Star Trek looks fun.

Advance buzz on Star trek is very positive. I'll be seeing it a week before general release at a press screening. Transformers 2 will undoubtedly suck even more than the first. Wolverine will probably suck; Terminator might be ok; don't care about Harry Potter and never heard of Up.

Up is the new Pixar film, but it looks odd.

I'll probably see Star Trek, Wolverine 2 and maybe Transformers 2 of those. And my guesses are the same as Ergo's.

Oh wait, I'm going to see Harry Potter too. Ugh.

Ah, yes. I did see a trailer for that but forgot the name. And yeah, it does look odd.

And since this knocked off the other movies thread, how about we just talk about anything ever put to film.

Like my penis, for example.

I'm going to see Wolverine in the theater just to see if they were able to add anything to that shitty early version that leaked.

Terminator never sounded interesting to me because I watched Terminator 3. And then I saw Christian Bale was attached.

Though truthfully, I'm more excited about the Bale/Depp film about John Dillinger.

Good movie.

Deja Vu was a good premise until they completely ruined it by adding in time-travel, even though it was obvious it would happen and everything was waaaaaaay too telegraphed.

I'm pretty sure that's the only way way enjoying that movie is possible.  My kids and I watched that SAndler movie Bedtime Stories last night.  It wasn't as stupid as I expected, which is all I expect out of a kids movie these days.

I haven't used anything other than bank transfer issued from Internet banking in... well, my whole life. You people live in 3rd world or something?

Continuing after Clerks, I've watched Mallrats. Quite good for such young director, sound quality was still weird, but better than Clerks. I don't understand why he spoils his comedies with romance, though.

that is just something that can happen with 4 year olds, regardless of the movie, or activity. 4 year olds are manic depressive by nature. My 5 year old loved it, actually.  It's a cute movie, it's just not near as funny as it should have been.

Apparently, Al Lowe approves of this site. Too bad he isn't the owner of the IP.
Funny blurb from the site:

I sincerely hope that Activision Blizzard can appreciate this tribute to these game franchises (as their original creators such as Al Lowe do), and not ask me to close down the site due to copyright issues.


Yeah, that really worked well for DHTML Lemmings.

Yeah, I had my three year old do the same. Even my son would do that when he was five sometimes. That's a long time for a small person to sit still and behave. Sometimes they just get too bored no matter the movie.

Saw 2 more classic movies over the weekend: The Maltese Falcon (1941) and Sullivan's Travels (1941).

This will probably make Yot slap his forehead again, but I thought they were both just sort of okay. The Maltese Falcon was kind of hard to follow with its various twists and players. Admittedly this is probably largely the point of the movie, and it did have the most sophisticated plot I've seen yet in this little experiment. I expect it gets a lot of credit for being one of the first movies to do that kind of thing, along with the whole film noir detective story thing.

I will say it was amusing watching people get knocked out for hours at a time whenever Humphrey Bogart waved his knuckles gently in their general direction.

Sullivan's Travels was okay. About a privileged movie director who wants to walk a few miles in hobo shoes so he can understand poverty and tackle it better in films. It's actually kind of a comedy, though, and has an odd message: Don't make people think or feel; make them laugh, you jackass.

I will say that leading lady Vivian Lake was SMOKIN' hot, though. People talk about her hair, but I loved her voice more than anything.

The Maltese Falcon is one of those movies that as you watch it you start realizing that you've seen so many spoofs, parodies, and tributes to it that you're more familiar with it than you thought. Citizen Kane was like that for me, too.

Up next are Casablanca (no, never seen it) and Yankee Doodle Dandy.
