Talk about your recently viewed movies here.  

---

I just came back from seeing Transformers today.  It completely exceeded all my expectations (which weren't super high since I'm not a Michael Bay fan and I'm a Transformers fanboy).  This reimagining of the classic franchise gets a thumbs up in my book.  Sure some things weren't "tr00" to the Transformers I grew up with, but as a reimagining of a classic concept for a new generation, it was terrific.  

The in-movie music was good, the transforming sequences were cool, and everyone was very well cast.  Shia was great as Sam.  

I liked that they gave Bumblebee some 'tude and loads of personality.  That first scene where he
Code:
completely destroys that VW bug Bobby Bolivia tried to sell Sam
was great.  

The action sequences were amazing and I liked that Michael Bay eased up on his trademark "shaky camera" techniques, which kinda make me seasick in other Michael Bay films.  

Film was fast paced, wall to wall action, and just loads of fun.  The little  
Code:
hacker bot that started life as a boombox in Air Force One
stole the show for a lot of the audience.

I still hold my opinion that Meat Loaf's "And I would do anything for love (but I won't do that)" music video is still the best thing Michael Bay ever directed.

Next weekend, I plan to see the Simpsons movie.  I have VERY high expectations for that since I've been a Simpsons fan from day one and still think it's the greatest TV show to have ever existed.

I have to admit when I first started watching Transformers I didn't like it too much, but then Optimus Prime showed up with his epic voice and his trademark quotes and the movie was a shoe in for awesomeness. Megatron vs. Optimus Prime was awesome.

The Simpsons movie was awesome. It was hilarious, well animated, hilarious, well directed, hilarious...did I mention hilarious? Anyone who says otherwise is fucking retarded.

Yeah, the Simpsons Movie for me, too. It was much, much better than I expected it to be, and managed to get a lot of laughs out of me. If you enjoy the Simpsons, you'll get a definate kick out of it.

I really can't wait to see how much money the movie makes, considering how much bloody advirtising was done to promote it.

I just got back from The Simpsons movie.

It was awful. Simply awful. I actually did not laugh once. One or two things raised a smile, but man...it was just bad. So, so disappointed. I actually wish I'd never seen it.

Finally saw 1408.

Pretty good, but not as scary as the short story.

Saw HP: Order of the Phoenix.

I enjoyed myself, inspite of the flaws:

Code:
Camera angles bugged me a bit for some reason. Sirius' death was kind of a dissapointment and some bits felt incomplete.


I guess it's expected though. OotP is one of the longest books and it must've been a challenge to compress all the events into a single movie.

In Pursuit of Happyness - Wonderful, wonderful movie that pulled at even my cold, dead heart strings.

I saw the Simpsons movie today.  It was good.  There were some parts that dragged, but the classic Simpsons humor was always around the corner.  

One thing still puzzles me, though.  
Code:
Whatever happened to Spiderpig?  Maybe we'll find out in the sequel.


Spiderpig reminded me of this comic book I read as a kid called Peter Porker, an anthropomorphic pig who becomes the spectacular Spiderham.

He's not Spiderpig anymore, he's Harry Plopper.

Yeah, but Spiderpig is a cooler name, and they have songs about him in the movie.  That
Code:
operatic version of the Spiderpig song
is awesome.  He will always be Spiderpig to me and my friends.  Let's just say the Spiderpig jokes, puns, and silliness were in full force when we went to a barbeque restaurant and ate pork ribs after the movie.

Saw "The King & I" (50's) last night. I usually watch the movie production of a theatre play I've seen, to make comparisons or recall the music.

This wasn't so bad. I felt like the theatre version was more powerful (theatre versions usually are) but besides that, everything was okay. Frankly, I think that the "King & I" should be re-done. It's not as charming to modern audiences as it was back when R&H first made it.

Haven't watched a full movie in a while, but I watched about half of "Fun With Dick & Jane" and "The Waterboy" the past few days.

The Bourne Ultimatum.

I know there's the big gripe about it not matching with the story of the books. Fuck off. The movies ruled.

Watched half of Team America earlier, and I'll probably watch the rest tomorrow.
