Took a trip to the cinema. V for Vendetta was released in Malaysia today and my brother was sweet enough to buy a ticket for me.

I was really looking forward to this movie, although I thought it was going to be one of those films where my mind would wander during the boring scenes. Really wasn't. Loved the whole movie, didn't have a chance for idle thoughts.

Honestly, not sure if my other two siblings enjoyed it (I'm being called childish for liking it...). They said that it was good, not amazing. Eitherways, I feel like watching it again. Hugo Weaving did an excellent job as V. Portman pulled off a shaky British accent. Not much else to say. :P

Just came back from V for Vendetta. It's not the book by any means, but this is understandable considering it's a two hour movie compared to a 300 page graphic novel. I can also see why Alan Moore was so pissed off about it as they did really change the story quite a bit in many places. And it is most definitely trying to make a statement about our society:

Code:
Though the movie takes place in England, America is mentioned a few times since America is in the middle of another Civil War, which I thought was hilarious. Not because it seems absurd, though, because it almost seemed all too possible. There were some other references to current tensions like gay rights and the war on terror as well.


Basically I guess I can just sum it up by saying: It isn't the book (which I still prefer by a long shot), but the movie is pretty damn good.

EDITS: Holy crap I keep thinking of more things to say!

I've been watching more Firefly. I have one more show on disc three to watch. I like this show a lot. I'm gonna be sad when I'm all done with it.

Last night I watched The Italian Job. Blah. Ok movie, I guess, but only for the few action scenes. The rest of it was cliche and poorly scripted.

edit: the newer one, with a seriously NOT naked Charlize Theron.

Remake or original?

I've watched a few movies, but I've forgotten most of them! Here are the...four I remember:

- The Great Escape - Great movie. Can't believe it took me this long to see it.

- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - See above.

- The Hole - For some reason I've always liked this. It's genuinely creepy, and on the whole remains fairly original.

- 28 Days Later - Great as usual.

I too went to see V for Vendetta.  I liked the movie overall, but I just didn't really buy the love story.

Sword In The Moon

Very pretty too look at, with some great actions scenes, but characters and storytelling could've used a lot of work.

Dont worry, Raist.....you can always rewatch the series over and over as I have been doing. Oh and WATCH THE MOVIE......

....it feels like rolling in a bed of green grass on a warm summer day...and then when it's over you get all depressed and want to drink cause it's not around anymore......but you look over at your box set and dvd and put them back in the dvd player and stop drinking cause Mal appears on screen with his charming smile and says something ultra-witty.

Edit: oh and Nuri....YES OH GOD YES. Kate Beckinsale...you're so hot but have a terrible agent. FIRE HIM AND HIRE ME!

Me and a buddy of mine went in to see ' The Hills Have Eyes' this evening and it was a lot better than I was expecting. The movie basically kicks ass!
It was a MUCH better remake than Chainsaw Massacre IMO.

I re-watched my X2 DVD to help get me stoked for X-Men 3.

I really enjoyed the first two movies. Probably my favorite of all of the Marvel movies this far.

The Terminal - I've always thought it was a shame that this wasn't a lot better. The first hour is really good, it's just breezy fun, with Tom Hanks giving a really good comic performance. Then it just turns into an over the top sentimental boring piece of crap. OK, so that's maybe a little strong, but you get the idea :P

Broken Arrow - Decent action film, just the right amount of cheese. John Woo rules.
