Sleeper.

Had a sudden urge to see it again, so I went and found it on Big Truck.

Saw Paul yesterday. Not as uproariously funny as I'd hoped it would be, but I liked it a lot! It's a movie that all nerds should see.

Paul was not as good as Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz but still pretty damn funny.

Agreed. I got a little tired of all the fart/penis/balls jokes, but what do you expect from a movie with Seth Rogan, albeit only his voice?

Batman Begins

The origin of Batman story has been done to death but this version was well done and quite entertaining.

I am currently watching Dog Soldiers. My roommate has watched very few movies, so I'm taking him on a crash course through all my favourite weird movies. Prior to this, I got him to watch Repo! the genetic opera

the movie sucks, BTW. avoid it.

The last new movie I saw was The King's Speech. Liked it, but it was kinda weird seeing Geoffrey Rush with short hair. (I've only ever seen him in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.)

Year of the Dog

Overall a sad and disturbing movie. The characters and story are pathetic and pointless, both to themselves and the viewer.

Surprisingly entertaining.

Do you generally like the kids flicks? I'm asking because if you don't like most kids flicks, then i probably wouldn't take your advice. :)

I like the Pixar stuff. and Shrek. I haven't seen Despicable Me (same producers as Hop) or Megamind. I usually like Disney movies.
I usually find kids movies ok, especially if it's kinda funny.
This movie took too many Christmas/Santa movie cliches and just made them into Easter.
did you know that the Easter Bunny delivers candy in a big eggshaped mechanical flying machine magically pulled by a flock of harnessed yellow chicks ?

I went in wanting to like it, but it just wasn't funny. To me.

of course, YMMV.
If you are accompanying kids, by all means, enjoy your popcorn.
Otherwise, wait for it to hit Netflix. It should be there by Halloween, at least.

I like Megamind but can take or leave Despicable Me. I'll probably wait for Netflix.

Just for kicks I watched The Running Man last night. My god, that movie was deliciously bad. I think my favorite part was at the end when Arnold & his sweetie walk off arm in arm, the crowd goes nuts -- and everybody is still living under a totalitarian regime.

I still think that it's so amazing that a studio would buy a Stephen King novel and use nothing but the title.

Toy Story 3

I also happened to catch Toy Story 2 for the song that I think of as Jessie's Lament. Man, those folks at Pixar really know how to tug at one's heart!

I've got a copy of TS3 on Blu-ray, but I've been waiting until I can get a larger HD set before I watch it.

I need to get The Incredibles, Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo on blu-ray as well. My DVDs for those are getting creaky. I don't care for Cars, so I'll leave that alone.

Toy Story 3
There was a Toy Story marathon of sorts on starz this weekend.
now see, THAT's a good movie, kids movie or not.
Pixar has set the bar so high that movies like HOP just die in the first half hour.

Just because Toy Story 3 (or any of Pixar's movies) is animated does NOT make it a kid's movie.

On the other hand, after watching TS3 it was somewhat surprising that it got a "G" rating. Apparently the folks at the MPAA did not bother to watch it before giving it this rating trusting the names of Disney and Pixar. In the trivia about TS3 at IMDB the chair of MPAA's Classification and Ratings Administration admitted as much during an interview, saying that TS3 should have gotten a "PG".

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

My wife is a fan of the books, so I get her the DVDs as gifts. I haven't read the books, but watch the movies with her.
Its pretty funny to watch the progression in the movies.
A lot has been made about how they've gotten darker, but I found this last one to also be very expressionistic, moody, disorientating and cheerless.

As a whole I think they are pretty well done.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.
