My problem is that not once did anyone say, "We're in".

I don't get Julia Robert's appeal.  I think she makes everything worse.

She makes me wanna go horseback riding though.

Huh. Ya know, Sarah Jessica Parker makes me want to kill horses.

Hero and the Terror is a fairly routine action film starring Chuck Norris as a policeman who captures a maniacal serial killer and goes after him again when the killer escapes.  Norris can't act for toffee, but I do enjoy 70s/80s New York in the movies - it looks so filthy - and there's one or two decent fight scenes.

Major Payne - Not funny.  Not at all funny.  Damon Wayans plays a nasally voiced killing machine in the US Army who gets discharged from the army and finds himself at a boarding school training kids in what I assume is the American version of the Army cadets.  Basically it rips the plot from Heartbreak Ridge, but is terrible.  The only good thing is the lovely Karyn Parsons (Hilary from the Fresh Prince), who plays the inexplicable love interest.

Daddy's Little Girls
- No, not a porn film, but my latest foray into the crazy crazy world of Tyler Perry.  This one benefits from two great leads - Idris Elba and Gabrielle Union.  Elba plays a mechanic who lives in the hood and has three young daughters.  When his mother in law dies, he has to fight over custody for his kids with his ex-wife, a borderline crazy lady who's boinking the local gang leader.  He enlists the help of high-class lawyer Union to fight for custody, but a romance develops between the two.  It's still a terrible film - the bad guys are all caricatures, laughably so - but the performances from the two leads almost manage to overcome the dozens of problems the film has.

Pumpkin
- Christina Ricci plays a rich sorority girl who in order to help her sorority win a competition, signs up to aid physically and mentally disabled athletes.  She gets Pumpkin, and although initially is repulsed by him, eventually become friends.  Though as their friendship deepens, it threatens both her lifestyle and standing within the sorority.  Pitched somewhere between drama and satire, it never gets the tone right at all, and ends up being confused and at times, just unpleasant.  It's also too long.

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon - Oh wow this was fantastic! I had heard nothing but good things about this one, and initially had passed up on it because I am not a huge fan of typical slashers. But this really was a whole new spin on things. I heard they want to make a sequel, and now I really want to see them do that.

The only issue I had was that the main reporter girl is particularly stupid, I was hoping for more intelligence from her. Hell, she even falls for picking one of the sabatoged weapons. Also, I was hoping he would explain, or at least hint at the reason for that particular mask when he is explaining everything else.

But definitely recommended.

Wrath of the Titans  - Exactly what I expected - brainless popcorn action flick, with some surprisingly great visuals when the action scenes weren't going full blast (Perseus' dream at the beginning, for instance.)  And while they still had some of the comedy attempts, they really toned that down this time around. Even the 3D was impressive in spots (this one was actually filmed in 3D, too.) Perfect riff fodder for sure, but a fun escape from the rain outside.

Watched TinTin last night.

Didn't know anything about this movie, I thought it was about Rin Tin Tin, had never heard of the TinTin novels.   Wondered why the dog was a white terrier and not a German Shepherd, now it makes sense.   Also had no idea it was motion capture, thought it was animated.  Until I saw Andy Serkis was involved.  He's awesome.

Really liked it.  Speilberg's the man.



Yeah i didn't know anything about TinTin either before watching the Blu Ray and it is now tied with the Muppets as my favorite movie of last year.  It was the most exciting movie I have seen in a while and it was really funny with out being dirty.  I think it had more of the Indiana Jones spirit then the last Indy movie.  That makes me think KOTCS's failure was down to Lucas and Ford not being up to the stunt work.  I love the way it just puts you right into the story and introduces the characters as the story unfolds,it has the best pacing of any adventure film I have seen in year it doesn't wast a frame of time.  I really can't wait to see what Jackson does with TinTin 2.
Fave Rifftrax:The Room Fave MST3K:Manos
Fave DW story of last year:TAP/TRF.  Fave classic series story:Inferno
Fave film of 2011:Tie The Muppets/Tintin
Fave iRiff group:One wall cinema
Fave movie:Citizen Kane.
Still stuck on dial up.
Ignore me or report me.

I saw Cabin in the Woods tonight.  I'd heard almost nothing plotwise regarding the film, and only seen the trailer once, so all I knew was that it was a horror movie with a twist.  It turns out to be pretty fun! The cast is great (Tripe, Amy Acker is in it) and it gets funnier as the utter silliness gets ramped up.  I've read some people comparing it to something like Scream and there are some elements to that, but unlike Scream, I just don't see how you could rip-off this one so easily.

I am so looking forward to that one.

Just watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Always a good watch especially on a rainy day.

When you say silliness do you mean ludecrous but still seriously intended set pieces or do you mean Tucker & Dale type shenanigans?

The latter.  It's very tongue in cheek.

I'm looking forward to seeing this, read an article about it.  Maybe Entertainment Weekly?  Sounds good.

Oh, I didn't realize that. Still looking forward to it, though.

And Tucker & Dale vs. Evil was AWESOME!
