Monday:
Hell Ride (dreadful. It's worth a rental just to see how hard Larry Bishop tries to get people to think he's a bad-ass biker who can get laid..)

Tuesday:
27 Dresses (This one was for the girlfriend. She thought it was cute, I thought it was extremely cliched, but that's what I was expecting. The female cast is hawt though (specially Katherine Heigl. Thank heaven for little girls, indeed.)
Fantastic Four (FINALLY opened my Blu copy that I got like 7 months ago, looked REALLY good, better than I was expecting. I happen to be a fan of the flick, too)

Wednesday:
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (not AWFUL, but less than stellar. The 1080p-ness of it looks really pretty, but not worth the rental)
The Fall (God, this was fucking boring..)
September Tapes (Cloverfield-esque war film.. but instead of a monster, it's Al-Qaeda. Recorded from SHO2HD, looked like shit, but the film itself wasn't awful)

Thursday:
Sukiyaki Western Django (Not one of Miike's best, but still pretty good. Having already seen the uncut version, I definitely prefer this shortened version.)
Saw V (Ending sucked, but still thought it was better than 4.)

Friday:
Sin City (The Blu-ray was everything I was expecting it to be. Oh, and Carla Gugino's tits in are even MORE spectacular than I remembered..)
Burn After Reading (Very enjoyable. Brad Pitt is the shit, here)

Saturday:
Global Metal (OK sequel to "Metal: A Headbangers Journey" a film I wasn't the biggest fan of despite it's intentions. Some pretty good stories, one involving Varg and an Israeli Metal band.)
Hellboy 2: The Golden Army (Enjoyable sequel to the superior first film. Brilliant transfer and Audio)

Sunday:
Hellboy 2: In Service of the Demon (Terrific doc. on the making of the film)
Daredevil (Finally god around to watching the Blu. Looked phenomenal. Grainy as hell, but great nonetheless)

MONDAY 11/10
The Simpsons: S20E05 (2008) why do i keep watching this garbage. The Air Force ads were more entertaining.
The 400 Blows (1959 Francois Truffaut) 83 such a sad beautiful film. absolutely amazing. it all feels so real... just thinking about this film makes me cry.
13 Ghosts (1960 William Castle) 51 silly, but fun.

TUESDAY 11/11
The 10th Victim (1965 Elio Petri) 00 very weird, tedius and awful. the comics and the statue at the pinball machine were the only good things about it.
Wakko's Wish (1999 Liz Holzman, Rusty Mills, Tom Ruegger) 60

WEDNESDAY 11/12
Futurama: Bender's Game (2008 Dwayne Carey-Hill) 27 the best one so far, but that's not saying much.
The Aristocats (1970 Wolfgang Reitherman) 38
Burn After Reading (2008 Coen Brothers) 57 fargo and hopscotch in a blender. enjoyable for what it is.

THURSDAY 11/13
Brass Eye: CS + Special (1997 Christopher Morris) 90 how can people be that stupid...
The Office: S05E07 (2008 Randall Einhorn) 100 shark is in sight

FRIDAY 11/14
The Arrival (1996 David Twohy) 02 decent idea, embassassingly bad execution.

SATURDAY 11/15
Tropic Thunder (2008 Ben Stiller) 81 i can't believe how much i liked this. incredibly fun.
Reality Bites (1994 Ben Stiller) 00 a boring film about boring and annoying (at least the two leads) people.

SUNDAY 11/16
Iron Man (2008 Jon Favreau) 74 This is how you make a superhero movie. A classic B movie serial feel wrapped up in a blockbuster package.
Made (2001 Jon Favreau) 44 i actually tried to count the swear words for the imbd content advisory thing - oy.....
The Incredible Hulk (2008 Louis Laterrier) 51 quite good until the last third, when it just becomes silly.
Get Smart (2008 Peter Segal) 55 much better than expected. genuinly funny at times. a very nice homage to the original series. (i want her jacket)
