Deg, it's also insane. So insane, in fact, that I haven't seen a more insane film in my life. And plus
Code:
John Cusack plays a bad guy. With long hair. That's fucking wrong, that is.
But yeah, it is a great film.

And you probably watched it on Film4, didn't you? I saw the adverts for it on that, but only because I watched some of the Studio Ghibli films they were showing. But I guess that ain't really important.

Snakes on a Plane I saw last night.

Fun movie. It was very obvious that the actors were enjoying themselves. It was roughly what I expected it to be, which wasn't what I THOUGHT it was going to end up being at all.

I too saw Snakes on a Plane.  It's a fun romp and much better than I expected.

Not sure whether to post this at the anime/manga journal or here, but I think Howl's Moving Castle is technically a film. :P

Loved it. Not in the same way I loved the book because it didn't really feel like Jones' world. It was Miyazaki's reality, that's why I loved it so much.

Yeah, it looked like every Studio Ghibli film since 1985. But I think other films they've made, like say Princess Mononoke, are better because Miyazaki has made them up by himself - though often inspired by legends.

Princess Mononoke was great film. I love Miyazaki's affinity for dark, gooey thingies (whatever you want to call them)...but my favourite will always be Spirited Away.

Haven't watched a lot of Studio Ghibli films though, so that may be an overstatement. :P

Poseidon -  Not great but not bad.  I did see the original but I vaguely remember it so I can't really compare.  Well I can say that Kurt Russell is hotter than Ernest Borgnine.  

Hoot -  It was mediocre.  I'll stick to reading Hiassen's books.

Me neither - i've only seen 6. Of the ones I've seen, Princess  Mononoke is the best I think, but that may change if I ever see Spirited Away.

Only 6?  I think that's quite a big number.  Anyways, my favs are Whisper of the Heart, Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away.  I missed Castle in the Sky when it came on TCM, but I caught a majority of the rest.


I'm back on my foreign drama kick.  I tried watching Turn Left, Turn Right, but I got frustrated because they kept missing each other.  Yeah I know that is the whole premise, but when the crazy other suitors came in, I lost it.  I just skipped ahead to see the unbelievable ending.  It stared  Takeshi Kaneshiro, the Onimusha guy.  He's pretty cute.

S-Diary -  This is a Korean comedy about love and revenge.  It was actually really good.  It's about a woman who is dumped and goes to find her past loves to see if they ever loved her.  So the first half of the movie is about her memories about meeting and falling in love/lust with her first 3 loves.  Then she goes to see them and sees that most seemed to have been using her for sex or money so she wants compensation for lost time and money.  Well when they refuse, she gets back at them in funny ways.  Still after she gets revenge, she still feels crappy and realizes she never was herself when she was with them. She would always change herself to be the person they wanted.  I totally relate to that.  So the part that got me most was showing some of the memories from the guys.  They weren't all that bad and they really did care at one point in time.  Lord knows I only remember the bad stuff with most of them; perhaps I should try to remember the good stuff too.

Watched Snakes on a Plane today.

That was a fun movie to watch! I found it funny that the censorship board over here cut out some of the swearing words...will probably get the DVD when it's out. Samuel L. Jackson was hilarious.

Code:
The look on his face, especially whenever he was in the cockpit, was priceless.

A Perfect Match -  Yes, I watched another Korean romantic comedy.  This one was about a woman who works at a match-making serivce but can't find a match for herself.  Then she meets this client who is always late, and is basically a bad date for the people he is set up with.  Anyways, of course she falls for him.  Cute/funny stuff ensues.  The main couple had good chemistry and I found it easy to root for them.

Superman II - Wasn't sure if I'd actually seen this or not. Turned out that I had, but I remembered pretty much nothing of it. Anyway, it was pretty decent!

I just saw Snakes On a Plane with a few friends a couple hours ago.
I really enjoyed it, though, stereotype characters and all. Of course, two of my friends pissed me off due to them laughing at every single mother fucking (pun intended) moment of the film. I don't really see what's funny about Samuel L. Jackson tossing a Red Bull can onto a table, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

Saw Blade Runner for the first time. It was awesome. I especially enjoyed the (somewhat shallow) moral conflict, as well as the sense of busyness that nearly every scene conveyed. In the future, too much stuff is going on at once.

My main complaint is the narration. My God, Harrison Ford is just *readiing* it!

Shooichi- you should definitely try to see Blade Runner Director's Cut.  The director's cut omits the annoying narration and the ending is completely different.  I found the ending in "regular" Blade Runner a tad hokey while the Director's Cut ending was a sucker punch.  

Director's Cut= the better Blade Runner.
