I liked the second better than the third.

But I had a few people tell me the third was better than the first

Um...no?

Hmm, 1st was the best, 2nd was the worst, third was in the middle, in my opinion.

Ditto, seems to be the pattern for movie trilogies. I thought 2 was a good movie, but the other 2 were better. 2 also pulled the most epic cliffhanger in cinema history... or, at least, that I've seen.

I saw Batman Begins recently (like a week ago) and the Dark Knight today.  I actually was really worried they'd screw it up, but they actually presented Joker like he's really supposed to be, and Harvey Twoface.  I was very impressed.  So 4.5/5 for each, cuz both had a few things that ran a bit too long that you just wanted to say 'enough, already, get on with the cool stuff.'  But otherwise it was good.  (Now I know why friends are so psyched about the bike. ^.^)

I recently got Hancock (unrated [never prefer only PG-13 max and not look at a box to see it's rating.])  I tossed it into it's box after 5 minutes and sent it to a friend.

However, I picked up Iron Man to replace it, and was actually very impressed.  The beginning was a tad too messy (the jumping in the story.  It confused Dad), but otherwise fantastic.  I especially like his development of his suit.

The beginning makes much more sense in threaters, especially if you were looking foreward to it from the Previews. You were expecting him to give a demonstration about his newest weapons and then get blown up after the lecture. And I maybe spoiling something, but if you haven't seen it yet then you fall into the problem that I'm explaining. The fact that they started with the explosion and kidnapping caught everyone off gaurd. It waas such a mood swing, and it set the tone for this movie to have both epics action and a present humor underlining, as a Stark contrast to, let's say Emo-Spidey from Spiderman 3. After that point, it's pretty linear. Although, this was one of the movies that I like watching on DVD as well, considering some of the deleted seens answered my questions for me. "Did he fly halfway across the world in a cramped mechsuit?"

On top of that, for reasons previously mentioned in another thread, Rober Downey Jr. has awesome ability to act, and Stark seems like an ideal role for him.

If you have to ask me, I'd have to say that Ironman has been my favorite movie to come out of Marvel so far, and the tie in to the Avengers movie coming out in 2010 as me jumping up and down. Hopefully I can keep it up for a whole year... *Breaks out Pogostick*

Heh, I'm waiting on Wicked to come out in the same year.  It's been announced, but as far as I know, they haven't said who's playing in it.  I hope they get as much of the original cast as possible.  Idina Menzel (The Wicked Witch of the West [Elphaba]) and Rue McClanahan (Madame Morbel) have been on camera before, for sure. (Rent and Golden Girls.)

The Pirates of Penzance (1983)--

Kevin Kline's (The Pirate King) one of my favourite actors, and this just impresses me more.  (He was good in A Midsummer's Night Dream, too.  He does 'classics' well. [Pirates of Penzance is questionable on whether it's classical.  I think it is.)  He and George Rose (Major General Stanley) stole the show, as The Pirate King and the Major General tend to do.

The Seargant was so gay that it was rediculous to think that he wanted to marry Ruth (Angela Lansbury).  Nothing against gays, he was just very Jack from Will & Grace.

All in all, I'd give it a 4 out of 5.  Linda Rondstadt just ruined the role of Mabel, though the boy playing Frederic (Rex Smith) made up for her attrociousness some.

Just recently, I watched In the Name of the King for the first time.

I really liked it.

Jason Statham always does a good job in action roles.

Burt Reynolds was a surprise, but he did good.

The story was good, and it was put together well.


Also, in my drawing class, I saw Tron for the first time.

That was awesomeness.

Now, I am one of those whose first Tron experience was Kingdom Hearts 2.

And throughout the movie, I was realizing just how much they based that world off the movie.

They base every world strongly from every movie.

I enjoyed it.  Cuz like most writers, I would make concepts of characters whom I would then place in books/movies.  It gave you the chance to do just that.

So, I'd like to discuss a little bit about some movies that had commercials during the Super Bowl.

G. I. Joe - This looks like it has some good potential. Plus, Dennis Quaid. Come on. He's awesome.

Angels & Demons - I liked The Da Vinci Code. I like those kinds of movies, like National Treasure. So, I think I'll like it.

Transformers 2 - ...that's about all there is to say about it. I mean, it's Transformers. Two. Awesomeness.

