I saw The Returner, DOA and Howl's Moving Castle. I loved Howl's Moving Castle just like most other Miyazaki's films.

I saw the 1997 remake of "House on Haunted Hill" on tv today.



I'll admit it, I liked it. It was weird and cheesy and goofy and I had fun with it. It would have been more fun if I'd had a few friends over but I've got a wicked cold and don't want to share it around.



The original was better of course, but in a total different way.

I'm actually in the middle of Sweeney Todd right now, paused it on my puter b/c the fiance hates musicals... he was over earlier. Will finish it before bed tonight.



Also have Dark City as my most recent Netflix acquisition, will likely watch that tomorrow.

The director's cut, I hope. I enjoyed the original cut, but the DC is better.

Choke was largely faithful to the novel, and yet still somehow unsatisfying. Somewhat boring, even.



I repeat my opinion that only David Fincher should be allowed to film Palahniuk adaptations.

Even the trailer put me off. Did I completely misread the book or has the whole theme been changed?!



Umm I finally saw tropic thunder

was a lot better than i expected (ie. i expected to hate it). I thought the humour was more sophisticated and witty than stillers other films and i laughed a lot. Woudlnt watch it again in a hurry though!

Also, my sister didn't realise that the fake trailers were fake. and it took her until one was mentioned in the film to realise it!... after I told her at the time after she said one looked crap. hahahaha. clearly not a brainy day for her!

(hope that isnt too spoilery)

Just watched Hud, an old Paul Newman movie from the 60s...a depressing story, but a well done flick nonetheless.

Just watched Donnie Darko. It was OK. Not worth a re-watch.

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

You must be stoned.



That was one of the best movies made in the last 20 years.

I think being stoned might have helped when viewing the movie.

That sucks you didn't like it. I think its one of those movies that you have to rewatch. The second time watching it I caught on to alot more things and I really appreciated it more.

Got the Iron Man DVD. Watched it with my nerdiest friends, good company. Still get goose bumps when contemplating a larger Marvel movie-verse. Wish DC would get it's act together, they have more that two super heros.



Dear Santa, I want a Green Lantern and a Flash and a Justice League and a Wonder Woman and a Martian Manhunter and a Green Arrow and can they please, please be in continuity? I've been good all year, so please?

I'm not saying I've been stoned, just that it might have helped in this case.

Hmm. I already took it back to the library. Maybe someday I'll check it out again. It's almost always checked out, so I had to place a hold just to get it the first time.

Oh, watched The Mask yesterday. Definitely a movie intended for male fantasies. I thought it was mildly amusing (and some parts were more than mildly amusing) but overall, meh.

Borrowed The Tick vs. Season Two from a friend. And then I found the screen-cap option on my media viewer. Needless to say I've been enjoying both thoroughly.

Just watched The Happening, it was meh. I didn't hate it but didn't exactly like it either.



I also watched the documentary on Ingrid Newkirk from PETA. That was interesting.
