Both Narnia films. 5/5 stars for me.

Saw WANTED; absolute triumph of form over substance and the body count is a bit high for me (innocent civilians on a train)-4/10

MEDIUM COOL (now an OOP DVD from Paramount) 6/10 for being a bit dated but some of Wexler's images are just mind-blowing.

For whatever reason I'm interested in checking out GRAN TORINO once it goes wide and opens here this weekend. I haven't even been a huge fan of Eastwood's recent works, either, despite their mass critical acclaim, but this one seems a bit more in tune with some of his earlier films. Or is it?

GRAN TORINO looks to me too much like A PERFECT WORLD, one of the most boring moviegoing experiences I've survived.

The Film Crew on GIANT OF MARATHON

The Film Crew was a short-lived MST3K ripoff by the last three hosts of MST, and I have to say, the movies they "Crewed" are a lot like MST for me--the first time I see them, I think they're OK, but when I REwatch them, I find them hilarious.

The chick in this one is uberhot.

Best line:

(Over a shot of Greek warriors swimming in the ocean during a battle)

I am interested in the new Eastwood movie as well...I have yet to see BENJAMIN BUTTON though, so who knows? Maybe I'll wait for DVD.

That movie had Leelee Sobieski AND Alicia Witt AND it still sucked. :)

Leelee's "mad" scene at the end was pretty funny, though. :lol:

THE ILLUSTRATED MAN - 8/10. I liked it, though it is really creepy and weird. Steiger is over the top but effectively creepy and it's perspective of the future was so incredibly bleak. I did not read the Bradbury short stories. Very dated in its look but worth watching.

I'm probably preaching to the converted but I love Goldsmith's score for this. The mood it sets is perfect for the movie--it's bleak but it's not depressing, if you catch my drift.

You need to read Bradbury's short stories. Wonderful stuff.
