Transformers. The one where he rides a dinosaur.

It was... kind of long.

Watched Beowulf in 3D in Bino for mac. First time since I saw it in theaters. Say what you want, it's an entertaining film, and I can't help but feel the treatment is a superior concept to the original story. Also the 3D really is fantastic, especially the parts with the dragon. Although I mainly watched it again to see the gold dripping off demonic Angelina Jolie.

The secret to getting these to look good on your computer monitor is to crank your brightness all the way up. Then it looks almost as good as the D3d in the theaters, although the color is always a little off with Red/Cyan glasses.

Oh, and resurrected Megatron looked like a cartoon villain; not nearly as badass as in the first couple movies.

I enjoyed it and thought it was actually quite humorous (in a dark way).

I have that one pulled out to watch - mostly to see K Turner.

The sequel is also - interesting. I was watching it one day on cable and when the closing music started, my girlfriend said "Billy Ocean? Just how old is this movie?"

Fury. Good movie, not fun to watch. Probably hit a little closer to home for me as my grandfather was a tank commander in a Sherman during the war.

What's there to say about Hope and Ekberg?

Unless to say it's unfunny crap that everyone just phoned in.

The Longest Day. Disappointing. John Wayne pretty much played a parody of himself. He also demanded ten times the salary of the other stars. I read that Richard Burton did his part for free. The most believable big battle scene is when the French commandos attempt to take the casino.

History of the Eagles parts 1 and 2. Recriminations and lawsuits to the So Cal sound. Frey's got a massive ego. The recording of Frey threatening to kick Felder's ass during their last concert puts the tension int0 some perspective. Not the most pleasant of individuals but poor, self-harmed Joe Walsh seems just glad to be with them. I think that band saved his life. Sad the way Randy Meisner was let go. His voice was so distinctive. Highly recommended rock documentary. filled with good, but overly familiar, tunes.

Continuing our way through classic movie musicals, we watched State Fair (1945). I'd expect a few more than a half dozen songs out of a musical, but "It Might As Well Be Spring" kind of made up for it.

Da Vinci Code

PBS is running a series on Scottish buildings and Roslyn Chapel was featured. Seems Dan Brown's work was instrumental in helping generate the funds for its' restoration.

Interesting that it appears that the itinerant masons of the time were apparently given free reign to provide the design of the carvings. The pagan "Green Man" face is seen peering out between the Catholic images.

Odd is the hair of Tom.

Machete Kills.

I won't say it's deep, but like most Robert Rodriguez flicks, it's thoroughly steeped in post-modern self awareness, and manages to spoof every aspect of pop-culture that still has any impact. And as James Bond spoofs go, I think it beats the last Austin Powers movie. Most of it made me happy. Mind you, compared to the first Machete, it's kind of silly and over the top.

Jimi Hendrix: I See My Train A Comin'

A decent biopic, with a great soundtrack (naturally). Hendrix was a basically simple and decent guy who just loved music who died almost randomly before his life could ever get complicated or bitter, almost enviably. It's nice to hear from his family and friends though.

I watched that awhile back. I thought it was pretty good. I don't know that I'd run out and buy the dvd but I was entertained.
