EDIT: While I'm hatin on mofos, why has anyone ever given a shit about Kevin Smith or his movies? They are not good. But I guess if you make enough bullshit comics allusions, they'll forgive you anything, Kevin.

:shrug: I liked his early stuff. sure maybe Clerks is a bit much but Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob were fun movies. The last especially. Personally I thought Dogma was entertaining I don't particularly remember a bunch of 'gotta be Catholic' jokes but as a Catholic perhaps I didn't notice.

kevin smiths earlier films were pretty good but after a while i dunno wtf he was thinking. i fell off the bandwagon after dogma and came back breifly for clerks 2 which was a steaming smoking rotting corpse of a film. now i prefer his live talks at colleges and what not but thats it. that comic book show could have been great but most of the guys who worked there came off like major assholes like those american picker guys only stuck in a comic shop.

Clerks 2 was awesome. I was never a huge fan of the first one. Clerks 2 had more ridiculousness in it. What wasn't to love

Thor - Finally, got around to watching it last night and I liked the film.

Funny thing is every time the movie went back to Asgard, various metal band songs started playing in my head.

I loved seeing the settle nods at the other Avengers. "A scientist made great strides in Gamma Rays and disappeared". "Is that one of Stark's projects"?

Also, I'm pretty sure the SHIELD guy in the cherry picker with the bow when Thor was going after Mjolnir was Hawkeye.

The scene after the credits was a nice treat as well and looks to setup Loki's role in the Avengers.



Am I missing any other Avenger's references in the film?



tombstone is a must that movie is fucking classic. the thing and escape are also classics imo movies you can watch over and over.


Completely agree!

val kilmer made that fucking movie for me his doc holiday was awesome. i liked johnny ringo as well the guy who played him has done alot of cool roles ( i think he was in the first terminator and aliens) .


Hell yes he did I will never get tired of "I'm your huckleberry."

Pretty much everything Kilmer did in that movie was classic!

You are correct sir, he played Kyle Reese from the future in Terminator and Cptn Dwayne Hicks in Aliens. Bill Paxton also in Tombstone, in Aliens played Pvt "Game over man" Hudson.

MIB3 wasn't half as bad as I was expecting TBH. It's a decent rental if you ever enjoyed them in the past and the main villain is surprisingly a well-done character. Everything else is pretty much business as usual, but I wasn't expecting Tommy Lee to have such short screen time. Guy is getting old though ha.

Iron Man 2 - Finally, got around to watching this one. I enjoyed it though it could have been shorter. RDJ still plays Tony Stark perfectly. I liked the transition his character went through during the film. Cocky and self confident in the beginning as a mask to the realization he was dying. His rock bottom after his birthday party. Creating a new element to save himself and upgrade his suit. Stark comes full circle and back to his old self.

The smooth Sam Jackson as Nick Fury. The sexy Scarlett Johanson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. Rouke played a good villain and an interesting combination of Whiplash and Crimson Dynamo.

I really loved all the Avengers references. Stark uses Captain America's shield to prop up the laser. The monitors in the background of the SHIELD safe house showing the campus destruction (Hulk) and the New Mexico landing (Thor). The map with the locations highlighted Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Namor (possibly?), Red Skull, and Black Panther.

Overall, it was not as good as the first one but enjoyable.

Finally saw Borat, my teenage self probably couldn't have handled the nudity and sex jokes without flipping out. Though I enjoyed it, I actually enjoyed the menus, and the actual disc better.

I thought MIB3 was the best of the series. It had more heart, definitely, and Josh Brolin was fantastic as the 1969 Agent K.

Goofy aliens, cool locations, and a super-hot Pussycat Doll to start the movie off right.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Feast of Love - 7/10

Generally good.

Freakanomics - 8/10

Good, but don't agree with the school part.

Osmosis Jones - 9/10

I know it's not really an adult movie, but it was still really creative and imaginative.

Drive - Excellent movie.


I really don't get this... I thought it sucked and didn't live up to the hype at all... WTF was up with Gosling... in some scenes he looked like a broken retard in other scenes he looked like he was finally having some kind of emotions, but then still a retard. They wasted Cranson's abilities. The story line just jumped. About the only thing that was true was the music being better than the movie which, isn't saying all that much.

I loved TTRL. First viewing I wasn't sure what to think after it was over, because it came out around the same time as Saving Private Ryan and was a very different take on the war genre. But I watched it a second time and it's easily in my top 5 favorite movies ever made.

Harlem Nights-still funny as hell. Hadn't seen it in years.

Snatch-Likewise.

Barton Fink-one of my favorite Coen bros. movies.

Your Highness-just awful. At least Natalie Portman is smoking hot in it.

I just watched the Trailer... The idea of how much I'd have to shut off my brain and then try to think retard makes me think I can't watch that movie at all... I really really would like to see the Natalie Portman scenes though and I think they did that because they knew people wouldn't bother if it didn't have her... I may have to pass... In fact I know I'm going to regret it if I do watch it...

Captain America - I felt the movie was good. It wasn't the best out of the Marvel comic films but it was entertaining.

However, I want to see the Avengers and I felt it was required viewing before The Avengers.

The Darkest Hour - It was ok, entertaining enough. It tried to take itself seriously though too often, but that just didn't work.

We Need to Talk About Kevin - I enjoyed it, wish I didn't read anything about it before seeing it though.

Harry Potter Visits A Haunted House - It was alright, not particularly scary IMO.

Finally watched Iron Sky and have to say I loved it. Actually liked it better than Avengers, which I thought was just ok.

Iron Sky...moon nazi's with UFO's, earth space battleships, and who doesn't love seeing the statue of liberty blown apart by spaceship guns?

Omg I looooooved it. The way they talked and James Franco's character had me rolling. But then again I'm a sucker for Danny McBride's writing. Except for eastbound and Down. Third season blew...
