I finally saw Rashomon by Kurosawa.  Worth a look if you haven't already seen it.

Also, The Burning a 80's slasher flick with George Costanza and the guy from Short Circuit.  Not very good, but better than Jason X.

rented the watchmen tonight, should have been called dont watch the watchmen. Thought this sucked bad.  Was really looking forward to it too but just didnt do it for me.  I think a movie just about rorshak would have been better.  He was the only character I liked in the movie. 

It just weighted itself down.  Which is I think what everyone said would happen if you tried to make it into a movie.  I never read the novel.


I never read it either but I could totally see it being better then the movie.  Lots of novels that turn into movies are like that.  There better as books then a movie.

I picked up the animated Green Lanter - First Flight the other night.  I had seen the first few minutes online and decided that it was probably gonna be pretty cool.  I've only made it a little ways into it so far and I like what they've done with the story.

Has anyone else picked this up?

Just got Blackadder Vol 1-5. Just recently watched a bunch of bad movies, Ice Breakers (horror/monster) a low budget movie where everybody dies off screen, The Boogeyman another horror/monster film with some violence, but no blood, guts or gore. I also bought Zapped, a movie starring Scott Baio that came out when I was a teen. I always wanted to the see the film and so when I saw it for 5$ I couldn't resist. I wish I had.

ZAPPED for $5!?!?! Where oh where can I find such a gem at this price?

Saw a couple flicks over the weekend......

Silent Running - A cult sci-fi film from the 70's.  Not too bad.

12 Rounds - A don't stop to take a breath action film starring classically trained thespian John Cena.  Silly but good fun.

My Bloody Valentine - Was only able to see it in 2D.  Better than the original.  Also featured what has to be the longest nude scene in cinema history.  This chick must have been bucka$$ naked for the entire day of shooting across 3 sets.  God Bless her.

Watched Coraline on Blu-Ray last night.

The video presentation was absolutely perfect and as pristine as it gets.
The story was pretty good too and draws you in the more you watch.
You can def see the Nightmare Before Xmas influence here.

My son begged me to take him to see this in the movies, I did and he cried towards the end, had to leave.  Not a movie for a 5 year old, just so you guys with kids know.  LOL.

Recently saw......

The Fury with Kirk Douglas.  Good movie with explosive ending (that they make sure you see from every possible camera angle).

Green Street Hooligans - Not usually my genre but an engaging movie nevertheless.

I was disappointed with Knowing.  It started reasonably well, but it kept on dragging itself further and further away from the right atmosphere.

Basket Case is an acceptable movie.  The more you learn about how it was made, it's a very impressive movie for being made on a shoestring.

Phenomena - Sound track was like nails on black board, but did have a prepubecent Jennifer Connelley.
Was this is the movie where she could communicate or control insects?
