 

7/10

 

I just got it on Blu-Ray. It looks fantastic, easily the best Blu-Ray showcase movie out there.

Didn't they crop the Blu-Ray version?

I read this on some Amazon review:

 

Now despite the fact that this movie has no special features of any-kind. This Blu-ray disc transfer clearly uses every bit of data in the 50GB disc to give viewers the definitive raw-original quality presentation, THX-certified.

 

PICTURE QUALITY:

The Picture quality is probably the best any Blu-ray will ever be. They even present the video in it's original filmed aspect ratio that of the 3D IMAX aspect 16:9. So you actually see more picture because Jim Cameron cropped his 3D release to the wider aspect ratio for 2D theaters, while 3D theaters got the full aspect ratio presentation.

I agree! I also bought it on Blu-Ray and it looks beautiful! You can admire the animation much more.

Any movie that has inspired over a 100 sequels is automatically cinema gold.

But what was up with the Franco Nero staring Rambo-esque Django sequel?

Watched The Losers.

 

Great fun. Loved the bit about how villains henchmen understand the meaning of "the nod". But good action and fun characters = fun.

Paramount's "Iron Man 2" got an international head start on its domestic debut this Friday, pulling in $100.2 million in 53 foreign markets. While Hollywood blockbusters typically open around the same date in most countries, some get an overseas jump of a week or more on their U.S. debuts.

 

Any Europeans seen this yet? Is it the best thing since sliced bread?
