Inglorious Basterds.

Brad Pitt just keeps getting better and better at his job. Myers' bit was cool, too.
Aw, he's no fun, he fell right over.

Pontypool. Really stick fiddling good.

Went to the theater and saw Despicable Me. Not too bad. Saw it with a couple of kids, so that helped a lot :)

It's not just a couple of minutes that had been cut and spliced back in. There are really important parts restored.

Yeah, extended is what I have.
I've never watched the bonus material though, just the movie.

I need to read the series again.

It's not even stuff that was cut. They went back to New Zealand and shot enough footage for a companion movie to each film. IIRC, the shortest extended-edition film is half an hour longer than the theatrical release.

Um, I believe they shot the material for the extended versions at the same time as they shot the rest. As I remember it, they were talking about the extended editions at the same time as the films were in the theatres.

THe part I remember most is the gifts of the elves, and the swan boat scene.
In the theater, you never know where their cloaks come from, or where Frodo gets the light of the star. They fill that in with a voice over in Shelob's lair scene.

Check out the bonus features on the disks. They went back.

Particularly vivid in my mind was the interview with Brad Dourif (Grima/Wormtongue) where described being thrilled to go back to New Zealand until he told his girlfriend. "Oh, no!" she told him. "You're not going to have to shave your eyebrows again, are you?"

As a matter of fact, yes. He did. :)

Well, they did regular reshoots - they weren't exclusively for the extended edition.

All in all, I think the extended versions have a lot better continuity, and make more sense.

I saw Salt last weekend, I dug it. Think a Bourne movie with Angelina as Matt Damon.

Also, definitely expect Salt 2: Electric Boogaloo or somesuch in a year.

I saw Salt. It was fun. That's about it.

How many people do you think she killed? The Woman thinks she was killing everybody, but I think she only killed the bad guys.

We watched a few today:

Terminator: Salvation
Brothers
The Machinist (very creepy)
Day of the Dead remake (What was the stick fiddling point? This movie barely resembled the original.)

Now I'm watching Fright Night.
