Superbad was okay. Pineapple Express was better.

Really? I thought Pineapple Express was really, really terrible. When I got to the end of it I said, "If that's the state of modern comedy, then film is truly dead."

They were comedies?

Duh, dude. I stick fiddling know taste is subjective. If you'll note, you'll see that I used the words "I thought" when I rendered my opinion about that movie.

Sorry for being so short. Had a bit of a tense morning.

Not sorry for hating Pineapple Express, though. :P

I get that at home.

I'll be at work, and my wife will call about the Internet being down. Then, when I say I'll call when I get home, she gets upset. Apparently I am supposed to be able to diagnose the problem, and/or help the dumbass technician at our ISP diagnose the problem remotely through an insanely restricted firewall at work.

God forbid we lose the signal entirely. Then I'm expected to remain on hold with the ISP until it comes back...

i've always had a hard time watching his movies since the ... unpleasantness

Yeah, it's one of my favorite of his movies but it's hard to get past how creepy he is.

I din't recall he was in the movie until I started watching it. It's part of my collection that I picked at random and it was quite the coincidence.

White House Down, followed the next day by Olympus Has Fallen.

Olympus Has Fallen was the better movie.

The Book Thief

I really enjoyed it, it was a well done movie, but the product placement at the very end was just so out of place and a bad way to end it.

Iron Man Three. Good timing on watching this one too, I'd just re-watched Avengers the night before. The focus on Tony Stark as he relates to Iron Man was quite interesting. Nice twist on the Mandarin, with the real villain wanting aiming to be a literal mandarin by force. It lagged around the middle with the young kid and had a couple somewhat jarring jumps in narrative, but overall I thought it was well done and quite enjoyed it, even though I couldn't figure out why an oil tanker was loading containers...

Haven't watched any movies lately, but i am starting the True Blood series from the beginning. I'm on the second season now, which was my least favorite season.
