I think "weak gore flick" describes almost every single film Fulci made.  I'm not sure I've seen a film of his that I thought was above average.

People seem to like "the Beyond."  He didn't do Demons, did he?  Cause I liked that.

Love The Beyond.  Absolutely love Demons, but that wasn't him as far as I know.

Ehn, I thought the Beyond sucked.  Demons was directed by Lamberto Bava with a script by Dario Argento.  That move is great -- the sequels, not so much.

Men In Black 3 - Eh, it was okay. About as many jokes work as ones that don't. Some of the designs (the practical ones) looked good. Not as good as the first one, but far better than the sequel.

Well there is one movie I will be renting on Blu Ray instead of paying $10 to see it in theaters this summer.
Yeah, it's a rental, definitely. And don't see it in 3D. I can't beleive that would have helped it at all.

But it is better then number 2 right?  That one was so painful I regretted renting it.  I can't believe I paid the local rental store $4 to rent that piece of garbage.

Movie Mania!

Merril's Marauders - Sam Fuller directed this account of the attempts of the US Army to capture Burma in the Second World War after being driven out by the Japanese.  For a film made in 1961, it's pretty dark and fairly accurate in its portrayal of the brutal conditions that the marines undergo just to get to the fighting - typhus, malaria, starvation - and Fuller's ability with action is ever-present.  I'm not sure if it's quite as entertaining as another film on the subject, the earlier Errol Flynn-starrer Objective Burma! but it's a whole lot more credible.

Airport '77 - Thieves try to steal valuable artwork onboard a commercial airplane only for things to go wrong and the plane crash into the sea and sink to the depths.  Jack Lemmon stars as the captain tasked with rescuing everyone on board before they all drown.  A good cast - Christopher Lee, Joseph Cotten, James Stewart, and Olivia de Havilland - make the dumb stuff worth watching, which is more than can be said for...

The Concorde...Airport '79 - Which doesn't have a great cast - unless you count Robert Wagner and Sylvia Kristel as good - and is even more implausible than its predecessors.  Here, Robert Wagner is desperate to destroy an airplane which carries with it information that will implicate him in an illegal arms deal, so he employs a whole manner of tactics in the attempt.  Despite its silliness, it never approaches the kind of dumb fun that can be had with the rest of the series.

The non-preachy parts were good, the anti-establishment preachy bits were not, but overall an enjoyable movie if you like baseball.

Prometheus - Awesome.  I won't go into plot spoilers at all, but I will say it delivers a story in the Aliens-universe that's in keeping with the sinister, creepy tone of the best of the series.  The cast are excellent, especially Noomi Rapace (who goes through hell in the film) and Michael Fassbender, who is now the best android in the entire Aliens franchise.  The film is gorgeous too, with an eye for sweeping vistas that makes Peter Jackson look like an amateur.  There are a few story things I'm a little puzzled over, and I don't think half the cast are as well developed as they could be, but it's definitely a worthy follow-up to the Alien and Aliens films that we've all been waiting for.

Can't believe I didn't already have this classic in my collection!

As you can tell from my sig it was my favorite movie last year.  To me it had more of the old Jim Henson feel then any movie made since he died. It was really great seeing the Muppets up on the big screen.

I am surprised they haven't announced (unless I missed it) they are working on another Muppet movie already. It made a good amount of money.

They did say after the second weekend's box office take came in that a script for another movie was being worked on.  I have not heard anything else since.

They announced "The Muppets 2" a month or so back. The internet immediately started pleading that they give the new movie an ACTUAL title.

Jason Segel also said he wouldn't be back for the next one, and while I appreciated his contributions to the first (such as allowing it to happen in the first place), I have so much respect for his attitude of "I wanted to help bring the Muppets back, I did, my work here is done".

That is a really cool attitude for him to have. I did like his part of the movie much more than I thought I would, it still wasn't what I went to see.

If they keep Walter as a regular, we may get at least some mention of Segal's character.

Oh, and I really hope they keep 80s Robot! He was awesome!
