I watched Amazing Spider-Man.

I think it's better than Raimi's Spider-Man in ways I didn't expect.

But the first person shots need to GDIAF.

And I'm still not really sure about Emma Stone. I know I'd be all over it, but sometimes she seems out of place. Good for her.

I'm watching Beauty and the Beast.  Our TV in the living room has a sound issue so most stuff sounds fine but sometimes in a show or movie, someone will say a line and it won't be audible because it's supposed to heard with the other speaker that doesn't work.  So some of the songs in Beauty and the Beast come out sounding "censored".  Ha ha.  And I keep wanting to type Beauty in the Beast, which I'm certain is a whole other movie.

The Disney one?

this reminded me, I used to loooove the Beauty and the Beast tv program, you know, the one with Ron Perlman. My mom too. I just found out the dude was Ron Perlman like a couple of months ago and my mind was blown

That is blowing my mind right now.

For me, Emma Stone was the only good thing about the movie

I thought her acting was mediocre. I also thought Garfield's acting was mediocre. Also the guy who played the Lizard. Yet I still think I enjoyed it more than Raimi's, which the first two I did very much enjoy.

I remember my mom used to watch that show back in the day, never caught my interest. But now I know that was Perlman I might just look it up on the piratebay or something.

I thought her acting was mediocre.

Well... I wasn't really referring to her acting abilities

I was watching the Disney one.  I used to watch the Perlman one way back in the day.  But it's one of those shows where I don't remember much about it.  It was on Netflix streaming once upon a time but I don't know if it's still there.

Was re-watching the Matrix earlier and am re-watching Pitch Black right now.

No, I always knew it was him.  It's the first role I knew him for.  My cousins used to watch Silk Stalkings, but I never got the USA channel when it was airing.  (I didn't realize it ever even came out on CBS until just now.)

Until Sons of Anarchy, the only thing I knew Perlman from was the voice of the intro and outro of the Fallout games

I knew him from B&tB, then Hellboy, then for his voicework (I ♥ his voice), then in the movies Alien Resurrection and Cronos, then for Sons of Anarchy, then for some other movies that actually deserved to be named even less than Alien Resurrection.  Perlman was one half of why I watched Sons to begin with.  The other half consisting of Katey Sagal and motorcyles.

First thing I remember him from was Beauty and the Beast too...although I saw "Ice Pirates" when I was a kid and he was in that, I don't remember him from it.

Am watching Commando now.  He's about the drop that dude off the cliff right now.  "I lied."
One of Arnold's all-time greats. I nearly whizzed myself when I found it at Walmart in a three packed bluray with Predator and Terminator for ten bucks.

I remember Perlman as Vincent from BatB...my dad watched it a lot because he liked Linda Hamilton. I always thought it was fun to figure out who he was in his movies because he's almost constantly unrecognizable apart from his size and voice.

I watched Dredd last night. I liked it pretty well...it's such a far cry from the cinematic disasterpiece that was Stallone's Judge Dredd. Eomer/Bones did a good job in his role...too bad it didn't do well enough to guarantee some sequels. While I believe they overdid the "slo-mo" effect (for that matter, the F-word, too...without that one figure of speech--is it even a mere word anymore?--I could probably count all the other werty derds on my hands), it was nicely paced, quite violent, and totally satisfying.

Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

I watched You've Got Mail.  Sorta.  For the 10,000th time.  Except I finally bought it on DVD and got it just today.  So the VHS can kinda retire.  Although disappointed that the songs are not captioned or subtitled in any way.  I like to think in the event I go completely or mostly deaf, my DVDs and shit can accomidate me.  So I tend to be annoyed by little things like that.

John Dies At the End

There's some neat ideas in this movie but dont waste your time. And John doesn't die at the end.

Yeah.  As in music that plays in the background and sets the mood, not like Tom Hanks singing or something.

I think that might have been one of, if not the last movie Meg Ryan did before transforming herself into a monstrosity with the modern miracle of cosmetic surgery.

Ha ha, yeah.  Merla, Schmoo, and I always talk about that when I play that movie.


I re-watched X-Men and X2 recently after not seeing either one in years.  And 40 minutes or so into X-Men, our dvd player went kaput so I had to go buy a new one.  I never really paid attention until today just how godawful the wigs were.  And Wolverine is so tall.  I think Jackman did a good job but yeah.  Movie Storm is just bleh.  I'm not the biggest fan of Halle Berry to begin with but neither do I think she's a complete shit actor, I just think they needed someone who could something better with the role.  The dude playing Cyclops needed a nice clean shave.  The stubble looks like a dirt on his face.  Gross.  And Mystique needed her white dress.  Didn't like the naked look at all.  Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart were outstanding as ever though.  I think they really carried these movies more than anyone else.

The Last Airbender.

This movie had problems. I'm not going to touch on the whole racebending thing that got many people's panties in a twist. (Twisted panties? Hello nurse! Man, I'm strange.) because this was the wrong cast even if every mother fucker on that show HAD been white or Indian. And that's because no one in this cast could act! Or at least none of the main characters could.

It might be easier to say what I did like. The production design was good, and the FXs were good. That's about it. This movie was written badly, directed badly, edited badly, and acted badly. It was just bad. I knew the whole thing was in trouble when there were lots of voice overs explaining what was going on. There is a rule in movies that you never tell something that you could show...and this movie was telling me a lot. Then there was also exposition spouted at almost random by characters. They were trying to cram too much, into a small time frame and it showed. I mean we are all over the place and things are happening before we get a chance to care about them happening. Like the Princess with the white hair...we are never given time or a reason to care about her, so when she makes a noble sacrifice the audience doesn't care because they were not given a reason to care. It just bad...I think Beck said that Iron Man 2 should be shown to film students how NOT to make a movie. I disagree...this film should be.

I saw this cheesy romance made-for-TV movie called The Christmas Kiss, which was decent for what it was.

And then I saw this thing called Vegancised or Vegansized or something or other where the film maker attempts to get three people to become vegans.  It was also decent.

Die Hard

and I learned three things about Die Hard I didn't know.

1. That this was suppose to be a sequel to a 1968 movie called The Detective starring Frank Sinatra, and that movie was based on a novel. And that Die Hard was offered to Frank, who turned it down.

2. That Die Hard is also based on a book, that was a sequel to the above novel.

3. That when Frank passed they wanted Arnie for the part and actually started to rewrite the script to make it a sequel to Commando.

I've been curious about the book for a while.  I would be interested in reading it to get insight into the movie but it doesn't sound fatastic.

I'm glad they finally went with Bruce Willis.  He really nailed the part of John McClane.
