I just watched Machette.  It's fun if you don't take it too seriously...

...and watch it with a few beers. :D

I don't think I saw the unrated version.  Basically, everything about the movie, including the violence, is ridiculous over-the-top.

If you go in expecting over-the-top dialog, action, violence, and plot, you'll probably love the movie.  Basically, it watches a lot like a comic book.

A friend took me to see SUcker Punch tonight to cheer me up.  We thought we'd be among the few on a wednesday night, but a hoard of moms came in dragging little girls (average age 6-10) for what they apparently thought would be a brainless superhero kids movie.  One i can even quote as telling her small child to 'sit with mommy and watch some girls kick ass'.


Even when it got reeeaally awkward not one of them left.  It was kind of weird.

Watched Lincoln Lawyer last night. It was quite good. The guy is a defense attorney who represents some... clients with questionable integrity. His driver was a straight-up thug, and they drove around listening "gansta rap" all the time. After the lawyer basically hoodwinks a biker gang, his driver says:

"You know boss, you'd have done OK on the street."

and the lawyer replies "Where do you think I am?"

It started out like that, but got pretty serious and interesting before long, and was quite engaging throughout. My wife said she thought the ending was weak, but I didn't mind it.

i didnt reread the whole thread to see if i mentioned it already, but

several years ago on new years we watched this movie, Decasia.

i keep loosing track of the movies name, and have to spend hours trying to figure out the name of the damn thing again...

it reminded me of Lost Highway, its not really like it at all, but it feels similar. IMO

Hobo with a Shotgun is somewhat more over the top violent than I thought it would be.

I just finished watching Alien versus Ninja.

My opinion is somewhere between "WTF did I just watch?!" and "this is so intentionally bad it's fucking hilarious".

Without giving too much away...

[spoiler]The aliens are some sort of horned humanoid dolphins with mind-controlling parasites in their blowholes and retractile combat tails. They have burrowing speeds, but they only effectively use it in the first encounter or so. The "main team" is made up of a Blood Knight, a Combat Ho and Stylish Hair Guy. I call the girl "Combat Ho" because half the time she fights she's doing improbable things with her legs, like impromptu splits, which results in a lot of shots of her ass and crotch in all its leather-clad glory. She kills one of the aliens by BLADE ENEMA. I'm not kidding. She promptly makes a trollface and flips the dead alien the bird. The last alien inexplicably becomes impossibly harder to kill than the rest of them, possibly because the Blood Knight was doing it alone. Oh yeah, the mind-controlling parasites I was talking about? Turns out they make their victims speak English. Seriously. [/spoiler]

Half the time, I wasn't sure whether to go "WTF" or laugh my ass off. So all in all it's a fun movie as long as you don't take it at all seriously.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

the greatest movie ever sold, product placement documentary; was good.

im nearly done w/ The Way. so far i like it a lot.

someone on this thing is demented.

Martin sheen plays a guy who gets a call that his son has died in france. Emilio Estevez plays his son.

we all expect martin to get that call for real any day, right?

Yellowbrickroad is an odd horror film.  I liked it sort of, but I'm not sure what sort of audience it would appeal to.

I watched No Country for Old Men a while ago and really liked it. They throw a sort of meta-twist at you part way through. Not so much of a plot twist, but more that the movie itself misleads you in terms or expectations.

Anton Chigurh is awesome. He's half of why that movie is so cool.
