What a shame, I never pictured HBO to pull the plug on a project such as grandiose as this due to lack of budget.

Plus Season 2 had so much potential but the director wanted to finish it before the series ended (the story) so they rushed through history at a ridiculous pace. You'd have a scene before a battle, and the next scene a year later and the war was done.

Don't feel bad, I saw it for the first time last month ;)

Steve Martin is easily one of the G.O.A.T.'s of comedic acting.

Predators: 4/10
- Pointless film for the most part. Tries to replicate (sometimes too obviously) the original Predator but doesn't have the same tension, atmosphere or fun characters of the first one. Other than Adrien Brody (who isn't quite believable here) the cast is a dud. It did have some cool visuals though and the action was better than the recently crappy "Aliens vs Predator" series.



The Trotsky: 9/10



http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1295072/

- This movie surprised the hell out of me. It takes a completely absurd concept/character and makes it not only work but also interesting and funny. This is mostly due to Jay Baruchel (one of the most underrated actors around) who completely sells the character with his performances. Then you have some very likable secondary characters such as his family, his classmates and a couple lawyers into whose lives he basically forces his way into. The "Social Justice" themed school dance and the accompanying costumes were hilarious. There is a lot of historical humour here. I also liked some of the thought provoking themes touched upon even though they were handled in an obviously over the top manner. It has a tone very similar to that of Rushmore with maybe a little bit of Ferris Bueller in there too. It's a small Canadian film but it should be out there on the major torrent sites so look for it. One of my favourite movies in this, so far, weak year.

If you've seen 28 Days Later, you can expect pretty much the same from this. It's still pretty entertaining, though, with solid production values, and zombies that seem fairly adept at parkour. They explain that in a way that's interesting though, being that it was a prototype PED that caused them to turn into zombies in the first place.

Should make for a decent enough flick to watch while handing out candy this Halloween.

6.5/10

I saw the trailer and decided not to watch it.

I couldn't get past the parkour shit.

Well since this thread is still open, I'm re-posting this here because this movie kicked ass:

Entertaining

I don't think I can ascribe a number rating or anything to this type of movie so I just put that it's entertaining. Good for an hour and a half or so of mindless hilarity. If you like the other Jackass stuff you'll like this, if not, this won't make you a fan...

7/10 (I appreciated it as a film more than I enjoyed it, if that makes sense)

Edit: It was A Single Man. The pic is no longer working for some reason.

I can't believe that movie was even made, man. I check out everything with Adrian Brody in it, but I'm losing some faith in him after Predators and Splice.

But THAT scene that you speak of...
