Big Fan - Didn't expect much but as the movie went on, it got more and more fascinating. People like this really exist. Patton Oswalt did a great job and even better if you don't know who he is.

The 3D really immersed you in the movie though; nothing original, but really well done. I'd say it's easily this generation's version of Star Wars.

I typically can't stand 3D, but you missed out if you didn't see it in theatres as intended.

That's been sitting in my instant queue on Netflix for like 6 months. I'll try and catch it soon.

BLASPHEMY!
Although to be fair, I don't know what to call this generations Star Wars. Lord of the Rings? I don't think kids got into that one as much as the original SW trilogy back in the day though.

The airplane and roller coaster also hit that spot for me because when I was a kid I used to be afraid of those things for those reasons.[/SPOILER]


For me, it was Twilight Zone: The Movie that made me too shit-scared to fly. That part where John Lithgow opens the windowshade freaks me the Fuck out everytime.

Had a movie night last night:

Watched Quarantine 2 last night. It was ok, about what I expected. It reminded me that I want to see [REC] eventually. I looked up the [REC] blu-ray on Amazon last night and a new copy was listed for $999 :shock: and a used, like new copy was $35.

My girlfriend wanted to see No Strings Attached since she liked Friends With Benefits so much. About halfway through the movie, I finished surfing the internet and actually started watching it for about 5 minutes. I got up, walked over to the PS3, and pressed the eject button. My girlfriend said "thank you" with a sigh of relief and it went back in the sleeve to go back to BlockBuster Express. What a terrible fucking movie. I'm not much for romantic comedies to begin with, but even with that bias aside the movie was truly awful. So many moments where it tried to be funny and you're just staring at the screen wishing they would just roll the credits and end it.

Also watched Rango. It was okay. Seemed to drag on a lot near the end.

It's one of those "you had to be there" moments. It blew me away when I saw it in theatres in 3D for the first time. Viewing it on HBO long after just wasn't the same. And yes the flaws of the actual movie were more apparent. Still, I look forward to what the franchise does next.

The Warriors Way - This movie was fun as hell. It's basically a samurai/ninja that lives in a cowboy western town. Nice mashup of genres and great cast! Wish I had seen this in theaters but I never heard of this movie until earlier at my redbox.l

Finally got around to Martyrs. Out of all the modern French horror I've seen, it ranks at the bottom with Frontier(s). I haven't watch the latter for quite some time, but lordy, Martyrs had a promising start, but really just fell apart in the second act.

Sorry, that is the correct name. Yeah unfortunately I didn't care for it. I didn't have any expectations going in. After an hour I checked how much time was left. Didn't care for any of the characters and the main character kind of annoyed me. Liked his little speech though before a game of pool where he gets the whole room to pay attention.

Today I saw Wet Hot American Summer. Thought it was okay. I was laughing often which was good. Wish they would have cut out some characters and the main camp leader lady was odd. I didn't get her acting. It seemed like she was two different people sometimes.
The nerdy teacher who teaches a small group of kids about space and stuff was phenomenal. Loved it when the focus was on him and the kids in his group. One girl was wearing a The Cure shirt which is endearing to me.

Yeah, you pick up all kinds of stuff that you missed. I didn't even realize Matt Damon's character was gay until the second viewing. Most of his comments and actions just made him look like an asshole, but after watching it again you can tell he's trying desperately to hide that he's gay. All the homophobic comments and flirting with girls only in front of other guys.

I just watched Fast Five and Your Highness and was pleasantly surprised by both. Might be because I had such low expectations.

Also might be because I was slightly intoxicated while viewing them.

I have watched a bunch of movies in the last week or two so here goes.

Conan-- I thought it was good but all I was expecting was a guy killing people. The story, acting, etc. sucked but I wasn't expecting otherwise. Would rather have seen a movie about Khal Drogo set before a Game of Thrones.

Season of the Witch-- Not as big of a piece of crap as I thought it would be. I watched the whole thing, so for a Nicholas Cage movie that's about he highest rating I can give it.

The Conspirator-- I was surprised by this movie and how much I enjoyed it. I would recommend this one for sure.

Drive Angry-- A huge piece of crap but so huge I watched it all. I thought it was very unintentionally funny. Plus I was drunk which helped a lot.

Outlaw-- Another great movie that I highly recommend.

The Sultan Sea-- Watched this at 3 am or so on Showtime and it was good enough I stayed up to watch the whole thing. Surprisingly good acting from Val Kilmer and Vincent Denofero (sp?). Anyway it is good.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes-- Much better than I expected it to be. Some parts with the humans got boring but I think the end 1/4 of the movie made up for it.

Your Highness-- Stupid, stupid movie and I couldn't even finish watching it. There were several funny spots but the 5 minutes in between each one could get pretty painful.

Saw Fright Night on Friday and it was surprisingly good. The fun part about it is that the trailer leads you in a different direction than the movie goes (in a good way) and almost everything in the trailer happens within the first 1/2 hour so the trailer, unlike a lot of movies lately, doesn't ruin the movie at all.

I'm a huge Conan fan but I had my expectations lowered when I saw the trailer. To be fair, the movie had some good parts in it. Its truer to the source material than the original and they got the brutallity down right. Also the beginning scene with young Conan is good. In fact, the young Conan was way more interesting than older Conan.

The problem is that the movie moves sooooo fast. Its like edited by a guy with ADD. So all the fast pacing didn't allow you to know the characters. They all are like cardboard cutouts. There is also a lots of sloppy CGI too. There is one scene at the end (not really a spoiler) where Conan says goodby to someone; You can tell they filmed it in front of a green screen because the lighting was not matching.

And don't get me started on the fight scenes. All of them happen soo fast that you can't really savor the violence. They are all not staged very well so its sometimes hard to follow. The final fight scene was a total joke. I guess that's what completely ruined the movie for me.

Damn you xevious...

Johnny Got His Gun - After seeing some of the material in Metallica's One video for about a thousand years, and reading the book years ago, I finally saw the movie. It's very much a product of the time, an anti-war movie made during the final years of heavy US involvement in Vietnam. As such, it lacks nuance and frankly, comes across as naive. The notion of, "War is terrible" is nearly universal but the solution of, "We all just need to see how terrible it is." doesn't really cut the mustard.

EDIT - Just got halfway through The Deer Hunter before it got too stupid and I turned it off. No one in Hollywood knows a goddamn thing about war. Literally no one. Or if they do, they're too busy pandering to a captive audience that they don't want to offend said audience's sensibilities by presenting something challenging. Fucking waste of an hour and a half.
