And for the life of me, I can't figure out why there was so much antipathy in regards to it.

The script was a bit weak, but the acting was excellent. The FX didn't dominate the movie. Was it great? No, but it was very enjoyable. I loved the tribute to Harold Ramis, and the cameos from some of the actors from the original movie. I was well and truly entertained.

Again, no clue, other than pure piss-headedness, why this movie generated so much hatred towards one of the actors. She did a wonderful job.. they all did.

I have seen THE HURT LOCKER.

It wasn't unique, the storyline predictable, and the acting was meh ok. Why this bouncing, bobbling, rather strained movie won for best picture is beyond me. It was nothing special at all, unlike other 'sleeper movies' that took the Oscar.

Oh well.

Started off pretty good.

Meegan and I went to see "Julia & Julie". It was a fun movie. No deep politically statements (except the historically accurate depiction of Paul being hauled up before a McCarthy panel and interrogated), just good entertainment.

We headed to the shops for Meegan to pick something up, and while we were in the pedestrian right of way crosswalk, some asshat in a ute decided to try to back up over us. Anyone who knows me knows I can be heard. I yelled "OY! What the hell are you doing!!??"

Meegan and I continue along the pedestrian area, and the bozo gets out of his truck, and starts lipping off at me, about how what did we expect walking behind his truck , because I had whipped out my phone, and snapped a picture of his truck and license plate.



"We were in the pedestrian right of way area, you twit!" The people who saw the whole thing started laughing at him.

What he doesn't know, is the camera on the phone isn't all that great, and all I got was a blurry company logo, and that his truck is #5 in their fleet. If anyone local to me can puzzle out that logo on the left side of tailgate, let me know.

Wow. This was an excellent movie )

I could go on and on, but don't want to do a synopsis. This was an excellent movie. Definitely worth seeing again.

And on a political side: Should I hear or read any more blather about Obama indoctrinating kids by telling them to "set goals, study hard and stay in school", I suggest they watch the first 20 minutes of this movie. That is indoctrinating children, not Obama encouraging kids.

Eyes are better, but still a bit twitchy. Last thing I need is a dose of pollen and fine dust.

Star Trek 11, that movie just rocked the house! )

SciFi Channel original movie. Jurassic Park + Amelia Earhardt + Pitch Black + a pinch of WW2 = Warbirds 2008.

I would have to call it a "Good bad movie", as most of the acting is cheesy (the tossing about of words like Japs, Tojo etc etc), and there is only one type of boring flying dinosaur.

It was good to do a "MST3K" while watching it with friends.

But I do wonder how all these female pilots, out on an uncharted island, in harsh jungle conditions, keep their ruby red lipstick, and don't even chip a nail, after a few days. But I do like how the "Skipper" saves the Colonels' butt on more than one occasion.

On the advice of shadoutcarver, I am watching Hot Fuzz.

My only question is how the hell did Simon Pegg (Officer Angel) manage to keep a straight face?

The first AvP was good.. yeah yeah, I know, totally unreal fight scenes (if anyone has been tossed into stone pillar with that much force, she/he would have done more than grunted and get back up. Busted ribs, ruptured spleen, possible broken back, but hey, I am willing to suspend some disbelief!)and now, the rest of the story )

Don't want to spoil too much, but overall... meh. Even for diehard evil space critter lovers. I will say the new 'queen' is cool. Looks like combo of Alien and Predator. Too bad that is the end of what was ok-ish.
