sucked.


Was it that bad though? I would think just the fact that this is a movie about Spiderman makes it at least a 5 or 6 in my case.

I caught Spider-Man 3 on Monday night. I give it a 7.5/10. I'm pretty easy to please at the box office, though. It was a change of pace from Spidey 1 & 2, but to me, 2 was a change of pace from 1 as well. There's not enough Venom in the movie given how badass he is, but the CGI on he and Sandman is done perfectly. The problem you run into with multiple villains is that rarely do they ever get enough screen time. I think had they just canned Sandman and made it all about Venom, it could've been better. There were some moments I could've done without (Harry and MJ doing the twist?), but overall I think it was a good movie, and entertained me just as much as Spider-Man 1 & 2 each did.

Anybody seen Fracture yet? That's one I'm looking forward to.

I woke up around 5:00am this morning and couldn't fall back asleep... so I popped in "The Hills Have Eyes"... I bought it for $5 at the movie store about a month back.

I gotta give it a 9/10. ;-D Here's why-

The director of this movie (whoever he/she is) knows how to make a horror movie effective. In the beginning of the film, we are presented with a large extended family on a road trip. All of these characters are very likable, even the dad who is a bit of a jerk. We're given about a half hour to get to know them and follow them on their journey... all the while getting clues that something is not quite right.

Then comes the inevitable scene where the nice family becomes aware of the enemies, the "no turning back scene". I watched this 20 minute scene literally slack-jawed the entire time. Gruesome, horrible, thrilling. You have to care about the characters to care when they die. And these characters really, really die. X-I

If you like horror films, I would whole-heartedly recommend this one. ;-D ;-D

BOOOOOOOO! Both those movies are classics. :-)

I saw Casino Royale (finally) the other night. Solid movie. I can't remember the last time I watched a Bond film and thought it was good enough that I'd watch it again. 8.5/10

Fracture: 7/10 Pretty good movie that keeps you guessing. Not anything too special, but definitely not a waste of time either.

Blood Diamond: 8.5/10 I loved this movie. I had avoided it for a long time because it looked boring, but it was awesome. Great story, great acting. I'd highly recommend it. ;-D

Half Nelson: 7/10 This was definitely an indie movie, but it was still pretty good. It had it's share of twists but the ending left me wanting some answers.

I love good horror movies. The premise was excellent but the storyline, characters and everything else was subpar. It was enjoyable but I think it could have been a lot better.

Have you no sense of humor??? Conan the Librarian is about the funniest thing ever put on celluloid.

"Don't you know the Dewey Decimal system?" Priceless.

"Today, we are going to teach poodles how to fly. Are you ready Fifi. <tosses dog out window> Aw maaaannn..." Second to nothing.

And how can you look past what is quite possibly the funniest one-word sentence ever uttered since the beginning of stage:

"Sup-plies!" :-D

And even if all of that doesn't work for you, it has Kramer before he was Kramer.

Just saw The Salton Sea with Val Kilmer. Often, I have a hard time deciding whether I like Val Kilmer or not. With every strong outing, he has a really crappy one. This is the former, not the latter. His character dives deep into the meth culture in order to avenge the murder of his wife. I'm not really feeling like giving a full review here, but it was one of the more disturbing films I've seen a while. Not gory, just Vincent D'onofrio. Trust me when I say, Vincent's character "poohbear" is easily one of the most insane characters I've ever seen in cinema. To put it mildly, he's a drug pusher who's done so much smack, they had to cut his nose off. I think it's safe to say, they may have cut off part of his frontal lobe.
