Prometheus was....ok? I mean, there were little parts I enjoyed and it was pretty, but the storyline was meh. It moved too slow and not a lot happened, I guess. I don't know. But Michael Fassbender as David was pretty much my favorite part of the movie. He did a great job with his character.

I should probably send Ridley a congratulations card for ruining any mystery that he built up in Alien. No questions were answered, and if they were, they were just answered with more questions.

Yeah, I pretty much asked all of those same questions while watching the movie.

Caught The Incredible Hulk on tv yesterday. It was nice, although having the whole thing lead up to a Hulk vs. Abomination showdown kind of made the entire previous conflict irrelevant. They could have had that fight in the beginning of the movie and it would have ended exactly the same way. Ah well, it's a superhero movie, so what are ya gonna do?

My boyfriend and I have made a deal for alternating picks on a regular movie night. Last night was my choice and we watched Kung Pow because I finally packed out my DVDs and I forgot I owned it. Andrew had never seen it and he liked it so we're 1 - 1 on our choices.

The Amazing Spider-Man


It was actually, surprisingly, against my utmost cynicism of reboots and superhero films, amazing. Really well done. A lot of critics are saying "Same as the other one!" - well, duh, how are you supposed to make a Spiderman origins story different when you're using the same source material and the other film only came out ten years ago? I liked the characters better than the original (especially Uncle Ben), I enjoyed the point-of-view Spiderman shots, and just thought the whole story was well constructed.

I saw Amazing Spider-man and really liked it too. Basically everything you just said. Plus, Spider-man never made me cry like Amazing did.

I loved it too. Agreement on the crying but Confession: I've only seen Spiderman 3. Also, I liked it.
Even got into a debate about Amazing with someone who's basic complaint was, "We've seen this kind of story before." Well, yeah... That doesn't mean it's badly told though.

I think it also had that tinge of a comedy element that worked so well in The Avengers too.

The trailers made Garfield's Peter Parker look like an utter moron (the trailer I saw was the awkward "wanna do something soon?" scene in school), but he seemed stronger than Maguire's Parker. That is probably solely to do with the tone of the film, but hey.

Christ Welu, you only saw Spiderman 3? I kind of feel sorry for you. The first two were actually okay, and didn't involve a student having an emo-mid-life-crisis mid-film.

My impression of the critics crying foul about The Amazing Spiderman re-hashing old territory is that a full on reboot wasn't actually necessary. The modern Spiderman universe has been fleshed out by major blockbuster movies and we don't need to retread that territory. It would have been totally plausible to "continue" the story started with Raimi's films, introducing us to Garfield's Spiderman as fully fledged character. People would buy the actor changes; audiences swallow way more ridiculous things than that, after all. I've got to say that I agree with this sentiment. I haven't seen TAS yet, and part of that is because I don't want to see dweeby Peter Parker get bitten by a spider and have to flummox his way through web slinging in what I can only assume is a very fast paced montage in which minor slapstick elements are employed to increasingly lofty string music as he figures his shit out and then gets a speech from Uncle Ben and meanwhile fumbles his way through trying to cop a feel from a girl who, lets face it, is way out of his league and, assuming this is a high school on planet earth, would probably not really acknowledge his existence, all things being equal.

I dunno, maybe this reboot is aimed at the generation below mine who weren't really able to see the first couple Maguire Spiderman films, but I can't help but feel that a lot of time was surely wasted developing characters and a story that everyone not only already knows but has seen within not-too-distant memory. Wouldn't it have been better to jump right into the fray, introduce some cool villains right off the bat, and have more bad-ass Superhero v. Villain brawls? Of course, I really disliked the previous Spiderman trilogy - I thought the first was just OK and the next two went WAY downhill from there - so maybe getting a clean slate is what the series needed after all.

I was entertained, whether it meant to do it the way it did or not.

From what I know the reboot only exists so Warner Bros could hold on to their license.

All too common, it's the biggest reason for most remakes/sequels (out side of trilogies) and even doing that stupid 4th movie that didn't need to be made except to save the licensing.


Also, anyone seen They Live? Is it worth it?

It's hilarious. Personally I think it's worth watching. Even if it's just to hear the line, "I've come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass...and I'm all out of bubblegum," and watch Roddy Piper and Keith David beat the shit out of each other.

Another movie I saw awhile ago was The Shrine.  One of the better horror/thriller movies I've seen in awhile.

Seems to only exist on Netflix, where I happened to stumble upon it one day.  Haven't found it in DVD or BluRay yet.

The Dark Knight Rises. Loved it. Some of my friends were there by coincidence so hung out with them after and had very nerdy feminist discussion even though I was the only female in the group.

"Night of the Comet"! A bizarre, hilarious, and horribly plotted 80s flick about two sisters battling to survive zombies and evil scientists after radiation from a comet turns most of LA (and probably the world) to dust. In other words, this movie rules so much.

Brave. It was fun, and such a relief that I didn't have to put so much effort in watching the 3D effects this time. A 2D movie just lets you relax. And the movie: I was surprised with the direction the plot took, and I had the impression it was mainly done for giggles. Still, it resolved itself nicely, and I enjoyed it.

