I saw "Ghost Rider" over the weekend......it was pretty damn cool, I'd have to say.  Of course, it was based on a comic book, so I guess you have to like that stuff to appreciate it.  But Nick Cage was good, and Eva Mendez............WOW!  Really cool special effects of the flaming skull variety.  Two thumbs up.

I saw 300 last weekend. It was okay...

A little to much CG special effects for me (not that it wasn't cool...)  The one shot that I liked the most was towards the end of the movie when the director panned out from some soldiers (not giving away anything else.)

Somehow, it seemed a little too artificial for my tastes though-- I kind of like to go to movies where I can "place myself in the action" or where it gives me enough detail that I can let my imagination take it further.... Or movies where the silliness is so overboard that it's absolutely not going to happen... Part of the problem for me is that the movie didn't feel like it was in a "real space"...

But the 6-pack abs were nice... LOL

I guess you don't watch the Sopranos then?!!  Very similar in language!    Forest Whitaker took home the Oscar for The Last King of Scotland.  Someone told me that he is in The Shield.  It's on tonight at 10pm if you are still awake!  I don't know if I will be! Wink

After watching last night's episode, it looks like it might be his last appearance on that show.

"Grindhouse"... a new classic from QT and RR!
"Departed"... Scorsese does it again!
A few of the "After Dark Horror Fest Series" were surprisingly good.
"Little Miss Sunshine"... a wonderful exercise in dysfunctionality.
I am personally glad Alan Arkin won the Oscar.
"The Sopranos"... I must finish the series... 8 more to go.
(I've been a follower since day one)
Ahhh... reminds me of... nevermind.
"The Shield"... Still remains one of the fastest hours on TV.
Amazingly gritty in style and always cutting edge.
OK, back out to the Snack Bar.

Little Miss Sunshine was quirky, yet excellent... Smiley Glad I bought it when it came out...

Let's see... recent acquisitions in my DVD collection...

Some movies, some TV shows...

Northern Exposure-- I now have the entire 6 seasons.   However, after watching the last season, I am painfully reminded of why I stopped watching that year... They basically faded the show into the woodwork with writers that couldn't keep up the snappy wit and energy of the earlier years of that show.... When they got rid of Rob Morrow (Dr. Joel Fleishman), they essentially killed off the premise of the whole show.. It wasn't long after he left that the show ended for good...... Anyways, it's still one of my favorite shows!!!


Other new movies I bought recently:
Happy Feet (very cute!)
March of the Penguins (Interesting)
Emperor's New Groove (Another Disney film--haven't seen it yet.)
The Princess Bride (yes, an old movie, but still funny none-the-less)

I thought Little Miss Sunshine had it's moments, but overall I thought it dragged on a bit!  Great cast though!

I saw "Blades of Glory" over the weekend, and laughed my ass off.  Will Ferrell and Jon Heder are both hilarious.   Grin

Last King of Scotland was graphic in some places, but very good.
I realize it is a fictionalization, but it was supposed to be set in a historical context.
I read somewhere that people actually mistook Forrest Whittaker for Idi Amin--he played the part so well.

One of my new favorite movies is now "Freedom Writers".
It was a powerful movie about a teacher and her students and truly inspirational to me. Very inspirational. It is a testament to how much can be achieved and how many cultural bridges can be made when people are treated with respect.  The DVD extras were good as well.


Solodka-- It was slow at times, but totally led me in a direction I wasn't suspecting... LOL

Brew-- I have been waiting to see Blades of Glory. Will Ferrell for some reason manages to make everything hilariously funny... I don't think I've seen a movie yet that I did not like...  I'll probably wait to get it when it comes out on DVD.

Oh contrare!  Not only did he play a vampire, but he played a gypsy/werewolf in THe Wolfman, he played The Frankenstein Monster in Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman, he played a mad scientist in The Devil Bat, a zombie master in White Zombie and a hunchback shepard, Igor, in The Son of Frankenstein, and that's just to name a few!  Jeez, you need to brush up on your Bela Lugosi trivia Brew!
