Thanks for helping me to remember that I still need to watch this on Blu-ray. I absolutely love this movie. Maybe tomorrow I will do a movie marathon of Memento, The Prestige, Batman Begins, and The Dark Knight -all in High Definition. Nice!

Street Kings.

The first half had me interested, and then it became really lame and predictable by the end. The script was downright terrible for this one.

The Strangers - PQ and AQ were decent.

Note to self; when being pursued by mask wearing killers, try not to spend inordinate amounts of time not paying attention, exposing my back, seperating from the person with the gun, leave my cell phone lying around and calling out thereby giving away my location if they didn't already know it.

Old School HD-DVD.

It was a pretty funny movie but nothing great. I think I may hold on to this one though. It was an inexpensive, good blind buy.

Hard Boiled and Planet Terror

Hard Boiled looked eh, OK. Planet Terror on the other hand looked phenomenal. AQ was top-notch also. Watched about 4 minutes of the "scratch free" version, looked ridiculous but didn't feel right.

Death Proof

Terrific AQ and PQ. 'specially the second half. I, personally, think it's the better film outta the two. God I hope FOX doesn't fuck up "Vanishing Point".. but something tells me they'll try.

The Last Sentinel BD. Was a blind buy, while not a great movie it some of the action was worth it especially for $4.99 used.

Watched "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Trading Places" on HD DVD. Good stuff. I'm really impressed with how film-like the Trading Places transfer looks on my display.
