havent seen it, but I loved that comic book as a kid.


As for movies, saw the miniseries Comanche Moon the other day (its a Lonesome Dove prequel). Love the book, the movie wasnt great. Steve Zahn did a passable Augustus McCrae and the chick frm freeks and geeks was pretty good, but they moved the story enough to lose some of the drama.

Still, a decent tv movie. Probably the worst of the 4 lonesome dove miniseries.

6/10

I saw a documentary early this morning on the Sundance Channel called Prodigal Sons. It was good, but some really awkward scenes that forced me to change the channel for a few minutes at a time.

The star is the writer and director and she [Kim] is returning home to Montana after a very long hiatus. She is a transgender female with a less than understanding older brother Marc, whom she hasn't talked to in over a decade. He's adopted and apparently the bastard son of Orson Welles. That's no joke. And that whole part is a bit weird and confusing.

Anyways, the documentary was supposed to be mainly about her returning to her hometown for her high school reunion, but it ended up being primarily about her brother Marc and his head injury, which he sustained in a car accident when he was about 25. They removed part of his brain and because of that, he suffers from extreme mood swings which he cannot control.

I won't detail the whole film, but it was great. 74% It was a bit shorter than I would have liked.

Shame on you. Go back, watch it again, and come back with a higher rating.

7/10

(1982) henry winkler, michael keaton, shelley long. winkler and keaton work the late shift as coroners and decide to start running a prostitution ring with all the downtime they have. a pretty funny and very easy to watch 80s comedy.

Take my advice. Don't see it.

I too loved those comic books, however, this movie takes every part of it and bastardizes it to something not even close to recognizable. It is shit in every sense of the word.

Saw Edge of Darkness last night and it wasn't what I expected...I thought it was gonna be great and like a amazing movie. Thought it was gonna be like Taken, but I didn't like it that much...the action was great, Mel Gibson did good. The plot/storyline wasnt that good to me. But everything besides that was good. I'll give it

Edge of Darkness - 6/10

An Education



8.5/10

I'm a sucker for any coming of age story, but this one is particularly well done. carey mulligan put in my favorite performance that i've seen in the last year. she used her face and expressions so well, and really captured the energy and spirit of a teenager discovering how big the world is.

Finally saw Killbill

7/10 for volume 1
8.5/10 for volume 2


First one should be ranked higher, but I was watching it with a girl and it left a bad taste in her mouth, thus leaving a bad taste in mine. Volume 2 would still have been better in my book, even if I had been watching it with some guys.

It's kind of like the SATs: 1 point for spelling the name right, and a second for having a guy take an axe to his own face out of spite. Or maybe he was punishing himself for helping to make that movie...

Just watched Tyson, an hour and a half documentary told strictly from the mouth of the man himself. I liked it in that it was just Tyson telling his story the whole time, but listening to him speak for that long can get a bit annoying. He has some pretty disturbing outlooks on life, especially when it comes to sex, but overall I thought it was a pretty good flick that gave a lot of insight about his state of mind during various points of his career and life. 7/10.
