Saw Watchmen today and loved it!
Visually stunning in it's beauty, brutal and intelligent. And with a story that was on the unpredictable side. All in all, I highly recommend it.

But I think the movie requires a mind, if not fond of, at least tolerant to the super hero scene. :)

I know quite a few Watchmen fans that would shoot you for that post. They feel the movie was a travesty compared to comic book series it was based on.

Bah! All fans say that about all kinds of films based on comic books, or regular books too for that matter. So I'm inclined to believe it says more about the fans than the actual film. ^^

Yeah, I'm inclined to believe that fans don't like the books/comics being bastardised by a 2nd rate film adaptations. :wink:

Which I just don't understand. I've read the comic a bunch of times (it's kinda my Fallout of comics), and I thought the movie was incredibly faithful to it. I've seen other comic based movies that veritably butchered the source material, but not this one. Oh well, some people are never happy. Like Fallout fans ;)

Lesbian Vampire Killers. Great comedy, jokes with puns, even though a bit college'ish. Lots of fun and entertainment and hot girls before and after the turn.

So all we have to do is to sit tight until the morning.. I mean it's not like I'm going to say "Hey lesbian vampyres, come on into our cottage", is it?! Oh shit.. Look, I was being ironic..

I finally got around to pay the near premium price for Pixar's UP.. It has become a mental block to pay the premium price for me, but I wasn't disappointed as it's full worth the price. The intro is really a masterpiece of a cute and sentimenal intro to the movie. I remember old classic movis from the sixties and and sooner where the producers cared for everything and made funny animated intros, even for subtitles.. It had a bit of that and I cried.. Which.. come to think it, is the dummest of the dum thing to make people do when they need their eyes to watch.. FOOLS!! :P

I also saw a movie with Bruce Willis called Surrogates, but I was thinking more about "Gamer - Who's playing you" for the metaphors.. The surrogates are robots, but in Gamer people were controlling people.. Not too shabby, but a bit too much money went into the effects division and a bit too little into making a better story with better actors.. Even though I think that some of the actors could have been in the better movie too.

I still got Walk the Line waiting for my eyes, the biographical story about Johnny Cash portrayed by Joaquin Phonix.. It's a little funny that I had to hear Johnny Cash sing Burning ring of Fire on a warm as hell summerday with a cold beer in my hands sitting in our camp on this years edition of Roskilde Festival to get around to actually listen to him. I got an album called Murder, Death, Life.. But I need to dive into some of his periods more as there are some marvelous songs..

Too bad for you. I guess you should have watched Walk the Line instead. I was a bit wary of Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash, because Gladiator was the last movie I saw with him, but it was right-on. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon plays really well together in more than one sense.. The do both the acting and the singing and it was pretty good. Not quite the weight of Johnny Cash, but quite believable as a younger version.

I picked up a so-called vampire movie called Requiem for a Vampire for DKK 49,95. The price sticker was put in such a careless way that I couldn't see the country nor the production year, but the cover looked new and a bit interesting in a cheesy way. Unfortunately it turned out to be a french movie from 1971 and it's officially the most boring and uninteresting movie I've ever seen. Vampires walking around in sun-light.. It looks like the kind of bad movies I recall from the seventies with the eyes of a bad flue and the only thing its got going for itself is the soft-core porn and nudity, but I can get better for free.

That is indeed waste of plastic. I don't random buy DVDs for that very reason.

I have been thinking about getting some form of smart phone to use for looking up reviews on the internet for all those random movies I pick up, because whenever I see and read one of those 'refreshed' movies I am totally left in the dark. I really hate that deceptive mark-up of old crap. There should be a law against totally misleading..
