Cloverfield.

This is a strange one.  On one hand, its definately a theater movie, because its just made for it.  Its also the first film in quite some time that actually had be at the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens, and thats quite something.

It was a tad short, and there really isn't alot of "story" to the movie.  It really makes you feel like your right in the middle of whats going on, and ill let you take that how you like.

I definitely recommend it, it was fun, and although the ending kinda leaves with a WTF THATS IT?  Thats kind of a good thing in this case.

I bought Casino Royale on Blu-Ray and, having never seen it before, was in for quite a treat. I really, really enjoyed it. Plenty of action, lots of twists and turns, and though it did slow down a bit towards the end, it finished with a satisfactory bang.

The one thing I didn't like:
Code: [Select]
James Bond does not fall in love. That's the number one rule for James Bond movies. I don't care that it was supposed to take place when he was a new 00 agent, the love plot slowed down the movie entirely too much. Sure, he's allowed to get the girl, but he can't fall in love.

does not fall in love after that point.

Casino Royale's story is the reason he doesn't let himself get close to anyone.

I also saw Cloverfield. Far exceeded my expectations. Movie flat out rocked.

I know. It just felt like the movie should have either a) ended in a very un-007 state, or b) gotten to the action faster.

Um, I know people prefer to forget that it existed, but remember On Her Majesty's Secret Service?

He gets bloody married, and is very much in love. George Lazenby also sucks.

Absolutely loved Cloverfield. Everything was perfect.

There were some people that got sick from the shaky camera and from sitting too close. I'd recommend sitting towards the back of the theater when seeing this.

And that's why George Lazenby was only in one Bond movie.

And I kind of agree that Bond shouldnt have fallen in love, but it was kind of necessary for it to be the "first" Bond flick.

Saw Terminator 3 tonight and honestly, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  Still would have prefered a little less tits and ass from my antagonist, but it wasn't nearly as terrible as Dead or Alive, my new gauge for horrible films.

Have to agree with you. DOA is possibly the worst film of this decade.

Yeah, Terminator 3 is actually quite decent. It probably has the best ending of the series as well. Plus I just love Arnie with an all-consuming passion <3

The worst film of the last decade for me? Dungeons and Dragons, by quite a margin. But it's so bad, that the film becomes so entertaining to watch :P

I wanted to see Cloverfield, but Nan had no interest in that so we saw Sweeney Todd.
It was quite bizarre, but entertaining as well. Everyone was good in it, the setting was fantastic, and story was just dark and goofy all at the same time. Nan and I agreed that we couldn't recommend it to anyone we know, but did enjoy it.

Also saw Black Sheep over the weekend. A horror movie about sheep gone nuts? Do I need to say any more? Along the lines of Peter Jacksons earlier work(Bad Taste, Dead Alive) but a little tamer. Bizarre fun.

...

Apparently, I really like the word bizarre.

I just got back from Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem.

It was absolutely fucking dire. Honestly, it makes the first one look like an Oscar-winner.

I recently saw The Prestige. As expected of a Nolan film, it blew my mind! On that note, I can't wait to see The Dark Knight!

I saw Sweeney Todd in theatres last week, and it was even more amazing than I expected it to be (I'm a big fan of Johnny Depp/Tim Burton team-ups).

That's just depressing to hear. The trailers looked good. :(
