Yes I saw Crazy Heart, and yes it was similar to the Wrestler. I found it to be really good, and I had to be talked into seeing it. I wanted to see Lovely Bones.

Probably the next movie I'll see in theatre is Alice in Wonderland -- how is it that the whole 'Johnny Depp puts on a ton of makeup and does silly things' meme is still entertaining?

I don't know, but Depp and Tim Burton may be the most repetitive men in Hollywood.

Anyone else looking forward to Cop Out with Bruce W and Tracy Morgan? Looks like a decent comedy flick, I might look out for it.

Not sure about that one, I mean I already saw Rush Hour and 48 Hours so I am not sure I will pay $10 to see it all over again.

Last film I saw at the cinema was Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief with my six year old son. I enjoyed it. For a kids film it was fun. It was also cool that my son recognised it as I've been reading it to him at bed time. I prefered this to Christ Colubus' Harry Potter films.

Saw Wolfman before that. It had everything going for it: strong cast; Rick Baker on effects - it's the best looking werewolf since An American Werewolf in London! Unfortunatly the film was boring. The best bit was in the asylum in London... the rest was pants.

Somebody brought me The Negotiator on Blu Ray yesterday. I haven't seen that since it firt came out in the late 90's. Going to watch that tonight. I hope it's as good as I remember it.

Might go to the cinema on Friday and see Solomon Kane. Looks good: plus my girlfriend likes the actor, so we've both got a reason to see it.

Didn't know The Lightning Thief was a book. I thought it was just a movie with a ridiculously long title.

Does anyone know of any sites that score Oscar picks? I usually do Oscar pools but I've never done it online...something similar to the way fantasy football pick 'em is set up. Curious if I'm missing out.

I saw Wolfman. It was indeed pretty boring but damn Hopkins still has that sly humour thing going for him. There's a few parts where he left me in stitches and I'm sure he wasn't meant to but meh. I also have a bit of a mancrush for Benecio so that got me through.

The next movie I hope to see is Shutter Island. I've built it up in my mind cause I'm a bit of a Leo fanboy so hopefully it doesn't fall flat.

The last movie I've seen though was Chasing Amy. It was on one of my movie channels and it's as good the fourth time as it is the first. Now THAT is Jason Lee's best performance I believe.

Chasing Amy is great...it's one of the few times Affleck has been believable too in my eyes. And it's probably Jason Lee's best performance....Vanilla Sky and Mumford rank in his top 3 too even though they are both lesser parts.

I guess I'll throw up mine from last night.

Up - Pixar is always worth seeing. Notch below Toy Story 1 & 2, Incredibles, and Wall-E but still very good.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs - One of my favorite books as a kid, wasn't as butchered as I thought it would be. I thought the adaption of this was better than Where The Wild Things Are and Fantastic Mr. Fox, two of my other adapted childhood stories from around the same time.

Big Fan - Heard a lot of good things about it, but didn't hit me as much as it did other people I know that have seen it. A part or two rang a little too close to home as a sports fan....but this was probably the best sports movie of last year....anyone know a better one?

I am not joking about this, but what about him on My Name Is Earl? He was awsome in that part. Granted that is television and not the movies but he was still great as Earl.

I enjoyed Shutter Island a lot: it's well-crafted and a mind-**** in the best possible way.

I know Up is on everybody's top movies of the year list but I found it to be probably the worst thing Pixar's done other than Cars. The montage at the opening was cloyingingly sentimental and the tone was all over the place throughout the film. Pixar's been making movies for adults disguised as kid's movies for awhile, but this was probably the worst offender in terms of some of the adult themes, but then for some reason it also had a bunch of dogs acting like dogs jokes. I know it's going to win best animated feature, but I wouldn't put it in my top 3, with Coraline, Mr. Fox, and the Princess and the Frog in front of it.

Also I know the Book of Eli may look like the Road visually since it has the whole post-apocalyptic look, but I think it's selling the Road short to just say it's like Eli but bleaker. I don't have the same expectations from a Hughes brothers movie starring Denzel that I do from Viggo Mortenson and the director of the Proposition. I expect one to be mildly entertaining and I expect one to be legitimately good.

Also I never saw Mumford but Jason Lee in the Incredibles and Dogma is my favorite Jason Lee.

Without giving away anything to those who have not watched the movie, I really liked Shutter Island as well. However, I felt the ending was a tad bit unrealistic.

Shutter Island still isn't out in the UK...they've been running trailers for it since the beginning of last year Not long to go though, and I am a fan of Scorsese and sometimes Leo. They managed not to completely screw up one of my favourite Korean movie(s) with a western adaptation, so bonus points there. Will Smith is staring in Oldboy - not holding out such high hopes for that :-p

I'm working from home today and plan on watching Black Dynamite...anyone seen that yet? It's a tribute/spoof of the Blaxploitation genre - so Grindhouse with a bit of soul...Bump 'n' Grindhouse, if you wiiillll. The story goes that 'The Man' has poisoned America's Malt Liquor supply, which as we all know is where the black man gets his power from (Seriously, that's in the synopsis). In order to stop whitey's nefarious scheme, our hero Black Dynamite has to do a whole lot of pimp-slapping, kung-fu kicking and love making. He even gets to visit the president of the USA in the 'Honkey House'. Awsome

Will post later and let peeps know if it's any good.