Finally saw Dark Knight Rises and it was awesome. I'm kind of sad Nolan won't be making any more Batman movies because I liked his more realistic take on it. Though it is a little open for sequels, so maybe something will come of it? But I'll be sad if they do make more and they're not quite up to par.

If Killer Croc got introduced at all in this timeline, it would be more along the lines of his (obvious homage) appearance in the show The Cape I think, but he's also not an interesting enough villian on his own to make the star of a Nolan style film. If he came around, he'd likely be a soldier henchman for someone else.

The look that he had in that Brian Azzarello Joker book would have fit pretty well in the Nolan universe.


Also, they're gonna try for a more Justice League friendly Batman from now on.

I think it's been stated that Nolan would only make three Batman movies and that was it. I don't think he'll be directing anymore Batman related movies, but he might produce. (I noticed he was one of the producers for Man of Steel.) But the possibility is open and I hope it gets pursued in the future.

A sequel could be over-doing it though. The Nolan Trilogy took seven years to be released (not including filming for BB) - if there is going to be a sequel, it is at least three or four years down the line from here.

As for Zsasz - wasn't he in Dark Knight Rises? I'm sure I heard his name.

My take on it:

That's pretty neat. I didn't realize during the movie they were female, so credit to the performance and make-up.

I really liked Hedwig's dialogue and the aloofness with which they talked to the crowds.

Now I have to admit that I never saw it. Miriam got a part in a TV show, I think a sitcom, that my wife and I watched a couple of times. She graduated from the same suburban Detroit high school our daughter attended. A fellow classmate, nearly a decade after their graduation, had married an Indian woman he'd met at an anthropology course taught in India, in a civil ceremony in Ohio. The couple planned a Hindu ceremony in Calcutta in 2000, and invited their friends to the wedding and some group travel following. Our daughter was invited. Without money, she invited me. I bought three tickets. Our daughter met the guy she was to marry, and backed out. Clara and I went to the wedding although we hadn't met either bride or groom. Had a great time, minus a few hiccups.

I watched "Source Code" and "Moon" yesterday and after I realized they were both by the same guy.. who is also David Bowie´s son :D

I think I liked "Moon" a little better, though both movies were great.
It has that deserted and lonely feel of 2001 or Solaris, and the twist was thought-provoking and depressing at the same time. Maybe the end was a bit sappy for my taste but overall very entertaining if you like that kind of stuff.

Also saw "Capricorn One" as part of my ongoing "Sci-fi" rehash-thing. More of a thriller/government-cover-up thing, but I remembered seeing it as a kid with my dad and it had kind of struck me then with the eerie photography of the astronauts crawling through the desert, not of Mars but of Earth, being chased by black helicopters and all.
Also it´s by Peter Hyams who made "2010" and "Outland", so is well versed in the gloomy-scifi field.

I think I´ll probably see "The Sleeper" next. Another one I saw with my dad ages ago.

Watched the original Terminator. Realized about twenty minutes in I'd never seen it before! I really thought I had, because I've definitely seen 2 and 3, plus I knew so many of the scenes from parodies and Best [type] Scene lists.

Loved it.

Oh, so he wasn't related to the wedding at all? For whatever reason, I pictured her meeting some random guy and she was also supposed to marry him at that wedding and she freaked out. I don't know why I thought that, it sounds like a terrible rom-com plot line.

The Phantom movie makes me think of that Shadow movie they made around the same time. Also, I totally had one of those promo skull rings and I wore it all the time.

I remember thinking it was such an awesome movie when I was a kid

Wait - didn't it just come out a couple of years ago? 

[checks date - 1996!?!??!]

Damn, I'm getting old - my sense of time's slipping.

I know, right? I was under the impression I had only seen it at the cinemas a few years ago... but I was about 10 years off hehe.

The Phantom movie makes me think of that Shadow movie they made around the same time. Also, I totally had one of those promo skull rings and I wore it all the time.

Ooooo I haven't seen that one in a while. TO THE INTERNET!!!

I would have worn the heck out of a skull ring, kudos!

Day of the Dead (1985)

Some over the top acting but overall quite enjoyable. The two bearded soldier characters (Steele and the other one) freaked me out and gave a feel for the breach between the "brainy" scientists and the "brawny", menacing soldiers, fed up with protecting them. Also it has just the right length (102 min) not to bore those twitchy people like me.

Well, I recently re-watched Clive Barker's Nightbreed and then I found out about this!

Prometheus.

I don't see what people disliked about it. Solid flick.

Fuck I have so many problems with that film it is ridiculous. Don't understand all the positive media attention.

This guy pretty much sums up all the questions I had: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-x1YuvUQFJ0

OH HEY EVERYONE

Go see Looper. Seriously. Brilliant, clever, makes you think why time travel movies had to have so many 'rules' before this one. Won't say too much more though.

I watched Akira for the first time the night before last; I'm still trying to get my head back on straight. 

Highly recommended, I think, but not an easy watch in some respects (and I don't really mean the violence, which is organic to the story, and quite acceptable in context to my mind).
