Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

I'm sorry, but I call bull shit. Doesn't explain why he did the sequel as well (unless it was some sort of contractual obligation).

I was going to measure it as a "metric fuckton" but boatload works too.

I remembered those movies being more low radar, but they did quite well.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I'm somewhat indifferent about the movie, but the poster is pretty classic 60's looking:

I really like that poster.

I also really liked Despicable Me.

Enjoyed Men Who Stare at Goats. It's awesome they got Ewan MacGregor (on account of all the Jedi stuff, I mean).

I saw Shutter Island yesterday. It was OK. Wife got the twist right very early in the film. Anyway, in an another group the subject of the Asylum came up, and I thought up some unauthorized Scorsese ripoffs. Shiver Peninsula. Cabbie Man. The Shade of Cash. Furious Bovine. The Just Left.

Lovely Bones - Wasn't expecting to like it, but it was a very tense and enjoyable film, shame about the mawkishness.
Saw 6 - They should've gave up after 4.
The Crazies - Ok
The Road - Boring as fuck.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

The Crazies was OK, I agree, I expected better.

Inception was really good.
Were going to see Salt within a couple of days.

Saw 2 was as good as the original which was interesting/entertaining. It went downhill really quickly after that. Anyone ever see that other movie those guys did about the dolls? Dead Silence I think. It was really awful.

Inception was a pain in the ass. I didn't care for it much.

Dead Silence was practically unwatchable. I know a dozen better movies about living dolls.

I liked it a lot but there were some possible inconsistencies.
