Deadgirl - Well, that was different. I was having a hard time buying into the actions of everyone involved. Sure, some of it is plausible(I DO remember my teen years), but full suspension of common sense must be done in order to get anything out of this movie.
Plus, so many things go unexplained. Frustrating.

Watched two movies over the weekend:

The Day the Earth Stood Still (Keanu version) - terrible movie. the whole thing made no sense, and was just not well put together. The kid sucked. Poor Jennifer Connelly has let herself get so skinny. She's an OK actor, but has lost all her "presence", so to speak.

9 - I took my 8 year old to see this, after deciding he could handle it. I found it to be a movie with a lot of squandered potential, but still entertaining in the end. The visuals were well done, and the action sequences were pretty intense. I also liked that the girl puppet-thing, #7 (voiced by the aforementioned JC), was the best fighter of the lot. I'd like to see this world expanded upon. A series would be cool.

Watched Zack and Miri make a porno Sat. night. Nowhere near as funny as I was hoping for. Plus, the whole "let's be crude for the sake of being crude" thing just doesn't work for me(anymore?). Someone needs to tell Kevin Smith that crude does not equal funny. Then you have the uber-predictable ending.
blah

Finally saw X-Men: The Last Stand. Wow, that pretty much sucked. The writing alone was abysmal. So many contrived situations(Ice man vs. Fire man!). Plus a total lack of caring or emotion when there should have been a LOT, considering what happens. Ugh.

Slumdog Millionaire - It was alright I guess. A little more "gritty" than I was expecting, especially the first third or so in the slums.
Code:
I would have liked the end better if he hadn't won, but I understand why he did from a "fairy tale" perspective.
I was not impressed by the grown up Latikas acting, but everyone else was good. They needed to give us a bit more background on Salim, too, but it wasn't his story so I understand the lack thereof.
Not sure I'd call it best picture worthy.

The wife and I watched The Reader. Very much an overrated movie, I'd say. We get to see a lot of naked Kate, but for some reason it wasn't working for me. Probably because she was naked along side a freakin' 15 year old boy. Lucky bastard.
Anyway, the story just seemed to drag on, without any real emotional kick. It wasn't a bad movie. Just...slow.
2062  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: June 08, 2009, 11:59:41 AM
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - Good, fun movie. I liked it a lot.

Drag Me to Hell - I thought it was decent, but certainly not as amazing as everyone was making it out to be. Pretty basic horror film, really. Maybe I've just seen too many damn horror movies.

edit: oh yeah...I continue to watch BSG as well. I'm on season 3 now. Waiting for disc 2 to show up.

I quite liked LoI, especially the music.Still, it just didn't feel right. the levels felt empty and repetitive, with a lack of scope. Its like no one knows how to translate Castlevania into 3D. What I see in this video is the closest its come to what it should look like(and play) like.
2064  Media / General Games / Re: Castlevania - Lords of Shadow on: June 04, 2009, 01:14:09 PM
wow, this came out of nowhere. That damn trailer gave me shivers. It looks fantastic. I agree that it looks like a retro-fitted castlevania game, but that doesn't take away that it looks to be a great game.

whoa boy. Lets not get started on plants. One of my other main hobbies is nature photography, much of which comes from own garden. I have literally 1000's of plant pics(bugs and birds too!).
I AM wondering why your cherry tree is illegal, Tomara. Normally trees are banned from being planted due to being Uber messy, weak or invasive. hmmm.

Saw 2 movies over the weekend:
Let the Right One In - Too much geek community hype on this one. It was OK, but I was expecting better. I'll blame the subtitles.

Bolt - I actually kinda liked this. Disney CG has improved tremendously. Plus, none of the characters were stupidly annoying, like in most movies aimed at children. There was even a few unexpectedly "sweet" moments.

BTW, still watching Battlestar. I am on disc 3 of season 2.

Nan ran out and got Twilight from the Red Box early Sat. Morning. She read the books and wanted to see the movie. I wouldn't call it a good movie, but it wasn't horrible either. I'm actually curious enough o want to see the future movies.

I don't think I ever mentioned that my family went and saw Coraline in 3D. Very imagtinative movie. I liked it a lot. The 3D was implemented perfectly.

Saw 2 movies over the weekend

Igor - Talk about a let down. This looked as if it could have been fun and cool, but it was pretty much awful. so much potential squandered.

The Duchess - I kinda dig period movies like this, generally. Kiera was hot as always, although she still needs to spend more time at the buffet. Interesting story. Well done all around.

FWIW, my fave Pixar flick is The Incredibles. God, I love that movie. Wall-E up to when the first human speaks is #2.

I finally saw Iron Man yesterday. I liked it a lot, outside of the cliche villain

My son has been talking about Star Wars a lot lately, but had only ever seen the first movie. Yesterday we watched Empire together. Good stuff.

I saw Religulous Sat. night. "preaching to the choir" as it was, I definitely enjoyed it. Very funny throughout. Unfortunately, the people who should see this are the ones who won't go near it. Not that it would change any minds or anything. The massive amounts of editing that obviously took place was geared more for entertainment than persuasion.
