Quantum of Solace

Duke, I think the sound must have been seriously screwy in your theater. It was crystal clear where I was, and only a few characters had any kind of accents. None were thick accents.

Otherwise I agree with most of what you were saying there.
If something I said can be taken two ways, and one of those ways upsets you... I meant the other way.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Actually wasn't bad. Laughed more than I expected.

Letter from Iwo Jima.

Although the central premise (modern archaeologists discover a hidden bag of letters in the caves inhabited by the Japanese during the invasion) setting up the story is a little contrived... the actual story is pretty dang good. I think it makes an excellent companion piece to Flags of Our Fathers. Neither film quite portrays the event in an overly jingoistic rah rah patriotic that it would be very easy to do with these stories.

A solid directorial performance for Clint Eastwood.

The movie before that was Hancock. Before that was Hedwig and the Angry Inch (AWESOME!).

Non movie: the first season of The Six Million Dollar Man. supercheese!

Now that Netflix, Sony and the 360 are on the same page...

Indy and the Stupid Skull.
Children of Men (again)
Sweeny Todd (didn't expect the music)
AvP:R (better than the first but that's not saying much)

Hancock should be in the mail box today.

I watched The Dark Knight and Horton Hears A Who.


I liked the latter more than the former, but i'm not a Batman fan at all. I only watched it because i'm a Heath Ledger fan.

Catwoman

Uhm... Hale Berry moving like a cat.... Sharon Stone... this should have been good. I blame the director, whoever he/she was.

Oh yeah! He was great! If you want to see him in a really good performance, rent Candy. I actually bought it not long before he died.

I started to watch Poultrygeist. I might have lasted 5 or 10 minutes. Once I saw the guy "badgering the witness", I turned it off.

Poultrygeist?

I just read the plot at imdb.com. What a funny idea. Sounds like something to watch while getting buzzed at best.

One question though, what the hell does a guy "badgering the witness" have to do with chickens and an Indian burial ground. How the hell did they work that scene in?

The last movie I watched was A Summer Story. A weak attempt at a "sequel" to A Christmas Story. Sort of. I've seen it before but was attempting to share with my 10 year old daughter.

She wanted to know what the point of the story was. I had to laugh as it didn't really have one. The plot was very "sketchy" to say the least.

At least she was able to think about what she was watching and not just be a passive observer.

That's what i thought. A spoof of Poltergeist.
[spoiler]Once the movie FINALLY gets started, there's this chick dry humping in a graveyard. Then they start screwing. Then chicken finger (or whatever it was) comes out of the ground and sticks it in the guys ass. He thinks she's doing it. Then she sees a guy watching them holding a shovel and says "look what he has in his hand". He thinks she means the shovel. She was talking about him "badgering the witness".[/spoiler]

That's when i decided the movie wasn't at all what i was expecting, and definitely wasn't for me.

"Get Smart." A friend brought it over tonight.

It was one I was sorta interested in seeing, but it wasn't one I was going to go out of my way to see.

I think I laughed myself hoarse. Holy, crap. :lol:
