What if you already had an appreciation for her tits?

it's depressing, but if it makes you feel any better it's becoming increasingly clear that hollywood's blockbuster financing model is on the verge of collapse ... the number of flops this summer has been truly disastrous for the industry; a couple more summers like this and the two-hundred-million dollar spectacle will be reduced to a very small number indeed (and even the tried-and-true joss wheadon projects will be at risk if they flop)



How are they defining flop?
I'm only asking as this Transformers movie was probably not all that impressive (compared to earlier installments), yet it still took in close to a $$ billion more than they spent on it. I don't know if the producers will call that a success or not.
I'd say MOST of what has turned me off of the blockbuster movies is I can pretty much predict what scene chiché or piece of dialogue is coming next.
My wife laughed as I correctly predicted the "Go, Go! Go!, Go!" and "Look out!" right before the actors did.

I'm beginning to think the film composers are all using the same score now.


Hey! It only took you 8 years to notice.

Coal Miners Daughter

It had been such a long time since I watched it through, that I had forgotten what a good film it really is.

Well, I'd never seen her before, so apart from an appreciation for tits in general, I would never have been, er, exposed to hers.

Not the best Bond movie, but certainly not the worst.

It's kind of bad, but it's funny.

It's so bad it transcends into fun entertainment. It's a hilarious watch if you get a kick out of broken continuity.

Is that the one with the moon buggy thing?

I remember as a kid, my friend had a Matchbox or something like that as a toy (larger scale than a regular Matchbox).

It was years later that I saw the movie--prior to that I had no clue why a man in a suit would be in a space buggy.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

That movie is good. Campy and over the top maybe, but good.

There aren't too many horror in space movies, so take what you can.

Elysium.

I enjoyed it. I thought the message was a little "brick to the face" obvious, but then I read some posts on IMDB and many still didn't get it. Ah well :D

I think Neil Blomkamp and Sharlto Copely are the next Tim Burton and Johnny Depp.
I'm sorry Dave...

I recently watched Phantom Menace with Rifftrax (first time I watched the move since the original theatrical run) and then MST3K's "The Beatniks."

MST3K is more entertaining than Rifftrax, in my opinion.

I never liked the MST3K concept, because my friends and I all loved to sit and watch those same movies and make our own spontaneous and infinitely funnier commentaries. It felt like they were trying to replace friendship and creativity, or at least market nostalgia for them to everyone who hadn't any.

I just started watching Henry IV part I; going to finish tonight. So far it seems like a good adaptation of the Shakespeare play; almost immediately I knew who the characters were, just by where they were at. ;)

The World's End. A silly bit of fun. Love the trio of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright.
