I dvr'ed several movies off TCM during the moon landing anniversary. Watched They Came From Beyond Space last night. It's a really quirky British alien invasion film from the late 60's. It was a little Doctor Who-ish, a little James Bond-ish & a whole lotta trippy. Despite the fact that the protagonist NEVER seemed to think, "Hey, maybe I should grab one of these guns from the guards i knock out..." & that the ending was a little anti-climactic, it was a really fun movie. Highly reccommended!

Yesterday, I've watched Resident Evil and Gojra. I was actually surprized how good Resident Evil was since its a video game adaptation.

House

I have a soft spot for this movie. It's a solid horror-comedy with some great 1980s creature effects...plus I'm a sucker for the Manfredini score.

Today I HAD to watch G- Force with my mom, younger cousin and younger brother. The movie is a pretty good family flick and pretty funny.

Finally started watching Nightmares and Dreamscapes again, though I only watched one episode - The End of the Whole Mess - pretty good, one of my favorite stories so i liked that they managed to capture both the optimism and the extreme depression of the story...luckily, i've seen Band of Brothers, though, otherwise I think I may have had a hard time 'getting' Ron Livingston as a serious actor and not 'the guy from office space'

Red Beard


One of my favs, and now that I'm done watching my new Kurosawa discs I can get on my Miyazaki-thon before Ponyo comes out.

Funny People was actually pretty funny. :lol:

There were a serious parts in the film, all-in-all, it was decent.

Yesterday, I was having a Harry Potter marathon. First, I've watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone follow by Harry Potter and the Chamber of Serects.

The Incredible Hulk - First time I'd seen it since it first came out on DVD, I liked it quite a bit, payed more attention to some of the complaints i'd heard this time around, but they ended up not bothering me by being explained or over-exaggerated...

Jaws - for the 50th time, doesn't ever get any worse, either

Ponyo comes out this Firday! I have to watch them all before then, just like I read every Hellboy comic ever published in the three days before Hellboy 2 came out!


-I'm not even sure Ponyo will be released in my town. It's opening in 800 theaters and we tend to get most limited releases, but I might have to travel.
