Now for something completely different:

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.

It's still as awesome as it was when I saw it a few years ago, it's even better the show itself.

8/10


That movie is awesome, and so is Team America. You know the one that's really surprisingly funny after all these years? Beavis and Butthead do America. I watched that again last night, and Mike Judge is a satirical genius. The most outrageous shit is happening to these two idiots, and they're too busy trying to watch TV. That's America in a nutshell.

those two movies are some of the funniest film's I've ever seen. especially South Park. I remember when I first saw it like five years ago... (I was 13, a friend lent it to me.)

last movie I saw? The Ruins, but I've started watching Conan the Barbarian like an hour ago.

Eyes Wide Shut

I'm not too sure it actually had a point but it works wonderfully as a mood movie. It's not a bad film to end your life with.

8/10

I'm currently in the middle of The Duchess. I'm more interested than I thought I would be, but it's still not as good as it wants to be. Ralph Fiennes is impressing me so far, though he's more sedated than I originally conceived. I use the five-star system and this is moving toward a ***/*****. I'm just indifferent toward these period films; in the effort to make lavish production values, they never work hard enough to make the characters three-dimensional.

Just finished Once. Freaking adore this movie. One of the best 'musicals' ever dedicated to film.

The last shot still takes my breath away and makes me cry (possible spoilers): We see Her playing the piano from about midrange. She stops and looks at what seems like the camera. The camera pans back and we are watching her life unfold through an open window: her husband, her daughter, her mother, her friends. She stays looking out the window... smiling. We know who she is thinking of because the "Falling Slowly" song is playing on the soundtrack. We associate this song with Him and Her. It was the music that brought them together and it is music that has separated them in order to live the rest of their lives. He is away and is pursuing a career and more importantly, the real love of his life... the inspiration for his music. She was the catalyst to help him move along. He was the catalyst for her to bring music back into Her life and possibly allow for her to live the life she is supposed to for her daughter and husband. The camera continues to pan back and we see that her window is the only one open in her apartment complex. The music swells, the camera swoops to the right, pans across her dirty, red bricked building with closed windows and her open window, and then the landscape changes to the outside world. The green grass in the park; the busy streets of the city. The wide open sky of the world. Her potential and Her life are now limitless because He has opened that window for Her by gifting Her the music to play whenever. (spoilers ended)

This is like the 12th time I've seen this movie. Damn it is so good. 4 stars.

The Game Plan

The Rock was awesome. He had so many great quotes and promos, like his promo about The Hell in the Cell at Armageddon 2000 making fun of Kurt Angle, The Undertaker, Rikishi, The Big Show, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple HHH. Then there was the insults against Michael Cole and Stephanie McMahon. He was hilarious

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a horrible caricature of The Rock where he is manipulated and tortured by a little girl. The Rock would've gave that girl a spine-buster, The People's Elbow and The Rock Bottom in 2 minutes, pin her and get another reign as WWE champion. It's painful to even watch, I would have even watched Walking Tall and I hated Walking Tall! I smell what The Rock is cooking and it smells like shit!

2/10

The Three Amigos!

Wonderful references not only to Western staples but also to the Seven [Three?] Samurai. Plus I love movies where there is a screw up in communication or mistaken identity; The Man Who Knew Too Little, North By Northwest, Flirting with Disaster... etc.

And it was funny!

Once is probably one of the few movies I've seen in the past year that I could probably watch once a week for the rest of my life and not tire of it. I would have said once a day, but the only movie I could stand to do that for is Memento.

I never finished The Duchess; indifference triumphed. Besides, I saw in detail the costumes and art direction, which is what the movie was nominated for. I haven't watched anything since I gave up on the film, but my mother watched The Fall yesterday and liked it. I'll probably watch it in the next day or so. I also brought My Sassy Girl home because one of my friends brought it up, so I'll likely rewatch it sometime this weekend.

Once was one of my favorite movies from last year.
Part of me likes to fantasize what the film could've been if Thom Yorke and Bjork played the lead roles. :)

Then we have Dancer in the Dark again. Yes I know that it was Peter Stormare as the kinda-love interest but Yorke replace Stormare in the soundtrack so I like to imagine Yorke replaced Stormare in the movie as well.

Layer Cake.

I was very impressed, even though I somewhat pieced together all the shenanigans. Amazing soundtrack as well. Let me tell you, had I seen these before Casino Royale I would never have been concerned about him playing Bond!

Michael Gambon's voice for some reason brings back to me echoes of Sebastian Cabot, whose voice was the voice I always hoped to get as an adult once I watched Jungle Book as a kid. It's like he can just tear you down and you think 'Thank you so much!' because his voice is so cool and the measured way he speaks just makes everything seem like a compliment!

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

I almost soiled myself laughing. It's nearly genius its manic energy and two brilliant running jokes. The first is random destruction of sinks. The second is how every past musician is referred to by his full name like "Why thanks for the encouragement Buddy Holly!". I am sad that the Patrick Duffy cameo complete with "Patrick Duffy is going to get a beating!" wasn't in the movie though.

9/10

The music would've been much, much weirder. And the final shot would've been of Him with eyes shut, sitting holding his knees in the corner, leaning his head against the wall humming quietly; pan outside the window to Her, wearing a dress of fluffy purple feathers, using a magic wand to make a cloud staircase up to a floating magical house inhabited by a grotesque man-sized plushy tree sloth laying back in a giant hammock and gorging itself on fresh, bright, lemons and pineapples. THE END.

It's in the director's cut, which adds a good 20 minutes of additional, and equally funny, material. Which I presume they cut to maintain the overall pacing of the film (which was a good call, as it's a bit bloated with that stuff added in -- but worth watching if you really like the movie).

"Dewey, get out of here! You don't want no part of this shit!"

I found that out 5 minutes after I posted it and I don't care how bloated it is after 20 extra minutes I want to see Patrick Duffy take a beating!

I'm right there with you -- there's some awesome stuff that they cut out :)

Resident Evil: Extinction

My 6 might be a little generous but I don't think it deserves a 5. But without a doubt this is the best Resident Evil movie. It's pretty much Mad Max meets Some Spaghetti Western with zombies and it's decent fun as it is. Also, there's a story in this again unlike whatever the hell RE: Apocalypse was but they did keep one fatal flaw: They still kill zombies by breaking their necks but they only do it twice unlike Apocalypse where it was around five times they broke a zombie's neck.

And another surprisingly thing is that the acting is better here than previous two. Milla Jovovich has Alice down pat and is still a decent heroine. Ali Larter shows unseen grittiness as Claire Redfield and Oded Fehr is much better here than in Apocalypse.

6/10 (more like 5.5 but I like whole numbers)

At this point in the Resident Evil series, shouldn't all of the characters have developed mental disorders by now? This always bothered me...


The last film I've seen is 'Wall-E' during workout. What a sensational film, although I think Staunton's other Pixar flick 'Finding Nemo' is still their creative and emotional pinnacle. He is certainly thier signature director.

Pineapple Express

Good show. Missed seeing Franco's comedy since Freaks and Geeks. He did a really good job. I think I'm turning into a Judd Apatow groupie.

Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem

There's violence and a better story than the first but it's so under-lit half of the time I couldn't see the violence! When you can't figure out who's being killed by what there's a problem.

Then there's the humans...what a waste of time. At least in the first AvP they just weren't there and weren't THAT poorly acted. Take away the humans and you got a decent movie that's like Out For Justice but instead of Steven Seagal it's Predator, instead of William Forysthe it's Pred-Alien and instead of random bad guys it's Aliens!

And why did they send just ONE predator to kill all the aliens?

4/10
