End of last thread.

 

I saw Heat last Friday. I am ashamed, but I did laugh.

Knuckleball!

...of course I had to watch it. Tim Wakefield, man, Tim. I wish they'd talked a bit more about mechanics of the pitch (just a little), but I loved seeing the famed knuckleballers together on a couch, yapping about their careers.

The Watch - Comedy about a neighborhood watch taking on aliens.  It was pretty funny, worth a watch.

Ugh. :p:lol:

Bullock is solid, but her co star in that one is so overrated.  I tried watching her sitcom and I had to quit after a few epis b/c of her.

Watching "Storage 24," which is basically a sort of Alien set in a public storage unit facility or something. It's rather mediocre/average for it's type, but with some decent acting moments by a couple of the actors and a decent creature. But also some bad acting moments. :lol: Nothing special, but an ok late night Netflix watch.

 

Snow Beast, with John Schneider, on the other hand ... not even worth the Netflix time. I got a few laughs out of the bad abominable-snowman like monster, the whiny daughter, and John's craggy face, but I couldn't watch it all. John, you'll always be Bo Duke to me (he was a decent Mr. Kent, too).

I can't imagine Snow Beast (2011) can top 1977's Snowbeast - Bo Svenson, Clint Walker and Yvette Mimieux vs a killer sasquatch-esque monster at a ski resort in a TV movie written by Joseph Stefano (Psycho, The Outer Limits). :)

The Numbers Station - John Cusack looking tired as a CIA Black Ops guy protecting a girl who sends codes to agents.  It was a decent action flick, not very long.  There were some fairly nonsensical parts, but I enjoyed how they retraced the story of the team before them.

Argo **** yourself.

 

  World War Z wasn't too bad.  Not quite the usual gore fest that you see in zombie movies, but it still seemed to build a little bit of tension here and there.

 

  I'd watch it again, but not in the theaters.

Dark Knight Rises - once again, Batman is one of the least compelling characters in his own movie. I loved the young cop and  Not. Catwoman.  the most. 7.5/10

My problem with the Nolan Batman movies is Christian Bale wasn't a very good Batman. He has a narrow chin that makes him look terrible in the mask, and his Batman voice just sounds like he has a cold. After seeing Equilibrium I figured he'd be a great Batman, I was wrong. Also, Batman is borderline obsessed with "The Mission", so having him quit so easily... twice... bugged me.

I mostly take solace in knowing that this was a deliberate sabotage by Nolan so they wouldn't make him make a fourth one.

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

I thought Bale was good as Bruce Wayne, but not very good as Batman.  I also really think it was less Bales' fault and more how it was directed.  Thankfully the villains and other characters more than made up for it for me.

Kevin Conroy from batman's animated adventures is the only one I can think of when I hear batman mentioned. Internal intone for the win!

 

-Secondarily, This is the end was hilarious, the wife and I loved it, highly recommend if anyone wants to see a fun funny movie and watch a lot of actors 'die' as 'themselves'.

Despicable Me.

 

Certainly a fair few wry smiles and half-giggles...
