Green Mile
I don't really get sick of this movie.  What's there to say?  Touching and interesting story - and emotional when need be.  ...one thing that ALWAYS strikes me odd, but do you find the wardens of the green mile much too soft?  IMO, especially given the southern setting, especially given the times, and especially given their title; I don't find the movie is too realistic in terms of how generous and respectful they are to the death row inmates.  Nonetheless.  Love love.

I read the book before seeing the movie, and I seem to remember that they explain that by saying that both the guards and the prisoners knew that the prisoners were there to die.  That's pretty stressful, so they didn't give the prisoners crap unless they asked for it, and the prisoners knew it.

The Prestige
Came back to this one.  I love it.  I don't think I can get sick of the lore/setting of the film.  I love the victorian(?) setting amongst two rivaling magicians.  Of course, the film becomes a bit far-fetched; but I think Nolan re-wrote history in a clever way to make an engaging story.  And..c'mon... Tesla!  Fucken Bowie! xo - hottest old man ever.  C'mon guys, you must agree. ;P

Everybody <3s Bowie. :)  He's a cool guy.

Either way, that's a mighty cute photo. :)

Just saw the book of eli, it was pretty cool, felt like fallout 3 - the movie sometimes lol.

That is EXACTLY the impression the trailers gave me.  I plan to watch it as soon as I can find it in a Redbox.

Saw a documentary tonight called "Best Worst Movie," about the cast of the movie Troll 2 when it became a surprisingly popular cult hit 20 years after it was filmed.  Troll 2 is one of those movies that has been called "worst movie ever," and still has a number of rabid fans.  It's currently playing at the Tower Theater in Salt Lake City, and since Troll 2 was filmed in Utah, some people from the cast still live here, and go to the showings of the documentary.  It was totally worth seeing, although I wish I had seen Troll 2...

http://bestworstmovie.com/ has a listing of where and when it's playing.

Don't think I remembered to say that I saw Iron Man 2.  It was fun, and that's what I wanted it to be, so I'm happy. :)

Also, last weekend, bought Dogma and Dr. Strangelove.  Had seen the TV version of Dogma before, had never seen Strangelove.

Now I've watched Dr. Strangelove, and I am happy that I've finally found a Kubrick movie I like.  I've seen several others before now, but I've hated them all.

And I've seen the normal Dogma now, and I still like it, but it's crazy stuff.  Don't think I'd like other Kevin Smith movies, but I like this one.

Haha - funny what boredom can do for you. :)

Watched the entire series of Twin Peaks over the last few weeks.  Cool stuff, but the last episode is perhaps the most insane hour of TV I've ever seen.  As I would have expected from Lynch. :D  Gotta watch Fire Walk With Me still.

Saw How to Train Your Dragon (in 3D) this week.  Just as good as everyone lead me to believe it would be. :)

Also saw Alice in Wonderland recently, thought it was good stuff, but maybe not the most amazing thing ever.

Saw Sherlock Holmes, liked it.

Watched Tropic Thunder on DVD, which I saw in the theater.  Still liked it.

And as always, I've been watching TV series on DVD - The Muppet Show, Eerie Indiana, and Twin Peaks. :)

Just bought and started reading a book called "The Black Company," by Glen Cook.  It's a fantasy book that focuses on a mercenary company.  One of the quotes on the back says it's like a book about the Vietnam war on peyote.  So far, so good, but I'm not that far in.

I'm still on my Planet of the Apes kick - working my way through the TV series, and have been surprised by the quality.  It's pretty good stuff!
1902  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: January 31, 2010, 04:09:52 PM
I thought that didn't come out until next week...
1903  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: January 29, 2010, 06:47:20 PM
Finished off the Planet of the Apes series.  Planning to buy Zombieland next week when it comes out.

Spent a fair amount of time last weekend re-watching the Planet of the Apes series.  Can't remember right now if I got through 3 or 4.  Still got the TV series to go when I'm done, though. :D

(Have I mentioned that I have terrible taste?  At least I don't like the remake!)
1905  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long do you play games a day? on: January 25, 2010, 10:10:05 AM
Depends on the day of the week.  I travel, so I'm only home three days a week.  I wake up before my wife those days, though, and play between 2 and 4 hours until she does.  It's my only home console time.  I generally play some casual stuff on my iPod Touch while I'm waiting for things later in the day - like if I order takeout and it's not ready yet - but not hours and hours.  During the week while I'm away from home, I probably put in another 1 or 2 hours on portable platforms (again, these days it's mostly my iPod, although I've been hitting Torchlight on PC lately too) while I'm sitting around the hotel at night with nothing to do.  Sounds glamorous, no?

It's fairly likely that I play games more than I should, but I realized that a long time ago and decided that since there's no way I was going to change that, I might as well use it.  That's why I write about games for this site, and for another before I started here.  I've got just as much social life as I want, but I'm 34, so I'm probably not looking for the same level of social life you would be.
