Watched 'The Wrestler' yesterday. Thought it was pretty good, though depressing.

Saw Grease last night. The Newton-john, Travolta version.
Currently watching another Fawcett opus, Logan's Run (though she only had a supporting role).

RENEW!!! RENEW!!!
Now watching The Seven-Ups.

Classic crime drama. Always loved Roy Scheider.

You have HBO, too?

Oh, that's right, you're watching True Blood, right?

I'm in Taylor TX on a contact. I'm watching in the motel. Don't subscribe to HBO at home.

too bad. HBO is a good way to see a lot of movies you wouldn't give the money to rent, much less buy.

Bruno, it was no Borat but it had it's moments.

btw conner if you thought there was too much penis in watchmen i don't recommend you see bruno.

or alternately: sean, if you thought there was too much penis in your thread about a coworker saying somebody had a penis i don't recommend you see bruno.

it depends on your definition of too much penis, i'm not that squeamish about penis so i was far from offended, but others may disagree.

i will say there was a close up of a spinning wang, a la meatspin.com

I was surprised to find I really liked it. It had a real Pixar quality to it (not quite the depth of story, though). Was that the first movie out after Disney bought Pixar?

I just got back from seeing Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and i wasn't impressed.

I luv C. Ricci. I thought she stole the show in that last Adam's Family movie and now she's all growed up. :snif:

I saw 500 Days of Summer. Not bad, and very enjoyable acting all around.
Currently watching the original 'Airport' movie. Holy crap, I had no idea those Airplane spoofsters nailed it so well. And I've only seen the opening credits so far! I don't see how I'm supposed to keep a straight face through this.

Good Lord, Dean Martin. And Jacqueline Bisset, no less ... just watched the other day in Bullitt.

Man, this movie is so retro.

Just looked up the trivia for "Airport." Turns out Dean Martin, as part of his contract, negotiated 10% of the gate. He made seven million dollars -- in 1970 dollars! That's close to $40 million today. All for stumbling around drunk mumbling his lines.

The IMDB also says that Burt Lancaster had the same deal, but later called it the worst movie ever made. It is a real stinkeroo!

I've always wanted to see it, but haven't sat down to.

So. Is it mostly just porn for vigilantes?

What can I say without spoiling it...

Uhm... no... it's not about vigilantes... it's not about hunting down bad guys... it's very specific...

Watch it. It's good.
In the past few months I've seen X-Men 3, 17 Again, Harry Potter 6, The Watchmen, and rewatched Atonement (still made me want to cry this time around).

I enjoyed Harry Potter 6. It's about as good as the previous movies. It does its job of conveying the story and making it enjoyable without getting too bogged down by 1,000 pages worth of details.

I watched Changeling last night. I thought it was pretty good. I vaguely remember this film getting panned by some, so I was surprised how much I got into it (also, it's long). Even Jolie did a good job.

Also, I didn't know (until just now when I looked it up) that 'changeling' means "a child surreptitiously or unintentionally substituted for another."

Yeah, I always thought "Changling" had some sort of supernatural/mythical connotation.
I think there is a book, or fairytale, or something ...

I've been wanting to see Changeling because it has the Burn Notice guy in it. I've sold a couple of copies; I just need to remember to check the drama section for it for myself.

I'm still waiting for Watchmen to come in.

I can't stand Burn Notice (I think it's the voice-overs). He's good in Changeling, though.

Just watched Frost-Nixon. I thought it was pretty great. I was expecting it to be a bit slow (hello, Ron Howard) but I didn't find it boring at all.

I'm sure his descriptions of spycraft are mostly pure blatherskite (especially all the crap that they do with cellphones) but sometimes you say, hey, that could work....

I find it entertaining. I'm giving a copy of season two to my GF for her birthday.

I gave Burn Notice a second try, and found Michael Shanks and Tricia Helfer!
I kinda like it. I'm a Bruce Campbell fan, anyway.
Like a beach book, it's not really necessary to pay much attention, and if you miss an episode or two, you don't miss any big plot twist. I kinda like Royal Pains, too.
Just watched The Mist. Loved the novella, thought the movie was pretty good.

Director's Cut of Donnie Darko. I prefer the theatrical release.

I haven't seen the director's cut yet, but I loved the theatrical release, to the point where I wrote a 10ish page paper on it in college.

Was it clearer what happened in the director's cut?

Not really, no. More detail about the time travel book. Several additional scenes throughout. More references to (the real) Frank being Elizabeth's boyfriend, a plotline they removed from the theatrical release (IIRC).

It wasn't bad, I just felt the theatrical version was more succinct. Also, a horrible crime was committed--'Killing Moon' was removed from the opening sequence and placed later in the film.
