Also, The Incredibles. I just got back from seeing it 1 1/2 hrs ago - and it's incredible! The animation looks amazing and it has so many twists and turns, you never get bored. Also the soundtrack really blew me away. Sort of 60s jazzy with hints of the original Batman series. A great way to improve what otherwise would have been a fairly average night in.
I really liked The Incredibles too. Very fun movie.

I watched Something Wicked This Way Comes a few days ago. I just finished the book a few days back as well. I think I'd recommend the book first.

I saw Blade Trinity today. It was just okay. I haven't actually seen the second one, but I did see the first one a few years back. But it's not one I'd highly recommend.

Napoleon Dynamite takes place is the present-day. They're all just hopelessly backward and have awful taste. But the internet is available in that community (that wouldn't have happened until fairly recently), and the older uncle hopes for his glory days - which were not just a few years ago.

  When the uncle said that he met a girl online, I was thinking that he was referring to CompuServe or one of the old dial-up BBS that were around during the late 80s or early 90s.  The trapper keeper, clothes, slang, and overall feel led me to believe it was set when I was in school.
  Anyway...Yea, the movie did try a little too hard, but I still dug it.

Just saw A night at the Opera on DVD.Part of a five disc collection of their MGM work.One film that can be viewed over and over again and never fails to raise a chuckle.Remember there's no such thing as a sanity clause. ;D

I can't say anything good about Rocky IV. Well, it's good for a few laughs at the ending scene, I guess. It's not at all comparable to Rocky. No wonder you haven't wanted to see it... since you'd seen IV.

I love Rocky IV.

I love it because it's so absurd and ridiculous. I love Rocky's speech at the end of the fight because it's just so wrong and it's bascially a slap to Russia's face. I also love when he runs up the mountain and when he helps that Russian get his carraige out of the snow. The shot of Rocky crushing the Drago picture is classic as well. It's 100% Grade A cheese.

Interestingly enough, the current World Heavyweight champ IS Russian!

Errr Sid wasn't in the series or the films. It was Reg Varney.


The three films are part of a 2 disc set.

We finally got a quiet weekend (a rarity these days) and suprisingly enough we watched Starskey & Hutch.  While I was totally prepared to not like this movie.  (I don't like it when they remake tv shows into movies, especially when they turn dramas into comedies.)

Suprisingly this one was pretty funny as Ben Stiller and Luke Owens are always funny.  I even kinda liked Snoop Dog in this movie as Huggy Bear.

Yeah i enjoyed Starsky and Hutch too....Wilson and Stiller work well together and some nice cameo's too.

I watched "Frida" last night the story of Mexican artist "Frida Kahlo" an excellent film, warm yet also full of pathos, the scenes were Kahlo's paintings came to life were really well done, if you no nothing of this artist watch it, if you are familiar with this artist still watch it.

Geoffrey Rush was as always on top form as "Trotsky" and Alfred Molina as the Zapatist artist and serial philanderer Diego Rivera was amazing.

I also never realised how much of a good actor Salma Hayek was, this film truly threw the light on how much talent she has.

Starsky and Hutch wasn't that good. It had some good moments but all around most of it fell flat. It also seemed Ben Stiller was trying way too hard at times to be funny. Disappointing.

Ha... those On the buses films are great.. but sooooo cheap. The director didn't even bother to tell the bystanders not to look directly at the camera... that cheap ;D I was sad to read that Bob Grant had died...

Still..cheap as they were.. I think they were amongst Hammer Films bigest grossing movies  :o

Have you seen it before Masterchief?  If not, make sure you pay close attention during the opening scenes.

No, I've never seen it before. I'm going to watch it tonight and I'll be sure to pay attention in the opening scenes

Of Mice and Men (Gary Sinise and John Malkovich)

I love this film and the book. The film was almost exactly how I imagined the book to be.
