Checking out Avatar on friday at IMAX. Hopefully my experience will be more like Nick's than Devin's (CHUD.com reviewers, Nick gave it a 9.2 out of 10, Devin a 6.9)


The area between the balls and the butt is a hotbed of terrorist activity.

Equilibrium - This might be one of my favorite movies ever.

 

Fighting - Pretty meh. I like Tatum Channing or whatever his name is, but it wasn't a really engaging movie.

I laughed so hard at the part where he tries to teach the kid to talk like a real man.

Not as ridiculous as he did in the comics:

(only pic I could find)

Haha! Glad he doesn't have a green pony-tail. :*

I hope Mickey is good in the role...I'd love to see him continue his 'comeback' after years of being..well, less than stellar.

Twilight: I expected this to be crap since that seems to be the consensus. Wrong. While it is definitely nothing original, it's an above average movie and the atcing/writing despite some sore spots is really underrated. The leads were fantastic despite the emoness though Edward's family were dissapointing.

 

Push: Weird movie with a what is that the end? type finish...

 

Inkheart: Alright movie; but it was a lot more serious in nature than I thought it be.

District 9

 

I liked it.


There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

Avatar: bloody epic. One of the year's best movies, for sure.

 

Inglorious Basterds (again): Killin' Nazis. Great movie.


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.

Not a movie, but I did finish both seasons of Carnivale. KQD, you bastard! I've been putting off going to wikipedia to read more about it, but I resent the series getting cancelled. Swine hearted wretches!

Yeah, I was mighty pissed at HBO, but I can't blame them for ending the series. It was pretty expensive to make.

 

I just came home from seeing The Road. It was just as sad and depressing as the book.

I want to see the Road. I think it looks cool and I didn't even realize it's a book. I know it's made by the same folks who did No Country for Old Men, though, so I'm looking for a mortality rate something along the lines of an Alistair MacLean novel.

The Road is very, very bleak. You could probably read through it in an evening if you had nothing else to do.

 

And speaking of Carnivale, I'd have to say the episode where Jonesy gets

tarred and feathered

was one of my favorites.

District 9 - Good. I guess it is set up for a sequel, but I can't really imagine it carrying the same message a second time through. I think it is stronger as a stand alone movie.

 

Extract - Disappointing. Office Space is the bees knees, but this didn't have the charm. I suppose it's tough to hit it out of the park every time.

 

I also watched my blu-ray versions of Galaxy Quest and Gladiator. Always fun, I like the extras.

Dude, there is a Carnivale thread in my head somewhere, but I haven't gone to the wiki entry. I'm just reluctant to read behind the scenes stuff sometimes because I don't want to ruin what I got out of the movie/show/song. Sometimes I do, though.

Seen Sherlock Holmes, and I loved it, even as a long time fan. A genuinely clever adaptation with plenty of fizz.

 

Invictus was excellent, but less fizzy.

Why oh why did they even bother to make Night at the Museum2?

Am a huge Holmes fan (not the moviesl, just the books)...the ads make this new film look like Holmes=Bond or something, vs. an intellectual.

 

Ads misleading? ...I did like that they seemed to turn Watson into something a bit closer to the stories, instead of a bumbling idiot sidekick.

Battlestar Galactica's The Plan. Pretty good, gives insight from a Cylon point of view.

I always knew you were a woman of taste and discretion. :) Yes, Watson is far better. Yes, Holmes is quite action oriented. nbut then you will know from the books he is judo master, gets into boxing matches, and has tremendous physical control. He enjoys a chase and a scrap. I shouldn't pay too much mind to the ads. They are for the hoi polloi.

I just bought that one, haven't seen it yet. Still waiting for a complete season 4 set (without Razor which I already have) to be released some day.

 

Also, bought season 2 of Sarah Connor Chronicles. I've seen the first 10 or so episodes. Quite addictive, didn't get any sleep this night :)

 

What an awesome first and a half season so far. Me like :)

I saw sherlock holmes tonight. I have to agree with Wals, it is a solid film. I actually really enjoyed the sound/music and the style of the whole thing. Don't go in expecting any kind of story and you should be pleasantly satisfied with the action and tomfoolery abound.

I liked it lot more than Event Horizon or that other "resent" creepy scifi movie, which had something to do with the sun.
