Recently watched:

The Island - Yes, the Michael Bay movie. I don't care, I love this movie. I've seen it quite a few times and I enjoy it every time.

Prometheus - Having never watched an Alien movie I thought I'd start at the "beginning". I liked it a lot and can't wait to move on to Alien.

I'm glad somebody else did. I loved it. But I just see everyone bashing it everywhere.

The Iron Giant - Another movie I've seen numerous times. I just love this film - definitely in my Top 5. A touching story about a boy and his robot. I can't wait for it to get a proper blu-ray release so I can upgrade my DVD.

I can only agree with you. One of the best SCI-FI in years. I have already watched it twice and still think it is brilliant. Can't wait for the sequel.

Watched a few to pass the time yesterday.

Dune- I had never seen this one. I wasn't blown away and I didn't totally hate it. It'll take another viewing to pass judgment on.

The Monolith Monsters- I love this 1957 sci-fi cheese fest.

The Incredible Shrinking Man- Another 50s epic. Always makes me smile.

Last night I watched A Sound of Thunder. I watched it back in 2005 when it was new and kind of liked it so I thought I'd give it another viewing. The acting is OK, the story is pretty good actually, but the SFX are abysmal. They feel dated and it's not even 10 years old yet.

Watched G.I. Joe Retaliation last night. A complete waste of time.

The first G.I. Joe movie wasn't a masterpiece, by any means. But it was a fun, cheesy, action-flick to watch. Retalliation didn't have that charm going for it. It just seemed like something for Rock to pose and show-off in.

Starring Liam Neeson (Taken, Batman Begins, Clash of the Titans), directed by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead movies and Spider-Man movies). And it even looked great, visually.

So you'd think it would have been a great movie.

It wasn't. All the characters were cardboard cut-outs with no depth at all. And frankly, the decisions they made in the film made absolutely no sense. So it was hard to take any of it seriously.

Skip this one.

Just watched Skyline, Tron, and Tron: Legacy.
Skyline was one of the worst wastes of time I've seen in a long time - what a horrible movie... cool SFX though.
Tron was really kind of boring. I remember all the hype when it originally came out but never got to see it until now.
Tron: Legacy was pretty sweet and a great follow-up/sequel. However, the SFX for CLU were not very good and kind of off-putting. Maybe it looked better on the big screen than it does on BluRay?

Pretty good if you're into anthologies. It really captured the feel of those old horror comics. Perfect for Halloween viewing.

Been laid up from surgery so...
DeathProof: pretty good, made me laugh and had some sweet cars.
Planet Terror: hilarious.

Dreamscape: a great movie with, good writing, excellent acting, and awesome SFX for the time period.

Anvil! The Story of Anvil: an excellent documentary about an obscure but incredibly influential Canadian metal band that never got the breaks they deserved. If you like metal I strongle recommend watching this.

Alien Planet: a docu-drama from the Discovery Channel. A bit goofy and far-fetched.

A Dirty Shame: just freakin' odd...

I Love You Phillip Morris: Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey in a true story movie that just about nobody has ever heard of. This was a great movie with some really funny parts and a lot of tugging at the heart strings. The main character really is kind of a bad person, but you keep finding yourself rooting for him...

Death Race: A great re-imagining of the classic. I really liked this (had a solid Twisted Metal Black vibe to it) but I've heard that the sequels/prequels were terrible.

Forbidden Zone: a "musical comedy film based upon the stage performances of the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo.". Unwatchable garbage. I couldn't get through more than 30 minutes of this piece of convoluted self-indulgent crap.

DOA - Dead or Alive: good popcorn flick. Pretty people with lots of action and very little story, but still a fun watch.

My Name Is Bruce: forgettable and disappointing. I love Bruce Campbell, but this is a low point for his career (and THAT is saying a lot).

Semi-Pro: I can't stand Will Ferrel, but this one was pretty good. Funny with a good enough story to keep me watching. Woody Harrelson is great in everything he does.

The entire 1990s X-Men animated series: this got so much hype when it was on the air, but I rarely got to watch because of when it came on. I definitely understand the hype - this series was incridible! Compelling stories with great writing, high quality animation, and good voice acting. Until the final season that is, when it all turned to utter $h!t. I guess they found out they were getting cancelled and just stopped caring because suddenly half the voices were different people, characters started looking different and the animation was inconsistent, and the writing was just incomprehsible gibberish. Early in the final season the stories just stopped making sense and were pointless filler that had nothing to do with the previous 5 seasons.
Worst series ending EVER. Hell, even the 1990s Spider-Man being cancelled on a cliff-hanger was a better ending than this.

Titan A.E. (2000)

For a movie that's 13 years old, I think it's held up really well. The animation doesn't feel dated to me. And with solid voice acting by Matt Damon, Drew Barrymore, Nathan Lane, Bill Pullman and John Leguizamo, how could you go wrong? It's a solid animated sci-fi adventure. Very underrated, similar to Disney's Treasure Planet.

Battle: Los Angeles: I expected more of a sci-fi flick than an old skool war movie, but it was really good.

Also started in on The Adventures of Brisco County Jr - so far it's pretty good. Even the wife got pulled in when she came home and I was halfway through an ep. Picked the entire series up for $5(!!) at Costco.

I just got back from my dad's house where I saw this.

The movie goes by a few titles, actually: "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie", "Don't Open the Window", and the title this particular copy went by "The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue".


The main-characters

Better than I expected actually. A great little zombie flick, especially considering the time of it's release (1973). A bit gorier than I expected, for the same reason. But I guess this was when Texas Chainsaw Massacre had just scared the piss out of everyone.

The beginning was a little slow to get into, but once things start happening, it's a pretty cool movie that delivers some great zombie scenes and gore scenes. And it's British (but I don't mind British horror movies).



Local farmers start using a new "envirnmentally safe" pest-control technology that uses ultra-sonic waves. It's designed to work on simple nervouse systems only, and drives the pests to kill each other. But unknown to everyone, it's also waking the local dead.



Once the first murder or two happens, two travellers passing through are pegged for the murders. Of course the police don't believe their story of the walking dead. The movie follows the two characters trying to escape the grip of the police and trying to survive the horror of the flesh-eating fiends.

If you're into zombie flicks, this one is worth checking out.
