Today I watched Spawn. I used to like this movie when I was in 5th or 6th grade. But watching it again made me want to puke. God, this movie sucks. Clown is just so damn annoying. He's the worst part really. Even worse than the crappy Doom type effects. Sure, Spawn looks awesome when he's covering up his ugly, burnt face, but this movie sucks. I think I actually like Batman & Robin more. Guess I'm selling my Blu-Ray.

Man, I just watched that too. I had no idea it was going to be that bad.
Yeah. And oh so riffable.

Man, I could see that wink and nudge.

Dark Knight rises.  Once again Nolan does a great job of working within a genre and all of its tools while trying to "lift" it into becoming something more.  Doesn't always succeed,  there are some stumbles but the point is that he's trying.
Thoroughly satisfied with the ending.  Don't need to see anymore of the Bale/Nolan Batman.

About Last Night

Not terribly good.  Quite boring.  Roger Ebert seems to love it (or loved it when he reviewed it back in the 80's), praising that it was an emotionally true and sometimes painful story, but while I can some of what he is saying (despite my dislike of it, it does have a few effective moments) the characters aren't terribly interesting enough to invest enough emotion into.  It was based on a one act play by David Mamet, so I'm curious about the occasionally engaging dialogue (I kind of like the opening monologue, despite being delivered by James Belushi) and the occasionally bad dialogue and which Mamet might have been responsible for (since he's been guilty of both).  The biggest crime of the movie is the incredibly 80's use of pop song montages.  There's a lot of them and they feel like they belong in a romantic comedy, not a drama about people screwing up their relationships.

Short story: not entirely without merits, but still not good.

Watching the movie Screwballs right now. I just realized... this movie stars RANGER GORD! Hole shit! The main character Rick is played by Peter Keleghan, who was Ranger Gord on The Red Green Show. He's hilarious!

Only about five minutes into the movie, though. I'm not expecting much from it, although the nudity already is nice. And it does seem to have the good sense to not take itself very seriously. How many high schools have the nurses office do breast exams for teenage girls?

EDIT: The principle looks a lot like Dr. Forrester (without the green labcoat, or white streaks).

Saw The Lorax.  Not without charm, but probably the weakest animated Dr Seuss film I've seen.

The Dark Knight Rises. I really liked it, but I fear that a lot of the negative reactions are completely unwarranted and has more to do with the film being more drama and character oriented and less action-driven. I think there was very little CGI in that entire film, but what's important is that the whole movie felt real and sucked me in from the beginning, and it takes more than a good film to do that for me.

Finishe Screwballs. It was enjoyable for the lightweight 80s titfest comedy that it was. The comedy was lame, but charmingly silly, and the nudity was good and plentiful. That, and it starred RANGER GORD and the Principal hilariously looked like Dr. Forrester.

Screwballs is basically Benny Hill in high school. I'm serious when I say.. God bless that movie for having so many gals in garters.

No.  Inception is much better.

Safety Not Guaranteed - a low budget comedy with Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass.  Great movie, funny but also touching with great characters.

I've been wanting to see it ever since I saw the trailer. I adore Aubrey Plaza, and I also dig Jake Johnson. He's great on New Girl.

Penelope

Found it going through a bunch of old tapes.  Taped it off Starz during a free preview and forgot about it.

Anyway, cute movie.  A young woman is born with the face of a pig and must find the one who will love her faithfully to break the curse.  Of course all the suitors she has met face to face run away in horror.

Lots of familiar faces, an adorable James McAvoy, before he hit it big.  And Reece Witherspoon.  And hey, that's Russell Brand!  And Peter Dinkladge!  And that dude from Rome, the cute redhead.  God, I love redheads....

I saw The Dark Knight Rises last night. I'll post my thought in the movie's thread.

I watched Yojimbo today. It's my first Kurosawa movie (yeah I know, I haven't seen Seven Samurai yet). It's enjoyable but it's also too long. I liked it though.

That's the one A Fistful of Dollars is based on, right? I liked it too, but it does drag in the middle.
