I decided to go see a movie, and I went and saw The Town and it was pretty good. Kudos to Ben Affleck for both his directing skills, and weirdly enough, being really fucking sexy to boot. And I don't usually think he's very attractive, but in this movie I wanted to jump his bones through the entire flick.

And Jon Hamm, sexy mofo to the extreme. I loved seeing Don Draper all scruffy and tough guy. It was awesome.

I recommend it. Thumbs up!

Was an amazing movie. I loved it so much. Everyone in it was so good, and the movie was directed so intimately - so nakedly - that it just sucked you in for every minute. I highly recommend it to everyone. Oscar material for sure.

I still don't exactly know how I feel about the film. It totally blew my mind. If you like mind bending films, definitely go see it, and see it on the big screen. A lot of the awesomeness of the film would be lost on a TV.

This is a 10 minutes very well spent.

The first trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!


I am so excited.

Dad called me last night and wanted to know if I'd go see The A-Team with him and Mom today. I went and it was a really fucking fun movie! It was funny, and if you're an action fan, the action was great. It was silly, yes, but a lot of fun. Very much like a caper movie. Two thumbs up!

was fucking amazing. You all should see it.

I went to see Sherlock Holmes with Mom & Dad today; it was very entertaining. I recommend it.

We had about 30 minutes to kill before we had to be at the movie theater, so we drove around Buellton for a bit and came upon some new friends:

clicky to meet them! )

Oh WOW. I am in the car with Dad. We just saw Avatar in 3D and it was fucking amazing. If you haven't seen it yet, go see it! And find someplace that has it in 3D! It was like you were right there in their world.

Easy. The soundtrack for the film Amelie, with a combination of the beautiful score by Yann Tiersen and a few songs as well from the past. It's almost the perfect album.

Embed won't work.

I just love this scene. It's perfect. I wish I could find a video that goes another 20 seconds where he lifts her up and takes her "to the bed". I might look for it later when I get to work.

Heart attack while out on his daily walk. That's so sad.

I would like to give a tribute to him in icon form.

It's a sad day indeed for us children of the 80s. RIP John. I came of age watching your movies.

Either Mrs. Daschwood from Ang Lee's Sense & Sensibility or Molly Weasley from the Harry Potter movies.

Star Trek!

Star Trek was a lot of fun. I loved it. It had great action, great special effects and Simon Pegg as Scotty, John Cho (Harold!) as Sulu and Zachary Quinto as Spock were great. The kid who played Chekov was good too.

I think hardcore trekkies will be very angry though.

But I, as a casual fan, loved it.

And what day would be complete without pictures!

My day...

Oh my god I am so tired.

Today I went out to this place in Santa Barbara called Chubbies to get a burger for lunch. They are a fabulous hole in the wall with really greasy and fantastic burgers. But they also have:

Chicken Beast. I would love to see that.

They also attract random dirty hipsters:

So I went to go see Watchmen. I got there really early (I drove right from work) and I still had an hour to wait (I had bought my ticket on Wednesday from Fandango for the 7:40pm show) and the manager came out and took pity on me being all alone in the line waiting for 7:40 and let me in to the 7:00pm show. So that was cool.

This was a really bloody, violent and gory movie. And yet I counted about 5 children aged 5 and under with their parents, one being a little girl in the row right in front of me. 45 minutes in to the show, she got freaked and started crying and they had to leave. I swear, people are so stupid. And then there these two old women (I mean 70s) sitting right behind me and they kept fucking talking! I mean seriously, what were they even doing there? They didn't get the movie at all and I had to tell them to shut the fuck up twice, and they finally did.

Overall, I really enjoyed the movie. I think though, if you are not a fan of the comic book, it will seem over long and not make a whole lot of sense, even though the movie followed the comic nearly scene for scene (except for the Black Freighter stuff, but that's being released on March 24th in a separate DVD, which is really cool). As we were leaving, a lot of non-nerdy folk were complaining about how long and stupid it was, but all the nerds were cheering. So there you go. The actor who played Rorschach was fucking AMAZING (I think he's a child actor now old - I need to check IMDB) and I have to give Billy Crudup mad props for having the courage to spend 2/3 of his scenes in the movie completely naked with his cock hanging out.

Oh! And people are 12 and kept giggling through the cock scenes and the sex scenes. Some people even laughed at really inappropriate times and that bugs me. I hate stupid people.

So I actually have only one complaint about the movie itself: The music. The director was really heavy handed with the choice of pop music songs (including Ride of the Valkyries during this epic Vietnam War scene...I mean, come on...really?) and IMHO, it detracted from the movie. But other than that, I was really pleased. Carla Gugino was flawless as always and the guy who played Night Owl was really good too. So I enjoyed the film.

On my drive home, I took the back road that goes around the back of the AFB and then past the prison, and about 6 deer ran in front of my car in a herd, but at least I was only going 35 (for that very reason) and was able to stop in time, and I was the only person on the road that late. But I really dread the day I can't stop in time and I smash into one of those large beasts.

And last, but not least, I saw this church sign on the ride home tonight, and had to take a picture of it.

Goodnight everyone. I am exhausted. Oh, and I deleted the Harry Potter voice post because it was seriously lame.

title or description

Cinematical has just received this exclusive teaser poster for this summer's hotly-anticipated Land of the Lost, starring Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Anna Friel and Jorma Taccone. Based on the classic television series, Land of the Lost was directed by Brad Silberling and follows a has-been scientist (Ferrell), a crack-smart research assistant (Friel) and a redneck survivalist (McBride) who get sucked through time and spit out into an alternate universe -- one that finds them running from dinosaurs and weird reptiles called Sleestaks, while trying to figure a way out of this hybrid dimension

Uses all the lulzworthy images we've been seeing all day.

Went and saw "W" tonight. It was definitely an Oliver Stone flick, a little too long, and Josh Brolin was outstanding. If he doesn't get nominated for an Oscar for this I would be completely shocked. Still don't know whether I liked it or not, as it's Oliver Stone and sometimes you have to digest it first. I can only think of a few Oliver Stone films that I knew instantly that I loved. JFK was one of them, and The Doors (especially because I was in it), and Salvador were instant loves. Some took a while.

Anyway, you should see it. It's quite....fascinating.
