just saw it and the first one was definitely more worthwhile. overall it get a "meh" rating on the RugbyD super-technical movie rating system. Door is wide open for a 3rd installment and it seems the series is taking the same disappointing trrack as the Matrix trilogy.
Action: Batman Begins (better than King Kong)
Comedy: 40 Year Old Virgin (sorry, I loved Wedding Crashers, but Steve Carell beat it out on originality).
Drama: Crash (but I didn't see Good Night and Good Luck yet, so it could change)
Horror: Land of the Dead (i'm partial to zombie movies, sorry saw II)
Thriller: A History of Violence (awesome)
I'm not sure how or why but Big Momma's House 2 was tops at the box office this weekend. But this was pretty much a weak weekend movie-wise and most of the other top draws have been out quite a while. I might watch BMH2 when it hits DVD... or maybe not. Didn't really care for the first one.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

It seriously has gained the worst reviews of 2006 so far, but it is January... which is traditionally the worst month of year for movie releases. All the good movies got pushed out before the end of the year to be considered for awards, so now all we're left with is complete garbage.
Have you seen promos for this "When A Stranger Calls" movie? Wow, could you really, possibly fit the biggest horror movie cliche into a two hour, teenage bore-fest? "We traced the call and it's coming from inside the house!"
Oh no! It's inside the house! Run!!!! This sounds like the worst movie ever... because it's not like they've never used the old "call is coming from inside the house" schtick on everything from the Scream movies, to Nickelodeon's "Are you Afraid of the Dark" to R. L. Stine's 36-page young adult "Goosebumps" books.
