    Just saw the trailer for Green Lantern...ugh. Was the casting director high when they picked Ryan Reynolds? Ryan Reynolds?? He has about as much charisma as a tree stump. And he looked ridiculously uncomfortable and awkward in the fight scenes...almost as if he was suspended from the ceiling by wires and asked to kick at things that aren't really there...hmm...

    El chico que miente. The boy who lies.

    A venezuelan film, really shamefull stuff, one of the worst acting i have ever seen.

    Brother. Hermano was much worthy to watch, talking about recent stuff produced here, which usually sucks balls and really needs way more impulse.

    Caddyshack. I don´t know why I sat down to watch this film. I don´t really know what to say about it. It was bad and good at the same time.

    I'm really enjoying Game of Thrones on HBO. They put together a top notch cast and the writing so far has been faithful to the book and even tightens it up which I think is a good thing. Costumes and set are gritty and convincing.

    The matte paintings are the only things that need work unfortunately. Nothing pulls you out of a story faster than a bad matte painting. Bad in the sense you go, oh look a matte painting! While it may be a beautiful painting it should be invisible to the viewer if it does its job right.

    Enjoying it too. The cast is great! Nice to see so many Brits in a big HBO production. Sean Bean seems a bit er... 'sturdier' than his Sharpe days, but it works for the role and his Sheffield accent suits the 'Northerness' of the Starks. Paul Inglis and Gemma Jackson have done a superb job in the AD dept.

    Sadly Dire Wolves died out 10,000 years a go, so getting one as a puppy might be tricky!

    I never saw any matte paintings. But then I didn't look very hard either...

    I like Game of Thrones too. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the Dothraki arc. I think the actor they have for Daenerys is really bland and doesn't succeed at portraying her very well. And I feel like there have been quite a few character defining moments that have been left out. I felt both sex scenes which were pretty important for the plot were dumbed down quite a bit. And I missed the part where Viserys ends up walking behind the Khalasar. Obviously they're gonna have to speed things up a bit, but still... Other than that I like it pretty much. (And yeah, the dire wolves aren't exactly awe-inspring, but I guess it can't be helped )

    The last film I watched was THX 1138. It was alright.
    Though after watching the special features, I feel like I'd appreciate it more a second time around.
    (Definitely glad that George Lucas chose to extend the shorter version he did while at USC.)

    Super. It was awesome, much better than Kickass. Emma Page and Rainn WIlson turned in great performances. I just wish they would stop it with the god damn badly hand drawn elements in these kids of Indie films.

    Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion shorts-A lot of people are familiar with this man through his movie work, but after seeing these for the first time; it makes you wonder why he never made more of them.

    SUPER!

    Holy eff, I feel like there's gotta be a thread on this somewhere. This was easily one of the darkest movies I've seen in a long time. Like, I can't in good conscience call it a "dark comedy", although that's kinda the idea.

    For those unfamiliar, it stars Rainn Wilson (Yeah, Dwight from the office), Ellen Page (As a comic book store clerk riiiiight) Liv Tyler (as the love interest/damsel in distress) and Kevin Bacon as a drug kingpin in whatever town the protagonist lives in.

    Punchline: Protagonist (Wilson) goes kinda bat shit and becomes a costumed crimefighter with hilarious, bloody and darkly messed-up results.

    It's fucking... dark. I mean, it certainly has funny and quirky elements, but it ends on a very somber note for the viewer.

    Also, I gotta say, I TOTALLY underestimated Rainn Wilson. He shows some serious depth here as a guy teetering on the edge of sanity and heroism.

    *EDIT* Ha, just saw the above post by Timpatkins. Yes, great performances all around. Even Kevin Bacon as the slimy-yet-charismatic-enough-to-evoke-sympathy-while-still-being-a-totally-evil-dude thing was... unexpected.

    Six String Samurai.

    It was surprisingly good.. Though cheesy, which was I suspect on purpose. And that made it good. Rather wish there had been a sequel to it.

    ^ Liked Super a whole lot and Game of Thrones is just getting better every week, go HBO..

    Just watched..

    X-Men First Class Pretty groovy actually. I was kinda surprised by how not sucky this was, I blame the suckfest that was X3 for lowering my expectations.

    Odd film, felt like I should be watching it in French, with subtitles.
    At times it feels like an unusually violent Chemical Brothers music video but at it's best it reminds me of something Luc Besson might have done back in the day, like when he was directing Angel-A, Leon or Nikita not when he was producing crap sequels to The Transporter..my limited html skills mean you'll have to highlight, right click then search Google for those, sorry. You should do it though because they're magnificent. Not Transporter though, it's not.

    Watch it anyway, it's not an "action flick" it's actual "Cinema".

    I just watched X-Men First Class as well. I agree, it was quite a good movie. I didn't like the other xmen movies as much. I didn't hate them, but i felt like this seemed much better written. I really didn't think i would like it so much, but yes, it was very good :]

    X-Men First Class - the only thing that bothered me is that shortly after Magneto says "I've been at the mercy of men just following orders." - Azazel and Riptide join Magneto, when they were just following Sebastian's orders, the man who killed Magnetos mother.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about? I would've thought Magneto would be a kind of pissed at those two, being in cohorts with Sebastian and all.

    Well the Magneto thing with the two joining him you have to remember that Magneto separates "man and mutant". Azazel and Riptide are mutants and therefore been under the same persecution he faced. The "following orders" remark is simply pointed at man and the soldiers subjecting him to all the pain he had growing up. Sure Kevin Bacon was the true cause in a sense but there's a clear line he's drawing as Magneto always has with Mutants.


    On the note of the movie Xmen First Class though I absolutely loved it. I was watching it and I felt "This is what an Xmen movie should be" all the others just felt like catering to fanboys with no real decent foundational story. This one worked from the ground up and set everything very well. Drew you in to the characters I especially liked. Especially the Magneto Xavier relationship. At the end when "you know what" happened with the bullet I just pointed my hand to the screen saying. "Wow. That was good. That was a really good move" and explains a lot on Magneto's constant leniency towards Xavier whenever he could easily kill him in many situations.

    Started watching the anime Princess Tutu. I was a bit sceptical at first, despite good reviews, because it looked like just another magical girl shoujo series... But it's actually quite good. Nice blend of cute, funny, surreal and downright bizarre.

    Deathly Hallows part 2. The purist in me hated it story-wise but the action, cinematic shots and visual effects were ace like the rest of the HP movies. Acting was mediocre at best and cringe-worthy 90% of the time. I think there was only one time someone laughed during the entire movie and it was at fat Ron in the epilogue, heh!

    Let me in, which i thought was pretty nice and dark. It's always entertaining to see a vampire movie that doesn't go off the cliché route, they pulled that off well. Loved the photogrpahy in it, and that last scene in the pool. If anyone's seen the original Swedish version, could they tell me if the remake does justice to it? Thinking of seeing that too, but it always feels redundant to see the same story twice, if you know what i mean?

    Not as good as Iron Man in my opinion but well done for an origin story. I've never liked Joe Johnstons pacing as a director it always seems off to me.
    I was a marvel fan as a kid and I am loving all the movies, even the bad ones. Can't wait for Josh Whedons Avengers next year.

    Nobody is a bigger Avenger hater than me, but Joss Wheadon may trump my hatery. I'm sure even Dr. Doom would want to watch it.

    A good movie, for a change. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was better then I expected.
