Just saw World Trade Center. Incredible story, incredible movie. Also saw School for Scoundrels. Pretty good movie, but kind of dull.

Watched Flags of our Fathers last night. It was tough to watch after reading the book. Interesting, because it was very accurate to the book, except for a couple things. I think they could have developed the fight on Iwo better, but it was a well done movie.

I actually went to the movies over the weekend and saw The Number 23. The previews made it look kinda interesting and my girl kinda dragged me to it. What a waste of perfectly hard-earning money! The plot was redicously lame and and very cheesy at time. Jim did a decent job acting out a serious role but this movie just bad. It had some potential but I guess they wanted to make it stupid.. sorry for the rant if you liked the movie but I thought it was very weak. Beware...

Watched Pan's Labyrinth the other night and I really enjoyed it....it's pretty much a fairy tale for adults. I thought it was interesting the way they had the "real life" story intertwined with the "fantasy" story. Suprisingly graphic at times, which I was not expecting at all! Definitely worth watching...very different, but entertaining.

Also watched Clerks II last night...pretty disappointed. I love the first one and I thought the second movie didn't capture any of the wit and "charm" that made the first one funny. It seemed like Kevin Smith didn't have any new material, but felt the pressure to make a sequel. Some things are better left alone.
Doesn't it suck to get beat at Fantasy Football...by a girl?

You should read the book if you liked the movie. ;-D


I watched Smokin Aces the other night. Plot twist was pretty disappointing. Movie overall was pretty disappointing. I was hoping for more gunfights at least.

Disappointing is an excellent word to sum up the entire movie. I heard a lot of good reviews going in, the previews looked sweet as hell, and the cast was stacked with stars from top to bottom. All fluff, no substance to all that potential. Lame, lame, lame.

From what I understand there's supposed to be a prequel and a sequel to this movie. Sequel, of course, featuring a lot more Markie Mark.

I really like this movie and the unrated director's cut is awesome. I highly recommend this movie to all those who haven't seen it. It's a violent movie which should be expected by Tarantino. It's just an awesome movie with a lot of twists and turns. Plus, check out this cast! Some only have very small roles but still...what a cast!

Christian Slater
Patricia Arquette
Christopher Walken
Dennis Hopper
Gary Oldman
Brad Pitt
Val Kilmer
Michael Rapaport
Chris Penn
Tom Sizemore
Samuel L. Jackson
Bronson Pinchot
James Gandolfini
Jack Black (small part that only shows up in the deleted scenes)


If you like Reservoir Dogs & Pulp Fiction but never saw True Romance, check it out. You won't be disappointed. ;-D


Geez, that's an incredible cast. 8-o



No doubt. It stars Slater & Arquette and like I said...some of the other actors have very small parts but that cast is unreal.

The scene with Hopper and Walken is one of the best scenes ever in a movie....no doubt.
;-D
