Hanging out with the family meant we had to watch movies.

Over Christmas we watched these movies which I had not seen until then.

The Davinci Code (sucks unless you have no idea what the concept is coming in)
Pirates 2 (boooooring....)
Clerks 2 (pretty funny but it lost some steam and didn't really go into the whole customer evals/bitches)
Ali G: In Da House (plenty of cheese of course but we had to watch it with the whole Sacha trend going on. I thought it had some very awesome moments though)

Saw Children of Men. Brilliant. The extended, one-shot scenes are fucking rediculous in the best way. I thought the extended shot from the end of Kill Bill 1 was great, but Cuaron managed to blow it out of the water, twice. The scene during the battle at the fugee camp has to be seen to be believed. I actually think Cuaron deserves a best director award for this, but at the very least this movie needs cinematography awards up the wazoo.

Yeah find that too. Between the Departed, Pan's Labyrinth and Children of Men, this has probably been my favourite year for movies in a long, long time... Too bad none of those movies is going to get recognized by the Academy... The fucks.

Man all my friends have been raving about Little Miss Sunshine and I thought it was kind of boring. It was a decent movie I guess with some pretty funny parts, but they way oversold it. The only time I really laughed was the sarcasm scene.

Kind of wish I'd just watched Children of Men again... Guess I'll just have to wait til tomorrow.

I watched The Secret of NIHM New Years Eve with a group of friends, all but one of them had not seen it. Very good oldschool fun.

Wizards is awesome. That 6.2 rating on IMDB is bullshit.

Apocalypto wins. Great atmosphere even if the end is a little hard to believe. Nice ending though if you can suspend disbelief. I mean what are the odds? If you see it then you'll understand what I mean.

I need to see The Departed.

Watched Children of Men again today, which is the first time I've watched a movie more than once within a day of the initial viewing, in pretty much as long as I can remember. Can you guys tell I'm really excited about it? I'm still planning on going to see it this weekend in the theatre, since I have a feeling it's going to be worth it to catch it on a big screen.

There's a really rad interview with Alfonso Cuaron at RT in case anyone actually cares to read it. Not sure if it will be as interesting without having seen the movie though.

We went in to town today to check out the Movie Gallery here, which is a very lame chain of movie rental stores, and they have shelves and shelves of really old, obscure cult VHS movies for next to nothing. I'd like to get back there for a longer browse so I can maybe find something worthwhile. Anybody have suggestions for stuff to keep my eyes peeled for, next time I go?

Speaking of Trainspotting, has anyone here seen Millions? It's kind of a gay family/christmas show but when I checked it out on HBO or whatever I ended up watching the whole thing. All in all, pretty good imo.

Adult Swim's feature version of surreal animated series "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" has been set for a March release by First Look Pictures with an opening of more than 800 playdates.

The 86-minute pic, written, produced and directed by co-creators Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis, marks First Look's initial theatrical foray into animation as well as Adult Swim's first feature under the Williams Street banner.

The film centers on the origins of "Hunger Force" characters Meatwad, Frylock and Master Shake and an immortal piece of exercise equipment threatening the balance of galactic peace.

"It was too big a story to do in 11 minutes," Willis told Daily Variety. "It's based on our fear of exercise equipment."

Maiellaro and Willis will be voicing several parts each, and several members of the TV cast will be reprising their roles. Bruce Campbell and Neil Peart of the band Rush provide voice talent as well.

"Aqua Teen Hunger Force" premiered in September 2001, when Adult Swim launched. More than 60 episodes of the series have been completed.

I'll see it.

Tammy and the T-Rex

I've wanted to see this one, personally, simply for the element of the bizarre. High school cheerleader meets boyfriend. Boyfriend pwnd by lions. (!?) Mad doctor places boyfriend's brain in robotic dinosaur. Hijinks ensue.

Also, you might find one of my favorite bad movies of all time - Inframan. I can't really say much about Inframan other than he's good fun and has Thunderball fists!

If you want to see something really weird then watch Brazil.

If you were talking to me, I have. It happens to be one of my favorite movies. I doubt any good version will be found on some VHS shelf though.
