I saw Up in 3D this morning. It was cute, but Finding Nemo is still my fav Pixar.
"Hearts and Minds."

Always heard it was an incredible doc, but it was never available ... finally got my hands on it and was blown away. Really shows the power of a doc. I can see why it won the Oscar.
Just came back from Land of the Lost.

Please ... don't go see it.

Saw Up?

Is that the one where a guy wakes up with his privates tied to a bunch of balloons and has to make a difficult decision?

Now, that would be an interesting twist. :)

You had to go to it to figure that one out? :der:

As a kid my brother and I loved the TV show, and I hoped against hope that it would appeal to me. Hope unfulfilled.
I just saw Frost/Nixon

As someone who didn't grow up with Watergate (although I lived nearby it for a period of my life), It was a very interesting movie. Sort of compels me to go watch the actual tapes.
Listen. Listen to the actual tapes.

The audio quality is often really iffy; the transcripts are easier.

Talladega Nights

It was ok. Even if NASCAR still sucks.

Casino Royale (on tv)
It was better than I remember, even if some notable scenes were cut.
Makes me want to go out and buy it and Quantum of Solace, and watch them back-to-back.
I think the "reboots" of James Bond, Batman, and Star Trek have been great successes.
Are there any that are failures?

Ok, there's one ...
Taxi Driver.

God, such an amazing movie. I now realize the music was crucial in setting the mood. And it helped that Bernard Hermann was God.

Oh, and I'm now a member of the school of thought that says Travis died in the shootout, with the "happy ending" being his end-of-life fantasy.

Really, really liked that flick.

I liked it too, but I hated the random plot twist and though that it could have been a lot better.
In keeping with last "Friday Movie Night's" theme, I watched All the President's Men tonight. Really interesting movie, especially since I live in the DC area and have come to know many of the buildings and people featured in the movie (Bob Woodward, anyone?). I though the ending could have been better though...

Also, any thoughts on where I could go to find the transcripts/audio of the actual tapes?

A library?
Perhaps the Library of Congress?

Urgg... If I'm remembering correctly, to actually get into the reading/research room of the LoC, one would need a Researches Permit/Pass, which is a PITA to get.

I was being facetious. :shrug:
Anyway, I wouldn't think it would be too hard to find.
Let me know how it goes, ok?

They couldn't change the ending, it was based on actual history.

WOW! Thanks, Schnick, for helping me understand the Marijuana policy of the United States. The whole thing is built on the unconsidered ramblings of a madman.

Oh human waste, that's nothing. You really want to know about the War on Drugs, read this. It'll blow your mind.

Picture a top government official in charge of fighting drugs, alcoholic, insane, pioneering the use of LSD by slipping it into the drinks of his dinner guests -- often his subordinates and their wives -- before molesting said wives. Oh, and taking photos.

Great author, great book.

No, I mean the way they handled the end of the movie: just having news wires print across the screen. Sort of rushed feeling.

And thanks for the links!
Oh, I see. Well, when they made the movie the actual scandal was known to everyone. Less well known was how the story was broken.

My irritation stems from the way they made it seem like Woodward and Bernstein were the only reporters chasing the story. That is not the way it was. Seymour Hersh was at least as important in that role.

Just saw Star Trek last night. I liked it.
Heavy Metal. Classic.
Just came back from Terminator: Salvation.

Actually it was a lot better than I'd expected. Maybe I benefited from keeping my expectations mighty low.

I must say I was surprised that Christian Bale practically had a supporting role ... that cyber-dude totally stole the show.

And I loved that little surprise appearance at the end by you-know-who.
