Saw the Watchmen just now. It was okay, it tried to be more intelligent than your average superhero flick. But I saw the twists coming a mile away. I also didn't like how the superheroes didn't really have any powers except extreme martial arts with no kind of variation. Dr Manhatten being the exception, he was the silver surfer basically which was cool.

Pointless nudity too and the main villain was a bit of a twat.

 Is it better than the V for Vendetta comic? that was a huge disappointment.

The problem with Watchmen is that at the end of everything it's your basic superhero story when you boiled it down, but it was dressed up and bogged down in human minutia. Which was actually its strengh, but it treads a fine line when at the end you have this parody bond villain bullshit.

Saw Knowing which was crap and Paul Blart which was worse.

Also watching Stargate Universe which is more boring yet different, more realistic and mildly compelling.

Fringe season 2 is being watched too. Are they trying to introduce this brunette detective as a main character? Do not want.

Saw Hercules last night.

hercules_3.jpg

Disney incessently repeating itself. Main character who feels "different" i.e the black swan/ugly duckling story again. Comedy sidekick, check. Breaking out into song, check. Romantic interest, check. Predictable ending, check.

Snoozefest? Semi-check.

 Yeah, Hercules was never really my fave Disney movie. Though James Woods is AWESOME in that film, and more than makes up for it.

Saw Fantastic Four the movie a few days ago. What a horrible movie, why is doom, not Doom? The special effect suck, the acting is crap, the story makes no sense. The only good thing is Alba in her tight suit.

Second film is a lot better, if only because of the silver surfer.

Just saw Red Steel the movie aka...

silt%20us%20poster%20showdown_in_little_tokyo.jpg

Wow, its been a long time since I saw this..... masterpiece of early 90s cinema. Its speaks volumes that every fucking Segal movie ever made is still like this, 20 years later. I haven't seen this many boob shots in a movie since the 80s.

Got back from:  

It's better than the trailers let on. Sure, the plot is pretty standard fair and the acting is barely passable (I swear, Sam Worthington swaps between Australian and American accents quite frequently), but everything else is fucking awesome. 

Seeing it in 3D may not be the best experience (there are times when it doesn't quite work), but it highlights that the CG is fucking outstanding.

I watched Ninja Assassins last Sunday and what can I say. It is a crappy movie. 

The action scenes are filmed by a shaky cam, meaning that you can't really follow what is happening. There are some huge ass plot holes, so big you can fly a plane through it. Besides some cool ninja moves this film has nothing. Do not see it unless you have a few cynical bastards with you! Then the movie becomes so bad it is awesome.

So if you must see it, take these two with you.

LOL Hercule.

It's repetitive, but the muses and Hades' two lackeys somehow fix it all.

What other disney fare do I need to see?

Tarzan and little mermaid any good? Lion King?

I've avoided lion king because Elton John sucks balls.

Musically I mean.

Tarzan is great. Everyone loves Lion King and Little Mermaid. I've not seen either.

I hate The Little Mermaid! It has nothing to do with the quality of the movie, though. I hate it because when my sister was little, she watched that movie every . . . single . . . day for months! And she'd play it as loud as she could too! Argh!
