    Watched Running Scared last night. Hadn't seen it in a while - still good.

    Conspiracy.

    It was frightening - in a way that no horror movie could ever think of matching.

    Watched Charlie Wilson's War again this afternoon. So much greatness. The entire sequence where Charlie and Gust meet in his office is one of the greatest things in cinematic history.

    Charlie Wilson: What's the gift for?
    Gust Avrakotos: It's from the Afghan desk for doubling the budget for the Mujahadeen.
    Charlie Wilson: Well, thank you.
    Gust Avrakotos: It was nothing.
    Charlie Wilson: It's a nice bottle of scotch. Must have been hard to get.
    Gust Avrakotos: No, doubling the budget was nothing. Ten million dollars for covert ops against the Russian army is meaningless. What are you, an infant?

    PSH was amazing in that movie (of course) and I think it's just a really solid movie.

    Better than the remake. Sure the effects are laughable by todays standards but that is part of the fun. I thought I had seen this once before I am still convinced I have at least seen part because I knew some of the movie but I didn't remember 99% of it. Only that Gort shut down all electronics except for hospitals and airplanes in flight.

    Last night I was in the mood for completely mindless visual entertainment that would require nothing from me as far as understanding plot, context or theme.

    So I rented the most recent Mummy movie and sat through completely mindless visual entertainment that required nothing from me, the viewer.

    The big question is why I felt the need to watch something like that after the 2nd day of a stress-free 3-day week. I think things were so slow that by the end of the day yesterday I had become partially comatose.

    Hey the movie did what it was supposed to - let me sit in front of the TV for 2 hours with drool running down my chin while I ate chips and salsa and could point at the screen every few minutes and mumble, "Oooh - dead people," or "Cool - avalanche." (of course the movie was only an hour-and-a-half so the last 30 minutes of "Cool - avalanche" was just snow on the screen).

    I think tonight I'll make a try at rejoining the living.

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    I wanted to plan a day soon to see, "Let the Right One In," but, apparently, it has come and gone from that theater in the Keystone Mall in the matter of a week or so. Guess I'll have to wait for DVD/BD.

    The Dark Knight - I liked it. It was enjoyable, though I have a hard time buying Maggie Gyllenhaal as a romantic lead. I'm not a huge superhero guy, so I didn't find it to be earth shattering, but it was enjoyable. I can understand JR's comments on its shortfalls, and it's reach certainly did exceed its grasp. However, while "Iron Man" did more fully reach it's objective, "The Dark Knight" was still a better movie. "Iron Man" was a throw away action/adventure flick, and that's what it was trying to be. Entertaining, but not much more. "The Dark Knight" and its creators did have delusions of grandeur that they did not attain, but the product was still better than "Iron Man".

    Tropic Thunder - Not a classic by any stretch of the imagination, but I really enjoyed the movie. I laughed out loud several times. It may be one of those movies that I was just in the mood to see, and I'll like it less on future viewings, but it was better than I expected.

    Currently watching "Wall-E"...kinda slow at the moment.

    I also have "Burn After Reading" that I started watching, but wasn't in the mood for (so I watched "Tropic Thunder", instead). I'll probably watch this tonight.

    Gran Torino - Excellent Movie!

    I'm a big Clint Eastwood fan, it's probably not his best work, but I hope at age 78 he gets his first Oscar as an actor.

    I normally wouldn't suggest this, but if you get a hankerin' to watch it a second time, do so with the cast commentary on. Robert Downey Jr. does the whole commentary in-character - it's hilarious. Almost as funny as the movie itself.

    I might try it. I rented it from iTunes, so there was no commentary.

    I actually like watching commentaries, so I'm good with that.

    Yeah, I saw the remake last night (I haven't seen the original), and I thought it sucked. The movie was too slow, and the character development was pretty bad.

    El Lobo. Good movie about the earlier days of the Basque terrorist organisation ETA in the 70's. Spanish movie. Definitely recommended.

    I thought Sunshine was pretty good btw, JR. Particularly loved the music and images during the whole movie. The latter part of the movie wasn't the strongest part I agree with that, but I thought the last 5-10 min were pretty good though.

    Wow. Just saw "Doubt." I amgine it's not going to do great box office, due to it's subject matter, but, phew....gets the old noggin going. Very, good film. (And yes, there are some nitpicking stuff I didn't like, but overall, pretty strong stuff. Made me think of Oleanna, another play made into a movie that I really liked.)
