Well, self explanatory, couldn't find a similar thread, so have at it.
Gran Torino 9/10
Dragonball Evolution: 0/10
I was totally about to say, Terminator Salvation, then I remember I watched these:
The Terminator - 4/5
Terminator 2: Judgement Day - 4/5 (or 9/10)
-I hate the fact that the Second Disc and Terminator Disc are DVD-ROMs. I don't wanna drag myself away from the Television Set just to watch a couple featurettes on my Computer .
Also, someone answer this for me: Was there ever extended version of the original Terminator film? I remember seeing a scene where Kyle Reese finds his buddy melted into the structure of a Fire Escape after he arrives in 1984 when I watched it on the Movie Channel (not the Network TV Channel).
Last movie I watched was Zodiak and I'd give it an 8 outta 10.
Terminator Salvation: 3.5/5
Kinda draggy for the first half... Though it's pretty good towards the last 1/3, esp with Arnie's "cameo".
Friday the 13th 7/10
It was entertaining but that's about it
Night at the Museum 2! Surprisingly, I kinda enjoyed it as it was pretty funny. I give it 7/10 in terms of entertainment!
Night at the Museum 2, and it was actually good for a comedy's sequel. Was a little jumpy, but it was good. I really liked the parts with young Al Capone and Napoleon. Overall, I'd give it a 7.5/10. Some of the returning characters could, and should, have been skipped all together, imo. My favorite line was one used in one of the trailers: "Sack-in-the-box?"
Saw Night At The Museum 2 last weekend. It was cute and about on par with the first one, which was cute. I'm glad I saw both movies but have no real desire to add them to my dvd collection, which says more about what I thought about them than any rating I could give them. But I'll go ahead and give Night At The Museum 2 a 7 out of 10.
last one in theaters: Watchmen 4/5 (the girl i was with, 4.8/5)
latest one here at home: Last Action Hero 3.5/5
Star Trek: 4/10.
I don't think so. I don't recall ever seeing or hearing of that scene, it may be in Cameron's draft script on the DVD Rom, but its not in the deleted scenes on any release.
I would love to see a cut of the film with Reese's breakdown in it, where Sarah finds a phone book and approaches Reese with Cyberdyne's address and asking if they can do something about Judgement Day - that scene is in the DVD extras.
Oh, yeh, the last film I watched was 'My Name Is Bruce'. Didn't know what to expect, but its Bruce playing a version of himself and a town kidnap him to kill a real monster based on seeing his films.
Its a good laugh just to see what Bruce Campbell thinks of his career and his fans, its all a bit 'Xena' in appearance, but everything he does recently has that about it, 'Alien Apocalypse' and 'Man With The Screaming Brain' to name a couple. Its a chance for Bruce to laugh at himself. I'd probably only recommended it to Campbell fans. Not many films like this around, the only other one I can even think of is 'Last Action Hero'. I give 'MNIB' a 7/10 - well above average for this kind of comedy film.
I also watched, after 'MNIB', 'Screamers: The Hunting'. Its a really solid follow up to the first film, about 17-18 years ago, and is abviously a lot more flash and more gorey. Really entertaining. Performances and dialogue was adequate, effects were good, especially the gore, and the plot was a bit average and familiar, but well played out none-the-less. I got more enjoyment out of this than many straight to DVD sequels, like 'Starship Troopers 3'.
I give 'S:TH' a solid 6/10 - above average for sci-fi horror DVD fare.
Drag me to Hell - 8/10, very entertaining and hilarious throughout.
Vexille - 5/10
Pretty CGI but weak story and plot. Meh..
Before that I watched The Devil's Rejects which was a lot better. I'd rate that one 8/10
The wild Ocean, or something like that, i saw it at omsimax or what ever, it was a short hour or so film about fish that get eaten... * documentary* 6 out of 10, but the photography, was 9 out of 10.
before that, Startrek. i'd say, 7 out of 10.
Sweeny Todd. 6/10.
The Hangover 8/10
