Watched Sherlock Holmes 2.... I loved every minute of it. x)

I just can't get myself to have any interest in these movies. The whole Sherlock Holmes as an action/adventure hero really turns me off. Plus, I can't stand RDjr doing an English accent. I'd rather have a true Englishman doing it. I really need to watch the new Holmes tv show.

For what it was worth, I love the wit.  RDJ does a great Sherlock and the action isn't that big a component of the overall scheme of things.  I think they hit a better mark with the second film anyway, one of the rare cases where the second flick impressed me more than the first.

Re: Star Trek 2009 - It was the best damn Star Wars movie I had ever seen. I'd say I'm a Trekkie (sort of, the word seems to have been twisted so that it only applies to the obsessed), and in order to describe how I felt about ST2009, it would be like if you bought a Final Fantasy game and ended up getting an Elder Scrolls game. Nice and all, but it's not really what I was looking for.

Also just taking the film on it's own, I felt it was a pretty standard sci-fi action/adventure fare, though I understand why it had to be that way given the kind of crap the franchise went through in its later years before that film. It's better than all 4 TNG movies, that's for sure.

Now is it me or did Kirk...

Code:
... get beat up a lot in the movie? he seemed to be taking punches all around!

At any rate, I'm also excited for the next film.

Probably pathos for all the ass-beatings he would end up handing out in the future. Erm, alternate future.

Also, obligatory link to awesome lizard-man fight.

Anyway, just finished Kung Fu Panda 2 a while ago. It was quite good but I think I liked the first one better. Gary Oldman was really good too.

You just gotta love the amount of passion the man puts into his work.

Interesting that they would choose to release it in the Winter. Maybe Avatar has something to do with that.

I'm going to love this, but I sort of think the dwarves look a bit goofy. Too much like the 7 dwarves from snow white.

I think they look pretty much how Gimli looked in the LOTR movies. Only thing that would make me think of Snow White is how they have those cutesy names.

They're a little more cartoony, but I guess it fits their adventure

I watched Twilight Eclipse again with my girlfriend because her friends want to see the new one and she never watched the last movie. We watched it with Rifftrax though so that I could actually stomach it. Rifftrax was made for the Twilight movies and I cannot seriously recommend watching them all with Rifftrax enough.

Rifftrax is damn awesome but I don't have a good sound system to use over the TV.

Is there another alternative?

Oh my sweet fuck....  I watched the movie Drive (logo is hot pink, heh :/ ), and I think my jaw hit the floor on five separate occasions.  Simple, but great story, wonderful, but non-complicated, cinematography, and the very 80's, but non-80's era, soundtrack was really cool.  This movie is awesome, but a tough baby to recommend.  But I do really recommend it for something different, and surprisingly and disturbingly brutal.  It's a slow build, but big finish.

I love this film. The more I think about it, the more I want to see it again!

That was almost painful to watch. :P

Your Highness - I'm not sure this is really even worth a review, but I can't help it. I don't know if they were trying to do a rated R Princess Bride or something, but it failed miserably. All the language and crudeness just feels so out of place and shoe-horned in. It's like they filmed it to be a "nicer" movie, then went back and added in the rated R stuff. The plot is a typical save the princess type thing, with Zooey Deschanel playing the princess to be saved. Now, I would happily go save Zooey from pretty much anything, but being in this movie would be the first thing.
I think the core of the badness of this movie is Danny McBride. He is one strange fellow. Rather odd looking, although I get the impression he thinks he's terribly handsome. He seems to revel in all the low brow humor as if he wrote it. Oh wait. He did. I can appreciate crude humor, but the stuff here just isn't funny. It doesn't help that James Franco is totally phoning it in.
One bright spot is Natalie Portman looking awesomely hot as some medieval archer woman. Too bad the rest of the movie carries her down with it.

Watched Eragon the other day. Good thing I had read the book, or I wouldn't have been able to follow very easily.  They skipped forward through things mighty quickly.

Tonight, I saw Journey to the Center of the Earth - the 1950s version.  It's pretty decent, but dang, that main guy is a huge jerk.  Can't understand why the lady fell for him in the end.  It had a bonus feature showing the various transfers they've made of it over the years.  Pretty amazing to see how the quality has improved as it's progressed through various media.

Scanned the posts, didn't see much chatter about Hugo. I just saw this tonight and sweet lordy, is it good.

So good that I got off my butt and wrote a blog entry about how we learn through pop culture. References, allusion, homage, whatever you want to call it.

http://gameosaurus.com/roahr/2011/12/on-learning-from-secondary-sources/

Anyway, I loved this film and it's like the only time I felt comfortable with 3D usage. Even Coraline, a favorite film of mine, I enjoy more in 2D.
