Skyline. Which is the worst SCIFI movie in years. Absolutely diabolical. Really bad.

The Town. Bank Robbers in Charlestown, with Ben Aflik, which was pretty good.

A dangerous man, with Steven Seagal.

Another straight-to-video release for Seagal, nothing new really, yet I always find his films quite entertaining!! :D

Good film! The original Fletch was even better though. :)

Just got back from TRON: Legacy. AWESOME!

I have mixed feelings about the ending but still, like the original it was eye candy galore!!! And the story was good too.

I can tell you however, if you have a choice between 3D and 2D, you won't miss much if you watch in 2D.

I've seen.

- The A-Team (new movie): which is aces.
- The Crazies (2010): It was okay
- The Expendables: Close Hollywood, they will never make a better movie, but where the hell was Jean Claude Van Dam?
- Pan's Labyrinth. Really good.
- The Last Samurai. Mrs Kid likes this. I think she 'likes' Ken Wantanabe. Good film though innit?
- Inception. On the Blooo Raaays. Still ace.
- Lord of the Rings (new ones). Still really brilliant.
- U Turn. Sean Penn. That was ace. Penn might be annoying but he makes some great films.
- Evil Dead 2. Groovy. I still can't decide whether it's better or worse than the first one.
- Return of the living dead 2. The should ban IMDB 5.2 out of 10? Surely 10/10?
- Scrooged. I love this Christmas Bill Murray.

Van Damme's a pain in the ass to work with, supposedly. I'm sure there were enough egos on the set.

Evil Dead 2 is definitely better than the first one. The first one was trying too hard for the budget, which is why 2 got so self-referential.

I saw The Tourist this weekend. It has gotten terrible reviews. Unsurprisingly, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Evil Dead 2 is definitely better.

HAW. That link is awesome and SO true. When I was going through DVDs in the backroom at work the other day I noticed that there was a remake of Harriet the Spy. I barely rememberit , never seen it, but I had to do one of those WTF moments. That really needed to be redone? Has society really done everything and there is nothing new to be done? Are we going to see a remake of the TV Show ALF? :/

An ultra conservative place that keeps PG rated movies in the backroom. :P

The ALF tv movie destroyed anybody's desire to see more. Tie me to a chair and make me watch The Charmings, anything but that.
