Not something I ever expected to read at the Cafe. :-D

I barely remember that TV movie but I'm thinking it was not very good.


Oh it is a classic, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119781/

But they are giving Nick Fury his own movie now. And I am wondering if Jackson will get the role...

Best superhero movie I have seen, better than all the Spidermans and recent Superman and Daredevil etc...

I dont know if it will keep up with Dark Knight though...



I don't think it will be able to. The newest Dark Knight trailer is amazing. :-L

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Iron Man - 9/10

Blows away every other superhero/comic movie ever done, with the possible exception of Batman Begins (I'd put them both fairly closer together).

A little light on the action, but the backstory had to be set and it was set exceptionally well. Would be nice to see a balls to the wall type of flick for a sequel.


Also, very much looking forward to the "Avenger Initiative".
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

Iron Man 9/10
Enjoyed it a lot, no complaints.

Harold & Kumar Escape from G.B. 7/10
A lot of racist jokes, I liked it but not as much as the first one.

Traffic arrived today via Netflix. I plan on that being my study break later tonight, I'll be back with a review later on.


On an unrelated note, with all these positive responses to Ironman, I may have to check it out. Perhaps a double dip of Ironman and Indiana Jones. ;-D

7/10

Not Eastwoods best work, but still good.
Favourite bits.......

When he says the woman from the mayors office is going to put on a show with a shetland pony. :-D

And:
"Here's a seven point suppository"
"What did you say?"
"I said stick it in your a__"

Next up........... Magnum Force (again :-D )


Magnum Force
8.5/10

Quote from my g/f..........." I have work to do, but I can't stop watching this" :-D ;-D

The film-makers try and make Harry seem a little more sympathetic, giving him friends and a not-so-sexy girlfriend. Also making him weaponless in the climactic scene.
But this film is very very entertaining.

Good acting from Hal Holbrook as a snivelling and hate-filled Lt. Briggs. One of those movie bad guys that is "hate at first sight".

Favourite parts:

Having a pimp in full 1970s pimp regalia doing a stereotypical "b___ where's my money?" act before it was a cliche.

The car chase scene.

And:

"If the rest of you could shoot like those guys, I wouldn't care if the whole department was queer"

Next up............Dirty Harry (again)
(Spolier Alert - The ranking will probably be 10/10).

I watched Weirdsville. Had never heard of it before renting it, small budget Canadian flick that was shown at the Toronto film festival last year or something. It had Wes Bentley from American Beauty and that's what caught my attention. I give it a 6/10 overall but there are some really great scenes. If you're looking for a comedy and enjoy quirky humor it is definitely worth seeing.

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
