haha, yeah don't remind me... but this one looked good. I have sworn M.Night off about 5 times... but i'm a glutton.

wish I'd gone to see The Incredible Hulk, which I'm probably going to on Wed or Thur before I head to the cabin

edit: i guess i should add that i saw it for free because a friend stole it (torrent) and burned it. So i guess there is a chance it wasn't the actual theatrical version. he got the halloween remake that way and it was not completely the same... so who knows...

I'll be fair here. It was entertaining, at no point did I get bored or mad at it. I just think with a cool idea like that, they could have done a little more and it could have ended way better. As has been said, the acting was poor, not just Mark, but all. meh, it's not that bad, but 8/10 had me shocked. I agree with most critics on this one.

Just watched DIG, a documentary on two American rock bands The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols and the love/hate relationship between them. It follows the very promising Brian Jonestown Massacre and their extremely talented yet egotistical, drug addicted, selfish, frontman/songwriter Anton Newcombe as they completely self destruct on and off stage over a period of seven years. At the same time chronicling the success of The Dandy Warhols and their frontman/sonwriter Courtney Taylor. Jonestown Massacre was at one time wanted by every major record label but because of Anton and his nonconformist, anti-machine views as well as his problems with heroin addiction and unwillingness to embrace any sort of commercial success they became ousted by nearly every record label large or small. Apparently in the beginning people in the know used to flock to their shows to hear their awesome retro yet fresh rock and roll sound, but near the end people just showed up to see if the band itself would explode into a fist fight on stage or if Newcombe would melt down and assault someone in the crowd.

I really like the early Dandy Warhols stuff but had never heard of Jonestown Massacre, Zia McCabe of The Dandy Warhols said it best in the film "their kinda like The Velvet Underground of our time." She hit the nail on the head, I'm gonna have to try and find some of their music. ;-D

If you're into documentaries or modern/retro rock and roll...or just enjoy watching a good train wreck I highly recommend it. ;-D ;-D

I had a buddy in from out of town and we say The Love Guru this past weekend.

It was horrible. To give you an idea, the audience was silent through 90% of the movie. We should have seen Get Smart instead. :-/

I give it a D. (6/10)

Let's see, I haven't done any posting in here for a bit.

Charlie Bartlett - decent, enjoyable. I've always liked anton yelchin, RD Jr. is one of my favs. Kat Denning was cool in 40 year old virgin, similar character here. I think it's worth the rent. Definitely stole some stuff from Pump up the Volume, maybe a little from Almost Famous. More PUTV though. OK stuff.

The Hammer - So much better than I thought it would be. It's great for a straight to video movie. Most straight to videos aren't worth a crap. This was good. Adam Corolla (former golden gloves boxer in real life) plays a similar character to his real life boxing side. He's 40 in the movie and tries making a comeback. Also worth a rent, blockbuster exclusive though. He adds a bunch of his humor in there as well.

All in all, a decent morning watching vids.

Finally saw The Mist. I thought it was a really good movie, although I think the acting of David Drayton wasn't that great. But like I've said before, I rate movies by how much they entertain me, not by the little things that are wrong. 8/10. ;-D

Wanted 8/10

pretty cool movie. I think it took in over 50 million this weekend... Lots of hyper-stylized action scenes and crazy "matrix style" slowed down gun sequences. Visually pleasing to the eye for sure, and I'm not just talking about Angelina Jolie :-)
A few plot questions remain but they don't detract too much from the experience...... A fun(and sometimes funny) action flick. ;-D
