Burt is fucking excellent in all of the films, though. He makes the sequels, which would have been shit without him, into perfect monster movies.

I even loved the series when he was in it. The two or 3 episodes he wasn't in were much worse.

Doing what I can, with what I got.

Yeah the ad is poor! But its received mostly good reveiws, comparing it to the likes or iron man and saying it was suprisingly good..
Anyone else find Norton's role as Bruce Banner kind of ironic after playing the Narrator in Fight Club?

Anyways, as both a film and Marvel fan, I am going to see it tomorrow.
I'll tell you all what I thought then.

So I just watched The Bird People in China (Chugoku no Chojin), a Takeshi Miike film, and felt the need to write about it.

Wow, was I impressed with it.

It's nothing like the full-of-gore movies he's commonly known for (Ichi The Killer, One Missed Call, etc.), but wow.

I'd have to say it's my favourite Miike film I've seen.

Watched the film "Blow" last night, with a young Jonny Depp. Based on a true story, bloody brilliant. Never really a dull moment, great cast, great dialouge just a great film. I may be slightly biased though. I've always like films where the plotline revolves around drugs.

Hulk was good but not great! Norton was fantastic, CGI was decent. The opening is shakey but it really picks up from there. An improvement from the previous Hulk. Dont knock it on the trailer.

I think it was an awesome hour and a half reminder that Tim Curry is a great actor.

Never seen it, but i agree that Tim Curry is a great actor!

I remember watching this movie some years back and it was really good. Johnny Depp´s a great actor when he does good movies (not like that stupid Charlie and the chocolate factory remake).

"Revenge of the Fallen" is a ridiculous title. It's the sort of thing you'd expect in a parody, like "How To Kill A Mocking Bird 2: Return of the Revenge".

I cant wait either. I'm quite a fan :P

And the name sounds very similar to the type of names used for the old episodes, I think that this is why they chose it.

Gotta agree with you there. I hate stupid movie titles like this. It´s just really cliché. Kinda reminds me of this flash i voted on the other day, lol.

M. NIGHT'S: THE HAPPENING

I just saw The Happening....OLAWD. It was rich with detail and originality and made you think while looking at the lush envirements and making you laugh quite a lot. The movie started off with a woman killing herself so, it's one of the few movies that starts off a bit too quickly.

It was a little predictible with where the "attacks" start. It was pretty obvious what was really happening. But the movie has a lot to do with the science of nature. I had no idea that plants had stimuli. By now you could say, "But mooguy, it sounds like a fantastic movie," (which it is...) "But why did you say 'OLAWD'?" (...Untill the ending.) You see, during the middle of the movie, the main character has a revelation of what is going on. But the ending, oh ho...OH LAWD DID IT SUCK! I was hoping for a huge revelation as Night does in so many of his movies (like 6th Sence, Unbreakable, and The Village) but sadly, it was absolutly terrible. What happened? Go see it. Just don't get any high expectations.

You've all probably talked about this a while back but by the time I was in the 2nd paragraph, I thought about this.

America. Ghettos. Walmart. NFL. Internet. Slavery. Starbucks. Disney World. Porno. Fake tits. Sushi. Taco Bell. Rodeo. Christmas. Pop-Eye. Books. Sportsmanship. Fuck yeah.

After I'm done watching this series I've been renting from Netflix, I'll be going back to movies for a while, so I'll be able to bump this thread a bit more. I'm planning on seeing Magnolia and Jean de Florette / Manon of the Spring.

I still have not seen nay of his movies. I've been considering checking out Fritz the Cat for a while.

I have to admit I do enjoy dumb comedies like that. I've found most of Adam Sandler's movies to be funny. I actually recently saw I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry recently. I thought it was quite funny, though I was pretty damn high at the time. The bong and pipe I shared with my friends really messed me up that day.

I started the final season of Buffy today, and I'll start the second from last season of Angel tomorrow. When they're all watched, I'll watch all the films I've got unwatched on DVD (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Dirty Harry and Wild Wild West to name a few), and then I'm starting on Deadwood.

I love Dirty Harry. I still haven't seen any of the movies from the "Man With No Name trilogy", but I will some day. And I've been interested in Deadwood for a while, but I don't want to rent such a long series from Netflix, so I'll probably just rent the first disc and then buy the box sets when I have more money if I like it. I heard that Powers Boothe is in it. That guy is badass.

I bought season 1 on DVD ages, when it was on offer. It was the same time I bought season 1 of Buffy, and I started Buffy first, and then just forgot about Deadwood and watched seasons 1-3 of Buffy, and then started on Angel, so Deadwood just got shelved.

I actually really liked that, Sandler pulled it off so well in my opinion.
Then again, I haven't seen a movie with Adam Sandler in that I didn't enjoy.

The Waterboy, Happy Gillmore, Big Daddy, Mr. Deeds, Anger Management & The Longest Yard. All great.
I even enjoyed Click, despite me usually hating romantic comedy's.

Click was good. I teared up at the end.

I teared up last night too when I finished the Fullmetal Alchemist series. IT WAS SO EMOTIONAL.

Good movies will make you cry. First time I watched Donnie Darko I cried. Though I was young then.

I saw Knocked Up today. Fucking awesome. Seth Rogen has fucking sucked me in now, he's up there with Kevin Smith man. Speaking of which, I bought Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back for 10 bucks the other day. And I'll buy Clerks II soon as it's 15 bucks.

And see A Clockwork Orange man, it the best movie ever made IMO.

Watched Human Traffic and Shrooms today. Both pretty good, but not exceptional. I'd probably rate them at 7/8 outta 10.

Human Traffic had the attraction of being about boozed up, drugged up nights out. A sub-genre I really like and can relate to to a certain extent. A little slow at times, but overall a good film.

Shrooms I bought with high expectations. They were possibly just about met. Good film, although a little slow and boring at around the mid-point. The beggining was fantastic though and it also had Danny Dyer in, a favorite actor of mine. The ending was great, as well, very unexpected.

Like I hinted at, both worth a watch and both pretty cheap. The first can be picked up for like £3, the second I got on offer at HMV for £7.

Finished Buffy Season 7 and Angel Season 4, and I'm watching everything I've still got unwatched before buying Angel Season 5.

Watched The Good, The Bad and The Ugly today, and I can't believe I left that unwatched on a shelf for so long, because it's fucking excellent. When I looked at the box and saw "171 minutes" I had a bit of a "Eurrgh" moment, since as a rule films over 150 minutes tend to drag, but this was ace all the way through.

I watched Billy Elliot on my birthday.

I thought it was retarded and its ending wasn't satisfying.

Don't know why when my friends retented it at the video store the box said it was a comedy, it had some subtle humor but other than that it was a depressing movie overall.
