    Faster *****cat ! Kill ! Kill ! 9/10 (best sexploitation film ever IMHO)

    and

    My Bloody Valentine (remake) 4/10 (they just cant capture the magic of 80s slasher films these days)

    My favorite line was, "Would you please put some pants on? I feel weird having to ask you twice." :D:D

    Yeah i'm a big saw fan. I've seen them all up to 5 about 6-7 times now. Haven't seen 5 yet because I live in spain now and all local films are (dubbed) spanish:(.

    Astonish what they did though considering their budget (for the first movie, a 1.2 mil budget and turned over 100 mil!)

    Hang over; Great movie.

    Aside from Hang over, UP and Star Trek everything else sucks this summer. 2008 was alot better.

    How about the new Transformers movie, anybody here seen it yet? Is it as bad as everyone says it is? I can't quite believe it because I loved the first one so much. Opinions?

    Theater - Michael Clayton
    [overrated yawner - I treated missus wax to this, as she normally goes ga-ga over George Clooney]

    TV - Night Watch
    [Russian - Horror - fantastic English subtitles - stunning effects & plot & subplots interweave like a cat's cradle - only vampire movie aside from Nosferatu worth watching once, let alone again. Brilliant]

    Next - Day Watch
    [Russian - Horror - Pt II of Trilogy - looking forward to this one]

    Theater: I don't remember which was last. I remember trying to watch "Dead Poets" with Burton's "Batman" exploding in the theater next door. I remember trying to match up "The Postman" with the book. And I remember trying to figure out how they were going to finish Heinlein's "Puppet Masters" on time when the first hour-plus only covered the first five chapters. And I remember standing in line to see "Hunt for Red October", and then having it be the in-flight movie six weeks later. ;)

    Now days, I'm old enough that the thought of dealing with parking lots and queues, and soda covered floors makes me remember that it'll be on cable in a couple of months ... and in the supermarket discount DVD bin in a few more. :p


    Satellite: Okay, this was weird: I was flipping channels last night and stumbled over an IFC showing of "Eros" (2004), billed as three short films by "famous directors" about love and eroticism. I'm not sure how they came to that conclusion.

    But there wasn't anything else on that I hadn't seen before. So, not knowing anything about what to expect, I gave it a try, just for something new.

    The first segment (from China) started out looking like a conventional post-takeover condemnation of prostitution in '60s Hong Kong. But there were surprising elements to it. A physicist might call it "angular momentum" -- about two opposite particles rushing toward mutual annihilation which instead (due to angular momentum) fall into orbit around each other. Not really about eros or love, but a kind of restrained infatuation.

    But it still fell into the "art film" formula of making sudden plot turns for no adequately explored reason, without explanation.

    The second segment (from the US) had some good acting, a couple of elements of humor, and was put together in a way that looked to be going somewhere that it never quite reached.

    The third segment (Italy) was just depressing, with good geographic scenery, and little else: making people seem less than their products. No real plot, lots of gratuitous nudity, some really bad dancing, some scenic old buildings, and a convertible. As one IMDB reviewer commented: it was like a long male fantasy version of a Maserati commercial. ;)

    I took some film courses in college, and apparently the definition of an art film is still: "it must be art: it makes no sense at all". :p

    Art film students will, of course, read whatever they want into the segments: sort of like a film version of an ink blot.

    Just finished watching Saw V. Wasn't as good as 1 & 4 but it wasn't a particular horrible movie...

    Do hope VI will be a bit better though!

    For what it's worth, we checked Wall-E out from the library and my 3 year-old LOVES it. It's pretty good, and dripping with social commentary.

    I saw Transformers 2 in the theatre the other night. If you are a fan of the series or like action movies then you will like it; if you have to be dragged to it by your 10 year old son then not so much...

    I liked it :)
