I saw Hanna last night in theaters, it was exactly what I expected to be: low on plot, high on entertainment.

I just finished watching Burlesque. I thought it was really good.

I caught the beginning of Inglorious Basterds late last night on cable (missing the opening credits and maybe a few minutes) and stayed to the end. An odd alternate history. I liked it well enough but not so much that I regret not seeing it in the theater nor enough to get the DVD.

Double feature - "Paul" and "Hummer® Ninjas 5"

One happy ending plus. . . six more.

I watched Skyline, which was painful and embarrassing but with beautiful special effects derived from a dozen other alien invasion movies. Basically, I was entertained, but dying inside a little the whole time.

Then I watched the Toxic Avenger parts 1-4 and that made up for every other disappointment in life.

You're referring to Go Nagai, right? Probably the biggest name in the history of manga.

Yup! That he'd be involved in Toxie II is no surprise based on his own work. He and Troma seem to have complementary styles and tastes.

You mean totally sick and depraved, yet oddly more moral and heartfelt than the phony Logan's Run "decent" society that condemns them?

I watched a documentary called "What Are Dreams?"

It was really really interesting. It talked about theories and discoveries about why and how people and animals dream.

I bought a copy off Amazon when it went to DVD a few years ago.

I even pre-ordered it, which is something that I rarely do.

Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Probably one of the worst movies i've ever seen.

I tried watching this over this past weekend since it was making the rounds on HBO (I think--too many cable channels). I doubt that my inability to make sense of it and lack of interest after seeing a few minutes were due to my catching it in the middle of the movie. I cannot understand the sensation it made while it was in the theaters. Perhaps reading the graphic novel might help, but that merely points out another failure of the movie: it shouldn't be so reliant on outside knowledge.

Yeah I dug it too. First, I loved the comics, well before the movie. Second, so many great nods to video games in the movie.

It's certainly not for everyone though, very cult-ey.

I just watched Dark Portals ("Vidocq" is the French title). This was one of the first films using digital filming besides Attack of the Clones. Gerard Depardieu plays Vidocq, who I guess is like the French equivalent of Sherlock Holmes. This film totally surprised me as I had never heard of it. It's a lush, action packed, supernatural thriller along the lines of The 9th Gate with just stunning cinematography that manages to retain subtle artistry lost in the big Hollywood videogames explosions. Plus it's French, so it has the bonus of being really seedy and erotic. I enjoyed it a lot.

Jail Bait, the 1954 Ed Wood movie.

It was superb.

The title threw me. I thought it'd be a little more like a tawdry exploitation flick--considering this is the same guy who made Glen or Glenda just a year or so earlier.

It was still pretty entertaining.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.

It was OK. I'm not big fan of anime but even allowing for that I enjoyed it, enough that I may watch it again some time. The location choice of drugs may have influenced my perception and opinion though. I took a big dose of Epsom salts right before started watching it by myself in a charity hostel compared to The A-Team, which I saw while on IV morphine surrounded by competent medical professionals. I really doubt I'll be watching The A-Team again.

I was doing some channel-surfing and I happened upon "Jaws" just at the start of the scene where Quint (Robert Shaw) and Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) start comparing their various shark wounds over drinks, then Brody (Roy Scheider) notices the blurred tattoo on Quint's arm which launched Quint's story of surviving the sinking of the USS Indianapolis. The rest of the movie is "ehh" to OK, but this scene is gripping storytelling.

It IS that scene that sets up the darkness of the rest of the movie.
After hearing that tale, you are horrified. Chilled to the bone.
Makes the last 30 minutes that much more scarier.

I never could understand the Bond fandom. I did like Casino Royale, but i really couldn't get into any of the Bond flicks, no matter who played Bond.
