Saw The 40 Year Old Virgin yesterday and thought it was an ok movie. Best deserves a 6 out of 10 for me.

Then today, I finally caught The Legend of Beggar Vance on TV and found it slightly above average. 6.5 out of 10.
Go Floyd!
Haught Tension - The biggest pile of shite ever committed to celluloid.

The film started off okay, the death scene at the beginning was a little silly, but I was willing to let that slide, but the so called twist made no logical sense whatsoever to the point of being beyond stupid.

This made the plotline of Plan 9 from Outer Space look like a masterpiece.  

This is your typical Eurocrap no logic horror movie that Argentio is famous for, where the gore is turned on full, but major plot holes are turned up even fuller.

I can't believe this has got rave reviews from critics and moviegoers; it baffles me when the same people slag off Paul W Anderson and Uwe Bowl yet praise this pile of donkey shite.

I don't mind a horror film that stretches the logic barrier, I love David Cronenberg’s strange and weird tales, but when this film does a Fight Club out of the blue, your left shouting at the screen WHAT???

Instead of being tense and scared, you just sit there dumb founded at how laughably bad this movie is. This film should be up for ridicule on the MST3K, it’s that bad.
Electra Glide In Blue -

A very unusual 70s cop movie, in a way that it's very homo erotic rather than the hard boiled cops that they usually had in the 70s, still good though.

I watched the following movies with my nephew over the weekend.

Evil Dead II -

Excellent as ever after all these years, still funny but not as extreme as the first Evil Dead.

Army of Darkness -

IMO this will never be part of the Evil Dead series as this was aimed more at the kids market like everything else was in the early 90s and the same thing is happening now.  It was okay but still not as good as ED or ED II.

Blade -

Still cool, and the beginning is still excellent, but with bad CGI effects.

Blade II -

Even better than the first film.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show -

Funny as ever, Tim Curry is brilliantly cast as Frank.

Misery -

Like Silence of the Lambs this movie verges on campness even when it's supposed to be seriously scary but you end up laughing, like the scene where he uses his leg to trip her up.

Psycho -

The way horror movies should always be made, where everything is brightly lit, no false jumps, no messing, when something happens it happens, out of all those modern films he saw above, the only scene that made him jump was when the detective.....

Bubba Ho Tep -

Still funny, And Campbell and Davis are excellent in their rolls as Elvis and JFK.
Thumbsucker(Mike Mills): ***1/2
Scream 2
Scream 3
Lords of Dogtown
Bourne Supremacy
House of 1000 Corpses
The Lost Boys, classic!
Everything Is Illuminated(Schrieber, 05): ***1/2/****
Robots: Okay Film

Family Guy Movie: Awesome! It was hilarious.

Bubble Boy: Okay film.

Holes: Pretty good.

Bad Boys: Good action film

Sandlot 1: Okay film. I still love it back from when I first saw it in 1995.

Red vs. Blue Season 3: Funny stuff. Go to Gamestop and watch the first two seasons before you see this.

My Son and I both watched it.  It was not as scary as hoped, but both of us thought it was very good film.  Not being as graphic and devilish with the head-twist, etc...was a bit of a letdown though.  I was hoping for a movie that scared the crap outta me.
To Kill A Mockingbird - Excellent movie,
Awesome DVD as well
Well I neither loved it nor hated it... it was just a reasonable way to pass a couple of hours. Must check out the extras though as they look quite good.

It seems Love it or Hate it mostly.

If you like Wes Andersons other films(such as The Life Aquatic and Royal Tenenbaums) then you'll probably like it.
I saw Lord Of War last night:
here are my thoughts:
Based on actual events, Nicholas Cage stars as Yuri Orlov, a globetrotting arms dealer, while trying to stay one step ahead of a relentless interpol agent.
While nothing great, the film is quite good, with good performances from the cast.
I'd say, don't listen to the critics, go see it.
It probably should have been trimmed by at least 15 minutes, since it runs at a long 122 minutes, but it's rarely ever boring.

See Rushmore and The Graduate now!
The Longest Yard(2005 version)was funny until *spoiler* caretaker died, then it just dragged and draggged.
He died in The Original as well, but at least it didn't drag after.
I finally saw Emily Rose. Pretty good film if you want to waste two hours.
lock, stock and two smoking barrels -not as funny as advertised, though a good movie none the less.

hitchikers guide to the galaxies. - different than I expected, pleasingly entertaining on the level of Mars Attacks.
I enjoyed both of them.
I just watched The Longest Yard. That was the funniest shit I've ever saw.
and incase you don't know, the great Hunter S. Thompson killed himself in his aspen home in February,
Watch out for 2 cameo's in Fear and Loathing.
I recently watched Mindhunters. That was an awesome film. Don't believe the critics on that one. It's like a cross of Saw and Assault on Precinct 13 (Remake).