Land of the Lost - My mom was surprised by that one. She remembers watching the show. It looks good.

I can't remember if there were any others. Let me know if I missed one.

The preview I caught during the Superbowl was awful cute, looks like another Pixar goodie.

Appaloosa - 4/5 stars

What can I say, I'm a sucker for a western, and an eight-gauge shotgun, and a gun fight where everyone can aim, and... ooh! Just rent it and watch it.

Here and I though 3:10 to Yuma was a rare case where they made a good modern western, and here they make another.

Bridge to Terabithia -- 1/5

I thought it was going to be an awesome movie based on two kids finding a hidden world.  (Maybe it's cliche, but the graphics were supposed to be good.)  But man was I wrong... the plot seemed to be missing a few things, too.  This movie probably should have been twice the length to explain what it needed to. (But then it would have been too long, because it would still be crap.)  It was worse than trying to understand Utena for the first time.  (Trust me, watch Utena: the Movie.  If you get it the first time, you're more intelligent than my most intelligent friends.)

Spoiler:

What was with the teacher taking him to the museum and taking him home?  What did that accomplish?  Couldn't they have used his mom, at least, or someone in the family that came to visit(if they wanted his parents to think he was dead, too) so he would have a decent reason to go other than 'oh, some lady I barely really know is taking me out for a day.'

I can't believe the killed off the little blonde girl.  I thought this was supposed to be a feel good movie.  I could have even tolerated it if they brought her back in their imaginations to be the queen of Terabithia, but they didn't.



It was a very depressing movie.  The ONLY thing good was the graphics...and it's not like they were AMAZINGLY good, they were just what's considered average now.

And I had such high hopes...

Because that would have indicated that they approved of the heretical notion that parents, not teachers, are the best people to take care of kids. Perish the thought!

And yet how many teachers nowadays have been proven to be child molestors if they get the chance? (Not a large percentage.  But I still wouldn't trust someone I barely knew with my child unless they'd be in a crowd the whole time [ie school (not that I ever plan to have children.  If there's one thing I can't stand more than people it's children.)])

Taken: 3 out of five

Had a nice intensity but not very not very original.

Ok. Three movies I saw over this weekend. Two are a few years old, but one just came out last year.

Shaun of the Dead

That movie was hilarious. That's about all I have to say about it.

That, and beating a zombie with a pool cue to the beat of Queen is awesome.

No Country for Old Men

Really good. Javier Bardem did that role great. Kind of reminded me of Anthony Hopkins doing Hannibal Lector.

Only problem I have is the ending. Bad ending.

V for Vendetta

It was pretty good. Hugo Weaving did great.

If I had read the comic, my opinion might be different. But, I haven't read it. Might eventually.

I am actually looking forward to Sacha Baron Cohen's next movie.  The title made me giggle:

Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt


They shortened it to Bruno...but the concept is the same.


Of course, I've yet to see Madagascar 2, but he interested me in that one, too.  (I've seen snippets of Julien in the new series of the penguins on Nick.)

As someone who has read the comic, I urge you to do the same. There are many differences between the comic and the movie (the ending, for one) and the tone of the book is almost entirely different, being a bit bleaker, but it truly is some of Alan Moore's best work. Give it a shot if you get the chance.

Speaking of Alan Moore, is anyone else excited about Watchmen?

I've recently heard that they've removed the Hollis scene (those of you who have read the book will know why this disappoints me) but I'm overall pleased with the casting and this Snyder fellow seems to have great respect for the original work, which is a plus. It probably won't be as good as the book (few movies are) but it will be nice to see such a lovingly done adaptation up on the big screen.

Look forward to it in about two weeks, and read the book in the meantime - it will make the experience so much more worth it, I promise.

I was stoked for the Watchmen movie, but yesterday I had a startling revelation while listening to The End is the Beginning Is the End by the Smashing Pumpkins.

Why is this important? Well, that song is the song that plays during the Watchmen Trailers. Good, right? Well, it was first released on the Soundtrack for BATMAN & ROBIN! (Shock!) On top of that, wikipedia says, "The Ozymandias costume, with its molded muscles and nipples, parodies the costumes in Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997)."

If Snyder is a fan of Batman And Robin, imagine what he could do to Watchmen?  Shocked

Oh, don't worry. I've planned on it. Once I get the time, money, and find it. Could probably get it through Amazon.
