I noticed Journey To The West at the store this week and decided to give it a shot, because it's the latest movie by Stephen Chow, who made Kung Fu Hustle, which I love.  This one is an adaptation of a classic Chinese book (first published in 1592, so pretty freaking classic), and it's about a young monk who is trying to help people by vanquishing demons.  However, he doesn't want to beat the demons into submission, the way other demon hunters do, but rather remind them of the good in them from back when they were people.  Dangerous methods, but luckily, there is a female demon hunter who saves him (whether he likes it or not) by kicking demon butt when things don't work his way.

I didn't love it as much as Kung Fu Hustle, but it's still quite good.

In lieu of band practice, we all went to see X-men: Days of Future Past for my drummer's birthday. 

It was fantastic.  And I agree, I wanted more Quicksilver.  The best scene was
Code:
Quicksilver going nuts in the Pentagon's galley.  We were all laughing hysterically.

O_o Did you start talking about a different movie in the middle of that paragraph? Because early Dragonball sounds more like Journey to the West than that adaptation if you didn't.

Nope, that's all about the same movie.  It's a pretty loose, comedic adaptation.

Code:
If I read the wikipedia article correctly, I'd guess this works as a prequel to the novel, because he's all alone until the very end.

I also was pleasantly surprised that Quicksilver was so entertaining. Never gave a rats ass about him in the comics:/ Great movie as well.

I was pretty disappointed with Maleficent. I thought they were going for sympathetic villain, and instead they went all the way to misrepresented/unknown hero. Just didn't really work for me.

I actually liked the first half, because they progressed logically from what happened in the first movie.

Then halfway through, it all turned to crap.

I saw Oculus tonight. It was pretty good. Not amazing, but solid and enjoyable.

The beginning of Star Trek:ID is so terrible I can't believe it. I don't even have the internet endurance to discuss it.

The parts of the movie that ruled: Cumberbatch, special effects (but too many hull breaches and people getting sucked out into space. seriously they lost 1/2 their crew to hull breaches and falling to their death when the gravity failed but nobody gave a shit), Karl Urban as Bones


The new design for Enterprise is ugly as fuck. I still hate it.

Watched through all of the Godzilla movies I own over the weekend. Always fun to watch the King of Monsters wreck some havoc.

Finally got to X-men over the weekend. I agree with all of you, I wanted more Quicksilver. I liked the movie alot, but I thought the resolution was a little bit too easy and I am kind of annoyed at how this makes anything other than this and First Class completely obsolete now.

Considering that this and First Class were the two best X-men movies, I'm okay with cutting those losses and retconning.  Hey, it's not like comic books don't retcon all the freaking time, right?