As for The Longest Yard, I'll try to watch it tonight, considering I have a hockey tournament and a football game.
Sin City.
Withnail & I.
Gumball Rally - Very entertaining you could call it a prototype to the popular Cannonball Run, it's a shame they didn't do a sequel where they had to race back to New York.

Junkman - Not as good as Gone in 60 seconds, but had some excellent car crashes, yet the story was non existent.
Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas - Awesome movie.
R.I.P. Hunter S. Thompson

I'll see that or Everything Is Illuminated next.
I still have a slight bit of a cold, but I'm healing, I can talk much better now though.
Layer Cake:- Very good suprising gangster movie, that doesn't follow the same usual cliched path like many other wannabie Guy Ritchie gangster flicks.

Contantine- Bad bad bad bad, a very bad rip off to The Prophecy with bad acting, bad story, and very cheesy weapons against evil.

Don't worry though,I should be better by tomorrow hopefully.

oh, and in case you haven't seen it (or heard it), they ARE going to make SCREAM 4, but with no Neve Campbell or Wes Craven, but they will have David & Courtney Cox-Arquette (i saw this at Bloody-Disgusting.com)
I watched Scream on demand.

I just watched "Stealth" at the cinemas.

Exceeded my expectations! 11/10

Top Gun meets Behind Enemy Lines but BETTER!! Sound and Action was awesome! especially all the crash landing scenes! Jessica Biel and Josh Lucas Rules!

I also noticed a few cameos of Australian actors and model...

Richard Roxburgh (Mission Impossible 2)
Megan Gale (Australia's Top model export)

and there was someone else, couldn't remember his name?? He played the doctor towards the end who was supposed to give an injection to Josh Lucas' character after he crash landed safely in Alaska. Can anyone give me his name??

I watched Fever Pitch (A-) and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (C+).
All I've watched in the past few days is LOST!  I'm so addicted.

Nah, I thought Fat Butt and Pancake Head or the one with the PSP and the Terry Shiavo case was the funnier ones. Goobacks were a good one though.
Air Force One - Still good if slightly over patriotic, good to see two actors who will later find fame in either CSI or 24.

Even though it's not a film I watch South Park, the Goobacks episode, this has got to be the funniest episode so far.
Crash was a good film. Highly reccomend it.
40 Year Old Virgin - The funniest movie I've seen in a long long time.
I watched Closer. That was pretty good.
Under Siege - A good brainless action film with even more violence than in the UK.

Under Siege II - Same as above with even more violence than the UK version.
Sahara which was ok with a bucket of popcorn...
The Constant Gardner - Very good film, not as good as City Of God but close.
8.5/10
I'm watching There's Something About Mary.
The Longest Yard - Watched this with my lass, because she wanted to see this before the remake, after watching it, she really enjoyed it, that she doesn't want to watch the remake.
   
Outland - A very good sci fi thriller starring Sean Connery, excellent story, the action is brill, and the final sequence is very tense.
 
Stargate: The Director's Cut - Still fun, which showed the talents of Devlin and Emmerich before they went downhill.
 
Flash Gordon (1980) - This is the ultimate fun action adventure sci fi since the original Star Wars trilogy, a film that doesn't take itself seriously, the special effects a great, the story is great, the the action is brill, and of course the Queen Soundtrack rocks.
- -
My last rental was Sahara and the last DVD that I've bought was Ong Bak.
Theatre:
Junebug - A very funny indie with an excellent cast.

DVD:
Taxi Driver - Scorsese's masterpiece, My number 2 of all-time.

To be more accurate he was good. The guy must have killed a few dozen stuntmen. The movie itself was typical martial arts awful...hehehe

I heard that movie was really good.

Last film(s) you watched thread
Last films I watched were

Starship Troopers - Just fancied watching this movie again, I still think this is Verhoven's best film since Total Recall.

Tango & Cash - One of those films that I know I've seen but somehow forgotten what it's all about, so re-watched it, and it was okay, couldn't understand the logic of Bryon James speaking badly in an English accent.

The Hustler - This has to be one of the coolest movie of all time, the story is excellent the performances by Paul Newman, Jackie Gleeson, George C Scott, and Piper Laurie are top notch.  
Well worth owning.
