    Extract

    Written by Mike Judge, the same guy who created King Of The Hill, Office Space so I figured I would give it a try. It was a pretty different story, but in a good way. It wasn't a long movie but it sort of dragged on at the end. There were a few times I figured the movie would end, but then something else would happen.

    The Age of Stupid

    It is a documentary style move about how global warming is going to end our civilisation. It uses real footage from the past and present to illustrate the point. It was interesting to see some of the "proof" and the scare tactics they use to get everyone to change their ways. If the movie as true we are all screwed, but hey we are supposed to die on December 21, 2012 so let's enjoy our time.

    Not expecting much from this because I mean really it is John Travolta and Robin Williams in a movie about Robin Williams becoming a father and I mean he is like 60 as is so it is ridiculous, but they do make many a joke about how his age and his grandfather looks. Not a good movie, not the worst. I would say pass.

    Fool's Gold

    Had stupid Mathew McCounaghy movie written all over it, and it was. It reminded me of Sahara in that he is a treasure hunter looking for an ancient lost treasure. Also had Kate Hudson and few other recognisable faces but it was just a very typical movie, no real substance, not great acting and just not really worth the time.

    All About Steve

    I didn't think it was Sandra Bullock in this movie until I played it. I thought it was Kristen Bell or whatever that chicks name is from [b[Forgetting Sarah Marshall[/b] so seeing Sandra Bullock playing that character was a little weird considering the last movie I saw her in was Blind Side which she of course won the best actress award at the oscars. This character was a lot different from her academy one, and not in a good way. This whole movie just reeked of bad writing, bad acting, and stupid story.

    Up In The Air

    Interesting. I thought it was going to be about something a little different. I didn't know much going into the movie other than it had been nominated for a bunch of oscars but didn't take home many if any. George Clooney of course played himself, like he does in every film and the leading ladies did their parts well. It was well acted and I quite enjoyed it. The ending was a little predictable, but most movies are so I don't expect much.

    Julie & Julia

    I went into this movie expecting to hate it. It seemed like a long winded movie about a couple of chicks who cook, I mean who wants to see that really? Turns out I did. It was more than I expected and very well acted. The story kept me entertained and I couldn't predict anything that was going to happen. Meryl Streep's voice in this movie was super annoying though. I assume the real Julia Child's talked like that so it was supposed to be there but I just had a hard time not hating her character because of the stupid voice. It sort of reminded me of Mos Def in 16 Blocks when he had a high pitched voice that sounded very fake and didn't really serve a purpose other than to annoy the audience, you wonder why not many people have seen that movie.

    Uncle Buck

    Caught this one on TV. It had been a while since I last saw it. Still stands the test of time as far as the story and acting but man are those clothes so out of date. It made me laugh anytime they were at the high school and all the students were dressed like total morons, but hey when a movie was made in the 80's it didn't have much hope, I am sure 20-30 years from now when we look back at the movies made around now we will think the same thing, when we are all wearing single coloured onsies.

    Sleepers

    Another movie I caught on the good ole TV. And another one that still stands the test of time. I forgot that Brad Pitt was in this movie so that was a surprise, I had also been watching Entourage a few days before and they mentioned the movie in season 5 so I thought it was a little funny how it came on a few days later. For those that haunt seen it, the movie is about a group of 4 teenage kids who commit a tupped crime and get sent to boys prison where they are sexually abused and then it catches up with them about 20 years after and you see what is up. Don't want to spoil too much but if you haven't seen it yet, go out and do so.

    Jennifer's Body

    I heard about this movie a while ago because there were some "topless" pictures of Megan Fox that came out from the shooting of this movie, but she is never topless in the movie so don't expect that, but what you can expect is a poorly acted role by Fox, which we all already do anyways, but she does make out with Amanda Seyfried who I find very gorgeous so I liked the movie for that alone. If you are expecting much else you are going to be disappointed.

    Fight Night

    Not sure if this movie was ever released or what but I am sure it didn't make too much money. It is about a boxing manager who rigs fights in the underground bare knuckled boxing. He ends up meeting a chick who can fight well and he promotes her and wins lots of money, cue falling in love, cue old promoter trying to kill new one, cue everything you would expect out of a movie called Fight Night or possibly Rigged, but not worth downloading, renting or searching the net for.

    G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra

    I heard nothing but bad reviews or just unsatisfied reviews at best so I had little hope I would like it but I did enjoy it. It was a somewhat stupid story and really weird but I liked the action, I liked the weapons and I liked the hot girls in tight clothing.

    Yep. Especially if you're one those people who like to think. It's a really good thinking movie, if you think about it.

    Does watching "The Pacific" on HBO count as a movie or TV? 10 part mini-series from the same people that brought us "Band of Brothers".
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    TV

    90% of movies that are made don't have patience to develop a story the way TV can.

    That is not a slam at movies btw, they have time restraints, but if you want a truely developing story line tv is usually the way you have to find it.

    This goes along with what others have previously said and I tend to agree with, and that is that this past decade doesn't hold a candle to the 90's with regards the quality of movies, but what sometimes doesn't get mentioned in such a discussion is just how much better television has gotten.

    Shows like the Sopranos, the Wire, Battlestar Galactica, Mad Men, the Shield, etc, etc, etc. make up most of the cream of the crop in storytelling in the 2000's. To say nothing of mini series such as Band of Brothers.

    Saw The Ghost Writer over the weekend and I knew what to expect going in. A small old fashioned thriller. I wanted to really like it and I liked the tone, pace, setting. However the story never really drew me in, so overall it didn't do it for me

    Looking forward to seeing Greenberg probably next weekend

    The Inglorious Bastards

    Decent movie. The only thing that I knew going in, was that Tarantino's film had almost nothing based on it. But if you liked Inglourious Basterds, you should check out The Inglorious Bastards.

    Did go to see Greenberg . Didn't really enjoy it. It was very real, just not very entertaining.
