Lethal Weapon 2.

Hey, it was on, I was waiting for the wifey to return from yoga, and dinner was awaiting. So I just watched it.

It's ok. Mel Gibson was still cool then.

Is that the one where he drops off the pretty blonde at her place while making lovey dovey talk about living together - right after a helicopter ripped his trailer to shreds? When he finds her dead later, you're slapping your forehead about what an idiot he is.

I think that's "Payback" (although I've never seen it, it matches the cover on the VHS). Anyway, you guys are making me want to watch Die-Hard 3.

No, not Payback.

That's actually's not too bad.

Cheech & Chongs Next Movie.

I don't care how much time passes, this movie is still frickin hilarious!
Double feature - I watched both versions of Total Recall back to back. Now everything smells like cheese.
Laura, with Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb and Vincent Price.
The Amazing Spider-Man
She (1965).

I must have first seen this on TV around 1970 when I was 11 but haven't watched this movie since, though I recall it with some fondness. I happened to come across it about 10 minutes in while channel surfing and recorded it on my PVR for later.

Upon this viewing I found that the first hour--which consists mostly of the trip across the desert by the hero and his companions--drags a lot, perhaps believing that just the cinematics of the desert would be enough to carry the film (this movie having been made shortly after Lawrence of Arabia [1962]) which, of course, was a mistake.

The second hour takes place in the lost Egyptian city of Kuma which inconguously was protected by apparently Roman legionnaires. The origination of Kuma supposedly took place around 1000 BC.

On the other hand throughout Ursula Andress is stunningly beautiful in the role of Ayesha, She-who-must-be-obeyed, even though she is not seen in anything less revealing that a relatively shapeless Greek/Roman shift. I'll note that I liked her voice as well, but I've found via the movie's trivia that I never have actually heard Andress speak because for the three roles I most recall her playing in She, Doctor No (1962), and Casino Royale (1967), she was overdubbed by Nikki Van der Zyl (usually uncredited) because Andress' native Swiss-German accent was too heavy.

So...no, I do not recommend this movie though it is a relatively harmless 106 minutes of entertainment.

Is that the one where they step into the blue flame to become immortal ?
I remember seeing that movie when I was a little kid.
I think it was the last movie ever played at the Neon Theater before it closed forever.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

My almost eight-year old son had picked up the line "English K-niggetts" from a friend of his at school. He really didn't know what it was about, so I figured I'd show him the movie.
He is probably a few years to young for it still, but he enjoyed several scenes--especially anything with John Cleese's taunting French soldier.
I skipped the scene about castle Anthrax. The rest is pretty OK for him--sometimes talky, and then the crazy silly bloody violence.

My daughter (almost six) was totally lost--she was wondering if the Black Knight who loses all his limbs was "real", as well as the knight who gets his head removed by the rabbit.
She is actually very keen in most areas of comedy--she is a total clown and usually picks up humor very easily, but she was totally baffled by what she was seeing.


All in all it wasn't terribly inappropriate for them, but wasn't necessarily good for them either. I might pick up some of the television show episodes in a year or so and see if the short form sketches are easier for them to pick up Python humor.

I think they'd both like the Cheese Shop sketch too--but my daughter would keep asking of the parrot was "real" and if the proprietor of the cheese shop "really" gets shot.

"Confuse a cat"

I couldn't have been very old the first time I saw MP on PBS late at night.

Yes, basically--there are complications. :)

IIRC, "SHE" does a rapid-aging thing and dies looking like an unwrapped mummy, and "The Hero" becomes doomed to wait 10,000 years for her return ... or something ...

Am currently watching the direct-to-video release Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies. I know it's going to be chock full of anachronisms and factual errors, the biggest of which being that there were no reports of zombies during the Civil War, but I noticed right away that Lincoln goes from being a brown-eyed boy to a blue-eyed man. Can't wait for the blood & guts!

The Amazing Spider-Man

:spidey: :up:
Skyfall

It's quite different in that there are no grand world domination schemes, and it completes the prequel Bond movies.

The dogfight scenes were thrilling; the rest of the movie was meh.

It was on This TV last night. Pretty good wuxia genre film starring Jet Li.

The Train

1964 B/W Burt Lancaster movie about French resistance fighters trying to keep a train full of masterpieces from going to Germany. It was on TCM early this morning...I kept waking up and watching it and finally gave up and finished it. The sun was up by then.

One of the best Bond films to date. Javier Bardem once again shows his villain chops, turning in a far more nuanced bad guy performance than Anton Chigur in No Country For Old Men. Very likely the best Bond villain ever.

REALLY HEAVY SPOILERS. DON'T uncouth individual IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT AND LOOK ANYWAYS:
I absolutely loved the Aston Matin from Goldfinger making a reappearance. I loudly guffawed when, after M comments on its lack of comfort, Bond flips open the shifter knob, implying a sudden exit for M! I also really love the final scene with Ralph Fiennes as the new M and the return of Moneypenny.(I totally called the M part just after the character was introduced, but the Moneypenny thing was a total surprise.

I thought he was very over the top, I chuckled in almost every one of his scenes.

I was disappointed overall, no part lived up to the first half hour (the good part) of Quantum of Solace.
A car chase with an Aston and Alfas through the Alps was tons better than Bond playing Home Alone in Scotland.

Not a bad flick. Good eye candy.

Cabin in the Woods.

Loved it! What a great idea, but a note to future movie makers: you cannot "surprise" us with Sigorney Weaver if you've let us hear her voice first. Yes, I'm talking to you, too, Simon Pegg.

There was no "good part" to Quantum of Solace. It wasn't a terrible flick, but it really wasn't a great Bond movie.

Not a movie, but:
Pee Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special

IMHO: the Best Christmas special ever made.
Quite possibly the best one that will ever be made.
It's got Charo, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Little Richard, the Del Rubio Triplets, Cher, Magic Johnson, Oprah, Grace Jones--who could ask for more?

Yeah, I own that one. It's a classic. Nothing can beat the Stephen Colbert one with "Nutmeg" though.

It's funny, both my wife and I have seen all sorts of Pee Wee Herman things--his old HBO show as well as the movies and his Saturday morning show, a friend of ours was a huge fan--but neither of us had ever seen the Christmas Special.

I think it is more awesome now than it would have been if I saw it in '88.

Our daughter loves it. My wife got it at the library, and has gotten Pee Wee's playhouse dvds from the library in the past. And while my daughter (almost 6) loves watching it, she isn't getting even half the humor.

I love the fact that she keeps calling him "PeeWee Harris".
