No, the movie just sucked. It had no redeeming artistic qualities.

At least when I see these few seconds out of the sequence of the film it can make me laugh.

Any movie that has a jail-bait Alyssa Milano in it has at least one redeemimg quality!

Just finished BSG: Razor (Unrated Version).

While I feel that it didn't advance the plot as much as just fill in holes, it was a good little movie.

Spoiler:
... and it was cool seeing the original tincans!


On to Season 4! Can't wait!

Akira. For some reason I just didn't enjoy it as much this time... I was tired though, so that may have something to do with it... previously I have loved watching it. I'm not sure how to react to this viewing. The PQ/AQ was phenomenal. The Animation and Music are first rate.

Wow! I got to throw you under the bus on this one my friend. Commando is an absolute classic. So many quotable lines. I'm sorry man but if this is the first time you've seen this movie, a movie in which the plot is basically Arnold in his prime, single-handedly killing like 100 men to save Alyssa Milano. And you have actually said the phrase - " it had no redeeming artistic qualites". after seeing it, I believe this qualifies as actually quantifiable scientific evidence, that you are not a man.

Whoa, whoa, WHOA... Did I just read that GenPion thinks the almighty bastion of latent homosexuality, Commando, sucks? Blasphemer! That movie is pure 80's gold mined from deep within the Earth. So many quoteable lines, so many awesome character actors, so much Arnold carnage. My only lament is the fact that it doesn't have a proper BD release.

re: Last BD (or, unrealistically, HD DVD) you watched?

Just finished watching Grindhouse - Planet Terror and Death Proof. Seeing Grindhouse in the theater was possibly the best movie going experience I have ever had - in any case, it is one the greatest, and while I miss the in-between trailers (especially the one for Edgar Wright's "DONT!", I love the extended footage for boths cuts of these films and I feel they actually improve upon what was already great. As for Death Proof I really can't believe they cut the lap dance out of the theatrical cut. Easily one of the best scenes in the film and one of the sexiest too. I'm not sure I'll ever tire of these films and having them on Blu-ray was a must. Best double feature ever? A likely choice. I can't watch one without the other and as an enormous fan of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino I don't think I could ever ask for a more satisfying combination.

Band of Brothers Currahee, Day of Days, Caranten, & Replacements

Observe and Report holy cow that thing was crappy. I expected so much and got absolutely nothing. Even the gag reel sucked. I feel like my eyes have just been raped for 86 minutes.

Ghostbusters. An absolute classic. I hadn't watched this in several years and I loved it this time as much as I ever have. Not the greatest PQ/AQ out there yet I imagine it looks close to how the film was when in premiered in theaters - for a 25 year old film it looks great and I think this is a solid release for $10.

This.

Netflixed this, tried watching it last night, & we couldn't even make it through the whole thing. I'm not a Rogen hater, I actually like the guy a lot, but I am utterly dumbfounded with all the praise this movie has gotten here. I see a lot of posts raving about it. It is absolutely dreadful, in every possible way.

re: Last BD (or, unrealistically, HD DVD) you watched?

Rented X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I sorta kind liked it. Not too familiar with all the retcons his origin story had over the years, but it could have been much, much worse. Don't know anything about Deadpool, but the character in the movie was pretty much a waste. Wasn't really sure who some of the others were supposed to be, too. And I thought they sort of rushed through the whole Weapon X part, but the worst thing about this movie was some of the downright terrible visual effects.

I thought they blew it at the end when

Spoiler:
they were all set to have Wolverine and Gambit strike out together, but Logan went off on his own
