Am I the only one that is downloading every single movie that Shannon is posting?

I haven't heard about 75% of them and they all look great.

Good shit Shannon, keep it up.

G.I. Joe: Shit/10.

Like two things worth actually watching in this movie. A hot couple of chicks in tight suit and the robotic suit thing was kinda cool.

But even most the graphics were like oddly like Matrix Reloaded status.

the graphics were very 90s. The sad part is that the movie had a 175 million budget. If the movie is sh*it, please at least invest in some awsome graphics (ala transformers).

p.s. A remake is in the making..

just started watching an older hbo show, Carnivale.


Its a little cryptic and sometimes it seems like they skipped a scene, but overall an interesting little story that takes a while to develop. The first episode had me ready to abandon ship, but I was definitely pulled in by the second one. Incomplete rating till I see it all, but an entertaining and somewhat suspenseful show.

I went over the weekend to see a revival of The Godfather at an old community theatre a few towns over from me. It's an old theatre, certainly not state of the art, but it was a rare opportunity for me to see it on the big screen. I've seen it I don't know how many times, but it's been a while since I've seen it from start to finish. I mostly watch it a few scenes at a time while flipping on college football on Saturday afternoons while it's on AMC.

I actually know it well enough I was actually a little concerned about weather or not I could stay engaged for the full three hours without having a football game to flip to. It's not like I'm gonna be agog when Salazzo plants the knife in Luca's hand. But I was absolutely, 100% engaged the entire time. It's just a brilliant film. Lousey theatre means it was a little more shadowey than I'd have it at home, but still stunning to look at in parts. The scene where Paulie gets killed in the weeds of Seacaucus with the Statue of Liberty framed a third over. The empty hospital scene gives off an eeriness as true as any horror flick. And it's filled with some of the great one off characters ever. And the dialogue feels so genuine. Incredibly quotable. The characters, even the smaller ones, feel real.

It's as good as filmmaking gets and it's going on 40 years old. I'd say it's overrated in the way Babe Ruth or Jordan are overrated because how could anyone live up to an infallable myth like that, but this actually pulls it off.

There were only about a dozen of us in the theatre. Two families that each had a middle school aged son, and both of them were completely enthralled. And there was an old woman who came in and sat behind me who had never seen it before. She was gasping at spots, all of the sudden violence moments, like Luca's death. All in all it was a great experience.


Tessio: "Tom ... do you think you can me off the hook ... for old times sake."
Tom: "Sorry Sally ... can't do it."
Tessio: "Tell Micheal it was only business ... I always liked him."

robin hood russell crowe version - 6/10

watched it a couple days ago. i've learned to wait for ridley scott's director's cuts, but this time, i didn't have the theatrical version to compare it to. it took me about an hour to get into it, and then i was into it until the end. it was enjoyable, the plot was easy enough to follow, but it's two days later and i can't really tell you anything that stood out.

8/10

One of the best Fantasy Films of all time . It had some nice special effects even though the film was made in the early 1960's. Ray Harryhausen is a legend in the film-making industry. Jason is also one of my favorite Greek Mythology Heroes.

Saw also today:

PREDATORS - 9 / 10



Finally a real Predator movie and not that AVP crap, this one had great suspense, horror and new expansions to the original Predator movie.... loved it! Gets a high grade considering im a bit biased, Predator is one of my favorite movies of all time, but this one could have been done better... so 9 / 10. It was just missing something extra, that extra spice to the movie which i think somebody like Quentin Tarantino or Robert Rodriguez could bring.

****ing awesome movie. I need to watch it again, since it's fairly complex, flirting with things such as string theory, quantum mechanics, the butterfly effect, time paradoxes, etc. but I'm certain it's one of the best movies I've seen in a long, long time. Disregarding the complexities and the density of the narrative, it's well-acted, with a great score, and often stunning cinematography. It might have gone on a bit too long, but then again, I did watch the extended version, and there's a lot going on here, so that's a minor quibble. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

9.6/10

where can you find this movie? its not on Netflix
