I'm in the middle of XIII on Hulu right now. Makes me want to play the game again.

Hate that they replaced the girl on the beach with an old couple in the snow.

Finished XIII. They kept the continued conspiracy that the game had, setting up the sequel that never was.

Now I think maybe the movie was just a pilot.

Coraline in 3D. First off, 3d movies lately are really cool. Second, the movie itself was really good. Delightful visually, a strong enough plot, and just incredibly incredibly creative along the way.
The visuals don't hold up.

I heard a story on NPR about that movie. The animator said that he intentionally made the stop-motion a little less smooth than he could have, so that it obviously wasn't CGI.

Yeah if you get a chance google Coraline, there are lots of articles about the animation process and how everything was done by hand. Pretty epic stuff and it turned out very very cool.

I'm partial to the Coen brothers, and usually like even their less-successful films.

It wasn't amazing, by any stretch of the imagination.

I thought Brad Pitt's Burn After Reading acting was better than his Benjamin Button acting this year.

Sense and Sensibility. Had a similar reaction to it as I did to Pride and Prejudice - I wanted to gouge my eyes out, but it turned out to be a pretty good movie at the end. I liked Sense and Sensibility better, though - a lot less girly and a lot more realistic about the nature of love.

I just saw Black Hawk Down.

It was a good movie.

Actually knowing one of the people involved made it an emotional movie.

Just watched Charlie Bartlett.

Viewing from the eyes of a high schooler, I would have to say that it leaned towards opposite extremes about the reality... it was either "this happens every day" or "no way in hell."

I was underwhelmed, too.

And I'd bought the damn disc.

My sister didn't like Walle, Like, she didnt even like the robot himself; just providing more evidence that she is indeed completely unrelated to me.

It was not boring, but I didn't love it either. The subject matter made it at the minimum interesting.

"The Last Starfighter" on DVD via Netflix.

Awesome movie from the 80's.

My daughter liked it so much she watched it twice in a row.

You aren't the only one. I wasn't that impressed with it versus other Pixar movies either.

I don't know exactly what about it was lacking I just know that I didn't get the same "happy" feeling as I did when I watched other Pixar movies.

Yeah I thought he was a lot like Short Circuit too but I remember liking that movie too, then again you have to remember I saw that through the rose colored glasses of a >7 year old.

Wall•E's story was much thinner than usual with Pixar. The robots where limited in their character development, and there wasn't much given to the humans at all.

Mostly that Pixar is a victim of it's own success. One ominous point is that this was the first release since they merged with the Mouse.

I went and saw showgirls last night (with live commentary!). I'd seen the show before, and it's always great. I drank way too much, however.

I then went and caught the first couple of minutes of watchmen that started at midnight--I could have stayed for the whole thing, but all three theaters were packed and there was no way my drunk ass was standing for 2 hours. It looks awesome.

Ok. That deserves some discussion.
Who was doing the commenting, and what were they commenting about?
I assume this wasn't a bunch of drunks yelling back at the screen.

Here you go.

That theater (I used to work there) does it about once a year, but I'm pretty sure that guy performs elsewhere.

He's on the special edition DVD commentary track. It's pretty great.

I remember a rumor, that Elizabeth Berkley just gave up on the bathrobe, and just wandered around the set naked. In the line at the lunch wagon, script meetings, ect.
