I watched Bowling for Columbine on Netflix last night.

I then found myself researching the Columbine Massacre, reading minute-by-minute accounts of it based on the FBI investigation. Quite horrifying, but fascinating at the same time.

I saw the Town the other night. Go see it, it was magnificent.

The Incredible Hulk, Norton version.

Pretty good, but I wouldn't say it was THAT much better than the Ang Lee version. It pretty much just picked up the story at the point the first movie left off and had better Hulk animation. Liked the Bill Bixby and Lou Feringno cameos.

He appears in the latest Hulk movie via a TV showing an episode of "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" (1969-1972) in which Bixby was the title character (i.e., the father) and which preceded his TV series "The Incredible Hulk" (1977-1982) in which he played Dr. Banner.

Ah, OK. I would call that a reference, not a cameo, though. An easter egg, if you will.

Loved that version. Mostly because Branagh made such an excellent Iago!

Went to The Social Network last night. Pretty decent film, almost made me feel sorry for the dude that is a billionaire... but not quite.

The movie is apparently not terribly accurate, however.

How about Branagh's Hamlet? I haven't seen that in a while....

More of a miniseries than a movie, I just saw "Tin Man."

I wish I could say "wow." I really do. Except for the ending, which felt like they got tired of producing the thing and said "fiddlesticks it, we're done!" I could.

Seriously, they really fell on their face with that ending. It's one of the worst cases of a great leadup to a dismal failure of an ending that I've ever seen.

The journey was quite good. The destination was full of sappy, happy ending for all, good-guys-don't-kill-bad-guys platitudes which were cut off so abruptly that I was sure there'd be something to wrap it up in the credits. There wasn't.

What about the massive, massive psychologist's bill that she's going to have to have after having the ancient witch commit atrocities using her body for sixteen years? I'm not sure I buy that Azkadellia was quite so well-adjusted after going through that experience.

And then they left a bunch unfinished. Was Glitch reunited with his brain? Was Azkadellia simply accepted by the kingdom again? What about Zero? Are the longcoats just going to accept that they're not NAZIs anymore? Where's the rest of the story, man?

I think they wanted to leave a door open for a sequel, but they didn't have any 'rasslers in it, so it didn't get made.

Frank Miller's The Spirit.

It was... not bad. But nowhere near Sin City or 300.

OZ? They didn't have to leave a door open. The sequels are already written.

Just saw AI again. But I swear that the dvd version left off some scenes that was in the theatrical release...while they where spending a couple of thousand years trapped in frozen water, didn't the teddy bear turn to David and say that he was running out of power and would have to shut down? I also remember details about the ship's lights cutting off.

The DVD had just a static scene with a voice-over.
Aw, he's no fun, he fell right over.

I remember that, I think.

Usually the dvd version has more stuff. I wonder if Steven is pulling another Lucas, like he did with ET.

We watched:

The Crazies
Creepshow (Not nearly as good as I remember. It's not scary and Stephen King is a wasteful actor.)
Return of the Living Dead 2
Survival of the Dead
Dawn of the Dead (Snyder)
Scanners (I'd never seen this one, and really liked it)

I think that's everything.
