    Dark Knight finally made it to the cheap seats here. I can't wait to go see it a second time :)

    Forgot that I watched the theatrical cut of Ghost Rider last night - what a freakin' sloppy stinker that was! Horrible dialogue, weird, affected acting, annoying camerawork, dodgy special effects. What's not to like? Oh, yeah - everything!

    Yeah, it sounds more like a remake than a sequel. I don't care if they pull out something that doesn't make sense - as long as the flick is as kick ass as the first!

    Transporter 3 coming out in a few weeks, too! More Frank Martin action!

    Watched Donnie Darko again on Halloween. Man that movie is F'ed up. I missed the beginning this time though. I remember I needed it to make sense the first time and even that was a shaky kind of sense.

    Also saw Dark Knight when it first came out. Runs a little long but very good. Got a BT of Iron Man and re-watched it the other day. Such a great movie and doesn't need the "for a comic-book movie" caveat. Only problem was the version I got has the Farsi subtitles in German. I don't speak Farsi or read German so I don't actually remember what the hell they were saying. Considering those phrases are usually followed by guns I think I get the gist...

    As awesome as Donnie Darko is, it is a dense film and Richard Kelly grew so familiar with his invented mythology that he forgot to express it to the audience. He kinda sloppily rectified it with the Director's Cut, but then people complain that it's too in your face.

    But yeah - it only made a sort of emotional sense to me at first. Without the supplemental materials on the DVD, there's no freakin' way I would have figured out all the subtext about "The Manipulated Living", "The Manipulated Dead" and all that sh*te.

    LOVE me some Donnie Darko action. I was lucky in that the first version I watched was the Director's Cut. After watching the original version, I can totally see why a lot of people bash on it.

    As embarrassed as I am to say it, I even liked Southland Tales. There is ZERO reason why I should like this movie. I genuinely hate a majority of the main actors (Dwayne Johnson, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Timberlake, Seann William Scott), but for some reason, Kelly pulled it all together in his own special f'd up way. As I was watching it, I was thinking "Ok, this is just too weird, even for me." But then when Timberlake did the Killers - "All These Things" segment, something just clicked for me and I got it. I even wore a similar blood stained shirt for halloween last year, but nobody got the reference, just thought I was bloody.

    I hate the Directors cut. It is like hey here is everything with no subtext. Donnie Darko is in my top 3 favorite movies of all time. I also did all the website stuff and bought the script, so I had a lot of info. I think the beauty of the movie is that it is left open to interpretation.
  • edited November 2008
    I actually don't like the director's cut of Donnie Darko. I like the way things were left open for speculation in the original version. In comparison, the director's cut took you by the hand and pointed out the story for you, and I'm not too fond of that. I don't need 'closure' in a movie, I'm fine with a lot of it being left t my own interpretation (one of the reasons why I loved The Fountain).

    For me neither cut of the great double-D is perfect. The original is a bit too subtle and fails to get across certain ideas that Kelly clearly wanted the viewer to know. And the Director's Cut just awkwardly inserted an overload of information without much grace. I do like plenty of the added scenes, though - so I'll watch either version at the drop of a hat.

    And The Fountain is the shiznit!

    Random movie thought, but at work I just called a client named Pete, and all I could think about was Simon Pegg staring up a staircase saying "Peeeeete?".

    That is all.

    Yeah, the end of that movie was bloody hilarious!(get it?:D)

    The last movie I watched was Zack and Miri Make A Porno. It was awesome, as most Kevin Smith movies are. It's definitely my favorite comedy this year. It was also pretty damn raunchy, so leave the kids at home, people!

    Braindead is fantastic. 'I kick arse for the Lord!' That and the pudding-eating scene never fails to gross me out.

    Right now, I'm going through the Lost series with my cutie. We started from season 1 and are hoping to finish in time for Lost season 4 which comes out in December. :/

    I know it's not a movie, but that's what I'm watching, so HA!.

    Last night I watched Hulk. I wasn't sure if I wanted to watch it based on the last movie, which I thought sucked, but since I was pleasantly surprised by Iron Man and I love Ed Norton as an actor and I used to have a little boy crush on Liv Tyler, I thought I would give it a go. I thought this movie was awful. Tyler delivered one of the worst acting performances of all time and Norton was well short of his usual genious. The storyline was thin at best and to enjoy the action scenes you had to totally suspend your disbelief, which I was unable to do. SPOILER ALERT: The only thing I found interesting about this movie was the second to last scene when Tony Stark walks into the bar and informs General Ross that they are putting a team together, hinting that an Avengers movie is on the way. END SPOILER

    Hulk is a steaming pile of garbage.

    I started watching Lost Season 1 before season 3 came back on air, expecting it to take me 2 weeks.....I finished all of Season 1 and Season 2 in 4.5 days during Holiday break from work the other year. I just couldn't stop watching, not for food, sleep, or even *gasp* videogames.

    You've been warned.

    I went to see Zack and Miri make a porno Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I absolutely love that movie. It was awesome seeing Jason Mewes being someone other than Jay, and ten times funnier if you ask me. Because of that I have the Kevin Smith bug so I went out and got the new "Evening With Kevin Smith" good story in there about Bruce Willis. Gonna give Casino Royale a watching tonight in celebration of the Quantum baby! WOO!

    I was seriously addicted to Lost for the first two seasons after that I kinda stopped watching for a bit. I'm currently playing catch up, halfway through Season 3~ but I don't think I'll be able to watch that much in such a short period with all the Anime I'm watching this season (12 different series :p)

    Watched the secret last week, was a pretty good movie, although the ending left me wondering about what happened to the mother when the daughter returned, before that was The Love Guru, justin timberlake is a better actor than a musician, pretty funny, better than I expected. I dug the joker rendition at the end. Also not something I've seen recently but a great movie that's under the radar Southland Tales, from the guy who did Donnie Darko, stars The Rock, Justin Timberlake and Stiffler (can't remember his real name, sean somethin.) It deals with time travel, drugs and religion, pretty crazy stuff. Also the weirdest role I have ever seen John Lovitz or Cheri Otari in.
