A buddy and I are going out tomorrow to see a movie. We were going to see Green Hornet except it is only available in 3D.

Uh, no. I am not paying extra just to see it in 3D when I don’t really think 3D is anything all that great when it comes to movies. (My brain already processes seeing it in 3Dnwithout the glasses and extra cost involved.)

So we’re going to see True Grit instead. Undoubtedly it will be a much better choice. (And not in 3D.)

Really liked True Grit. It was gritty. And true!

Well, maybe not. But it was really good.

Just got back from my buddy’s house where we watched Piranha 3D (not in 3D). I must say that this movie is AWESOME!

I’m sure all you cheesy-horror film fans out there have a list you keep (at least mentally) of the best deaths from said cheesy-horror films you’ve watched. Well, this film has just supplanted my top five and completely revamped my entire top ten. There are THE BEST horror movie deaths in this movie!

We were going to see The Green Hornet but opted out for that reason too Tah. I cannot stand 3D! We saw Faster instead and it was pretty good. I’m always a bit slow on guessing the whodunnit but Christian figured it out pretty quickly LOL

I thought about going to see a movie this weekend, but when I walked by the cinema on my way home the place was aswarm with hyperactive pre-teen girls rampaging about.  I’m guessing that they were all there to watch The King’s Speech. . .

I didn’t think this warranted a thread of its own, but The Great Gatsby is being (re)done…in Sydney, in 3D.

Since I’ve only read a brief synopsis of the story, I can’t see how there would be any justification to make this film as 3D.

Just the title of this movie sounds awful, doesn’t it? So awful it’s definitely one of those oh-so-bad-it’s-good movies, right?

Okay. Now go and watch the trailer and tell me that it doesn’t manage to pull off the incredibly hard feat of making the movie look even worse now.

Wellllllll…. That looks moderately awful.  Not in the “Awful rubber monster suit” kinda awful, either.  In the ‘Who on Earth thought that this would be a good idea for a movie?’, awful.  That film looks like something that would fall under the category of “Punishment Movie”. shut eye

Really enjoyed Thor. It was pretty good for a comic book/superhero movie.

Also enjoyed picking out the three references to other Avengers (for the upcoming movie). The one to Iron Man/Tony Stark was obvious. The one to Hawkeye was really obvious… if you know who Hawkeye is. And the one to Bruce Banner/Hulk was good and probably the best hidden of the three. (No one I was with caught the Hulk reference. The Hawkeye reference, either. Though none of them knew who Hawkeye was.) If any of the other Avengers were referenced I didn’t catch them. (Captain America and Black Widow are the other two.)

Yeah it wasn’t bad
A bit formulaic, but entertaining in it’s way

I did think I was watching The Masters Of The Universe at one point though.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.
